Sawdust to gasoline, in just 2 steps

Sawdust to gasoline, in just 2 steps

Posted Tue, 25 Nov 2014 18:05:00 GMT by JW Dowey

How can we make plastics if no more fossil fuels are unearthed, in efforts to combat greenhouse gas production? The answer has long been thought to be in complex lignins or, in this case, the much simpler cellulose .

Wind and its place in electricity generation.

Wind and its place in electricity generation.

The facts and figures covering the power we generate from wind need to be exposed. A least the solar energy enthusiasts regularly tell us just how enormous their capacity is, but the wind business seems more withdrawn, despite the fabulous energy available and its long history.

Hydropower means a lot worldwide

How big a dam? The very largest could just be a step too far, with the vast eco-resources of a river destroyed, along with all that depends on the river’s heart-its resident species. Smaller dams mean much less loss of migration opportunity, more room for natural river systems and less disruption of the river bed and its riparian species.

Fracking still rears its ugly head

Fracking still rears its ugly head

We only consider 2 nations here, with their differing thoughts on an industry that provides cheap and easy energy. The worldwide comparative approach might be appropriate to consider just how often fracking leads to consequences that the perpetrators are very reluctant to investigate. It is up to local people in every nation to decide on their own solutions, but also to look at other opinions where experiences in other countries have taught us what to expect.

Researchers have advanced on yet another front in the race to achieve solar energy for all. The wind power enthusiasts must be wondering when their next development can “eclipse” the achievements of the photochemists!

For months, we have heard of nanotechnologies that involve various methods to convert solar energy into electricity or even make hydrogen, but now the old faithful, gold, has been brought into the equation with dramatic results. Let’s hope speculation doesn’t send up the price, but it shouldn’t.

How should we progress to a world of renewable energy? Well the hydroelectric facilities we have are first-class while the wind and the tidal power industries are developing. Solar power represents to many people what photosynthesis means to the plant world-a cheap, reliable source of instant, if not yet storable, power.

The future for solar photovoltaic cells is bright. With wind and tidal power still developing, the efficient PV cells being developed seem sure to absorb more renewable sun-power than before and really push solar energy as a dominant form of energy. This league table will change a lot in the future but several countries are really setting out their store (and grabbing a part of the big market for cells.)

What to do with CO2

What to do with CO2

Posted Thu, 22 May 2014 11:44:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

The future is bleak, with vast fossil fuel emissions reducing very little. CCS seems always to be the excuse for energy companies to keep drilling, with government aid to help them store the global-warming emissions. As nuclear and renewable energies grow in importance, they still don’t seem capable of replacing fossils. As India’s new government under Nahendra Modi sets its sights on solar, perhaps we can see more large emitters becoming used to the idea of leaving the coal, oil and gas where it is.

Some nations have disregarded wind turbines as an energy source, until now. The added advantage of a protective function against all storms would gain lots of political clout in certain cities we know!

While we sit and wait for politicians to save their bacon or cook their goose with fracking, German renewables and giant power transfers could help reduce prices in more efficient ways.

What to do? Our governments insist we should use new forms of fossil fuels to maintain the energy capacity we have always had. But how many in those governments have any knowledge of the chemistry, the environmental science or even the health effects. Basically, none!

When the world looks back on the Age of Dirty Energy, fossil fuels will be a laugh. How will we manage our individual and corporate needs for electricity when finally a choice of renewables becomes available? What choices will there be?
