LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Transit and ground passenger transport providers are introducing hybrid buses to reduce carbon emissions. Buses are usually powered by diesel, which releases CO2 emissions into the environment. On the contrary, hybrid buses use an alternative fuel and do not require such a heavy investment as electric buses, to build an electric bus it costs around $400,000. A hybrid bus is powered by two alternative fuels or one fuel combined with electricity, diesel-natural gas or diesel-electric. Additionally, these buses provide a quieter experience and lower maintenance costs, shaping the market outlook for mass transit and ground passenger transportation.

The global mass transit and ground passenger transportation market size is expected to grow from $265.48 billion in 2020 to $649.15 billion in 2025 at a rate of 19.6%.

The stretch of road south of the city is known for regular traffic jams and long traffic jams.

Although universal recognition action is needed, consensus on a detailed scheme of improvements has been elusive.

Register to our daily newsletter SussexWorld Today

aerial view of the A27 south of Chichester

Improvements to the A27 at Chichester are one of the measures included in the huge package of transport upgrades listed in the plan.

The SIP highlights the goal of “targeted interventions aimed at providing high quality east-west connections for freight, private and transit vehicles that eliminate conflicts between local and longer term traffic. distance, with the greatest benefit when supported and supported by improvements in public transport”.

But the group’s recommendation for a new, attenuated northern route with a ‘reasonable alternative’ of substantial and sensitive improvements to the current line of the route south of the town was rejected by Highways England.

According to National Highways, formerly Highways England, improvements to the A27 at Chichester are one of 32 pipeline projects being considered for possible inclusion in RIS3.

Its website says: ‘We are currently reviewing and assessing potential options to improve the A27 Chichester Bypass as it continues to suffer from high accident rates, daily traffic jams and long queues at most junctions along this 5 km stretch of road. With a 24% increase in traffic by 2035, this situation will systematically worsen if there is no intervention.

A March update outlines how a non-statutory public consultation should be held early to present a shortlist of options.

Chichester District Council is in the process of reviewing its local plan and one of the arguments for lowering its housing targets is the lack of certainty over improvements to the A27 and the provision of capacity extra needed to accommodate additional residents.

In an email update earlier this month, the council said: ‘Due to the significant road improvements required and the fact that there is insufficient funding to achieve this, we have explained that it is unlikely that the plan achieves all the housing targets set by the government.

“Instead, we are working closely with National Highways and West Sussex County Council to set out a revised development strategy based on any improvements that can be made to the A27 over the plan period.”

Is transporting LNG by rail safe? https://ege-rus.com/is-transporting-lng-by-rail-safe/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 12:12:29 +0000 https://ege-rus.com/is-transporting-lng-by-rail-safe/ The debate over whether the US federal government should allow liquefied natural gas to be transported by rail could come to a head this summer, with the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) poised to make some big decisions .

The debate over whether the US federal government should allow liquefied natural gas to be transported by rail could come to a head this summer, with the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) poised to make some big decisions .

By June 30, PHMSA and the Federal Railroad Administration are expected to issue their decision on temporarily suspending a 2020 rule allowing LNG to be transported by rail via dedicated tank cars while they review the impact on safety, the environment and on Aboriginal people. American tribes. This 2020 rule was signed into law under former President Donald Trump.

But there are other outstanding issues before federal regulators regarding LNG by rail. PHMSA is also considering final regulations to amend the regulations governing LNG by rail to incorporate ongoing research efforts. This decision is expected for June 30, 2024.

For its part, Energy Transport Solutions (ETS) is seeking to renew a permit authorizing it to ship LNG by rail. Trump had granted ETS the permit in 2020 so the company could export LNG through a terminal in New Jersey. PHMSA’s decision on this license renewal is pending.

To add more complexity to the issue, six environmental groups and 14 states plus the District of Columbia and a Native American tribe have filed a lawsuit against the US Department of Transportation over the 2020 rule.

Environmental groups call for a ban on LNG by rail

PHMSA noted that while companies could still transport refrigerated liquid methane, also known as LNG, by rail via dedicated tank cars, such transport has not occurred. However, current federal regulations allow LNG by rail using UN portable tanks with prior approval from the Federal Railroad Administration. The Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) and the Alaska Railroad have both been authorized to do so, but only the FECR is actively transporting LNG in mobile UN tanks.

UN tanks are smaller intermodal packages that hold about 10,000 gallons of product, while tank cars hold about 30,000 gallons, PHMSA told FreightWaves.

In fact, environmental groups want a total ban on LNG by rail. Last month, the groups called on US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to ban the transportation of LNG by rail, citing climate and health threats.

