Gasification Technologies: A Primer for Engineers and Scientists

by CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group

In contrast to traditional combustion, gasification technologies offer the potential for converting coal and low or negative-value feedstocks, such as petroleum coke and various waste materials into usable energy sources or chemicals. With a growing number of companies operating and marketing systems based on gasification concepts worldwide, this ...;

Xylem Structure and the Ascent of Sap

by Springer

The first edition of this book was the first to provide an integrated description of sap ascension from an anatomical and functional point of view. The second edition opens with the three-dimensional aspects of wood anatomy. The cohesion-tension theory and new evidence are introduced in response to recent controversies over the mechanism of sap ...;

Power Generation from Solid Fuels

by Springer

Power Generation from Solid Fuels introduces the different technologies to produce heat and power from solid fossil (hard coal, brown coal) and renewable (biomass, waste) fuels, such as combustion and gasification, steam power plants and combined cycles etc. The book discusses technologies with regard to their efficiency, emissions, operational ...;

Carbon Dioxide Removal from Coal-Fired Power Plants

by Springer

To diminish the threat of a rapidly changing climate, emissions of CO2 should be reduced. One way to reduce these emissions is CO2 removal -- the recovery of carbon dioxide from energy conversion processes and storage outside the atmosphere. This book, authored by one of the pioneers in this field, gives an extensive description of three ...;

Biorefineries

by Springer

Industrial biorefineries have been identified as the most promising routes to the creation of a bio-based economy. Partial biorefineries already exist in some energy crop, forest-based, and lignocellulosic product facilities. Biorefineries: For Biomass Upgrading Facilities examines the variety of different technologies which integrated bio-based ...;

Reduction, Modification and Valorisation of Sludge: REMOVALS

by IWA Publishing

The adoption of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive requires sewage sludge to be subsequently treated and the Sewage Sludge Directive regulates the uses and properties of stabilised sludge for being either recycled or disposed. Both directives drive specific actions in two complementary ways.;

The Effect Of Biomass Feedstock Type & Process Parameters On Achieving The Total Carbon Conversion In The Large Scale Fluidized Bed Gasification Of Biomass

by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland

One option for the production of liquid biofuel in Finland is based on fluidized bed gasification of biomass and Fischer-Tropsch synthesis process. The totalcarbon conversion achieved in the gasifier, operating at temperatures below 1000°C, depends mainly on the reactivity of solid char residue. The reactivity of the char residue is affected by ...;

Effluents from Alternative Demilitarization Technologies

by Springer

The book assesses a broad range of effluents (process residues) from a selection of worldwide technologies that have been proposed as alternatives to incineration for the remediation and destruction of chemical warfare agents and associated matériel. Treatment of metal parts and explosive or energetic materials are considered. The alternative ...;
