  • Fossil Fuels and The Basic Combustion Process

    The process of combustion requires three items: a combustible fuel containing a certain amount of available energy that can be released during the combustion process, oxygen in sufficient quantity to ensure complete combustion and a heat source. This chapter discusses the combustible fuel and the oxidizing agent (air) as they pertain to the typical fossil fuel steam generator. The two most common types of fossil fuels utilized for electricity generation are natural gas and coal. The chapter shows the combustion equations for various types of elements contained in fossil fuels. It also shows the theoretical maximum amount of energy released for one pound mass of element combusted. Fossil fuels are formed by the decomposition of organics over millions of years. The main combustible material in fossil fuel that is used to obtain chemical energy is carbon, although other molecules such as hydrogen and sulfur may provide some amount of energy during the combustion process.

  • Global Warming and the Future of the Earth

    The globally averaged surface temperature of the Earth has increased during the past century by about 0.7°C. Most of the increase can be attributed to the greenhouse effect, the increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide that is emitted when fossil fuels are burned to produce energy.The book begins with the important distinction between weather and climate, followed by data showing how carbon dioxide has increased and the incontrovertible evidence that it is caused by burning fossil fuels (i.e., coal, oil, and natural gas). I also address the inevitable skepticism that global warming arouses and offer a number of responses to the global warming skeptics. After dealing with the skeptics, I analyze both the current and future effects of global warming. These future effects are based on scenarios or "storylines" put forth by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis. In closing, I address the controversial (and grim) suggestion that we ave already passed the "tipping point," which is the time after which, regardless of our future actions, global warming will cause considerable hardship on human society. I intend this book to be approachable for all concerned citizens, but especially students of the sciences and engineering who will soon be in a position to make a difference in the areas of energy and the environment. I have tried to frame the debate in terms of what the engineering community must do to help combat global warming. We have no choice but to think in terms of global environmental constraints as we design new power plants, factories, automobiles, buildings, and homes. The best thing for scientists to do is to present what we know, clearly separating what is known from what is suspected, in a non-apocalyptic manner. If matters are clearly and passionately presented to the public, we must be prepared to accept the will of the people. This presents the scientific community with an enormous res onsibility, perhaps unlike any we have had in the past.

  • Introduction

    The global demand for clean energy and electricity is rising fast. Thermal power plants burning fossil fuels are still the main source of power generation worldwide. Modern civilization cannot rely solely on fossil¿¿¿fuel¿¿¿based power generation in the future, even though today it is the dominant technology for electric power generation. Transmission and distribution losses and the low energy efficiency of end¿¿¿user applications are other elements contributing to the reduced exploitation of generated electricity. Power electronics and new converter technologies may support some of the sustainability goals by enabling the cost¿¿¿efficient and reliable integration of renewable energy sources (RES) into the power system. The use of voltage¿¿¿source¿¿¿converter (VSC) technology makes it possible to maintain the voltage and power quality on the connecting ac networks. The integration of RES into the power system will strongly rely on the availability of transmission and distribution networks.

  • Samples

    For the biomass sampling discussed in this chapter, a number of biomass samples have been chosen for their energy content and for a variety of other factors - ?>plant growth,?> ?>cost,?> ?>availability,?> ?>ease of production,?> and environmental issues. These samples are presented and discussed in the chapter, mainly for the purpose of building a concept and an outline prior to the construction of REA1 methodology. The discussion and examination of each sample is listed under four different headlines: general introduction, characteristics, composition, and suitability as a fuel. The samples discussed are corn, wheat, miscanthus, rice, barley, sunflower, Niger seed, and rapeseed.

  • Background

    This chapter provides a brief generalized overview concerning renewable energy, biomass applications, and co-firing. The renewable energy covers a wide array of energy sources such as wind, water, geothermal, solar and biomass. From ancient time to the present day, biomass was and remains a reliable source of energy in our daily lives. Typical biomass applications can be categorized under combustion, gasification, and pyrolysis. The chapter briefly discusses the three types of co-firing: direct co-firing, indirect co- firing and parallel co-firing. A new design for the systems engineering approach solutions is what many of the co-firing systems presently require. To obtain the energy, the combustion factor is the key to biomass conversion technologies: thermochemical conversion, and biochemical conversion. The chapter also discusses Energy Crops Scheme, Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) and Climate Change Levy Exemption Certificate (LEC).

  • Conclusion

    This book has examined in detail the selection process of biomass materials for the purpose of using them as a source of a fuel. This concluding chapter of the book provides an outline on the application of REA1 methodology, and the importance of biomass as a source of renewable energy. A number of businessmen, engineers, researchers, and technicians still believe that there is not enough support at the present time for co-firing methods and for the bio-fuels industries in general. The super fuel sample (SFS) fulfills certain factors such as price, quality, and availability, storage, which the majority of biofuels available on the market cannot provide. Depending on the type of technology used and the type of biomass materials, the cost of producing energy from biomass materials can vary.

  • Introduction

    This introductory chapter provides an overview of the structure and contents of the book. It focuses on energy utilization and discusses the need for effective biomass utilization. The chapter also discusses why the need for a new energy system exists, and explains several barriers to the adoption of renewable energy technologies. The aim of the book is to apply a systematic approach to biomass materials for the purpose of finding the most economical and efficient type, capable of producing sufficient energy on a commercial scale. This should help in reducing harmful gasses and stabilize CO2 in the atmosphere. The book investigates various biomass samples for long-term commercial use. When environmental issues, long-term supply/availability, and economic reasons are taken into account, the design and implementation of a new biomass energy system can provide benefits in many ways.
