Negative’ emissions technology could be future market for wind, solar, geothermal Three companies leading way to removing carbon dioxide directly from air Three companies—Climeworks AG, Global Thermostat LLC, and Carbon Engineering Ltd.—are betting that a puzzling paradox underlying international climate goals is a business opportunity that can help curb global warming and expand renewable power worldwide. The paradox of the science underlying the Paris climate agreement is t
Importantly, the number of plants with critical-level coal stock has zoomed to 28 as of Mar-2018, with distant plants in western and northern India witnessing greater shortage. Coal India (CIL) reported 7% growth in coal supply to the power sector during FY18; yet, coal stocks at operational thermal power plants have remained low at only 10 days of requirement. Importantly, the number of plants with critical-level coal stock has zoomed to 28 as of Mar-2018, with distant plant
CHEYENNE, Wyo: A $20 million international competition to make profitable products from a gas that otherwise would contribute to global warming has entered its final stretch.
The 10 finalists in the contest sponsored by a U.S. energy company and a group of Canadian oil sands producers have shown in a lab they can use carbon dioxide from power plants to potentially turn a profit making everything from concrete to methanol, an alcohol used in a range of products.

THE X Prize foundation, based near Los Angeles, exists to encourage particular innovations that might be useful but from which conventional financial backers are likely to shy away. Previous X Prizes have been awarded for feats such as flying a reusable spacecraft to the edge of space, and designing cheap sensors to measure oceanic acidity. Those still on offer would, among other things, reward the mapping of Earth’s sea floor, and a way of extracting water from air using ren
Renewable energy generation may have grown at a rapid pace in India in the past few years but coal will continue to occupy a significant role in the country's energy mix for a long time to come, Benjamin Sporton, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of World Coal Association told ETEnergyWorld in an interview. Edited excerpts..
