Optimal processing route for the utilization and conversion of municipal solid waste into energy and valuable products
A systematic design of municipal solid waste (MSW) management system can lead to identify a promising and/or sustainable way of handling MSW by processing it into energy and valuable products. In this study, a systematic ...
Multi-products productions from Malaysian oil palm empty fruit bunch (EFB): Analyzing economic potentials from the optimal biomass supply chain
The economic potentials of Malaysian oil palm empty fruit bunch are realized by several motivating factors such as abundance, cheapness and are generally feasible to produce multi-products that range from energy, chemicals ...
Design and simulation of a petcoke gasification polygeneration plant integrated with a bitumen extraction and upgrading facility and net energy analysis
The in-situ extraction of bitumen from oil sands, particularly steam assisted gravity drainage, has been the fastest growing production technology in the industry. Integrated with upgrading operations to enhance the fuel ...
New composite sustainability indices for Cradle-to-Cradle process design: Case study on thinner recovery from waste paint in auto industries
In a conventional chemical process design, the main focus is on the process economy resulting in the generation of huge amounts of waste materials within the process. Such design approach demands end-of-pipe treatment, ...
Pyrolysis, kinetics analysis, thermodynamics parameters and reaction mechanism of Typha latifolia to evaluate its bioenergy potential
This work was focused on understanding the pyrolysis of Typha latifolia. Kinetics, thermodynamics parameters and pyrolysis reaction mechanism were studied using thermogravimetric data. Based on activation energies and ...
A systematic approach for modeling of waterflooding process in the presence of geological uncertainties in oil reservoirs
In this paper, a systematic approach which is able to consider different types of geological uncertainty is presented to model the waterflooding process. The proposed scheme, which is based on control and system theories, ...
