Tony Robbins Bet $200 Million on a Green-Energy Breakthrough. Proof It Works Remains Elusive.

"What differentiates Omnis’s method from others, Hodson said, is that it plans to heat coal to temperatures as high as 5,500 degrees Fahrenheit—about half the temperature at the sun’s surface and twice what is required to make steel. The superhigh heat, he said, will convert coal into higher-quality carbon products, such as graphite."

In a first, a solar microgrid will directly power an industrial plant

"The project is perhaps the first to directly power a large industrial facility using solar-plus-storage technology. Developers say they hope the setup can serve as a model for future manufacturing plants — especially as the United States ramps up domestic production of electric cars, solar panels, batteries, and the steel, aluminum, and other essential materials used to make them."

The US is about to get its first solar-covered canal

Eric Wesoff of Canary Media reports on a solar-covered canal in the U.S. “Erecting solar on top of federally owned canals could be a win-win. The approach limits the disruption to ecosystems, and some studies suggest it actually has the potential to help canals do their jobs better; an over-the-canal design can prevent water from evaporating...

World-first Trial of New Technology to Recycle CO2 Emissions from Steel Production Begins at ArcelorMittal Gent, Belgium

"D-CRBN, an Antwerp-based company, has developed a technology that uses plasma to convert carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide. Using renewable electricity, the plasma is used to break the carbon-oxygen bond, thereby converting CO2 into carbon monoxide. The carbon monoxide can be used as a reductant in the steelmaking process - replacing part of the coke or metallurgical coal used in the blast furnace - or as a basic ingredient in Gent's Steelanol plant, for chemicals or alternative fuel production."
