Methane Generation from Human, Animal, and Agricultural Wastes By National Academy of Sciences et al.
Paperback: $35.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
This report is devoted to the development of an alternative energy re-source suitable for individual or village use in a rural environment. An ideal resource is one that is local in origin and can... More > produce energy useful for this purpose depending only on local materials and labor. Unlike present rural energy generation (primarily heat from burning), an ideal system should involve a fuel that can be utilized for different kinds of work. The ideal fuel resource should be easily accumulated and stored to provide energy for heating, lighting, small-scale electric power generation, and power for engines as needed. Moreover, where possible, it should also provide more energy than is now obtained from the same materials. Rural areas usually have large supplies of material—crop residues and animal wastes- theoretically suitable for conversion into a usable source of energy. The process that appears to hold the greatest immediate potential for utilization of these materials as sources of fuel is anaerobic fermentation.< Less
Small-Scale Cogeneration Handbook, 3rd edition By Bernard F. Kolanowski
eBook (ePub): $99.99
As the technologies for small-scale cogeneration have advanced over the last two decades, an increasing number of commercial, institutional, governmental and industrial energy users are seeing the... More > advantages offered by these highly efficient systems. Cogeneration can now turn up to 90% of the fuel burned into usable energy — compared to just 52% of the fuel typically burned in the local power plant and in a separate existing hot water heating system. Now fully updated, this comprehensive, best selling reference provides a wealth of information to assist you in evaluating the feasibility and potential benefits of cogeneration for your facility. The third edition includes a new chapter on the advent of the fuel cell in cogeneration plus the all the latest cogeneration technologies. Covered in detail are regulatory developments and their impact, permitting requirements, operation and maintenance, financing, technology basics, micro turbines, absorption chillers, distributed generation, and case histories.< Less
