  • Shredding tyres stops zika virus breeding

    Zika is a dangerous disease threatening millions of people today in southern hemisphere. It is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). These mosquitoes bite during the day and night. Once you get bitten it is too late to do much but what is important is to prevent this mosquito from breeding. Mosquitos typically lay eggs near water because ...

  • Performance of microbial fuel cells on removal of metronidazole

    The microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are the focus of extensive investigation as one of the promising technologies for renewable energy generation and wastewater treatment. Two-chambered MFCs were designed to investigate the removal of metronidazole and to quantify the effect of antibiotic on the efficacy of energy generation. Using 1,000 mg glucose L−1 containing different concentrations of ...

  • From the biogas to vehicle fuel

    The biogas consists mainly of methane and carbon dioxide. Other components can be water and sulphur, mainlyhydrogen sulphide. To be able to use the biogas as vehicle fuel or to distribute it in natural gas grids the gas has to becleaned and upgraded. The biogas is upgraded by removing carbon dioxide to raise the calorific value and create a gaswith constant quality. One of the techniques to ...

  • Enhanced Removal of Separate Phase Viscous Fuel by Electrical Resistance Heating and multi phase Extraction

    Abstract A floating hydrocarbon plume at a manufacturing facility in Georgia was remediated using electrical resistance heating (ERH) and multi-phase extraction. The hydrocarbon was a specialty fuel similar to kerosene or diesel fuel. Initially, hydrocarbon covered an area of 4900 ft2 (500 m2) and was up to l0 ft (3 m) thick, with most wells containing 1-3 ft (0.5-1 m) of hydrocarbon. ...

  • Fuel Polishing & Transfer Systems

    Earlier this year, Algae-X International came out with a totally new line of Fuel Polishing & Transfer Systems designed and built there in Fort Myers, Florida facilities. By listening to its customers, boat builders and yacht owners alike, Algae-X found out what they wanted to have as an on board fuel optimization package. The design is modular, so the right system can be chosen for each ...

  • Removal of Lead from Gasoline

    On 12th March 1997, the European Commission adopted a proposal from the Environment Commissioner Ritt Bjerregaard on a European Union strategy to combat acidification. The strategy will, by 2010, reduce significantly the extent of the areas in the European Union where the tolerance of sensitive ecosystems to acidity is exceeded. Main elements of the strategy include establishment of national ...

  • Simultaneous pollutant removal and electricity generation in denitrifying microbial fuel cell with boric acid-borate buffer solution

    A double-chamber denitrifying microbial fuel cell (MFC), using boric acid-borate buffer solution as an alternative to phosphate buffer solution, was set up to investigate the influence of buffer solution concentration, temperature and external resistance on electricity generation and pollutant removal efficiency. The result revealed that the denitrifying MFC with boric acid-borate buffer ...

  • Effect of cathode electron acceptors on simultaneous anaerobic sulfide and nitrate removal in microbial fuel cell

    The current investigation reports the effect of cathode electron acceptors on simultaneous sulfide and nitrate removal in two-chamber microbial fuel cells (MFCs). Potassium permanganate and potassium ferricyanide were common cathode electron acceptors and evaluated for substrate removal and electricity generation. The abiotic MFCs produced electricity through spontaneous electrochemical ...

  • Simultaneous carbon and nitrogen removal using a litre-scale upflow microbial fuel cell

    A 10 L upflow microbial fuel cell (UMFC) was constructed for simultaneous carbon and nitrogen removal. During the 6-month operation, the UMFC constantly removed carbon and nitrogen, and then generated electricity with synthetic wastewater as substrate. At 5.0 mg L−1 dissolved oxygen, 100 Ω external resistance, and pH 6.5, the maximum power density (Pmax) ...

  • Making biodiesel blends fuel is simple

    Biodiesel is made in the process of transesterification of vegetable oil by methanol, although sometimes ethanol or isopropyl alcohol are used instead. The ration is approximately 200 kg of methanol per 1 ton of oil (plus potassium or sodium hydroxide). Process temperature is approximately 60°С, no pressure increase is required. After the transesterification reaction, the content of ...

  • 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 ...

  • Domestic fuel price and the Nigerian macroeconomy

    This study examined empirically a one–to–one nexus between domestic fuel price and various macroeconomic variables in Nigeria for the period spanning 1986 to 2011. The study adopted both a vector auto–regressive (VAR) and a vector error correction (VEC) models for appropriate analysis. For pairs of variables that are integrated of the same order but not co–integrated, the VAR model revealed that ...

  • Maintaining fuel quality in a stored environment

    What do all of these true stories have in common? Poor fuel quality. In all of these cases, poor fuel quality shutdown emergency standby power generators exactly when they were being counted on in the middle of adisaster. And the number of hurricanes, wildfires, blackouts, floods, earthquakes and the like in recent yearshas added significantly to the lore, though most are closely guarded stories ...
