  • Fuel Quality Monitoring System in Indonesia: case study on gasoline quality improvement

    This paper advocates periodical monitoring of fuel quality for conformation to quality standards. The Fuel Quality Monitoring System (FQMS) aims to phase out off-specification fuel from the market by a government initiative. The FQMS in developing countries has rather weak management because the insufficient analytical facilities and unskilled human resources result in inadequate monitoring by ...

  • Prediction of energy consumption of passenger transportation and GHG emissions in Jordan

    In this paper, the structure of the Jordanian transport sector is analysed with focus on passenger cars, which represent 65% of total vehicles and responsible for almost all of the national gasoline fuel demand. In order to achieve the objectives of this study, an empirical model is developed based on multivariate linear regression analysis to identify key drivers that influence gasoline ...

  • Simplified biofuels measurements with portable mid infrared analyzers

    Product quality begins at the production facility and extends to consumer filling station. Some process control or quality verification analyses can be done with quick and simple verification tests while others require more complete tests according to the ASTM or EN approved methods. Many crucial measurements can be performed by mid-infrared (IR) analysis. These measurements include free fatty ...

  • Household energy consumption in Switzerland

    Households consume more energy embodied in goods and services than they consume with energy carriers. Thus, energy assessments need to address both direct consumption and indirect consumption via commodities. This paper first presents a conceptual framework for describing and analysing the direct and indirect energy use of households. The framework is based on material flux analysis and ...

  • Case study - Keeping ethanol production green

    OVERVIEW Originally published in Pollution Engineering Magazine. In an effort to reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels, there has been a major push towards alternatives. Ethanol has been at the forefront of this movement because it reduces greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles and its production has a positive net energy balance. The homegrown fuel also ...
