Although it described the amount as under-recovery, the oil firm stated that the amount was due to the proliferation of filling stations in communities with international land and coastal borders across the country.
Uttaranchal Bio-fuel Board UBB has been constituted as a nodal agency for bio-diesel promotion in the state. Has undertaken Jatropha plantation in an area of 1 lakh hectare.
Has ambitious plan to produce million liters of bio-diesel.
Crop and yield insurance is proposed Chhattisgarh: These NGOs and cooperatives are raising nurseries for Jatropha plantation and supplying saplings to others for further cultivation.
They have been blending directly Jatropha Oil into diesel fuel and successfully using this blend in their tractors and diesel engines without any problems.
These NGOs and cooperatives are also organizing the practical demonstration of this usage in their demonstration workshops. They are organizing local seminars, workshops and conferences etc. NGOs have also printed some booklets on Jatropha plantation.
CSIR and Daimler Chrysler have jointly undertaken a successful km trial run of Mercedes cars using bio-diesel as fuel. BIO-PETROL Introduction Measures to be implemented to resolve the problem of sewage sludge that contain a high degree of organic matter could primarily aim at recycling it through a thermo chemical pyrolysis process in order to recover hydrocarbons that make up the structure of sewage sludge.
Pyrolysis of sewage sludge produces oil, gas and char products. The pyrolysis oils have also been shown to contain valuable chemicals in significant concentrations and hence may have the potential to be used as chemical feedstock.
The production of a liquid product increases the ease of handling, storage and transport. The technology, improved by BioPetrol Ltd. The process of low temperature thermochemical conversion of municipal sewage sludge to oil is a new technology in developed countries. The amount of investment is still less than the amount invested in the sewage sludge incineration process, and the operational economy of the process is obviously superior to incineration.
Sewage sludge drying equipment is used commonly for the evaporative removal of interstitial water from the sludge. Numerous drying technologies exist on the market. Customers of this service are local communities.
They are willing to pay top dollar for the disposal of their sludge. The US produces 25 million tons of sludge annually There are references in professional literature to numerous valuable chemicals in significant concentration that are present in pyrolysis oils.
BioPetrol Ltd has on board, as a shareholder, an internationally renowned scientist-academician to address this issue. Selling the Technology — With the completion of the development of the process and equipment for its operation, BioPetrol. Potential markets are water authorities, municipalities, wastewater treatment plants, entrepreneurs, sewage sludge disposal contractors, sludge drying operators.
The company has concluded and proved the viability of the process and is now on the verge of constructing a demonstration pilot for a continuous process.
A business plan is available for further details. Technology The technological processes at issue in the Bio-Petrol project belong to the sphere of liquefying carbon-rich solid fuels. The liquefaction processes common today comprise two stages: Thermal breakdown of the molecular structure to create radical fractions different in size.
Stabilization of the radicals by recombining themselves or by redistribution of hydrogen from the raw material itself or by hydrogen that is introduced from outside molecular hydrogen or from hydrogen-donor matter.
By integrating familiar liquefaction methods the company developed a process of high utilization of the organic matter that is in the sewage sludge that produces oil and gas in larger quantities and of better quality.
Ethanol is part of a category of molecules called alcohols. The simplest alcohol is called methanol and is very similar to a compound called methane.Plans to build a new R84 billion city in Modderfontein, Johannesburg, is well underway with new roads already in construction Tenders; Appointment of External Business Continuity Management (BCM) .
Iran was the largest provider of fuel subsidies in the world by Many Iranian experts agree that these unsustainable subsidies encourage waste among goods, including in the production sector, ranging from gasoline to bread that must be stopped and the only way to do that is to redirect subsidies..
The stated goal of the subsidy reform is "to rejuvenate Iran's economy, increase. Fuel Subsidy Removal: Oil workers demand N90, new minimum wage Gas Senior Staff Association commended the Federal Government for removing subsidy on petrol.
the price of fuel increases. Effect of taxes and subsidies on price. Jump to navigation Jump to search. This Depending on the price elasticities of demand and supply, who bears more of the tax or who receives more of the subsidy may differ.
Where the supply curve is less elastic than the demand curve, producers bear more of the tax and receive more of the subsidy . suggests that a fuel tax will generate benefits as fuel demand decreases: consumers will move to higher MPG vehicles, reducing CO.
2. emissions, and reductions in drivers will ease congestion and road wear and improve traffic safety. Fuel Price Elasticity: . Petrol demand hits 50 million litres daily, NNPC incurs N24bn monthly as subsidy making it difficult to sanitise the fuel supply and distribution matrix in Nigeria.
