Gas matters

https://www.choicesmagazine.org/choices ... n-industry

Secretary of State Pompeo says the U.S. will remove a sanctions exemption for Russia's Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline to Germany, paving the way for new penalties to be imposed on the project. The new measure allows the U.S. to deploy a wider range of punishments against the pipeline, as the Trump administration tries to thwart the project and lead developer Gazprom ........earlier this month, Denmark regulators approved a petition that gave Nord Stream 2 a technical workaround to the sanctions,

I'm not entirely sure they have the amount or the currency correct, but if they do you have to admire the chutzpah of the Poles on this,

"Poland's antitrust agency slaps a $7.6B fine on Gazprom (OTCPK:OGZPY) for building the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany, saying the project hurts Polish consumers and increases Europe’s dependence on Russian imports."

Identification of room-temperature titanium/copper catalyst to convert the methane in natural gas, to methanol. Usually requires high-temp process. Could be significant. Could be.

One can run engines on methanol. Too late for cars, but marine....

Been a crock of gold for some time, 2019 paper on a more complex process using gallium, here https://www.cell.com/chem/fulltext/S2451-9294(19)30029-4

International Maritime Organisation paper from 2016 on running marine engines on methanol https://glomeep.imo.org/wp-content/uplo ... eb_web.pdf See 4.4.1 for emissions.

All good stuff, albeit mostly above my pay grade.
