Out of the air, into the soil land practices that reduce atmospheric carbon( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a greenhouse gas and the major component of our carbon footprint. Terrestrial CO2 sequestration is a way of reducing our carbon footprint using the natural ability of plants to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and store the carbon in roots, stems/trunks, leaves, and soils. 'Out of the air--into the soil: land practices that reduce atmospheric carbon levels' gives examples from North and South America where effective landscape management is helping plants to absorb carbon as a first step toward reducing our carbon footprint"--Container

Nature in the balance CO2 sequestration( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An introduction to CO2 management with a focus on the North American heartland. There are many ways already available and in development to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere and to reduce carbon output. This video examines another way to reduce CO2 --by trapping it and storing it in a process called sequestration

Mineral matter transformations in a pressurized drop-tube furnace( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To meet the objectives of the program, a pressurized combustion vessel was built to allow the operating parameters of a direct-fired gas turbine combustor to be simulated. One goal in building this equipment was to design the gas turbine simulator as small as possible to reduce the quantity of test fuel needed, while not undersizing the combustor such that wall effects had a significant effect on the measured combustion performance. Based on computer modeling, a rich-lean, two-stage, nonslagging combustor was constructed to simulate a direct-fired gas turbine. This design was selected to maximize the information that could be obtained on the impact of low-rank coal's unique properties on the gas turbine combustor, its turbomachinery, and the required hot-gas cleanup devices (such as high-temperature/high-pressure (HTHP) cyclones). Seventeen successful combustion tests using coal-water fuels were completed. These tests included seven tests with a commercially available Otisca Industries-produced, Taggart seam bituminous fuel and five tests each with physically and chemically cleaned Beulah-Zap lignite and a chemically cleaned Kemmerer subbituminous fuel. LRC-fueled heat engine testing conducted at the Energy and Environmental Research Center (EERC) has indicated that LRC fuels perform very well in short residence time heat engine combustion systems. Analyses of the emission and fly ash samples highlighted the superior burnout experienced by the LRC fuels as compared to the bituminous fuel even under a longer residence time profile for the bituminous fuel
Nitrous oxide emissions( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to report the effect of key operating parameters, the relative importance of coal type, and the potentially significant coal properties for producing N₂O emissions in an atmospheric circulating fluidized-bed combustor (CFBC) and pressurized bubbling fluidized-bed combustor (PFBC). The generation of N₂O emissions is quantified in an empirical model based on the experimental data

Development of advanced, continuous mild gasification process for the production of co-products addendum to technical evaluation. Final report( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report contains the material balance data for Wyodak, Indiana No. 3, and Cannelton coals that were tested in the mild gasification program. Data include tests conducted using the 1- to 4-lb/hr continuous fluid-bed reactor (CFBR) and the 100-lb/hr Process Research Unit (PRU). All raw analysis data were reduced to calculate product yields as a percentage of the product mass divided by the maf coal feed. The material closure was then determined, and losses were assigned to one or a combination of the three product streams: char, condensate (includes condensed steam), and gas. Mass was added proportionally to each constituent of the stream until the closure was 100%
Task 5.9 use of coal ash in recycled plastics and composite materials. Topical report( )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of this research project by the Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) was to determine the potential for coal ash to serve as a {open_quotes}functional filler{close_quotes} in plastics and other composite materials, with special emphasis on recycled plastics. The term functional filler is intended to indicate that the material added to the plastic does more than take up space and extend the use of the polymer. Determining the functional filler potential of ash was not the only intent of this project, since another prime objective was to find a use for materials currently considered waste. The term functional filler also opened a door to the use of cenospheres, which are currently marketed and for which there is sufficient market demand that they do not fit the category of a waste even though they are a product of coal combustion. Cenospheres, hollow spherical ash particles, were selected because of their unique properties. Although they currently have commercial applications, the unique nature of these materials make them an excellent candidate for use as a functional filler in composites. The ability to produce a commercially viable product from waste streams and a recycled material is a positive step toward reducing solid waste. The first task, since there are numerous types of coal ash, was to select suitable ash types for use in this project. Three basic types of material were selected: fly ash, a bottom ash, and a unique form of coal ash known as cenospheres

Development of an advanced, continuous mild gasification process for the production of co-products technical evaluation. Final report( )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The University of North Dakota Energy and Environmental Research Center (EERC) and the AMAX Research and Development Center are cooperating in the development of a Mild Gasification process that will rapidly devolatilize coals of all ranks at relatively low temperatures between 930° and 1470°F (500°and 800°C) and near atmospheric pressure to produce primary products that include a reactive char, a hydrocarbon condensate, and a low-Btu gas. These will be upgraded in a ''coal refinery'' system having the flexibility to optimize products based on market demand. Task 2 of the four-task development sequence primarily covered bench-scale testing on a 10-gram thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA) and a 1 to 4-lb/hr continuous fluidized-bed reactor (CFBR). Tests were performed to determine product yields and qualities for the two major test coals-one a high-sulfur bituminous coal from the Illinois Basin (Indiana No. 3) and the other a low-sulfur subbituminous coal from the Powder River Basin (Wyodak). Results from Task 3, on product upgrading tests performed by AMAX Research and Development (R & D), are also reported. Task 4 included the construction, operation of a Process Research Unit (PRU), and the upgrading of the products. An economic evaluation of a commercial facility was made, based on the data produced in the PRU, CFBR, and the physical cleaning steps
