  • Electricity generation through a photo sediment microbial fuel cell using algae at the cathode

    Sediment microbial fuel cells (SMFCs) are bio-electrochemical devices generating electricity from redox gradients occurring across the sediment–water interface. Sediment microbial carbon-capture cell (SMCC), a modified SMFC, uses algae grown in the overlying water of sediment and is considered as a promising system for power generation along with algal cultivation. In this study, the ...

  • Airbus CEO talks about emissions, innovation and more

    These are heady times for the commercial-aircraft business at Airbus and Boeing, as airlines place huge orders for new planes. Each is working on more fuel-efficient aircraft to satisfy airlines that want lower fuel bills and regulators who want lower emissions from aircraft. Airbus Group CEO Tom Enders spoke last month to an aviation conference in Dallas and urged the industry to put more ...

  • Master Limited Partnership Parity Act reintroduced to house and senate

    On June 24, 2015, the Master Limited Partnership Parity Act (S. 1656) was reintroduced in the House and the Senate. The legislation would provide investors in renewable energy projects with tax breaks that are currently available to investors in fossil fuel-based energy projects. A master limited partnership is taxed as a partnership, but ownership ...

  • Future of diesel engines with biodiesel economy

    Biofuel is a fuel from biological raw materials. Any animal or vegetable fat can become raw materials for production of the natural diesel practically. Biodiesel economy is really changed after technology was allowed to make fuel from algas, commercial crops, animal fats and even the fulfilled culinary oils can become the most widespread source of fats. This fuel is safe in production and use, it ...

  • Sustainability assessment of microalgal biodiesel production processes: an exergetic analysis approach with Aspen Plus

    Biodiesel production growth rate keeps increasing every year with the hope of replacing fossil based liquid fuel which is near exhaustion. Energy efficiency methods coupled with environmental and economic sustainabilities would render biodiesel production attractive. Algal cultivation and oil extraction processes are found to be energy intensive hence exergy destructive. This study presents the ...

  • Algal biofuels are no energy panacea

    Algal biofuels, like crops, demand land, water, fertilisers, pesticides and inputs that are costly for India, says Hoysall Chanakya Of late, there is heady euphoria over 'green' algal biofuels that are dangled as a panacea for developing countries such as India. While it is true that algal biofuels ...

  • Is Occupy Wall St. Occupying the Wrong Street?

    My Dad and I have a running joke when we’re in the car together. “Look,” he’ll say. “Gas is cheap. It’s down to $3.39.” Cheap, he means, compared with the month before when it was $3.79 per gallon. The joke illustrates a good point. A few years ago we were flabbergasted by gasoline prices that exceeded $3 per gallon. Now we’re really happy when it ...

  • Report: algae-based biofuels to reach 61 million gallons by 2020

    Despite a series of stumbles and changed directions along the road to commercialization, the market for algae-based biofuels will take advantage of strong underlying drivers to reach 61 million gallons per year by 2020, according to a recent report by Pike Research (Boulder, CO). The inevitable resurgence of oil prices, volatility in the energy markets, and expansion of climate change ...

  • Efficiency beyond pizza money: The military’s gigantic bite

    Is efficiency worth the bother if you save only $5-$10 per month on your energy bill? Many homeowners think not. One dad told us his family would rather save money by just skipping a pizza order once a month. That sentiment is not unusual.   But it is hard to negate the economic value of efficiency if you spend $20 billion per year on energy, as does ...
