  • Oil Recycling - Case Study

    The problem: Waste oil recycling contributes very much to climate protection through (CO2) energy saving. Compared to the production of base oil the re-refining of waste oil uses 34 % less resources. In the sixties the German government was subsidising the re-refining of waste oil. Because of that the use of waste oil as a fuel was neglected. The used oil re-refining is the ...

  • Impact of feeding flaxseed oil on delaying the development of osteoporosis in ovariectomised diabetic rats

    This work is aimed to study the effect of diabetes on bone health and to evaluate the impact of feeding flaxseed oil on delaying osteoporosis. About 70 female albino rats were included; 30 were ovariectomised (ovx). Experimental diabetes was induced. Rats were classified in groups as control, sham, diabetic, diabetic received flaxseed oil in the diet, ovx, ovx-diabetic and ovx-diabetic received ...

  • Hurricane HR Cyclones to capture fine fly ash particulate enabling the use of wood waste fired thermal oil heater for Sonae Indústria - Case Study

    The company was forced to use a natural gas fired hot gas generator for drying fibre despite having the necessary amount of thermal energy available in the exhaust stream of a wood waste fired thermal oil heater. The problem of using the biomass thermal oil heater laid on the emission of fine burnt and unburnt particulate which were carried over with the dried fibre and finally deposited on the ...

  • Selected results of the 1996 IEW Poll of energy projections

    Since 1981, the International Energy Workshop (IEW) has been polling projections of energy demand and supply. In addition to collecting scenario data on energy consumption, production and trade, the IEW Poll includes projections of GDP and the international oil price. In 1994, energy-related carbon emissions have been added. IEW Poll results are published annually. According to the 1996 IEW Poll ...

  • Monitoring Hydroelectric Dam Sumps - Case study

    The Situation Hydroelectric dams produce electric power by harnessing the force of the water flowing through the dam. There are numerous sources for oil spillage: The hydroelectric turbines are lubricated by lubrication oils. The very large water control valves are normally hydraulic powered and are lubricated with various greases and oils. Vehicles ...

  • Dreyer & Bosse deliver renewable energy CHP project to Sofia in Bulgaria

    The Sofia council decided to invest in renewable energy to make use of the many tons of biowaste (vegetative material),  20,000 tons per annum, from the waste removal collections that take place daily in Sofia and surrounding area. To make this possible it was decided to go for wet fermentation where the substrate or raw material ferments and the biogas is collected. After three weeks the ...

  • How is biodiesel produced?

    This article is the first in a series that will take a close look at alternative fuels production and source materials. Over the next several months, we will cover natural gas, propane, ethanol, hydrogen, and fuel cells. This month, we will focus on biodiesel.

  • Up in Smoke – How the climate and our health suffer from flaring

    It’s like burning banknotes. Latest statistics from the World Bank (WB) indicate that the amount of gas flared each year is enough energy to supply electricity to several small countries or many millions of households. The flaring of 140 billion cubic metres (bcm) a year releases large quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere – and that is not only bad news for the climate, ...
