Daniel Vallentin Coal-to-Liquids (CtL). Driving Forces and Barriers - Synergies and Conflicts from an Energy and Climate Policy Perspective. Including Country Studies on the United States, China and Germany

Several countries with large coal deposits but limited domestic oil reserves show high interest in coal-to-liquid (CtL) technologies, which could reduce crude oil imports by converting coal into liquid hydrocarbon fuels. After decades of successful large-scale operating experiences in South Africa, CtL activities in the United States, China and Germany have been fanned by the high oil price in the last years.However, CtL indicates negative techno-economic and resource-related features, such as high capital costs, high greenhouse gas discharges and high water consumption. Therefore, the technology's diffusion strongly depends on a favourable framework of policies and strong technology advocates. Daniel Vallentin analyses interdependencies between technical and non-technical parameters affecting the diffusion of CtL technologies in the United States, China and Germany. Applying the inter-disciplinary technological system approach, he identifies factors which determine the market prospects of CtL in these countries, including costs, the geographic distribution of coal reserves, actor constellations and technology, energy and climate policies. At the end of his study, he derives general conclusions with regard to driving forces and barriers for CtL diffusion. As the investigated countries are major consumers of energy and belong to the world's largest emitters of greenhouse gases, their strategies in substituting crude oil based fuels are of utmost global relevance.

Hai Lu Information Diffusion and the Boundary of Market Efficiency - Theory and Empirical Evidence

The study investigates the boundary of market efficiency and the diffusion mechanism in capital markets. A stylized information diffusion model is presented to describe the process by which investors gradually assimilate the information following an information event. The model suggests that a diffusion process depends on both a drift and a diffusion force. If prices have converged before the drift force disappears, the diffusion phenomenon is difficult to observe. Otherwise, the diffusion force dominates in the longer horizon and imposes a boundary on market efficiency. The model indicates that the speed of information diffusion depends on information content, information conductivity, and information shock absorption capacity. Each signal has a different degree of information content, and each firm has a unique information conductivity. Consequently, the information on different firms diffuses across investors at different rates. Several implications from this diffusion model are tested with quarterly earnings announcement data. The findings are consistent with an information diffusion process at work in capital markets.

China has become the world's second biggest economy and its largest exporter. It possesses the world's largest foreign exchange reserves and has 29 companies in the FT 500 list of the world's largest companies. ‘China's Rise' preoccupies the global media, which regularly carry articles suggesting that it is using its financial resources to ‘buy the world'. Is there any truth to this idea? Or is this just scaremongering by Western commentators who have little interest in a balanced presentation of China's role in the global political economy? In this short book Peter Nolan – one of the leading international experts on China and the global economy – probes behind the media rhetoric and shows that the idea that China is buying the world is a myth. Since the 1970s the global business revolution has resulted in an unprecedented degree of industrial concentration. Giant firms from high income countries with leading technologies and brands have greatly increased their investments in developing countries, with China at the forefront. Multinational companies account for over two-thirds of China's high technology output and over ninety percent of its high technology exports. Global firms are deep inside the Chinese business system and are pressing China hard to be permitted to increase their presence without restraints. By contrast, Chinese firms have a negligible presence in the high-income countries – in other words, we are ‘inside them' but they are not yet ‘inside us'. China's 70-odd ‘national champion' firms are protected by the government through state ownership and other support measures. They are in industries such as banking, metals, mining, oil, power, construction, transport, and telecommunications, which tend to make use of high technology products rather than produce these products themselves. Their growth has been based on the rapidly growing home market. China has been unsuccessful so far in its efforts to nurture a group of globally competitive firms with leading global technologies and brands. Whether it will be successful in the future is an open question. This balanced analysis replaces rhetoric with evidence and argument. It provides a much-needed perspective on current debates about China's growing power and it will contribute to a constructive dialogue between China and the West.

