      "TOKYO (REUTERS) Nissan Motor Co Ltd, Japan's third largest automaker,
      said this week it plans to sell its first fuel cell car next year, speeding
      up its original plans for a launch in 2005.

      "We are advancing it by two years," Nissan Chief Executive Carlos
      Ghosn told a news conference.

      The announcement is a boost for Nissan's reputation in environmental
      friendly auto technology, which was seen to be lagging far behind rivals
      Toyota Motor Corp and Honda Motor Co." ...more

      "WASHINGTON, DC (ENS) Legislation introduced Monday would implement
      the Bush administration's market based approach to reducing air pollution
      from power plants, known as the Clear Skies plan. But a new national poll
      shows that most voters reject this approach, preferring the mandatory
      emissions cuts and other mechanisms contained in the existing Clean Air
      Act." ...more

      "POLAND (International Atomic Energy Agency) A coal-fired power plant
      in Szczecin is now the site of a four-year IAEA technical co-operation Model
      Project to demonstrate, on an industrial scale, a 'novel' technology.

      Electron beam dry scrubbing (EBDS) works by recycling the flue gases
      through a chamber, before they escape from the chimney, and exposing them to
      low-energy electron radiation from an accelerator. As a result the toxic SO2
      and NOx are transformed to other chemical forms. By adding ammonia to the
      chamber, the resulting by-product, a dry powder, can be used as fertiliser.
      Other cleaning systems do not have this beneficial effect and produce a lot
      of waste. Although it is a radiation process, no radioactivity is produced
      in the operation and there is no residual radiation." ...more

      "UNITED STATES (Wired) The U.S. Navy wants to keep tabs on the
      seas. But it's facing a whale of a problem: The technologies it says it
      needs to spy on enemy subs are so loud that they can ruin the lives of
      nearby leviathans, which rely on their ears like we use our eyes.

      Next Monday, lawyers representing the Navy and the National
      Resources Defense Council (NRDC) will square off in U.S. District Court over
      a program that tests new sub-detection techniques in coastal waters -- the
      most heavily populated part of the oceans." ...more
