Electric Power Research Trends
The world is becoming increasingly electrified. For the foreseeable future, coal will
continue to be the dominant fuel used for electric power production. The low cost and
abundance of coal is one of the primary reasons for this. Electric power transmission, a
process in the delivery of electricity to consumers, is the bulk... Zero Emissions Power Cycles
Focusing on fossil-fueled, nonpolluting power generation systems, Zero Emissions Power Cycles presents alternative solutions to the severe emissions problems of power plants. Along with a description of new thermodynamic cycles and the results of computational analyses, this volume provides modern analytical tools and equations...
Chemistry & Physics of Carbon: Volume 31 (Chemistry and Physics of Carbon)
Written by distinguished researchers, the long-running Chemistry and Physics of Carbon series provides a comprehensive and critical overview of carbon materials in terms of molecular structure, intermolecular relationships, bulk and surface properties, and their behavior in current and emerging applications. Volume 31 not...
Coal-Fired Power Generation Handbook
The most complete and up-to-date handbook on power generation from coal, this book covers all of today's new, cleaner methods for creating electricity from coal, the environmental challenges and concerns involved in its production, and developing technologies. It describes new technologies that could virtually eliminate the sulfur,...
World on the Edge: How to Prevent Environmental and Economic Collapse
When I meet old friends and they ask, "How are you?" I often reply, "I'm fine; it's the world I am worried about." "Aren't we all" is the common response. Most people have a rather vague sense of concern about the future, but some worry about specific threats such as climate change or population...
Power Plays: Energy Options in the Age of Peak Oil
Many people wonder: Are we really running out of oil, or is it all a ruse to drive prices up? Is nuclear power safe and economical? Is solar energy really the key to providing plenty of carbon-free energy? Do we have enough natural gas or coal to make any loss of oil production irrelevant?
In Power Plays: Energy Options in the...
