Saudi Arabia Fit to Produce Carbon-Neutral Oil

Date: 2020-05-27
A recently published research paper revealed that Saudi Arabia has a competitive edge when it comes to producing carbon-neutral oil. This enables the Kingdom to proceed with comprehensive applications of carbon capture, use, and storage for future transition to carbon-free oil production, while it can recycle carbon by-products into beneficial chemicals that can be utilized and marketed for use in multiple energy purposes. Published by the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC), the paper reveals that Saudi Arabia is currently working towards achieving a circular economy. The paper discussed ways to coordinate initiatives of Kingdom Vision 2030 in order to achieve green growth in the Kingdom, which means increasing the GDP and continuing economic growth in parallel to cutting carbon dioxide emissions. Saudi Arabia, according to the paper, produces the world’s lowest carbon levels per oil barrel and this gives the Kingdom a competitive edge in the future transition to producing carbon-neutral oil. The paper stated that the Kingdom has an opportunity to become a major supplier of basic low-carbon petrochemicals as well as high-value chemicals by increasing the use of renewable energy and improving the efficiency of the refining, processing, and marketing industries in the petrochemical industry. Titled “Green Growth Paths in The Kingdom,” the paper presented nine policies that promote green growth in Saudi Arabia. The paper notes that the Kingdom's 2030 vision encourages green growth through its strategic goals, which include building new cities, developing national industry and logistic services, and upgrading digital technologies to enhance trade and local content by focusing on industry, mining, energy, and logistical services.

UAF researchers use space-based radar to measure methane emissions in Arctic lakes
University of Alaska Fairbanks
Date: 2020-05-27
One of the many greenhouse gases that is contributing to global warming is methane. Methane is emitted a lot of ways, including from lakes across Alaska. However, studies on how much methane flows up from those lakes into the atmosphere haven’t always been very accurate. New research from the University of Alaska Fairbanks utilizing radar instruments positioned on satellites has led to a breakthrough in lake methane emission research. That research could help climate scientists better see how Alaska’s lakes contribute to the world’s methane emissions. As permafrost under lakes begins to break down, it releases carbon, which is broken down by tiny microorganisms, which in turn, release methane. “Sometimes you’ll sit on the edge of the lake and you can see a little pop,” said “And you might think ‘oh hey, it’s a fish.’ But it could also be a little methane bubble that’s coming out.” Since methane is an odorless, colorless gas, it can be difficult to monitor how much is released by lakes. But not when they’re frozen. “The ice forms around the bubbles; more bubbles are released and [ice] forms around the bubbles,” Engram said. “And the ice creates a time-lapse freeze frame, pardon the pun. It’s a freeze-frame historical record of the methane bubbling.” To study these methane bubbles, Engram and other researchers use small bubble traps to make micro-measurements of methane and then scale them up to the full area. However, she says, those aren’t super accurate. Now, UAF researchers have begun to use what’s called a synthetic aperture radar, or SAR, to better map methane being released from lakes. Basically, a satellite sends a pulse down to a lake. A portion of that pulse bounces back to the satellite in what’s called a backscatter. Backscatters range in luminosity from kind of dim to very bright. Engram and other researchers used SAR to map methane emissions from 48 lakes across five regions of Alaska, including the northern Seward Peninsula near Kotzebue, lakes near Atqasuk — south of Utqiagvik — and the Fairbanks area. Of course, researchers still had to go out to the lakes that SAR was mapping to make sure it actually worked. To Engram’s delight, it did. Engram says the success of using SAR to map out methane emissions in Arctic lakes means the system can monitor thousands of lakes across the state. And that’s not just exciting from a research perspective. Engram says that there isn’t a lot of global data on methane release from lakes, and use of the SAR can help create a baseline to track in the future. That will be useful to climate scientists tracking changes in the atmosphere. Studies show that methane is about 30 times stronger than carbon dioxide as a heat-trapping gas. And while methane is naturally emitted from these lakes, Engram says the amount is drastically dwarfed by the amount produced from those anthropogenic sources.

