The article presents the EU legislative procedure and decision-making processes with a special emphasis on decisions regarding energy policy. It has been pointed out that most of the energy related legal acts, including the renewable energy directive and those aimed at the gradual reduction of emissions of harmful substances, are adopted according to the ordinary legislative procedure. However, special legislative procedures apply in the case of international agreements between the European Union and third countries. The trilogues, i.e. meetings of the European Commission, the European Parliament, and the Council, aimed at reaching a common position before the first reading in the EP, are of great importance in decision making. The article also discusses the problem of energy policy and its impact on the environment, recalling the relevant articles of the Treaty on the functioning of the European Union. The most important paths of influence of the Member States on new legal acts in the context of energy policy have also been shown. This is an extremely important issue from the investors’ point of view, since projects related to the energy industry have a very long payback period, so the stability and predictability of the Community’s energy policy is of paramount importance to them. The possibilities of shaping new laws related to energy at the stage of preparing a regulation are discussed later in the article. The work of parliamentary committees, especially those related to energy, i.e. the ITRE (The Committee on Industry, Research and Energy) Committee and ENVI (The Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety) has also been discussed. In addition, the article clearly shows different approaches of Western European countries and the Central and Eastern European countries (including Poland) towards energy issues.

W artykule przedstawiono analizę kierunków zrównoważonego rozwoju źródeł wytwórczych energii elektrycznej w Krajowym Systemie Elektroenergetycznym (KSE). Sformułowano kryteria zrównoważonego rozwoju systemu elektroenergetycznego. Opracowano bilans mocy jednostek wytwórczych centralnie dysponowanych (JWCD), wymagany dla bezpiecznej pracy KSE do 2035 roku. Zdefiniowano 19 perspektywicznych technologii wytwarzania energii elektrycznej, podzielonych na trzy następujące grupy: elektrownie systemowe, elektrociepłownie dużej i średniej mocy oraz elektrownie i elektrociepłownie małej mocy (źródła rozproszone). Wyznaczono wielkości charakteryzujące efektywność energetyczną wybranych do analizy technologii wytwórczych oraz ich emisyjność CO2. Dla poszczególnych technologii wyznaczono również jednostkowe, zdyskontowane na 2018 rok, koszty wytwarzania energii elektrycznej, z uwzględnieniem kosztów uprawnień do emisji CO2. Opracowano mapę drogową zrównoważonego rozwoju źródeł wytwórczych w KSE w latach 2020–2035. Wyniki obliczeń i analiz przedstawiono w tabelach i na rysunku.

Niniejsza publikacja przedstawia ocenę efektywności ekonomicznej hipotetycznej instalacji zgazowania odpadów komunalnych i przemysłowych do produkcji gazu procesowego wykorzystywanego w dalszej kolejności do produkcji energii bądź produktów chemicznych. W pierwszej części pracy przedstawiono przykładowy układ technologiczny energochemicznego przetwarzania mułu węglowego i odpadów komunalnych, bazujący na procesie zgazowania z wykorzystaniem reaktora fluidalnego. Hipotetyczna instalacja składa się z dwóch głównych bloków: przygotowania paliwa oraz zgazowania. W bloku przygotowania paliwa realizowane są operacje przyjęcia surowców, ich magazynowania (składowania), a następnie podjęcia, mielenia, mieszania, suszenia oraz transportu paliwa do bloku zgazowania. W bloku zgazowania realizowane są operacje zgazowania paliwa, produkcji tlenu, chłodzenia i oczyszczania surowego gazu procesowego oraz obróbki popiołu. W dalszej części szczegółowo opisano kluczowe założenia dotyczące prowadzonego procesu zgazowania, a także oszacowano nakłady inwestycyjne oraz koszty operacyjne związane z prowadzeniem procesu. W konsekwencji bazując na metodzie zdyskontowanych przepływów pieniężnych, wyznaczono jednostkowy koszt wytworzenia energii zawartej w gazie syntezowym (cost of energy, COE) oraz dokonano interpretacji wyników. Celem uzyskania akceptowalnej efektywności procesu zgazowania paliw odpadowych do produkcji alternatywnego paliwa, gazu procesowego, konieczne jest uzupełnienie mieszanki miał-muł domieszką RDF. W takim przypadku jednostkowy koszt paliwa mierzony wskaźnikiem zł/GJ jest niższy niż w przypadku węgla kamiennego a porównywalny z węglem brunatnym. Wykorzystanie mułów węglowych do produkcji gazu procesowego w sposób efektywny ekonomicznie jest możliwe jedynie w przypadku zmian w systemie regulacji prawnych umożliwiających pobieranie opłat za utylizacje odpadów przemysłowych – mułów węglowych.

