Sheetz Creating E-85 “Clean Fuel Corridor”

Green (Living) Review

ALTOONA, PA, November 2010: Pennsylvania motorists wishing to use E-85, a cleaner fuel consisting of 85 percent Ethanol, will soon have a more consistent source of fuel as they travel between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg. Sheetz today unveiled its “East-West Clean Fuel Corridor” where E-85 fuel may be purchased. With gasoline prices constantly fluctuating, it’s important that we provide our customers fuel options,” added Sheetz.

Jacob Karni’s Solar Turns Brown Coal Into Clean Fuel

Green Prophet

Carbon monoxide and its mixture with hydrogen called Syngas, can then be used as gaseous fuel, for example, in power plants, or converted to liquid fuel such as methanol, which can be stored, transported or used to power motor vehicles. The possibility of converting CO2 to fuel in a clean and efficient manner will turn brown coal into a source of environmentally friendly fuel.

Ricardo and Recycling Technologies to characterise plastic waste derived clean fuel

Green (Living) Review

• Recycling Technologies’ highly innovative PlaxxTM fuel is created from residual mixed plastic waste that is not amenable to direct recycling and would otherwise go to landfill. This can be used as a petrochemical feedstock, a manufacturing commodity such as paraffin wax, or as a clean and more sustainable fuel substitute for fossil-based HFO, which also displaces imported oil.

Green (Living) Review

Gazasia , a UK company that develops waste-derived biofuels, is to begin operations in the Philippines to develop a vehicle fuel made from organic waste products in landfill. Gazasia creates liquid biomethane - a carbon-neutral, sustainable and high-quality vehicle fuel – by cleaning and refining the natural gas produced by organic waste found in landfill sites. Vehicle fuel prices in Asia have risen sharply over the last year and are expected to continue rising.

Researchers: Trees Clean Fuel-Contaminated Soil and Water

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.

I don't think these are "very good points"

Environmental Economics

If this is true, it would suggest that for clean energy to become globally dominant faster it’s better for the U.S. The green lines are the prices of the backstop (clean = green, get it?) fuel with and without a subsidy. A carbon tax and a clean fuel subsidy leads to about the same switch point (points B and C).    Second, once the clean fuel grabs market share it still has the incentive to reduce costs.
