Chemical Engineering magazine for February 2014 edition has been released. You can read latest news on chemical engineering industry and plant operations such as metering pumps that are safe for water-treatment processes, optimized carbon-adsorbent material for natural gas storage, making liquid fuels from waste plastics and more.
Compressible Fluid Flow Calculation Methods
A generalized comparison of three pressure-drop calculation methods is developed, guiding engineers in making the proper assumptions when evaluating compressible fluid flow
Quick Pipe and Duct Flow Calculations
Simple calculation methods for estimating flow characteristics in pipes and ducts save engineers’ time
Perform leak tests without wasting helium
This company has developed helium recovery units that make it possible to recover and recycle the gas used in leak detection. The recovery of used helium is useful for meeting the…
Continuous crude-oil production from algae
Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL; Richland, Wash.; www.pnnl.gov) have developed a continuous process for generating crude oil from algae that they believe can lower the cost of producing algae-based fuel.
Selectively recover CO with this soft nano-porous material
Professor Susumu Kitagawa’s group at Kyoto University has developed a new soft nanoporous material that selectively adsorbs carbon monoxide from gas mixtures.
