The story
A new study says tourism accounts for 8% of global carbon emissions – about three times more than previously estimated.

The report, published in the journal Nature, includes details on the carbon footprint linked to tourists’ food, shopping and accommodation as well as their travel.

Korean researchers develop technology to turn landfill gas to green energy

쓰레기 매립장 가스, 친환경 에너지로 변신
Gases from landfill sites are a major source of air pollution.
Korean researchers have developed a technology for converting such greenhouse gases into green *energy.
Park Se-young has more.
Landfills produce methane and carbon dioxide, which are both greenhouse gases.
Some large landfills build electricity production facilities and utilize these waste gases, …but around 75 percent of landfills nationwide are small or medium-sized.
Now, Korean researchers have developed a way to convert the emissions from these landfills into synthetic gas, then into methanol and green gas using plasma technology.

“By using thermal energy derived from plasma for catalysts, we’re studying whether we can reduce the costs of the process.”

The researchers have secured the technology for controlling plasma and boosted thermal efficiency by about 30 percent to 76 percent.
By doing so, they were able to convert up to 99 percent of methane and carbon dioxide into green gas.
Using a vortex to spin the plasma also maximizes the efficiency of the process and cuts costs to one-tenth what they were previously.
The researchers plan to raise the technology’s business value through the operation of demonstration plants and are looking to enter overseas markets.
The study was published in the journal Plasma Processes and Polymers.

China solar panels: PRC is now home to the world’s largest floating solar farm



Views:78794|Rating:4.36|View Time:6:32Minutes|Likes:514|Dislikes:76
HUAINAN CITY, CHINA — A new floating solar farm constructed on a lake in Huainan City, China is said to be the largest in the world.

According to the South China Morning Post, the farm is made up of 160,000 solar panels. These panels reportedly can produce electricity for up to 15,000 homes.

The farm is built over a lake that emerged from a collapsed coal mine, reported Phys.org.

The water from the lake helps cool the panels’ electronics, reported the Smithsonian Mag, citing a Telegraph report on Europe’s largest solar farm.

The farm was linked to Huainan City’s power grid last month, reported the South China Morning Post.
