Agricultural Science & Technology in China: A Roadmap to 2050

As one of many eighteen field-specific studies comprising the great scope of the strategic basic file of the chinese language Academy of Sciences, this sub-report addresses long-range making plans for constructing technological know-how and know-how within the box of agriculture. They every one craft a roadmap for his or her sphere of improvement to 2050.

Reaktorsicherheit für Leistungskernkraftwerke: Die Entwicklung im politischen und technischen Umfeld der Bundesrepublik Deutschland

Das Werk beschreibt die Entwicklung der Reaktorsicherheit deutscher Leichtwasser-Kernkraftwerke aus den Anfängen heraus mit ihren vielfältigen Bezügen zu ausländischen Vorbildern, zu nationalen und internationalen Forschungsvorhaben sowie zu konventionellen und nuklearen Schadensereignissen. Detaillierte und reich bebilderte Darstellungen befassen sich mit den spezifischen Sicherheitstechniken, wie der Berstsicherheit der druckführenden Umschließung, der Sicherstellung der Notkühlung im Kühlmittelverlust-Störfall, der Leittechnik und dem Umgebungsschutz durch das Containment.

Energy and fuel systems integration

Power and gas platforms Integration explains how transforming into strength and gasoline calls for, paired with the necessity for environmental protection, require diversified resources of power and gas to cooperate and combine with one another instead of easily compete. offering various examples of power and gasoline platforms integration luck tales, this e-book: Discusses using varied combinations of fuels for combustion, gasification, liquefaction, pyrolysis, and anaerobic digestion strategies Describes using hybrid nuclear and renewable strength platforms for energy and warmth cogenerations with nonelectrical purposes information the holistic integration of renewable, nuclear, and fossil strength platforms by means of gasoline, warmth, and shrewdpermanent electric grids strength and gas platforms Integration emphasizes the various merits of those built-in platforms, together with sustainability, flexibility for optimization and scale-up, and extra effective use of garage, transportation, and supply infrastructures.

Green polymer composites technology: properties and applications

This booklet is a entire creation to "green" or environmentally pleasant polymer composites built utilizing renewable polymers of traditional beginning corresponding to starch, lignin, cellulose acetate, poly-lactic acid (PLA), polyhydroxylalkanoates (PHA), polyhydroxylbutyrate (PHB), and so forth. , and the advance of recent applied sciences for getting ready eco-friendly composites with quite a few functions.

It is most prominent in wastes that are dominated by plant remains with a high percentage of structural elements (wastes from the wood industry, agricultural waste, and domestic wastes). Cellulose molecules are chains of β-d-glucose with a polymerization degree of 40,000. The glucose molecules are combined by β-1,4-glycosidic bonding. Enzymatic cleavage results from the activity of three enzymes: 1. Endo-β-1,4-Glucanases cleave the β-1,4 bonds within the molecule, resulting in long chains with free ends.
