DTU Increases Biomass Biofuel Production (New Prod. & Tech)
DTU
Date: 2020-07-10
In a recent Technical University of Denmark (DTU) synfuel research project, researchers succeeded in combining two known technologies -- thermal gasification of biomass and electrolysis that is utilized for the production of biofuel -- can produce more biofuel from the same amount of biomass, according to a DTU release.

An electrolysis cell (solid oxide electrolysis cell, SOEC) developed jointly by DTU and Haldor Topsoe is used for electrolysis. In an SOEC, electricity from e.g. wind turbines is used to split water into its two constituents -- oxygen and hydrogen. The oxygen can be utilized in a thermal gasification process, where a biomass such as straw is broken down at high temperature. This creates synthesis gas -- a mixture of mainly hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide. The gas mixture can be used in the production of methanol when the hydrogen produced by the electrolysis is added. Methanol can be used directly as fuel or catalytically upgraded to more familiar fuels used in ships and aircraft.

"In Synfuel, we have improved the two in technologies in several areas, and we've demonstrated that we can achieve higher utilization rates by combining the two technologies than when they run separately. We derive far more biofuel from the biomass resources and at the same time we can use surplus power from e.g. wind turbines to make fuel for heavy transport," says Professor Peter Vang Hendriksen, Synfuel project manager and Head of Section at DTU Energy.

The Synfuel project was supported by Innovation Fund Denmark. Haldor Topsoe, Orsted, Energinet.dk, MIT, Aalborg University, Chalmers University of Technology, INSA Lyon, TU Berlin, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and others participated in the project.

Ocean Renewables Touted as Climate Change Solution (Ind. Report)
Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition
Date: 2020-06-12
The attached report from the Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition's (OREAC) Ocean Panel has found that ocean-based renewable energy, such as offshore wind, floating solar, tidal and wave power, could meet nearly 10 pct of the global annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions needed to remain on a Paris-compliant 1.5 degrees C pathway in 2050.

The report estimates that up to 85 pct of this decarbonization potential will come from offshore wind. 1,400 GW of offshore wind would power one-tenth of global electricity demand while saving over 3 billion tpy of CO2 -- equal to taking 800 million cars off the road.

OREAC is spearheaded by Orsted and Equinor, and includes other major players in the global offshore wind industry: CWind, Global Marine Group, JERA, MHI Vestas, MingYang Smart Energy, Mainstream Renewable Power, Shell, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, TenneT, and GE Renewable Energy.

N.J. Plans Wind Innovation, New Development Institute (Ind Report)
New Jersey Wind Council
Date: 2020-04-27
In the Garden State, the New Jersey Wind Council established by Governor Phil Murphy reports plans to create a Wind Innovation and New Development Institute (WIND) to serve as a center for education, research, innovation, and workforce training related to the development of offshore wind in New Jersey and the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region. To that end the WIND institute will:

  • Establish a wind turbine technician occupation in New Jersey -- Wind turbine technicians are critical for industry growth and are in demand across the country. For each project, an individual original equipment manufacturer (OEM) requires dozens of wind turbine technicians to support installation and provide efficient turbine maintenance throughout the lifetime of the wind farm. New Jersey will need to train qualified wind turbine technicians to achieve Murphy's goal of producing 7,500 MW by 2035.

  • Expand the pipeline of trade workers with the skills and qualifications required for offshore wind;

  • Introduce a Global Wind Organization (GWO) Safety Certification program -- Working in the offshore wind industry requires workers on turbines, including wind turbine technicians, to complete the GWO's safety training. New Jersey currently does not provide GWO training.

    As previously reported, Orsted U.S. Offshore Wind is contributing $200,000 to clean energy research and educational outreach activities at New Jersey's Montclair State University's Clean Energy and Sustainability Analytics Center (CESAC). The company will also aid in the advancement of energy research initiatives, the development of educational events and stakeholder engagement activities.

    Date: 2019-08-02
    In London, only two weeks after moving into No.10 Downing Street, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is being lobbied by a green policy manifesto from the Aldersgate Group. The manifesto -- Building a Competitive, Net-Zero Emissions and Climate-Ready Economy -- outlines various measures Aldergate Group members believe will accelerate the UK's decarbonisation progress while boosting environmental protections and growing the economy.

    The Aldersgate Group's recommendations include: binding energy efficiency targets; fiscal incentives for energy efficient buildings; tightening of emission standards for road transport; and an outline of the powers and limitations of the nation's new post-Brexit watchdog for green standards, and others.

    Earlier this week, Johnson pledged to place climate change at the "absolute core" of his Government's actions during his first appearance in the House of Commons as Prime Minister.

    The Aldersgate Group currently represents more than 50 organisations from across the private, public and non-profit spaces, including Orsted, Siemens, Willmott Dixon and Cemex.
