  • The Application Of Pyrolysis Throughout The pyrolysis Process

    There are numerous materials that could be sent through a pyrolysis machine to make reusable products. As an example, if you utilize plastic, this will convert the plastic into charcoal, biofuels, and oil which can be used to lubricate different industrial machines. There are the ones that assist precisely what is called tyre. Here is the tyre that is certainly left over from the entire process ...

  • Life cycle assessment of fuel production for biomass from dry land afforestation

    Biomass has been focused as a fuel resource because of its huge abundance and carbon–neutral characteristics. Thus, we attempted to use tree biomass as the resource to automotive fuel. From the global warming point of view, the biomass energy production from large–scale plantation is required, however, the land use should not be changed from crop field or forest land. In the present paper, the ...

  • The UK lags behind EU counterparts to achieve 20% renewable energy target

    While some countries have almost hit their targets the UK still has a long way to achieve its 15% renewable energy target by 2020. The EU is more than halfway to reaching its 20% target of generating energy from renewables by 2020, according to new figures published today by Eurostat. The EU's 2009 directive on renewable energy set individual targets for all 27 member states, with a goal for the ...

  • US and international policies affecting liquid biofuels' expansion and profitability

    US and International Policies Affecting Liquid Biofuels' Expansion and Profitability. Biofuel expansion and profitability is driven by more than just biofuel policy. While direct policies such as subsidies and mandates are analysed, issues such as exchange rates, the blending wall, land use, and indirect greenhouse gas impacts, as well as petroleum prices, greatly affect biofuels' expansion and ...

  • The viability of the South African biofuels industrial strategy

    South Africa aims to replace 2% of its total liquid transportation fuels in the short term through a newly introduced biofuels industrial strategy. It is envisaged that this target is achievable without excessive economic support by utilising surplus agricultural capacity. The target is based on local production, both agricultural and manufacturing, to provide the benefits of employment, economic ...

  • Plants at the pump: Reviewing biofuels` impacts and policy recommendations

    As biofuels become a larger part of the social, economic, and environmental strategies of countries around the world, standards and regulations are needed to ensure that biofuels do in fact reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and promote sustainable development. In a world of rapidly rising GHG emissions and growing unease about imported oil, the appeal of renewable fuels is growing apace. ...

  • International context and lessons for B.C.

    Paul McFarlane presented a paper co-authored by W.E. Mabee and J.N. Saddler. The International Energy Agency (IEA) was founded in 1974 in response to energy concerns. IEA is a forum for energy cooperation among 26 member countries within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). It interacts with non-OECD countries to enhance supply security, give advice on energy policy ...

  • Biofuel production in a kraft pulp and paper Mill: Evaluation of the potential and profitability

    “Our team popped up” to address the main goal of greenhouse gas reduction through the production of biodiesel at kraft pulp and paper mills (KPPM), said Merja Strengell. Strengell summarized future challenges for integrated biorefineries and biofuel plants.Challenges include competition for raw material; process technology, which “doesn’t exist yet at the industrial scale”; the complex process ...

  • Biofuels and ecoagriculture: can bioenergy production enhance landscape-scale ecosystem conservation and rural livelihoods?

    Global development of the biofuel sector is proceeding rapidly, driven by national policy mandates, government subsidies, and profit opportunities for farmers, agribusiness and energy companies. To date, most investment in - and dialogue on - biofuels has focused on large-scale production of liquid transport fuels. A smaller set of efforts has explored the potential of biofuels to promote rural ...

  • Global bioenergy: problems and prospects

    This paper explores the future global potential for bioenergy. We use energy analysis, and more generally climate change effects, as our criteria for evaluation. Since widespread use of new bioenergy is probably decades away, our evaluation attempts to take into account likely future conditions. Previous research displays large variations in estimates of both energy ratio and technical potential. ...

  • Liquid fuels from woody biomass

    Although challenges like global climate change and oil depletion will increasingly drive fuel selection, increasing bioenergy use is only one of many possible responses to these problems. Present biomass liquid fuels are almost all derived from food crops, but their potential for further expansion is limited. Any major expansion of biomass liquid fuels will require use of the more abundant ...
