IS-BILAT-Mobilitet Norge-USA /Canada

Upgrading and Characterisation of Heavy Oils. Overseas Fellowship - The University Alberta, Canada.

Heavy oil is a generic term including heavy crudes, residues, synthetic crude oils from coal, products from shale oil and tar sand production, and similar oils. The heavy oils have properties that make them difficult to process, these being high densities , high boiling points, high molecular wei...

F-KJEM-Naturvitenskap, kjemi

Operation of chemical plants in unstable operating regions

I prosjektet skal vi se på muligeten til å bruke tilbakekoblingsprinsippet til å operere kjemiske prosesser i nye og bedre driftspunkter. Vi tror prosjektet har meget stort potensiale. <.zeta.>rsaken til dette er at man tradisjonelt i kjemisk (og annen) i ndustriikke har forståelse for at man med...

KOSK-Katalyse og organisk syntetisk kjemi

Isomerization of light alkanes catalyzed by sulfated zirconia and conventional catalysts

The project focuses on catalyst development for isomerization catalysts. The economic utilization of light hydrocarbons like butanes, pentanes and hexanes found in natural gas liquids depends to a large extent on producing the skeletal isomers of these co mpounds since the value of the straight-c...
