Atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and some other greenhouse gases displayed near record growth rates last year. But there was also good news about the state of the atmosphere in 2005.
Solar thermal energy is emerging as a potentially cost-competitive source of electrical power, especially in combination with clean coal, a new study has found
The Lighthouse Solair 5200+ is a 0.5 µm 2.0 CFM or 50 L flow rate battery-operated portable particle counter with built-in printer. It provides six channels of simultaneous particle counting information including four inputs for optional environmental sensors. It features a 5.7" colour touch screen display, data storage up to 3000 data records and a stainless steel surrounding cover.
The Rosemount Analytical OxyBalance oxygen display and averaging system is used for improving gas analysis in large combustion applications. It provides vital oxygen (O2) data that helps operators set ideal fuel-to-air ratios and effectively balance individual burners or sets of burners. The system provides both the averaging and burner variability information that is critical to operators - ultimately minimising wasted resources and optimising plant efficiency.
The Series FLST Air Measurement Station is easy to install - simply connect the tubing to the integral station fittings and then to a differential pressure transmitter, gauge or switch. The product is suitable for measuring air velocity in HVAC building applications.
Less than four months after signing a $2 million, 2 year contract to demonstrate flexile solar panels based on Dye Solar Cell technology to provide portable and sustainable energy, the project team has met the first major contract milestone.
The Joule Centre for Energy Research will be launched at Manchesterâ€™s Museum of Science and Industry, it is the Northwestâ€™s first centre for the development of sustainable energy technologies.
The Australian Government plans to help local communities, businesses and councils take action to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions with the availability of grants totalling almost $2.2 million.
Biodieselathome.net, a company aimed at spreading information about alternative fuels has introduced instructions for making inexpensive alternative fuels at home.
A multidisciplinary team from the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Greenhouse Accounting, the Australian National University, CSIRO, Ensis and the University of New South Wales has reaffirmed the value of tree planting to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
More than six out of 10 New Zealanders back a policy proposal to provide Government cash grants to people buying fuel efficient, low emission cars.
Brisbane and German scientists have teamed up in a $4.2 million project to build and test microscopic sieves that could potentially trap environmentally destructive greenhouse gases before they escape coal-fired power stations and refineries.
An alliance of global companies has announced that energy self-sufficient buildings are a reality. The buildings will be designed and constructed so that they will use no energy from external power grids, are carbon neutral, and can be built and operated at fair market values.
Transpacific Industries Group (TPI) and Australian Renewable Fuels (ARF) have formed a 50/50 unincorporated joint venture to develop a biodiesel production facility in Brisbane, Queensland.