Environmental groups launched the campaign, Ban LNG by Rail, with a video, social media campaign and petition. They argue that LNG is a highly unstable and explosive liquid which, if released in a spill, could lead to the formation of rapidly expanding vapor clouds that could instantly freeze human flesh.

“We believe it is far too dangerous to move this flammable, dangerous and potentially explosive cargo by rail through communities. These freight rail lines pass right by — in some cases within yards — of people’s homes and target our most vulnerable communities and cities,” said Tracy Carluccio, deputy director of the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, in a recent interview with FreightWaves. .

Environmental groups are also against hydraulic fracturing, which is the process used to capture methane from the Earth. They argue that the release of natural gas, its liquefaction and transportation, and then its regasification release significant amounts of emissions.

“Allowing LNG to be transported by rail would trigger more fracking, pose a catastrophic risk to countless communities and delay the critical transition to clean energy,” said Thomas Meyer, national lead for the organization at Food & Water Watch, in a press release published at the end of May. “The Trump administration’s outrageous LNG rail rule must be reversed. If Secretary Buttigieg is serious about prioritizing climate action and fulfilling his department’s mission to ensure a safe and fair transportation system, he must take action to ban LNG by rail once and for all.

Carluccio also said the United States should not be swayed by European demand for LNG imports amid the Ukraine-Russia dispute. Europe has historically relied on Russia to supply the continent with LNG, although it is seeking to wean itself off LNG and boost its energy consumption from renewable sources.

“We are concerned that this commitment by the Biden administration will be eroded by this immediate crisis in Ukraine and the demand for gas from Europe,” Carluccio told FreightWaves, explaining that the White House has reached an agreement with the Union. European Union to increase LNG exports by 15 billion cubic meters per year.

This agreement could encourage domestic LNG production, she said.

Indeed, US LNG exports to Europe increased in the first four months of 2022, according to a June 7 memo from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). During this period, the United States exported 74% of its LNG to Europe, compared to an annual average of 34% last year. Asia was the top destination for US LNG exports in 2020 and 2021.

U.S. LNG exports averaged 11.5 billion cubic feet per day in the first four months of 2022, up 18% from the same period in 2021, according to the EIA.

Freight Rail Association Says LNG Rail Transport Is Safe

Meanwhile, the Association of American Railroads maintains that the transportation of dangerous goods by rail is significantly safer than the transportation of dangerous goods by road, with more than 99.99% of rail shipments of dangerous goods reaching their destination without release caused by a train wreck, according to the AAR website.

The 2020 rule takes into account studies conducted on LNG by rail, and the rule outlines strict measures, the AAR said. These measures include specialized tank cars known as DOT-113, which have thicker outer shells; a joint initiative between the Class I railways and the government that analyzes the safest and most secure routes for transporting LNG; and equipping trains carrying hazardous materials with specialized equipment to further minimize potential damage to rail cars.

PHMSA told FreightWaves that the agency is currently reviewing more than 9,000 comments submitted to the November 2021 rulemaking proposal on whether to temporarily suspend the rule. The agency said that while PHMSA’s 2020 rule remains in effect, no transportation of LNG has taken place under the regulations, and the agency is not aware of any applications for the construction of tank wagons to be used within the existing authorization.

PHMSA also said it does not comment on ongoing litigation, including the DC Circuit Court lawsuit of 14 states and environmental groups.

U.S. housing starts may have fallen to a more than a year low in May, but a historic pipeline of homes under construction should ease an inventory crisis as those projects come to fruition.

The number of homes under construction rose to 1.67 million units last month, the highest in government data dating back to 1969. In addition, housing completions rose more than 9% from the previous month for reach the highest level since 2007.

For most of the past two years, builders have been caught between strong buyer demand on the one hand – spurred by ultra-low mortgage rates – and unprecedented supply constraints on the other. These pressures that have limited inventories are showing signs of easing as a recent spike in borrowing costs slows sales, allowing companies to advance on bloated backlogs.

As completions continue to lag the number of units under construction, the upside is a silver lining after an otherwise disappointing housing starts print.

And yet, rising mortgage rates and slowing housing demand cast a shadow over homebuilding inventories, which fell for a fifth straight day and are poised for their worst start to the year on record. .

The S&P Supercomposite Homebuilders Index fell 7.5% on its worst day since June 2020 as investor woes deepened, with mortgage rates rising the most since 1987 and housing starts falling more than expected on last month. Tri Pointe Homes Inc., Century Communities Inc. and Taylor Morrison Home Corp. were among the largest declines, dropping more than 10% each.

