Waste Plastics Management

Catalytic Conversion of Plastic Wastes into Middle Distillate Products: In this project Petrotex analyzed catalytic conversion of waste plastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene into oil and middle distillate products. The proportion of plastics mixture was based on United States plastic production rates. In this process, the novel catalyst, made in the Research Center, was applied. The catalyst is a zeolite format that yields interesting results in producing benzene and gasoline due to its complex mixture of heavy metals and the way it is produced. This study was conducted to obtain synthetic parameters of a semi-industrial plant designing and construction…

Sulfur Dioxide Reduction Research Established in Petrotex

Petrotex amino compound absorber  has proved to be a strong solvent; it has brought innovations as SO2 absorber in this research. The amine that was used is a selective absorber that absorbs SO2 selectively. CO2 gas, a competitor contamination with SO2 in flue gases, does not interfere with the absorption process.  In the process, SO2 is eliminated at ppm levels, while CO2 remains untouched. Another important feature of the solvent is that its flow rates as well as concentration in the process are lower than the usual absorbers while the performance is the same, if not better. Read More

CrossRef Anual Resolutions Report

CrossRef has announced Petrotex society’s top ten articles that were resolutions, downloaded the most in 2013. CrossRef has created a system to automatically email publishers statistics on the number of DOI resolutions through the DOI proxy server on a month-by-month basis. These numbers give an indication of the use of DOIs and the traffic coming to site from users clicking DOIs. Read More
