  • CHP Greenhouses Make Growing Even Greener

    Bearing little resemblance to a typical farm, modern large greenhouses are, in reality, complex, high-tech factories that produce food and other crops. A natural gas Cat® or MWM™ generator set produces electrical power for the greenhouse needs, and any excess electricity can be sold to the utility company and fed back to the grid. The extra heat from the engine is collected to ...

  • NREL Assesses Strategies Needed for Light-Duty Vehicle Greenhouse Gas Reduction

    The White House wants to cut U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80 percent by 2050, but the goal raises questions about one of the greatest sources of those pollutants, light-duty vehicles (LDVs). The Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has taken a close look at what specific combination of measures national experts have determined is needed to slash LDV emissions ...

  • US EPA chills progress towards regulating greenhouse gases

    The Bush administration has asked for public comment on a long list of options for controlling greenhouse gas emissions under existing federal law, but emphasized that it has no intention of pursuing any of them. The announcement confirms that the Bush administration will not move to regulate greenhouse gas emissions and will pass this concern on to the next president and to Congress. The ...

  • Major cuts of greenhouse gas emissions from livestock within reach

    Greenhouse gas emissions by the livestock sector could be cut by as much as 30 percent through the wider use of existing best practices and technologies, according to a new study released today by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

  • Beef pollutes more than pork, poultry, study says

    Raising beef for the American dinner table does far more damage to the environment than producing pork, poultry, eggs or dairy, a new study says. Compared with the other animal proteins, beef produces five times more heat-trapping gases per calorie, puts out six times as much water-polluting nitrogen, takes 11 times more water for irrigation and uses 28 times the land, according to the study ...

  • Cows’ diets get environmental boost

    It is a tiny molecule with a mouthful of a name, 3-nitrooxypropanol, but European scientists say it could make all the difference. It could convert a cow or a sheep from a monstrous methane-producing machine into something a little more environmentally friendly. In doing so, it could increase the energy ...

  • Reducing carbon `hoofprint` can be done, says study

    Soaring carbon emissions from a meat-hungry developing world could be cut back substantially by improving animal breeds and feed, according to a study. Demand for livestock products is predicted to double by 2050 as a result of growing populations, urbanisation and better income in the developing world, leading to rise in emissions from the industry. It is estimated that livestock farming ...
