Calif. Greenhouse Gas Emissions Fall Slightly (Ind. Report)
California Air Resources Board
Date: 2017-06-12
In its annual emissions and greenhouse gas inventory, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reports that the Golden State's 2015 emissions fell just 0.3 pct from the prior year.

While emissions from electrical plants fell in 2015, driven down partly by the rapid growth of large solar facilities, transportation related emissions rose, due in part to low fuel prices and an improving economy, both of which typically entice people to drive more. Transportation is the state's largest source of emissions with 39 pct.

Since peaking in 2004 at more than 489 million metric tons, California's emissions have fallen about 10 pct to 440 million metric tons. California legislation calls for emissions to return to their 1990 level of 431 million metric tpy by 2020, then drop another 40 pct by 2030.

PNNL Researching Time, Cost Effective Algal Biofuels (R&D)
Date: 2017-06-12
In Sequim, Washington, researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Marine Sciences Laboratory are working to lower the cost of producing biofuels from algae by utilizing an indoor system that mimics the conditions of outdoor ponds. The project -- Development of Integrated Screening, Cultivar Optimization, and Validation Research (DISCOVR) -- is funded by the Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) and has created an integrated screening platform for the rapid discovery of high-productivity strains for resilient, year-round outdoor cultivation via crop rotation.

BETO's Advanced Algal Systems Program aims to demonstrate an algal biofuel intermediate yield of 2,500 gpy per acre by 2018 and 5,000 gallons per acre per year by 2022. The program also aims to cut the total production costs of microalgae biofuels to $3/gasoline gallon equivalent by 2030, with or without co-products.

Researchers are currently cultivating 30 strains of algae, which they will narrow down to the four most promising strains. Of the four strains the researchers will determine which have the highest oil, protein, and carbohydrate content, as well as other factors, such as bacterial resistance and potential for creating valuable co-products. The team will then compare the strains to two well-studied algae strains, and the top-performing strains will be further tested to identify the optimal algae strain for biofuel production.

Date: 2017-06-09
At the recently concluded International Energy Agency (IEA) 8th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM-8) meeting in Beijing, China, the energy ministers of Canada, China, Norway, and the United States, along with delegations from Australia , the European Commission, industry and key organizations, joined together to collaborate on driving further deployment of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS). The countries represented in the discussion host 19 of the 22 CCS and CCUS projects currently in operation or under construction globally.

U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said, "I don't believe you can have a real conversation about clean energy without including CCUS. We have already seen the success of projects like Petra Nova in Texas, which is the world's largest post-combustion carbon-capture system," Sec. Perry said. The system at Petra Nova can capture 1.6 million tpy of CO2 from an existing coal-fired power plant unit, a capture rate of up to 90 pct from a supplied slipstream of flue gas.

According to IEA Exec. Dir. Dr. Faith Birol, "Investment has flowed to CCUS projects where there is a confluence of factors which constitute a viable business case. We need to find more such opportunities, where a commercial case for CCS can be built with reasonably modest well targeted public interventions."

Economists Call for $100 Carbon Tax by 2030 (Int'l Report)
Carbon Tax,Carbon Price
Date: 2017-06-07
In a recently published report, Nobel Laureate and Columbia University Porf. Joseph Stiglitz and former World Bank chief economist Lord Nicholas Stern, meeting in Berlin, have suggested that carbon dioxide should be taxed at $40-$80 per ton by 2020 and be ramped up to $100 per metric ton or more by 2030 to help fight global warming. In the EU, carbon prices are presently slightly under $6 per ton.

According to the economists, the high price and price certainty would give businesses and governments an incentive to lower emissions even when fossil fuels are relatively inexpensive. They also suggest that poor countries could aim for a lower tax since their economies are more vulnerable.

On March 15, 2017 we quoted Lord Stern: "The basic scientific conclusions on climate change are very robust and for good reason. The greenhouse effect is simple science: greenhouse gases trap heat, and humans are emitting ever more greenhouse gases."

Carbon Tax

"Specific carbon price (tax) levels will need to be tailored to country conditions and policy choices. Carbon pricing makes sense in all but low-income countries, which may be more challenged to protect the people vulnerable to the initial economic impacts, may decide to start pricing carbon at a lower level and gradually increase over time." -- Professor Harald Winkler, University of Cape Town,
