There are large number of options and technologies available today—bio fuels like bio-ethanol-diesels, etc. and waste to energy like gobar gas and commercial bio gas
India intends to transform its waste into energy.
Therefore, NTPC Limited, India’s largest power generation company, has invited interested domestic and international developers to construct 100 waste-to-energy (WTE) facilities in the country under the Swatch Bharat Mission of the government of India. Read More
The University Wageningen concluded that recent cultivation research has led to a reduction of costs of more than 50%. Sustainable seaweed cultivation is necessary to develop new production and market chains!
Let’s introduce to you the SeaFarm: It’s one of the solutions to secure food, feed, green chemistry and energy in the near future.
As per United Nations:
“The world population is predicted to grow to 8.3 billion in 2030 and to 9.1 billion in 2050. By 2030, food demand is predicted to increase by 50% (70% by 2050). The main challenge facing the agricultural sector is not so much growing 70% more food in 40 years, but making 70% more food available on the plate.”
Every day, 600 trucks full of garbage arrive. Sometimes they transport special waste, such as out of date fire extinguishers, waste from hospitals, old refrigerators or electricity cables. Two people are fulltime disassembling extinguishers.
‘Waste is great! “Susanna van der Heide calls from the Waste and Energy Company (AEB) in Amsterdam.
AEB transformed from a company for waste incineration into a commodity and energy company.
New products, including energy are made out of bags full of garbage and other waste.
Their partner in Vietnam produces 4,000 kg wood pellets in one hour. Ten hours means 40,000 kg pellets a day!
Because wood pellets are a highly efficient, energy source, Dutch Milling Technology developed – together with their Vietnamese partner – a wood pellet-firedcooking stovefor all the people who want to cook clean and safe. Read More
Biomass power plants—in some cases, biorefineries—work much like a fossil fuel power plant. A plant-based product, such as wood scraps, trees, switchgrass, corn stover, hemp, sugarcane, corn, yard clippings or even garbage, is combusted to heat water into steam. That steam spins an electric turbine and electricity is created.
Six EU-countries have developed a calculation tool for suppliers of renewable energy from biomass.
The tool allows them to create an insight of the emission-savings if electricity and heat are conversed from biomass. Read More
Researchers think algae might be part of the answer to slowing greenhouse gas emissions at power plants, and ultimately climate change. Coal fire plants release gas into the air and now it’s being trapped and used to grow algae. Then the algae can be turned into other Jet Fuel and Car Diesel. Read More
With Citadel BioCat+ there is up to 17% less input and the energy output almost doubles compared with conventional biomass power plants
We are currently in a revolution. No revolution for power, but more of a – relatively speaking – sudden change of human tools, means and opportunities.
Scientists agree that we are currently in the tail of the latter. Especially visionaries and futurists dare to go further; we’re already in the next phase, or at least in the transition phase, where nanotechnology, network theory and biotechnology are major drivers. Read More
The first 1,55 installations are operational in Tanzania and Kenya. By the end of 2014 that must be 5,000. SimGas starts trial runs in Rwanda and India. Within 5 years they expect to deliver in 10 African and Asian countries.
Like many subtropical regions, farmers in the Sub-Saharan – Africa – depend primarily on wood for energy.
Biogas is particularly well suited to meet household energy needs in Sub-Saharan Africa, while simultaneously improving both soil conditions and household sanitation.
These systems will spark a revolution in the biogas business in (sub)tropical regions by providing unique, off-the-shelf biogas solutions.
