According to the 2017 list, the mid-Atlantic continues to show strong regional leadership, with both Maryland and Virginia returning to the list for the seventh year running. Also notable, Washington, D.C., which is not included in the official list of top states due to its status as a federal territory, tops the nation with 39.83 square feet of space per resident certified in 2017.
The 2017 Top 10 States for LEED full ranking is as follows: Mass., New York, Illinois, Hawaii, Maryland, Minnesota, Georgia, California, Virginia, Colorado and Washington DC.
Collectively, 1,399 commercial and institutional projects achieved LEED certification within the Top 10 States in 2017, representing 314.7 million square feet of real estate. Nationwide, 2,647 commercial and institutional projects achieved LEED certification in 2017, representing 484.6 million square feet of real estate.
More than 40,000 commercial and institutional projects representing more than 6.5 billion square feet of space have been LEED certified to date worldwide, with another 51,000 projects representing 13 billion square feet in the pipeline for certification. (Source: USGBC, Feb., 2018)

The OFFSET Workshop will provide an overview and outline of specific carbon offset programs, voluntary and compliance carbon markets -- California cap-and-trade -- and the rules, regulations and guidelines for participation. Presenters will also outline different types of forest offset projects, describe the stages in the lifetime of a project, accepted carbon registries, carbon stock assessments, verification and current trends in the program.
California's forest carbon offset program, baseline assessments of carbon stocks and an accounting methodology for forest offset activities that could occur in North Carolina, will also be covered.

The bill lays the foundation for a comprehensive energy-efficiency and -conservation policy that would mandate the efficient and judicious use of energy resources, and promote the development and utilization of both new and alternative sources of energy-efficient technologies and systems. It also creates a National Energy Efficiency and Conservation database for relevant information about energy consumption, as well as the application of energy-efficient and renewable-energy technologies.
Additionally, the bill institutionalizes energy-efficiency and -conservation standards and strategies in local governance through the creation of a Local Energy Efficiency and Conservation Plan, and the inclusion of Guidelines on Energy Conserving Design on Buildings in the issuance of building permits.
The legislation also creates an Inter-Agency Energy Efficiency and Conservation Committee tasked to provide strategic directions in the implementation of the Government Energy Management Program, a program aiming to reduce monthly consumption of electricity and petroleum products by the government.

According to a university release, currently biomass is converted into a biocrude oil with a two-step energy-intensive chemical and thermal process. The second stage is refining, where hydrogen is added under high pressure and heat, serving to remove contaminants such as sulphur, nitrogen and oxygen. The University of Calgary have process "simultaneously produces and upgrades bio-oil in one step and without the need for high pressures." The process uses methane instead of hydrogen for the purification process. The uses methane directly in the crude stage, then removes the hydrogen from the methane during the purification process, as hydrogen is still required for removing impurities in the crude oil.
Key to the breakthrough is a catalyst the researchers developed at Canadian Light Source, which reacted with the methane causing it to release hydrogen. The researchers then coated the catalyst, dubbed HZSM-5, with different materials to improve its ability to react with methane.
Initial tests with the new catalyst have apparently shown it is more efficient and lower cost method of producing biofuels from waste, which also leads to better quality, more stable biofuel with significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions.
The research has been published in the journal Fuel.
