ANN ARBOR—The added weight, electricity demand and aerodynamic drag of the sensors and computers used in autonomous vehicles are significant contributors to their lifetime energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new study.
However, when savings from the driving efficiencies associated with self-driving vehicles are factored into the equation, the net result is a reduction in lifetime energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions of up to 9 percent compared to the conventional vehicles examined in the University of Michigan-led study.
Vessels with industry-first "green-cruising" design will enter service in 2020 and 2022 with dual-fuel engines utilizing LNG for power in port and at sea, with cleaner air emissions and improved air quality

December 4, 2017 /3BL Media/ - Testifying today at the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) hearing on repealing the glider provisions in the Phase 2 national fuel economy standard for heavy-duty vehicles, Carol Lee Rawn, Transportation Program Director at Ceres, made the following statement:
Our pulp and paper products are derived from renewable resources, made with high levels of renewable energy, and are designed to be reused or recycled. While it is difficult to identify a more sustainable industry than forest products, not all companies perform equally when it comes to operating safely and sustainably.
The recycling needs of the communities we serve are constantly evolving — and we have to evolve with them. Republic is making consistent, strategic investments in our sorting technologies and infrastructure to ensure that our facilities are capable of meeting the sustainability goals of the communities and businesses we serve.
Last year, we invested over $13 million in new recycling capabilities at select recycling centers, even as others in the industry reduced or eliminated their investments.
