Description & Coverage
Description:

As regulations push the fossil fuel industry toward increasing standards of eco-friendliness and environmental sustainability, desulfurization (the removal of SO2 from industrial waste byproducts) presents a new and unique challenge that current technology is not equipped to address. Advances in nanotechnology offer exciting new opportunities poised to revolutionize desulfurization processes.

Applying Nanotechnology to the Desulfurization Process in Petroleum Engineering explores recent developments in the field, including the use of nanomaterials for biodesulfurization and hydrodesulfurization. The timely research presented in this volume targets an audience of engineers, researchers, educators as well as students at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Adsorptive Desulfurization
  • Chemical Speciation Analysis
  • Coal Desulfurization
  • Flue Gas Desulfurization
  • Hybrid Materials
  • Nanocomposites
  • Petroleum Desulfurization
Reviews and Testimonials

Editor Tawfik A. Saleh presents readers with a collection of expert contributions on using nanotechnology in the desulfurization of petroleum products. The fourteen contributions that make up the main body of the text cover petroleum desulfurization techniques, hydrodesulfurization for cleaner energy fuels, nanocomposities and hybrid materials for absorptive desulfurization, carbon-based nanomaterials for desulfurization, flue gas desulfurization, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
