Analytical and Numerical Modeling of CO2 Sequestration in Deep Saline Aquifers

Ozgur, E.
Gumrah, F.
The analytical and numerical modeling of CO2 sequestration in deep saline aquifers having different rock and fluid properties was studied under diffusion and convection mechanisms. In a diffusion dominated system, an aquifer with 100 m thickness was saturated with CO2 after 10,000,000 years. It was much earlier in a convective dominant system. In the diffusion process, the dissolution of CO2 in aquifer increased with porosity increase; however, in a convection dominant process dissolution of CO2 in aquifer decreased with porosity increase. The increase in permeability accelerated the dissolution of CO2 in aquifer significantly, which was due to increasing velocity. The dissolution process in the aquifer was realized faster for the aquifers with lower dispersivity. The results of convective dominant mechanism in aquifers with 1 md and 10 md permeability values were close to that of the diffusion dominated system. For the aquifer having permeability higher than 10 md, the convection mechanism began to dominate gradually and it became a fully convection dominated system for 50 md and higher permeability values. These results were also verified with calculated Rayleigh numbers.


Parametric Study of Carbon Dioxide Sequestration in Deep Saline Aquifers
Basbug, B.; Gumrah, F. (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
CO2 sequestration in a deep saline aquifer was simulated using a compositional commercial simulator based on a single-well aquifer model, which was developed to analyze the injection and storage process of CO2 under supercritical and gaseous conditions for long periods of time. The influence of controlling parameters including vertical to horizontal permeability ratio, aquifer pressure, injection rate on the isothermal injection, and sequestration processes were investigated and the sensitivity analysis cor...
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...
Photogalvanic effect in aqueous Methylene blue nickel mesh systems: Conversion of light into electricity
Bayer, IS; Eroğlu, İnci; Turker, L (Wiley, 2001-03-10)
The photogalvanic effect in electrochemical cells, employing aqueous Methylene blue and Fe(II)/Fe(III) couple electrolyte and nickel-mesh electrodes, were experimentally investigated. Five different standard H-cell configurations were set-up by modifying the electrolyte. Long-term open-circuit Voltage measurements were conducted in order to test the stability of the cells. Light on-off reproducibility experiments were also carried out during lengthy cell operations. By comparing experimental quantum yield w...
Development and characterization of layered Li(NixMnyCo1-x-y)O-2 cathode materials for lithium ion batteries
Piskin, Berke; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri (Elsevier BV, 2016-06-22)
The structure of the layered Li(NixMnyCo1-x-y)O-2 in different amounts of x and y ranging between 0.2 and 0.6, have been synthesized and investigated by powder X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy techniques. In the current work spray pyrolysis was used to obtain spherical fine-sized morphology followed by heat treatment to obtain better electrochemical activity. The precursor powders were prepared using aqueous solution via spray pyrolysis. Synthesized samples were then heat treated at 850 degrees C. ...

Budak, Yagmur; DEVRİM, YILSER (Elsevier BV, 2019-01-01)
In this study, we investigated the comparative analysis of a solar-fuel cell hybrid system based on water and methanol electrolysis. The proposed system comprises PV, electrolyzer and proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC). The hybrid system is designed to supply the hydrogen (H-2) needed of the PEMFC system and also to fulfill the H-2 requirement of other applications. The actual data of solar irradiation of Izmir, Turkey are used in the simulation. The methanol and water electrolyzers were designed fo...