Change and motion define and constantly reshape the world around us, on scales from the molecular to the global. In particular, the subtle interplay between chemical reactions and molecular transport gives rise to an astounding richness of natural phenomena, and often manifests itself in the emergence of intricate spatial or temporal patterns. The underlying theme of this book is that by “setting chemistry in motion” in a proper way, it is not only possible to discover a variety of new phenomena, in which chemical reactions are coupled with diffusion, but also to build micro-/nanoarchitectures and systems of practical importance. Although reaction and diffusion (RD) processes are essential for the functioning of biological systems, there have been only a few examples of their application in modern micro- and nanotechnology. Part of the problem has been that RD phenomena are hard to bring under experimental control, especially when the system’s dimensions are small. Ultimately this book will guide the reader through all the aspects of these systems – from understanding the basics to practical hints and then to applications and interpretation of results. Topics covered include: An overview and outlook of both biological and man-made reaction-diffusion systems. The fundamentals and mathematics of diffusion and chemical reactions. Reaction-diffusion equations and the methods of solving them. Spatial control of reaction-diffusion at small scales. Micro- and nanofabrication by reaction-diffusion. Chemical clocks and periodic precipitation structures. Reaction-diffusion in soft materials and at solid interfaces. Microstructuring of solids using RD. Reaction-diffusion for chemical amplification and sensing. RD in three dimensions and at the nanoscale, including nanosynthesis. This book is aimed at all those who are interested in chemical processes at small scales, especially physical chemists, chemical engineers, and material scientists. The book can also be used for one-semester, graduate elective courses in chemical engineering, materials science, or chemistry classes.

Evans P. Aryabaha The Role of the Beijing Olympics in China.s Public Diplomacy

The 2008 Beijing Olympics were ardently sought, lavishly staged and hugely successful. China successfully used the Olympics as a tool of public diplomacy with a positive impact on its politics, economics and environment. But how did Beijing beat the odds to stage the most spectacular Olympic event in history; and with what impact? China's Public Diplomacy is reinforced and undercut by authoritarianism... Yet, global status demands more transparency and greater accountability. As PD becomes increasingly indispensable in the management of external affairs, China's Olympic experience offers wider lessons. This book examines a topical issue of growing currency and wide relevancy to PD; puts the Olympics in a national and international context; highlights the paradox of China's Public Diplomacy; underscores China's successful national brand image as an emerging global power; offers valuable insights into deeper understanding of the rising China and its importance as a workshop of the world. The book is, therefore, a pleasant, interesting and invaluable reading for students and practitioners of diplomacy as well as those interested in modern China and contemporary international relations.

Ehling Katrin Venture Capital in China

Venture Capital (VC) in China is the fastest growing investment market. Relevant research found appropriate divestment strategies for foreign VC investors to be missing. This dissertation introduces an analysis of the impact of RMB internationalisation and launch of ChiNext in 2009 on foreign VC exit strategies in China. A data set comprising research conducted by the China Venture Capital Association and Zero2IPO, two leading VC research institutes in China, is considered. The data set encompasses the number of VC-backed IPOs and M&As, the most frequently used exit channels, in domestic and overseas markets between 2001 - 2012 Q1. Supplementary, the return on investment (ROI) is investigated and the China Venture Capital Confidence Index (CVCCI) is consulted. The data indicate that the VC industry in China is maturing as exit strategies could be improved and extraordinary returns are outbalancing. The core result is that the euphoria about improved exit channels is depressed by macroeconomic uncertainties. Pre 2009 the number of IPOs and M&As developed constantly. In 2009 Q3 and early 2010 the exits boosted and IPOs peaked at a level of 220. The upward trend reversed late 2010 and exit since then are declining.

Today, China is the largest consumer of primary energy and the third largest producer.In the years between 1978 and 2000, the Chinese economy grew by 9% while at the same time the energy demand only grew by 4%. This trend has been turned around in 2001, when growth was stable at 9%, but energy demand grew by 13% a year.While China demanded 10% of the world energy demand in 2001, supporting these demand by 96% of domestic production, in 2007 they already accounted for 15% of the worlds energy demand, making them dependent on imports for coal, oil and gas,due to domestic supply lower 90%.As a result of these movements in the domestic demand and production picture of primary energies, China will have to face growing dependencies on the international energy markets, to secure sufficient energy to industry and population.The purpose of this paper is to show the change of trade flows in China with a focus on the primary energy resource coal, oil and gas. The change of production, consumption,import and export of these as well as related topics as price and transportationwill be identified.Illustrating government involvements and economic players will complete the researchto offer a comprehensive picture.[....

Miranda Teboh-Ewungkem The Mathematics of Oxygen and Substrate Diffusion

A theoretical model for oxygen and substrate transport to tissues within skeletal muscle involving several interacting capillaries has been developed. It involves an elegant technique that discretizes the transport problem in a tissue with large number of capillaries. The technique can be equally applied to other heat transport problems with actual anatomical information. For oxygen, the role of myoglobin and the effect of axial diffusion have been considered. For the myoglobin model, myoglobin facilitates oxygen diffusion into tissue and can prevent hypoxia due to the interaction of the capillaries. The analysis yields a great deal of information about hypoxia, since as shown, a multicapillary model of the type presented here is needed to determine if the tissue is truly hypoxic. Because capillary length is large compared to capillary spacing, axial diffusion is a small perturbation to the solution without axial diffusion. The effect of axial diffusion is found using perturbation methods. For the substrate model, there can be large differences between the substrate concentration in the capillary and that in the tissue, depending on the permeability of the capillary endothelium.

