Introduction. De-carbonising global electricity generation is seen as key to stabilise atmospheric greenhouse gas levels (Edenhofer et al., ).Biomass production for use in electricity generation (hereafter biomass) is proposed as a renewable energy source that can contribute to the mitigation of climate change through direct CO 2 sequestration and through the replacement of higher CO 2 Cited by: 8.

The proposed project Unconventional plants for biomass feedstocks in semi-arid west Texas book create a multidisciplinary graduate fellowship program, starting with four fellows, that connects chemical engineering and soil science.

This program will prepare fellows to address the challenges of producing food, fiber, and fuel from biomass while improving soil quality in water-limited regions. Fellows will major in Chemical Engineering or Plant & Environmental.

Goals / Objectives The project objective is to provide the science-­based underpinnings - through targeted research, education, training and extension - to support the development of sustainable biofuel production from beetle-killed wood and other non-commercial woody feedstocks in the Rocky Mountain Region.

Expected outcomes will provide new knowledge and solutions for development of. Introduction. In the United States (US), the energy sector is responsible for more than half of all water a fraction of this water is consumed, with the remainder returned to the hydrologic system after likely modification of its physical (e.g., flow regimes, temperature) and chemical (e.g., dissolved oxygen) by:   Namibia being a semi-arid country receives little rainfall and the invader bush species competes with grass for water resources while animals both livestock and wildlife need the grass for survival.

Removing this bush has benefits and opportunities, like conversion to energy; it has a huge biomass resource of up to million tonnes. The World Petroleum Council Guide to Unconventional Oil includes a definitive overview of the sector and provides detailed analysis of key areas including shale, oil sands and heavy oil.

The Integrated Energy and Climate Program (IEKP) and the national Biomass Action Plan of the Federal Republic of Germany have set ambitious goals for the expansion of biomass energy conversion by Energy supplied from biomass to meet the nation’s total electricity requirements is supposed to increase from today’s % to 8%, and the share for heating requirements from today’s %.

Though, Mexico’s unconventional gas resource is likely to be very sizeable (estimated by the US DOE/Energy Information Administration at about 16 tcm), almost all of it as shale (US DOE/EIA, ) (Figure ).

The low moisture content in date palm wastes makes it well-suited to thermo-chemical conversion technologies like combustion, gasification and pyrolysis. On the other hand, the high volatile solids content in date palm biomass indicates its potential towards biogas production in anaerobic digestion plants, possibly by codigestion with sewage.

CHAPTER THREE Terrestrial Carbon Removal and Sequestration INTRODUCTION Definition of Terrestrial Carbon Sequestration. Terrestrial carbon sequestration is defined here as the increase in the amount and maintenance over time of organic carbon (OC) in biological stocks, driven by plant assimilation of CO 2 from the atmosphere.

Biological carbon stocks are largely controlled by actively. Rising energy consumption in coming decades, combined with a changing energy mix, have the potential to increase the impact of energy sector water use on freshwater biodiversity. We forecast changes in future water use based on various energy scenarios and examine implications for freshwater ecosystems.

First generation biofuels – Liquid fuels for transportation. Most transportation fuels are liquids, because vehicles usually require high energy density This occurs naturally in liquids and solids.

For instance, the “Texas Regional Entity” electricity producing region, which includes most of south Texas, has the largest estimated water consumption intensity of 47– m 3 GJ −1 (midpoint estimate 96 m 3 GJ −1), driven by a dry climate and relatively little topographic relief, which implies wide flat reservoirs.
