ENERGY BALANCE OF MECHANICAL RECOVERY

Oil spill recovery operations have a huge energy cost as well as causing a secondary pollution caused by the use of polluting engines. Besides the use of antediluvian technologies, the largest contribution to energy consumption growth during the recovery operations is caused by the decrease in the efficiency of skimmers, or what is the same, [...]

THE PROBLEM OF MECHANICAL RECOVERY EFFICIENCY (II)

Due to the limited efficiency of oil recovery systems in real conditions and in presence of waves the amount of water in the temporary tanks is too high.   Depending on the environment the negative consequences can be increased.   In an industrial environment the cost of treatment (separation / purification) of oil / fat [...]

THE PROBLEM OF MECHANICAL RECOVERY EFFICIENCY (I)

Mechanical recovery is the most commonly used oil spill response technique and it’s accomplished by devices called "skimmer" which recover hydrocarbons and fats floating on the water surface.   Several types of skimmer exist among which weir skimmers and oleophilic skimmers are widespread.   The first ones, thanks to an onboard pump, create an inlet [...]

CURRENT STATE OF TECHNOLOGY

New technologies are based on energy saving and the use of "clean" energy. Process heat recovery is being implemented on industrial and domestic applications with great success. In the same way the use of renewable energy and energy sources existing in the place of exploitation produce significant economic savings and significant environmental benefits.   By [...]
