  • Raw material cycle: from chip to briquette to product - Case Study

    Thanks to their briquetting system from RUF Frischhut can redeploy production scrap and melt it again Ludwig Frischhut GmbH and Co. KG have closed the circle on their raw material cycle by utilising a briquetting press from RUF: cast chips produced during the machining of parts for water supply and sewage disposal are pressed to solid briquettes and then melted in the in-house foundry and ...

  • Caltech working to solve the world`s energy problems with the help of inVia

    Fossil fuels are the world's main fuel source for transportation, heating and generating electricity. As a by-product, high levels of CO2 are released into the atmosphere. With the drive for sustainable energy production, a method that generates easily-stored fuel from sunlight—and absorbs CO2—is a very attractive proposition. The California Institute of Technology ...

  • Demonstration of Solar-Enhanced Fuels for Electricity and Transport Applications

    This project aims to demonstrate improved cost-effectiveness of solar technology by using concentrated solar energy in a new “solarization” process to reform natural gas with steam and CO2 to produce syngas, which can feed a gas turbine. This project will build on work already conducted by China, Japan, and Australia, that will ultimately develop new reactors and catalysts able to use CO2 as a ...

  • China awakes to clean transportation

    In the following months and at least until the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, Chinese roads and cities, particularly in Beijing and Shanghai, will be a choice testing ground for different types of clean individual and collective low-pollution vehicles, such as fuel cell, hybrid and electric vehicles. We already knew that hybrid microturbine buses were to be road tested in China. Now ...

  • Envision 2050: The Future of Transportation

    What will transportation be like in 2050? Will we all be stuck in one giant traffic jam? Flying to our appointments in personal airborne delivery systems? Teleporting ourselves and our stuff around? Or not going anywhere at all? In large part, the answers to these questions will depend on how we answer two other questions today: What would we like it to be like? And what would it ...

  • CSAPR - The new transport rule

    The core of the new Transport Rule was published in the Federal Register (76 FR 48208), approximately one year after the main rule proposal (75 FR 45210) (covered in the Fall 2010 Environmental Quarterly, Federal Transport Rule — the “New CAIR” Round 1). The new rule is known by two names. In press releases and on the EPA website, the rule is referred to as the Cross-State Air ...

  • Green transportation: need, technology and challenges

    Internal combustion (IC) engine based vehicles are the backbone of the modern transport sector. These vehicles use fossil fuels as a source of energy to propel it and emit toxic gases. These noxious gases harm the environment and causes human health problems. Hasty usage of fossil fuels results in rapid depletion of these resources and price inflation. These concerns encourage the modern society ...

  • Extraordinary electron and phonon transport through metal-semiconductor hybrid nanocomposite: decoupling electrical and thermal conductivities for thermoelectric application

    We report a simple method involving mechanical attrition followed by hot press sintering to fabricate tablet samples consisting of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) dispersed in luminescent silicon nanocrystal (Si NC) matrix. A dramatic increase in current by almost six orders of magnitude is observed for this type of Si NC-Ag NP hybrid nanocomposite compared with bare Si NC-based tablets. Collective ...

  • Electrical and thermal transport properties of magnetically aligned multi-walled carbon nanotubes spray coated on copper substrates

    A magnetic field was applied to multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) decorated with Fe 3 O 4 nanoparticles while being spray coated on copper substrates to obtain a preferred orientation. The Fe 3 O 4 -MWNTs hybrid materials were aligned vertical or horizontal on the copper substrate and their electrical and thermal transport properties were investigated. The ...

  • Transportation cost analysis of the Hellenic system for alternative management of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment

    This work presents an ex post analysis of the reverse logistics system for the alternative management of WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) in Greece, in view of the system's initiation in 2004. The aim was to predict how this system would provide guidelines concerning facility locations for WEEE collection and to calculate the transportation costs for WEEE management. A ...

  • Variable–range hopping transport: crossovers from temperature dependence to electric field dependence in disordered carbon materials

    Variable–range hopping (VRH) is an important conduction mechanism in disordered conductors. One example of such a disordered conductor is reduced graphene oxide in which VRH dominates the temperature dependence of electronic conduction. Electronic transport is generally by electric field–assisted, thermally–driven VRH, following the theory of Mott, and Pollak and Riess. However, with the increase ...

  • Sowing the seeds of smarter transport policy

    Did we miss something? Last year, the European Commission didn’t propose a single new legislative measure to clean up transport. To be fair, it has been spending most of its time worrying about the future of the Eurozone. As a result, for T&E this was the sort of year where seeds for smarter transport policy were sown. We’re optimistic that next year could bring a decent crop of ...

  • The comeback of the electric car

    High prices at the pump will fuel consumer interest in electric vehicles. That at least is what investors are hoping as they pour hundreds of millions of dollars into technology that uses battery packs to power automobiles instead of internal combustion engines.Take the Chevy Volt concept car that was unleashed at the North American International Auto Show in 2007. It provoked such a flurry of ...

  • Quantum transport in one-dimensional GaAs hole systems

    In many advanced semiconductor devices, the physical dimensions are sufficiently small that quantum physics becomes important in determining the device behaviour. A celebrated example is the quantum wire, where in the absence of scattering the conductance is quantised in units of 2e²/h. Although electron quantum wires have been studied extensively for almost two decades, the development of hole ...

  • Lean Green Transportation Machines: Adopting Strategies For The Future

    The challenge of implementing greener transportation systems—ones that don’t rely on fossil fuels—includes the adoption of new technology, modifying infrastructure and changing human behavior. That may sound difficult, but it is happening now. For example, bike sharing programs are being instituted in many cities. The goal is to reduce short car trips within the city ...

  • Mitigation of road transport carbon emissions in Argentina

    This study describes a model to calculate energy consumption and CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by the road transport sector in Argentina from 1960 to 2050. The model analyses different mitigation scenarios to determine effective options to produce a sensitive decrease in carbon emissions. The results of this study show that by reducing the use of private vehicles while ...

  • Introduction to the BioCar Nature Based Transportation Systems

    The people of the world are rapidly growing aware of the full impact of current transport systems upon their safety, economy, health and environment. This has not been lost on the major auto companies who have spent millions of man-hours and billions of dollars over the last decade in pursuit of the Next Generation Vehicle. But they have little to show for their efforts having been increasingly ...


  • California bolsters reputation as clean transportation vanguard

    California released its ambitious Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Action Plan last month, aimed at accelerating the market for ZEVs as part of the state's long-term transportation strategy. The Action Plan will assist California in meeting milestones set out in a 2012 Executive Order, principally having 1.5 million ZEVs on the state's roads by 2025, including hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles and ...
