A Model Study on Water Soluble Polymeric Nanofibers for Rapid Flocculation and Enhanced Dewatering of Fine Oil Sands Tailings Simulated Through KaolinDownload
Nanofibers are fibers with diameters lower than 100 nm, traditionally made from natural or synthetic polymers. Properties of nanofibers, such as low density, controllable surface functionality, and high surface area to volume ratio, allowed researchers to use them in a multitude of applications...
Interfacial properties have a regulatory role in processes which involve the coexistence of different phases. Although such macro-scale properties are determined by the intrinsic nature of the interface-sharing phases, it is possible to alter them in favor of the process objectives. This,...
The demand for a new solvent to treat oilsands was behind the purpose of this project; molecular dynamics simulation was used in this study. Supercritical water, supercritical carbon dioxide and other selected organic solvents in their supercritical state were studied. Meso-tetraphenyl porphyrin...
A NEW APPROACH TO MODEL FRICTION LOSSES IN THE WATER-ASSISTED PIPELINE TRANSPORTATION OF HEAVY OIL AND BITUMENDownload
Water lubricated pipe flow technology is an economic alternative for the long distance transportation of viscous oils like heavy oil and bitumen. The lubricated flow regime involves an oil-rich core surrounded by a turbulent water annulus. Energy consumption associated with this type of pipeline...
A Novel Approach to Delay Thermal and Autoxidative Fouling Caused by Aromatics in Heavy oil and Petrochemicals Using Tetrahydrofurfuryl AlcoholDownload
Tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol (THFA) is a widely used solvent. It is a preferred solvent since it is derived from biomass. Multiple patents have reported that adding THFA during heavy oil processing improves the efficiency of the process and increases the yield. One patent for instance reported that...
Polyolefins are the largest class of commodity polymers. Polyethylene and polypropylene are the most common commercial types of these polymers. The former accounts for nearly one-third of the world polymer market and it is predicted that its demand will keep growing in the foreseeable future....
A cationic thermal sensitive polymer, polyN-isopropylacrylamide-co-N-[3-(Dimethylamino)propyl]methacrylamide (CP) of different molar ratios, known as CP05 and CP10 was synthesized in-house. By doping aluminum hydroxide (Al(OH)3) colloids into CP during the polymerization process, a novel hybrid...
A Novel Method of Obtaining Cell Membrane Permeability Parameters Using Non-Ideal Thermodynamic AssumptionsDownload
Cryopreservation is the storage of biological matter at subzero temperatures to preserve it. As one can imagine, this comes with many challenges, including exposure to high solute concentrations as pure water in the extracellular solution freezes, cell dehydration as the intracellular water...
A Preliminary Study on Pyrolysis and Gasification of Asphaltenes and Coal-Asphaltenes Slurry in Entrained Flow ReactorDownload
The aim of this work is to study pyrolysis of coal-asphaltenes slurry in an atmospheric entrained flow reactor. Athabasca asphaltenes and Genesee coal, both from Alberta in Canada, were selected as the feedstock. Char characteristics and the structure of asphaltenes and slurry chars including...
A Study for Leaching Synthetic Scheelite in H2SO4 And H2O2 Solution: An Investigation and OptimizationDownload
Canada's 2021 Critical Minerals Strategy underscores the prominence of tungsten as a rare and critical element. Today, tungsten production relies on scheelite, categorized as a secondary resource due to its complex ore composition and lower-grade nature. This phenomenon stems from the depletion...
