  • Progress toward renewable fuel standard blending mandates

    The White House is reviewing EPA's proposed rules to set the 2014, 2015, and 2016 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) requirements. The proposals are not currently publicly available, but EPA has committed to propose them by June 1, 2015, and to promulgate the 2014 and 2015 rules by November 30, 2015. EPA is required by law to issue the following year's RFS requirements by November 30 ...

  • Bioenergy Outlook: Defending the renewable fuels standard

    Although major advances in climate change and renewable energy policies are unlikely this year, there is still much that can and must be done. It is true that there are major obstacles to progress in Washington DC, but further repeating the discouraging prognosis will not be helpful. Instead, Bioenergy Outlook — BioCycle’s new bioenergy column — will, in this and occasional ...

  • Perfect products for fuel consumption

    In present time fuel customers get offered a row of perfect products for fuel consumption enhancement, processes of combustion, both in petrol engines for cars, and to the diesel. All additives to petroleum are harmless to the car and serve as protection against the low-quality fuel which has got to a tank and will increase saving. They will secure and will burn any petroleum and if fuel is a ...

  • Maintaining biodiesel quality standards

    A problem that is sometimes encountered with biodiesel blends is inaccurate blend ratios. This article describes a quick analytical method to assess blend ratios and ensure fuel performance. According to a study1 done by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the chief problem found with biodiesel blends was inaccurate blend ratios. Retail customers and fleet managers do not typically worry ...

  • Fuel Cell Voltage Monitoring Considerations

    Knowing what’s happening inside a fuel cell is a critical function, especially as fuel cells are continuing to be developed. One important aspect of this is to measure the voltageof each cell in a stack. Although this may sound trivial, it can be more complex and more expensive than it may at first appear due to high voltages, high channel counts,communication types, etc. There ...

  • New Regulations for Biomass and Other Alternatative Fuels

    EPA completed new rules that changed the way they look at "nontraditional" fuels. Using these alternative fuels to generate energy makes a facility subject to emission limits and rules regulation boilers. In December U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) completed new rules that changed the way they look at'nontraditional" fuels. Materials that can meet the newly revised standards are ...

  • 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 ...

  • Adapting TPV for Use in a Standard Home Heating Furnace

    Abstract, A novel TPV configuration will be presented that can fit into a standard home furnace cabinet. This system incorporates an externally faceted glass cylinder with a dichroic filter deposited on its outer surface and a GaSb IR cell array bonded to the outer surface on top of the filter. This cylindrical array is then surrounded with an envelope containing a low boiling point liquid for ...

  • Can solar sources meet Australia's electricity and liquid fuel demand?

    It is commonly assumed that because of its relatively high solar energy incidence Australia will be able to meet its energy demand from solar sources. However, an examination of evidence on existing and probable future efficiencies and costs indicates that it will not be possible to derive sufficient electricity or liquid fuels to sustain the present high per capita rates of consumption from ...

  • Can a gas engine use diesel fuel with less pollution?

    Anyone concerned with rising oil prices and pollution from fossil fuel might like to know about a new technology, which addresses both problems. Its application will put an end to the days of sooty smoke seen from accelerating diesel trucks and buses. The ...


  • Design and thermal modeling of a portable fuel fired cylindrical TPV Battery Replacement

    ABSTRACT: A novel portable fliel fired cylindrical themiophotovoltaic batteiy charger is described. It uses an array of GaSb TPV cells along with a novel Omega recuperator design and a novel IR emitter design. Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) calculations are presented for this TPV cylinder design showing the potential for an overall fuel to electricity conversion efficiency of 10.9%. The ...

  • Biodiesel production from high FFA crude rice bran oil and investigation on its properties as CI engine fuel

    This study is an attempt to convert high free fatty acid (FFA) crude rice bran oil (CRBO) into biodiesel and to evaluate whether the biodiesel obtained meets the biodiesel quality standards prescribed by ASTM D 6751-07b. CRBO was subjected to a two-step transesterification process using HCl and NaOH as acid and base catalyst respectively with a 15% v/v of methanol to oil ratio. This process ...

  • Diesel economy is the benefit for the future

    Diesel fuel is a liquid product which is used as fuel in the diesel engine. It is received by oil distillation from kerosene and gas-oil fractions. It represents quite viscous and difficult evaporated combustible liquid. Generally it consists of carbons, some percentage of hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur and nitrogen. Such type of fuels is intended for high-speed diesel and gas-turbine engines of land ...
