This is how Big Oil will die

Posted by Seth Miller in Transport 1 Comment »

7 SistersIt’s 2025, and 800,000 tons of used high strength steel is coming up for auction.
The steel made up the Keystone XL pipeline, finally completed in 2019, two years after the project launched with great fanfare after approval by the Trump administration. The pipeline was built at a cost of about $7 billion, bringing oil from the Canadian tar sands to the US, with a pit stop in the town of Baker, Montana, to pick up US crude from the Bakken formation. At its peak, it carried over 500,000 barrels a day for processing at refineries in Texas and Louisiana.

On electric adventure to Norway

Zoe rainbow Denmark[Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie]
Two years ago it was the first time I went to Switzerland with my 100% electric Renault Zoe. 900km one way was a real challenge because back then there were no fast chargers. It made me happy if there was a semi-fast charger (22kW) on the route. This way I could not drive more than 350km per day. The next year there were some fast chargers and it was possible to make an entire tour of almost 2400km through Switzerland.
This year I set the bar higher, and the outward journey is already 2000km! Now I will mostly use fast chargers, and cover 550km per day. Seven different charge cards or phone Apps have been arranged. Hopefully they all will work, because I wasn’t able to test most of them. Furthermore, I will not use ferries on this trip, but drive entirely over bridges in Denmark and Sweden to Geiranger (Norway), where among other things I will attend the 20th anniversary of the Norwegian electric car association.

Emissions-Free Transport: Containers and the Stevelduct

Posted by Aad van den Ende in Transport 2 Comments »

A Dilemma of Economic Growt: How can economic growth in the area of transportation be managed in a manner consistent with the moderation or reduction in the rate of climate change? After all, it is a given that economic growth will require a greater capacity to transport and an intensification in the use of existing infrastructure. With transportation options currently available, it does not appear to be feasible to make progress on the emissions front merely by making greater use of the infrastructure now in place. Unless real alternatives are developed, this state of affairs will continue far into the future. Apparently an insoluble dilemma. The STEVELDUCT offers a solution: it is an emissions free form of container transportation. Given universal standardization as regards containers, it also lends itself to innovation world wide.
