Comments Off on Congress is letting tax credits for hydrogen-fuelled cars expire at the end of 2014

If you’re planning on buying a hydrogen car – you should do it quickly. That’s because the federal tax credit worth up to $8,000 for fuel cell vehicle purchasers expires on Dec. 31, 2014 due to the fact that Congress didn’t renew it before their holiday break. According to Autoblog , this isn’t the first tax credit for greener vehicles to suffer from the 113th Congress’ lack of action. The electronic motorcycle credit was killed as Congress was getting ready to close down for the season but a house bill managed to extend the Alternative Fuels Excise Tax Credits for liquefied hydrogen and other alternative fuels.

Comments Off on Sweden expands its hydrogen vehicle refueling station network

Sweden is installing a permanent  hydrogen fuel filling station in the city of Gothenburg. The new station will make it possible to travel by hydrogen-fueled vehicle the whole length of the roughly six-hour drive between Oslo, Norway and Malmö in southern Sweden, which already have stations in operation. The station is the result of a partnership between the regional government, the EU, Hydrogen Sweden and clean fuel companies, with the aim of testing new fuel cell technologies and promoting the uptake of hydrogen-fueled vehicles .

US Navy Scientists Develop Process To Transform Seawater Into Green Jet Fuel

Comments Off on US Navy Scientists Develop Process To Transform Seawater Into Green Jet Fuel

Feeling the pinch of high gas prices every time you fill up your car? Be thankful you’re not the U.S. Military . Tired of wasting so much of its budget on fossil fuels, the US Navy has led the quest for greener alternatives, including research by scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) to develop a process that could transform abundant seawater into fuel for Navy jets. If successful their efforts could have a huge impact; in 2010 alone the Department of Defense shelled out approximately $11 billion on “operational energy,” the energy used by military forces in the execution of their field missions. That’s the equivalent of the entire budget of the state of Tennessee. And that’s doesn’t even include all the energy needed to power vehicles and military bases here at home.

Comments Off on Waste as Resource: The Unintended Consequences of Zero Waste

Image credit: Just for Sharing Ideas I was chatting with a friend who took objection to my post on anaerobic digestion . He had no problem with the concept of finding uses for waste, but cautioned that we often think uncritically about what happens next. After all, once you start using waste, it’s no longer waste.

Photo via BabyCare Daily Dung may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of high concept design, but enterprising designers all over the world see it differently: With a little ingenuity (and some careful construction) waste from horses, cows, elephants, reindeer, and even dinosaurs turns into watches, jewelry, shoes, and more which–if you can look past their origins–might just earn a place in your home.
