Fugitive Methane, Eating Elephants, and Brewing Quarantine Ethanol

Fugitive Methane, Eating Elephants, and Brewing Quarantine Ethanol

June 10, 2020 |

Earlier this week The Wolfpack was in the news with a discussion that led from Resilience to the possibilities of renewable methane. We left the discussion with a hint about the potential conversion of methane to methanol, which can serve as a powerful chemical building block or, in China most prominently, as a fuel. We’ll […]

Bacteria-devouring methane produces biofuels and biopolymers

Bacteria-devouring methane produces biofuels and biopolymers

January 5, 2020 |

In Canada, a University of Alberta researcher is investigating ways to eliminate atmospheric methane on an industrial scale while producing sustainable biofuels and biopolymers by using microscopic bacteria that eat methane and convert it into valuable ingredients in biofuels. Ultimately, the idea is to install bioreactors at industrial sites that produce methane. The gas can […]
