L’énergie, c’est compliqué ! Cela concerne les spécialistes et les politiciens ! Ce livre va vous montrer le contraire... Pourquoi ? Parce que nous sommes tous amenés à nous poser des questions sur l’énergie.
Toute l’actualité nous y inspire : le bras de fer engagé par les Russes en Ukraine, les guerres au Proche-Orient, l’écotaxe pour les poids lourds, mais aussi l’augmentation du prix de l’électricité et du gaz, les ampoules à basse consommation, los angeles pollutants de l’atmosphère, le réchauffement du climat, and so forth. Tout cela, ce sont des questions d’énergie.
Et toute l’histoire de l’humanité montre que l’énergie a été un facteur essentiel de progrès.
Ces thèmes sont ici abordés en one hundred twenty questions pertinentes : l’énergie est-elle l’ennemie de los angeles biodiversité ? Ce siècle sera-t-il l’âge d’or du gaz ? Les déchets, un nouveau pétrole vert ? Pourquoi le gazole est-il moins taxé que l’essence ? Etc.
L’auteur ne prétend pas y répondre d’une manière définitive, mais éclairer le lecteur dans ses choix... Que nous soyons un ménage, une collectivité territoriale, une entreprise ou à un plus haut niveau, l’État, l’Union européenne, los angeles communauté mondiale, nous avons tous des choix énergétiques à faire...
Le souhait de l’auteur : que les citoyens ne laissent pas aux specialists les questions kinfolk à l’énergie. Qu’ils s’emparent des interrogations de ce livre, et peut-être aussi des réponses, dans les débats qu’ils organisent, dans les cercles de dialogue auxquels ils participent. Que chaque query soit l’occasion d’un échange !

Putting ahead an updated waste-to-energy procedure that mixes adventure, refined modeling and technical-economic research, this ebook examines the present desire for the utmost usage of power from waste and the linked environmental affects. It outlines step by step methods for a posh and unique waste-to-energy process from the assumption to its commercial software. With waste incinerators and commercial crops generating quite a lot of pollution, municipalities in addition to smaller decentralized operations are commencing to concentrate on waste examine. The primary benefit of using study findings is the power to use a fancy method “from proposal to commercial implementation” with admire to the desires of the marketplace tested by means of thorough industry research. This publication builds in this inspiration with an unique strategy that takes under consideration geographical points, the specifics of regions/micro-regions and technological devices and/or gear. Key parts mentioned and analyzed within the textual content contain: strategic making plans of energy-source destinations in accordance with the character of the respective quarter or microregion; kinds and quantities of wastes; logistics and so on. utilizing unique mathematical types; attention of on-site processing of assorted varieties of waste, taking into consideration the nature of the zone (agricultural, commercial etc.); tailored applied sciences for power restoration from a number of sorts of wastes; implementation of person applied sciences with unique parts; and help for environmental safeguard in keeping with complicated flue fuel (i.e. off-gas in terms of incineration) cleansing methods.
