ArcelorMittal converts CO2 into bio-ethanol

ArcelorMittal

The CO2 recycling process should allow ArcelorMittal Belgium to produce 60 million liters of biofuel and reduce its carbon emissions. Annually!

ArcelorMittal, a major steel plant in Belgium, will capture CO2 and convert it into bio-ethanol.

Within two years, the new technology should be able to start.

The investment for the Steel Factory is about 80 million euro’s. Read More

Tool calculates amount of renewables from biomass

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

Encourage biomass is used as raw material for high-quality materials. Only burn remnants which can’t be used elsewere

3 scientists criticize the ecological benefits of bio-mass in the energy production. Bio-fuels doesn’t decrease Greenhouse gas emissions.

This is the conclusion in the vision document ‘Biofuel and wood as energy sources‘ (in Dutch) published today at the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences (KNAW). Read More
