Kirkpatrick Chemical Engineering Achievement Award
Chemical Engineering magazine’s biennial prize is looking to honor the most noteworthy chemical engineering technology commercialized during 2011 or 2012
Waste Heat Recovery Methods and Technologies
There is significant potential for recovering some of the wasted heat in the CPI. Key requirements, benefits and drawbacks for numerous techniques are reviewed
Applying ASME Boiler Code to Steam Generation Systems
Determining when and how the ASME boiler code applies to steam systems in petrochemical operations can be difficult. Guidance on the requirements for boiler code stamping can help
Non-chemical Water Treatment
Non-chemical water treatment methods generally utilize electricity to prevent scale formation, mitigate corrosion and control microbial growth. When properly applied, non-chemical water-treatment technologies help plants reduce chemical consumption, minimize waste and possibly save water and energy
Design and Specification of a Compressed Air System
A practical overview of what to look out for when specifying a compressor and its associated components
Using sunlight to incorporate CO2 into alpha-amino ketones
The research group of Masahiro Murakami at Kyoto University (Kyoto, Japan) has synthesized a promising pharmaceutical precursor using only sunlight (as energy source) and CO2 (as co-reagent).
Membrane reactor may reduce wastage of natural gas
A small-scale ceramic membrane reactor to convert natural gas to transportable liquids in a single step is being developed by Ceramatec, Inc. (Salt Lake City, Utah) under a $1.7-million grant from the U.S. Dept. of Energy’s Advanced
A starch-based cationic polymer for oil recovery
Cationic polymers have been used in the petroleum industry as shale-control agents, demulsifiers, blocking agents, and filtrate reducers for drilling fluids, but process complexity and high cost have limited their application.
Improved bioleaching for nickel recovery
An Indian team from the Institute of Minerals & Materials Technology and Utkal University (both Bhubaneswar, Orissa, India) has achieved significant improvement in the recovery of nickel from lateritic ore by…
