  • International Tire Recycling Spotlight: Venezuela

    Tire recycling is a serious global concern. Scrap tires take up far too much space, they can spawn devastating tire fires that burn for weeks or even months when stored together in large numbers, and they they leach chemicals into soil and groundwater. Recycling is an absolute necessity, but not easily done. Most developed countries have produced millions of scrap tires (at the very least), and ...

  • Oil in Power Plant Wastewater

    The water is from the operations of a steam power plant located in the Bahamas. The water samples were taken from the Unit 31 (lower oil content) and Tank #3 (a higher oil content). The samples were tested and it was found through the jartesting procedures that the Floccin K was the best choice for floc size and water clarity. The Unit 31 was dosed at 0.5 gram in 1,000 ml and the Tank # 3 water ...

  • The Future of Nuclear Power Plants

    With the blast of the French nuclear power plant a few weeks ago, safety of nuclear power plant designs has fallen under more scrutiny. Although according to sources the blast took place in the turbine hall and no nuclear leak was found, this event has brought more attention to improved design and operation standards. Following the incident earlier this month Toshiba, a Japanese ...

  • EDI for Power Plants -- Importance of silica

    Power plants use high purity water to drive steam turbines. Cogeneration plants are highly efficient, using both exhaust turbines and high pressure steam turbines. In the 1960's, boilers operated at 450C (840F) and 4MPa (40 atmospheres). Today's leading edge boilers operate at 620C (1150F) and 30MPa (300 ...

  • Exergoeconomic evaluation of a geothermal power plant

    In this study, exergy and exergoeconomic analyses of the Dora II geothermal power plant (DGPP) with 9.5 MW net power output are carried out by using real thermodynamic and cost data. The exergetic efficiency of this plant is calculated to be 29.6%. The highest exergy destruction rate among the DGPP components occurs in the cooling towers followed by the turbines, vaporisers, preheaters and pumps. ...

  • Economics of tiny thermal power plants

    Thermal power plants is the main source of energy and electricity in India and almost all countries of the world. Most of the giant thermal power plants have capacity of 500MW to 1000 MW. Investment in such giant thermal power plants is Rs 100 million per MW including transmission lines and distribution lines. ( 60 rupees = 1 US$, MW=1000KW). So 1000MW thermal power plant costs Rs 100 million/MW ...

  • Captive power plant efficiency for Africa

    Power distribution networks across Africa are notoriously unreliable. Frequent power interruptions can be enormously costly for many of the continent’s factories. Not only do power outages disrupt production batches, they can also damage or reduce the life of important plant components such as kilns. This too has a knock-on effect on wider the country’s gross domestic product – ...
