Carbon recycling pioneer, LanzaTech, continues to make strides in scaling up its alcohol to jet (ATJ)

Carbon recycling pioneer, LanzaTech, continues to make strides in scaling up its alcohol to jet (ATJ) platform. Commercialization of the ATJ process has been years in the making, starting with the partnership between LanzaTech and the U.S Energy Department’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. PNNL developed a unique catalytic process to upgrade ethanol to alcohol-to-jet synthetic paraffinic kerosene (ATJ-SPK) which LanzaTech took from the laboratory to pilot scale. After scale up, ethanol being added as an approved feedstock in ASTM D7566 Annex A5, the Standard Specification for Aviation Turbine Fuel Containing Synthesized Hydrocarbons for alcohol-to-jet synthetic paraffinic kerosene (ATJ-SPK), and the first commercial flight with Virgin Atlantic, sustainable aviation fuel made from captured pollution is ready for full scale demonstration and commercialization. Michael Berube, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Transportation at the U.S. Department of Energy, announced the DOE is in the negotiation stage with LanzaTech for a $14 million investment in a demonstration-scale integrated biorefinery at LanzaTech’s Freedom Pines site in Soperton, Georgia. The announcement was made at...

The secret to UNSHRINKING clothes after a laundry mishap revealed

Almost everyone has experienced that moment of discovering an item of clothing had found its way into the wrong washing load, and emerged a quarter of its original size. But before tossing it in the bin or donating it to charity (or your daughter’s doll’s wardrobe), there could be a DIY trick to restoring the clothing – and the secret it baby shampoo. Homemaking bloggers have shared a simple method they say will ‘unshrink’ your clothes, using the baby shampoo, a bucket and some lukewarm water. Baby shampoo: To resize shrunken clothes try put a third of a cup or a lid full of baby shampoo or conditioner in a bucket of lukewarm water  Then add a lid full or 1/3 of a cup of baby shampoo or condition to the warm water and let the clothing soak in the soapy water for half an hour. After half an hour, remove the piece of clothing, wring out excess water, and lay it flat on a dry towel.  Dryer disaster: Others have successfully tried the DIY hack to bring back those essential extra inches back into their clothes, however the resizing solution will not work for woollen garments  One person wrote: ‘This worked for me! I didn’t have baby shampoo ...

Changes in ocean ‘conveyor belt’ foretold abrupt climate changes by four centuries

In the Atlantic Ocean, a giant ‘conveyor belt’ carries warm waters from the tropics into the North Atlantic, where they cool and sink and then return southwards in the deep ocean. This circulation pattern is an important player in the global climate, regulating weather patterns in the Arctic, Europe, and around the world. Evidence increasingly suggests that this system is slowing down, and some scientists fear it could have major effects, such as causing temperatures to dive in Europe and warming the waters off the East coast of the United States, potentially harming fisheries and exacerbating hurricanes. (For an over-exaggeration of the potential effects, see the 2004 movie The Day After Tomorrow.) googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1449240174198-2′); }); A new study published in Nature Communications provides insight into how quickly these changes could take effect if the system continues weakening. Led by scientists at Columbia’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in collaboration with the Norwegian Research Centre, the study is the first to precisely determine the time lags between past changes to the ocean conveyor belt...

Clinton Ann Bowers tells Beverly Kehe-Rowland about the country store that has been in her husband’s

Clinton Ann Bowers tells Beverly Kehe-Rowland about the country store that has been in her husband’s family since 1929. Photo by Fred Rowland About two weeks before my husband and I left for a trip to Williamsburg, Va., I made the request to travel the back roads on the return trip. We have driven thousands of miles during our journeys and have found the most interesting places off the beaten path. This day was no different. Not only did we find beautiful views, we found honest, hardworking, community-minded people. We chose a winding road through the George Washington National Forest, high in the Shenandoah Mountains that led us into West Virginia. It had been a dirt road until the Virginia end was paved 15 years ago and the West Virginia section, just three years ago. Instead of taking the right turn to Brandywine at the end of Reddish Knob Road, my husband decided to turn left so we could drive through Sugar Grove, W.Va. In seconds we were on the other side of the tiny village with a population of 755. The few houses, barns and church were well kept, some with fresh coats of paint. The small VFW building caused me to chuckle because it was not much larger than a one-car garag...

Bawdy 1841 booklet detailing London’s seedy brothels and sex workers sells for £4,000 at auction 

A lewd catalog of Victorian London’s secret brothels that details the capital’s once booming sex trade has sold at auction for over £4,000. The rare first edition of Swell’s Night Guide Through the Metropolis lists the clubs, pubs, bars and theatres where ladies of the night could be found. And the erotic 1841 illustrated guide to the city’s prostitute hotspots does not mince its words and even scores sex workers on their looks, with grades ranging from ‘a perfect English beauty’ to a rather less flattering ‘fair, fat and 50′. But although some of the descriptions are quite comical, the book also sheds light on the pleasure industry’s dark past and the brutal authority inflicted upon the prostitutes by their bosses.  The guide is now in the hands of a private collector, who snapped up the book for considerably more than its £1,200 estimated value, but sensational photographs of the book lay bare the big smoke’s seedy past. The extremely rare first edition of ‘Swell’s Night Guide Through the Metropolis’ lists the clubs, pubs, bars and theatres where ladies of the night could be found  The erotic 1841 i...
