Entitled 'Can the UK afford (not) to produce chemicals in 2050?' the report was generated in collaboration with the North East...

New CO2 Removal Technique Produces Green Fuel, Offsets Ocean Acidification

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new technique to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide has been demonstrated by scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The new technique also generates carbon-negative hydrogen and produces alkalinity, which can be used to offset ocean acidification. At laboratory scale, the team demonstrated a system that uses the acidity normally produced in saline water electrolysis to accelerate silicate mineral...

A primary driver of the markets for gasifiers is the need for energy in the forms of electricity and liquid fuels; roughly half of the world´s most affordable electricity is fueled by coal, which is bountiful on all inhabited continents and some islands as well. The four highest growth rate gasifier market sectors are: plasma gasifiers (the fastest expansion by far), CTL (coal-to-liquids), petcoke/residuals, and CTE (coal-to-energy); direct reduction iron (DRI) melt gasifiers are in a...
