CUHK Generates Biocatalysts for Biodiesel Prod. (New Prod & Tech)
Chinese University of Hong Kong
Date: 2020-06-26
In Hong Kong, supported by the Research Grants Council and the Innovation and Technology Fund, researchers at Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) are reporting development of a novel method for extracting enzymes from bacteria, which lowers the production cost and opens a new avenue for the enzymatic production of biodiesel.

Enzymes can act as a catalyst to produce biodiesel while generating less waste and requiring lower temperatures than traditional base catalysts. Enzymes are presently too expensive to compete with base catalysts because enzymes require tedious purification procedures and subsequent immobilization to be easily recycled and reused, according to the CUHK research report.

According to Dr. Bradley Heater, the lead author of the paper, "The real elegance of this technology is that the bacteria cells do all the hard work of producing the catalyst -- all we have to do is separate the crystals from the cell debris. Currently, we can use this method to produce an enzyme that converts waste cooking oil to biodiesel, but we should be able to trap other enzymes to perform different chemistry as well."

ePURE Touts EU Ethanol Production GHG Savings (Int'l. Report)
ePURE
Date: 2020-06-26
The European renewable ethanol trade association ePURE is reporting its member's production and use of renewable ethanol resulted in an average greenhouse gas savings of more than 72 pct compared to fossil fuels in 2019 -- an eight-year trend of annual improvements to the climate-change-fighting potential of EU ethanol.

Renewable ethanol produced by ePURE members is refined from European feedstock and works at scale in petrol engines, which still power the majority of new cars being bought in the EU and will be predominant on the roads for the next decades. Promoting ethanol use in the EU -- by adopting E10 or higher ethanol blends; by increasing ambitions for renewables in transport; by taxing energy based on carbon intensity instead of volume -- would help Europe achieve its Green Deal transport decarbonisation goals, according to the ePURE release.

ePURE's membership includes 19 producing companies with around 50 refineries in 16 EU Member States, accounting for about 85 pct of EU renewable ethanol production.

Woody Biomass for UK Power Strips Southern US Forests (Ind. Report)
Southern Environmental Law Center
Date: 2020-06-24
The Charlottesville, Virginia-based Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC) reports it is joining with Biofuelwatch, the Dogwood Alliance and NRDC in the Cut Carbon Not Forests campaign.

The campaign is intended to convince the UK to end more than £1 billion a year in government subsidies to biomass-fired power producers. A large portion of the biomass fuel used in the UK is sourced from forests in the Southeastern US then shipped to the UK -- Europe's largest user of biomass-fired electricity.

"The UK classifies biomass electricity as a carbon-neutral fuel. It is anything but. Cutting live trees, shipping them thousands of miles across an ocean and then burning them to generate electricity both reduces forest capacity for carbon capture and releases more carbon pollution into the atmosphere. It is a lose-lose proposition for the environment and a definite contributor to climate change," according to the SELC release.

Northern Ireland GHG Statistics Show Steady Decrease (Int'l.)
Northern Ireland
Date: 2020-06-24
In the UK, the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) recently released statistical bulletin on greenhouse gas emissions for Northern Ireland (NI) outlines slight decreases for period 1990-2018.

In 2018, Northern Ireland's greenhouse gas emissions were estimated to be 19.4 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent -- a decrease of 2 pct compared to 2017. The longer term trend showed a decrease of 20 pct compared to the base year 1990.

The largest sectors in terms of emissions in 2018 were agriculture at 27 pct, transportation with 23 pct, and power generation at 15 pct. The largest decreases, in terms of tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), were in the energy supply, waste management and residential sectors.

The decreases were driven by improvements in energy efficiency, fuel switching from coal to natural gas, which became available in the late 1990s, and the introduction of methane capture and oxidation systems in landfill management. Northern Ireland accounted for 4 pct of UK greenhouse gas emissions in 2018.

    Notable Quote -- Greta Thunberg Talks Climate Change
    Climate Change
    Date: 2020-06-22
    "People are starting to realise that we cannot keep looking away from these things. We cannot keep sweeping these injustices under the carpet".

    "All that is left are empty words. The level of knowledge and understanding even among people in power is very, very low, much lower than you would think."

    . "Words like green, sustainable, 'net-zero', 'environmentally friendly', 'organic', 'climate-neutral' and 'fossil-free' are today so misused and watered down that they have pretty much lost all their meaning. They can imply everything from deforestation to aviation, meat and car industries."

