Retention of SO2 emission of coal combustion by using lime in briquetting

Altun, Naci Emre
Bagci, AS
In this study, the effect of lime on control of SO2 emissions was investigated by briquetting of coal particles with various lime contents. The influence of the added lime was determined not only from the view of its contribution to environmental aspects but also in terms of effects on the thermal features and reaction kinetics of coal. The extent of improvement was determined by detailed sulfur analysis. Thermal qualification and reaction kinetics of the coal briquettes with varying lime contents were performed by evolved gas analysis and its complementing kinetic model based on Arrhenius principles. At the end of experiments, utilization of lime was seen to contribute considerably to desulfurization process. However, lime addition had an adverse effect both on the effectiveness of combustion and the liability of the coal briquettes to oxidize.


Modeling of CO2 storage in an oil reservoir
Gumrah, F.; Dulger, M.; Gunaydin, D.; Senel, O. (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
This study provides an overview for the carbon dioxide sequestration process in an oil reservoir by using the software CMG's GEM. Different scenarios are applied for the oil reservoir description. Firstly, a single layered reservoir is considered and simulation studies are performed, as this reservoir is homogeneous, heterogeneous and fractured. Secondly, a multi-layered reservoir is examined. In the second case, a heterogeneous system and a heterogeneous system composed of homogenous layers are selected. F...
Diffusive and Convective Mechanisms during CO2 Sequestration in Aquifers
Ozgur, E.; Gumrah, F. (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
CO2 emissions originated from industrial sources can be captured, transported, and stored in depleted gas/oil fields and deep saline aquifers. The transport mechanisms, occurred during CO2 sequestration in deep saline aquifers, are examined in this study. After injecting CO2 until the tolerable pressure for the aquifer is reached, the wells are closed and CO2 is deposited as free gas and soluble gas in water under the sealing rock. During injection and waiting periods, the concentration profile of CO2 withi...
Effects of minerals on steam distillation during thermal heavy-oil recovery: An experimental investigation
Osgouei, Yashar Tavakkoli; Parlaktuna, Mahmut (Informa UK Limited, 2018-01-01)
An experimental study was carried out to investigate the role of various clay and non-clay minerals present in reservoir formations on steam distillation process. Dead oil samples (100 g) of two heavy oil reservoirs with 30 g of water and 10 g of crushed rock mixed with different clay minerals were kept under steam pressure with 150, 200, and 250 degrees C in a batch autoclave reactor for a period of 40 hours, and the results were compared with respect to the changes in the density, viscosity and chemical c...
Characterization of lignocellulose biomass and model compounds by thermogravimetry
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
In this research, combustion characteristics of lignocellulose biomass (hazelnut shell) and three main components (cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin) were investigated using thermogravimetry (TGA-DTG) technique at different heating rates. The ignition, peak, burn-out temperatures, and the heat liberation of lignocellulose biomass and three main components were also measured. Two different model-free kinetic methods, known as Ozawa-Flynn-Wall (OFW) and Kissinger-Akahira-Sunose (KAS), were used in order to...
Kinetics of hydrogen generation from hydrolysis of sodium borohydride on Pt/C catalyst in a flow reactor
Boran, Asli; Erkan, Serdar; Özkar, Saim; Eroglu, Inci (Wiley, 2013-04-01)
Here, we report the results of a kinetic study on the hydrogen generation from the catalytic hydrolysis of sodium borohydride in a differential flow reactor. As catalyst platinum supported on carbon (Pt/C) was used in two forms: either as powder or coated on carbon cloth. For optimization of the system several parameters such as sodium hydroxide concentration, sodium borohydride concentration and the flow rate of the feed solution were varied. It was found that the H2 generation rate increases with an incre...
