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 ...

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 ...

Combined Heat and Power – Questions and Answers

by ENER-G  (Jan. 3, 2013)

 1. What are the benefits of CHP for business?   combined heat and power (CHP) is a well-proven technology, recognised worldwide as a cleaner alternative to traditional centralised generation. Its long-term future in the global energy markets is secured by CHP's ability to provide a multitude of financial, ...

Enhancement of hydrogen production from Kitchen Waste using heat treated anaerobic biogas plant slurry with pH control

by Inderscience Publishers  (Mar. 10, 2009)

Hydrogen is found to be a clean energy source; biohydrogen has been researched in recent years. Anaerobic Digestion of Kitchen Waste (KW) for hydrogen production was performed in lab scale reactors, using heat-treated anaerobically digested biogas plant slurry. The biogas plant slurry was given heat treatment at varying temperatures ranging from ...

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 novel cogeneration cycle based on a recompression supercritical carbon dioxide cycle for waste heat recovery in nuclear power plants

by Inderscience Publishers  (May 11, 2012)

In this study, a novel cogeneration cycle based on the recompression S–CO2 Brayton cycle is proposed, analysed and optimised thermodynamically to utilise the waste heat from a nuclear power plant. The cycle was constructed theoretically on the basis of a transcritical CO2 power cycle and a LiBr/H ...

Oxidation characteristics of A588 steel and its applicability to high-heat-load nuclear waste package designs

by Inderscience Publishers  (Sep. 30, 2008)

The ASTM A588 steel is proposed as the outer wall material for second-generation nuclear waste package designs (Armijo et al., 2006; Kar, 2006). Oxidation weight-gain kinetics was evaluated for the A588 steel by thermal-gravimetric method at a range of temperatures (475°C to 600°C). Isothermal oxidation tests were conducted in dry air. Oxidation ...
