Eco-Friendly Process To Convert Carbon Dioxide Back Into Fuel Offers Way To Close The Carbon Loop

PA Environment Daily

By Jennifer Matthews, Penn State News A new, environmentally friendly, single-step process has been developed to convert carbon dioxide into higher hydrocarbons using plasma, according to scientists and engineers. We need to do something to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Cost-Benefit Analysis: FAQs

For instance, EPA has required pollution controls that dramatically slash emissions of carbon monoxide from vehicles. Cost-benefit analysis is required for all major regulations. It’s also highly controversial, as well as being a mysterious procedure unless you’re an economist.

DEP Announces $3 Million In Grants For Cleaner Truck, Bus Fleets Under The Driving PA Forward Grant Program

PA Environment Daily

The recommended projects will also reduce hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide. On September 29, the Department of Environmental Protection announced $3 million in funding through the Driving PA Forward - Truck & Bus Fleet Grant Program (formerly the Class 8 Truck and Transit Bus Grant Program). Funding for the grant program comes from the Environmental Mitigation Trust Fund (as a result of a settlement against Volkswagen) and the Zero Emission Vehicle Fund.
