UK renewables threatened again: REM talks to ADBA about the threat to British biogas

http://www.renewableenergymagazine.com/article/uk-renewables-threatened-again-rem-talks-to-20160602



Once again, the current British government intends to cut support for clean energy. This time, the target is bioenergy, with a proposal to revise support levels for anaerobic digestion (AD) and micro-Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technologies currently eligible for the Feed-in Tariff (FiT). The government’s actions with regard to energy policy thus far have attracted criticism from right around the world, its behaviour showing clear signs of bias in favour of fossil fuels and nuclear and a derisory attitude to renewable energy. Unsurprisingly, the industry has condemned the proposed changes, fearing they will threaten the future of the sector. So what are the likely impacts on the AD sector?

REM talked to Matt Hindle, Head of Policy at the Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association (ADBA) to find out more.

The Battle of the Blogs? Whitlock goes to War...

This blog piece is going to be fairly long, quite involved in its detail, but hopefully very enjoyable if you despise and detest climate change denial, as I do. But first, an explanation of the circumstances.

For those not in the know, Delingpole is a pretty nasty character really. He writes regular blog pieces and op-eds for Breitbart and The Spectator, usually on climate change, but also on other subjects as well. He is usually, and seemingly, unashamedly vicious, as will become apparent in my coverage of him and his behaviour in this piece. Given his behaviour, I am not afraid, occasionally to indulge in a bit of 'ad-hominem' warfare myself, ind…

5 Companies and Their Efforts to Reduce the Environmental Impact of Manufacturing

By Rana Tarakji
The Industrial Revolution has undoubtedly affected the environment. From pollution to global warming, the environment has taken on a lot of the burden for many of the advancements that humans have enjoyed.
Unfortunately, the manufacturing industry is one of the biggest contributors to the significant damages and hazards on the environment. Manufacturing companies are among the biggest producers of solid, liquid, and gaseous wastes that lead to huge levels of pollution.
Although many manufacturing companies still do not have policies and practices in place to reduce their negative impact on the environment, there are many who are taking the lead to a more sustainable and environment-friendly approach.
Coca Cola When it comes to beverage manufacturers, Coca Cola is among the biggest around the world. They have started taking on a more responsible environmental commitment by making water preservation, sustainable packaging, and energy and climate protection among their goals.…
