  • What does decarbonising the UK actually mean?

    How can we get further up the road to decarbonising the UK, and what can we learn from other countries? When the North Sea gas was found by accident at a water well in the German city of Hamburg in 1911, it is doubtful they knew that the discovery would be the toast of British energy companies in years to come. North Sea gas, extracted from the many oilfields that have been ...

  • Activated carbons from waste of oil-palm kernel shells, sawdust and tannery leather scraps and application to chromium(VI), phenol, and methylene blue dye adsorption

    Phenol, chromium, and dyes are continuously dumped into water bodies; the adsorption of these contaminants on activated carbon is a low-cost alternative for water remediation. We synthesized activated carbons from industrial waste of palm oil seed husks (kernel shells), sawdust, and tannery leather scraps. These materials were heated for 24 h at 600, 700 or 800°C, activated at 900°C ...

  • How did palm oil become such a problem — and what can we do about it?

    Production of this ubiquitous ingredient is devastating for the environment. Solutions are complex, but they are out there. Last August, from the window of a jet high over Sumatra, I counted nearly a dozen plumes of smoke rising from the vast jungles and plantations below. Some more than a half-mile wide, they looked like pillars holding up the sky. That week the ...

  • Eco-friendly Caribbean Rum case study

    The St. Nicholas Abbey Plantation in Barbados can look back on more than 350 years of history. The method of rum production has not veered from tradition. The process has, however, become more eco-friendly - the boilers being used in the distillery are no longer run with oil but with eco-friendly palm briquettes. Larry Warren, whose family assumed responsibility for the 400-acre plantation in ...

  • Bio-oil upgraded by catalytic co-pyrolysis of sawdust with tyre

    We have investigated the improvement in the quality of bio-oils by catalytic co-pyrolysis of sawdust and tyre mixture in an integrated reactor. The vapours from co-pyrolysis are allowed to pass through a desulfurising layer composed of zinc oxide and then through the catalytic layer consisting of silver (Ag), palladium (Pd), molybdenum (Mo), or vanadium (V) supported over SBA-15 or HZSM-5. The ...

  • Meeting regulations and improving quality case study

    A UK-based waste oil collector was using emulsifiers and heat to drop water out of waste lube oils and fuels. The processed oil with 0.5-1.0% water was being filtered in a centrifuge. The company installed Sequoia’s efficient water evaporation equipment which produces oil with less than 0.1% water. As a result, the centrifuge works more efficiently. Ultimately, the company makes a recycled ...