Pitkin County CO. Adopts Home Energy Rating System (Ind. Report)
Pitkin County Colorado
Date: 2020-05-27
In Colorado, the Pitkin County Board of County Commissioners last month adopted the Home Energy (efficiency) Rating System (HERS) and set strict energy requirements that apply to new construction and remodels and additions over 1,000 square feet.

Pitkin County will require that homes receive a score of 60 or lower HERS score before on-site renewable energy lowers that score to 30 or lower. Pitkin County calls this effort Net-30, a play on net-zero, which is expected to be the county's requirement by 2030. Pitkin County has long required that energy-intensive construction, including driveways with snow-melt systems, be offset with onsite renewable energy or payments to the Renewable Energy Mitigation Program. Now, the county also will require that homeowners with large solar systems that produce 10 or more kWh, install home batteries to store as much as 25 pct of that energy that can be fed back into the grid.

The new building requirements, which go into effect in late July, this year, lay the groundwork for the county to require net-zero buildings by 2030..

Aussie Climate Change Road Map Introduced (Int'l. Report)
Australia
Date: 2020-05-22
Australia's conservative government on Thursday released a fresh technology roadmap to tackle climate change, targeting the use of natural gas, hydrogen, batteries and carbon capture, while avoiding the contentious issue of setting a carbon price.

The latest proposal, which the government aims to turn into formal policy by September, is based on driving down energy storage costs to back up wind and solar power, electrifying industrial processes and scaling up hydrogen production. . Green groups, mining, energy and other big corporations oppose the plan for its continued reliance on fossil fuels, like gas and coal, and are calling for the imposition of a carbon tax to drive green investment.

The technology roadmap is designed to help Australia meet its Paris Climate Accord commitment to cut carbon emissions by between 26 pct and 28 pct from 2005 levels by 2030.

Although Australia is one of the world's biggest carbon emitters per capita Angus Taylor, the Minister of Energy and Emissions recently said it is not Australian government policy to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

NJ Lifts Ban on At-Home Energy-Efficiency Assessments (Ind. Report)
New Jersey Board of Public Utilities
Date: 2020-05-22
In Trenton, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJ BPU) is reporting the lifting of a recently imposed, COVID-19 inspired ban on utilities and energy firms entering homes for energy audit and energy efficiency upgrades.

After the agency sought to limit access to homes, the state's utilities essentially told contractors to end energy-efficiency work to comply with the directive, virtually shutting down programs to curtail energy use. As a result of the shutdown, New Jersey lost an estimated 11,000 or more energy efficiency sector , according to Environmental Entrepreneurs, and others.

The Murphy administration has touted energy efficiency as a key component of its plans to shift the Garden State to 100 pct clean energy by 2050, but it is lagging behind mandates to require utilities to achieve significant cuts in energy use.

Indonesia Scores $56Mn for CO2 Emissions Reductions (Int'l Report)
REDD+
Date: 2020-05-22
In Jakarta, the Indonesian Environment and Forestry Ministry is set to receive a US$56 million grant from Norway as the first payment for Indonesian success in reducing deforestation and carbon emissions under the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) cooperation scheme. The fund would be channeled through the Indonesian Environmental Estate Fund (BPDLH), a public service agency tasked with managing funds related to environmental protection and conservation.

The ministry reported to Norway that the country saw a decline in the deforestation rate in the 2016-2017 period, with 480,000 hectares of forest lost that was believed to have prevented the release of about 4.8 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions to the atmosphere -- a figure lower than the baseline agreed upon by both countries.

Under the REDD+ scheme, Indonesia and Norway agreed to measure Indonesia's results against a 10-year average level of emissions between 2006 and 2016. The annual emissions during that period were estimated at 237 million tons CO2e from deforestation and 42 million tons from forest degradation. Each ton of CO2e under the scheme was valued at $5, referring to the price designated by the World Bank for the REDD+ scheme.
