  • How to Make a ?Perfect? Solar Absorber
    The key to creating a material that would be ideal for converting solar energy to heat is tuning the material?s spectrum of absorption just right: It should absorb virtually all wavelengths of light that reach Earth?s surface from the sun ? but not much of the rest of the spectrum, since that would increase the energy that is reradiated by the material, and thus lost to the conversion process.

Some people are altruistic, but almost all businesses are bottom line oriented and will not reduce their CO2 emissions unless they have an economic incentive to do so. There are two realistic incentives: taxing CO2 emissions or setting up a cap and trade program for CO2. Since increasing taxes is politically unfeasible, the most practical approach is with a cap and trade program.

  • Renewable Gas from Wastewater Treatment Plant Fueling UK Homes
    Extracting energy from ?processed poo? to help power homes in the Birmingham area is what Severn Trent Plc, Britain?s second-largest publicly traded water company, is now doing to generate a cost-saving renewable gas.
