Algae returns as fuel for our future

Green Prophet

Researchers at Tel Aviv University have revealed how microalgae produce hydrogen, a clean fuel of the future, and suggest a possible mechanism to jumpstart mass production of this environmentally-friendly energy source. Armed with this discovery, the team harnessed genetic engineering to increase algae ‘s production of this clean energy source 400 percent. Answering the need for clean energy.

Solar powered hydrogen filling station opens in Germany

EcoFriend

Fraunhofer ISE has opened a public hydrogen filling station in Freiburg, Germany, which has been created to serve as a demonstration platform for a clean fuel dispensing station network that is planned for the state. While many worry about the energy required to electrolyze water to produce hydrogen, this self sufficient filling station makes use of clean solar energy for the process. Solar-Powered Hydrogen fuel station opens Woodland! The new fuel.

Sasher says that by filling 15 percent of your car’s gas tank with ethanol the corn-based alternative fuel and the rest with gasoline, you can bring down the price-per-gallon from $3 to about $2.40. Douglas Durante, at the Clean Fuels Development Coalition, is all for ethanol or other alternatives to gasoline, but he worries that people may not know what they’re getting into when they purchase a still.

In particular, the transportation sector needs an integrated approach with land-use policies, transit oriented development, and alternatives to current single occupancy vehicles such as adequate transit, zero emissions vehicles, and alternative fuel infrastructure. Washington could invest carbon revenue in clean energy and transportation options for a smooth transition to a post-carbon economy. Shift investments away from pollution and towards clean solutions.

For years — at least a decade — I refused to buy gas at Exxon and would ask my friends to indulge my boycott, especially when Exxon dragged it’s feet cleaning up. While I’m 100% behind the idea of getting rid of personal cars altogether, like those happy biking Germans , or of running ALL cars on non-fossil fuel alternatives by 2030 (as Sweden built into their recent energy and climate bill), the thing is, these initiatives will take time.
