  • Evaluation of Tire Derived Rubber Particles for Biofiltration Media

    ABSTRACTCurrently, on average, one tire is discarded in the U.S. for every man woman and child every year. While the reuse market for used tires has increased over the years to approximately 75%, there are still an estimated 2-3 billion used tires stockpiled in the U.S. Finding economical and sustainable end uses for this tire material is an ongoing challenge to environmental engineers and ...

  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • Caltech working to solve the world`s energy problems with the help of inVia

    Fossil fuels are the world's main fuel source for transportation, heating and generating electricity. As a by-product, high levels of CO2 are released into the atmosphere. With the drive for sustainable energy production, a method that generates easily-stored fuel from sunlight—and absorbs CO2—is a very attractive proposition. The California Institute of Technology ...

  • Waste Fuel Case History

    The Customer The company engages in the design, manufacture, and sale of machinery for decomposing petroleum-based materials. The company uses microwave technology for recovering hydrocarbons and fossil fuels from sources, such as tires, oil shale, capped wells, coal, automotive shredded residue, municipal solid waste, shale deposits, and waste oil streams. The ...

  • EU fuel quality monitoring — 2014

    Each year, under the requirements of the European Union (EU) Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) (1), EU Member States must report various types of information relating to the quality of petrol and diesel fuels sold in their territories. More specifically, Member States must sample fuels each year and analyse their technical characteristics to ensure that they are consistent with the requirements of the ...

  • Refinery remediation: fuel recovery and recycling

    Introduction The site is a former refinery that occupied approximately 64 acres of land in West Texas. Refinery operations produced all grades of gasoline, tractor fuels, diesel, distillate products, and fuel oils and operated between 1939 and 1954. As a result of past waste management practices, releases to soils and ultimately ground water occurred, resulting in the formation of a ...

  • Shredding tires is prosperous business

    Is your yard filled with piles of tires? And you do not know what do with them? Many recycling companies and landfills are struggling with used tires. Tires are among the largest and most problematic sources of waste, due to their shape and the large volume they require for storage.  However, tires are one of the most re-used waste ...

  • Production of synthetic gasoline and diesel fuels by alternative processes using natural gas, coal and biomass: process simulation and economic analysis

    The problem of producing synthetic liquid fuels by alternative routes is addressed. Industrial processes known as Gas To Liquid (GTL), Coal To Liquid (CTL) and Biomass To Liquid (BTL) are considered: they use natural gas, coal and biomass as feedstocks, respectively. By means of process simulation, it is shown that the fuel produced on a weight basis per unit of feedstock (natural gas, coal and ...

  • Sample preparation for the analysis of secondary fuel in cement plants

    Secondary fuel can be a very inhomogeneous sample, containing all types of polymers, paper, wood and low fractions of metal. Also recycled wood or parts of automobile tires might be used as secondary fuel. Before using it as fuel in the production of cement, several chemical analyses are necessary as quality control. Cement is made by heating limestone (calcium carbonate), with small quantities ...

  • Oil shale is not a viable fuel source - Study

    While many are celebrating the end of the 'Peak Oil' concerns because of abundent new sources of oil in shale deposits, a true accounting for all economic and environmental costs to exploit this energy source suggests it may not be a viable proposition at all. Scientists' best estimates of the Energy Return on Investment (EROI) of oil shale suggest it is very inefficient compared to conventional ...
