Mantra Venture Group and KC Cottrell Sign LOI for CO2 Electroreduction Reactor; CO2 to Products

Green Car Congress

KC Cottrell is currently in the construction phase of a pilot project that captures and purifies 1/2 tonne of CO 2 per day from an industrial power plant. Powered by electricity, ERC combines captured carbon dioxide with water to produce high value materials that are conventionally obtained from the thermochemical processing of fossil fuels, including: formic acid, formate salts, oxalic acid, and methanol.

Audi e-gas plant qualified to participate in balancing market to stabilize grid

Green Car Congress

The Audi e-gas plant in the city of Werlte in Lower Saxony ( earlier post ) produces CO 2 neutral-fuel (synthetic methane from water, renewable electricity and CO 2 ); it now also contributes toward stabilizing the public power grid. However, regional expansion of wind and photovoltaic generation plants leads to increasingly larger load fluctuations. This has resulted in the plant being accepted under the direction of grid operator Tennet TSO GmbH.

Electric Cars and a Smarter Grid - Green Inc. Blog -

Tony Karrer Delicious EVdriven

Electric cars and a smart electric grid have a bright future, according to panelists at a roundtable discussion on the subject that I attended last Friday in Boston. “I And in a true smart grid, electric cars will not only be able to draw on electricity to run their motors, they will also be able to do the reverse: send electricity stored in their batteries back into the grid when it is needed. In effect, cars would be acting like tiny power stations.

Creature comforts include air conditioning, power steering, sunroof, and electric windows and mirrors. There are at least a half dozen different technologies to power cars with electricity under construction. It is reminiscent of the early 1900’s, when steam, electric, diesel, biomass, and gasoline power options competed on a level playing field for consumers’ attention. The electricity for recharging has to come from somewhere, which means power plants.
