  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • Reduced Emissions for Landfill Gas Installations

    The use of landfill gas as a source of renewable energy is increasing. For environmental and safety reasons, the owners of the waste storage sites have to strictly monitor and control the construction, operations, and emissions generated. Sulzer offers solutions to control these emissions within the limits given by the government. Landfill gas is similar to natural gas, but it is created by ...

  • Oil shales - a competitive fuel of thermal power generation with new technologies

    We show that, in spite of the low heat of combustion of oil shales, use of them on the basis of a new thermal-processing technology that produces high-calorie products (shale tar and fuel gas) makes this type of fuel competitive for thermal power plants (TPPs) in comparison with high-calorie coals. When a certain amount of shale tar and all of the fuel gas are used in a combined cycle of a TPP, ...

  • Environmental Profile of the Fossil Fuel Electric Power Generation Industry

    Introduction The EPA's Office of Compliance has developed a series of profiles or notebooks containing information on selected major industries. These notebooks, which focus on key indicators that holistically present air, water, and land pollutant release data, have been thoroughly reviewed by experts from both inside and outside the EPA. What will you find in this ...

  • Fuel cells - the environmentally friendly energy converter and power generator

    Heat engines based on fossil fuel combustion produce harmful pollutant emissions. Environmental concerns and sustainable development call for new technology for energy conversion and power generation, which is more efficient, environmentally friendly and compatible with alternative fuels and renewable energy sources and carriers. Fuel cells meet all these requirements and are being rapidly ...

  • Biomass power generation in China

    “China is an agricultural country,” said Frank Miao. Farmers used to burn harvest waste, and the government decided to capture this energy by constructing a biomass power plant. At the end of 2006, the total biomass power generation capacity in China was approximately 2,200 megawatts (MW). The planned capacity of biomass power plants is 30,000 MW by 2020. Depending on the size of the plant, three ...

  • 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 ...

  • Solar powered solid oxide fuel cell with thermoelectric generator

    Durable, location independent, environmental–friendly sources of energy which allow for modular, few moving parts, low operating noise, high electricity generation efficiency and compact technology are highly desirable. Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are promising for such energy system development, since they are energy efficient and, if pure hydrogen is used, have virtually no emissions of ...

  • Economical and Effective biogas process to Purify alternative fuels for Power generation

    Abstract Energy recovery from biogas is becoming more common, but the processes are hampered with the presence of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Biogas is a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide (CO2) and is often contaminated with toxic quantities of H2S. Sources of biogas are: municipal landfills that produce landfill gas (LFG); wastewater treatment plants; industrial plants; and large scale ...

  • On limits for wind power generation

    The amount of wind power in the world increases fast. The background for this development is improved technology, decreased costs for the units and an increased concern of the environmental problems of competing technologies such as fossil fuels. For the future, it is now interesting to evaluate where the limits are for wind power generation, and which points are crucial. Since there is no power ...

    New York, NY Initial Climate Change Strategization Keywords:  Climate Change, diagnostic, program organization Marc Karell led a team to provide US Power Generating Company (USPG) strategic advice on how to address Climate Change issues and develop an internal Climate Change organization, and basic strategy. A meeting was organized with various senior leaders of the ...


  • Are fuel cells the future for stationary power?

    Fuel cells are one solution for generating stationary power for industry and grid balancing, but they are currently not competitive with conventional generation. Marc Height has a look at the market and at new, lower-cost technology coming to the fore that could change the playing field. Input hydrogen and oxygen into a very particular box and, like magic, electricity is produced, alongside heat ...
