Handbook of solid waste management by Frank Kreith( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The solution to the mounting problems in the management of municipal solid wastes lies in the application of a variety of minimization and disposal techniques. This practical handbook offers engineers and public officials an integrated approach to the planning, design and management of efficient, environmentally-responsible solid waste disposal systems. Over 20 experts from industry and government provide all the tools needed to design cost-effective systems using such diverse methods as waste reduction, recycling and reuse, composting, incineration and landfilling. The work also take an in-depth look at current environmental legislation, including 1990 amendments to the Clean Air Act and RCRA subtitle D regulations, and outlines proven procedures for dealing with the policy and social issues surrounding facilities siting and programme financing
Handbook of energy efficiency and renewable energy by D. Yogi Goswami( Book )

Energy management and conservation handbook by Frank Kreith( )

26 editions published between 2007 and 2018 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While researchers work overtime to create new technologies and methods of providing energy, it is critical that modern industry makes the most efficient use of the energy that is currently available. The Energy Management and Conservation Handbook offers expert guidance on the planning and design of "green" technologies. It focuses on management strategies for better utilization of energy in buildings and industry as well as ways of improving energy efficiency at the end use. Renowned authorities from around the globe share insights and modern points of view on a broad spectrum of topics. Summarizing proven energy efficient technologies in the building sector, the book includes examples that highlight the cost-effectiveness of some of these technologies. It introduces basic methods for designing and sizing cost-effective systems and determining whether it is economically efficient to invest in specific energy efficiency or renewable energy projects. It provides guidance for computing measures of economic performance for relatively simple investment choices and the fundamentals for dealing with complex investment decisions. The book also describes energy audit producers commonly used to improve the energy efficiency of residential and commercial buildings as well as industrial facilities. After developing the basics of HVAC control, the book explores operational needs for successfully maintained operations. It describes the essentials of control systems for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning of buildings designed for energy conserving operation. The book also defines demand-side management, covers its role in integrated resource planning, and delineates the main elements of its programs. The book demonstrates these concepts with case studies of successful demand-side management programs. These features and more provide the tools necessary to improve energy management leading to higher energy efficiencies

"This book provides complete and up-to-date coverage of all renewable technologies, including solar and wind power, and biological process such as anaerobic digestion and geothermal energy. The new edition also examines social issues such as food, water, population, global warming, and public policies of engineering concern. It discusses energy transition -- the process by which renewable energy forms can effectively be introduced into existing energy systems to replace fossil fuels."--Page 4 of cover
Direct-contact heat transfer by Frank Kreith( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To increase the use of direct contact processes, the National Science Foundation sup ported a workshop on direct contact heat transfer at the Solar Energy Research Insti tute in the summer of 1985. We served as organizers for this workshop, which em phasized an area of thermal engineering that, in our opinion, has great promise for the future, but has not yet reached the point of wide-spread commercial application. Hence, a summary of the state of knowledge at this point is timely. The workshop had a dual objective: 1. To summarize the current state of knowledge in such a form that industrial practi tioners can make use of the available information. 2. To indicate the research and development needed to advance the state-of-the-art, indicating not only what kind of research is needed, but also the industrial poten tial that could be realized if the information to be obtained through the proposed research activities were available
