In this work, gas phase toluene was degraded as model contaminant in an annular LED-based photocatalytic reactor under various light irradiance and illumination modes as a means to enhance the efficiency in illumination. The effect of controlled periodic illumination was first studied by exploring the effect of the duty cycle and the period and...

The oceans cover over 70% of the earth’s surface and are therewith the largest source of renewable heat available on the planet. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a process that exploits this low-grade oceanic heat. A heat engine is employed to generate electricity from the small temperature gradient that is available between the...

In the Paris Agreement a total of 195 countries agreed on a legally binding climate deal to bridge towards climate-neutrality before the end of the century. This requires affordable zero emission, heat and transport systems. This research answers the question whether solar and wind generated electricity, with the integration of fuel cell...

The ever growing use of renewable sources of energy led to a need for energy storage. Mainly due to the intermittency nature of applications like solar and wind. In addition, the need for regulation of the greenhouse gases led to the development of carbon capture and storage applications. Thus, the combination of those two factors accelerated...

The world energy market has become very volatile due to the increase of renewable sources of power (solar and wind energy) and it asks more flexibility to fossil power stations. Gas turbines are of great importance for the generation of power both in combined cycles and in combined heat and power installations. If in the past gas turbines...

Reducing the hydrodynamic drag of marine vessels is a key approach to decrease energy consumption. In addition to saving fuel costs, this also decreases greenhouse gas emissions. One possible method to reduce turbulent drag for a ship is coating its hull with riblets. Riblets are micro-fabricated structures whose design is based on shark skin....

A conventional annealing line uses a gas fired or electrical heating to heat and gas jets to cool the steel strip. The energy supplied during heating is lost in the cooling section. This energy has a lot of potential which can be recovered and used for the heating of the cold steel strip. Tata Steel, TU Delft and Drever International are...

The iron and steel industry is the one of the largest source of CO2 emissions due to its dependence on carbon based fuels and reductants such as coke and coal. In order to analyze the CO2 sources and magnitude of emissions from the steel mills, the entire process from the processing of raw materials to production of hot metal iron is modeled in...

The desorption step of the carbon dioxide absorption/desorption process is an extremely energy intensive process, which accounts for approximately 70% of operating cost according to Mofarahi et al. [2008]. Technip-ECN has proposed a solution of Heat integrated distillation column which will be adapted for the absorption process. In order to...

Crystallization is one of the oldest known separation techniques in chemical engineering. It has found widespread applications in the fine chemicals, agrochemicals, food and pharmaceutical industries. However, crystallization is a complicated process and is not easy to control. In conventional crystallization, many of the phenomena’s like...

The energy consumption in the industry field is considerable. Saving energy has great potential in many industrial processes. For example, heat recovery from the spent cooling water can be achieved by applying heat pump technology, and the recovered heat can be used for district heating. Previous study indicates that the compression-resorption...

A solar powered micro gas turbine is a new technique which is currently under development. Although promising, a turbocharger as replacement for a micro gas turbine could provide a simple, compact and low cost alternative. Therefore this research focusses on the energetic and technical performance expectations of a turbocharger based solar micro...
