Gamesa has made progress on its offshore strategy by developing the Gamesa 5.0 MW offshore platform. Based on the proven technology validated in recent years in Gamesa’s 4.5 MW platform and the operating know-how and experience built up, the 5.0 MW offshore platform combines high reliability and optimal cost of energy. In addition to its 5 MW offshore system, Gamesa plans to develop higher-capacity offshore turbines (7 MW-8 MW) in the medium to long term. The G128-5.0 MW Offshore prototype has been equipped with a 128-meter rotor diameter and a modular and redundant design that will ensure reliability and maximizing energy production.
This video describes a solution to the severe health risks caused by mercury emissions from small-scale gold processing. Small scale gold buying and refining facilities, or gold shops, located in more than 55 countries throughout the world, are an important part of the artisanal and small-scale gold production process and are a major cause of air pollution from mercury. EPA and Argonne National Laboratory worked together to design a low-cost mercury capture system that is simple to build and install, using locally available materials. The system reduces mercury emissions by at least 80 percent. For more information about the Mercury Capture System, go to www.epa.gov/international/toxics.
Manila is just one of the world's largest cities that are situated on the water's edge. For these cities the oceans provide jobs, food and opportunities for transportation and recreation. But as pollutants move downhill, they are ending up on the shores and in the seas. Scientists from the Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (PNRI) monitor and manage the pollution in Manila Bay.
