The processes for making paper have evolved over hundreds of years, but one ingredient has stayed the same: water. The precious natural resource is vital to creating every sheet of paper in existence, from napkins to notebooks to cardboard boxes.
This Responsible Energy Acquisition conference invites industry and thought leaders to discuss sustainable solutions for the challenges facing energy production in the United States
DALLAS, October 13, 2020 /3BL Media/ -- EarthX and scientific consulting firm Medusa Analytical are hosting a conference highlighting sustainable environmentalism in the energy sector on October 22nd and 23rd at earthx.org. Sessions aim to uncover the connections between environmental stewardship and energy production and acquisition. Speakers will touch on the industry’s most prevalent weaknesses and how they are being addressed technologically, operationally, and legislatively.
A few years ago, when the Rio Tinto decided to expand its iron ore production in Pilbara region of Western Australia, they faced a problem. While the remote region accounts for more than 40 percent of the world's iron ore production, it is also one of the driest parts of the world. Ironically, however, the problem for Rio Tinto's expansion was too much water: the new ore the company wanted to reach lay underneath huge underground aquifers, which meant that the company had to do something with the excess water that came up.
This video is a project of the water stewardship video series by the Ecological Farming Association. This video features Straus Family Creamery in Tomales Bay, CA. President, Albert Straus discusses the farm's energy production system of methane digestion, which utilizes recycled water, and methane captured from cow manure. The methane produced from the breakdown of manure is turned into enough energy to run their whole dairy, power Albert's car and put power back onto the grid. Now that is some powerful poop!
When the Voyager 1 spacecraft reached the edge of the Solar System in 1990, cosmologist Carl Sagan asked NASA mission control to snap a picture of the Earth some 3.7 billion miles away. From that distance our planet appeared as a fragile blue dot lost in the darkness of space. Recently U.S. scientists produced another startling image of a pale blue dot.
