Bacteria Use Hydrogen and Carbon Dioxide to Produce Electricity

May 20th, 2013 | by Glenn Meyers

Researchers have engineered a strain of electricity-producing bacteria that can grow using hydrogen gas as its sole electron donor and carbon dioxide as its sole source of carbon. Researchers at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst report their findings at the 113th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology

Biofuel Waste Product Recycled for Electricity

September 5th, 2012 | by pressroom

A byproduct of biofuel manufacture can power microbial fuel cells to generate electricity cheaply and efficiently, according to scientists presenting their work at the Society for General Microbiology's Autumn Conference. The work could help develop self-powered devices that would depollute waste water and be used to survey weather in extreme environments

Company Perspectives: SiGNa Chemistry Brings Smart Hydrogen Fuel Cells to the Renewables Marketplace

August 9th, 2012 | by Glenn Meyers

According to Carney, when these fuel cartridges are used to provide electricity, the only emissions are water vapor and a benign by-product, sodium silicate – a desirable energy solution that emits no greenhouse gases or toxic byproducts, from supply chain to application. And once the powder in a NaSi cartridge is depleted, both the cartridge and remaining material can be fully recycled

Xcel Energy Seeks More Renewables in New Mexico

August 1st, 2012 | by GBE FACTS

SPS is seeking, on an annual basis, approximately 88,705 MWh of “other” renewable energy generation as defined by the New Mexico Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), or an equivalent amount of biogas of approximately 665,300 MMBtu (one million British thermal units) to be in commercial operation no later than January 1, 2015. SPS prefers that the biomass resources be located in New Mexico
