Stephen Harrison talks to Anurag Dhumal MSc in engineering and energy technology. This short discussion looks at questions like: What is dry methane reforming? What is the difference between dry methane reforming and steam supported dry methane reforming? What catalysts are used in the processes you described, are they the same or similar? During Dry methane reforming, how does one protect the catalyst? How does the carbon build up get suppressed? What levels of steam are used i...

Stephen Harrison talks to Xavier d’Hubert about decarbonising cement production. CO2 emissions come from 3 main sources, across these three areas, how can we decarbonise? What can be done to mitigate CO2 emission during the calcination reaction? Can we make the carbon capture easy and cost effective in cement production? What is the oxygen concentration at the burner, where would the oxygen come from?

Stephen Harrison talks to Xavier d’Hubert about decarbonising cement production and the three main sources of the CO2 production. This short question and answer session answers questions given to Xavier, like: Where do the CO2 emissions come from in the production of cement? What can be done inside the plant to improve energy efficiency? Do you see any plants hooked up to renewable energy?

Be it turbines, heavy equipment, or any other kind of machinery - monitoring hydraulic and lube oils is critical for performance and to prevent premature wear. In this eLearning session we focus on titration, near-infrared spectroscopy and voltammetry and their potential to increase efficiency of oil condition monitoring. Utilizing these methods, critical chemical and physical parameters can be determined in large sample series completely unattended for faster analysis, higher throughput and...

Precision, accuracy and robustness are key words and essential parameters to determine the effectiveness of any analytical application. Surveyors, refinery, and QC labs must determine the Nitrogen and Sulfur content with fewer personnel while the number of samples keep increasing and the time to report is under pressure. Moreover, all these analyses must be done in compliance with a variety of test methods, such as the ASTM D5453, ASTMD4629 and ASTM D6667. All these factors are pressing on...

Stephen B. Harrison talks to Andres Saldivia business development manager at Hysytech to discuss hydrogen generation from natural gas or biomethane. Stephen's questions include: What purity in hydrogen are you able to achieve? Can this gas be used directly in fuel cells? Natural gas used, does this need to be high pressure or from the normal grid? Is the result a "green element"?

Stephen talks to Philip Bell the hydrogen champion for Aberdeen city. This 5 minute interview includes questions on; The conference centre in Aberdeen The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA) uses fuel cells, for heat and power, how does this work? The fuel cells are supplied by biogas, methane, can you tell us more Philip? Can you tell us about the Clover Hill building project of 550 houses running on biogas? Who will look after all of these systems in Aberdeen? Will the MSc Course in...
