Pathways & industrial approaches for utilization of CO2

-By Dr. S. Sakthivel Background: CO2 is a greenhouse gas and to reduce greenhouse effect, the CO2 emissions need to be controlled. Large scale industrialization has increased amount of CO2 that is being released to atmosphere. This is contributing to the global warming. It is therefore important that this CO2 is captured at sources e.g. […]

Electrical Energy is most common form of energy used in all walks of life including most […]

Design of Large Capacity Ultra Super Critical Power Plant

By Lakshmana Rao Coal fired power generating units efficiency improves with increase in steam parameters. To achieve steam parameters below the critical point (220.6 bara & 3740 C) sub critical technology is sufficient. However, to attain higher steam parameters above critical point, boiler technology undergone a paradigm change to deal with single phase flow unlike […]

By S V S Prasad  The Paris agreement on environment set the objective of limiting the emissions. The transport sector that accounts to 23 % of global emissions, have to contribute to the emission cuts to meet the overall objective of limiting the emissions. Electrification of transport sector plays a key role in meeting this […]

Innovative approach of collecting and disposing coarse fly ash:

By H Ramakrishna Conventionally in most of the thermal power plants, ash from the Economiser (ECO) and Air Preheater (APH) hoppers will be evacuated in slurry form and mixed with the Bottom Ash (BA) which is also extracted in slurry form for further disposal. The ECO and APH ash will not be mixed with Fly […]
