The Team, PETRONAS and their logistics partners are working together to deliver the aspiration of a fully biofueled European season following a successful trial in 2022 which saw an 89% reduction in CO2 freight emissions.
The Czech Republic has invited transport ministers from 11 European Union counties to meet to discuss emissions-cutting policies amid a dispute over the bloc's landmark policy to shift to electric vehicles.
The state of understanding science and facts on one side and distinguishing these from anecdotes and often far-fetched opinions on the other side should be concerning to us. Institutions of higher learning can be disinclined to teach needed, applicable or actionable knowledge.
As companies across markets set aggressive decarbonization goals and sustainability commitments to align with changing regulations and consumer demands for greener energy and fuel, the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry is searching for ways to lower emissions.
Liquid-ring compressors (FIG. 1) use the centrifugal whirling of a sealing liquid to create a series of piston-like water columns to trap gas or vapor between the impeller cells of a rotor installed eccentric to its casing.
