Los Angeles plans pilot of Siemens Highway

By |August 28th, 2014|CSR|0 Comments|

In May 2012, Siemens announced its idea for an “eHighway,” where trucks would drive in a separate lane, attached to overhead electric trolley-like wires. Now that concept will be executed near the two biggest ports in the US — Los Angeles and Long Beach. The South Coast Air Quality Management District has selected Siemens to electrify a section of highway for electric and hybrid trucks. The goal is to significantly cut truck emissions to and from the ports, which produce most of the air pollution in the most polluted region in the country.
Siemens and Volvo are developing a truck […]

General Motors, Proctor & Gamble, Walmart, Facebook make big renewables commitment

By |August 28th, 2014|CSR|0 Comments|

In August 2014, 12 major corporations announced a combined goal of buying 8.4 million megawatt hours of renewable energy each year and called for market changes to make these large-scale purchases possible. Their commitment shows that demand for renewables has reached the big time. The coalition, brought together by the World Wildlife Fund and World Resources Institute, is demanding enough renewable energy to power 800,000 homes a year. And while it’s great to see these big names in the headlines, they’re not alone in calling for clean energy: 60 percent of the largest U.S. businesses have set public goals […]

Algae will power Electric Grand Prix

By |August 28th, 2014|CSR|0 Comments|

The world’s first electric Grand Prix series will power its cars with electricity derived from algae as part of its promise to showcase the best in cutting edge zero emission technologies. Formula E’s sustainability manger Julia Pallé told BusinessGreen the championship organizers have signed a deal with U.K. startup Aquafuel to supply generators powered by glycerine, a byproduct of biodiesel that also can be produced from saltwater algae. The fuel is biodegradable, nontoxic and can be used in modified diesel generators to produce power.

U.S. and Chile navies agree to continue partnership on biofuels

By |August 28th, 2014|SeaNRG|0 Comments|

The U.S. and Chilean navies recognize the benefits of the use of drop-in alternative fuels such, to increase energy security brought about by a reduced dependence on imported fuel and an increased certainty of energy supply and cost. Chile’s calls for 45% of newly-installed capacity for 2014-2025 to come from non-conventional, renewable energy sources, the U.S. Department of the Navy expressed a goal of obtaining 50% of total organizational consumption through alternative energy sources by 2020.

Promising new technology to unlock sugars lignocellulosic biomass

By |August 28th, 2014|Research & Development|0 Comments|

While the powerful solvents known as ionic liquids show great promise for liberating fermentable sugars from lignocellulose and improving the economics of advanced biofuels, an even more promising candidate is on the horizon, bionic liquids. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) have developed bionic liquids from lignin and hemicellulose, two by-products of biofuel production from biorefineries. After 73 hours of incubation with these new bionic liquids, sugar yields were between 90- and 95-percent for glucose, and between 70- and 75-percent for xylose.

Sustainable jet fuels are produced from sustainable feedstocks like waste streams and non-food energy crops.

These fuels offer the single largest opportunity to reduce emissions, while ensuring long term fuel security for the aviation sector.

Sustainable jet fuel blends can be referred to as ‘drop-in’ fuels, because they have the ability to be used without any changes made to the infrastructure, such as distribution and engine fuel systems.
What are Sustainable Jet Fuels?
The aviation industry is the world’s fasted growing transport sector and responsible for approximately 2,5 % of the global manmade CO2 emissions. Even with efficiency measures taken, this figure is expected to rise to 4 – 4.5 per cent by 2050, without any mitigation.

One of the biggest challenges in reducing this impact is to look for solutions that preserve the sectors social benefits, while maintaining its growth.

99% of an airline’s emissions comes from the combustion of jet fuel. Energy sources like solar, electric and hydrogen do not offer an alternative as aviation will be relying on high density liquid energy carriers for the coming decades. Therefore, sustainable jet fuels are viewed as the best opportunity to reduce carbon emissions.

For more information on Sustainable jet fuel, you can read SkyNRG’s White Paper on Sustainable Jet Fuel.
Rationale for Sustainable Jet fuel
In every decision that we make, we follow the vision on sustainable fuels, set by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in the Energy Vision 2050.:

Sustainable biofuels:
• Exhibit minimal impact on biodiversity
• Meet a sustainability standard with respect to land, water, and energy use
• Do not displace or compete with food crops
• Provide a positive socioeconomic impact.

To ensure the sustainability of our fuels, we have established various measures and important partnerships:

SkyNRG has installed an independent Sustainability Board, consisting of the Dutch wing of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF-NL), Solidaridad and the Copernicus Institute of the University of Utrecht that advises us on all feedstock and technology decisions.

SkyNRG is a member of the Roundtable of Sustainable Biomaterials.

We are in continuous dialogue with local and global NGOs to make sure we do not miss important issues in respect to the feedstock we w(want to) use and fuel we make
