    Context

    Panama is working on the transformation from a traditional scheme of public transportation to a more integrated system, which will offer citizens access to quality and accessible transport services. The recent arrival of natural gas in Panama brings the opportunity to use this fuel in transportation, whilst the advances within the electric mobility field offer a very attractive and more environmentally friendly alternative.

  • Liquefied Natural Gas in trucks and cars

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    The use of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in transport is a suitable option to power large long-distance trucks in areas where gas is transported as liquefied natural gas because there are indigenous gas supplies and no gas network. The use of LNG in passenger cars is far less viable because on average passenger cars stand idle more often, which would give rise to high evaporative losses.

  • Global Environment Centre Foundation

    Network Member
    Knowledge Partner

    The Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) is an entity that supports the UNEP’s International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC), based in Japan. GEC is dedicated to the transfer of environmentally sound technologies, in both developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The foundation aims to contribute to Japan’s international efforts on the environment, sharing project collaborations as well as promoting Japan’s rich conservation knowledge and experience in developing nations.

  • High Surface Area Carbon and Process for its production

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Background: Dried crushed corncobs are converted to activated carbon in a multi-step process. Preferred carbons have BET-estimated surface areas in excess of 3000 m2/g. Some of the carbon embodiments adsorb >20% of their weight in methane (ambient T 500 psig) or >6% of their weight in hydrogen (77 K 500 psig). These high performance abilities are attributed to the novel mesopore and nanopore characteristics.

  • Nanowire-Nanoparticle Conjugate Photolytic Fuel Generators

    Type: 
    Product

    Background: The efficiency of a fuel cell depends very much on the surface area of catalyst exposed. Present cells use expensive metal catalysts plated onto membranes. The hydrogen-oxygen reaction in the cell is limited to the surface and scales only according to the two-dimensional geometry of the membranes. If the catalyst is poisoned there is no means for reactants to enter the metal layer rendering large amounts of expensive material effectively and permanently useless.

  • Purification of Gas with Liquid Ionic Compounds

    Type: 
    Product

    Researchers at Notre Dame pioneered the use of ionic liquids for use in gas separation. And this work continues today with an eye towards applications in natural gas purification effluent treatment pre-combustion separations supported liquid membranes and gas drying.

  • Method for the Electrochemical or Chemical Capture and Release of Carbon Dioxide

    Type: 
    Product

    Background: Power plants automobiles and many other sources expel billions of tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere each year. A major greenhouse gas is carbon dioxide. As the world’s population increases the amount of fossil fuel used to create energy increases as the amount of fuel burned increases the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increases. A process to efficiently capture and later release carbon dioxide would have a large positive impact on the environment and have immediate application.

  • Pre-Feasibility Study of the Potential Market for Natural Gas as a Fuel for Power Generation in the Caribbean

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    This study analyses the feasibility of introducing natural gas in 14 countries in the Caribbean. The current dependence on fuel oil in the countries in the Caribbean has led to high generation costs and electricity prices. Introducing natural gas would decrease both the cost and price of electricity, mainly due to the lower price of natural gas. Additionally, natural gas plants emit less carbon dioxide (CO2) per ton than fuel oil plants. Therefore, the net benefits of natural gas would be seen in lower financial and economic (environmental) costs.
