Second generation biofuels, especially fuels from lignocellulose biomass, which are manufactured from non-food feedstock play a key role to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the dependency on fossil oil. The bioCRACK process represents a new biomass-to-liquid concept to generate advanced biofuel by liquid-phase pyrolysis. As liquid heat carrier vacuum gas(More)
This paper presents a targeting strategy to solve the heat load distribution (HLD) problem for large-scale plant by dividing the system into sub-systems while considering the heat transfer opportunities between them. The methodology is based on a sequential approach. The optimal flow rates of utilities are first defined using a Mixed Integer Linear(More)
Functional integration in Operations Management (OM) is long recognized as a key driver for new product development and manufacturing performance. Design-manufacturing integration (DMI) aspects related to people, technology, and tools occupy the centre stage in New Product Development (NPD) debate, extending beyond the factory walls to the Supply Chain(More)
With the increasing trend of mobility of the human population, vehicles have to face the problem of primary energy resources scarcity. The vehicles need higher efficiency and better adaptation to the alternative energy sources. The need to improve the efficiency of the vehicle energy system motivates to search for innovative solutions during the design(More)
We transferred an insulator inspection robot from Korea Electric Power Corporation. The robot can inspect suspension insulator strings and tension insulator strings. And it can be operated at the highest voltage level of 345kV live-line. It can measure the resistance and the distribution voltage of the insulator, then judge the status of the insulator(More)

Greenhouse gases emission is known as the main factor of climate change, and carbon dioxide (CO2) makes up vast majority of them. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a vital technology to mitigate industrial CO2 emissions, which is mainly generated in power plants. Currently, post-combustion capture based on aqueous amine scrubbing is considered as the most(More)

The present paper evaluated a sugarcane biorefinery producing ethanol, through the conventional process by sugars fermentation and methanol through bagasse and leaves gasification, hot cleaning and synthesis. The sugarcane biorefinery was modelled using flowsheet modelling software and thermal integration. A thermo-economic model was developed in order to(More)
Development of alternative CO2 capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) have become important for sustainable and environmental reasons. Various promising solvents are used to capture CO2 such as MEA, DEA, potassium carbonate and recently co-blending of solvents. However, the major drawbacks of using these solvents are degenerative issue, energy intensive(More)
