  • Study of available exhaust gas heat recovery technologies for HD diesel engine applications

    Diesel engines reject a considerable amount of energy to the ambience through the exhaust gas. Significant reduction of engine brake-specific fuel consumption (bsfc) could be attained by recovering a significant part of exhaust gas heat. Various techniques have been proposed in the past to recover exhaust energy: mechanical, electrical turbocompounding and Rankine Bottoming Cycles. In the present ...

  • Digital Technology to Transform Oil, Gas Hiring Practices

    The oil and gas industry’s effort to adopt digital technology not only will impact its daily operations, but its hiring needs as well. The oil and gas industry must pursue digital technology for two reasons: an aging workforce and increased focus on safety, said Mike Weast, IT regional vice president with professional staffing firm Addison Group, in a statement to Rigzone. As the majority ...

  • Externalities in North–South technology transfer: the case of CNG engines in Iran

    This contribution focuses on illuminating the challenges and difficulties of North–South technology transfer. The central message of this paper is that North–South technology transfer is not simply a contract between two transacting firms and does not depend only on intra–firm and inter–firm factors. The process may also be influenced by a number of external factors, beyond the control or power ...

  • 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 ...


  • Are GAS-FIRED Burner Technologies Really The Best Choice for ISTR Cleanups?

    Its an exciting time. In-Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) shows great promise and has proven to be an extremely effective method for cleaning a wide range of Contaminants of Concern (COC’s) at contaminated sites. Most recently, gas-fired soil heating technologies are entering the market with promises of much cheaper natural gas heating, faster setup and heating times, less heaters required ...

  • Technology of Computational Fluid Dynamics in space engines and solar-gravity draught power plants

    Non-isentropic discontinuous, unsteady flows with energy addition or extraction, during ignition of solid propellant rocket motors or tall solar towers heating transients are approached through a wave front method, initially developed by Zannetti for isentropic flows in aerodynamics. Its application in discontinuous flows with zones of different behaviour and energy extraction proves highly ...

  • Evaluating technologies in automobile markets

    A new approach has been developed for the comprehensive comparison of competing technologies. It combines two well-established tools: life-cycle assessment (LCA) and energy-engineering models (EEM). The approach has been applied to evaluate different car powertrains and fuels. The results show how the ranking of different technologies depends on assumptions and the value system of the ...

  • SGBI opinion article: shale gas

    Government perceives electric vehicles to be a panacea that will solve problems surrounding air quality and CO2 emissions simultaneously. The EV has two main selling points: reduced CO2 emissions and high efficiency. However, these are only valid at a superficial level and the argument disintegrates under any level of scrutiny. In terms of CO2 emissions, EVs replace ‘average’ cars to ...

  • Performance analysis of a single cylinder DI diesel engine using different biodiesel

    Biodiesel produced from cottonseed oil is quite a promising alternative fuel for diesel engines. Use of vegetable oils in diesel engines leads to slightly inferior performance and higher smoke emissions due to their high viscosity and carbon residue. But the performance of vegetable oils can be improved by modifying them through the transesterification process. The research work discusses the ...

  • Biomethane enters the gas grid article for energy world

    The Carbon Plan, published in 2011, aims to reduce UK carbon emissions by a quarter from 1990 levels. With the current policies in place, the UK is on target to reduce emissions by over a third by 2020 and with the introduction of new technologies this should increase to an 80% reduction by 2050. However, currently around half the UK’s carbon emissions result from heat related processes and ...
