Abstract Food and drink processing industries are extremely large consumers of thermal energy as well as bio-wastes producers. The utilisation of bio-wastes for energy recovery appears to be a good opportunity to improve the overall efficiency of process industries. In this study, waste generation, management and energy auditing of a micro-brewery located in the north east of England is investigated. Fermented grains and hops are disposed as organic wastes after the production process. Hence, th...

Abstract This paper reports the experimental study on lean ignition (LI) and lean blow-off (LB) behaviour of butyl butyrate-based biofuels in a gas turbine combustor. The butyl butyrate-based biofuels were formulated (butyl butyrate–ethanol blends with the volume percentage of ethanol 0, 10%, 30%, 50% respectively, named BE-0, BE-10, BE-30, BE-50). The aviation kerosene RP-3 was also tested as a reference fuel. A combustor of an aero-engine was fabricated to conduct experiments on these fuels. T...

Abstract This study investigated the thermal and indoor environmental performance of an office building in the northeast of England. The building was built using natural stone and glass; internally the large floor plates are bordered and penetrated by open voids that ventilate the building and provide exceptional day lighting. A computational model for this building was set up using Design Builder software. The model is validated using on-site monitoring data and then it is used to predict and e...

Abstract It is widely recognized that characteristics of fuel are strongly related with engine performance and exhaust emission. In this paper, a novel fuel blend is developed by adding carbon coated aluminium into diesel. Nanoparticles are blended with diesel in terms of different mass ratios, which are used for optimal selection. Thermo-physical properties of fuel blends are investigated at different testing temperatures. It is indicated that carbon coated aluminium is quite conducive to therm...

Abstract A novel sorption system is proposed to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission, which is regarded as an alternative solution to conventional urea selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology. Nanoparticle, i.e. carbon coated aluminum (Al@C) plays dual roles at the beginning and end of this system. One is used to prepare novel fuel blend, which is expected to reduce NOx emission due to low fuel consumption. The other is selected for developing composite sorbent for ammonia storage reacto...

The free-piston engine generator (FPEG) is a linear energy conversion device with the objective of utilisation within a hybrid-electric automotive vehicle power system. In this research, the piston dynamic characteristics of an FPEG is compared with that of a conventional engine (CE) of the same size, and the difference in the valve timing is compared for both port scavenging type and valve scavenging type, with the exhaust valve closing timing is selected as the parameter. A zero-dimensional si...

Thermal conductivity is one of key parameters of adsorbents, which will affect the overall system performance of adsorption chiller. To improve adsorbent’s thermal conductivity is always one of research focuses in chemisorption field. A new chemical composite adsorbent is fabricated by adding carbon coated metal(Aluminum and Nickel) nanoparticles with three different addition amounts into the mixture of chloride salts and natural expanded graphite aiming to improve the thermal conductivity. The ...

Modelling and simulation have vital roles in accelerating research, providing a more effective way to predict processes without the need to perform specific experimental tests. This study investigated the potential of using raw oil from microalgal biomass as a direct substitute fuel in an internal combustion engine. Based on the fuel properties of the algal oil, the performance and emission characteristics of a diesel engine running with this fuel were investigated using the software «Diesel-RK»...
