  • SGBI opinion article: shale gas

    Government perceives electric vehicles to be a panacea that will solve problems surrounding air quality and CO2 emissions simultaneously. The EV has two main selling points: reduced CO2 emissions and high efficiency. However, these are only valid at a superficial level and the argument disintegrates under any level of scrutiny. In terms of CO2 emissions, EVs replace ‘average’ cars to ...

  • Landfill Gas Use Trends In The United States

    MOST PEOPLE think of landfills as a necessary evil at best, but our current primary method of waste management generates a by-product with significant energy value - landfill gas (LFG). Collection and control of LFG results in significant reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. With the greater focus on climate change, a burgeoning market for GHG emission offsets is emerging and landfills ...

  • Columbus, Georgia`s High-Efficiency, Low Cost, Digester-Gas-Fired Power Plant

    ABSTRACTGrowing concern over the cost of power and long-term availability of limited fossil fuel resources for the production of electricity have caused electrical utilities and governments to promote “green” or renewable power. Solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, biogas, and low-impact hydroelectricity are current acceptable green-power sources. Digester gas is a renewable, green energy resource ...

  • Annual European Union greenhouse gas inventory 1990–2014 and inventory report 2016

    ES.1 Background information on greenhouse gas inventories and climate change The European Union (EU), as a party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), reports annually on greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories for the years between 1990 and the current calendar year (t) minus two (t–2), for emissions and removals within the area covered by its Member ...

  • An appraisal method of exergy cost minimisation for co-generation systems

    This study introduces an exergy cost-minimisation appraisal method for a simple gas turbine co-generation system. Optimisation of a gas turbine co-generation system of the electric output class of 17 MW is examined for a variety of turbine inlet temperatures of 950–1,300°C. An optimum value of the turbine inlet temperature exists for exergy cost minimisation and is estimated to be 1,200°C since ...