“Builders may be pressing the brakes given slowing buyer traffic and the idea that prices need to correct in the hottest markets,” said Anthony Pettinari, an analyst at Citigroup Inc. As the Federal Reserve continues more hawkish measures after the 75 basis point hike on June 15, rebates and outright reductions in house prices could become more common, he added in a report published on June 16.

Dr. WOODRUFF- I’m not entirely sure if you’ve answered this question yet, so please let me know if you have. This is the Tasman Bridge replacement investment. Have you been asked questions about this?

Mr FERGUSON – I do not have.

Dr. WOODRUFF- I note the substantial commitment to the replacement process, but I understand that this pool of funds was provided by the federal Liberal government, so I wonder if you have had conversations with the new Minister of Labor to ensure that this pool of funding will always be available.

Mr FERGUSON – I reached out to the new Federal Infrastructure Minister, Catherine King, and conveyed my congratulations and that I look forward to working with her. I have no concerns about this funding. Both governments have been very clear in their commitment to this project, and I have no reason to think that the federal Labor government would do anything but honor this project. I don’t know if we can discuss the level of agreement we reached with them for a PPR. Has the PPR been signed?

Mrs. McINTYRE – Not yet, but funding was committed prior to this current budget.

Mr FERGUSON – It was. I believe we put the full amount of $130 million in last year’s budget, so I have no concerns about the funding profile going forward. This is a very important project for me, for our government and for the state.

Just to pick up on your use of the word “replacement”, we will not replace, but we will strengthen the bridge. This is the first priority of this project. You might like to ask about how it’s going, but the first priority is to reinforce it. We can’t add the extra lanes and sheer weight and strain on the bridge without first doing a reinforcement project. To allow the bridge to bear the additional weight of the three meter lanes on each side plus the protective wall which will prevent any accidents from occurring, we must first carry out the reinforcement works, which has the secondary effect of extending the lifetime of the bridge I’m thinking 2070 if I’m not mistaken. If there are any other questions, I’m happy to have them.

Dr. WOODRUFF- This brings me to my next question. There is a view in the community that I have been told that the bridge is past its expiration date, so it would be nice if you could make a clear statement about that. I want to emphasize that this is a point of view that I represent and that people have expressed to me concerns about the bridge. Obviously, people with a history of what happened to the bridge are concerned to understand that the government has a replacement plan. Can you please explain to us exactly what the lifespan of the bridge is, what is the replacement plan, possible future cost, how could this happen and what are we doing to follow this path ?

Mr FERGUSON – It’s a good question. I can reassure you and your constituents on the advice we received from our consultants, GHD, who carried out this work of assessing the strength and lifespan of the bridge as it currently stands. The advice we have received is that, subject to the completion of this project which will take several years, the bridge is fit for service and its life can be extended. I was only working on my memory when I said the project would extend the life of the bridge to 2070. I’m going to triple check that with my folks around the table and if we have to bring that back we can TO DO . But there are no plans to replace the bridge because we don’t need it. The bridge is fit for purpose. And with its reinforcement project, which will allow us to build on these three meter wide lanes on each side, the bridge is suitable for a long time into the future. Denise, could you add something and advise if we need to check the date please?

Mrs. McINTYRE – In terms of determining bridge life, there are a number of factors that determine whether a bridge is fit for purpose. One can be capacity in terms of the weight she can carry. You can undertake reinforcement work to extend the life in terms of carrying capacity, depending on the traffic for which the reinforcement is designed.

Capacity is also related to the number of vehicles it can carry. Obviously there is a lot of work being done on the congestion around Hobart and on extending and expanding passenger transport or high volume movement of people as alternatives to people getting into their cars. The trails are intended to provide an active transportation alternative to cross the river as well.

Our consultants have no concerns and we have no concerns that we need to plan for the replacement of the Tasman Bridge in the near future.

Dr. WOODRUFF- Has GHD given a date? And when was their report made?

Basically what you are telling Tasmanians is that the bridge has been certified, once the reinforcement work has been completed, as structurally integral for a lifespan of up to 2070. Is that what you’re saying?

Mr FERGUSON – That is what I am saying. Also, since Ms. McIntyre was unable to confirm this to me at the table, we will double check the date as I know it was in the report.

Mrs. McINTYRE – Giving an actual date is kind of like, we can’t really certify it, it depends a lot on –

Dr. WOODRUFF- I accept what you just said. I understand.

Mrs. McINTYRE – But it still has a long lifespan. It is halfway through its lifespan. We will undertake work as required to ensure it is fit for the future.

