The article features the top ten new technologies that will meet the upcoming regulatory challenges and greenhouse gas control in the U.S. It notes the cleaner-burning gasoline that will not generates a lot of carbon dioxide when burned, hydrogeologic simulation to control water pollution, and energy from biosolids. It also cites the fusion science, retrofit fine-mesh screens, and carbon dioxide preprocessing as well as algae as biofuels and nanowires technology that reduces emission.
