Solar thermal collector - Wikipedia

A solar thermal collector collects heat by absorbing sunlight.The term "solar collector" commonly refers to a device for solar hot water heating, but may refer to large power generating installations such as solar parabolic troughs and solar towers or non water heating devices such as solar air heaters.. Solar thermal collectors are either non-concentrating or concentrating.

World energy consumption - Wikipedia

World energy consumption is the total energy produced and used by humans. Typically measured per year, it involves all energy harnessed from every energy source applied towards activity across all industrial and technological sectors, in every country. It does not include energy from food. World energy consumption has implications for the socio-economic-political sphere.

Biogas - Wikipedia

Biogas is the mixture of gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen (anaerobically), primarily consisting of methane and carbon dioxide. Biogas can be produced from raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste or food waste.Biogas is a renewable energy source.. Biogas is produced by anaerobic digestion

Technologies and policies to decarbonize global industry

May 15, 2020 · The industry sector was responsible for 33% of global anthropogenic GHG emissions in 2014. This figure includes emissions from on-site fuel combustion, emissions from manufacturing processes, and indirect emissions associated with purchased electricity and heat; without indirect emissions, the industry sector was still responsible for 19% of global anthropogenic GHG emissions ().

Carbon Management & Greenhouse Gas Mitigation

Energy production and consumption have social and environmental impacts. Energy conservation avoids these impacts. End-use energy conservation has great power because units of energy saved at the point of use can save many times that amount of energy when the inefficiencies of energy production and distribution are taken into account.

Incineration Processes and Environmental Releases | Waste

Combustion gases are quenched by water sprays atomized into the hot gas flow. Other, less common, gas-temperature reduction methods include air-to-gas heat exchangers and direct gas tempering with air. Gas cooling techniques are integral to incineration system design, and can be important with respect to emissions of certain pollutants.
