A Safer and More Profitable Sustainable Water Disinfection Technique
Created 5/5/2010 7:52:23 AM 
Chlorine is an extremely dangerous substance to transport and handle, and industries have been scrambling for safer alternatives in the face of stricter regulations. Even the ubiquitous Clorox recently announced that it was phasing out rail transportation of chlorine in favor of trucking in a more manageable bleach product to its factories. Chemical price spikes and shortages are also motivating water treatment professionals to search for alternative water disinfection technologies
What We Miss About Greenhouse Gases
Created 4/26/2010 8:02:12 AM 
 The bulk of the region's greenhouse gases come from the production of stuff, not from cars and transportation. This is interesting because it highlights our lopsided thinking about climate change. The media tends to focus a lot on solutions like hybrid cars and CFLs, but transportation and energy use are relatively small parts of the problem.
A New Green Twist on Car Rentals
Created 4/12/2010 8:59:17 AM 
For many urban dwellers, the idea of owning a car just doesn’t make sense. Public transportation as well as highly marketed car renting services like Zipcar and City CarShare make it easy enough to get around. But if you do own a car, wouldn’t it be nice to make some extra money with your car that usually sits on the street or in a garage for most of the day? Well, one company is betting on just that.

Upcycle your Broken Windshield
Created 12/9/2009 8:08:59 AM 
Windshields take a lot of landfill space. And new glass manufacturing contributes to global warming. New glass requires energy and transportation-intensive mining. Manufacturing new glass uses intense heat in an already warming climate. Recycling windshields saves valuable and declining landfill space, releases zero CO2 and cuts the carbon footprint.
Recycling Empty Truckloads for Profit
Created 10/7/2009 8:16:54 AM 
One in four of the trucks traveling the world's roads is empty – a waste of money and a blot on the environment. In the highly fragmented truckload transportation industry, a huge amount of trips involves empty trucks. However, reducing the amount of truck repositioning is difficult because the need for a carrier to reposition its vehicles depends on the interactions between the shippers the carrier is serving.
Pig Poop Biofuel
Created 4/10/2009 8:09:54 AM 
100 million pigs are slaughtered each year in the USA alone, producing 110 million tons of waste. Much of these ends up in rivers and fed the expansion of a New Jersey-sized dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico. Billions of dollars are spent on waste transportation and treatment, and regulations continue to become more stringent and cost-intensive to satisfy our desire for a clean environment. Meanwhile, we have a growing need for biofuels that would reduce our dependence on foreign oil and the world's finite supply of crude petroleum.

Created 4/6/2009 8:04:02 AM 
Cities around the world try to get cars off the roads and there's been increasing emphasis on public transportation, ride-sharing, telecommuting and bicycling as eco-minded alternatives. For instance, San Francisco now requires that all employers with 20 workers or more offer a transit benefit program to support greener commuting. One new way however, is a luxury eco-bus used to give commuters a high-end ride to work.
Literally Recycled
Created 1/5/2009 7:48:56 AM 
Every year, affluent Americans buy 22 million new bicycles and discard millions of old ones, abandoning many more unused in basements, sheds, and garages. Most of these end up in already overburdened landfills. Meanwhile, poor people overseas need cheap, non-polluting transportation to get to jobs, markets, customers, and schools. Some people will take adult bikes and frames, refurbish or converting them into wheelchairs for people in developing countries
