  • FEMS (Factory Energy Management System) / Renkei Control for Utility Facilities

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    Minimizing energy consumption (or CO2 emission) by optimizing equipment selection and load distribution of energy conversion and storage facilties which comprise utility plants.

    Cost of primary energy in utility plants could reach as much as 10 million USD/yr. Typical application includes refineries, petrochemical, paper, cement, textiles, fertilizer, large FA plants, district heating and cooling systems.

  • Flood-induced economic loss and damage to the textile industry in Surat City, India

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    Enhancing a city’s resilience capacity is key for policymakers where there are plans to redevelop cities into ‘climate-smart’ cities. Researchers suggest that this needs a comprehensive city-wide loss and damage assessment for cities in India.

    For empirical purposes, this study attempts a loss and damage assessment of Surat City in western India to floods. Surat is an industrial hub for both the textile and diamond industries.

    Interviews with workers from 145 textile-weaving businesses were completed, including focus group discussions and shared learning dialogues.

  • Efficiency in Brazil's industrial sectors in terms of energy and sustainable development

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    This article evaluates the efficiency of Brazil's industrial sectors from 1996 to 2009, taking into account energy consumption and respective contributions to the country's economic and social aspects. This analysis used a mathematical programming method called Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), which enabled, from the SBM model and the window analysis, to evaluate the ability of industries to reduce energy consumption and fossil-fuel CO2Íemissions (inputs), as well as to increase the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by sectors, the persons employed and personnel expenses (outputs).

  • Halogen-Free Flame Retardant Materials

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Background: Enzyme-mediated polymerizations as a new biotechnological methodology in the synthesis of new classes of FR materials with environmental compatibility unsurpassed efficiency and economy in synthesis stability and processing. Flame retardant (FR) additives are an important class of materials that have been used extensively to mitigate this serious deficiency of polymers. Halogenated materials account for about 30% (by weight) of all FR produced globally.

  • Hydrogen Peroxide Sensing Electrode

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Background: Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is used for environmental and industrial applications—such as drinking water Purification when used as a disinfectant. H2O2 use for environmental applications is not only economical but it also does not produce harmful by-products. Control over the level of H2O2 in a fluid is essential in wastewater treatment. Technology Description: This novel detection probe provides a method for continuous monitoring of H2O2 levels in environmental or industrial fluids.
