Overview

Best practices for mitigating environmental damage from conventional power generation

This volume of the Wiley Series in Environmentally Conscious Engineering, Environmentally Conscious Fossil Energy Production, seeks to provide new solutions to one of the grand challenges of this century: supplying energy to a growing population while reducing environmental pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The first five chapters cover extraction and transport of fossil fuels; the last four chapters cover power plants. An international roster of contributors, from the United States, Canada, and the Middle East, deals with the wide variety of challenges posed by converting oil, natural gas, and coal to energy.

Chapters include:

  • Environmentally Conscious Petroleum Engineering
  • Carbon Management and Hydrogen Requirements in Oil Sands
  • Environmentally Conscious Coal Mining
  • Maritime Oil Transport and Pollution Prevention
  • Accidental Oil Spills Behavior and Control
  • Geological Sequestration of Greenhouse Gases
  • Clean Coal Technology: Gasification Pathway
  • An Integrated Approach for Carbon Mitigation in the Electric Power Generation Sector
  • Energy and Exergy Analyses of Natural Gas Fired Combined Cycle Power Generation Systems

Turn to all of the books in the Wiley Series in Environmentally Conscious Engineering for the most cutting-edge, environmentally friendly engineering practices and technologies.
