  • 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. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...


  • Perfect products for fuel consumption

    In present time fuel customers get offered a row of perfect products for fuel consumption enhancement, processes of combustion, both in petrol engines for cars, and to the diesel. All additives to petroleum are harmless to the car and serve as protection against the low-quality fuel which has got to a tank and will increase saving. They will secure and will burn any petroleum and if fuel is a ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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' ...

  • Bioenergy and charcoal production: an alternative option for disposal of combustible municipal wastes

    This project explored the possibility of using a CSIRO process to convert green waste (70,000 T/yr) to bioenergy. Tests conducted using CSIRO fluidised bed technique show that these wastes can be successfully converted to charcoal, and that this charcoal is very suitable for use as cooking fuels. The charcoal recovery rates achieved are also acceptable for commercial production and use as ...

  • India’s Potential in Harnessing the Alternate Energy Sources

    Long queues for gasoline, high prices and shortage of gasoline are the signs which show that how natural resources are on the verge of depletion. This shows that it is high time for us to view how to utilize natural resources. India is mainly depended on import of petroleum products for its energy requirements. It meets its requirements by importing 70% of petroleum products. This is a point of ...