The article presents the question of solidarity in relation to the energy policy of the European Union. This topic seems particularly important in the context of the crisis of the European integration process, which includes, in particular, economic problems, the migration crisis and the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union (Brexit). The issue of solidarity was analyzed from the legal and formal, institutional, and functional and relational points of view. The aim of the article is to show to what extent the theoretical assumptions, resulting from the provisions of European law on the solidarity, correspond with the actions of the Member States in the energy sector. The practice of the integration process indicates that the particular national economic interests in the energy sector are more important for the Member States than working towards European solidarity. Meanwhile, without a sense of responsibility for the pan-European interest, it is not possible to effectively implement the EU’s energy policy. The European Commission – as the guardian of the treaties – confronts the Member States with ambitious challenges to be undertaken “in the spirit of solidarity”. In the verbal sphere, this is supported by by capitals of the individual countries, but in practice, the actions taken divide the Member States into opposing camps instead of building a sense of the European energy community. This applies in particular to such issues as: the management of the energy union, investments in the gas sector (e.g. Nord Stream I and Nord Stream II), and the position towards third countries – suppliers of energy raw materials to the EU (in particular towards the Russian Federation). Different views on the above problems make it extremely difficult for Member States to take action “in the spirit of energy solidarity”. Thus, the energy problem becomes another reason for the weakening of European unity.

The paper looks at an analysis of the tendency of changes in the fuel structure of electricity generation and thus resulting changes in carbon dioxide emissions. Forecasts drawn up by various institutions and organizations were selected for the analysis. Firstly, on the basis of statistical data contained in (IEA 2017a, IEA 2008) and with the use of Kay’s indicators, the impact of changes in energy intensity of the national income and energy mix on changes in carbon dioxide emissions per capita in 2006–2015 for the OECD countries and Poland were analyzed. A small effect of changes was found in the fuel mix in this period of time on the emissions. The main impact was due to changes in the energy intensity of the national income and changes in the national income per capita. Next, selected fuel scenarios for the period up to 2050 (60) were discussed – WEC, IEA, EIA, BP, Shell, with a focus on the WEC scenarios. These have been developed for various assumptions with regard to the pace of economic development, population growth, and developments of the political situation and the situation on the fuel market. For this reason, it is difficult to assess the reliability thereof. The subject of the discussion was mainly the data on the fuel structure of electricity generation and energy intensity of national income and changes in carbon dioxide emissions. The final part of the paper offers a general analysis of forecasts drawn up for Poland. These are quite diverse, with some of them being developed as part of drawing up the Energy Policy for Poland until 2050, and some covering the period up to 2035. An observation has been made that some forecasts render results similar to those characteristic of the WEC Hard Rock scenario.

A modified emulsion polymerisation synthesis route for preparing highly dispersed cationic polystyrene (PS) nanoparticles is reported. The combined use of 2,2′-azobis[2-(2-imidazolin- 2-yl)propane] di-hydrochloride (VA-044) as the initiator and acetone/water as the solvent medium afforded successful synthesis of cationic PS particles as small as 31 nm in diameter. A formation mechanism for the preparation of PS nanoparticles was proposed, whereby the occurrence of rapid acetone diffusion caused spontaneous rupture of emulsion droplets into smaller droplets. Additionally, acetone helped to reduce the surface tension and increase the solubility of styrene, thus inhibiting aggregation and coagulation among the particles. In contrast, VA-044 initiator could effectively regulate the stability of the PS nanoparticles including both the surface charge and size. Other reaction parameters i.e. VA-044 concentration and reaction time were examined to establish the optimum polymerisation conditions.

Available methods for room-related sound presentation are introduced and evaluated. A focus is put on the synthesis side rather than on complete transmission systems. Different methods are compared using common, though quite general criteria. The methods selected for comparison are: Intensity Stereophony after Blumlein, vector-base amplitude panning (VBAP), 5.1-Surround and its discrete-channel derivatives, synthesis with spherical harmonics (Ambisonics, HOA), synthesis based on the boundary method, namely, wave-field synthesis (WFS), and binaural-cue selection methods (e.g., DiRAC). While VBAP, 5.1-Surround and other discrete-channel-based methods show a number of practical advantages, they do, in the end, not aim at authentic sound-field reproduction. The so-called holophonic methods that do so, particularly, HOA and WFS, have specific advantages and disadvantages which will be discussed. Yet, both methods are under continuous development, and a decision in favor of one of them should be taken from a strictly application-oriented point of view by considering relevant application-specific advantages and disadvantages in detail.

A thermoelastic boundary value problem of a hollow circular disc made of functionally graded materials with arbitrary gradient is analysed. The steady-state temperature distribution is assumed to be the function of the radial coordinate with prescribed temperature at the inner and outer cylindrical boundary surfaces. The material properties are assumed to be arbitrary smooth functions of the radial coordinate. A coupled system of ordinary differential equations containing the radial displacement and stress function is derived and used to get the distribution of thermal stresses and radial displacements caused by axisymmetric mechanical and thermal loads. General analytical solutions of functionally graded disc with thermal loads are not available. The results obtained by the presented numerical method are verified by an analytical solution. The considered analytical solution is valid if the material properties, except the Poisson ratio, are expressed as power functions of the radial coordinate.
