Marine Test & Research Facilities Open up the Deep

Marine Test & Research Facilities Open up the Deep

As any engineer will tell you, developing the engineering concepts for a novel energy production device is an iterative process. For ocean energy, this process is further complicated as any device destined to generate electricity from the marine environment must be sufficiently robust to survive the extremely harsh conditions, all the while maintaining complex operations at sea.

Biogas: what options for Slurry power in the US?

Biogas: what options for Slurry power in the US?

Intensive animal farming produces large amounts of waste – about 75 kg per cow, per day – that is both a source of methane pollution and a potential groundwater pollutant. Using anaerobic digestion to treat animal slurry can provide a solution to this problem, as well as renewable energy. Germany has 2500 farms producing power from on-farm plants, so what would it take for the US to follow suit? Brent A. Gloy looks at the technology, the issues, and the way forward.
