  • Not all fuels are environmentally friendly

    Fuel extracted from biomass, known as biofuels, are not necessarily more environmentally friendly than fossil fuels, says a recent report from EMPA (Research Institute Materials Science and Technology). Although biofuels come from renewable raw materials, growing and processing ...

  • Mud used as `green` fuel

    Dependency on oil and coal could be coming to an end. Researchers from the Rovira i Virgili University (URV) have analysed the environmental and human health impacts of an alternative fuel that solves various problems simultaneously. This is the solid waste from the water treatment plants of large cities. The scientists have carried out the first study into this method at a cement plant in ...

  • FTIR gas analyser supports carbon capture research

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...

  • Fuel produced from sunlight, CO2 and water: an alternative for jet fuel?

    Water and carbon dioxide (CO2) can be converted into ‘solar thermochemical fuel’ using energy from the sun and very high temperatures. A new study has analysed the production of this fuel and found that, under favourable future conditions, costs could be as little as €1.28 per litre, with close to zero life-cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Although suitable as a substitute ...

  • Climate change is fueling forest disturbances

    Climate change is already altering the environment. Long-lived ecosystems such as forests are particularly vulnerable to the comparatively rapid changes in the climate system. A new international study published this week in Nature Climate Change shows that damage from wind, bark beetles, and wildfires has increased drastically in Europe’s forests in recent years. Europe’s ...

  • Renewable fuel standard increased for 2009

    The 2009 renewable fuel standard (RFS) will be 10.21 percent to ensure that at least 11.1 billion gallons of renewable fuels be blended into transportation gasoline. The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) established the annual overall renewable fuel volume targets, reaching a level of 36 billion gallons in 2022. To achieve these volumes, EPA calculates a percentage-based ...