Dr. WOODRUFF- And these reinforcement works, when will they be finished?

Mr FERGUSON – It will be 2025-26. And the aisles. The whole project.

But I would like to make sure that I give the correct information to the committee, by working on my memory. I will come back to the committee if there is any clarification needed as to its expected economic life after reinforcement.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has partnered with Aemetis, Inc. to officially commission the interconnection of a new renewable natural gas (RNG) facility in Keyes, California. The partnership between PG&E and Aemetis will enable the transportation of clean RNG to California transportation customers and capture more than 1.6 million Btu/yr of dairy methane that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere.

“We are proud to partner with Aemetis and California Dairies to provide clean renewable natural gas to Californians. This project is a key step in our goal to expand our renewable energy mix within our gas supply and evolve our system into a safe, affordable and reliable net-zero energy delivery platform. said Janisse, PG&E Senior Vice President, Gas Engineering. Quinones.

When fully constructed, a 40-mile collection line will receive RNG produced from the Aemetis Biogas Central Dairy Digester project and transport it through PG&E’s transmission pipeline system to end customers. Currently, the RNG transported from this project will directly support the transport sector. The project estimates that the emissions captured by more than 60 contributing dairies are equal to those of 1.1 million cars.

“The commissioning of the biogas cleaning unit and its interconnection with the PG&E pipeline is an important milestone for Aemetis,” said Eric McAfee, President and CEO of Aemetis.

The national government should consider reviving the Petroleum Price Stabilization Fund (OPSF) amid the string of oil price hikes over the past few months and the uncertainty of oil price stability due to the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, a transport group said on Saturday. June 11.

Since January this year, the price of gasoline has increased by 23.85 pesos per liter, 30.30 pesos per liter for diesel and 27.65 pesos per liter for kerosene.

Lawyer Vigor Mendoza II, chairman of transport group 1-UTAK, said the revival of OPSF will help the public cope with rising oil prices, especially that there was already a shortage of public utility vehicles, especially in Metro Manila, as some drivers and operators have decided. to stop the operation during the series of oil price increases.

Some farmers and fishermen are also reported to have resorted to alternative livelihoods as they could not afford the price of petroleum products they use in farming and fishing.

Mendoza said that the adverse effects of rising oil prices require the formulation and implementation of measures that will mitigate the effect of oil price instability, one of them is the revival of the ‘OPSF that President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos himself supported during the campaign period.

Mendoza said he agreed with Marcos when the latter appeared before a town hall in Marikina with transport groups and other groups during the campaign period.

“I support the position of new President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr, to once again come up with something like an oil price stabilization fund with maybe a little improvement,” Mendoza said.

“The program will ensure that there is a fund that can be used not only to subsidize fuel for drivers, but also to modernize the transport sector and to support transition measures to alternative fuels,” he added. .

Proposal

The national government used to set aside funds to cushion the impact of any rise in oil prices that would already trigger instability in the prices of goods and services. This was done through a government subsidy on fuel price adjustments.

But the program was already halted in the mid-1990s following the enactment of the Petroleum Deregulation Act and due to some issues, including reports that the government then owed billions of pesos to oil companies.

This is where adjustments need to be made in order to ensure that the OPSF-like program would succeed, according to Mendoza.

As part of the revival of the OPSF-like revival, Mendoza explained that in times of lower fuel prices, part of the funds saved due to lower oil prices should be set aside to subsidize prices. fuel for the public transport sector.

And when prices go up, he said oil companies should set aside some of the increase in that fund as a deductible expense, not as part of gross sales.

Mendoza pointed out that this program is one of the long-term approaches that the government can consider instead of implementing one-off aid solutions like providing fuel subsidies.

He further stated that the provision of fuel subsidies depended on budget allocation.

Mendoza also compares the program to two-tier fuel pricing where the transport sector received special discounts ” “The key here is good management of funds and must be protected against wrongdoing. “

In addition, the fund should come from the oil companies through a deductible expense to accelerate the growth of the fund,” he stressed.

Fuel storage facilities

Mendoza also proposed the establishment of strategically located fuel storage facilities or a more cost-effective fuel delivery system, such as a pipeline.

“This is aimed at reducing the cost of delivery, which is one of the key factors driving up prices.” If our fuel storage facilities are closer to demand, the cost of delivery will be much cheaper,” Mendoza said.

He also expressed support for the concept of Metro Manila Transport Corporation implemented under the Marcos administration and revived during the tenure of former Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) Chairman Tom Lantion, where the government purchased public utility vehicles and leased them through qualified transportation groups. .

