What is a Ground Source Heat Pump? How does it Work?

GSHP pumps extracts the heat or thermal energy gained by the earth through solar radiation. As the interior of the earth has constant temperature after a certain depth, the outside temperature changes frequently with atmospheric conditions changing. GSHP does its job by circulating a fluid through a closed loop of underground pipes. This fluid absorbs

Prospects of Large Dams

The aggregate storage capacity of large dams, based on dam design, is about 6000 km3. Assuming that half the design storage is achieved in reality, the aggregate real storage capacity of large dams globally is similar to total freshwater withdrawals estimated at around 3800 km3. The construction of large dams has led to the displacement of some

Waste Characterization of Solid Waste

This study method produces waste composition data that can be correlated to specific types of waste generators, such as specific categories of business or industry, multi-family buildings, or single-family residences in specific neighborhoods. Waste samples are obtained at the location where they were generated – e.g., from the dumpsters or disposal
