Exergy or the entropic drive: waste heat and free heat

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jul. 16, 2013)

The dissipation of exergy is conventionally held to be the inference of the entropy growth. In this conventional perspective, the universe is running down towards equilibrium or heat death. Recent cosmological findings of 1998–2000 give empirical evidence that the universe is instead moving away from equilibrium while its entropy increases. We can ...

Using biogas for combined heat and power

by Clarke Energy  (Nov. 23, 2012)

An integral part of the majority of anaerobic digestion facilities across the world is the CHP combined heat and power (CHP) engine. For the first time builder of a biogas plant, it is often neglected as the focus is on reducing the capital costs ...

Much light, little heat efficiency

by Energy Efficiency Markets  (Jan. 26, 2012)

Energy efficiency in the US is much light and little heat – literally.  Government policy pays a great deal of attention to saving electricity, but focuses little on the thermal energy we waste.  “Policy is electricity-centric in the US. Unless you are making kilowatts, the most efficient investments are off the radar,” ...

Energy conservation in aluminium foundries by waste heat recovery from solidifying molten metal

by Inderscience Publishers  (Mar. 28, 2012)

This paper presents a unique attempt to preheat the raw materials by recovering the waste heat from solidifying molten metal in shape castings of aluminium using sand moulds. Finite element analysis of the problem using ANSYS has also been done, results of which show satisfactory agreement with the experimental results. By using this preheating ...

A study on the thermodynamic analysis of a cascaded latent heat storage system over the single storage tank system for diesel engine waste heat recovery

by Inderscience Publishers  (Nov. 9, 2012)

This article presents the comparison of performance of a cascaded Latent Heat Storage (LHS) system over the Single Storage Tank (SST) system for heat recovery from a diesel engine. The energy and exergy saved and efficiencies during the charging process are evaluated and reported using actual system data. The discharge process is analysed with a ...

Turning waste into power

by Hurll Nu-Way  (Aug. 5, 2013)

Economic, social and environmental factors dictate the necessity to manage waste to a new level. Wastewater plants, landfills, farms and food plants are all the owners of biomass that can be digested to produce biogas and turned into power. Biogas can be burned directly in boilers for heat recovery and used for manufacturing, heating or cooling; ...
