  • 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 ...

  • 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. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Dazed and Confused: Alternative fuels and the CISWI definitions rule

    As discussed in ALL4’s December 2008 issue of 4 The Record, the use of alternative and non-traditional fuels for heat and power generation is on the rise, an increase that can be attributed to the price surge and volatility of traditional fossil fuels, as well as to a general desire to use more environmentally friendly materials to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Alternative fuels have been ...

  • Natural gas as a promising alternative fuel for passenger cars

    The present work (as a field study) investigated the role of compressed natural gas (CNG), as an automotive fuel in CO, HC and CO2 emissions in vehicle exhaust. Besides evaluating the influence of the fuel-feed systems into their cylinders on a vehicular emission level, two different systems were examined; electronic fuel-injection and well-carburetted engines. The chosen vehicles were ...

  • Legal Lookout: Executive Order Supports Alternative Fuel Use

    On Jan. 24, 2007, President Bush signed Executive Order (EO) 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy and Transportation Management, which mandates that federal agencies reduce oil consumption, use more alternative fuels and curb greenhouse gas emissions. In his 2007 State of the Union address, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Tire Shredding: Alternatives to Landfills

    For many reasons, whole tires pose a major problem to landfills. The most obvious is the inefficient use of space. The actual rubber of a tire takes up only a small fraction of the space a tire occupies, and the rest of the space is wasted. A less obvious but far more serious problem is that tires may trap methane gasses when buried with other garbage in landfills. When this happens, the tires ...

  • The Alternative to Pump and Treat

    Sometimes, an important technological advance begins with a small step – back! Such is the case with remediation of hydrocarbons from groundwater utilizing existing recovery and monitoring wells. For the past few years, state government has based decisions on the amount of clean up that they require by the risk posed to the environment. Risk Based Corrective Action, commonly called 'Rebecca' ...

  • Mexico’s first commercial waste to energy facility to supply alternative fuel under agreement

    Mexico’s first Waste to Energy plant is up and running in Hermosillo, Sonora. The facility began to take shape two years ago, when total waste management specialist ...

  • Air quality issues drive vehicle alternatives

    Vehicle exhaust systems remain a major source of air pollution in cities, despite the progress being made to reduce emissions from new models. Energy World takes a look at efficiency improvements, and the alternative fuel alternatives to petrol and diesel. In early April, the south of Britain woke to a hazy blanket of smog. A few weeks earlier, Paris had choked and spluttered through its own ...

  • A project finance alternative: the bond market

    As many existing landfills reach capacity, local authorities and waste management companies face significant opposition to new development from property owners, municipalities and environmentalists. Rather than enduring an arduous battle, some stakeholders are pursuing a new, 21st- Century alternative. The evolution of the waste-toenergy (WTE) and waste-to-fuel (WTF) industry is accelerating as ...

  • The Future of Secondary Materials as Fuel

    Many questions related to the regulatory status of facilities that use secondary materials as alternative fuels are anticipated to be answered in 2010.  In simple terms, if a combustion source uses a secondary material that is characterized as solid waste as an alternative fuel, then that source could be subject to a Clean Air Act (CAA) Section 129 standard.  If the same source used a ...

  • End-of-life Tires as an Alternative Fuel (TDF) in Cement Kilns: Now Easier than Ever!

    End-of-life tires are a challenging type of waste since they are difficult to shred and are expensive to treat and get rid of. However, tire derived fuel TDF is an extremely good alternative to the traditional fuels used in cement kilns, like oil, coal, and petroleum coke. The following blog presents a solution and explains how TDF can be used for heating cement kilns. ...

  • Properties and Behavior of Fuels

    Fuel contaminants are generally nonhalogenated. Information presented for nonhalogenated VOCs and nonhalogenated SVOCs may also be appropriate for many of the fuel contaminants presented in this subsection. Contamination by fuel contaminants in the unsaturated zone exists in four phases: vapor in the pore spaces; sorbed to subsurface solids; dissolved in water; or as NAPL. The nature and extent ...

  • Suitability of cotton as an alternative crop in the ogallala aquifer region

    Renewed interest in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) production in the Ogallala Aquifer Region can be linked to development of early maturing varieties, rising energy costs, and declining water levels in the Ogallala Aquifer. The main objectives of this study were to assess the feasibility of growing cotton and estimate the cotton yield potential and the potential reduction in Ogallala Aquifer ...
