How to Maintain the Ideal Environment for Growing Medical Cannabis

How to Maintain the Ideal Environment for Growing Medical Cannabis

Medical cannabis cultivated indoors is generally considered to be of higher quality than that grown outdoors. Because outdoor cannabis is cultivated on a much bigger scale, plants don’t tend to be as fully developed as indoor cannabis, and consist of more leaves. However, good quality cannabis plants can be grown both indoors and outdoors, so […]

Refining Biogas for use as CNG Vehicle Fuel

Refining Biogas for use as CNG Vehicle Fuel

Bio-CNG: Clean, Green Fuel that is Good for the Environment and Good for your Car Biogas, or renewable natural gas (RNG), is a gas that is produced from organic waste matter generated at landfill sites, waste water treatment plants or agricultural farms. Instead of simply disposing of the waste material, it is placed into a […]

Minimizing the Environmental Impacts from Fracking Gas Leaks

Fracking gas well

Natural gas extracted by the process of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, generates income and provides employment opportunities, and when it is done properly, can reduce water use, air pollution and atmospheric emissions compared to coal and even nuclear power. However, extensive utilization of natural gas obtained from fracking could potentially reduce the demand for other […]

Natural Gas Leaks: Locating Methane Emissions from Natural Gas Extraction Processes

Natural gas leaks from fracking operations

Natural gas is hailed as a cleaner source of energy than coal, as when it is burned it generates half the amount of carbon dioxide that coal does. However, when natural gas is extracted some leakage occurs, and these natural gas leaks could potentially speed up climate warming. Natural gas consists primarily of methane gas, […]

Monitoring Flow Rates From a Biogas Digester

Monitoring Flow Rates From a Biogas Digester

 A biogas digested (or biodigester) breaks down organic matter in an anaerobic biological process that not only decomposes plant and animal matter, but produces biogas (consisting of methane and carbon dioxide). Many types of organic waste products can be used in a biogas digester, including food waste, plant material, and manure from livestock. Anaerobic digestion […]
