Mining our way to energy transition

«Primary material extraction» steg fra 22 milliarder tonn i 1970 til 70 milliarder i 2010 og det forventes 180 milliarder tonn i 2050. Kilde: UNEP 2016 OECD anslår at materialbruken vil øke fra 79 Gt i 2011 til 167 Gt i 2060, mens per capita forbruk øker fra 33kg til 45kg. I 2017 så fordelingen … Les mer

Syntetisk drivstoff

A plant will use 20 megawatts to produce 8000 tons of transportation fuel per year, This method will avoid producing 28,600 tons of CO2 annually from fossil fuels. 20 MW 24/365 is equivelant to 175 GWh/year. That could power electric cars for 1000 million kilometers or produce enough diesel to power fossile fuel cars 167 … Les mer

Green hydrogen

What do we need? According to the International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena), the world will need 19 exajoules of green hydrogen in the energy system in 2050 — between 133.8 million and 158.3 million tonnes a year. Recharge calculations show that producing such a volume would require at least 6,690TWh of dedicated electricity every year … Les mer
