  • Advanced Application of Product Gases of Thermal Conversion of Biomass and Waste; Integration With the Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis

    The Netherlands Energy Research Foundation (ECN) is studying the advanced application of product gases from the thermal conversion of biomass and waste (B&W). The Fischer-Tropsch (FT) synthesis is the most promising as it affords diesel-like fuels of high quality and free from sulfur and aromatics. A slurry bubble FT reactor with an iron catalyst is the most suitable for B&W syngases. To optimize ...

  • The recent development of biomass energy in India: an overview

    This paper presents the current status and use of Biomass Technologies (BTs) in India. Different technology routes such as gasification, combustion and cogeneration are being actively developed to promote conversion of biomass materials such as agricultural, forestry and agro-industrial residues into electric power. The promotion of scientifically designed models of wood/biomass fired efficient ...

  • Russia turns to wooded heartlands for clean energy

    Russia’s heated conversations with oil company Shell reminded the world of its new role as one of the world’s major oil and gas producers – the debate centred around control of Sakhalin-2, the largest direct foreign investment project in Russia. It will create the world's biggest liquefied natural gas plant in the far east of Russia. Reports suggest that the Russian government wishes to take a ...

  • Bio-SNG featured in energy world in February 2011

    The use of bio-fuels for heating and lighting pre-dates the use of fossil fuels by thousands of years. However, unlike with fossil fuels, a systematic knowledge of the challenges posed by solid bio-fuels is not as widely understood, a fact attributable to the exponential acceleration of fossil fuel usage as global demand increased during the industrial revolution. In the wake of this, producers ...

  • Landfills Expand Energy Output

    HIGH fossil fuel prices and growing concern about global climate change are creating favorable conditions for landfill gas energy (LFGE) projects. Notably, endorsement of LFGE by Federal agencies and many states as a form of “green” power has enabled LFGE developers to earn premiums for electricity marketed through green power programs, and to benefit from expanded federal tax credits for ...
