Comments on Energy and Environment Problems
作者: 周 理 ：天津大学化工学院，天津;
Abstract: The target of energy research is to make energy clean and sustainable. Comments were given on each type of energy sources regarding the present status and future with respect to the target. It is claimed that hydrogen energy is still far away from reality and methane fuel deserves intensive development. The author’s innovative research on the preparation of sustainable hydrogen, enrichment of methane from lean fuels, its storage on wet active carbon as well as a novel technology to transform coal into a green energy source were reported. It is pointed out that energy is not responsible for earth warming, and all strategies and measures taken at present do not function in preventing the trend of warming. That the world population determines global CO2 emission is an ecological rule of nature, and human activities cause the accumulation of carbon element on earth surface. Therefore, the strategy of Forced Carbon Circulation (FCC) proposed by the author is more effective and practical than the so-called CCS (carbon capture and storage) strategy for environment protection.
