Research carried out at the University of Granada reveals that housewives are more willing to separate glass from other garbage than students. According to this work, a high awareness of the environment does not necessarily entail the practice of ecologically responsible behaviour.
Holiday shoppers who do most of their gift gathering on-line are saving more than wear and tear on their toes. They are also trimming emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere by nearly half a million metric tons, according to calculations from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Installing renewable energy is economically viable for tourist accommodation despite being considered too expensive and inefficient, according to the first Australian study of renewable energy in tourism accommodation.
Hydrogen is the fuel of the future. Unfortunately, one problem remains: Hydrogen is a gas and cannot easily be pumped into a tank like gasoline. Storage in the form of solid hydrides, chemical compounds of hydrogen and a metal or semimetal, are good storage materials in principle, but have not been well suited to automotive applications.
For years, Jonathan Naughton and his colleagues in the University of Wyoming's College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) have conducted research on various wind energy topics.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is promoting the recycling of certain petroleum secondary materials into fuel. This effort, which will revise the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act regulations, is expected to help petroleum refineries reduce waste and capture more energy from each barrel of oil by allowing for the recycling of these materials when they are used at a petroleum refinery for the production of synthesis gas fuel.
China Technology Development Group Corporation, a provider of clean and renewable energy products and solutions focusing on solar energy business in China, today announced that it has completed another step in its strategic plan to focus the Company's management and operating resources on the principal business of solar energy.
San Diego Gas & Electric today announced it has launched a competitive bid process for short-term clean, renewable resources for the 2008-12 timeframe to help meet California’s mandate for 20 percent of state utilities’ energy from renewable sources starting in 2010.
A Harvard biology professor’s fascination with seafloor microbes has led to the development of a revolutionary, low-cost power system consuming garbage, compost, and other waste that could provide light for the developing world.
Earth literally turned over a new leaf 15 million years ago when an earlier version of global warming changed large parts of the planet from lush forests to open grasslands, a new study by scientists at the University of Florida and other institutions shows.
Home buyers appreciate the benefits of “green” communities, but residents don’t necessarily lead more eco-friendly lives than their neighbors in traditional homes, according to two University of Florida studies conducted in the fast-growing state.
