Eco-friendly and economical Bosch CNG systems for commercial vehicles Dual-fuel operation with natural gas and diesel

· Engine control units and injection valves for CNG drives
· Up to 25 percent reduction in CO2 emissions
· Low operating costs and low emissions
Gasoline and diesel engines that can also be powered by natural gas are becoming increasingly important in the commercial-vehicle market. CNG (compressed natural gas) is particularly eco-friendly: compared with conventional diesel engines, CNG engines emit up to 25 percent less CO2. With its systems and components for CNG drives, Bosch is adding additional clean and resource-conserving products to its portfolio for commercial vehicles. CNG is also more cost-effective than conventional fuels, and CNG drives thus offer commercial-vehicle operators the benefit of lower operating costs.
CNG systems for medium and heavy commercial vehicles

Saving a million acre-feet of water through conservation and efficiency in California

Pacific Institute study identifies key next steps for California water
 
A new analysis released today by the Pacific Institute recommends specific actions that can annually save a million acre-feet of water quickly and at a lower economic and ecological cost than developing new supplies. The assessment notes that new actions are immediately needed to reduce the growing tensions over the state’s water resources and to address California’s persistent water supply challenges.
This is a key time for California water: the California Water Bond has been tabled for at least two years and may be scrapped altogether. New reviews from around the state are calling for prompt efforts to use technology, economics, and institutional reform to address the …

New theory provides better basis for biodiversity conservation than existing models

A mathematical model that provides a more effective basis for biodiversity conservation than existing frameworks has been developed by a researcher at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
 
The complexity of ecological systems, expressed in the large variation in morphology, physiology and behavior of individuals of different species, individuals of the same species, or even the same individual in different environments, makes the understanding of the mechanisms affecting the diversity of ecological communities extremely difficult.
As a consequence, most theories of biodiversity are either limited to a single mechanism, or rely on highly simplified and possibly unrealistic assumptions. Thus, after more than a century of intensive research on species diversity, the world still lacks a solid, theoretical foundation …

New Siemens study on biodrying: end-product can be used as fertilizer or fuel

Industry requests for a versatile biosolids end-product that could be produced using less energy fueled Siemens Water Technologies  to conduct a pilot study focusing on Mechanically Enhanced Biodrying (MEB) as a new application of the existing Siemens IPS composting technology. The study illustrated how the IPS system serves a dual purpose by biodrying materials for fertilizer or fuel while using minimal energy expenditure, compared to conventional drying methods. It was determined that an automated, agitated bin composting technology could achieve 65 percent solids concentration (35 percent moisture) in biosolids by using only the finished dried product as the amendment.
In the pilot study, the IPS Composting System was found to consistently dry to 65 percent solids …
