The first phase of a study on the feasibility of producing methane from CO2 has been completed by Hitachi Zosen Corp. (Tokyo; www.hitachizosen.co.jp) and Daiki Ataka Engineering Co. (Daiki Ataka) a subsidy of Hitachi Zosen, in collaboration with PTT Exploring and Production Public Co. (Thailand). The companies have been collaborating since 2012 to develop a methanation process to convert CO2, which is generated...

Two new coating products for sand proppants used in hydraulic fracturing operations in the oil and gas industry overcome the challenges of traditional phenolic coatings, which can leach environmentally hazardous chemicals. The coatings, developed by Preferred Sands LLC (Radnor, Pa.; www.preferredsands.com), are based on a specialized polyurethane developed over the past three years with partner The Dow...

Conventional methanation — the reaction of CO and H2 (synthesis gas) to form methane — has recently become important as a way to produce substitute natural gas (SNG) from gasified coal in regions of the world where natural gas is scarce (see Chem. Eng., August 2010, pp. 14–17). Now, an alternative methanation process, which produces CH4 directly from CO2 and H2, has been developed by...

Last month, Solvay Group (Brussels, Belgium; www.solvay.com) unveiled a methane recovery system (the MaRS Project) that captures methane liberated by mining trona ore (trisodium hydrogendicarbonate dihydrate), and pipes the gas to nearby processing facilities as a fuel for process heating. Sodium carbonate, a key ingredient in making glass, soap, paper and other products, is the major component recovered...
