On August 10, 2016, Red Trail Energy, LLC, a North Dakota ethanol producer, announced that it, along with the Energy & Environmental Research Center, had been awarded $490,000 to examine the integration of carbon capture and storage (CCS). The study will consist of installing and operating a commercial CCS system in a facility producing approximately 63 million gallons of ethanol and 180,000 tons of CO2, and tracking the technical and economic parameters required. The total project is expected to cost $980,000. 'North Dakota ethanol producers are well-situated to take advantage of these low-carbon fuel incentives because there is significant production capacity and ideal geology for carbon storage,' said project manager Kerryanne Leroux, EERC Senior Chemical Engineer, Oilfield Operations Team Lead. Further, '[t]he study will provide local ethanol producers a detailed assessment of the commercial feasibility of utilizing CCS technology within their production operations.' The project will also provide a template for implementation of CCS technology statewide, promoting renewable energy production in North Dakota.

Renewable fuel and energy production solutions reduce your total cost of ownership – Case Study
Biomass represents a fastgrowing solution for renewable fuel, which can help reduce the need for foreign oil and provide an environmentally-friendly alternative for energy production. Typical biomass sources include switchgrass, hemp, wheat straw, corn stover, woody materials, and sugarcane tops. It is no wonder why biomass is capturing so much market interest as a replacement for coal in energy production as it produces less sulfur, significantly less CO2, and less ash, than typical coal fuel production....
Energy-efficient Cooling System for Musikkens Hus (House of Music)
DESMI has delivered and installed highly efficient pumps, pipes and wells for intake of water from the fiord for the cooling system of Musikkens Hus. Musikkens Hus is known as the musical gathering point of Northern Denmark and covers more than 20,000 m2 distributed on nine storeys and among other facilities it hosts four concert halls, five stages, a restaurant, and educational and administrative facilities. For cooling of the impressive building, DESMI was chosen to supply and install pumps and wells for the...
ISO 50001: the route to successful energy and carbon management
ISO 50001 isn`t one of those certificates that you work hard to gain and then quietly forget; it`s the backbone of successful day-to-day energy and carbon management. The international energy management standard draws on global best practice from more than 50 countries. Evidence shows that ISO50001 accredited organisations are achieving energy performance improvements of 10 per cent or more, often through low and no-cost measures. It specifies the requirements for building, maintaining and continually improving...
