End is in sight for EnAlgae (European algae project)

2015 is the final year for the EnAlgae project, and after four years’ study, experimentation and dissemination the end is now very firmly in sight. Partners working on the project are busy finishing off reports and working on presenting their final conclusions. This will come to fruition when the project holds its final close-out conference in the Autumn. The event is due to take place in Brussels on 29th and 30th September. Further details on this event will be published in due course.

Laborelec is contributing to EnAlgae by helping to define and develop the decision support tool, a major output of the project. The tool will be used provide investors and policy-makers with the necessary means to tailor algal-based energy solutions to particular physical and social conditions within NWE.

Water footprinting of electricity generated by combined cycle gas turbines using different cooling technologies: a practitioner's experience

Efforts undertaken for reducing environmental impacts of energy production have been primarily focused on carbon reduction while the fact that energy production also requires water has been largely overlooked. During the last decade, and despite the fact that global warming still remains today the focus of many environmental evaluations, water scarcity issues have increasingly received attention. Despite the fact that recently, an increasing demand for large industrial companies to calculate and report on their water footprint exists, water resources have only recently been addressed in life cycle assessment (LCA) and their assessment still lacks wide application. The paper presents a practitioner's experience with respect to the application of three recently developed water footprinting methodologies that are considered as current-state-of-the-art.
