Long-Duration Energy Storage Can Lead the Clean Energy Transition

Emerging long-duration energy storage technologies will be a critical factor in the decarbonization of energy generation.

Previewing the U.S. DOE’s Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap

The roadmap provides a framework for technology pathways needed to achieve net-zero GHG emissions in the industrial sector by 2050.

The Importance of Carbon Intensity and Compliance to Meet Decarbonization Goals

Determining a product’s carbon intensity is the first step in understanding the value of that product and taking advantage of the carbon markets and carbon credits available to companies today.

Commercializing Decarbonization Technologies

An important part of moving sustainable technologies to market will be addressing the technoeconomic challenges associated with these technologies during project development. Pilot testing is one key step of de-risking commercialization.


Learning from the Worst Ammonia Accident

The worst industrial accident involving ammonia occurred in Dakar, Senegal, in 1992. This article presents an analysis of the incident and its resulting consequences to help prevent future ammonia incidents.
