Cold Ironing

June 16, 2007

Either my brain is taking a break or this article is confusing. Well perhaps it can be both at the same time. Regardless… It seems the shipping industry is considering going green and the Port of Oakland is experimenting with technology which allows ship to switch to electric power while docked.   Connecting to shore-based electricity to power the onboard systems while the ship is docked could eliminate as much as 1,000 pounds of exhaust pollutants during a single containership port call. Now this is one green technology we can all get behind.   This technique of connecting to power lines from shore is called cold ironing and a company called APL has developed a technology allowing cold ironing to take place for $225,000 per vessel as opposed to original industry estimates of 1.5 million.

Computers Need to go Green

June 14, 2007

Articles like this one really show how the typical PC has a way to go before it becomes green. Or at least much greener. Computers generate as much as 35 mullions tons of gas each year and this equates to about 100 million flights! It is unclear from this article if this is PCs in the UK or the world.   It takes around 1.8 tons of chemicals, fossil fuels and water to produce a PC, and its operation generates 0.1 tons of CO2 in a typical year.
