Algae-harvesting technique applied to produced water
Technology originally developed for dewatering algae has shown success in separating hydrocarbons from produced water that results from oil and gas drilling. The method could be used in treating produced water for onsite re-use as hydraulic fracturing fluid…

The quest for a more-efficient gas-fired power generator
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.  will begin developing basic technologies for a triple combined-cycle power-generation system that integrates solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFC) and a gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power…

A compact thermal storage system
There’s a growing trend toward generating electricity from biogas (see pp. 15–17), but roughly half of the total energy content of the fuel is released as heat, which is dissipated into the…

Making carboxylic acids from alkynes and CO2
The research groups of Professor Yasuyuki Tsuji and assistant professor Tetsuaki Fujihara at Kyoto University have developed a copper-catalyzed reaction for synthesizing carboxylic acids, such as acrylic acid, using carbon…

Making artificial water channels
A group of scientists from Fudan University China has reported what it claims to be the first example of artificial single-molecular water channels that can transport water across lipid membranes. Transmembrane water…

A treatment process for coal-bed-methane-extraction water
In the development process for coal-bed methane, water is produced from wells. It is high-salinity water, with total dissolved solids (TDS) generally at least 1,000 mg/L. The main concern with coal-bed methane co-produced water is the amount of Na+ and its…

Testing of a new oil-sands-recovery process
A consortium of companies — Laricina Energy Ltd., Nexen Inc., Suncor Energy Inc. and Harris Corp. — has completed its initial-phase testing of the Enhanced Solvent Extraction Incorporating Electromagnetic Heating (ESEIEH) project at Suncors…

This coated silica additive improves adhesive performance
A recently launched, polymer-coated, fumed silica additive improves the performance of structural adhesives — those designed to bear loads. The new additive is capable of reducing the adhesive’s application viscosity, while simultaneously…
