  • Fuel alternatives for heavy equipment

    High fuel prices are leading composters and wood grinders to reevaluate diesel-guzzling heavy equipment, looking to alternatives that are both more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. This could be as “simple” as filling up existing machines with biodiesel blends, could involve swapping out a diesel model for an electric one, or even go as far as generating electricity on site to power ...

  • The Impact of Alternative Fuels on the Cement Manufacturing Process

    The cement industry in Finland has a great interest in studying to what extent fuel (usually coal) can be replaced by alternative fuels, e.g. processed industrial waste materials. Alternative fuels provide opportunities for reducing production costs. Further benefits are environment-related: reduction of emissions, utilisation of energy from alternative fuels etc. A project in this field started ...


  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Economical and Effective biogas process to Purify alternative fuels for Power generation

    Abstract Energy recovery from biogas is becoming more common, but the processes are hampered with the presence of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Biogas is a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide (CO2) and is often contaminated with toxic quantities of H2S. Sources of biogas are: municipal landfills that produce landfill gas (LFG); wastewater treatment plants; industrial plants; and large scale ...

  • Munchers’ vital role in alternative fuel production

    SRM is one of Europe’s largest companies in the field of organic waste disposal, processing around 300,000tonnes a year. Solving waste problems through recycling or energy recovery is its speciality, and the ISO14001 registered company operates a total of seven sites in the UK. SRM was acquired by the worldwide building materials group Heidelberg Cement in 1999 because of the considerable ...

  • Bio-Diesel- The alternate fuel for Indian Railways

    Global population explosion, rapid industrialization and greater human activities have been demanding more and more fuels/energy. On the other hand the reserve of fossil fuel is depleting day- by- day signaling a dark future for the mankind. In this scenario research in the field of renewable energy has increased. One such burning topic of the day is the production of “Bio-Diesel”. Bio-diesel is ...


  • 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 ...

  • Production of synthetic gasoline and diesel fuels by alternative processes using natural gas, coal and biomass: process simulation and economic analysis

    The problem of producing synthetic liquid fuels by alternative routes is addressed. Industrial processes known as Gas To Liquid (GTL), Coal To Liquid (CTL) and Biomass To Liquid (BTL) are considered: they use natural gas, coal and biomass as feedstocks, respectively. By means of process simulation, it is shown that the fuel produced on a weight basis per unit of feedstock (natural gas, coal and ...

  • 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' ...

  • Permitting of Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials at Portland Cement Plants Post NSR Reform

    Introduction One of the ways that the portland cement industry is seeking eco-efficiency gains is in waste co-processing and energy/material recovery - using the waste and by-products of other industries as fuels and raw materials for cement manufacture.1 These wastes and by¬products of other industries, such as tires and plastics (fuels) or blast furnace slag and fly ...

  • Novel environmental friendly process for reducing the sulphur level in fuel: pervaporation

    Pervaporation (PV) is an alternative membrane-based process for removal of sulphuric components with low energy consumption. In PV, selective removal bases on the concentration difference between two sides of membrane. In sulphur removal process hydrophobic membranes are generally used due to the flexible chain structure. If the solution parameters and polarities of membranes are close to the ...

  • Business seeks viable alternatives to price cutting

    The UK manufacturing industry is undergoing a severe recession. Any business involved in production is facing serious competition from countries that can produce goods at much lower prices due to cheaper equipment, labour and general costs. Globalisation has meant that companies have had to expand their focus to include new and expanding markets. Assessing where manufacturing functions are best ...
