Energy assessments for industrial complexes by Ashok Kumar( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This e-book discusses methods that businesses may employ to reduce energy costs related to managing industrial buildings through environmentally sustainable methods. There are several chapters covering various aspects of energy assessments and each chapter is linked to case histories that are given in the appendix. The chapters cover energy efficient methods for managing lighting, insulation, machines, air conditioning and much more. Information needed during the assessment process is also supplemented in tables. Readers who wish to gain a better understanding of[] the many ways to reduce en
World biodiesel policies and production by Hyunsoo Joo( )

7 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents the evolution of biodiesel technologies integrated with government policies of major biodiesel producing countries with their backgrounds, impacts, changes and other energy forms. Biodiesel feedstock and biodiesel production technologies including green algae and methanol are presented in separate chapters. Changes in the feedstock types and the corresponding technologies are presented, and their impacts on the biodiesel policies are explained. The life cycle analysis (LCA) of biodiesel is presented and the findings are given for different feedstocks in terms of greenhouse gases, energy, and other impact categories, related to biodiesel policy, research, and development"--
Chemo-biological systems for CO2 utilization( )

5 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book will give emphasis on the energy generation in the form of biofuels, bioelectricity or biogas using chemicals, nanomaterial, microbial, enzymatic and chemo-enzymatic integrated systems from CO2. This book has been divided into four sections. The first section is comprised of four chapters which will describe the importance and utilization of CO2 in the living system, various fundamental methods, policies and techniques of CO2 conversion. The second section will focus on the absorption and fixation of CO2 using various ionic liquids, organic solvents, amine based solutions, electro catalytic reduction, nanomaterial, porphyrins, ceramics MOFs and activated carbons and biological material particularly. This section will be covered with 5-6 chapters which will draw the insight of various chemical engineers, researchers working across the globe for CO2 conversion. After this third section will give emphasis on the production of value added products using CO2. It will contain 4-5 chapters which mainly focused on the production of bio-methanol, industrial carbonates lime, liquid and gaseous fuels, industrially useful precursors etc. In the last section this book will discusses potential of microbial system, enzymes in the sequestration of CO2 and its utilization. The combined chemo-enzymatic system for utilization of CO2 will be discussed in the respective chapters of this book. This reliable information from various active researchers and groups will be helpful to find out the alternatives for clean energy and mitigating the climatic change. This book will help the researchers and industrialists to better understand the correlation between microbial, biological and chemical products for their further use to convert the increased level of CO2 into energy based system. The final chapter will present the chemo-enzymatic system for decarbonization of automobile and industrial smoke to direct the clean emission"--

Characterization and speciation of fine particulate matter inside the public transport buses running on bio-diesel by Ashok Kumar( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Air pollution with respect to particulate matter was investigated in Toledo, Ohio, USA, a city of approximately 300,000, in 2009. Two study buses were selected to reflect typical exposure conditions of passengers while traveling in the bus. Monitoring inside the bus was done in the spring and summer seasons. Particulate matter levels found inside the bus were well below the USEPA standards. Scanning electron microscope analysis was used to identify the possible sources. Particle shape and size distribution analysis was conducted and aspect ratios were determined; the results will be used to find out the potential particle dynamics inside the bus. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons were analyzed to determine potential carcinogenic matter exposure to passengers. The absence of carcinogens in all the samples suggests healthful air quality levels inside the bus. SEM methodology is a valuable tool for studying the distribution of particulate pollutants. These patterns represented the morphological characteristics of single inhalable particles in the air inside the bus in Toledo. The size distribution was generally multi-modal for the ULSD but uni-modal for the B20-fueled bus. The aspect ratio found for different filters collected inside the bus fueled by both the B20 blend and ULSD ranged 2.4-3.6 and 2.3- 2.9 in average value with standard deviation range 0.9-7.4 and 1-7.3 respectively. The square and oblong particles represented the morphology characteristics of the single inhalable particles in the air of a Toledo transit bus
