Geothermal Water Management

Featured

Jochen Bundschuh, Barbara Tomaszewska
August 8, 2017

Availability of and adequate accessibility to freshwater and energy are two key technological and scientific problems of global significance. At the end of the 20th century, the deficit of water for human consumption and economic application forced us to focus on rational use of resources. Increasin...

Geothermal, Wind and Solar Energy Applications in Agriculture and Aquaculture

Featured

Jochen Bundschuh, Guangnan Chen, D. Chandrasekharam, Janusz Piechocki
July 17, 2017

The agri-food chain consumes about one third of the world’s energy production with about 12% of it for crop production and nearly 80% for processing, distribution, retail, preparation and cooking. The agri-food chain also accounts for 80-90% of total global freshwater use where 70% alone is for ir...
