Field monitoring and numerical modeling as tools in effect-evaluation of waste heat and chlorination byproducts via cooling water discharges

by DNV GL Energy  (May 25, 2010)

Power plants and other industrial facilities apply cooling water to remove waste heat from their condensers and heat exchangers. These industries are obliged to predict the thermal and environmental effects on the water bodies on which the discharge takes place in order minimize negative impact on aquatic organisms. The general approach of EC ...

Energy and exergy analysis of an Automobile Heat Pump system

by Inderscience Publishers  (Oct. 20, 2008)

This study deals with energy and exergy analysis of an Automobile Heat Pump (AHP) system using R134a as the working fluid and ambient air as a heat source. An experimental AHP system consisting of original components from an Automobile Air Conditioning (AAC) system and some extra equipment was developed and instrumented. The system was operated in ...

Influence of Decreasing Heating Value on MSW Combustion

by AquaConsoil  (Jan. 1, 2000)

Test runs in the TAMARA test facility to investigate the influence of decreasing lower heating value on the combustion of waste showed that the combustion quality could easily be kept constant at heating values exceeding 5 MJ/kg. The burnout of grate ashes and flue gas had slightly fallen off at lower heating values whereas the level of PCDD/F in ...

Nexterra has developed a proprietary gasification technology that “takes wood waste material and [produces] ...

Spilled heavy grade heating oil case study

by Bio Systems Europe  (Aug. 9, 2013)

Heavy fuel oil escaped from a storage tank and entered the drainage system of a large creamery. This material passed to the aerated balance tank which precedes an activated sludge system treating the factory waste waters. Alerted to the spillage the operators were able to shut off the flow to the activated sludge system but not before a ...
