Plastics offer many benefits to society and are widely used in our daily life: they are lightweight, cheap and adaptable. However, the production, processing and disposal of plastics are simply not sustainable, and pose a major global threat to the environment and human health.
Tremendous efforts have been put forth by industries to attain sustainability, but plastics (or polymers) are mostly manufactured with non-renewable fossil fuels. Meanwhile, scientists have now come up with a feasible process to produce biobased acrylate resins.
Green Hydrogen Systems, a leading provider of efficient pressurised alkaline electrolysers used in onsite hydrogen production based on renewable electricity, has today signed a supply agreement with Wenger Engineering for delivering electrolyser units for a green hydrogen production project in Germany.
For Aberdeenshire-based Red Stag Materials, meeting statutory Net Zero targets while improving the nation’s infrastructure represents a huge challenge – but also real opportunities.
A Toyota Mirai has covered more than 1000 kilometers on a single tank of fuel, surpassing previous long-distance achievements for a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.
Flemish research centres imec and VITO (partners in EnergyVille), together with industrial pioneers Bekaert, Colruyt Group, DEME and John Cockerill announced today that they are joining forces to invest in the production of green hydrogen. Under the flag of Hyve, the consortium aims at a cost-efficient and sustainable production of hydrogen at gigawatt level.
OGTC has extended its latest Call for Ideas, with the organization set to invest up to £1million in game-changing technologies which will accelerate hydrogen production, transportation, storage, and utilization.
The two companies are working together to develop a small-scale mobile methanol fuel cell solution for stationary and auxiliary power. The target is to develop a solution in the 5 to 15-kilowatt power range.
Shopping habits and escalating consumption of many consumers are inflicting a heavy environmental toll, and while the majority of customers seem hesitant to act "green" on their own, companies are increasingly expected to implement effective eco-friendly tactics.
A polymer-eating enzyme integrated into plastic could help solve significant pollution problems by fully composting PLAs.
