      Authors: Pritam Mondal, Omprakash Rajankar, Satya Rajput
      Pages: 17 - 26
      Abstract: This paper is based on a project titled “IoT-based smart farming. It discusses the utilization of the power of contemporary technology like sensors and cloud computing. IoT-based smart farming is revolutionizing traditional agricultural practices. This project also enables farmers to manage their farms remotely. The primary goal is to support an existing farmer and a new farmer who wants to start farming as their side income source by remote farming. Farmers can monitor numerous environmental elements including temperature, humidity, soil moisture levels, and tank water levels in real time with the use of IoT devices. This whole project aims to automate the farming processes. It consists of irrigation systems, surveillance robots, and solar fencing. They can also control the fertilization process and pest control remotely. They can monitor their crops using a robot, they can get live video footage on their device. This will help the farmer maximize agricultural yield, lower waste, and boost profitability. IoT-based smart farming systems may also be remotely accessed and managed via smartphones and other connected devices, giving farmers the flexibility to manage their operations whenever and wherever.

  • Analysis and Evaluation of the Electric Vehicles Carbon Footprint:
           Application to Environmental Urban Areas

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Carlos Armenta-Deu, Lucía Carmona, Cristina Rincón
      Pages: 27 - 47
      Abstract: This paper analyzes and evaluates the carbon footprint of electric vehicles, Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (PHEV), and Electric Vehicle (EV). A complete survey of the transformation process of fossil fuels like petrol, gas, or carbon into electricity for the batteries of electric vehicles represents the goal of this work, following the well-known methodology “from well to wheel”. A comparative analysis of urban cars powered by internal combustion engines (ICE) and electric vehicles leads to determining the global emission level of every vehicle for specific urban routes. This paper provides a complete panorama of the carbon footprint, considering all the steps involved in vehicle powering. The analysis covers the different driving patterns applied to standard daily routes. As a result of the analysis, practical recommendations addressed to minimize Green House Gas Emissions (GHG emissions) in urban areas and to improve the air quality in the city environment. The methodological process uses a simulation based on specifically developed algorithms for the study. The simulation runs on urban and general scenarios, considering the GHG emissions due to only urban transportation and the global situation where GHG emissions to generate electricity apply. The comparative analysis of the two scenarios leads to somewhat astonishing conclusions in specific conditions, vehicles powered by ICE pollute less than electric vehicles in urban traffic mode. On the other hand, the study concludes that considering the global scenario, electric vehicles improve air quality because of lower pollution levels. The results of the present study may help politicians, urban designers, and city traffic planners to adopt adequate decisions to reduce GHG levels in urban areas and optimize vehicle use.

  • Regional Bioenergy Planning for Sustainability in Himachal Pradesh, India

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ramachandra T. V, Gautham Krishnadas, Bharath Setturu, Uttam Kumar
      Pages: 37 - 73
      Abstract: Energy systems in mountainous regions are complex due to the wide variations in the availability and demand of energy resources. Mountain inhabitants are traditionally dependent on bioenergy resources such as fuel wood, agro, and animal residues to meet their energy requirements for heating, cooking, etc. However, depleting forest resources limits the availability of fuel wood while commercial sources such as LPG and kerosene fail to meet the domestic energy demands due to logistic and economic constraints. Hence, the inhabitants are forced to follow inefficient and ad hoc usage of juvenile forest trees (thus hindering regeneration), and agro and animal residues, disregarding their alternative utilities. This deteriorates ecological harmony and demands sustainable resource planning at the regional level. The study assesses the bioresource availability and its potential to meet the bioenergy demands of three mountain districts in the western Himalayan federal state of Himachal Pradesh. Regions of bioenergy surplus or deficit are identified for different scenarios. The ecological status of forests and actual availability along with the demand for fuel wood in villages are analyzed to highlight the significance of decentralized regional-level bioenergy resource planning. Bioenergy potential assessment (BEPA) – a decision support system (DSS) – to facilitate compilation, analysis, representation, interpretation, comparison, and evaluation of regional bioresource has been used to visualize bioenergy status. This supports energy planners and policymakers in efficient disaggregated bioenergy resource planning to mitigate the carbon imbalances while meeting the subsistence and development needs of mountain inhabitants, at least cost to the environment and economy.

  • Scaling Cost Model for the Economics of Concentrated Solar Power Plants

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: A. J. Kolios, S. Paganini, S. Proia, J. Cossard, M. Fahran, M. Alsuwahri
      Pages: 74 - 87
      Abstract: Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) is a renewable energy technology that can provide clean and reliable energy to regions with adequate environmental resources. Especially for the regions around the Mediterranean Sea, where solar radiation is significant, this technology seems to have great potential to meet the medium and long-term targets for emission-free energy production, once cost-related issues have been resolved. Factors such as the capacity of the plant, the efficiency of the thermodynamic cycle and individual components as well as the environmental conditions of the deployment area, all have a significant effect on the cost of energy production. This paper will discuss those issues and develop a cost scaling model that will provide the cost of unit energy production for different output capacities of a potential plant.

      Authors: M. N. Megeri, Prakash Kengnal
      Pages: 102 - 113
      Abstract: Rapid and unplanned urbanization and industrialization have resulted in the distortion of India’s air quality and also have created opportunities as well as problems. The problem of Air pollution is very severe in a majority of Indian cities. In the present study, the level of Air pollution concerning urban and vehicular population is studied. The data collected for the study is from various census reports, Central Pollution Control Boards indiastat.com website, etc. The tools used for the study are Karl Pearson’s Coefficient of Correlation and Principal Component Analysis. The result of the study reveals that the urban population and vehicular population were strongly positively related. The relation between Whooping cough cases and Air pollution parameters in India is also strongly positive. For metropolitan cities of India, three important pollution indicators are identified with the help of Principal Component Analysis viz. PM in Delhi, NO2 in Mumbai and Kolkata. These three components are significant at a 1% level of significance.

  • Use of Advanced (i.e., Membrane) Technology for the Wastewater Treatment
           of Coke Ovens

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Vagish M, K. L. Shivabasappa
      Pages: 114 - 126
      Abstract: Coke plants produce gas, and coke for metallurgical purposes and also supply the raw materials for the manufacture of dyes, drugs, and high explosives. Naturally found coal is converted into coke in coke ovens. A large quantity of water is used for quenching hot coke and for washing gas. After quenching the wastewater contains high-suspended solids, high biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) (600–1300 mg/L), chemical oxygen demand (COD) (1500–3000mg/L), phenols(500–650 mg/L), ammonia(150–250 mg/L), cyanide(5–10 mg/L), suspended solids(100–350 mg/L)and other toxic substances, which cause serious water pollution. So these effluents are treated from biological oxidation and de-phenolisation plants and may be recycled and again used for quenching hot coke. However, because of upcoming projects like coke dry quenching (CDQ), where the treated water cannot be used for quenching, it has to be discharged to environmental bodies. Secondary treated wastewater from coke ovens contains very low organics but high conductivity (2700–3000 µs/cm), which is attributed to the high concentration of many dissolved monovalent and divalent ions. Since they cannot be removed by conventional treatment methods, a commercial ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) membrane can be used for coke oven wastewater reuse and discharge. By using membrane technology and biological treatment the maximum treatment of waste water can be achieved. This paper presents the membrane technology used in wastewater reclaimed characteristics and some results of reduction in various wastewater parameters.
