  • Oil shales - a competitive fuel of thermal power generation with new technologies

    We show that, in spite of the low heat of combustion of oil shales, use of them on the basis of a new thermal-processing technology that produces high-calorie products (shale tar and fuel gas) makes this type of fuel competitive for thermal power plants (TPPs) in comparison with high-calorie coals. When a certain amount of shale tar and all of the fuel gas are used in a combined cycle of a TPP, ...

  • Thermal and flexural properties of room–temperature cured PMMA grafted natural rubber toughened epoxy layered silicate nanocomposite

    Thermal and flexural properties of ternary system containing epoxy, poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) grafted natural rubber, and organic chemically modified montmorillonite clay (Cloisite 30B) were studied. The results of TEM, SEM, XRD, FTIR, DSC, TGA and flexural tests were discussed. The rates of glass transition and decomposition process were introduced as relevant parameters to evaluate glass ...

  • News on Air 2014, Volume 1: Thermal Desorption - Selecting Your Adsorbent Tube

    Thermal Desorption - which tube and which adsorbent do I need? Supelco produces a comprehensive selection of adsorbent tubes. Selection of the proper adsorbent(s) is critical to achieving the best results for a thermal desorption application. An ideal adsorbent tube, such as Carbotrap tubes, will trap and retain compounds of interest for the entire sampling period, then allow total analyte ...

  • Investigation of mechanical, thermal properties and non-isothermal crystallisation kinetic of polypropylene/single-walled carbon nanotube

    This paper is devoted to the study of the mechanical, thermal properties and non-isothermal crystallisation kinetics of polypropylene and polypropylene/single-walled carbon nanotubes (PP/SWNTs) nanocomposites. The results of tensile testing measurements show that the modulus of nanocomposites is greatly enhanced 82% compared with neat PP. Moreover, the elongation at break of nanocomposites ...

    Abstract The paper presents a joint research made by the Siberian State Academy for Mining and Metallurgy and the Institute of Metallurgy and Concentration of the National Academy of Sciences, Kazakhstan, on separation of aluminum oxide from ash and slag of Kuzbass thermal power plants. This work is an integral part of 'The Development of a Technology for Deep Processing of Waste from Thermal ...


  • HycycleS: a project on nuclear and solar hydrogen production by sulphur-based thermochemical cycles

    The European FP7 project HycycleS focuses on providing detailed solutions for the design of specific key components for sulphur-based thermochemical cycles for hydrogen production. The key components necessary for the high temperature part of those processes, the thermal decomposition of H2SO4, are a compact heat exchanger for SO3 decomposition for operation by solar and nuclear heat, a ...

  • Gypsum Board in Fire — Modeling and Experimental Validation

    The thermal behavior of a commercially widespread gypsum board (810 kg/m 3) under fire condition has been investigated. For this purpose two 12 mm thick gypsum boards are subjected to the standard fire ISO 834 and the temperature distribution within them is measured by means of thermocouples placed at different depths in the samples. The results hereof are used to validate a numerical model based ...

  • Synthesis and modification of calcium carbonate nano–particles via reverse micro–emulsion method

    Two reverse microemulsion system of surfactants (Span®80 and Tween®80)/Toluene/water was selected for synthesis of CaCO3 nano–particles. CaCO3 particles synthesised were surface modified by stearic acid. The effect of different concentrations of surfactants ...

  • Synthesis of nano grade ?–ferric oxide and evaluation of its catalytic properties

    Ferric oxide is a well–known catalyst for the thermal decomposition of ammonium perchlorate and hence it is extensively used as ballistic modifier for ammonium perchlorate based composite solid propellants. The particle size of conventional propellant grade ferric oxide was reduced to nano levels by continuous ball milling using a planetary ball mill employing zircon balls in isopropyl alcohol. ...

  • Novel silver nanoparticles: synthesis, properties and applications

    In this paper, we present versatile and effective techniques to synthesise silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs)-based compounds such as colloidal silver nanoparticles (CSNPs) and silver nanoparticles powders (SNPPs). The CSNPs stabilised by a surfactant oleic acid were produced for the first time through the reduction of [Ag(NH3)2]+ ...

  • Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) - Case Study

    Example: Uranium enrichment Similar tasks: Nitric acid caprolactam production When uranium ore is converted into uranium hexafluoride (UF6) for uranium enrichment employing the diffusion process, or also when producing nitric acid and nitrogenous fertilizers for farming, laughing gas is produced by several undesirable side reactions. Thermal decomposition ...
