  • Rethinking Carbon Dioxide: From a pollutant to an asset

    With global greenhouse gas emissions still on the rise, despite decades of talk about curbing them, maybe the time has come to think differently about the climate crisis. Yes, we need to burn less coal, oil and natural gas, but clearly fossil fuels are going to be around for awhile. So why not try to clean up the mess they make? That's what a handful of prominent scientists are trying to do by ...

  • New process removes sulfur components, carbon dioxide from power plant emissions

    The Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has developed a reusable organic liquid that can pull harmful gases such as carbon dioxide or sulfur dioxide out of industrial emissions from power plants. The process could directly replace current methods and allow power plants to capture double the amount of harmful gases in a way that uses no water, less energy and saves money. ...

  • Reduce, reuse, recycle...energy

    The United States throws away a staggering amount of energy that could be cheaply and easily captured and used, according to the latest issue of World Watch magazine. Waste-energy recycling-which captures smokestack waste and other wasted energy and puts it to work-currently contributes about 10,000 megawatts of electric power to the U.S. national total each year. But a recent study ...

  • New! whitepaper recycling lightweight automobiles

    Lightweight design is an important factor to reduce greenhouse gas emissions of automobiles. Nevertheless, not every weight savings inevitably reduces emissions. On the one hand, materials of lower weight need more energy to produce but, on the other hand, they reduce the consumption in the useful life. Only a consideration of the entire life of the automobile can determine if the lightweight ...

  • Science opens routes to energy recycling

    Molecular biology has been used by scientists in the US to make a catalyst that can split water into hydrogen and oxygen. It means that a truly renewable biotechnological material could be used to help cars run on water. In China, chemists have announced a nanofabric – a catalyst put together atoms at a time – that could begin the process of turning the greenhouse gas carbon ...

  • Combining brine management with carbon capture

    Water shortages are an urgent issue in many areas of the world and it is likely that the construction of desalination plants will increase to meet the rising demand for fresh water. A new study has evaluated a combined process to manage both the brine by-product from desalination plants and capture carbon dioxide. Desalination separates seawater (or inland saline or salty water) into fresh water ...

  • ABB emissions reductions beat expectations in Switzerland

    When Switzerland agreed to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 10 percent in the two decades through 2010, ABB set out to meet the same goal in its local operations. Part five of our series on saving energy in our own facilities shows that the actual savings achieved have been more than five times bigger. ABB's CO2 emissions in Switzerland have been reduced by about 55 percent, or 10,000 tons per ...
