Seven-million tonnes of wood by-product is created from logging in BC, while the mountain beetle epidemic and fires have left nearly 140 million tonnes of standing deadwood trees.
A new high temperature, high pressure plant will be developed under a deal struck by DP Cleantech and the Mahachai Green Power project in Thailand. The 9.5 MW power station, fueled by coconut waste residues, is expected to be grid-connected within 18 months.
Stricter legislation and growing MSW volumes have fueled an increase in Waste-to-Energy (WTE) installations in Western Europe, the Middle East, and South Asia.
Nine leading associations, universities, and research centers from seven countries have formed a consortium aimed to accelerate the full-scale commercialisation of fuel cell and hydrogen applications in Europe, under adequate technology regulation.
Shell predicts a growing hydrogen infrastructure to displace long haul and heavy load oil demand in its New Lense Scenarios report. Further, predicting market domination for electric and hydrogen passenger vehicles by the turn of the century.
Researchers at UC Santa Cruz utilize sunlight and wastewater as energy sources to generate hydrogen gas. The technology combines a microbial fuel cell (MFC) and a photoelectrochemical cell (PEC) to create hydrogen.
Municipal solid waste (MSW)-to-energy projects in New South Wales and Western Australia are already in the works, pending approval or funding, due to a New South Wales Energy Protection Agency waste-to-energy policy expected to be finalized shortly.
Assembly Bill 8, which is assumed to be signed by Governor Jerry Brown in the coming weeks, provides a platform to fund fleet purchases of zero-emissions vehicles, as well as establish a network of hydrogen refueling stations.
The USDA is partnering with four non-profit associations, awarding five grants totaling $1.1 million to associations and state agencies backing wood energy projects and pushing for the utilization of biomass generated via the forest health program.
USFS announced transfer regarding Phase 1 of the Four Forest Restoration Initiative (4FRI) stewardship contract from the original Pioneer Forest Products to Good Earth Power. The company addressed plans to build saw and pellet mills, in addition to investing in the like.