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Trade and Distribution, grade: A, Florida International University, Modesto A. Maidique Campus, language: English, abstract: Carrefour entered China in 1995 with its first store opening in Beijing. It entered the market with the main objective to mix its modern western store concept with the local preferences; thus providing a store assortment mixed with Eastern and Western elements in food and design. A well-managed planning and careful management of operations, allowed Carrefour to become the number-one foreign retailer in China; consequently, China became the company's fifth largest market. This paper illustrates the challenges that Carrefour faced when deciding to open its first green store in China. Challenges were due to a limited time line, budget constraints, and constrained resources; the fast growing market and the high competition were making the situation even more difficult to handle. All these factors and other operational problems led to an increasing complexity for new project developments. This paper discusses this matter by analyzing the competition and operational environment, using the so-called Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis. Based upon this analysis, an integrated strategy for go green is formulated; taken into account internal and external factors and forces.

By then, economic ties between them should also rank among the ten most important bilateral ties worldwide. Their leaders are well aware of these emerging realities. In May 2013, just two months after taking charge, Premier Li Keqiang left for India on his first official trip outside China, a clear signal of China's foreign policy priorities. The Silk Road Rediscovered is the first book ever to analyze the growing corporate linkages between India and China. Did you know that: India's Mahindra is the fifth largest tractor manufacturer in China? Tata Motors' Jaguar Land Rover unit is the fastest growing luxury auto seller in China? India's NIIT is the most influential IT training brand in China? China's Huawei has its second largest R&D center in Bangalore and employs over 5000 people in India? Shanghai Electric earns its largest revenues outside China from India? As these developments illustrate, pioneering Indian and Chinese companies are rediscovering the fabled Silk Road which joined their nations in ancient times. Winning in each other's markets is also making them stronger and whetting their appetite for further global expansion. This book examines how Indian companies such as Tata Consultancy Services, Mahindra Tractors, NIIT, Tata Motors/Jaguar Land Rover and Sundaram Fasteners have figured out how to win in China. Their experiences may inspire and offer lessons to other Indian companies. The book also examines how Chinese pioneers such as Lenovo, Huawei, TBEA, Haier and Xinxing have made a strong commitment to India and are beginning to realize the fruits of this commitment. The key lessons that emerge from these analyses are: the odds of success go up dramatically when executives adopt a global rather than local-for-local perspective and are skillful at learning on the ground.

Atoms and molecules in all states of matter are subject to continuous irregular movement. This process, referred to as diffusion, is among the most general and basic phenomena in nature and determines the performance of many technological processes. This book provides an introduction to the fascinating world of diffusion in microporous solids. Jointly written by three well-known researchers in this field, it presents a coherent treatise, rather than a compilation of separate review articles, covering the theoretical fundamentals, molecular modeling, experimental observation and technical applications. Based on the book Diffusion in Zeolites and other Microporous Solids, originally published in 1992, it illustrates the remarkable speed with which this field has developed since that time. Specific topics include: new families of nanoporous materials, micro-imaging and single-particle tracking, direct monitoring of transient profiles by interference microscopy, single-file diffusion and new approaches to molecular modeling.

Raymond Cook Analysis of Economic Growth . Inflation

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2011 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: A, University of Newcastle, language: English, abstract: During the past two decades, China's economy has been growing rapidly, so has the inflation rate. This research focuses on the relationship between China's inflation rate and economic growth. There are three sub-questions, consisting of whether there is a significant correlation between China's inflation and economic growth, whether there is a cause-and-effect relationship between China's inflation and economic growth, and how time factor influences their relationship. The result will be helpful for the government to find a way in order to achieve high economic growth and low inflation. After reviewing empirical literature, we know that as the dada and methods differ, different researchers have generated different conclusions regarding the relationship between inflation and economic growth. In this research, we use CPI to measure inflation rate and GDP growth rate to measure economic growth rate. All the data are collected from the National Bureau of Statistics of China. We use three methods to analyse data, including the Correlation Coefficient test, the Granger Causality test as well as the VAR model analysis. The result turns out to be that there is a bidirectional causality relationship between inflation and economy growth, but the relationship is not so strong because CPI is not solely driven by GDP. At last,...

