TaesLAB Features


Which are the main TAESS features?

TaesLab is a software tool designed to help in the thermoeconomic analysis of energy systems. It requires information about the thermodynamic model and the productive structure of the system. The main features of TAESS are:

  • MATLAB package compatible with Octave (GNU)
  • Import thermodynamic data from external applications.
  • Automatic generation of the Fuel-Product table.
  • Direct and Generalized Exergy cost computation.
  • Analysis of the formation cost of product and residues.
  • Thermoeconomic Diagnosis.
  • Recycling Analysis
  • Save the Results in Excel (XLSX) and Text formats (TXT and CSV)

The current version of TaesLab provides the following distributions. Download the files here

The Material Limits of Energy Transition: Thanatia

Antonio Valero Capilla, Alicia Valero Delgado and Guiomar Calvo

This book provides a holistic view of raw mineral depletion in the context of renewable energy transistion.

The material limits Thanatia


Thanatia. Los límites minerales del planeta

mites minerales del planeta

Antonio Valero Capilla and Alicia Valero Delgado interviewed by Adrián Almazán

We need a material transition, not only energetic, that restores nature and effectively reuses materials. Gaia must be cared for by extending life on Earth and slowing its degradation towards Thanatia.

Thermodynamics for Sustainable Management of Natural Resources

Cover Thermodynamics

Wojciech Stanek (Editor)

This book examines ways of assessing the rational management of nonrenewable resources. Integrating numerous methods, it systematically exposes the strengths of exergy analysis in resources management.

Thanatia: The Destiny of the Earth's Mineral Resources

Cover Thanatia

A Thermodynamic Cradle-to-Cradle Assessment by (author): Antonio Valero Capilla and Alicia Valero Delgado

Is Gaia becoming Thanatia, a resource exhausted planet? For how long can our high-tech society be sustained in the light of declining mineral ore grades, heavy dependence on un-recycled critical metals and accelerated material dispersion? These are all root causes of future disruptions that need to be addressed today.
