Operation of a 25 KWth Calcium Looping Pilot-plant with High Oxygen Concentrations in the Calciner María Erans1, Michal Jeremias1, Vasilije Manovic1, Edward J. Anthony1 1Combustion and CCS Centre, Cranfield University This manuscript describes a procedure for operating a calcium looping pilot-plant for post-combustion carbon capture with high oxygen concentrations in the calciner in order to reduce or eliminate the flue gas recycle.
Two-way Valorization of Blast Furnace Slag: Synthesis of Precipitated Calcium Carbonate and Zeolitic Heavy Metal Adsorbent Evangelos Georgakopoulos1, Rafael M. Santos2, Yi Wai Chiang3, Vasilije Manovic4 1Department of Offshore, Process and Energy Engineering, Cranfield University, 2School of Applied Chemical and Environmental Sciences, Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, 3School of Engineering, University of Guelph, 4Carbon Systems Engineering, Centre for Combustion, Carbon Capture and Storage, Cranfield University A protocol for the parallel production of precipitated calcium carbonate and zeolitic material from blast furnace slag via mineral carbonation and alkaline hydrothermal conversion, respectively, is presented. The performance of the zeolitic material towards nickel adsorption is tested.
Encapsulation of Cancer Therapeutic Agent Dacarbazine Using Nanostructured Lipid Carrier Musallam Almoussalam1, Huijun Zhu1 1Institute of Environment, Health, Risks and Futures, Cranfield University The most commonly used method for nanostructured lipid carrier (NLC) synthesis involves oil-in-water emulsion, homogenization and solidification. This was modified here by applying high shear dispersion after solidification to achieve a NLC with desirable size, improved drug encapsulation and drug loading efficiency as a potential carrier for dacarbazine delivery.
