  • Oil Recycling - Case Study

    The problem: Waste oil recycling contributes very much to climate protection through (CO2) energy saving. Compared to the production of base oil the re-refining of waste oil uses 34 % less resources. In the sixties the German government was subsidising the re-refining of waste oil. Because of that the use of waste oil as a fuel was neglected. The used oil re-refining is the ...

  • How to create qualitative fuel from water and coal: case study

    What is “coal-water fuel”?   Coal-water fuel (CWSF or CWS or CWF) is a fuel which consists of fine dispersed coal particles, water and plasticizing agent. This type of fuel is widely used as an alternative to gas and black oil on different heat generating facilities. The operational economy is the main of advantages ...

  • 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 ...

  • Biomass and Integration in Future Energy Systems and the Bioeconomy

    Biomass was the primary source of materials and energy until the industrial revolution set off a series of major changes around two hundred years ago. In the industrialized world fossil fuels became the primary source for energy in the forms of electricity and heat and provided almost all fuels for transport. However, biomass continued to maintain an important role in the economies in both ...

  • Why is Energy-from-Waste slow to catch on in the U.S.?

    Nithin Coca reports in TriplePundit that Energy-from-Waste (EfW) is growing fast in Europe and parts of Asia. But it’s relatively stagnant here in the United States. In fact, the percentage of waste we burn for energy is actually slightly down in the past five years. What’s holding the U.S. back from this potentially sustainable solution? This stagnation is even more ...

  • Coal-to-liquid fuels poised for a comeback

    Converting coal into liquid fuels is known to be more costly than current energy technologies, both in terms of production costs and the amount of greenhouse gases the process emits. Production of coal-to-liquid fuel, or CTL, has a large carbon footprint, releasing more than twice the lifecycle greenhouse gases of conventional petroleum fuels. However, with the rise in energy prices that began ...

  • Tips of installing the coal fired hot water boiler

    After buying an coal fired hot water boiler as being the heat power, the other thing the enterprise should think about is to install it. As all of those other boilers, the installation work likewise need the customer’s attention. Because the installation quality is directly connected ...


  • Coal and its future are fueling conflicts around the globe

    "Coal Wars: The Future of Energy and the Fate of the Planet" (Palgrave Macmillan), by Richard Martin Fierce conflicts over coal are taking place around the globe, but author Richard Martin says the decline and ultimate demise of the fuel that powered the Industrial Revolution is inevitable and cannot be reversed. What he cannot predict, he says, is whether the transition to energy sources that ...

  • Fuel Homogenization

    The structure of the financial expenses of automotive businesses and boiler plants is quite varied, though it still allows to identify the main expenditures. First of all, it is the fuel, which accounts for no less than 40% of all costs. Fuel homogenization devices are designed to increase the quality of combustion, thereby saving resources. Homogenized fuel features good performance, ...

  • Fans and fuel

    One of the fun things about researching articles is how you can end up in a totally different place than where you started. A few weeks ago, I was working on a story for the October issue of HDT on oil and coolant analysis. That led to what I'm going to talk about today, which is fans and fuel economy. It started out when I was talking to Mike Tourville with Evans, which makes a waterless ...

  • Water contamination in fuel: cause and effect

    Water exists in three physical states and depending on the surrounding conditions it finds its way to the fuel systems like the high pressure common rail (HPCR) fuel systems on diesel engines. The important point thereafter is to provide the best possible on-engine protection by securing the fuel injector systems from severe damage. As the environmental challenges and emission regulations become ...

  • Used Tires are Better Fuels than Coal and Coke, Aliapur Says

    A research conducted by French company Aliapur provides proof that burning used tires produce comparable energy (heat output) but less fossil CO2 emissions than burning coal or petroleum coke. Since used tires are not 100% fossil unlike coal and coke, their combustion emissions have renewable carbon or biomass fraction. Through ASTM D6866 testing, the biomass fraction of used tires was ...

  • Co-firing Solid Recovered Fuels (SRFs) with brown coal in large-scale pulverised fuel power plants – a simulation approach

    The results of the numerical simulations performed in a pulverised fuel boiler co-firing coal and Solid Recovered Fuels (SRFs) are presented. SRFs are initially modelled as a mixture of two different fractions (biogenic and plastic) and further simplifications are proposed to save computational expenses. The SRF submodels are validated with available data obtained from a laboratory-scale ...

  • Eco-fuel briquettes for sustainable development

    Raw coal is still burnt as fuel in many developing countries. Besides pollution from coal combustion, coal briquettes always face problems during transportation and storage because they are friable and susceptible to moisture. On the other hand, plastic waste in municipal solid waste is also a big problem which many countries are facing. Since synthetic plastics originate from petroleum products, ...

  • Pros and Cons of Fossil Fuels

    Used for centuries, fossil fuels have played a vital role in every individual’s life. It has been used for domestic and industrial purposes all across the world. Alike any other thing, it also has some advantages and disadvantages. Fossil fuels are the derivative of plant and animal fossils. As the name suggests, these are made from organic remains or decay of plants and animals. These ...

  • What is Diesel Fuel `ALGAE`?

    Algae are a life form found in water, similar to algae growing in an aquarium. However, for years, people have been referring to tank sludge and to the jelly, slime and other contaminants found in fuel filters as 'algae'. The colloquialism 'diesel fuel algae' is widely used and understood. However, there is no relationship between the 'algae' growing in your aquarium and the sludge 'growing' ...

  • Certain requirements for fuel blending

    Fuel, as well as all products, has certain requirements: it shouldn’t change the structure during the transporting and storage, to cause a deposit and gumming on engine parts, to intensify corrosion processes, to have the increased toxicity. Operation reliability of any engine, its capacity, durability, toxicity of exhaust in many respects depends on fuel quality. Commodity gasoline ...
