Calciner firing of refuse derived fuels
Alternative or refuse derived fuels (RDF) are mainly fired in kiln burners, preheater or calciner kilns. Of the greatest importance in this regard is homogenous fuel quality consisting of two-dimensional parts. Alternative fuel for the kiln burner has to be free of disruptive fractions (e.g. metals, stones, glass), which might cause problems in the feeding equipment or the burner itself.Alternative fuel for the main burner has to possess the following dimensions: Kiln burner fuel characteristics Grain size:...
DOT to support electric vehicles with national alternate fuel network
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), hoping to spur the electrification of U.S. transportation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions on the highways, says it has designated 55 routes that will act as a national “alternative fuel” network, enabling drivers to fuel vehicles without traditional gas and diesel-powered engines. The network will alert drivers to refueling opportunities for alternative fuel vehicles, including electric, hydrogen, propane, and natural gas. Those corridors designated...
U.S. Federal Highway Administration Unveils National Alternative Fuel and Electric Charging Network
November 7, 2016 -- The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) announced 55 routes that will serve as the basis for a national network of "alternative fuel" corridors spanning 35 states. Though the network is nearly 85,000 miles long, more miles will be added in the future to accommodate electric, hydrogen, propane and natural gas vehicles as additional fueling and charging stations are built. "Alternative fuels and electric vehicles will play an integral part in the future of...
DOE Hosts Alternative Aviation Fuels Workshop, New LUC Emissions Research Discussed
