Corrosion Technology Forum 2018


Maintenance is a part of corrosion management which can be minimized by using better corrosion control technologies. Almost all three technologies viz., protection by coatings, use of cathodic protection and use of chemical inhibitors are being used in chemical industry.

Be the part of Corrosion Technology Forum 2018 On June 7th and 8th in Bengaluru. Find more information of speakers here: Corrosion Technology Forum 2018

ExxonMobil, BASF to jointly develop gas processing technologies


ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing LLC and BASF Corporation have signed an alliance agreement to jointly develop new gas treating solvents and process technologies. For use in natural gas processing and petroleum refining. Under this new agreement, BASF will market, and license technologies developed from this collaboration, along with FLEXSORBTM and OASE technologies. ExxonMobil has been offering its unique selective gas processing technology under the FLEXSORB brand since 1983, including the proprietary FLEXSORB SE and FLEXSORB SE PLUS solvents. Read more

 

The flavour of an e-cigarette may affect more than a consumer’s taste buds, according to Penn State researchers who say the chemicals that make up different flavours also produce different levels of free radicals, toxins often associated with cancer and other diseases. The researchers analyzed popular e-cigarette flavours and the number of free radicals they produced and found that many of the chemicals used to flavour e-cigarettes increased the production of free radicals, while a few actually lowered it.

Emissions of one of the chemicals that can cause a hole in the ozone layer are on the rise, despite an international treaty that required an end to its production in 2010, a new study says. What is even more troubling is that scientists are not sure at present why emissions of this gas are increasing. This gas, Trichlorofluoromethane, or CFC-11, is a member of the family of chemicals most responsible for the giant hole in the ozone layer that forms over Antarctica each September. Once widely used as a foaming agent, production of CFC-11 was phased out by the Montreal Protocol in 2010. Read more

 

West Virginia University researchers are leading commercial-scale research and development of two new innovations at the country’s most efficient coal-fired power plant in Maidsville. The devices, a corrosion sensor invented at WVU and a gas sensor invented at Los Alamos National Laboratory, could make coal combustion more efficient with fewer emissions and fewer unplanned outages saving millions of dollars. The WVU Electrochemical Systems Research Center, directed by Xingbo Liu, plans to conduct experiments of the sensors at Longview Power, LLC’s 700 net megawatt power plant under two projects that total $1.8 million.
