Heating Plants Books

  • Planning of Geothermal District Heating Systems

    Geothermal waters, hot enough to provide direct heating, are available in many parts of the world. Some are exploited already but many more are only now being considered, as planners begin to recognize the environmental benefits of this unfamiliar energy resource. The relative economic benefits are more marginal, however, and a successful ...

  • A Biomass Future for the North American Great Plains

    The Great Plains of North America is a major global breadbasket but its agriculture is stressed by drought, heat spells, damaging winds, soil erosion and declining ground water resources. The great inter-annual variability in crop production and declining rural populations weaken an economy already highly dependent upon government support. The ...

  • Sustainable Heat Use of Biogas Plants

    This handbook was elaborated in the framework of the BiogasHeat project (IEE/11/025), supported by the European Commission through the Intelligent Energy for Europe (IEE) programme operated by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME). The authors would like to thank the European Commission for the support of the ...

  • Heat Transfer Enhancement of Heat Exchangers

    Heat transfer enhancement in single-phase and two-phase flow heat exchangers in important in such industrial applications as power generating plant, process and chemical industry, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration systems, and the cooling of electronic equipment.

  • Plant Respiration

    Respiration in plants, as in all living organisms, is essential to provide metabolic energy and carbon skeletons for growth and maintenance. As such, respiration is an essential component of a plant’s carbon budget. Depending on species and environmental conditions, it consumes 25-75% of all the carbohydrates produced in photosynthesis – even more ...
