Is Biomass Heating Really Carbon Friendly?

For people who use coal or oil for heating, switching to biomass will certainly reduce carbon emissions as long as there is a program in place for sustainable management of the resource.

White Lists: A Proactive Approach to Risk Reduction for the Bioenergy Industry

As more species and cultivars are proposed to help meet the substantial renewable energy needs of our nation, more risk assessments will be necessary to identify the truly green renewable alternatives to petroleum-based energy sources.

Converting Waste to Energy - The Big Cover-Up

Since biogas can be used as fuel to generate electricity, the city wanted a means to reliably collect biogas from the BVF® reactor to recover the energy while also controlling odors and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Renewable Packaging

It's important to decrease the environmental impact by reducing the size of the packaging, switching to renewable raw materials, reusing materials, and finally, recycling materials for later use.

Economic Feasibility of Sustainable Non-Food Feedstock Pongamia Pinnata Based Biodiesel Production

Pongamia has attracted the world's attention as a sustainable substitute for petroleum products and its ability to grow and reclaim marginal lands.

Obama's Climate Plan Is Leaking Methane

Natural gas production leaks methane along its entire supply chain - from drilling to storing, processing to distributing.

Energy from Agricultural Waste

Even a small farmer could join a co-op and get in on this trend. These co-ops are growing and are being promoted by organizations interested in furthering the cause of renewable energy.

Producing Cellulosic Ethanol

Ethanol production must move away from the exclusive use of corn, or any food crops, as a feedstock. Our technology will allow for biomass diversification, and the use of the most abundant biomolecule on Earth: cellulose.

Using Algae to Produce Four Key Fuels

At Algenol, algae is combined with carbon dioxide, salt water and sunlight in Algenol's proprietary photobioreactor system to produce thousands of gallons of fuel per acre.

The Benefits of Converting Waste Heat to Power

Waste heat to electricity uses less fuel to produce a given energy output, and avoids transmission and distribution losses that occur when electricity travels over power lines. It also decreases the impact of outages when the power grid goes down.

Plastic to Fuel Conversion: An Elegant Solution to Two Major Environmental Concerns

The process relies on heat and pressure to break down the long hydrogen, carbon and oxygen polymers that make up plastics. From there, these elements are recombined into the shorter hydrocarbon chains that can be effectively burned as diesel or gasoline.

Residential And Commercial Refuse-Derived Fuel Waste To Energy

This report serves as an overview of gasification technologies processing municipal solid waste (MSW) that includes non-recycled plastic.

Cogeneration Goes Global

As CHP systems can tap into a wide array of fuels to operate including coal, biomass and natural gas, there are few restrictions on where they can be installed.

More to Biofuel Production than Yield

With supportive policies, we envision the ability to design agricultural landscapes to maximize multiple benefits.

Controlled Nuclear Fusion:
The Energy Source That Is Always A Few Years Away

In my opinion the potential payoff of nuclear fusion is too big and important for the world to ignore.
