  • Analysis of alternative fuels

    The use of alternative fuels in the cement and building materials industries is becoming increasingly important. Alternative fuels enable cement manufacturers to control production costs and improve environmental performance – two very significant benefits for one of the world’s most energy intensive industries. If international targets for the reduction of CO2 emissions are to be met, then the ...

  • Ohio cuts alternative fuel mandate in transportation budget

    On April 1, 2015, the Governor of Ohio, John Kasich (R), signed the 2016-2017 Transportation Budget Bill (Sub. H.B. 53). The state transportation budget does not include a requirement on alternative fuel use in the state vehicle fleet, a requirement that had been in place since 2006. Ohio Department of Transportation's ...

  • Alternative Fuels for Air Pollution Control

    Non-traditional, alternative fuels are all the rage now, especially with government pressure forcing increasing numbers of fossil-fired assets to shut down. While wind and solar have a place in our energy future, neither is reliable or inexpensive enough to be the complete answer.  Industry is looking for new fuels that can replace coal, oil and natural gas. Proposed alternative fuels come ...

  • Strategies for utilizing alternative fuels by Iranian passenger cars

    Abstract: The current paper is an attempt to find a sustainable fuel strategy for passenger cars in Iran. Currently, most of Iran’s passenger cars consume gasoline, a non-renewable fossil fuel. This fuel has well-known environmental impacts, including various kinds of pollutions, as well as the threat of quick running out. These general negative characteristics of gasoline are amplified by the ...

  • Sustainable energy: the importance of consumer awareness, acceptance, and action

    The debate about peak oil has been raging for the last 40 years, yet, the fact remains that oil is not a sustainable resource and will eventually run out. It is unclear whether the consumer has accepted this fact. In the meantime, preparation is needed to find truly 'alternative' fuels; however, such new technology requires consumer acceptance and support, not only to create the technology, but ...

  • Practical guide to alternative fuel utilisation

    Today’s business environment for the cement producers is becoming more challenging. Rising production costs and environmental regulations are only two of the main limiting factors. Therefore the cement industry is using alternative fuels. In most cement kiln processes today, the conventional fuels (primary fuels) are gas, fuel oil, various coals and petcoke. The required calorific values can be ...

  • Alternative Fuel from Waste

    Alternative Fuel From Waste Municipal waste has always been seen by the public as the foul-smelling waste that nobody wants near home. In the last decades due to the cost increasing of raw materials for heating and electric energy production, it has begun to evaluate and use waste as an “alternative” energy source. ...

  • Methanol blending is alternative fuel of the future

    The main objective of “alcohol fuel power” field is increase of fuel resources for transport by using right alternative  such as ethanol and methanol blending with gasoline, which unlike pure oil fuel, are characterized renewable and have unlimited sources of raw materials. Margin of oil (valuable hydrocarbonic raw materials for petrochemical productions) and also a power ...

  • Environmental impact of using biodiesel as fuel in transportation: a review

    The environmental pollution and global warming associated with the use of fossil fuels, has forced a search for alternative fuels in transportation. This paper presents a review of the use of biodiesel in CI engines and its environmental impacts. There is a significant reduction in the emission of unburned hydrocarbons, polyaromatic hydrocarbons and soot, particulate matters, carbon monoxide, ...

  • Time and scale in Life Cycle Assessment: the case of fuel choice in the transport sector

    Life Cycle Assessments (LCA, including Well-to-Wheel studies) that are to support decisions that strive to change large technical systems need to consider time and scale related factors, which are given little attention in standard LCA procedures. Here, we address three issues and provide examples from the case of alternative fuels. First, shifting time frame gives room for technical development ...

  • RDF for cement kilns

    The use of the cement has significantly contributed to the worldwide economies. In fact cement is considered to be the second most consumed substance in our society and apparently the amount of it, used in construction, is more than double that of the total of all other building materials, including wood, steel, plastic and aluminium. Nowadays the cement industry has important environmental ...

  • It’s in the Baghouse

    The Lafarge Malogoszcz plant in Poland started up its new fabric filter in May 2005, with a revamped gas conditioning tower for clinker production line 2. The precalciner, kiln and raw mill are dedusted by a Scheuch EMC baghouse, which replaced the existing ESP. Scheuch participated in this project from engineering to start up, and it was completed in only eight months. The daily clinker capacity ...

  • Geology and coal potential of Somaliland

    Geological field mapping along with available geological and drilling data suggest that Somaliland (Northwestern Somalia) has favourable stratigraphy and structure for coal deposits. Lignitic to sub-bituminous coal deposits with ages from Jurassic to Oligocene-Miocene occur in various locations across the country including Hed-Hed valley south of Onkhor, Guveneh hills north of Las Dureh and Daban ...

  • `Accepting the Resource Conservation Challenge: Clearing Permitting Barriers for Acceptance of Alternative Fuels,` presented at the 2007 A&WMA Hazardous Waste Combustors conference

    Abstract With the surge in fuel prices in the past two years, industry has initiated efforts to utilize various alternative fuels that may have historically been overlooked. Material with energy value such as scrap tires, waste plastics, tallow, bone meal, bulk solids, auto fluff, wood waste, etc. are now being sought out for use as lower cost alternative fuels. Once an alternative fuel ...

  • Environmental pollution from the use of alternative fuels in a four-stroke engine

    This paper discusses the use of the fuels propane and butane–propane (80:20) in a four-stroke engine made to function with gasoline (petrol). The experiment covered gas emissions, emissions temperature and fuel consumption. It was observed that gas emissions were reduced compared with gasoline. The reduction for carbon monoxide emissions was greater when butane–propane was used. The same was true ...

  • New Regulations for Biomass and Other Alternatative Fuels

    EPA completed new rules that changed the way they look at "nontraditional" fuels. Using these alternative fuels to generate energy makes a facility subject to emission limits and rules regulation boilers. In December U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) completed new rules that changed the way they look at'nontraditional" fuels. Materials that can meet the newly revised standards are ...

  • Peak oil and energy security: can alternative fuels and vehicles save us?

    Peak oil can be defined as the point in time when global oil production reaches its maximum annual rate, after which the annual production rate generally declines. Against an expected profile of growing demand for oil-based transport fuels, when peak oil occurs, it could create a growing transport fuel supply gap which, if not filled, would be expected to lead to very high prices for petroleum ...
