Energy Transition: Total Is Investing More Than €500 Million to Convert Its Grandpuits Refinery Into a Zero-crude Platform for Biofuels and Bioplastics
Of the 400 jobs at the Grandpuits platform and its associated Gargenville (Yvelines) depot today, 250 will be maintained after the conversion. Furthermore, 15 additional jobs will be created on the Grandpuits site in a packaging unit connected to the bioplastics unit.
Through a research partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the corporate giant that once urged motorists to "Put a tiger in your tank," may one day suggest they fuel up with some algae.
The surging urban population and industrialization has resulted in a massive increase of waste generation every year. This trend is particularly growing across emerging economies.
The threat of climate change is looming over us more than ever and one of the burning questions of our time remains: 'how can we create a greener, more sustainable future that still allows businesses to thrive?'
On-Site Power Solution Will Dramatically Reduce Methane Emissions from Dairies by Using Captured Biogas to Generate Electricity without Combustion
Because biofuels are made from agricultural products, fuel production from such products implies the use of agricultural land and crops that can also be used for the production of food.
The potential of food waste being converted to energy is just being recognized. Why waste over 70 percent of the world's food by sending it into landfills, rather than harnessing it for energy?
Comments from the Department of Transport said that planes and lorries that have the potential to be driven by waste could use up to 90% less carbon in comparison to regular fossil fuels.
DLS, a national label converter, finds a cost-effective waste management solution that saves 2 million pounds of label matrix annually from reaching landfills while providing a clean burning fuel source for energy companies.
This is a major breakthrough in metabolic engineering and exhibits a foundational milestone in sustainable and cost-effective production of renewable biofuels and chemicals.
Edd Gent for Scientific American: The need for specially designed engines to run biodiesel is holding back the technology
Biofuels International: Dubois argued that biofuels should be seen as a tool for responsible investment in agriculture and rural development.
Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: Scientists have developed a simpler new process for converting coffee grounds to biofuel.
8 MWe biomass ORC system for the largest pellet manufacturer in Maine (USA).
The flights marked the first time a single-engined fighter flew with 100 percent biofuel. A twin seat Gripen D was used for the flights that took off from Saabs facilities in Linköping, Sweden.