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Geology, Mineralogy, Soil Science, grade: 1,3, RWTH Aachen University, language: English, abstract: 1. Introduction1.1 Way of Posing a ProblemToday's global economy depends on nearly one single resource: oil! Oil is the main driving force of the global economy.The global hunger for raw materials is increasing particularly in fast growing economies such as China, India or even Brazil. Globalization, the growth of population and the ever-advancing technologies are the main reasons for this growth in demand. Experts estimate that for example, China's demand for energy will triple by 2020. Commodities, especially oil, are scarce goods on the world markets. This becomes apparent, above all, by soaring commodity prices. In the next few years the pace of growth in China's demand for oil could be a key factor contributing to further increases in the prices for crude oil and refined petroleum products. Those price increases could affect the demand for petroleum and influence the investment decisions of refiners worldwide.Oil is a finite resource. The following paper deals with the question of the effects and impact on the global oil market associated with the rising demand for raw materials and economic growth in China.1.2 Research Objective and Thesis organisationThe aim of this bachelor thesis is to clarify the effects of to the growing demand for oil on the global market.

Few doubt that China wants to be a major economic and military power on the world stage. To achieve this ambitious goal, however, the PRC leadership knows that China must first become an advanced information-based society. But does China have what it takes to get there? Are its leaders prepared to make the tough choices required to secure China’s cyber future? Or is there a fundamental mismatch between China’s cyber ambitions and the policies pursued by the CCP until now? This book offers the first comprehensive analysis of China’s information society. It explores the key practical challenges facing Chinese politicians as they try to marry the development of modern information and communications technology with old ways of governing their people and conducting international relations. Fundamental realities of the information age, not least its globalizing character, are forcing the pace of technological change in China and are not fully compatible with the old PRC ethics of stability, national industrial strength and sovereignty. What happens to China in future decades will depend on the ethical choices its leaders are willing to make today. The stakes are high. But if China’s ruling party does not adapt more aggressively to the defining realities of power and social organization in the information age, the ‘China dream’ looks unlikely to become a reality.

Yanyin Zi Iron Sharpens Iron. Social Interactions at China Shops in Botswana

For centuries the continent of Africa has been characterised by negative images such as poverty, disease and conflicts. Today, however, the People’s Republic of China’s growing presence in Africa, particularly with regards to China–Africa business relations, brings new vitality to the continent. This new movement is not a windfall but rather obtained through the hard work of both African and Chinese people at various levels. Narrating on daily experiences of Chinese merchants and their vivid interactions with people in Botswana, this book decodes the frustrating while rewarding process through which China–Africa relations have been maturing on the grass-roots level. This book not only presents insights and suggestions to both Botswana and Chinese policy makers interested in understanding their constituents’ everyday interactions with each other, but also offers readers interested more broadly in contemporary Chinese experiences in Africa a fascinating glimpse into these cross-cultural encounters. This book is an original and pioneering study of issues that resonate in almost every African country which has responded to a growing Chinese presence. It argues that as the process of globalisation permeates the everyday lives of people, each individual is empowered to be an ‘ambassador’ in shaping international relations.

Endale Tsegaye Mohammed Jatropha Biofuels in Tanzania

The global energy supply is currently based mainly on fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas, and coal. These fossil fuels cause serious environmental, political and social problems. Therefore, it is imperative to look for more sustainable energy sources that may solve the abovementioned problems. For several decades, (inter)national governments have made plans to reduce the economy's dependency on fossil fuels by the substitution of alternative energy sources such as renewable energy sources. The Technological Innovation Systems approach is most suitable for the analysis of the development and diffusion of renewable energy sources, because it focuses on a particular technology and it includes factors that are specific to the technology studied. In this research work we have presented the relation between the way in which System Functions are being fulfilled and how they contribute to the development and diffusion of biomass energy particularly Jatropha biofuels in Tanzania, since the technology is locally so novel that it will require substantial experimentation in order to be commercially viable and applicable on a larger scale.

New-Product Diffusion Models (International Series in Quantitative Marketing, Vol 11)

Product sales, especially for new products, are influenced by many factors. These factors are both internal and external to the selling organization, and are both controllable and uncontrollable. Due to the enormous complexity of such factors, it is not surprising that product failure rates are relatively high. Indeed, new product failure rates have variously been reported as between 40 and 90 percent. Despite this multitude of factors, marketing researchers have not been deterred from developing and designing techniques to predict or explain the levels of new product sales over time. The proliferation of the internet, the necessity or developing a road map to plan the launch and exit times of various generations of a product, and the shortening of product life cycles are challenging firms to investigate market penetration, or innovation diffusion, models. These models not only provide information on new product sales over time but also provide insight on the speed with which a new product is being accepted by various buying groups, such as those identified as innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards. New Product Diffusion Models aims to distill, synthesize, and integrate the best thinking that is currently available on the theory and practice of new product diffusion models. This state-of-the-art assessment includes contributions by individuals who have been at the forefront of developing and applying these models in industry. The book's twelve...

