  • What is energy recovery?

    Processes like incineration and anaerobic digestion not only provide sources of energy, but they also reduce waste volume The term “energy recovery” often is applied only to a narrow number of methods for converting wastes into energy, when in fact it applies to a broad range of technologies used to create heat, electricity, or fuel. Energy recovery gives ...

  • Flooring manufacturer reduces operating costs with a customized heat recovery system - Case Study

    Rising energy costs effect your bottom line. You don’t have to be a CFO to understand that energy costs are high and show little sign of relief these days. To combat the rising cost of natural gas, many companies that operate air pollution control systems are beginning to look at methods that economically recover heat for use somewhere else in their manufacturing operations. One leading ...

  • Energy recovery in the water industry using micro-hydropower: an opportunity to improve sustainability

    The water industry as a whole consumes a considerable amount of energy in the treatment and distribution of water and wastewater. Like all sectors of society today, the industry is focusing efforts on reducing its CO2 emissions and improving the sustainability of its systems and practices. One way of achieving this is through the use of micro-hydropower (MHP) installations in water ...

  • The Entropy Generation Minimisation based on the Revised Entropy Generation Number

    In the present work, an improved Entropy Generation Minimisation (EGM) approach aiming at minimising the revised entropy generation number which is the non-dimensionalised entropy by the ratio of heat flow to the input temperature of the cold fluid is developed for a plate-fin heat exchanger design with multiple design variables with the help of genetic algorithm. It is found that the approach ...

  • Regenerative snubber for UPS inverter

    An uninterrupted power supply (UPS) is used to provide electrical power to a load during an emergency situation in which the main utility power is not available. UPS topologies are well known. The inverter plays the most important role as an element in the UPS system. Usually, pulse width modulated inverters with voltage control and waveform shaping are used in UPS. This paper proposes an ...

  • Tom Devlin

    Aretha Franklin sang about it, everyone wants it and we often give it to others — it’s respect, that seven-letter word that gets thrown around in countless circumstances. For Tom Devlin, it’s a part of his upbringing that has woven its way into his professional philosophy. “My parents raised me with the concept that I was neither better nor inferior to anyone,and that everyone was worthy of my ...

  • Assessing Feasibility of Direct Drive Technology for Energy Recovery from Digester Biogas

    ABSTRACTThe Regional Municipality of Waterloo completed a study, with support from Environment Canada, to evaluate the feasibility of using direct drive technology to recover energy from digester biogas. The study identified that a 150 HP engine, operating at 54 % load, could be supported by the estimated gas production of 1560 m3/d with 63 % methane by volume. ...

  • Efficiency analysis of coal-based thermal power generation in India during post-reform era

    Coal-based thermal power stations are the leaders in electricity generation in India. This study employs the stochastic frontier production function methodology for panel data to measure the technical efficiency (TE) of coal-based thermal power plants in India during 1994-1995 to 2001-2002. Efficiency varies widely across plants and regions, while the TE is time-invariant. The average TE is ...
