  • The Rationale for Accelerating Regionally Focused Climate Intervention Research

    Abstract Ten years ago, Paul Crutzen asked whether the time had come to consider undertaking research into intentionally intervening in the climate system so that it might be considered a policy option comparable to reducing emissions for limiting human-induced climate change. Crutzen’s article pointed out how little progress had been made in reducing emissions and suggested that ...

  • Biosolids ban struck down

    In 1994, Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts (LACSD) bought a 4,700-acre farm (called Green Acres Farm) in southwest Kern County for the purpose of land applying biosolids from its 11 wastewater treatment plants. LACSD land applied 800 wet tons/day at this site for several years. In 2006, Kern County voters passed Measure E on the ballot with 83 percent approval. This measure banned ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Energy efficiency indicators for public electricity production from fossil fuels

    Electricity production is responsible for 32% of total global fossil fuel use, accounting for 132 EJ, and 41%, or 10.9 Gt of energy-related CO2 emissions. Improving the efficiency of electricity production therefore offers economic benefits and a significant opportunity for reducing dependence on fossil fuels, which helps to combat climate change and improve energy security. A set of indicators ...

  • Value stream mapping based on energy and cost system for biodiesel production

    Organisations have to give more attention to customer demands for survival and also for increasing their market shares. But customers' demands are not stable. The main problem of all organisations is how to cut costs during production process. The solution to this problem is built up with lean–based production systems. Value stream mapping identifies those areas where unwanted productivity is ...

  • 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 ...
