The UK Government has set a carbon reduction target to be met by 2020. As part of its strategy to combat climate change, One of the solutions to achieve the target is by diverting into renewable energy.Micro-wind turbines stands as a potential renewable energy source towards this development. This proposal presents a feasibility study of micro-wind turbines within the UK.It briefly highlights the research aims and objective, what it seeks to achieve by comparing the technical and economic...
Alternative jet fuels produced from renewable sources may have reduced lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) relative to jet fuel. As such, alternative fuels could play a central role in mitigating aviation's contribution to climate change. Although there are several challenges, including identifying appropriate feedstock's and processes, ensuring adequate performance, scaling production, assuring sufficient supply, and establishing life cycle GHG emission inventories, substantial progress...
Nations have depended on coal for centuries to produce a majority of their electricity, but now with global warming and climate change many nations are looking for green alternatives. On August 6, 1945, the world was introduced to the amazing energy behind nuclear energy with the drop of the first atomic bomb. Grolier Online found that in 1939 two German scientists, Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassman, had reported an experiment "involving neutron irradiation of uranium"; meaning exposed...
Oil spill pollution, a severe environmental problem which persists in marine environment or in inland water across the world, has grown to an alarming magnitude with increased levels of oil production and transport. Its causes are either accidental or due to operation wherever oil is produced, transported, stored and used on sea or land. Hence, it is almost impossible for marine life to be free from the danger of an oil spill, though the discharge of oil is controlled by international...
After the formation of WTO Indian food industry started using quality and food safety management systems in food industry in order to compete globally with other food industries. Hence efforts were made to improve quality and food safety issues in Indian food industries. The Indian government is motivating the dairy and other food processing industries for adoption of food safety and quality assurance mechanisms such as Total Quality Management (TQM) including ISO 9000, ISO 14000, Hazard...
Nowadays, it is an indisputable fact that the use of renewable energy can be the key to a greener, more sustainable, future. In this context, the decision of the UK Government to provide 75% of its electricity demand from renewable sources by 2025 is a big step towards this direction. Wind energy can certainly play an important role in achieving this target, with a new commissioning of on and offshore wind farms that will supply the 22.5% of the total UK electricity demand. However, in order...
Occupational risk in kitchens whether restaurants or cafeterias. Grease fires are the major common hazards that required for extinction wet chemicals. These fires do pose hazards to workers. For the extinction of grease fires there are wet chemical systems since 1994 this according to Gagnon, Robert. These work best with vegetable oil since is lower temperature reducing probabilities of auto ignition. Also it is required for the commercial kitchens to have the extinguishment system replace the...
Fossil fuels, which are highly needed yet not renewable, have been estimated to be exhausted within 20 years in Indonesia. Several factors such as the existing average production rate have accounted for the significant decrease of the oil reserve. As a result, Indonesia, used to be the founding member of OPEC, but left the organization in 2009, is now importing huge amounts of oil, contrasting to the fact that Indonesia is still a net exporter of natural gas. The low price of oil in the past...
In recent past, the impact of drought causing to water and food shortages and destruction of ecological system had been widespread and became a national concern. Growing concerns over a potential increase in the frequency and severity of drought, along with the mounting evidence of the expanding vulnerability to drought, underlining the importance of effective management of information is being increasingly recognized in the drought disaster management. The success of drought disaster...
Since time move forward pollution is all over the place, people more and more rely on technology to survive their lives. Technology is to blame for example trucks and cars, airplanes, and computer which all of this creates a quantity of type of pollution. Perhaps machines are the source of air and water pollution. Hard effort to improve the average of living for the people has a result of pollution. A great deal of the entire world's water, air, and land at this moment they are to some extent...
