Canada Opens a Coal-Fired Plant with CCS Technology

The first utility-scale power plant to be equipped with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology became operational this month in Canada. Canada refurbished an older unit, extending its life 30 years and retrofitted it with CCS equipment at a cost of $1.35 billion Canadian ($1.2 billion U.S.).[i] This is 3 times as much as building a similar-sized plant from scratch without CCS and this Canadian plant was only refurbished. Besides the large cost, Canada has found that there are formidable cha...

GM Installing Vast Solar Array at Lordstown Plant

General Motors’ new 2.2 megawatt ground-mounted solar array will be complete by the end of 2014 at its Lordstown Complex, home of the Chevrolet Cruze. When the last of more than 8,500 solar panels are in place, it will be GM’s largest solar installation in the Western Hemisphere. The renewable energy produced by the array is enough to power nearly 1.5 percent of the plant and helps avoid the equivalent of 1,993 tons of carbon dioxide emissions from entering the atmosphere. Tha...

Dispelling a Misconception About Mg-Ion Batteries

Lithium (Li)-ion batteries serve us well, powering our laptops, tablets, cell phones and a host of other gadgets and devices. However, for future automotive applications, we will need rechargeable batteries with significant increases in energy density, reductions in cost and improvements in safety. Hence the big push in the battery industry to develop an alternative to the Li-ion technology. One promising alternative would be a battery based on a multivalent ion, such as magnesium (Mg). Where...
