  • Solar thermal power coming to a boil

    After emerging in 2006 from 15 years of hibernation, the solar thermal power industry experienced a surge in 2007, with 100 megawatts of new capacity coming online worldwide. During the 1990s, cheap fossil fuels, combined with a loss of state and federal incentives, put a damper on solar thermal power development. However, recent increases in energy prices, escalating concerns about global ...

  • QUADRANT SR Thermal Oxidizer & the chemical industry - Case study

    Chemical processing facilities across the country are facing ever tightening restrictions for volatile organic compound (VOC) and hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions. These emissions can be generated from such points as process vents, storage tanks, fugitive releases, among others…. To achieve compliance with Clean Air Act Amendments, facilities may have to apply maximum achievable ...

  • Use of biogas for cogeneration of heat and electricity for local application: performance evaluation of an engine power generator and a sludge thermal dryer

    A small unit of cogeneration of energy and heat was tested at the Centre for Research and Training on Sanitation UFMG/COPASA – CePTS, located at the Arrudas Sewage Treatment Plant, in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The unit consisted of an engine power generator adapted to run on biogas, a thermal dryer prototype and other peripherals (compressor, biogas storage tank, air blower, ...

  • Saving Renewable Energy for a Rainy Day

    Despite advances in renewable energy technologies, one of the largest hurdles in their widespread adoption has been their intermittent reliability. Energy is only useful if it is available as the grid demands it, which is why concerns about carbon emissions are overridden in favor of the more dependable oil, coal and gas for baseload power. In order for renewable sources such as wind and solar ...
