The effects of rotational speed, gas flow rate, liquid flow rate, and inlet methanol and 1-butanol concentrations on the removal efficiencies (E) and the absorption rates (N) were explored. The results reveal that the E values of methanol and 1-butanol exceeded 90% under appropriate conditions. When the concentrations of methanol and 1-butanol were identical to 2000 ppmv, the E and N values of methanol and 1-butanol increased with rotational speed and liquid flow rate; however, increasing the gas flow rate increased the N values of methanol and 1-butanol but decreased the E values of methanol and 1-butanol. Also, the total absorption rates under various operating conditions were evaluated. At a given total concentration (2000 ppmv) of methanol and 1-butanol, the total absorption rate increased with rotational speed, gas flow rate, and liquid flow rate. Additionally, increasing the inlet methanol concentration increased the total absorption rate, but increasing the inlet 1-buatanol concentration reduced the total absorption rate at a particular total concentration (2000 ppmv) of methanol and 1-butanol. Comparison with the conventional packed tower demonstrates that mass transfer efficiency in the RPB with blade packing was higher than that in the conventional packed tower. Consequently, the RPB with blade packings would be an excellent absorber for the removal of alkanols from gas streams. (c) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Also the effects of ultrasound and addition of four types of flocculants (aluminium sulfate, Chitosan, ferric chloride, polyaluminium chloride) on mitigation of membrane fouling were studied. The components of the foulants were examined by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) analysis, inductively coupled plasma (ICP) and particle size analyzer (PSA). The FTIR demonstrated that membrane fouling layer is governed by the deposition of organic and inorganic substances composed of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) (proteins, polysaccharides, etc.), hydrocarbon components and inorganic matters. The AFM images of the fouled membrane confirmed the idea of surface coverage as a fouling mechanism. The SEM analysis showed that rod-shape bacterial clusters were one of the contributors to membrane cake layer. The EDX and ICP results showed that Mg, Al, Ca, Na, K and Fe were the major metal elements in the fouling cake. The PSA results indicate that membrane foulants had a much smaller size than mixed liquor suspensions in the MSBR. Fouling mitigation experiments showed that the effect of organic flocculant was more than inorganic chemicals but the overall effects were not significant. Ultrasound could effectively remove the fouling cake from the membrane surface and thus recovered the membrane permeation flux for a long time. (c) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

PV using dense membranes has emerged as a promising new method for water removal from aqueous solutions. The mathematical model commonly used to predict the performance of PV is the resistance-in-series model. In the present study, a comprehensive mathematical model was developed to study the performance of PV. The model is based on solving the conservation equations for water in the membrane module. The conservation equations including continuity and momentum equations were derived and solved numerically using finite element method (FEM). Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technique was applied to solve the model equations. The model was then validated using the experimental data obtained from PV experiments with poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) membrane. The simulation results were in good agreement with the experimental data for different values of feed flow rates and temperatures. The modeling findings also indicated that permeate flux increases with increasing feed flow rate and temperature in the membrane module. The simulation results revealed that the developed model can provide a general simulation of transport in PV. (c) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

The patented technology advance increases selectivity to the target normal isomer resulting in higher conversion of raw materials to the desired product (n-butanol or 2-ethyl hexanol (2-EH) for example), while minimizing capital and production costs. A discussion covers the advantages of high selectivity oxo alcohols technology over conventional low pressure oxo alcohols technology; breakthrough in technology, referred to as LP Oxo SELECTOR 303 technology; track record of improvements; and benefits of the high selectivity technology for butanol, 2-EH, and 2-propylheptanol.

As a consequence of this, enhanced accuracy and security is required for biofuel blending operations, to enable the automotive fuel marketing sector to meet these requirements and future proof their operations. A discussion covers the MID and some of the key issues that are created by the introduction of the latest MID regulations; and the developments that are being driven in biofuels blend control, to facilitate its successful implementation.

Energy demand growth has been exceptionally strong. The The country has respectable reserves of coal, oil and natural gas, and recent finds and high prices have boosted output. India's proved oil reserves are 5.8 billion bbl, and owns 13.8% of Asia's total proved oil reserves. Indian natural gas reserves are estimated at 1.12 trillion cu m. There is a growing interest across India in clean fuels and alternative fuels, including biofuels. A discussion on India's energy markets covers how demand is being met, developments in the coal, natural gas, and oil sectors; refinery capacity, expansion, and throughput; and the growing interest in clean energy and renewable energy sources, e.g., ethanol and biodiesel.
