Commercial trucking's future is in the details 8.9.2020 Small Business | GreenBiz.com
Commercial trucking's future is in the details Rick Mihelic Tue, 09/08/2020 - 01:45 One downside of a career as an engineer is that you are trained to notice detail. Robert Downey Jr., playing Sherlock Holmes in the 2011 movie "Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows," is asked what he sees. His answer: "Everything. That is my curse." It can make you the invaluable go-to person for information and analyses, and it also can make you the brunt of sarcasm and stereotyping. You are what you are. I had my son snap this photo as we were driving. I thought this one image captured a great deal of salient points I’ve learned after several years of researching medium- and heavy-duty alternatives such as battery electric, fuel cell electric and a variety of hybrid systems for the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE). Let’s start with the obvious first: Feeding North America requires trucks and truck drivers. Trucks require energy. This energy has to be replenished regularly. COVID-19’s impact on the North ...

Could Bloom fuel cells be a solution for maritime emissions issues? 18.8.2020 Design & Innovation | GreenBiz.com
Could Bloom fuel cells be a solution for maritime emissions issues? Zac Estrada Tue, 08/18/2020 - 01:00 In the race to drastically cut emissions in shipping, one of the industry's biggest names, Samsung Heavy Industries, is teaming with fuel cell company Bloom Energy to develop a more sustainable fuel designed to meet steep international targets. Under the partnership, announced in June, the companies will collaborate on creating fuel cell powertrains for commercial ships, potentially providing one critical path to a clean technology future for marine shipping. The goal is to replace oil-based power generation.  Samsung is one of the largest shipbuilders in South Korea, along with the Hyundai Group and the Daewoo Group, and employs nearly 13,000 people . It's aiming to be the first shipbuilder to deliver a cargo ship for ocean operation that runs entirely on fuel cells powered by natural gas. Currently, an estimated 80 percent of the vessels in the world's shipping fleet operate using bunker fuel. "Bloom ...

Could trash-to-energy technology feed hydrogen demand? 15.7.2020 Energy & Climate | Greenbiz.com
Could trash-to-energy technology feed hydrogen demand? Arlene Karidis Wed, 07/15/2020 - 01:00 One novel spin on emerging hydrogen fuel options is "clean hydrogen" made from trash.  Early pioneers of these hydrogen-from-waste technologies such as Ways2H, SGH2 Energy (SGH2) and Standard Hydrogen say not only are they making carbon-free, energy-rich fuel, their approaches also will divert mountains of trash from landfills and waterways, cutting greenhouse gas emissions.   Green hydrogen — made by splitting water’s hydrogen and oxygen using electricity produced by renewable sources — is a small fish in the "energies pond." Today, more than 95 percent of hydrogen is fossil-based and does not rely on renewables. Other technologies are in the mix, such as battery electric vehicles. Hydrogen from waste is an even smaller fish than hydrogen from renewable energy. There are only a few waste-to-hydrogen projects, most which are in early stages and relatively small scale. Still, there is potential for clean — low- ...
