    ABSTRACT: Advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) are commonly used for treating recalcitrant wastewater with varying degree of efficiency, depending on several operating parameters. In this review, a comparative study among selected AOPs integrated with ultraviolet (UV) (UV/Fenton, UV/H

    ABSTRACT: Most of the oleochemical industries use glycerol as raw material for its adverse commercial applications in various fields. In spite of many available methods to produce glycerol from tallow, hydrolysis is one of the most feasible and widely used methods that draw the attention of doing more research for ensuring the safe operation, production level improvement, and accuracy of the synthesis process. The synthesis using biochemical methods in immobilized packed column lacks fastness compared to that of chemical means, which is enriched with more research problems. To attain inherent safety, improved process control methods need to be designed, which requires the knowledge of transient dynamics and sensitivity analysis of the process. This paper gives a state-of-the-art review of experimental analysis, mathematical modeling, parametric identification, and integrated control systems using sensors, actuators, and respective multiloop controllers for the production of glycerol and fatty acids from tallow fat through chemical/biochemical hydrolysis.

    ABSTRACT: A general review on correlations to evaluate mass transfer coefficients in liquid-liquid was conducted in this work. The mass transfer models can be classified into continuous and dispersed phase coefficients. The effects of drop size and interfacial area on mass transfer coefficient were investigated briefly. Published experimental results for both continuous and dispersed phase mass transfer coefficients through different hydrodynamic conditions were considered and the results were compared. The suitability and drawbacks of these correlations depend on the operating conditions and hydrodynamics. Although the results of these models are reasonably acceptable, they could not properly predict the experimental results over a wide range of designs and operating conditions. Therefore, proper understanding of various factors affecting mass transfer coefficient needs to be further extended.

    ABSTRACT: Polyampholytes are charged macromolecules bearing both anionic and cationic groups along the polymer backbone. Polyampholytes can be synthesized by classic and controlled free radical polymerization, anionic polymerization, and group transfer polymerization (GTP). The aqueous solution behavior of polyampholytes is dictated by columbic interactions between the basic and acidic residues. Polyampholytes show both polyelectrolyte and anti-polyelectrolyte behavior in aqueous media. Factors such as charge density, charge asymmetry (i.e., degree of charge balance), charge spacing and distribution, substrate surface charge, structural conformation, and solution ionic strength are critical parameters. Polyampholytes are interesting for numerous reasons and are used for many technology processes such as water treatment, enhanced oil recovery (EOR), sludge dewatering, papermaking, pigment retention, mineral processing, and flocculation. In the present study, the main structural features, behaviors, mechanisms of interaction, and recent field applications of polyacrylamide (PAM)-based polyampholytes are reviewed.

    ABSTRACT: Research in the use of phase change materials for buildings has successfully shown that use of phase change materials results in savings and the environmentally benign use of premium energy. Research work in thermal comfort using phase change materials needs to be more compatible with other building materials. This article reviews the preparation and utilization of various organic phase change materials investigated by researchers for thermal comfort in buildings. The effect of mixing of different phase change materials and ensuing chemical processes on the melting point and latent heat was reviewed.

    ABSTRACT: Fossil fuels are the major contributors to the emission of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) to the atmosphere, rendering global warming a challenging issue to the researchers and industries. Although natural gas has been recommended as a clean fuel compared to other fossil fuels, geological sources of natural gas are not free of impurities. Economical commercialization of natural gas with high sour gas contents as well as facilitating the geosequestration of sour gases for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) need several environmentally sound and cost-effective gas separation methods. Moreover, stringent restrictions should be drawn to mitigate the unfettered greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere. In the present study, existing low-temperature conventional CO2 capture methods, namely, cryogenic distillation process along with emerging nonconventional and hybrid methods, have been demonstrated. Also, the limitations and operational conditions during the application of these processes have been mentioned. The future prospects of the emerging technologies have been compared with conventional methods. Hybrid cryogenic distillation networks for multiproduct industrial production of different hydrocarbons and CO2 products at higher pressures of 40 bar and above showed promising potentials. A concise classification and summary of innovative emerging technologies along with conventional methods has been presented in this paper for possible future commercial exploitation.
