  1. 1. Fluid Catalytic Cracking Catalyst Demetallization and Reactivation, Modeling of Catalytic Cracking, and Use of Microwaves to Heat Fluid Beds

    Author : Frank J. Elvin; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; pilot plant; nickel and vanadium deposition; catalyst; reactivation; demetallization; catalytic cracking; and microwave heating; MAT; fluid bed;

    Abstract : The fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCCU), the major conversion unit in an oil refinery, uses a silica-alumina zeolite catalyst to convert heavy hydrocarbons to light hydrocarbons. A small fraction of the catalyst must be continually replaced with fresh catalyst to maintain activity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Deactivation of commercial three-way catalysts: Experimental and theoretical studies

    Author : Anna Fathali; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; car exhaust; three-way catalyst TWC ; alumina; fuel-cut; palladium; hydrocarbon cracking; ceria; deactivation; oxygen storage capacity OSC ; rhodium; zirconia; sintering; monolith catalyst; catalysis;

    Abstract : This PhD thesis is a summary of my work with thermal deactivated commercial three way catalysts (TWCs). An examination of catalytic properties, before and after accelerated aging was performed, such as light-off temperature, specific surface area (BET), noble metal dispersion and oxygen storage capacity was performed.

  3. 3. Alkylate Petrol. Environmental Aspects of Volatile Hydrocarbon Emissions

    Author : Ulf Östermark; [1996]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; hydrocarbons; small engines; alkylate; alkenes; ethene; benzene; 3-butadiene; two-stroke engines; reformulated petrol; reformulated gasoline; 1;

    Abstract : All hydrocarbons emitted from production and use of petrol are hazardous to human health and the environment, but to a different extent for individual compounds. This thesis compares and characterizes C2-C8 hydrocarbons related to alkylate petrol and conventional petrol. READ MORE

  4. 4. Generation of synthesis gas for fuels and chemicals production

    Author : Per Tunå; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Synthetic fuels and chemicals; gasification; gas conditioning; simulation; tar-cracking;

    Abstract : Many scientists believe that the oil production will peak in the near future, if the peak has not already occurred. Peak oil theories and uncertain future oil deliveries have stimulated interest in alternative sources of fuel and chemicals. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mechanics and tribology of micro- and nanolayered PVD coatings

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Urban Wiklund; [1999]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materials science; Materialvetenskap; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap; materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Abstract : Thin coatings produced by physical vapour deposition (PVD) are increasingly applied tomechanical components such as metal cutting tools, forming tools and machine elements.Improved micro- and nanolayered PVD coatings have been studied with respect tomechanical and tribological properties.
