Controlling Exposure to Diesel Emissions in Underground Mines by
Call Number: EBook
Publication Date: 2012-09-30
The use of diesel-powered equipment in underground mining operations provides many benefits to the industry. It also presents many challenges to the health and safety of workers as it is a significant source of submicrometer aerosols and noxious gases. This book was developed to assist the coal and metal/nonmetal underground mining industries in their efforts to reduce the exposure of workers to aerosols and gases from diesel-powered equipment.

Biodiesel production : technologies, challenges, and future prospects by
Call Number: E-Book
Publication Date: 2019
As industrialization and population increases, the need for energy is also increasing. Petroleum diesel is a major fuel source worldwide that possesses many disadvantages, including decreasing fossil fuel reserves and increasing atmospheric pollution. These pollutants have significant negative impacts on the global environment and human health. Thus, it is imperative to develop alternate fuels and renewable energy sources that are environmentally sustainable, with biodegradability, low toxicity, and renewability, and are less reliant on petroleum products. This book presents a detailed overview of the benefits, impacts, and production of biodiesel. Topics include History, composition, physicochemical properties, and standards; General methods and applications of raw materials; Extraction of lipids from the oil-bearing materials; Nanotechnology and genetic engineering; Conventional methods and use of resins and adsorbents for purification; Management of coproducts; Economic evaluation and environmental impacts; and Socioeconomic and political considerations.
