  • Efficiency of a standard gas-turbine power generation cycle running on different fuels

    This paper presents a study of second-law efficiency in a standard Brayton combined cycle power generation, using several paraffinic fuels ranging from methane to heptane. The main objective of the study was to identify a trend with the number of carbon atoms in the compound. In this way, a qualitative criterion can be built to evaluate the properties of poor-quality gas turbine fuels containing ...

  • Taking Fossil Fuels to the Next Level - Standards Underpin Extraction, Processing and Distribution

    To the average person, the oil and gas industry may appear simple — a matter of literally tapping into a natural resource and distributing it to customers. Of course the matter of extraction is rarely simple, and in the case of emergent hydraulic fracturing technology, it is particularly complex and capital-intensive. In fact, the world of petroleum and natural gas extraction, distribution ...

  • Perfect products for fuel consumption

    In present time fuel customers get offered a row of perfect products for fuel consumption enhancement, processes of combustion, both in petrol engines for cars, and to the diesel. All additives to petroleum are harmless to the car and serve as protection against the low-quality fuel which has got to a tank and will increase saving. They will secure and will burn any petroleum and if fuel is a ...

  • Fuel alternatives for heavy equipment

    High fuel prices are leading composters and wood grinders to reevaluate diesel-guzzling heavy equipment, looking to alternatives that are both more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. This could be as “simple” as filling up existing machines with biodiesel blends, could involve swapping out a diesel model for an electric one, or even go as far as generating electricity on site to power ...

  • The Future of Secondary Materials as Fuel

    Many questions related to the regulatory status of facilities that use secondary materials as alternative fuels are anticipated to be answered in 2010.  In simple terms, if a combustion source uses a secondary material that is characterized as solid waste as an alternative fuel, then that source could be subject to a Clean Air Act (CAA) Section 129 standard.  If the same source used a ...
