  • Fuel preparation technology – the latest safety considerations

    The specifications for new fuel preparation technologies are becoming increasingly sophisticated, as industry innovation continues apace. But when it comes to investing in waste shredders that help manufacture cement fuels, which criteria should top the procurement wish-list in 2018? With more than 25 years’ experience in this sector, Peter Streinik, head of UNTHA’s waste shredding ...

  • 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. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Recent Federal Developments

    TSCA/FIFRA EPA Extends Comment Period For Draft Guidance For Pesticide Registrants On Notifications, Non-notifications, And Minor Formulation Amendments: On October 5, 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a notice of extension of the comment period for the draft guidance  ...

  • 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 ...


  • 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 ...


  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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' ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Supercritical water oxidation presented as alternative to incineration – An update

    Environmentally benign waste disposal is becoming a more and more acute problem. A process now being commercialised, supercritical water oxidation is demonstrating extremely efficient organic waste destruction (99.99%) plus excellent environmental characteristics (none of the emissions associated with incineration). The process is especially suitable for the treatment of wastewater and sludges ...
