Researchers Propose Solar-Driven Biomass Gasification Pathway for Synthetic Fuel Production

Green Car Congress

Schema of synfuel synthesis through solar-driven biomass gasification. Solar energy produces both heat for gasification and H 2 via electrolysis. Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) are proposing a new process for producing synfuel from biomass using concentrating solar energy as its main energy source. High temperature heat for biomass gasification is obtained from a molten-salt system in a solar concentrating tower.

Lillian Light Is No Lightweight - The Environmental Lioness of the South Bay is Fired Up, Ready To Go!

Creative Greenius

I began our interview by asking Lillian about the early days of EPN which she helped found in 2001. What was your environmental priority in 2001 and what is it today? We covered: global warming, nuclear power, clean air, smart growth, globalization and the environment.

The Most Powerful Greenius In America

But I will admit that one thing has changed even more than the size of our electric bill and that’s the size of the solar PV system we now need to generate 100% of our electricity – because the same moves that cut our electric bill also cut the number of solar panels we need by 50% too.

If swap stations can be commercialized and the batteries can be charged at Level II speeds and below, they too might offer benefits and be part of the clean transportation quilt. Installed by PG&E with funding from the State, it sits beneath a solar PV array amongst a handful of Level II chargers, including small paddles for RAV4 EVs, AVCONs for RangerEVs, and aTesla charge station.

Since 2001, the share of the world’s R&D performed in the US and Europe has decreased, respectively, from 37% to 30% and from 26% to 22%. In addition to investing in their research and teaching enterprises, these countries have focused their attention on crucial sectors of the global economy, including high-tech manufacturing and clean energy. In addition, emerging economies now invest more in clean energy than advanced economies.
