Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is vital for climate justice to pursue a pathway to zero carbon emissions by 2050 to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and to minimize the adverse impacts of climate change on people. Energy usage and production, along with environment pollution, have been a worldwide concern. A better understanding of the heat transfer processes during energy conversion and transport is crucial for developing advanced energy conservation and pollution control technologies. Significant progresses have been achieved through decades of efforts in the research and development of power and energy engineering.

The Special Issue of Energies aims to provide a forum for the exchange of the latest technical information, for the dissemination of high-quality research results, and for the presentation of the newest developments in energy conversion and pollution control, which can contribute to the improvement of society’s wellbeing. This Special Issue targets the topics of clean energy and storage techniques, high efficiency heat exchangers and advanced energy systems, energy efficiency in energy conversion equipment, etc.

Contributions should reflect the latest research achievements, which comply with the strategic development of energy policy in the world and meet the important demand of international economic development for energy.

In recent years soil contamination has become a global problem because of industrial development. In situ thermal remediation has been proposed recently to not only lower costs, but also reduce the environmental impact compared to other soil remediation technologies such as chemical remediation. During the soil thermal remediation process, factors such as soil type and water content affecting the heat transfer pose challenges. In this study, a simple mathematical model is presented and the heat transfer performance during the soil heating process is researched via COMSOL Multiphysics 5.3 software (COMSOL Inc., Stockholm, Sweden). The temperature distribution and heating period under different operating conditions are evaluated. The simulation results show that the average soil temperature exhibits three stages during the heating process. First, soil is heated from the ambient temperature to the water boiling temperature (100 °C). Then, the soil stays at the water boiling temperature for a while before reaching the target temperature. Simultaneously, the effects of initial water content and groundwater flow on heat transfer are also studied. In addition, the results of a simulation can provide a reference for in situ heating remediation technology. Full article
