Could it be that the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gas is the same country that spends more on green technology than any other country?
Touted when first announced in January of 2010 as “likely to create hundreds of jobs”, the world’s largest wood pellet plant – a joint effort between German firm RWE Innogy (ETR:RWE) and Swedish firm BMC – cost $170 million to build and occupies about 300 acres in the Waycross (Georgia) Industrial Park. RWE Innogy delivers renewable energy in Europe. BMC is a project and technology development company vested in wood-based biomass.
A collaboration between researchers from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Boston College has delivered a solar thermoelectric generator, or STEG, with a peak efficiency of 4.6 percent.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA, released its national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory on Monday, April 18, 2011 showing that overall emissions during 2009 decreased by 6.1 percent.
