Decarbonising shipping – any port in a storm

By [Energy Central] Charley Rattan Methanol Methanol (one oxygen, one carbon, and four hydrogen atoms) emits CO2 on combustion, so ‘green methanol’ requires an offsetting lifecycle pathway in order to be sustainable. Thus, it needs to use ‘green’ hydrogen and air-captured CO2 as feedstocks, or to use 100% bio-sourced methane. There is an accelerating order…

Solar farm transformers reduce installation footprints and improve fire and environmental safety with FR3® natural ester dielectric fluid

By Ya’el McLoud Sabine Bowers As the Cargill global renewable energy leader for bioindustrial power systems, Sabine Bowers is on the forefront of the world’s energy transition. While her knowledge of sustainable energy spans all areas of renewables, she has a particular focus on the use of natural ester dielectric fluids, such as the Cargill…

By [Energy Central] Charley Rattan Technology Data for Renewable Fuels Data for a number of technologies to convert biomass and other kind of renewable energy into liquid and gaseous fuels. The catalogue covers both existing technologies and new technologies under development. Brief technology description Brief description for non-engineers of how the technology works and for…

Inexpensive, carbon-neutral biofuels are finally possible

When it comes to making fuel from plants, the first step has always been the hardest — breaking down the plant matter. A new study finds that introducing a simple, renewable chemical to the pretreatment step can finally make next-generation biofuel production both cost-effective and carbon neutral.

The post “Massive boost” or biodiversity disaster? Tension mounts over fate of Robbins Island wind farm appeared first on RenewEconomy. Read Full Article Here For…

Scaling Direct Air Capture (DAC): A moonshot or the sky’s the limit?

By [Energy Central] Charley Rattan Scaling Direct Air Capture (DAC): A moonshot or the sky’s the limit? Direct Air Capture (‘DAC’) technology coupled with geological Carbon Storage (‘DACS’, also ‘DACCS’) has recently emerged as one of the main CDR options alongside bioenergy energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS), and Nature Based Solutions (NBS) such…
