As fuel prices continue to rise, energy management is everyone’s business Market trends suggest that the demand for energy resources will rise dramatically over the next 25 years with the global demand for all energy sources forecast to grow by 57% and the U.S. demand for all types of energy expected to increase by 31% (see Figure 1). By 2030, it is expected that 56% of the world’s energy use...

  Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an area of technology that has received national and international attention. CCS is seen by some as a way to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into the atmosphere and thereby decrease the threat of global warming. Consequently, proponents have increased pressure on state and federal governments to make such reductions mandatory. Although the benefits of CCS...

As spring approaches, the woods around Frankfurt are beginning to get green again. Taking in this annual transformation, it seems like a good time to reflect on how the meaning of the word "green" has changed — through misuse or at least, in my opinion, overuse of the word. Many press releases course through our offices, and more and more (it seems), companies are touting a greener process...

Investment, production and consumption of biofuels are booming, thanks mainly to American and European governments’ subsidy and promotion. In part this is driven by fear of environmental enemy number one — global warming. The simple, conventional wisdom is that biofuels have smaller carbon footprints than competing petroleum-based fuels (petrofuels). Yet, as our recent study shows,* the...

Last month, the first pilot project that used chilled ammonia to capture carbon dioxide from the fluegas (FG) of a coal-fired power plant started operating at the 1,210-MW We Energies’ Pleasant Prairie power plant in Wisconsin. Alstom (Windsor, Conn.; edlinks.che.com/7371-531) designed, built and will operate the 1.7-MW pilot system, which is part of a cost-sharing partnership of 35 utilities...

In a ceremonious sense, the marking of a new year thankfully lets us put certain things to rest and look ahead to a fresh start. At the same time, a majority of the previous year’s challenges are still at hand — if not intensified. The latter is certainly true for the chemical process industries (CPI) in a broad sense and is especially the case this year in the context of greenhouse gas (GHG)...

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI; Tokyo, Japan; edlinks.che.com/7368-533) is marketing a new process that captures carbon dioxide from flue gas (FG) for enhanced oil recovery (EOR). The KM-CDR process uses a proprietary amine-based solvent (KS-1) in a packed column to absorb and regenerate CO2 with less energy than conventional CO2 -recovery processes and with "far less" solvent loss...

A prototype solar reactor that will break carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide and oxygen, or split water into hydrogen and oxygen, will be started up this spring by researchers at Sandia National Laboratories (Albuquerque, N.M.; edlinks.che.com/7368-535). The ultimate goal of the so-called "Sunshine to Petrol" project is to recycle sequestered CO2 and combine the CO product with H2 to synthesize...

What we can do to support its goals Green engineering, as explained by chemists and bio-scientists, includes production of energy and materials from "green" feedstocks, such as biomass and microorganisms, with the intent of reducing energy, waste, greenhouse gases (GHGs) and water consumption. By extension, other contributions that reduce GHG emissions also support green engineering. The obvious...
