  • Petroleum Refiningby James H. Gary; Glenn E. Handwerk; Mark J. Kaiser

    CRC Press 2010; US$ 109.95

    Petroleum refiners must face billion-dollar investments in equipment in order to meet ever-changing environmental requirements. Because the design and construction of new processing units entail several years? lead time, refiners are reluctant to commit these dollars for equipment that may no longer meet certain conditions when the units come on stream.... more...

  • Transport Fuels from Australia's Gas Resourcesby Robert Clark; Mark J. Thomson

    UNSW Press 2014; US$ 39.99

    The transport sector in Australia depends heavily on imported oil-based fuels. With this comes the ever-present risk of oil supply shortages. But Australia is gas-rich and oil-poor, so it makes practical sense to assess how our own gas resources can be used to produce these fuels. Natural gas can be used directly as a fuel, blended with diesel in modified... more...

  • Energy Storage Devices for Electronic Systemsby Nihal Kularatna

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 149.95

    Energy storage devices are a crucial area of research and development across many engineering disciplines and industries. While batteries provide the significant advantage of high energy density, their limited life cycles, disposal challenges and charge and discharge management constraints undercut their effectiveness in certain applications. Compared... more...

  • Powering Planet Earthby Nicola Armaroli; Vincenzo Balzani; Nick Serpone

    Wiley 2012; US$ 37.50

    In their book Nicola Armaroli, Vincenzo Balzani and Nick Serpone uncover the background details associated with a transition to sustainable energy production that are routinely swept under the table in public discussions. They are not only concerned with the (alleged) advantages and disadvantages of any one energy generation technology from a technical... more...

  • Green Information Systems in the Residential Sectorby Philipp Wunderlich

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    Given rising electricity consumption, coupled with finite resources, and a growing awareness surrounding sustainable energy, ICT-enabled electrical networks such as smart grids are increasingly being deployed by energy companies. One aspect of smart grids is smart meter technology (SMT), which are sophisticated digital electrical meters, having the... more...

  • The New Politics of Strategic Resourcesby David Steven; Emily O'Brien; Bruce D. Jones

    Brookings Institution Press 2014; US$ 19.00

    Since 2008, energy and food markets?those most fundamental to human existence?have remained in turmoil. Resource scarcity has had a much bigger global impact in recent years than has been predicted, with ongoing volatility a sign that the world is only part-way through navigating a treacherous transition in the way it uses resources. Scarcity, and... more...

  • Volcanic Gas Reservoir Characterizationby Qiquan Ran; Yongjun Wang; Yuanhui Sun; Lin Yan; Min Tong

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 150.00

    Volcanic gas reservoirs are the new natural gas frontier. Once thought too complex, too harsh on the drilling bit, and too difficult to characterize, reservoir engineers and petroleum geologists alike now manage more advanced seismic and logging tools, making these "impossible" field developments possible. Bridging meaningful information about these... more...

  • Energy: All That Mattersby Paul L. Younger

    Hodder & Stoughton 2014; Not Available

    Energy is probably the defining topic of our age. Uncertainty over the long-term availability of some hydrocarbons and nuclear fuels are increasingly prompting volatility in energy prices on world markets. Meanwhile, no serious scientist doubts that the unabated atmospheric emissions of carbon dioxide associated with traditional forms of energy use... more...
