CO2 flooding is a widely used enhanced oil recovery (EOR) method (Jarrell et al., 2002). Dimethyl ether (DME) is potentially a good solvent and has good compatibility with both CO2 and hydrocarbons (Catchpole et al., 2009; Ratnakar et al., 2016a). Due to the good solubility of DME in both CO2 and...
Two-Dimensional Modeling of the Effect of Relative Humidity on Volatile Organic Compounds Adsorption in a Fixed Bed AdsorberDownload
Water vapor can affect adsorption of volatile organic compound (VOC) onto activated carbon. In this research, a two-dimensional heterogenous computational fluid dynamics model was developed and validated to understand the mechanism and kinetics during competitive adsorption between VOC and water...
In this research two-dimensional mathematical models were developed to study adsorption of single component volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and competitive adsorption of n-component mixtures of VOCs from dilute gas streams in a fixed-bed adsorber. The models consist of the macroscopic mass,...
The remediation of oil sands wastes such as fluid fine tailings (FFT) and oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) are of increasing concern in the oil sands industry. End pit lakes are one remediation option currently being researched at commercial scale in Base Mine Lake (BML) operated by...
Geological uncertainty is a major source of risk in resource projects and must be characterized. Extensive research has been undertaken in the development of sophisticated techniques given the economic impact of this uncertainty. The Hierarchical Truncated PluriGaussian (HTPG) simulation is...
Research was conducted into using supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) for removing hydrocarbons from drill cuttings slurries, which will be used in a pilot-scale continuous SFE system currently under development. A laboratory-scale batch SFE system employing supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2)...
