Of Fuels and Chemicals Making carbon emissions useful Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA have developed a new system that could potentially be used for converting power plant emissions of carbon dioxide into useful fuels for cars, trucks and planes, as well as into chemical feedstocks for a wide variety of products. The new membrane-based system is described in a paper in the journal ChemSusChem. The membrane — made of a compound of lanthanum, calcium, and iron oxide — allows oxygen from a stream of carbon dioxide to migrate through to the other side, leaving carbon monoxide behind. Carbon monoxide produced during this process can be used as a fuel by itself or combined with hydrogen and/or water to make many other liquid hydrocarbon fuels and chemicals including methanol. This process could become part of the suite of technologies known as carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS), which if applied to electricity production could reduce the impact of fossil ...

Rise and fall of a hooch baron 27.6.2015 Asian Age: India
It is a story like many others from across India — a tale of greed, corruption, crime, and dehumanising poverty. The hooch business in the Malwani area, which has so far claimed lives of 102 people, has been going on for the last three decades. In these 30 years, the authorities did take action against the kingpins on a couple of occasions, but there was no serious attempt to put a stop to the business. Interactions with locals in the bylanes of Malwani reveal many interesting stories of how people made their fortunes from the business by networking with politicians and contacts in the police department. The main accused in the case, Francis D’Mello controlled the business in Malwani for the last 10 years. Even though he is in police custody now, people are still afraid to speak out against him.
