he 15 page e-book describes the basics around methane or by a gas production and moves on to more detailed descriptions batch digesters for large reduction schemes. The book starts by describing the... More > basic properties of methane or biogas. This gas can be made using simple apparatus and a process know as anaerobic digestion. Anaerobic digestion is one of the most common biological procedures in nature, as the name implies, it means to carry or breakdown in the absence of air. Once you know the principles of this process it is possible to make biogas in small or large quantities from a variety of waste materials. The e-book describes making an anaerobic digester using an oil drum and a rubber inner tube as the gas storage vessel aswell as a larger continuous digester. The e-book also contains diagrams list of materials and websites are further reading.< Less

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

Shale Gas: The Promise and the Peril By Vikram Rao
Paperback: $13.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
Shale gas has the potential to transform the U.S. energy-based economy in the electricity, transportation, and chemical sectors. U.S. success can be expected to translate to Europe and other parts of... More > the world. Shale gas production is uniquely enabled by hydraulic fracturing, a technique that has come under heavy scrutiny for its potential to cause environmental damage. In this book, Vikram Rao addresses the issues surrounding shale gas in a balanced fashion. The book is intended to inform both sides of the fracturing debate, where currently rhetoric is overtaking understanding. Tailored for a nontechnical audience—with technical chemistry and geology information couched in sidebars—the book culminates in suggestions for research and guidance for policy making.< Less

Nature’s caprice strikes twice, rocking an Appalachian coal mining town. In Farmington, West Virginia, a methane explosion blows the top off of a mountain, killing 78 miners. Subsequently,... More > Congress creates the Miners Enforcement Safety Agency (MESA) to establish a standard of safety in the country’s mines. Immediately, a nationwide call goes out for veteran miners to police the mines. In the fiercely-independent Appalachian coalfields in the poorest locale in America--the same fields that drove out the United Mine Workers Local--recruiting inspectors is next to impossible, finding ones who will stand up to the mines’ lawbreakers is impossible. The impossible appears when AB Stahill, an ex-miner searching for the redemption and determined to find retribution for the death of his father and the derangement of his boyhood friend, uses MESA to give him the means to pursue his end.< Less
