  • Fueling America --Without Petroleum
    Chemical engineer John Nghiem (left) and research leader Kevin Hicks monitor a new process for converting barley into fuel ethanol. The demand for alternatives to petroleum-based fuels is steadily rising. Corn and soybeans --the dominant feedstocks for ethanol and biodiesel production in the United
  • Sulphur analysis in aromatic and Naphtha hydrocarbon stream of petroleum products and crude oil
    are generally used to detect impurities in aromatic compounds in crude oil and petroleum products in laboratories and online application. * Wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence, WDXRF. Another method used for the elemental analysis in petroleum products is wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence
  • From Lubricants to Packaging Materials: ARS Scientists Just Say "No " to Petroleum
    . Close-up of the additive being placed onto ball bearings before friction test. The additives would provide an alternative to today 's petroleum-based products --and a potentially profitable market for. From Lubricants to Packaging Materials: ARS Scientists Just Say "No " to Petroleum. Share/Bookmark
  • Zein --A Corn Compound With Diverse Valuable Uses
    "), the chief protein in corn, has been commercially available for more than 60 years. In fact, until petroleum nudged it aside, zein was a chief ingredient for making adhesives, varnishes, binders, and films. Today, zein is mainly used in specialty coatings. But now, thanks to renewed interest in biobased
  • Finding Contaminants and Keeping Them Out! (.pdf)
    of these compounds result in. thin slice of refining catalyst from a spent catalyst particle ob-. pollutants which are harmful to the environment. Although. tained from the fluid catalytic cracking process. not the worst offenders, petroleum refineries are considered. a major point source of emissions
  • Biodegradable Lube for Metalworking Operations
    In aluminum rolling mill operations like this one, Alcoa, Inc., tested ARS 's new biobased metalworking fluid and preferred it to the petroleum-based lubricants. A new metalworking fluid derived from soybean oil rather than petroleum is proving a smashing success in trial runs by Alcoa, Inc
  • Biocatalysis: Using Enzymes To Produce New Products
    Just as in the past 50 years, petroleum engineers have improved a process called catalysis or fluidized catalytic cracking to nearly maximize the amount of energy obtainable from a barrel of oil, agricultural scientists may develop biocatalysis to efficiently convert farm commodities
  • Induced Hydraulic Frack Water Remediation
    Induced hydraulic fracturing or hydrofracturing, but often referred to as fracking, is a technique used to release petroleum, natural gas (including shale gas, tight gas, and coal seam gas), or other substances for extraction. This type of fracturing creates fissures in a wellbore drilled
