New Study Projects Geothermal Heat Pumps’ Impact On Carbon Emissions & Electrical Grid by 2050

A modeling analysis led by the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory gives the first detailed look at how geothermal energy can relieve the electric power system and reduce carbon emissions if widely implemented across the United States within the next few decades. Researchers created a simulation model of the … [continued]

Steel’s Outsized Carbon Emissions Will Shrink Rapidly In Coming Decades Even As Demand Rises

With more scrapping and more direct reduction using lower carbon technologies such as Midrex’ DRI and HYBRIT every decade, and the likely creation of those facilities closer to iron ore mines, high-emissions furnaces will go out of business over the coming decades, unable to decarbonize.

Seco Seals Vs. Uncontrolled Carbon Emissions

Last week, I sat down with SECO SEALS’ president and senior engineer, Jim Scott, to talk about the importance of proper, permanent, 100% leak-free seals in automotive and aerospace applications. It was a conversation which, if we’re being honest, I did not expect to turn into a high-tech, planet-saving thriller … [continued]
