    Dissolution and Degradation of Spent Radioactive Cation Exchange Resin by Fenton Oxidation Combining Microwave

    Jiangbo Li1,2, Lielin Wang1,2,*, Hua Xie1,2, Xiaoyu Li1,2, Zhiqiang Feng1,2, Wenxiu Zhang1,2

    Energy Engineering, Vol.117, No.3, pp. 129-142, 2020, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.010336

    Abstract This study introduced a significantly effective approach called the microwave-enhanced Fenton method to degrade spent radioactive cation exchange resin. Compared with the Fenton (99% after 180 min) and photo-Fenton (90% after 198 min) reactions, this unique microwave-enhanced Fenton reaction has the highest degradation rate for spent radioactive cation exchange resin degradation (98.55% after 60 min). Carbon dioxide, sulfate and small molecular compounds were produced in the degradation of cation exchange resin, as determined by XRD and FT-IR. A model for the microwave-enhanced Fenton degradation mechanism of cation exchange resin was constructed. Microwaves were implemented to boost the concentration of hydroxyl… More >

    Heterogeneous Pricing and Affordability of Residential Natural Gas Consumption: Lifestyle-Driven or Income-Determined?

    Bing Wang1,2,*, Yao Yao1, Liting He1, Xiangqian Pei1

    Energy Engineering, Vol.117, No.3, pp. 111-128, 2020, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.010474

    Abstract With the huge increase in natural gas consumption, the distortion of natural gas prices, especially in the residential sector, is prominently shaped into a heavy burden for public finance. Although city gate price and a price linkage mechanism have been established, the price tolerance of residential natural gas should be considered when the price of residential gas fluctuates with the upstream gas price. Determinants of the price affordability of residential natural gas consumption at different economic development levels (Beijing, Nanjing, Zhengzhou) are investigated by field survey and online investigation and analyzed by a factor analysis and discriminant analysis. The results… More >

    Energy Services: A Proposed Framework to Improve Results

    Tatiana Eutukhova1, Oleksandr Kovalko2, Oleksandr Novoseltsev3,*, Eric Woodroof4

    Energy Engineering, Vol.117, No.3, pp. 99-110, 2020, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.010864

    Abstract Energy services markets are actively developing around the world, but their growth rates need to be accelerated in order to help the world meet energy policy goals. One barrier to energy services markets is confusion created from different terminology used in different parts of the world. In this context, various definitions of the term “energy services” have been analyzed in this paper and it has been recommended to distinguish between “energy services” and “energy-related services”. The structural and functional features of the energy services market conceptual design and its implementation models, as well as the use of energy service companies… More >

    Energy Conversion and Utilization System of Municipal Solid Waste

    Qin Liu*, Ruliang Zhang

    Energy Engineering, Vol.117, No.2, pp. 89-98, 2020, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.010373

    Abstract With the development of urbanization in China, the problem of garbage disposal has become increasingly serious. Among the existing waste treatment technologies, pyrolysis is an emerging treatment technology, which has obvious advantages in terms of reduction and secondary pollution. It has good development prospects. This article first compares the advantages and disadvantages of various existing waste treatment technologies, and proposes an organization method that combines thermogravimetric analysis, kinetic analysis, tube furnace experiments, and domestic waste pyrolysis and low-calorie heat the decomposed gases burn together.

    Energy Engineering, Vol.117, No.2, pp. 79-88, 2020, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.010529

    Abstract Featured by high energy density, low combustion pollution and large quantity, natural gas hydrate has become one of the research hotspots in Sanlutian Field of Muri Coalfield since 2008, when China first drilled natural gas hydrate samples in the permafrost area of Qilian Mountains, Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. However, the study on the controlling factors of gas hydrate accumulation is still shallow, which hinders the exploration and development of natural gas hydrate resources. The controlling factors of gas hydrate accumulation mainly include temperature and pressure conditions, gas source conditions, sedimentary conditions and structural conditions, among which structural conditions are the important one.… More >

    Experimental Study on Flow and Heat Transfer Characteristics of Nanofluids in a Triangular Tube at Different Rotation Angles

    Cong Qi1,2,*, Chengchao Wang1,2, Jinghua Tang1,2, Dongtai Han2

    Energy Engineering, Vol.117, No.2, pp. 63-78, 2020, DOI:10.32604/EE.2020.010433

    Abstract Because of the poor thermal performance of ordinary tubes, a triangular tube was used to replace the smooth channel in the heat transfer system, and nanofluids were used to take the place of ordinary fluids as the heat transfer medium. High stability nanofluids were prepared, and an experimental set on flow and heat exchange was established. Effects of triangular tube rotation angles (α = 0°, 30°, 60°) as well as mass fractions of nanofluids (ω = 0.1%, 0.3%, 0.5%) on heat exchange and flow performance were experimentally considered at Reynolds numbers (Re = 800–8000). It was shown that the triangular… More >
