[Perspective] Ammonia activation at a metal

11-Nov-2016 | Jessica Hoover, Science , 2016

Although ammonia (NH3) is made on a vast scale for use in fertilizers, its use as a chemical feedstock or as an energy carrier is much more limited. Many reactions that occur easily with its substitution products (amines) are sluggish for NH3, in part because of the difficulty of activating the ...


[Review] The broad footprint of climate change from genes to biomes to people

11-Nov-2016 | Brett R. Scheffers; Luc De Meester; Tom C. L. Bridge; Ary A. Hoffmann; John M. Pandolfi; Richard T. Corlett; Stuart ..., Science , 2016

Most ecological processes now show responses to anthropogenic climate change. In terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems, species are changing genetically, physiologically, morphologically, and phenologically and are shifting their distributions, which affects food webs and results in new ...


Energies, Vol. 9, Pages 922: Biomass Residues to Renewable Energy: A Life Cycle Perspective Applied at a Local Scale

08-Nov-2016 | Neri, Esmeralda ; Cespi, Daniele ; Setti, Leonardo ; Gombi, Erica ; Bernardi, Elena ; Vassura, Ivano ; Passarini, Fa ..., Energies, 2016

Italy, like every country member of the European Union (EU), will have to achieve the objectives required by the Energy Roadmap 2050. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the environmental impacts of residue recovery arising from the management of public and private green feedstocks, activity ...


Energies, Vol. 9, Pages 850: Hydrogen Production from Sea Wave for Alternative Energy Vehicles for Public Transport in Trapani (Italy)

21-Oct-2016 | Franzitta, Vincenzo ; Curto, Domenico ; Rao, Davide ; Viola, Alessia, Energies, 2016

The coupling of renewable energy and hydrogen technologies represents in the mid-term a very interesting way to match the tasks of increasing the reliable exploitation of wind and sea wave energy and introducing clean technologies in the transportation sector. This paper presents two different ...


Bioscrubber treatment of exhaust air from intensive pig production: Case study in northern Germany at mild climate condition

17-Oct-2016 | Fang Liu, Claudia Fiencke, Jianbin Guo, Robert Rieth, Carsten Cuhls, Renjie Dong, Eva‐Maria Pfeiffer, Engineering in Life Sciences, 2016

Treatment by field‐scale bioscrubber of exhaust air, including ammonia (NH3) and the greenhouse gases methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and carbon dioxide (CO2), from 13 intensive pig production houses located in northern Germany were investigated in 2013 and 2015. NH3 removal efficiencies ...


Energies, Vol. 9, Pages 677: Modeling and Optimization of the Thermal Performance of a Wood-Cement Block in a Low-Energy House Construction

24-Aug-2016 | Nardi, Iole ; de Rubeis, Tullio ; Buzzi, Edoardo ; Sfarra, Stefano ; Ambrosini, Dario ; Paoletti, Domenica, Energies, 2016

The reduction of building energy consumption requires appropriate planning and design of the building’s envelope. In the last years, new innovative materials and construction technologies used in new or refurbished buildings have been developed in order to achieve this objective, which are also ...


Tropical anvil clouds and climate sensitivity [Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences]

09-Aug-2016 | Dennis L. Hartmann, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2016

The surface temperature of Earth is being increased by human activities, principally by the release of greenhouse gases (1). Future warming will depend upon the rate at which greenhouse gases are released and the sensitivity of Earth’s surface temperature to those increased greenhouse gases. An ...


Bioremediation at a global scale: from the test tube to planet Earth

04-Aug-2016 | Víctor Lorenzo, Philippe Marlière, Ricard Solé, Microbial Biotechnology, 2016

Summary Planet Earth's biosphere has evolved over billions of years as a balanced bio‐geological system ultimately sustained by sunpower and the large‐scale cycling of elements largely run by the global environmental microbiome. Humans have been part of this picture for much of their ...


Targeting methanogenesis with a nitrooxypropanol bullet [Agricultural Sciences]

31-May-2016 | Stephen W. Ragsdale, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2016

There is no substitute for dramatic reductions in the emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases to mitigate the negative consequences of climate change and, concurrently, to reduce ocean acidification. Mitigation, although technologically feasible, has been difficult to achieve for political, ...


[Special Issue Review] City-integrated renewable energy for urban sustainability

20-May-2016 | Daniel M. Kammen; Deborah A. Sunter, Science , 2016

To prepare for an urban influx of 2.5 billion people by 2050, it is critical to create cities that are low-carbon, resilient, and livable. Cities not only contribute to global climate change by emitting the majority of anthropogenic greenhouse gases but also are particularly vulnerable to the ...
