Agricultural Science & Technology in China: A Roadmap to 2050

As one of many eighteen field-specific reviews comprising the great scope of the strategic common record of the chinese language Academy of Sciences, this sub-report addresses long-range making plans for constructing technological know-how and expertise 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

Strength and gasoline structures Integration explains how becoming power and gasoline calls for, paired with the necessity for environmental renovation, require diversified assets of power and gasoline to cooperate and combine with one another instead of easily compete. supplying quite a few examples of strength and gas structures integration good fortune tales, this publication: Discusses using diversified combos of fuels for combustion, gasification, liquefaction, pyrolysis, and anaerobic digestion methods Describes using hybrid nuclear and renewable power structures for energy and warmth cogenerations with nonelectrical functions information the holistic integration of renewable, nuclear, and fossil power platforms through fuel, warmth, and clever electric grids strength and gas platforms Integration emphasizes the numerous benefits 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 finished advent to "green" or environmentally pleasant polymer composites constructed utilizing renewable polymers of ordinary starting place comparable to starch, lignin, cellulose acetate, poly-lactic acid (PLA), polyhydroxylalkanoates (PHA), polyhydroxylbutyrate (PHB), and so forth. , and the advance of contemporary applied sciences for getting ready eco-friendly composites with a number of functions.

Sample text

To check for metals and bacteria in household plumbing, the sample must be taken as a “standing” sample without preliminary running of water. A household water softener or other treatment unit may introduce contamination. If a sample from a lake or stream is to be collected, the bottle should be dipped below the surface with a forward sweeping motion so that water coming in contact with the hands will not enter the bottle. When collecting a sample for bacteriological examination, there should be an air space in the bottle.

In addition, objectionable appearances in a reservoir or lake are prevented and sedimentation and filter runs are improved. Attention should also be given to elimination of the conditions favoring the growth of the organisms. See also “Microscopic Examination” in this chapter and “Control of Microorganisms”, in Chapter 2. Sampling Frequency The frequency with which source and distribution system water samples are collected and used for bacteriologic, chemical, radiologic, microscopic, and physical analyses is usually determined by the regulatory agency, the water quality historical record, plant operational control requirements, and special problems.

When collecting samples of chlorinated water, the sample bottle should contain sodium thiosulfate to dechlorinate the water.
