  • Waste to Energy Conversion Technologyby Naomi B Klinghoffer; Marco J Castaldi

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 200.00

    Increasing global consumerism and population has led to an increase in the levels of waste produced. Waste to energy (WTE) conversion technologies can be employed to convert residual wastes into clean energy, rather than sending these wastes directly to landfill. Waste to energy conversion technology explores the systems, technology and impacts of... more...

  • Advances in Clean Hydrocarbon Fuel Processingby M. Rashid Khan

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 290.00

    Conventional coal, oil and gas resources used worldwide for power production and transportation are limited and unsustainable. Research and development into clean, alternative hydrocarbon fuels is therefore aimed at improving fuel security through exploring new feedstock conversion techniques, improving production efficiency and reducing environmental... more...

  • Advanced Membrane Science and Technology for Sustainable Energy and Environmental Applicationsby Angelo Basile; Suzana Pereira Nunes

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 340.00

    Membrane materials allow for the selective separation of gas and vapour and for ion transport. Materials research and development continues to drive improvements in the design, manufacture and integration of membrane technologies as critical components in both sustainable energy and clean industry applications. Membrane utilisation offers process simplification... more...

  • Handbook of Biofuels Productionby Rafael Luque; Juan Campelo; James Clark

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 290.00

    In response to the global increase in the use of biofuels as substitute transportation fuels, advanced chemical, biochemical and thermochemical biofuels production routes are fast being developed. Research and development in this field is aimed at improving the quality and environmental impact of biofuels production, as well as the overall efficiency... more...

  • Bioalcohol Productionby Keith W. Waldron

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 290.00

    Bioethanol is one of the main biofuels currently used as a petroleum-substitute in transport applications. However, conflicts over food supply and land use have made its production and utilisation a controversial topic. Second generation bioalcohol production technology, based on (bio)chemical conversion of non-food lignocellulose, offers potential... more...

  • Biodiesel Science and Technologyby J C J Bart; N Palmeri; S Cavallaro

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 340.00

    Biodiesel production is a rapidly advancing field worldwide, with biodiesel fuel increasingly being used in compression ignition (diesel) engines. Biodiesel has been extensively studied and utilised in developed countries, and it is increasingly being introduced in developing countries, especially in regions with high potential for sustainable biodiesel... more...

  • Fluidized Bed Technologies for Near-Zero Emission Combustion and Gasificationby Fabrizio Scala

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 410.00

    Fluidized bed (FB) combustion and gasification are advanced techniques for fuel flexible, high efficiency and low emission conversion. Fuels are combusted or gasified as a fluidized bed suspended by jets with sorbents that remove harmful emissions such as SOx. CO2 capture can also be incorporated. Fluidized bed technologies for near-zero emission combustion... more...

  • Advances in Biodiesel Productionby R Luque; J A Melero

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 220.00

    Biodiesel is one of the main biofuels capable of substituting fossil fuel usage in compression ignition vehicles, and is used in a variety of fuel blends worldwide. First-generation biodiesel has been used in national markets for some time, with fuel quality standards in place for this purpose. There remain, however, several restrictions to sustainable... more...

  • Environmental Management of Energy from Biofuels and Biofeedstocksby James G. Speight; Kamel Singh

    Wiley 2014; US$ 200.95

    Biomass is a renewable resource, whose utilization has received great attention due to environmental considerations and the increasing demands of energy worldwide. Since the energy crises of the 1970s, many countries have become interested in biomass as a fuel source to expand the development of domestic and renewable energy sources, reduce the environmental... more...

  • Solar-Hydrogen Energy Systemsby Tokio Ohta

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Solar-Hydrogen Energy Systems is a collection of papers that discusses the advancements in the research of alternative energy technologies that utilizes solar-hydrogen energy systems. The text first introduces the concept of solar-hydrogen energy system, and then proceeds to covering the technical topics in the subsequent chapters. The next chapters... more...
