  • More effective cement production: New sampling plant makes the determination of the quality of refuse derived fuel possible

    Until now an employee had to manually remove RDF materials from the feed and bring it to the laboratory for shredding and reduction”, explained Peter Kraihamer who is responsible at Leube for maintenance, planning and safety. The problem with this was the following: “Every employee took different quantities of material in differing numbers and at differing times. Therefore it was not ...

  • New sustainable `bio-derived` jet fuel industry is achievable

    The report, Flight Path to Sustainable Aviation, predicts that over the next 20 years a new, sustainable, Australia-New Zealand aviation fuels industry could cut greenhouse gas emissions by 17 per cent, generate more than 12,000 jobs and reduce Australia’s reliance on aviation fuel imports by $2 billion per annum. "This study highlights promising options for the aviation industry," said the ...

  • Fuel from fuel: converting biodiesel waste into ethanol

    Researchers have discovered that under the correct conditions, glycerol, a major by-product of biodiesel production, can be turned into ethanol by harmless strains of the bacterium Escherichia coli. Furthermore, yields of ethanol obtained from this method are higher than those obtained from conventional means of production. As society looks for alternative sources of energy to replace the use of ...

  • Invest in `green` biomass fuels

    With the right policies and investment in research, developing nations can turn their dependence on biomass fuels into a renewable and sustainable energy supply, says Duncan Macqueen. Fuels derived from biomass — mainly wood, but also plant and animal matter — produce lower greenhouse gas emissions than fossil fuels, and can be converted into heat, electricity, liquid or gas. Yet they ...

  • Making alternative fuels cheaper

    Original story at MIT News MIT chemical engineers have devised a cheaper way to synthesize a key biofuel component, which could make its industrial production much more cost-effective. The compound, known as gamma-valerolactone (GVL), is attractive because of its ...

  • 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 ...

  • Shanks expands alternative fuels market

    Waste management firm Shanks wants to broaden its development in markets for solid recovered fuel this year. SRF is produced after recyclable material is extracted from black bag waste and the residue is stabilised and dried at mechanical biological treatment plants. Shanks has supplied five of the UK’s cement kilns with SRF as a viable alternative to fossil derived fuels, and achieved the ...

  • EcoPlus, Inc. Offers Update on Pending Commitment to Develop the Company’s Alternative Fuel Production Plants

  • Forests for fuel: European stakeholders discuss the way forward

    As part of the European Union's drive to promote the use of renewable energy, a 'Biomass Action Plan' has been developed which is designed to increase the amount of energy derived from biomass. New research has investigated barriers to greater exploitation of forests as a source of biomass for energy production. Biomass (biological material such as plants) could help mitigate the effects of ...

  • Microbes produce fuels directly from biomass

    A collaboration led by researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) has developed a microbe that can produce an advanced biofuel directly from biomass. Deploying the tools of synthetic biology, the JBEI researchers engineered a strain of Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria to produce biodiesel fuel and other important chemicals derived from fatty acids. “The ...

  • Volkswagen aligns with model fuels Consortium-II

    After a careful evaluation, Volkswagen (Ticker:VOWG) has become the first German automaker to join the esteemed Model Fuels Consortium II (MFC-II). The initial phase of the Model Fuels Consortium was launched four years ago by Reaction Design, the clean technology chemistry leader, to enable the design of cleaner-burning, more-efficient engines and fuels. Volkswagen is particularly interested in ...

  • Algae could solve world`s fuel crisis

    Genetically modified blue and green algae could be the answer to the world's fuel problems. Bioengineers have already developed algae that produce ethanol, oil and even diesel -- and the only things the organisms need are sunlight, CO2 and seawater. Biochemist Dan Robertson's living gas stations have the dark-green shimmer of oak leaves and are as tiny as E. coli bacteria. Their genetic material ...

  • Green Industrial Revolution Needed to Feed and Fuel the Future

    "The so-called fossil-age will make a shift to the bio-based-economy. In two or three centuries from now, people will look back on our civilization as a merely brief moment in history where we in a period of just about 250 years shifted our total economy to coal, oil and gas. To make the shift back to living with, and ...

  • A made in Canada food vs. fuel debate

    Recent amendments to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (Bill C-33) passed by Parliament will give the Government authority to develop regulations for renewable fuels mandating a 5 per cent renewable content in gasoline by 2010 and 2 per cent renewable content in diesel fuel and heating oil by 2012. The government argues the renewable fuels strategy will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by ...

  • Plants: a source of `green` plastics?

    Most plastics are derived from fossil fuels, but new research suggests that soon it may be possible to 'grow' plastics. With around 100 million tonnes of plastics used each year worldwide, finding a renewable and biodegradable source of plastics could help reduce both carbon emissions and landfill waste. Plants have been used to produce plastics for some time, with plastics made from plant ...

  • Dirty Tar Sands Fuel is Headed for the East Coast

    Motorists from Maine to Maryland will soon be filling their tanks with gas increasingly derived from dirty Canadian tar sands oil, a new report from the Natural Resources Defense Council says.
