    • Thermal Energy extends Flu-Ace range (The Engineer)- December 24, 2010
    • Thermal Energy International Inc. will be unveiling its modified range of FLU-ACE systems on stand D5 at Maintec 2011. Providing heat recovery and emission control in one package, FLU-ACE systems will be available in a broader range of sizes and are aimed at processing companies and institutions with both CHP waste heat boilers as well as traditional industrial boiler systems.rn More...
    • Strata Oil & Gas Announces Contingent Resource (Sys-Con Media)- December 23, 2010
    • Strata Oil & Gas Inc. ("Strata") (OTCBB: SOIGF), is pleased to announce the release of its Resource Reclassification Report on its 100% owned Cadotte Project in the Peace River Oil Sands area of Alberta, Canada. Norwest Corporation ("Norwest") of Calgary Alberta completed this independently prepared Resource Reclassification Report ("Report") on behalf of Strata. In the report, Norwest concludes that historical pilot testing in the region combined with field testing and ore characterization work... More...
    • Improved combustion efficiency using Catalyst Injection System (Maritime Populsion)- December 21, 2010
    • The US based company EcoEmissions Systems, Inc, founded in 2008, with headquarters in Tempe, Arizona, has developed a patented system of reducing fuel consumption and emissions of diesel engines. The system can be fitted in a mattter of hours on new engines or retrofitted to an existing engine as the installation requires virtually no modifications. The Catalyst Injection System (CIS) feeds an aerosol mist of an inert platinum based catalyst into the combustion chamber during the intake cycle. O... More...
    • Economy vs efficiency (Sun2Surf)- December 20, 2010
    • Shell explains the differences between its two fuel formulas. FOR most road users in Malaysia, how petrol is processed is a vague notion at the back of their heads. We know it is distilled from crude oil, pumped from oil wells in the ground. But throughout its entire journey, as it is transported from refineries to petrol pumps to the combustion chambers in our cars, this golden liquid is rarely ever seen by the lay person. It is no wonder then that, standing at the pumps, few people aside from ... More...
    • Engineers Show Photos of How a Specific Fluid Defies Normal Gravity (US News)- December 15, 2010
    • BLACKSBURG, Va.,— An illustration showing a scientific phenomenon that defies common intuition has garnered Sunghwan (Sunny) Jung, assistant professor of engineering science and mechanics at Virginia Tech, and his doctoral graduate student, Navish Wadhwa, of Blacksburg, Va., majoring in engineering science and mechanics in the College of Engineering, the international Milton Van Dyke Award. According to the engineering researchers, they worked with a specific fluid called silicone oil, often t... More...
    • Engineers introduce nanoparticle thermotherapy as a chemotherapy alternative (NanoWerk)- November 23, 2010
    • (Nanowerk News) Using hyperthermia, Virginia Tech engineering researchers and a colleague from India unveiled a new method to target and destroy cancerous cells. The research was presented at the 63rd annual meeting of the American Physical Society Nov. 23 in Long Beach, Calif. The cancer treatment uses hyperthermia to elevate the temperature of tumor cells, while keeping the surrounding healthy tissue at a lower degree of body heat. The investigators used both in vitro and in vivo experiments t... More...
    • Heat Transfer Systems launches HTfluidfit for thermal fluid conditioning (WorldPumps.com)- November 16, 2010
    • The HTfluidfit from Heat Transfer Systems conditions thermal fluids within the operating system, which extends pump life, delivers cost savings and reduces carbon emissions and waste. Benefits of the HTfluidfit include; guaranteed flash and fire points; consistant heat transfer performance; reduction in high and low boilers, sludges and insolubles and long-term sustainability. Richard Franklin, director of Heat Transfer Systems said: “This new system will transform heat transfer fluid maintena... More...
    • Scientists convert information into pure energy (msnbc.com)- November 15, 2010
    • For the first time, scientists have converted information into pure energy, experimentally verifying a thought experiment first proposed 150 years ago. The idea was originally formulated by physicist James Clerk Maxwell, but it gained controversy because it appeared to violate the second law of thermodynamics. Put in experimental terms, this law states that when hot and cold water are mixed, they will eventually reach an equilibrium middling temperature. Maxwell proposed that a hypothetical bein... More...
    • Low-carbon energy sources need $10.5trn investment, warns IEA (The Independent)- November 11, 2010
    • The world's energy systems will need an extra $10.5 trillion (£6.3trn) in investment between now and 2030 to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and avoid "irreparable damage to the planet", the International Energy Agency (IEA) warned yesterday. In the run-up to next month's climate summit in Copenhagen, the IEA's annual global outlook outlined parallel forecasts – one based on the current trajectory of global energy consumption, the other a lower-carbon model requiring major international pol...
