  • `Standards are desperately needed for plastic and pesticide contamination in soil´

    In addition to plastic in the oceans, plastic contamination in arable land throughout Europe and other parts of the world is a growing problem. No standards exist for these types of soil pollutants, nor for pesticide residues or their degradation products. For this reason, Professor Violette Geissen is calling for standards to be implemented. On 15 June, Geissen will deliver her inaugural address ...

  • Solar hot water system

    Solar hot water systems (e.g. residential) do not produce steam, for example. Thus, solar hot water systems cannot push a steam turbine and will not generate electrical power. Solar hot water systems are used for heating and hot water requirements, not electrical power. If this is offsetting electrical hot water or electrical heat, then these are more like 'negawatts' than Terawatts. Steam ...


  • Solar water cost and feasibility of solar water heating system

    The present research work has been carried out on 1,000 litre installed capacity solar water heating system, at Jijau Hostel, Dr Panjabrao Deshmukh Agricultural University (PDKV), Akola, Maharashtra, India. The main objectives were to evaluate various costs and benefits involved in the solar water production. The costs of hot water production per litre with comparison to electrical energy were ...

  • CPV solar power system

    There are relatively few CPV applications still pursuing Si cells. The idea was somewhat "hot", no pun intended, when there was a silicon shortage going on, but silicon prices have dropped as new capacity has come online and the only successful CPV concepts being marketed which I know of are based on triple junction Ge/GaAs/InGaP or similar cells. These are also rather heat sensitive, and the two ...


  • Water distillation by solar energy-a-review

    In this paper an attempt has been made to review in brief, work on solar distillation, its present status in the world today and its future perspective. This paper covers a large variety of systems used to convert saline water into fresh water suitable for human use. Finally, some general guidelines are discussed for selection of desalination systems and the parameters that need to be ...

  • The Effectiveness of Combined heat and Power Solar Water Heating Systems

    Abstract: Solar water heating in residential and commercial buildings is often provided by integrating a large number of domestic thermosyphon solar water heaters. The economic effectiveness of solar Domestic hot water heating systems depends mainly on its types and configurations. Thereupon in this paper, simulation models have been presented for the modeling of thermal and electrical ...


  • Study of solar photo-Fenton system applied to removal of phenol from water

    This study evaluated the use of a Fenton's reaction in a falling film solar reactor (FFR), as a possible advanced oxidation process for the mineralization of the organic compound phenol in water. Preliminary tests were carried out to evaluate phenol degradation by photolysis and to select the optimal residence time in which to carry out the process using a solar photo-Fenton system. The ...

  • In the World: Small Mexican village produces clean water with solar-powered system

    MIT-developed system runs autonomously, producing 1,000 liters per day. In a small village deep in the jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula — a day’s drive from any source of clean, drinkable water — researchers from MIT are testing a system that purifies water with the help of the sun. The relatively inexpensive system consists of several modest photovoltaic panels, a large ...

  • Tips for Solarization

    1-      In order to make plain use of sun energy during the application of solarisation, the cover should be cleaned if there is any dust over it. 2-      The area of application that will be treated should be processed up to 30-40 cm depth at first, the surface of ground should be balanced and rocks should be taken out. ...

  • On rooftops worldwide, a solar water heating revolution

    The harnessing of solar energy is expanding on every front as concerns about climate change and energy security escalate, as government incentives for harnessing solar energy expand, and as these costs decline while those of fossil fuels rise. One solar technology that is really beginning to take off is the use of solar thermal collectors to convert sunlight into heat that can be used to warm ...

  • Mono solar water filtration system provides safe drinking water to the st francis hospital

    Background The St Francis Nyenga Hospital is located in Nyenga, Uganda, close to the town of Jinja where the Nile River makes its long journey to Egypt from Lake Victoria. The Sisters of St. Francis have operated the hospital since its foundation in 1932. St Francis Hospital offers medical services free of charge to the poor and needy through their interactive community health and ...

  • Solar Thermal System: Benefits Vs Problems?

    Solar thermal systems are the latest green renewable technology that derives energy from the sun to produce heat. This heat is then transferred to warm water for utilization or regulates temperatures within households, offices and even industries. Varying qualities of equipment results in variation of performance in terms of efficiency and quantity of energy being wasted depending upon quality. ...

  • What can you achieve with a solar system and battery?

    People often ask us about energy self-sufficiency. Just how hard is it to get to that point where you no longer have to pay a large corporation each time you turn on the kettle? This will depend on your usage patterns but for most people, a mix of renewable systems is the best option. We’ve taken a look at Gabriel’s home renewable systems as an example. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Gabriel ...
