  • Catalysts for Alcohol-Fuelled Direct Oxidation Fuel Cells

    Energy and environment issues are of paramount importance to achieve the sustainable development of our society. Alcohol-fuelled direct oxidation fuel cells (DOFCs), as a clean and highly-efficient energy harvesting engine, have attracted intensive research activity over recent decades. Electrocatalysts are the material at the very heart of the ...

  • Red,White, and Green: Transforming U.S. Biofuels

    SummaryOver the last decade, biofuels have been championed in the United States as a new source of income for rural communities, as a way to reduce dependence on foreign oil, and most recently as a solution to the country's energy and climate change problems. These latter concerns are now the main driver behind the promise of biofuels, leading the ...

  • The Economic Growth Engine

    Current economic theory attributes most income growth to technical progress. However, since technical progress can neither be defined nor measured, no one really knows what policies will encourage income growth. Ayres and Warr show that access to useful work, which can be defined and measured, explain the bulk of post-1900 income changes in Japan, ...

  • Handbook of Energy Engineering, Sixth Edition

    Covering the latest codes and standards and the Energy Independence and Security Act, this edition includes information on software packages from the Best Practices Program of the U.S. Department of Energy; and emerging technologies such as oxy-fuel combustion, high efficiency burners, enhanced heat exchangers, and ceramic membranes for heat ...

  • The Hydrogen Economy : A non-technical review

    Hydrogen holds out the promise of a truly sustainable global energy future. As a clean energy carrier that can be produced from any primary energy source, hydrogen used in highly efficient fuel cells could prove to be the answer to our growing concerns about energy security, urban pollution and climate change. This prize surely warrants the ...

  • Fuel Cell Technologies: State And Perspectives

    Fuel Cells have become a potentially highly efficient sustainable source of energy and electricity for an ever-demanding power hungry world. The two main types of fuel cells ripe for commercialisation are the high temperature solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) and the low temperature polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEM). The commercial uses of ...

  • Nanomaterials for Solid State Hydrogen Storage

    Over the past decade, important advances have been made in the development of nanostructured materials for solid state hydrogen storage used to supply hydrogen to fuel cells in a clean, inexpensive, safe and efficient manner. Nanomaterials for Solid State Hydrogen Storage focuses on hydrogen storage materials having high volumetric and gravimetric ...

  • PEM Fuel Cell Electrocatalysts and Catalyst Layers

    Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells, including H2/O2 (air) and methanol/O2 (air) fuel cells, are promising clean energy converting devices with high efficiency and low to zero emissions. Such power sources can be used in transportation, stationary, portable and micro power applications. The key components of these fuel cells are catalysts ...

  • Boiler Operators Handbook

    The popularity of the Boiler Operators Handbook has prompted the issue of this revised and completely updated edition, which examines the change of emphasis from coal-fired to oil- and gas-fired boilers. The new Boiler Operators Handbook will help the operator carry out his important work with skill and efficiency. The good management of ...

  • Biodiesel

    Environmental and political concerns are generating a growing interest in alternative engine fuels such as biodiesel. Biodiesel is a renewable energy source produced from natural oils and fats, which can be used as a substitute for petroleum diesel without the need for diesel engine modification. In addition to being biodegradable and non-toxic, ...

  • Biofuels for Road Transport

    Biofuels for Road Transport: A Seed to Wheel Perspective provides a review of the history, the current status and perspectives for biofuels used in road transport, across the full ‘seed-to-wheel’ life cycle of these fuels. Successive chapters cover the history of biofuels; the first- and second-generation liquid fuels and biofuels for powering ...

  • Alternative Fuels: The Future Of Hydrogen, 3rd Edition

    Revised throughout, this book addresses many of the factors impacting our energy use, including the availability and desirability of various fuels – especially the use of hydrogen. The new edition examines new hydrogen-based technology developments, fuel cell technology breakthroughs, ultra low emission transportation applications, and ...

  • Materials for Advanced Power Engineering 1994 Part I & Part II

    The role of energy in the modern world goes beyond mere technology and economics to influence welfare, the environment, the quality of life and, in broad terms, civilization itself. Since the industrial revolution, energy conservation technology has been at the forefront of the innovation required to satisfy the needs of mankind and, more ...

  • Sustainable Fossil Fuels

    More and more people believe we must quickly wean ourselves from fossil fuels - oil, natural gas and coal - to save the planet from environmental catastrophe, wars and economic collapse. Professor Jaccard argues that this view is misguided. We have the technological capability to use fossil fuels without emitting climate-threatening greenhouse ...
