Abstract: Hydrogen is a well-known chemical element for centuries however its use was highly limited as mainly industrial gas applied in metallurgy, chemical industry, glass industry and others. Within last two decades, hydrogen became significantly more popular thank to its use also as an alternative fuel and source of an energy. [..] Read more

Abstract: The aim of this work is to understand how to manage biomass, either as a stand-alone fuel or in interaction with fossil fuel, and to help define optimal granulometry and fuel mix. A higher proportion of fine-grained particles in sawdust can lead to complications in agglomeration mixture. [..] Read more

Abstract: This paper deals with an experimental determination of surface tension, densities and wetting angles, which were considered for spreading on an alumina substrate, of selected Fe-C-O-X (X = Cr, Ni) alloys. The concerned physico-chemical quantities were determined by a sessile drop method in the temperature interval between liquidus temperature of the given alloy and temperature of 1,600 °C during heating with a rate of 5 °C·min-1.