“I think it is a very new concept that will stimulate modernization and at the same time reduce the cost of operations through savings on interest charges if transport groups could benefit from loans to buy new vehicles,” Mendoza said.

A major Japanese shipbuilder is gearing up for a new type of sea freight: trapped CO₂.


Carbon dioxide capture and storage has an important role to play in achieving net zero goals. But this can be difficult if the source of greenhouse gases, such as a power plant, is not near a CO₂ storage facility. This is where ships come in.


Japanese company Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., part of the MHI Group, is working on a prototype designed to transport large amounts of CO₂ over long distances. The company expects such vessels to be needed and used on a large scale in the coming years as the market for carbon capture, storage and utilization grows. While liquid CO₂ transport vessels have already been used by the food industry, the company expects its vessel to be the first to specifically serve the burgeoning CO₂ capture, utilization and storage sector. carbon (CCUS).


The idea is to capture the CO2, liquefy it and then transport it to storage units on board ships.


Carriers will become increasingly necessary as it will be impossible to completely eliminate carbon dioxide emissions, according to Takeshi Maetoko, senior deputy director, planning and administration department, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding. “Even if renewable energy and hydrogen and ammonia, which do not emit CO₂, become widespread in the future, fossil fuel and CO₂ emissions cannot be reduced to zero, and we believe that ‘a CCUS value chain will also exist,’ he said in a statement. statement sent by email.


Due for delivery by the end of March next year, the demonstration vessel will be 72 meters (236 feet) long with a tank capacity of 1,450 cubic meters.


The shipbuilder is not the only one with plans to tap into the CCUS market, and the idea is attracting growing interest from greenhouse gas polluters on land and at sea. Northern Lights JV DA, a partnership held by Shell plc, TotalEnergies SE and Equinor ASA to transport and permanently store CO₂ under the North Sea, has ordered two carriers to transport liquefied carbon dioxide. The ships will be built by Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co. and will be ready for delivery by mid-2024. Elsewhere, industrial gas supplier Air Liquide SA and shipping company Sogestran SA, both based in France, are teaming up to transport liquid CO₂ using ships and barges.


The International Energy Agency’s net-zero emissions roadmap by mid-century projects that 1.6 gigatonnes of CO₂ will be captured each year by 2030. This will increase to 7.6 gigatonnes in 2050. , of which approximately 95% must be kept in permanent geological storage.


Pipelines can also be used to transfer CO₂ from emitters to storage facilities. Still, it will be cheaper to transport greenhouse gases by ship than by pipeline when distances exceed 300 kilometres, according to Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, which referred to a presentation by the Innovative Technology Research Institute for Earth.


In addition to transporting liquid CO₂ from land-based polluters, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding is also involved in developing a system to remove carbon dioxide from ship exhaust, which is then liquefied and stored on board.


The shipping industry is a major producer of CO₂, releasing more into the atmosphere than Germany and the Netherlands combined.

An offer of FOURTEEN million will be made to the government, to secure more upgrade money, after the Isle of Wight’s £5.8million success.

Announced in cabinet papers today (Thursday), Isle of Wight Council will make a bid for funds to complete the ‘Island Green Link’ – a sustainable east to west transport network in Wight .

It will include three main parts:

  • Ryde to Yarmouth Transit Corridor;
  • West Wight Greenway;
  • Scheme Newport Hub and Spokes.

Work on the Ryde-Yarmouth Corridor would include improving bus infrastructure, with things like ramps, shelters and real-time information signs.

Small-scale mobility hubs along the route would allow passengers to easily switch modes of transport.

As part of the corridor offer, it will also review proposals to add an improved footbridge or lift system over the railway line at Ryde to increase accessibility for Hovertravel customers.

The West Wight Greenway project has been in the works for a few years now and would create a multi-purpose off-road track between Freshwater and Newport, using part of the old railway line.

The Newport Hub and Spokes scheme is proposed to extend and improve cycle routes, while creating new ones, notably along Taylor Road, Carisbrooke.

The council says that through these programs it would provide greater connectivity to the island’s gateway and underscore the island’s credentials as an environmentally sustainable destination.

It is part of Leveling Up’s second round of funding, which is central to the government’s plans to build back better after the Covid pandemic.

Isle of Wight Council, with backing from Isle of Wight MP Bob Seely, has been awarded £5.8m for the East Cowes Marina Hub project which is currently underway.

As the island had already been successful, the authority can only bid on transport-related topics, but up to £14million is available.

The offer, which seeks cabinet approval next Thursday, June 17, must be submitted to the government by July 6.