But China is not the new coloniser. It is anexpanding global power toward which Africa must pragmatically align itself."(Dr. Martyn J. Davies, Director, Centre for Chinese Studies).Sino-African trade sextupled from 1998 to 2005 to $1 36 bn (Schüller and Asche,2007: 4) and on a conference in Beijing in 2006 China's Premier announced theaim to increase the trade volume to $ 100 bn in 2010 (Hui, 2006). These figuresrepresent China's growing engagement in Africa. But it is not quite clear ifChina's impact on Africa is positive or not. One point of view, of which the quotepresented above is a part, is that China's engagement has the potential to increaseAfrica's importance in the global economy and to significantly reduce poverty onthe continent.

Out of China Out of China Новинка

Out of China

Even at the high noon of Europe's empires China managed to be one of the handful of countries not to succumb. Invaded, humiliated and looted, China nonetheless kept its sovereignty. Robert Bickers' major new book is the first to describe fully what has proved to be one of the modern era's most important stories: the long, often agonising process by which the Chinese had by the end of the 20th century regained control of their own country. Out of China uses a brilliant array of unusual, strange and vivid sources to recreate a now fantastically remote world: the corrupt, lurid modernity of pre-War Shanghai, the often tiny patches of 'extra-territorial' land controlled by European powers (one of which, unnoticed, had mostly toppled into a river), the entrepôts of Hong Kong and Macao, and the myriad means, through armed threats, technology and legal chicanery, by which China was kept subservient. Today Chinese nationalism stays firmly rooted in memories of its degraded past - the quest for self-sufficiency, a determination both to assert China's standing in the world and its outstanding territorial claims, and never to be vulnerable to renewed attack. History matters deeply to Beijing's current rulers - and Out of China explains why.

Liang Lei Study of New Fluorosulphate Materials for Lithium Ion Battery

In this book, synthesis, structural and electrochemical performances, especially kinetics of LiFeSO4F are investigated. LiFeSO4F powder was obtained through ionothermal and solid state methods. The proporties of obtained powders were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The diffusion path of LiFeSO4F was investigated through crystallography point of view. The concept of Li+ hopping distance and anion window were used to determine the fastest diffusion path. First principle calculation data on activation energy was applied to derive the theoretical diffusion coefficient in the order of 10^-15 cm2/s. The apparent chemical diffusion coefficients (D) of lithium in the material were measured by cyclic voltammetry (CV), galvanostatic intermittent titration technique (GITT), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and potential relaxation technique (PRT) methods. Rate and cycling performance were studied with film and/or powder electrode. The effect of particle size to the electrochemical performance was studied. The reason of moisture sensitivity is proposed and tested.

Unemployment in China: Economy, Human Resources and Labour Markets

Unemployment in China offers a new and invaluable insight into the Chinese economy, keenly analyzing the new directions the world's next superpower is now taking. Successfully bringing together a wide range of research and evidence from leading scholars in the field, this book shows how unemployment is one of the key issues facing the Chinese economy. China's market-oriented economic reform and industrial restructuring, while greatly improving efficiency, have also sharply reduced overstaffing, leading to a large increase in unemployment. At the same time, further restructuring is predicted as the full impact of the accession to the WTO is felt throughout China. A further problem is that new jobs in China's growth industries are more likely to be secured by younger, better-qualified workers than by older, poorly educated and unskilled workers who have been laid off. This book discusses a wide range of issues related to the growing unemployment problem in China and examines the problems in particular cities, appraises the government response, and assesses the prospects going forward.

The Chinese in Southeast Asia, with their growing economic clout, have been attracting attention from politicians, scholars and observers in recent decades. The rise of China as a global economic power and its profound influence over Southeast Asia has cast a spotlight on the role of Southeast Asian Chinese in the region's economic relations with China.The Southeast Asian Chinese as an economic force and their growing importance with China are, to a certain extent, determined by the nature and development of their communities. This book uses a multifaceted approach to unravel the forces that helped to transform the communities in the past. Containing 17 papers written within a span of six and a half years, from 2000 to 2006, the book focuses on the social, economic and political aspects of these communities, with special emphasis on the Chinese in Malaysia and Singapore.
