Methane as an energy source for the 21st century
Today, fossil fuels supply about 80% of global primary energy. The consequences are severe for human health from indoor and regional air pollution, acidification due to sulphur and nitrogen oxide emissions and climate change due to rapidly growing greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, there is a clear need to improve the efficiency and the environmental compatibility of fossil technologies, shift ...
Analysis of availability and accessibility of hydrogen production: An approach to a sustainable energy system using methane hydrate resources
It is considered that use of hydrogen as an energy source may contribute to environmental improvement and provide an alternative energy system. Moreover, it is anticipated that hydrogen will be in great demand in the near future for use in such vehicles as fuel cell-based cars. Research and development of a number of advanced methods of hydrogen production (OTEC, water photolysis using a ...
Technical note: Calculations concerning the phases present in natural gas hydrates
The enthalpy change accompanying the phase change of methane from gas to 'cage' enclosure in a clathrate is calculated. It is shown to be close to the heat of vaporisation below the critical temperature. [Received: December 19, 2008; Accepted: March 11, 2009]Keywords: natural gas hydrates, entropy, phase rule, enthalpy change, phase change, methane, gas, ...
Will we ever stop using fossil fuels?
Not without a carbon tax, suggests a study by an MIT economist. In recent years, proponents of clean energy have taken heart in the falling prices of solar and wind power, hoping they will drive an energy revolution. But a new study co-authored by an MIT professor suggests otherwise: Technology-driven cost reductions in fossil fuels will lead us to continue using all the oil, gas, and coal we ...
