Optimization of Anaerobic Digestion & Bio-Organic Catalyst Compositions (BOCs)

by EcoJump LLC  (Aug. 19, 2014)

Abstract: Anaerobic digestion offers excellent opportunities to convert organic waste streams into environmentally safe bio-solids and generation of renewable energy through the bio-methane produced by the microbiological populations processing the wastes. Bio-organic catalyst compositions (BOCs) offer improvements in enhancing anaerobic ...

Solar powered solid oxide fuel cell with thermoelectric generator

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jul. 2, 2014)

Durable, location independent, environmental–friendly sources of energy which allow for modular, few moving parts, low operating noise, high electricity generation efficiency and compact technology are highly desirable. Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are promising for such energy system development, since they are energy efficient and, if pure ...

Thermophilic two-phase anaerobic digestion of source-sorted organic fraction of municipal solid waste for bio-hythane production: effect of recirculation sludge on process stability and microbiology over a long-term pilot-scale experience

by IWA Publishing  (Jun. 5, 2014)

A two-stage thermophilic anaerobic digestion process for the concurrent production of hydrogen and methane through the treatment of the source-sorted organic fraction of municipal solid waste was carried out over a long-term pilot scale experience. Two continuously stirred tank reactors were operated for about 1 year. The results showed that ...

Socio–environmental responses to solid waste management in urban areas: the case of Atonsu suburban in Kumasi Metropolis, Ghana

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jun. 2, 2014)

In urban Ghana, solid waste problem has been worsened by the increasing rate of urbanisation and the alteration of urban consumption pattern towards packaging, which tends to produce large amounts of solid waste. This paper examines the social and environmental responses to solid waste management of urban dwellers in Atonsu in Ghana. Mixed method ...

Principles of HDD Solids Control & Buyers Guide

by KEMTRON Technologies, Inc.  (Jun. 1, 2014)

Relative to the use of drilling fluids within the oil & gas industry, the use of drilling fluids within the horizontal directional drilling (“HDD”) industry, is new.   As the use of HDD technology did not become mainstream until the 1980’s, it took another decade before drillers started to consider the use of basic ...

An eco–sustainable model on energy recovery from municipal solid waste

by Inderscience Publishers  (May 29, 2014)

In the present day situation, the toxicity in municipal solid waste has increased to a very high level leading to various problems. The main purpose of the study is to improve the quality of mixed solid waste by adding locally available biomass. It was observed that the feedstock for refuse derived fuel and biomethanation contains 12% and 20% ...
