Wiley-VCH (Editor)

ISBN: 978-3-527-69147-0 June 2017 1350 Pages


This three-volume handbook contains a wealth of information on energy sources, energy generation and storage, fossil and renewable fuels as well as the associated processing technology.
Fossil as well as renewable fuels, nuclear technology, power generation and storage technologies are treated side by side, providing a unique overview of the entire global energy industry. The result is an in-depth survey of industrial-scale energy technology.

  • Your personal ULLMANN’S: A carefully selected “best of” compilation of topical articles brings the vast knowledge of the Ullmann’s encyclopedia to the desks of energy and process engineers
  • Chemical and physical characteristics, production processes and production figures, main applications, toxicology and safety information are all found here in one single resource
  • New or updated articles include classical topics such as coal technologies, oil and gas as well as cutting-edge technologies like biogas, thermoelectricty and solar technology
