  • Compost Dried Primary Sludge – A Renewable Energy Source?

    Abstract Napier is a city of almost 60,000 population on the east coast of the North Island, New Zealand. Napier City Council planned to upgrade its Awatoto Wastewater Milliscreening (0.75mm aperture) plant to advanced primary treatment (APT) and ultraviolet disinfection to improve the quality of discharge to the ocean through the existing 1600m long outfall into Hawke Bay. The APT plant ...

  • Voices from India on renewable energy sources

    As we all know that all natural resources on this earth are exhaustible sooner than later.  At the current rate in growth of Energy Demand of the world, Fossil Fuels would last in the following order: Oil is expected to last only 45 years, Gas 70 years and Coal 250 years from now.  The good quality coal of low ash content, however, may last only for another 70 to 100 years. Once these ...


  • Negative Power Generation Aspects of Adopting Renewable Sources

    Renewable energy resources are all the rage nowadays on a global scale with the biggest benefit of providing unlimited access without any fear of depletion or running out in the near future. It also provides the edge of saving the continuously decreasing fossil fuel reserves and to protect the planet against the harmful pollution caused by the burning of all non-renewable resources. Some common ...

  • Biomass and Integration in Future Energy Systems and the Bioeconomy

    Biomass was the primary source of materials and energy until the industrial revolution set off a series of major changes around two hundred years ago. In the industrialized world fossil fuels became the primary source for energy in the forms of electricity and heat and provided almost all fuels for transport. However, biomass continued to maintain an important role in the economies in both ...

  • Combined fuel cell?gas turbine plant for highly efficient power generation from renewable energy sources

    The impact of renewable energy sources on today's energy supply substantiates the importance of hydrogen as an energy carrier. Hydrogen can be directly produced from solar energy and is considered a promising technology for temporary storage of electrical energy from wind turbines and photovoltaic systems. The generation of electrical energy from stored hydrogen requires highly efficient systems ...

  • Why is Energy-from-Waste slow to catch on in the U.S.?

    Nithin Coca reports in TriplePundit that Energy-from-Waste (EfW) is growing fast in Europe and parts of Asia. But it’s relatively stagnant here in the United States. In fact, the percentage of waste we burn for energy is actually slightly down in the past five years. What’s holding the U.S. back from this potentially sustainable solution? This stagnation is even more ...

  • Can solar sources meet Australia's electricity and liquid fuel demand?

    It is commonly assumed that because of its relatively high solar energy incidence Australia will be able to meet its energy demand from solar sources. However, an examination of evidence on existing and probable future efficiencies and costs indicates that it will not be possible to derive sufficient electricity or liquid fuels to sustain the present high per capita rates of consumption from ...

  • Development and opportunities of distributed generation fuelled by renewable energy sources

    The key issue to the widespread of distributed generation (DG) is the ability to safely, reliably and economically interconnect new energy sources with the existing distribution network 'utility grid'. With the rising prices of petroleum fuel sources, a high expected penetration of renewable energy sources (RES) such as wind and solar as part of the emerging DG fuel resource are expected to be ...

  • From biogas to natural gas - A new renewable fuel supply line

    Continents and countries that depend on fossil fuels, such as Europe, and within Europe, northern Europe, are increasingly looking with interest at renewable energies and are committed to developing such energies as a source for future development. Biogas from different sources is a valuable material for the production of energy, chemical products and bio-fuels. Because it is a renewable energy, ...

  • Earthy, solaris and atmospheric energy sources

    Earth, sun and atmosphere are the ultimate energy resources. In addition to fossil fuels, earth radiates over 45 TW geothermal energy. Sun radiates about 89 PW energy to earth's surface. Lunar gravity supplies over 100 GW tidal ocean energy. Accessible energy from geothermal, solar, tides, waves and winds is far more than our current 17 TW energy demand, yet there are new avenues like tornadoes ...

  • Renewable energy in Armenia

    Armenia does not have any fossil fuel or coal reserves; therefore, it is entirely dependent on the imported fuel for transportation, electricity generation, and heat production. Armenian Government has plans to develop renewable energy resources. Renewable energy may not be the major source of energy development in Armenia but it should be an important component of it. A renewable energy road ...

  • Methane as an energy source for the 21st century

    Today, fossil fuels supply about 80% of global primary energy. The consequences are severe for human health from indoor and regional air pollution, acidification due to sulphur and nitrogen oxide emissions and climate change due to rapidly growing greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, there is a clear need to improve the efficiency and the environmental compatibility of fossil technologies, shift ...

  • Prospects for Renewable energy in Poland

    Poland is the only country in Central Europe rated in the top 25 countries for investment in renewable energy by Ernst & Young in their final 2007 report. Rated number 19, Poland has a diverse and growing renewable energy sector. The U.S. Commercial Service concluded in 2007: “Poland has very favorable technical and economical factors for renewable energy.  Poland has begun to experience ...


  • Source Separated MSW Composting in the US

    MUNICIPAL solid waste composting projects are being launched based on residential separation of the compostable stream from recyclables and trash - quite widespread in Europe and increasingly in Canada. One trend - typically in cities and suburban communities - is to add source separated residential organics to existing yard trimmings collection programs. Composting facilities permitted to ...
