In this “101” post, RMP writes about the five basic types of fuel cells. Many people may not have heard of fuel cells but they’re here today and will be a bigger part of society more and more. Fuel cells generate electricity with only trace amounts of NOx pollution, SOx pollution, and particulate matter emissions. Furthermore, fuel cells produce less CO2 than than other power plants and have higher efficiencies. Even when CO2 is produced, fuel cells can make it more economical to capture that CO2. There are so many benefits that it’s hard to name them all in this excerpt. Click here to read this post and bring yourself up to speed on the basics of fuel cells.

Click on the button below to show all Michigan oil & gas wells that have caused ground water contamination according to the Michigan DNR's 1993 SAP list. Note that some ground water contamination locations have been fully remediated and some are in active remediation. Currently there are 206 confirmed cases where ground water was contaminated as a result of an oil or gas well. We know of more wells and expect this number to rise as our research continues but we only list wells where we can get confirmation from MDEQ documentation.

Click on the button below to show our demo map of spill locations. Through boots on the ground research, we are collecting data and documentation on spill locations and putting the resultant reports on the location homepages. Click any of the markers on the demo map and check out the report on the location's homepage. We detail information about the ground water contamination at each of the locations and support the report with documents from various MDEQ field offices throughout the state.
