  • Times are changing: Wastewater as a resource

    Times are definitely changing. It used to be that wastewater from whatever source – domestic, agricultural, industrial – was something to collect and pipe away as quickly and efficiently as possible. There was more water coming out of the ground or falling from the sky, so why bother investing time and money cleaning water that had already been used? Now, thanks to issues like ...

  • Blockchain Technology Can Boost Climate Action

    Experts meeting at the recent UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn in May have said that a new technology called “Blockchain” could play a major role in tackling climate change. A Blockchain is a distributed database that is continuously updated and verified by its users. Each added block of data is “chained” and becomes part of a growing list of records, under the ...

  • Shredding Puzzle in the Process of Waste Material Recycling

    There are two main types of waste fabric waste: (1) the factory in the leather fabric processing and production of leather fabric can not be 100% of the use, so in the production of some by-products or waste, such as tailoring and sewing clothes when the extra cloth, cloth and other waste , As well as in the synthesis of chemical fiber in the process of excess waste and so ...

  • Data Centre CRAC unit efficiency improvements

    One of the main types of project Munters look at is energy efficiency improvements within the thermal management side. One of the easiest changes that can be made is swapping out the old AC powered motors for EC powered impellors. the reductions in energy is considerable, with some older belt drive unit changes measuring a saving of over 60% this is due to the design of the new impellors and the ...

  • The benefits of monitoring compressed air

    Compressed air is used in many manufacturing processes for many different reasons, from the actuation and control of pneumatic valves and cylinders to the operation of process machinery and tooling. It can also be used as a transport medium for bulk materials or as a purge gas. For all its uses it is nonetheless expensive. This is why, through detailed monitoring, a business can enjoy the ...

  • Ocean Thermal Energy and Water Production

    Introduction The scarcity of potable water is a growing problem worldwide, particularly in arid regions and among developing countries. Compounding this problem is the increasing contamination of freshwater sources, which comprise only about 2.5% of all water on Earth. Of this small portion, only 0.5% of the total fresh water available is found in easily accessible sources such as ...

  • Alternatives for energy production in aerobic wastewater treatment facilities

    Using technologies such as anaerobic digestion for energy generation from wastewater demands a change in infrastructure that several treatment works are not prepared to immediately implement. This works explores the use of energy production technologies to increase the sustainability of conventional aerobic wastewater treatment plants. The first option considered sludge (a by-product from ...

  • Problems of energy conservation and environmental impacts of energy production and consumption in Slovakia

    The current situation of the Slovak energy sector and its development since 1990 (Gross Domestic Product, primary energy sources, final energy consumption, energy intensity, electricity intensity, electricity consumption) is presented. A marked dependence on energy imports explains the necessity for energy conservation in Slovakia. Energy intensity in Slovakia is steadily decreasing; still there ...

  • Energy-sensitive control strategies for decoupled production systems

    Rising demand for energy caused by emerging economies, decreasing oil stocks, and the intended nuclear phase-out in some industrial countries has led to new problems concerning sufficient and on time energy supply. Since availability of energy has a dramatic influence on production, energy has to be considered a process prerequisite instead of a production-related overhead topic, as usually ...

  • Energy Efficient Products: the case of Latin America

    Companies manufacturing and selling appliances, equipment and lighting in Latin America (LA) face a growing demand from governments and consumers: reducing energy consumption. In a region of about 20 countries, where Spanish is the dominant language and regulatory systems are based on similar legal models, this demand wouldn’t seem to be a significant regulatory problem to energy-using ...

  • Renewable energy production issues with the Cape Cod offshore wind energy programme

    This paper evaluates the first offshore wind farm proposal in the USA. It is being put forward by Cape Wind Associates, a Boston-based firm that wishes to build 170 turbines five miles offshore in Nantucket Sound. The proposed development would supply up to 95% Cape Cod's energy needs and 2% of the energy requirements for the eastern New England region, preventing the need for additional fossil ...

  • Sludge Production

    Specific sludge production in wastewater treatment varies widely from 35 to 85 g dry solids per population equivalent per day (gTS PE-1 d-1). The production of primary sludge is related to the amount of settleable solids in raw wastewater whose solids content is typically of 50-60 gTSS PE-1 d-1 or 110-170 ...

  • Evaluation of municipal solid wastes (MSW) for utilisation in energy production in developing countries

    In countries such as Ghana, which are still undergoing restructuring in their economies, low-cost energy supplies are most vital for development initiatives and may not only be the main constraint to their economic growth, but a principal source of conflicts in this century. But whether a meaningful and sustainable economic growth would be achieved or not rests exclusively on the removal of these ...

  • Energy and exergy analyses of a steam reforming process for hydrogen production

    Hydrocarbon steam reforming is an important process for hydrogen production. In petroleum refineries, steam reforming is most commonly used for hydrogen production from naphtha and light hydrocarbon gases (methane, ethane and propane). Since the hydrocarbon steam reforming system is one of the highest energy intensive systems in a petroleum refinery it should be directed to a more efficient use ...

  • Solar Plus Energy Storage - A guide to maximizing production and profit with a DC converter

    Traditional storage plus solar (PV) applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus, or alternatively the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. Here we will examine how a new cost-effective approach of coupling energy storage to existing PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter can help maximize production and profi ts for existing and new utility-scale ...

  • Energy analysis and potentials of biodiesel production from Jatropha Curcas in Tunisia

    Oleaginous plants such as Jatropha Curcas Linnaeus (JCL), not intended for human consumption but used for biodiesel production, could contribute to beneficial outcomes. This plant grows on poor land (arid and marginal land) and is drought resistant. Jatropha Curcas is native to South America and widely grown in South and Central America, Africa, and Asia (Achten et al., 2007; Kumar et al., 2011). ...

  • LCA of innovative technology for energy production from automotive Shredder Residue

    Automotive Shredder Residue (ASR) is a problematic waste material remaining after shredding and recovery processes of End of Life Vehicles (ELV). Its heterogeneous grain size and composition make it difficult its recovery or disposal. While ASR accounts for about 20‐25% of the weight of an ELV, the EU's ELV Directive (2000/53/EC) requires that by 2015 a minimum 95% wt. of an end‐of‐life ...
