Public anger, Shell is not too big to fall

Public anger: never too big to fall

At present, we don’t have to burn fossils fuels anymore. We have all these renewable energy resources that will supply more than enough energy for current and future energy demands. Read More

Iceland turns CO2 into stone

Iceland turns CO2 into stone

The Hellisheidi power plant is the world’s largest geothermal facility. It provides the energy for Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, plus power for industry, by pumping up volcanically heated water to run turbines

Iceland has done it again. No, its not football. It’s even better. They successfully turned CO2 into stone!

In Iceland, scientists and engineers are fighting climate change by injecting CO2 deep into volcanic rocks. Read More

Heat exchangers for the industry save 60% energy

wastewater, waste, heat exchange, climate change, co2, footprint, industry, carbon

Depending on the chosen system, up to 60% of savings can be achieved: in general a payback of between 1 and 5 years.

In industry, lots of hot water is used for cleaning. Hot water of 60 to 80 ° C is very common. During the industrial process a lot of heat flows directly with the wastewater into the sewer.

What a waste of energy! With Regain heat exchangers, heat can be recovered from wastewater. Read More

Build your energy neutral house and stop global warming

Build energy neutral

The energy neutral residence was the first passive house in Amsterdam – the Netherlands. It was designed by Pieter Weijnen of UPFRNT/FARO

Everybody who is involved at a better world, greenhouse gas emissions, climate change etcetera, thinks about his own possible contribution. For example by building a house which is climate neutral.

Maybe you haven’t notice yet but look at passive houses. Passive House (or Passivhaus) (PH) was first established in Germany and is quickly becoming a standard in many parts of the world.

New energy projects from hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and waste gas

AREF renewable energy fund

Africa launches a renewable energy fund to develop projects across sub-Sahara. 100 million dollars has already been resiled for the African Renewable Energy Fund and will probably be doubled. 

The money will support small and medium-sized independent power producers with grid-tied projects of 5-50 megawatts in size: small hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and waste gas.
