22. System Dynamics Modeling of Corn Ethanol as a Bio Transportation Fuel in the United States
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7649
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 1/28/2010
Authors: Deogratias Kibira, Guodong Shao, Stephen - Nowak
Abstract: The production capacity of corn ethanol as a transportation fuel is experiencing rapid growth in the United States. The demand is driven by increased prices of gasoline, government mandates, incentives, and the need to achieve energy independence. Co ...

23. Environmental impact of manufactured products: A measure inspired by nature
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 7/10/2009
Authors: Prabir Sarkar, Sudarsan Rachuri, Hyo Won Suh, Kevin W Lyons, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: Environmental impacts of products are generally determined by using criteria or indicators. There are many criteria or indicators available and during design selecting some of them and assigning weight is difficult. As natural systems are considered ...

24. A Comparison of Predicted to Measured Photovoltaic Module Performance
Report Number: 7335
Topic: Sustainability
Published: 3/1/2009
Authors: Arthur Hunter Fanney, Brian P Dougherty, Mark W. (Mark W.) Davis
Abstract: Computer simulation models to accurately predict the electrical performance of photovoltaic modules are essential. Without such models, potential purchasers of photovoltaic systems have insufficient information to judge the relative merits and cost e ...
