The energy consumption of people on the Earth grows and the fossil fuel reserves diminish. Moreover,
the fossil fuels utilization causes various environmental issues: enhanced greenhouse effect of the atmosphere, acid rains, or photochemical smog.
It is therefore necessary to increase the share of the "green" technologies
on the power generation.
We already mentioned that pyrolysis of organic waste by combustion gases
can be used to produce energy (subsection 4.1).
Moreover, the pyrolitic gases also contain hydrogen - the fuel of the future.
It can be combusted, or even better, it can be used in fuel cells to produce electricity. However, we still need to optimize its capture from the pyrolysis gases and to solve the problem of its safe storage.
Finally, we are also developing novel, more efficient types of wind turbines to generate electrical energy from the wind.
