Novel approaches for the production of fuels and chemicals in Escherichia coli
Volatility of oil prices along with major concerns about climate change, oil supply security and depleting reserves have sparked renewed interest in the production of biofuels and biochemicals. While the carbohydrate portion ...
Effect of oils, soap and hardness on the stability of foams
A systematic study of foam stability in the presence of model nonpolar oils and their mixtures with oleic acid was conducted for two commonly used surfactants (anionic and nonionic) under neutral and alkaline conditions ...
Towards Adaptive Resolution Modeling of Biomolecular Systems in their Environment
Water plays a critical role in the function and structure of biological systems. Current techniques to study biologically relevant events that span many length and time scales are limited by the prohibitive computational ...
Hydrodynamic mechanisms of cell damage in microcarrier bioreactors
A stirred microcarrier bioreactor contains a variety of local fluid dynamic environments, including isotropic turbulence, boundary layers, and vortices trailing from the impeller blades, all of which are superimposed on a ...
A new simplified compositional simulator
A new simplified fully implicit compositional simulator has been developed. This simulator is different from existing models because it combines the conventional black oil equations with a compositional injection component ...
OXIDATIVE DEHYDROGENATION OF BUTENES OVER MANGANESE FERRITE
Butene oxidative dehydrogenation (OXD) on a manganese iron oxide catalyst was studied in batch recirculation and microcatalytic pulse reactors at temperatures between 300C and 400C. Mechanistic features of the reaction ...
DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CONFORMAL SOLUTION THEORY
This research develops a theoretically based corresponding states procedure which predicts mixture properties accurately. This procedure separates any dimensionless residual thermodynamic property into two parts: One part ...
Sustainable Production of Biofuels: Plant Optimization and Environmental Impact
Many recent studies on the relative costs and benefits of biofuels have raised the need for a detailed and rigorous analysis of the operations of a biorefinery that is focused on optimization. The current thesis concentrates ...