    "The climate and ecological crisis cannot be solved within today's political and economic systems. That isn't an opinion. That's a fact."

    "Nature does not bargain and you cannot compromise with the laws of physics. Doing our best is no longer good enough. We must now do the seemingly impossible. And that is up to you and me. Because no one else will do it for us." -- Greta Thunberg, June, 2020

    SoCalGas, UCSB Tout Energy Efficiency Projects (Ind. Report)
    SoCalGas, Southern California Gas
    Date: 2020-06-22
    In the Golden State, Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) and the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) have announced completion of two joint energy efficiency projects that will save UCSB 66,000 therms per year of energy -- equal to removing about 350 metric tpy of greenhouse gas emissions.

    Both projects were part of California's joint Energy Efficiency Partnership between state universities and investor-owned utilities. Over the last five years, SoCalGas has supported 184 energy-efficiency projects, saving university campuses 6,000,000 therms of energy -- a $6 million savings -- and providing more than $6,300,000 in incentives through this state program.

    The first of the two UCSB projects began in 2018 as part of the university's high opportunity projects and programs (HOPP's) initiative. SoCalGas and Southern California Edison co-funded the project which investigated how best to update two important laboratories at the university.

    The utilities conducted an energy management plan to document and list the savings, costs and measures to implement an energy efficient system. The utilities identified multiple measures to reduce energy consumption in the building's lighting and HVAC systems by installing occupancy sensors, wireless thermostats and low-power LED lights. The campus also added high efficiency dedicated natural gas boilers to each building. A new chilled water system including a cooling tower, and pumps were also installed. The project resulted in natural gas savings of 60,959 therms, and the university received an incentive from SoCalGas of $152,000.

    UCSB also installed an ozone laundry system to support its laundering of uniforms and sports gear for the university's athletic department which was eligible for a rebate from SoCalGas in the amount of $5,850 and will save the university about 5,880 therms of energy.

    Milking the Plant Report 13 Dairy Companies Produce More Emissions than the Entire State of Florida! (Ind. Report Attached)
    Institute of Agriculture & Trade Policy
    Date: 2020-06-22
    Thirteen of the world's largest dairy corporations combined to emit more greenhouse gases in 2017 than major polluters BHP, the Australia-based mining, oil and gas giant or ConocoPhillips, the U.S.-based oil company. Unlike growing public scrutiny on fossil fuel companies, little public pressure exists to hold global meat and dairy corporations accountable for their emissions, even as scientific evidence mounts that our food system is responsible for up to 37 pct of all global emissions, according to the attached report.

    The report notes "the total combined emissions of the largest dairy corporations rose by 11 pct in just two years (2015-2017) since we last reported on them. Even as governments signed the Paris Agreement in 2015 to significantly rein in global emissions, these companies’ increase of 32.3 million tonnes (MtCO2eq) of GHGs equates to the pollution stemming from 6.9 million passenger cars driven in one year (13.6 billion litres or 3.6 billion gallons of gasoline). Some dairy companies increased their emissions by as much as 30 pct in the 2015-17 period."

    CoBank Calls for U.S. Ethanol Ind. Transformation (Ind. Report)
    CoBank,US Farm Credit System
    Date: 2020-06-22
    A new report from the US Farm Credit System's CoBank Knowledge Exchange suggests excess ethanol production capacity and reduced demand will force the U.S. ethanol industry to undertake consolidations and diversify to "transform its business model to create larger and more financially stable companies with improved operational efficiency by 2025."

    Diversity will need to include higher-margin co-products like high protein distillers' grains for animal feed, liquid carbon dioxide for refrigeration, beverage grade alcohol, and other industrial products, according to the report.

    COVID-19 led to businesses shutting down and people staying at home, causing significant ethanol demand destruction. The industry had one billion gallons of excess capacity at the start of 2020, with that number projected to rise to 3.9 billion at the end of this year before it settles to 2.4 billion at the end of 2021. Strong export growth would help reduce the excess, but current projections do not support such an outcome, the report says.

    CoBank is one of the largest private providers of credit to the U.S. rural economy. With more than $125 billion in assets, the bank delivers loans, leases and other financial services to agribusiness, rural infrastructure and Farm Credit customers in all 50 states, according to its website.
