  • HDPE - A Hydrocarbon Resistant Membrane?

    Most brownfield redevelopment and environmental protection applications require the use of a hydrocarbon resistant membrane.  However, each membrane material will vary in its ability to resist chemical attack and its effectiveness as a barrier to permeation.  It is essential that a barrier material prevents the migration of contaminants, thereby not harming the surrounding environment ...

  • Monitoring Hydrocarbons in Bilge Water

    The Situation Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as garbage may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged water limited ...

  • Are Fines Reducing Your Hydrocarbon Production?

    Although choosing frac sand can reduce completions design cost initially, there can be short-term and long-term issues: Proppant flowback, proppant embedment, and decreased fracture conductivity, in addition to fines, can negatively affect hydrocarbon production. What are fines? Fines are generated by crushing of proppant, by erosion of sand on the fracture face during treatment, ...

  • Hydrocarbon evaporative emissions & control for automotives

    Even the cleanest and most efficient vehicle on the market today still pollutes the air and otherwise damages the environment. Motor vehicles emit several noxious pollutants which vehicle emissions standards are designed to regulate. Vehicles generally emit Hydrocarbons (HC), Carbon monoxide (CO), Nitrogen oxides (NOx) and Fine airborne particulate matter (PM) as pollutants that require control. ...

  • Bioremediation of Volatile Petroleum Hydrocarbons (VPH) and Extractable Petroleum Hydrocarbons (EPH) - Milford

    Objectives of the Case Study Place bioremediation in the overall context of combined remedial actions to achieve site objectives ...

  • Fast bioremediation of a hydrocarbon contaminated site

    The use of bioremediation has been demonstrated to be a very effective treatment technology for a hydrocarbon contaminated site within a month of starting. In addition to selection and preparation of an appropriate microbial inoculum the other key considerations were effective mixing, addition of suitable nutrients and maintenance of soil moisture levels. Careful management of all these ...

  • Ethylene Plant Treatment Hydrocarbon Engineering

    Ethylene is the most commonly produced petrochemical product. The bulk of annual commercial ethylene production is based on thermal cracking of hydrocarbon feedstocks with steam. Usual raw materials for pyrolysis are refinery gas, liquid petroleum gas (LPG), natural gas liquids (NGL), naphtha or gas oil. The production of ethylene is a very complex process, including cracking, cooling, ...

  • Surfactant–enhanced remediation of soils contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons

    An experimental programme was undertaken to reclaim the soils contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons. Two types of locally available soils, clay with low compressibility and poorly graded sand, were chosen for the study. Both the soils were contaminated with varying percentages of used engine oil and gasoline. Anionic surfactant Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate (SDS) was used to reclaim the contaminated ...

  • Remediation of dissolved-phase chlorinated hydrocarbons in fractured bedrock

    At a former chlorinated hydrocarbon chemical transfer facility in Buffalo, NY, an approximately one-year pilot study was implemented under the New York State Superfund program to evaluate the impact of emulsified vegetable oil, in particular, EOS, on a concentration of chlorinated hydrocarbons in the offsite dissolved phase groundwater plume within a fractured bedrock aquifer and, if successful, ...

  • Advances in Optical Techniques for Moisture and Hydrocarbon Detection

    Abstract Every year, the world uses in the region of 100 trillion scf (standard cubic feet) of natural gas (1). All of this gas requires treatment before it enters the pipeline, making natural gas processing a key global industry. Minimization of costs is achieved through optimization of these processes, requiring accurate online measurement of gas composition at multiple points in the ...


  • In Situ electromagnetic heating for hydrocarbon recovery and environmental remediation

    Introduction Thermal recovery methods, as applied in heavy oil and oil sand deposits, and in environmental remediation, have the common objective of accelerating the hydrocarbon recovery process. Raising the temperature of the host formation reduces the oil and bitumen viscosity, and, in environmental remediation, increases vapour pressure. These effects assist in sweeping the substances ...
