About This Topic

Before trying to find out sustainable solutions for the waste management sector in any spot of the world , first it is very important to state out several parameters governing on the final solutions and treatment. Characterization and composition, collection methods, existence treatment approaches represent the main aspects which they should be taken into consideration to verify the optimum treatment for the daily generated waste. Globally, around 1 kg / rate of waste generation.

The main problem is the mega cities which they recognized with more than 1 million inhabitants, a huge amount of waste is generated daily adding to that if this amount of waste is mixed and heterogeneous texture; for example, the municipal solid waste generated in China and Middle East North Africa region is mixed, heterogeneous and has high organic content, in this case Waste to Energy concept represents the optimum solution to deal with waste generated and in the same time harvesting and recovering its energy in efficient manner to produce power and heat. Many barriers are accompanied this technology just like air emissions, due to that Waste – to – Energy system holds many bench marks of research and development.

Improving the Engine Efficiency Using a New Combined Refrigeration Cycle for Low-Temperature Heat Source (Waste Heat Recovery)

Received: 19 April 2022;  Published: 08 June 2022;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2202020


Passenger and commercial internal combustion engines have relatively large dissipated thermal energy sources that can be used for initiating thermodynamic refrigeration cycles at low temperatures while improving engine efficiency. Researchers have focused on combined power-refrigeration cycles in past studies. This paper presents the operation [...]
