  • Plasma resource recovery technology –converting waste to energy and valuable products

    Abstract Plasma Resource Recovery (PRR) is a revolutionary technology that can treat virtually any type of waste by combining gasification with vitrification. Vitrification produces inert slag that can be used as a construction material. Gasification produces a fuel gas containing carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2), used for cogeneration of electricity and steam. The plasma fired ...

  • Technical and economic analyses of a hydrogen-fed gas turbine with steam injection and co-generation

    Enel has been working on a hydrogen programme dealing with both hydrogen production and uses. The first phase deals with a hydrogen-fed, gas turbine-based co-generative cycle, in which steam injection in the gas turbine itself is adopted in order to couple high process efficiencies with very low nitrous oxide emissions. This paper presents the main results of the co-generative cycle thermodynamic ...

  • What does the US/China agreement mean for efficiency?

    The energy efficiency market has a gawky quality. It is not exactly one market but a conglomeration of various industries as diverse as appliance manufacturers, energy auditors, smart meter software designers and cogeneration developers. They are unified only in their ability to save energy. All arms and legs as it may appear, the efficiency market seems ready to shoot to a new level of maturity. ...

  • Why Size Really Does Matter when specifying CHP

    Discover the key points that CHP consultants need to consider in order to correctly size CHP units for optimum energy savings. For CHP consultants and others involved in specifying cogeneration, it is essential that the CHP unit is correctly sized – in fact, it is ...

  • Trends in biosolids handling technologies: economics and environmental factors

    Changes in activated sludge technology, with a much greater focus on nutrient removal instead of removal of organics, together with relatively long sludge mean that the primary sludge stream has been lost, and the sludge produced is less degradable. At the same time with the growing importance of sustainable solutions, beneficial agricultural use is being increasingly used. This changes quality ...

  • Hesse is well on its way to becoming `Model for regenerative Energies`

    Hesse has made it a goal to guarantee a long-term secure and inexpensive energy supply for economy and consumers that meets the demands of environment and climate protection. For that purpose, Hesse wants to raise its proportion of renewable energies in its energy consumption to 15 percent. The new Renewable-Energies-Law (Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz: EEG) as well as the ...

  • Charting economic climate

    The economic climate affects our day-to-day lives. Work activities are intricately interconnected with social well-being which in turn effects family harmony and trickles on down to impact personal wherewithal. Still, 'climate' is what it is. There is nothing any of us alone can do about it. At the same time, however, how we think about it tends to shift the reality we experience day to day. ...
