The climatic change and the increase of the demand have made of the water and energy saving one of the main worldwide objectives. AZUD has joined this tendency not only working to maximize the saving of water, but also of energy.
Improving Chiller Energy Efficiency Through Automatic Tube Cleaning System Technology
In this paper, solutions for improving chiller energy efficiency by reducing fouling of shell and tube heat exchangers are discussed. Sponge-ball type automatic tube cleaning system technology is introduced and discussed as a solution for improving chiller energy efficiency and tube cleaning system operating principles are presented.Multiple case studies are provided demonstrating the positive impacts of tube cleaning system technology implementation INTRODUCTIONShell and tube condensers and heat exchangers are...
Japan - Floating to a Clean Energy Future
A country struck by disaster harnesses the power of ocean winds to set sail for a brighter, greener future Nearly 16,000 people were killed when a 9.0 earthquake triggered a tsunami that crashed into the east coast of Japan five years ago. The 30 foot wall of cold, black water wiped out entire towns and villages and triggered one of the world`s worst nuclear disasters. The nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant forced the government to take all 48 of the country`s nuclear reactors offline. At a...
How can we ensure the race for clean energy doesn’t leave the world’s poorest citizens behind?
As in other places around the world, Mexico’s wind boom runs the risk of bypassing the poor, which is why we need new global standards. Wind power is booming in Mexico. With more than 3,200 megawatts in operation, the country is on par with Japan. By 2018 it expects to have 10,000 MW installed as part of the government’s Climate Action Plan. Promising, right? Scratch the surface of that boom, however, and you’ll find uncomfortable truths: land rights conflicts and perceived inequities in...
New documentary showcases the promise of solar energy
What do an unemployed American worker, a Tea Party activist and a Chinese entrepreneur have in common? They’re all part of a new documentary film highlighting the growth of solar energy around the world. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Shalini Kantayya and featuring stories from the U.S. and China, “Catching the Sun” focuses on the global race to lead the clean energy future. According to a report late last year from the International Energy Agency, new renewable energy installations are...
Coming Clean with the Environment
Long Island is a long, slender island located directly east of Manhattan in the southern tip of New York State. In the 20th century, the north shore of Long Island earned the nickname of “Gold Coast” and attracted large private estates of the likes of the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, Whitneys, Charles Pratt, J. P. Morgan, F. W. Woolworth, and others. The western end of the island includes Brooklyn and Queens, while the eastern tip includes the famous Hamptons.Long Island has always been the getaway place...
