Process Energy and Environmental Technology Station (PEETS) is located at the University of Johannesburg (UJ) Mapulong Building, Doornfontein Campus. The primary mandate for the PEETS is to contribute towards improving the competitiveness of industry through the application of specialised knowledge

UKZN Researchers have developed a low-cost single phase PV inverter system suitable for supplying the total domestic electric load of an average household. The prices of PV modules have continued fall in the last few years, raising the hopes that largescale domestic PV systems could become...

SUNSPOT is a solar thermal power plant with rock-bed storage, containing a unique set of patented and individually licensable Stellenbosch University technologies. The SUNSPOT cycle is appropriate and efficient for generating, storing and deploying solar power in arid regions.
 

Wind power is an attractive alternative source of generating electrical energy, the aim is to keep producing higher energy yields with the development of new technology. Here we have established a unique turbine blade arrangement for a fluid-driven turbine. This turbine is expected to produce higher...

This represents a creative method of pursuing renewable and cleaner energy resources. This microalgae-based technology selectively removes mineral contaminants from what would normally be waste coal fines. The resulting Coalgae® is a biomass-rich fuel made from this waste product that can be used as...

During the refinement process, coal plants produce fine coal that is often considered a waste product. Green Coal has two applications. Firstly, to produce briquettes from the fine coal which are suitable for industrial applications. Secondly, Green Coal can be purposed to absorbing harmful gaseous...

Untangling the Water-Energy-Food Nexus

The objective of this innovation is to explore the efficacy of producing biogas from thermophilic anaerobic degradation of dairy wastes. A bench-scale proof-of-concept study will be conducted using a bioreactor operated semi-continuously. It will be load...
