  • Renewable energy from food wastes

    Food waste is an untapped energy source that mostly ends up rotting in landfills, thereby releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Food waste is difficult to treat or recycle since it contains high levels of sodium salt and moisture, and is mixed with other waste during collection. Major generators of food wastes include hotels, restaurants, supermarkets, residential blocks, cafeterias, ...

  • Rural electrification through renewable energy in Nepal

    Nepal is rich in hydropower. However, due to various constraints the rural sector of Nepal is still deprived of a national electrical grid. Renewable energy resources are the most viable and accessible sources to electrify these rural sectors. Micro-hydro and solar photovoltaics (PV) are widely used renewable energies for rural electrification. Presently, this source provides electricity to only ...

  • Micro-aeration for sulfide removal in anaerobic treatment of high-solid wastewater: a pilot-scale study

    The presence of sulfur compounds (e.g. protein, sulfate, thiosulfate, sulfite, etc.) in the feed stream generates highly corrosive and odorous hydrogen sulfide during anaerobic digestion. The high sulfide level in the biogas stream is not only poisonous to many novel metal catalysts employed in thermo-catalytic processes; but also reduces the quality of methane as a renewable energy. This study ...

  • Integration of embedded generation in local grid using STATCOM

    The renewable sources of energy are being connected to the local distribution system/local grid leading to embedded generation. As these sources are intermittent in nature, they impose technical challenges in the power system operation which include power quality related problems of local grid. The performance of the system has to be evaluated while connecting these sources to the local ...

  • Bio-fuels- Anaerobic digestion

    Anaerobic digestion is a series of processes in which micro organisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen. It is widely used to treat wastewater sludges and organic (agricultural) wastes.  As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digestion is a renewable energy source because the ...
