Abstract

"The objective of this work has two major tasks that investigation the use of CHHP system at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) campus and studying solid waste as renewable source of energy: current and future possibility in Libya. Task one has three major topics. In Topic I, Design of Combined Hydrogen, Heat and Power (CHHP) system for the campus using local resources and treated biogas can be used to generate CHHP using a Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell (MCFC). In Topic II, hydrogen recovery and cleaning system, Heat recovery and electric power usage, hydrogen compression, storage, and dispensing/distribution system, electricity use and economic benefits of the system in operation, and thermal use. In Topic III, utilization of hydrogen production, hydrogen end-uses, CHHP hydrogen output, and hydrogen application consider but not used in the design. In task 2, generation of solid waste in Libya, overview of Waste-to-energy (WTE) conversions, solid waste management, WTE benefits and challenges in Libya. Results for Tasks I and II have been presented."--Abstract, page iv.
