Biohythane: fuel for the future by Debabrata Das, Shantonu Roy

By Debabrata Das, Shantonu Roy

This ebook is a singular try at describing the basic facets of and developments within the box of biohythane construction. the great choice of chapters relies at the basics of heterotrophic hydrogen creation and consequent methane creation applied sciences. Emphasis is at the integration of 2 phases of a hybrid method for max gaseous power new release from natural wastes, therefore making the general technique economically practicable. Readers get perception into the technological developments made within the box of biohydrogen and biomethane creation and the demanding situations serious about integrating those applied sciences. The publication additionally contains information of the microbiological, biochemical, and bioprocess elements on the topic of biohythane construction, as well as the applicability of this method, its socioeconomic matters, and value power research, supplemented with illustrative diagrams, flowcharts, and accomplished tables. it will likely be an excellent vade mecum for complex undergraduate- and graduate-level scholars of biotechnology, microbiology, biochemical engineering, chemical engineering, and effort engineering; lecturers and researchers in bioenergy, the surroundings, and biofuel construction; and coverage makers.

Geotechnical Hazards from Large Earthquakes and Heavy Rainfalls

This ebook is a suite of papers offered on the foreign Workshop on Geotechnical typical dangers held July 12–15, 2014, in Kitakyushu, Japan. The workshop was once the 6th within the sequence of Japan–Taiwan Joint Workshops on Geotechnical dangers from huge Earthquakes and Heavy Rainfalls, held less than the auspices of the Asian Technical Committee No.

Biosilica in Evolution, Morphogenesis, and Nanobiotechnology: Case Study Lake Baikal

Lake Baikal is the oldest, private and so much voluminous lake in the world, comprising one 5th of the World’s unfrozen clean water. It hosts the top variety of endemic animals recorded in any freshwater lake. until eventually lately it remained enigmatic why the sort of excessive variety advanced within the remoted Lake Baikal.

The Diary of Queen Maria Carolina of Naples, 1781-1785: New Evidence of Queenship at Court

This paintings deals a brand new portrayal of Queen Maria Carolina of Naples as a lady of strength with weaknesses and goals, and analyzes the Queen's activities, from her political offerings to her alliance and betrayals. A cautious exam of the interval (1781-1785) lined via the diary indicates that the everyday life of the Queen and gives key proof of her political acumen and her own relationships.

Elevating the temperature to 60°C could increase the kinetics of the reaction, and the process could be completed in 90 min. Edible oils such as soybean, rapeseed, canola, sunflower, palm, coconut, and also corn are the most common feedstock for biodiesel production. The dependency on edible oil has given strength to the “food vs. fuel” debate. India imports most of its edible oil. So establishment of biodiesel technologies based on edible oil is not feasible. Among different oleaginous seeds, biodiesel production using Jatropha curcas seeds was found to be more promising in terms of yield and productivity.

The cost of fuel cells and other hydrogen-based systems must be reduced. The combination of large and small fuel cells running on local hydrogen supply networks for domestic and decentralized heat and electricity power generation would help in realizing the vision of integrated energy systems. Using hydrogen as a fuel has certain safety issues. This encompasses scientific and technological aspects of development of safety protocol and strategies. The psychological and societal acceptance of using hydrogen as fuel is also critical.

Even though hydrogen has been maligned for its safety issues, it has an exemplary safety record when it comes to industrial use. As hydrogen is the lightest element on earth, it has a tendency to escape from small pores and channels, and on mixing with atmospheric oxygen it becomes inflammable. There are many technologies available for hydrogen production. It can be produced from fossil fuels such as natural gas, coal, hydrocarbons, or it can be produced from gasification of biomass, municipal waste, and industrial wastewater.
