  • Biomass power generation in China

    “China is an agricultural country,” said Frank Miao. Farmers used to burn harvest waste, and the government decided to capture this energy by constructing a biomass power plant. At the end of 2006, the total biomass power generation capacity in China was approximately 2,200 megawatts (MW). The planned capacity of biomass power plants is 30,000 MW by 2020. Depending on the size of the plant, three ...

  • On limits for wind power generation

    The amount of wind power in the world increases fast. The background for this development is improved technology, decreased costs for the units and an increased concern of the environmental problems of competing technologies such as fossil fuels. For the future, it is now interesting to evaluate where the limits are for wind power generation, and which points are crucial. Since there is no power ...

  • 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 ...

  • The power generation sector's demand for fossil fuels: a quantitative assessment on the viability of carbon fees for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions

    The demand for fossil fuels by Ontario's conventional steam power generation sector is examined in this paper. It is hypothesised that the enactment of a carbon fee policy will induce a change in the relative prices of the three fuels used in this sector (coal, natural gas and heavy fuel oil). This would lead to substantial interfuel substitution and greenhouse gas abatement. The demand share ...

  • Computational study of a diagonal channel Magnetohydrodynamic power generation

    This paper studies the performance of a diagonal channel Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) power generation. This system includes a diagonal conducting wall MHD generator. As a model of channel, we use a scramjet-driven MHD generator where the MHD generator is directly integrated into the propulsion system. The channel specification is 59.28 cm in length. The working plasma for the power system is ...
