Published July 1988 through June 1999

FROM VOLUME 7, NUMBER 6, JUNE 1994

PERIODICALS... ENERGY SOURCES AND USE


Item #d94jun181

"Fuel-Cell Vehicles: The Clean Machine," R.H. Williams, Technol. Review, 20-30, Apr. 1994.

The energy systems supporting fuel-cell vehicles would produce much lower amounts of greenhouse gas emissions than those supporting gasoline or battery cars. With a major redirection of U.S. research and development, fuel-cell vehicles could be mass-produced by 2010.


Item #d94jun182

"Microalgae A Possible Source of 'Biodiesel' Fuel," R. Baum, Chem. Eng. News, 28-29, Apr. 4, 1994.

Microalgae, which can produce up to 30 times more oil per unit growth area than land plants, are a potential source of lipids that could be converted into a diesel fuel.


Item #d94jun183

"Electricity from Whole Trees," L. Lamarre, EPRI Journal, 17-24, Jan./Feb. 1994.

Describes "Whole Tree Energy," the production of electricity by burning dried sections of whole trees. The process would be cost-competitive with coal and would emit relatively low levels of SO2, NOx and particulates. When fueled by a renewable tree crop, it would release no net CO2.


Item #d94jun184

Two items on the "supercar" from Rocky Mt. Inst. Newsletter (Rocky Mt. Inst., 1739 Snowmass Creek Rd., Snowmass CO 81654):

"Free Wheeling: The Coming Supercar Revolution," 1, 6, Summer 1993. Describes a car of the future that would be very light, safe and efficient, with gasoline consumption of 150-300 mpg.

"Supercar's Broader Implications: Are We Ready for Success?" 6, Fall/Winter 1993. Looks at the impacts of a supercar on energy and national security, oil prices, air quality, global warming, and public policy.
