Gazasia develops clean fuel made from organic landfill waste for Asian market

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.

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.

The Washington Carbon Emissions Reduction Taskforce Report is Out

Sightline Daily

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.

Tunisia Announces 4th Desertec Deal: 2 GW of Solar!

Green Prophet

A clean energy future where the world’s deserts supply huge amounts of solar energy to the whole of humankind is truly becoming reality. But sunlight, a free and clean fuel heats the water for steam.). And if any European nation has not yet signed up for this carbon-free fuel of the future, Still Stenzel, the CEO of TurNur has this offer. Wow, the Desertec vision is barreling into realization!

Why Price Carbon—Can’t We Just Regulate It?

Sightline Daily

Such taxes would nudge the states’ economies toward a clean-energy transition, it’s true, but they would not guarantee that emissions drop to the statutory goals. The authorities in charge of “making them” would be state agencies, but clashing jurisdictions, inadequate legal tools, administrative silos, and potentially perverse incentives across economic sectors make a purely regulatory approach to carbon limits a fourth or fifth or tenth best approach.
