The production of biofuels is a primary intended use for biomass. Because the cellulosic biofuels industry is still developing, there is not yet sufficient capacity in biofuel refineries to utilize biomass crops grown for cellulosic biofuels. However, the bioeconomy overall is growing, and many products other than biofuels can be manufactured from biomass. These byproducts may be alternate markets [i] for …
A lease gives the wind developer the right to possess the land specified in the lease. A lease should contain very specific terms about the period of time that the lease is valid and the rights and responsibilities of the landowner and the wind developer (tenant). The right to possess the land includes a certain amount of control over the land that is leased, and the landowner cannot interfere with the rights of the tenant during the period of the …

USEFUL HVAC CONVERSION MEASURES:
- 1 HP= 0.746 KW = 746 Watts = 2,545 BTU/h = 1.0 kVA
- 1 KW= 1,000 Watts = 3,413 BTU/h = 1.341 HP
- 1 Watt = 3.413 BTU/h
- 1 Ton Ac = 12,000 BTU/h Cooling = 15,000 BTU/h Heat Rejection
- 1 BTU/h = 1 BTU per hour
- 1 BHP = 34,500 BTU/h (33,472 BTU/h) = 34.5 Lb. Steam per hour = 34.5 Lb. H2O/Hr. = 0.069 GPM = 4.14
The end result of combustion is useful energy – typically in the form of heat, power, or both heat and power. This can be used to provide space heating for buildings, process heating for industrial needs, electricity for on-site use or sale to the grid, or the simultaneous generation of heat and electricity (so called “combined heat and power,” or CHP). Most commonly, the combustion heat is captured in the form of hot water, hot air or steam.
