Future Fuels France: Hydrogen squeezed from Rocks
posted by on Sunday, December 15, 2013 - 08:45 PM

gfoat writes "It has been reported that Scientists from the University of Lyon have discovered a way to split hydrogen gas from water, using rocks. The new method may promise a new green energy source, providing hydrogen from a simple mixture of water and rocks. The method uses low temperatures and involves no fossil fuel. This type of "greener chemistry" could promise a route to new sources of free energy at a lower cost. See the full report at bbc news"

Future Fuels MARS: Beagle 2 has reached the Martian surface !
posted by on Thursday, December 25, 2003 - 11:36 AM

gfoat writes "Beagle 2 has reached the Martian surface but still we are not sure if it did survive the 20,000 kilometres per hour ride! It was thought that the friction with the thin atmosphere would slow it down as it descended and the lander would be protected by a heat-shield. Scientists still do not have the answers. Did the two parachutes work; did the large gas-filled bags inflate to protect the lander as it bounced on the surface? When Beagle 2 came to a halt did the lander open up, and did the solar panels unfold? Only time will tell. Reports suggest that the team is conducting a continuous search for Beagle 2. This is not the case - there are only select communication windows when a search can be carried out. The next window occurs this evening when the Jodrell Bank telescope will seek out a signal from Beagle 2. At 10:40 pm it will begin to transmit an on/off sequence each minute - like very slow Morse Code - and about nearly 9 minutes later the signals should reach Earth after a journey of 98 million miles. The next chance to try again with Odyssey will be Boxing Day evening. Read the full details here."

Future Fuels MARS: Beagle 2 En route for the Martian surface!
posted by on Wednesday, December 24, 2003 - 09:18 PM

gfoat writes "Beagle 2 will enter the Martian atmosphere at 20,000 kilometres per hour, friction with the thin atmosphere will slow it down. As it descends, the lander will be protected in the first instance by a heat-shield; Once its speed has decreased to about 1600 kilometres per hour, two parachutes will be deployed in sequence. Finally, large, gas-filled bags will inflate to protect the lander as it bounces on the surface. Once Beagle 2 comes to a halt, the bags are ejected and the lander can open up. First, the solar panels will unfold catching the suns energy to charge the batteries which will power the lander and its experiments throughout the mission. Next, a robotic arm will come to life. When folded up, the Beagle 2 lander resembles a very large pocket watch. As soon as it comes to a halt on the Martian surface, Beagle 2's outer casing will open to reveal the inner workings.

Future Fuels Houston: Feasible moon project?
posted by on Tuesday, April 23, 2002 - 04:58 AM

gfoat writes "Dr. David Criswell, a physicist based in Houston has his way you'll be able to say bye bye to pollution causing energy production from fossil fuels. He suggests that the Earth could be getting all of the electricity it needs using solar cells on the moon. Dr. David Criswell proposes a Lunar Solar Power System, using arrays of solar cells on the lunar surface to beam energy back to Earth. Criswell estimates that the 10 billion people living on Earth in 2050 will require 20 Terrawatts (TW) of energy. The Moon receives 13,000 TW of power from the sun and if just 1% of the solar power was directed towards Earth it could replace fossil fuel power plants on Earth.

posted by on Wednesday, August 08, 2001 - 07:33 PM

gfoat writes "The issues surrounding the production and consumption of all forms of energy are more contentious, and in some cases more complex, than ever. Recent years have seen a wave of megamergers in the oil patch, and most recently the utility sector; the opening of the Caspian Sea fields, which has tipped the balance of global energy economics; upheaval in the utilities sector, as these previously staid companies have begun to grapple with deregulation; and newly commercialized technologies, such as fuel cells and much more efficient photovoltaics, that are emerging as a viable sources of power for the coming decades. Meanwhile energy imports, particularly oil and gas, are still on a slow but sure upward trend as domestic gas and oil production fails to keep pace with economic growth."

posted by on Wednesday, May 09, 2001 - 11:32 AM

gfoat writes "On the 30th of April 2001, Gordon Foat Environmental researcher from FutureEnergies in Woking decided that karting should go green. We all know that we have a problem with our environment and we have all been advised as well as physically warned on how serious that problem actually is. Carbon dioxide is the problem gas, a greenhouse gas that is produced by driving our cars whether we are using them for fun or for work. Exhaust pollutants from petrol burning vehicles cause many problems and one of the key environmental impacts which indoor karting companies have to face, is air pollution from the karts engines. "

Future Fuels Hazlenuts as an energy source
posted by on Saturday, January 27, 2001 - 08:57 AM

Hazelnuts Could be Used to Power Fuel Cells. New Scientist magazine has recently reported that a professor at an undisclosed English University has developed a method for extracting an electric current from hazlenuts. This power could potentially generate enough energy to power fuel cell cars. From the burning of the shells it was found that 15% of the combustion gas was hydrogen. Turkey, as the largest producer of hazlenuts in the world, burns over 250,000 tonnes of shells each year. New Scientist magazine states that this would produce 6,000 tonnes of hydrogen, enough to allow 1,000 hydrogen-fuelled BMW's to travel 20,190 miles each.

Future Fuels USA: World's first anaerobic waste disposal operational
posted by on Thursday, October 12, 2000 - 01:38 PM

gfoat writes "

The first commercial scale plant for anaerobic digestion of municipal solid waste in North America is up and running in Newmarket, Ontario. This facility, built and operated by Canada Composting Inc., is designed to process up to 180,000 metric tons of organic-rich refuse per year. The plant is based on a German technology called the BTA-Process. The process converts the organic volatile solids in the garbage to high-quality biogas (70% methane) which is, in turn, used to generate 100% renewable green energy. Once fully operational, the plant will produce roughly 5,000 kilowatts per hour of electrical and thermal energy. Half of this power will be available to the renewable energy market with the other half used to power the facility. Furthermore this facility diverts garbage from landfilling which leads to significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and surplus carbon credits for trading.

Dave Goldstein President of The Electric Vehicle Association, writes:

The essential problem is threefold:

(1) Growth in global petroleum demand is exceeding the rate of new discoveries.

(2) OPEC and its allies have succeeded in regaining monopolistic control over more than two-thirds of the world's oil supply.

(3) Rising fossil energy demand is accompanied by rising carbon and ozone-related emissions which adversely impact the health of our citizens and of our planet.

The situation may seem bleak but is not irreversible -- provided that our governments have the fortitude to stand up to the Oil Cartel and to take a far more serious and dedicated approach to adopting and promoting renewable energy technologies and higher energy efficiency. "
