Audi partner Joule announces its CO2-recycled ethanol meets US and Euro specs; $40M financing

Green Car Congress

Unlike processes requiring the fermentation of sugars from corn, cellulose or other biomass materials, Joule uses engineered biocatalysts to recycle industrial CO 2 emissions directly into ethanol, avoiding the use of crops, arable land and fresh water. New financing. Joule also announced the closing of $40 million in private equity and venture debt financing, supporting the company’s growth towards commercialization.

In oil fields such as Whiting’s, the injected CO 2 mixes with the oil that is left behind in the primary oil-well production and the secondary water-injection stage. geologically sequestered) deep underground many thousands of feet below the water table, with no leakage to the atmosphere. Next, the syngas flows through a water-gas shift reactor, in which steam is injected in the syngas over a catalyst bed, initiating a reaction where the CO in the syngas would be.

This heating from the melting Arctic will grow significantly over the coming decades, projected to more than double by 2100 when expressed in CO2 equivalents. Those were multiplied by the social cost of carbon, an estimate by economists of impacts from climate change on agriculture, energy production, water availability, sea level rise and flooding and other factors. Rapid melting of the Arctic region could carry a minimum global cost of US$2.4

The past decade was the first in two centuries with increasing CO2 emissions intensities, owing to a “coal revival”, in contrast with the rapid conversion to natural gas in the 1990s. Last year’s survey called for a major overhaul of the machinery for international finance, aid and trade.

The 15 th Congress, also known as the 15 th Conference of Parties, or COP 15, was initially intended to be a largely procedural summit, with many major negotiating points settled and most environmental ministers prepared to sign a binding emissions treaty that contained specific emissions targets as well as commitments to financing structures. Specifically, they would focus on emissions reductions as well as financing, with negotiations for the two issues separated from one another. [

Because buildings in California are responsible for 23% of all our greenhouse gas emissions for one thing, so when you cut energy use in existing housing you’re cutting the CO2 we pump into the atmosphere. Since it provides easy financing for solar PV and energy efficiency, AB 811 fits into all this like a hand-in-glove.
