  • Highly efficient long-term storage of carrier-bound anammox biomass

    The anammox process is a potential alternative to the conventional nitrogen removal from wastewater. However, due to large generation times of anammox bacteria, the start-up of treatment reactors may be impeded. An efficient storage technique can handle this drawback and may be also suitable for seasonally operated treatment plants like in touristic areas. In the current study, several storage ...

  • Mountain of Mulch Grows at Biomass Plant

    Renegy Holdings may not be in the mulch business, but you’d never know it. Piled on the company’s property is 25,000 tons of high-quality mulch, and that’s only since the beginning of 2009. By the end of the year, that pile is expected to triple in size to around 75,000 tons, with equal amounts expected to be generated in each of the next couple of years. “We’re technically not in the mulch ...

  • Biomass Pellet Fuel and Its Advantages

    With the continuous deterioration of the people's living environment, global warming topic has become a concern of people from all walks of people. It has been very important to the development of new energy. At present, our main fuel is oil and coal, these are non-renewable materials, and you'll never have again when we use them up. Therefore, many countries are in the research of new energy, ...

  • Generating biomass fuel from disaster debris

    Natural disasters create massive amounts of vegetative debris, the majority of which is landfilled or open burned. These environmentally harmful practices are the norm partly out of necessity and convenience, with a focus on clearing material as quickly as possible after a disaster - versus finding outlets for the material including mulch, compost and biomass fuel. The biomass fuel market in ...

  • Optimal scheduling and operation of hybrid biomass/wind/PV energy system for rural areas

    In this paper, a hybrid energy system consisting of biomass, wind, solar photovoltaic (SPV) and battery, is proposed. The sources are operated to deliver energy at optimum efficiency. An optimisation model is developed to supply the available energy to the loads according to the priority. It is also proposed to maintain a fair level of energy storage to meet the peak load demand together with ...

  • Environmental impacts of integrating wind energy systems and supplemental energy generation and storage systems

    Wind energy systems offer a promising alternative energy source due to the environmental, economic, and social benefits and, as a result, have garnered support for development and implementation. One of the major drawbacks of wind energy, however, is its variability due to the stochastic nature of wind, thus, supplemental energy generation or storage technologies are required. In this study, a ...

  • Evaluating the energy and the carbon stored from tropical acacias: the first steps

    Because of their relevance as a source of energy as woodfuel, carbon storage capacity and their environmental characteristics in ecosystems, tropical leguminous trees are suitable for their management on plantations to produce biomass for energy or carbon sequestration for climate change mitigation. The main purpose of this paper is to present the results of a research project to develop a ...

  • A comercial store for the solar energy

    In this paper we will introduce our mathematical model for the solar energy sink, which can be used in general for the bio-energy processing. This model was based on the basic principle property of the heat capacity for the working mixture of the reservoir. Our modification here was to convert the storage energy into an energized air rotating any turbine, and generator to power electricity for ...


  • Case Study - Helmsley Open Air Pool

    Helmsley Open Air Pool is operated by a registered charity – the Feversham Memorial Trust – and opens from June to September each summer. The 1930s pool is 25m in length and 10m wide. The existing heating system comprised an oil boiler working in tandem with an electric heat exchanger. During the 2007 season the oil boiler broke down and was in need of replacement. To keep the pool ...

  • 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 ...

  • Italy: the next CSP hotspot?

    Italy could potentially have a booming CSP market, thanks to high DNI levels in the southern parts of the country and in the main islands of Sardinia and Sicily – where one of the newest CSP plants, the 50 MW Mazara, is being built. Feed-in-tariffs (FiTs) for CSP generation and industrial needs for process heat should make the market even more attractive. So why aren't developers flocking ...
