  • Why Choose a Gas Power Washer?

    While buying a power washing system, many people wonder if they should invest in a gas pressure washer or not. All pressure washing systems have their own unique set of benefits, and gas power washing machines are no exception. For indoor cleaning tasks, electrical pressure washing systems are generally used. This is because they do not release any exhaust fumes, and are relatively less noisy. ...

  • Full-energy-chain greenhouse-gas emissions: a comparison between nuclear power, hydropower, solar power and wind power

    Fair comparison of the climate impacts from different energy sources can be made only by accounting for the emissions of all relevant greenhouse gases (GHGs) from the full energy chain (FENCH) of the energy sources. FENCH-GHG emission factors of most of the non-fossil fuel energies are lower than those of the fossil fuels that are in the range of 500-1200 g CO2/kW h(e). The improvement ...

  • Energy and exergy analysis of reverse Brayton refrigerator for Gas Turbine power boosting

    In this study the use of Reverse Brayton cycle to boost up the power of gas turbine power plants operating in hot humid ambiance is analysed by the energy and exergy methods. The gas turbine inlet temperature is reduced by mixing the chilled air from Brayton refrigeration cycle and the main intake air stream reaching low intake temperatures. In this paper the effect of irreversibilities in the ...

  • Power generated from methane gas in disused mines in England

    Type     HOFGAS®-IPM/C 2500 Performance     2’500 Nm³/h / 520mbar dP Location     England (GB) Situation Mine gas is released when coal is extracted. This gas is sourced not only from working coal mines but also from those that were closed down long ago. Because large quantities of coal remain in the mine after it has ...

  • Co-production of synthesis gas and power by integration of Partial Oxidation reactor, gas turbine and air separation unit

    A new synthesis gas production process based on partial oxidation (POX) of natural gas is investigated. Synthesis gas and mechanical power are generated in a plant that integrates a POX reactor, a synthesis gas turbine and an air separation unit. The synthesis gas is expanded in the turbine which runs the air separation unit. By means of an exergy analysis, it is shown that the synthesis gas ...

  • Preliminary research of health and environmental impacts and greenhouse gas emission from coal-fired power and nuclear power chains in China

    The present paper treats health, environmental impacts and greenhouse gas emission resulting from both the coal-fired power chain and nuclear power chain in China. The nuclear power chain resulted in adverse health impacts 3-4 orders of magnitude lower than those from the coal-fired power chain, also radiological emissions were 1-2 orders of magnitude lower. Estimated greenhouse gas emission ...

  • The future of nuclear power worldwide

    Energy production from fossil fuels, mainly natural gas and coal, contributes significantly to global warming through large-scale greenhouse gas emissions, mainly of hundreds of billions of tonnes of carbon in the form of carbon dioxide. At least for the next few decades, one of the realistic options for reducing carbon dioxide emissions from energy production could be the increasing use of ...

  • Floating nuclear power plants

    Nuclear energy, in comparison with other modes of energy generation such as hydro, thermal and non-conventional sources, has high energy density with little environmental pollution or greenhouse gas emissions. The methodologies to check the problems of nuclear radiation hazards and waste associated with this technology are continuously being developed towards perfection. The nuclear plants are ...

  • U.S. Nuclear Power in Decline

    Nuclear power generation in the United States is falling. After increasing rapidly since the 1970s, electricity generation at U.S. nuclear plants began to grow more slowly in the early 2000s. It then plateaued between 2007 and 2010—before falling more than 4 percent over the last two years. Projections for 2013 show a further 1 percent drop. With reactors retiring early and proposed ...

  • The Future Cost of Wind Power

    Chapter 1 The economics of wind power Wind power is capital intensive with most of the investment required upfront. The largest capital cost component is the turbine itself which can account for between 40% and 80% of the total capital cost of an onshore wind installation. Costs offshore are higher because of the more expensive operating environment and the greater difficulty establishing ...


  • Does shale gas mean cheap gas?

    What is the true impact of shale gas extraction in the UK? Swathes of the British population are against fracking (the process of releasing natural gas trapped within shale rock formations) due to its perceived visual impact and environmental concerns. Two out of three of the main political parties apparently support further exploration and ...

  • Concentrating Solar Power

    Technology Overview   By collecting solar energy during daylight hours and storing it in hot molten salt, concentrating solar power technologies like power towers give utilities an alternative method for meeting peak loads. (Warren Gretz)  Concentrating solar power plants produce electric power by converting the sun’s energy into high-temperature heat using ...

  • A real options approach to investing in the first nuclear power plant under cost uncertainty: comparison with natural gas power plant for the Tunisian case

    This paper uses a real options approach to present a method for evaluating the first Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) investment in Tunisia in 2020. The evaluating model integrates the value of real options: option to wait in the standard discount cash flow analysis. According to the IAEA (2007), starting the first stage of a nuclear power programme makes it possible to construct the first NPP in second ...
