How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

I am a Semi-Retired Chemical Engineer with significant experience (40 years) in most Oil Refining and many Alternate fuels Technologies. My primary areas of expertise are Hydrocracking, Hydrotreating, H2 Production, H2 Management, Heavy Oil Upgrading, Aromatics, Gas-to-Liquids (Fischer-Tropsch) and Refinery Profit Improvement. I am familiar with most (probably all) Oil Refinery Processes

A discussion of causes of crude oil compatibility and sedimentation issues observed at several refineries.
Am analysis of GHG emissions from Refineries and the impact ofH2 Management on GHG emmissions
Progress has been made in resolving the thermoelectric contributions to the relaxing EMF of electrolyzed LiKCO/sub 3/-LiAlO/sub 2/ tiles in a study of mass transport in molten carbonate fuel cell electrolytes. The thermoelectric effect is a measurable contribution, but only in the early stages of the relaxation that we have attributed to diffusion....
Progress was made in resolving the thermoelectric contributions to the relaxing electromotive forces (EMF) of electrolyzed LiKCO3-LiAlO2 tiles in a study of mass transport in molten carbonate fuel cell electrolytes. The thermoelectric effect was a measurable contribution, but only in the early stages of the relaxation. Preliminary measurements with...
The early stages (0.1 ..mu..s - 5 sec) of EMF relaxation of a Li/sub 2/CO/sub 3//K/sub 2/CO/sub 3/ electrolysis cell were studied with applied currents of 100 to 700 mA at 582/sup 0/C after electrolysis durations of 1 s, 1, 5, and 10 min, and 1 hr. The short-term EMF decay was delimited into five regimes: the IR drop (0 to 5 ..mu..s), anodic double...
