Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI; Tokyo, Japan; edlinks.che.com/7368-533) is marketing a new process that captures carbon dioxide from flue gas (FG) for enhanced oil recovery (EOR). The KM-CDR process uses a proprietary amine-based solvent (KS-1) in a packed column to absorb and regenerate CO2 with less energy than conventional CO2 -recovery processes and with "far less" solvent loss...

Ethanol production is an energy-intensive process in which about 50% of the cost is for distillation and dehydration of the ethanol. A membrane system that does the same job, but reduces the energy consumption by up to 50%, has been developed by Vaperma Inc. (St-Romuald, Quebec; Canada; edlinks.che.com/6902-533). The method was described by Christian Roy, vice-president, business development, at the Annual...

Within five years, four large power plants in Europe will be outfitted — for testing at the pilot scale — with energy-efficient CO2-filtering membranes that are being developed at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU; Trondheim; edlinks.che.com/6901-531). Professor May-Britt Hägg, head of the membrane research group (MEMFO) at NTNU’s chemical engineering...

Mitsubishi Materials Corp. (edlinks.che.com/6899-535), with the project support of Petroleum Energy Center, Japan, (both Tokyo), has developed a new thermal process that uses supercritical (SC) water to crack vacuum distillation residue oil (VR) into clean, lighter oil with a high yield. The lighter oil products from the new process have less metal impurities than alternative cracking processes and the...

    Fouling is one of the most vexing problems in water-treatment systems that use membranes to remove suspended and dissolved particles. The deposition and accumulation of these substances on membrane surfaces inevitably lead to loss of performance for the membrane [1]. While there are several strategies for reducing fouling, the right solution varies with the process and type of fouling.  ...

    Kermit the Frog once said, “It isn’t easy being green.” While this may be true, industry is still making the effort. Both in the U.S. and abroad, processors are not only striving to produce environmentally friendly products, but also are becoming more mindful of the impact of their operations. More often than not, cleaning up both products and processes requires the use of...

    In multicomponent systems, equation-of-state (EOS) methods generally do a good job of determining vapor-phase properties. But accurate determination of properties for the liquid phase is much more difficult, especially when the liquid contains dissimilar molecules, polar molecules such as alcohols and glycols, or acid gasses such as H2S and CO2.   In this article, a multicomponent system...

Crossflow (CF) filtration is widely used for separating substances with poor filtration properties. As the method’s name implies, a crossflow of the feed continuously flows across the filter membrane in order to wash away material accumulations that clog the membrane pores. Nevertheless, conventional methods rely on a pump to adjust the feed overflow rate, which requires substantial energy, even for...

    In the chemical process industries (CPI), pressure is constantly on to improve filtration. The filtration step has to be performed quickly (time is money), efficiently (product loss is money lost), and effectively (energy costs for pumping and drying are soaring). As a result, vendors of filtration equipment — be it for dust removal from fluegas or product recovery from a gas or liquid...

    Most columns shut down without fires. Yet most refineries and chemical plants at some time or another have experienced spontaneous or hot work ignitions in at least one column. When this occurs inside a column during or after shutdown, the results can be devastating and dangerous. This paper concentrates on the fires related to packing in columns.   Many refineries and chemical plants...

Techno Bank Co., Ltd. (Tokyo, Japan; edlinks.che.com/6897-537) has developed a new supply, storage, and transport system for safely handling a high capacity of hydrogen in fuel-cell applications. The system — a cassette containing nano-sized powder of magnesium hydride (MgH₂) — is said to be safer than alternatives, such as insulated cylinders of liquid H₂ at 700 bar. Other methods being...

What is billed as the world’s first plant to produce liquefied natural gas (LNG) from landfill gas is now being commissioned in Irvine, Calif., by Prometheus Energy Company (Seattle, Wash.; edlinks.che.com/6897-540). The first module is expected to reach its capacity of around 5,000 gal/d (about 750 scf/min of gas) by fall, says Dan Clarkson, vice-president. Other modules will be added later to use...
