Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology A: Chemistry | Year: 2012
The current eight published ISO standards associated with semiconductor photocatalysis are considered. These standards cover: (1) air purification (specifically, the removal of NO, acetaldehyde and toluene), (2) water purification (the photobleaching of methylene blue and oxidation of DMSO) (3) self-cleaning surfaces (the removal of oleic acid and subsequent change in water droplet contact angle), (4) photosterilisation (specifically probing the antibacterial action of semiconductor photocatalyst films) and (5) UV light sources for semiconductor photocatalytic ISO work. For each standard, the background is first considered, followed by a brief discussion of the standard particulars and concluding in a discussion of the pros and cons of the standard, with often recommendations for their improvement. Other possible standards for the future which would either compliment or enhance the current ones are discussed briefly. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Heterogeneous catalytic chemistry is used throughout the chemical and petro-chemical industry. In predicting the performance of a reactor, knowing the gases and solids flow dynamics is as important as having good chemical rate expressions. This paper gives the solution of ozone decomposition in a bubbling bed using the CPFD numerical scheme which is a Eulerian-Lagrangian solution method for fluid-solid flows. The ozone decomposition can be described by a single stoichiometric equation and has a first order reaction rate. The ozone decomposition is a standard problem for chemical analysis and has been used to characterize gas-solid contacts in fluidized beds. The accuracy of predicting the ozone decomposition comes from correctly predicting the bed dynamics. The solution in this study is three-dimensional and predicts the coupled motion of both solids and gas. The chemical rate equation uses solids volume fraction, but the numerical method could calculate chemistry on the discrete catalyst, including a variation in size (surface area) if such a rate equation was available. The numerical results compare well with an analytic solution of the decomposition rate, and calculated results compare well with the experiment by Fryer and Potter [Fryer, C. and Potter, O.E, (1976), "Experimental investigation of models for fluidized bed catalytic reactors," AIChE J., 22.]. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.

News Article | February 17, 2017
Production of salt is increasing to meet worldwide demand and many of the new salt production projects due on stream by 2020 will produce salt via solar recovery methods. Solar salt production already accounts for an estimated 40% of salt production worldwide in 2017. Essam Madbouly of Cristal Global and AT Kordy of Egyptian Salt and Minerals (EMISAL) will be talking about new investments in solar salt production at a conference organised by Roskill, a leader in a leader in international metals and minerals research: Roskill's Salt 2017 conference takes place March 28 to 29 at the Renaissance hotel in Dusseldorf, Germany. Historically, Germany served as a centre for European salt trade, and today this industry is still served worldwide by maritime dry bulk shipping. Denny Sabah of Maritime Strategies International will be giving his perspective on salt and dry bulk shipping market trends and outlook on the first day at the conference, in a session which will also include insights from Robert van Muiden of Rotterdam Bulk Logistics and Hugo du Mez of the Port of Rotterdam Authority. In 2016 there was significant growth in international salt trade, driven by low transportation rates following the collapse of the shipping industry since the global recession of 2008/09. Increased investment by salt producers in new sources of cost effective production will underpin growth in the chloralkali sector in Asia. Growth in salt consumption has been particularly strong in China, which is a net importer of salt despite its position as the largest salt producing country in the world. Competition within the salt industry, particularly over the lucrative and sporadic road de-icing market will continue to affect market shares. Graham Clarke, Operations Director of new entrant to the market, Sirius Minerals, will be describing at Salt 2017 how his company plans to take advantage of this market for salt. Per Nygaard, International Principal Manager for salt at Azelis, a leading de-icing salt distributor, will elaborate on how the de-icing salt supply chain works in Europe. According to Roskill, world salt revenues have achieved a steady annual average growth rate to 2017, despite the slowdown in chloralkali markets in recent years. The strongest regional growth in the medium term will continue to be in Asia, but the more mature markets of NAFTA and Europe are also growing. At the conference Roskill will aim to put raw material, regulatory and technology developments within the salt industry into context. The 15th edition of Roskill's global salt report, Salt 2016 Global Industry Markets & Outlook, was published in late 2016. Roskill reviewed the production plans of more than 300 salt production assets worldwide during the research for its 2016 report. Germany's K+S has retained its position as the largest producer in the world, fending off a hostile takeover bid and announcing two major expansion projects during 2015/16. As the cost of shipping salt across oceans has fallen, traditional European salt producers are finding that they have to compete with new suppliers from as far away as Australia, Mexico and Chile. Wouter Lox of EuSalt - the European salt producers' association, will be speaking at the conference about the regulatory and legal challenges that European salt producers face in 2016. Vladimir Sedivy, the President of Salt Partners, a Swiss engineering consultancy, will present a paper in the same session on what drives the salt and chloralkali industry in Europe. Chloralkali production is the largest end-use for salt. Chlorine is the raw material for the production of numerous organic chlorine compounds, the most important of which in terms of volume is ethylene dichloride, a chemical precursor to the 46Mtpy commodity polymer, PVC. Dr Jason Leadbitter of Inovyn Chlorvinyl will update delegates on Inovyn's sustainability programme for salt in PVC manufacture. Caustic soda also has a very wide range of end-uses including alumina manufacture, pulp and paper production, and chemical processing. Synthetic soda ash production is the next largest end-use for salt, and this in turn is mainly consumed in glass applications. Dr Henry Lau of Shihlien Chemical Industrial Jiangsu, a major Chinese soda ash producer, will be describing his company's new 300ktpy pharmaceutical grade salt facility at Salt 2017. Another major Asian chloralkali producer, Aditya Birla, will be putting forward an Indian perspective on chloralkali trends. The USA remained by far the largest destination for salt shipments in 2016. Chile remained the main supplier to the USA in 2016, supplying an estimated 4.5Mt, mainly for road de-icing applications. Australian salt exports in 2016 were an estimated 8.5Mt, maintaining its longstanding position as the world's largest salt exporter. However, this total was down on exports in 2015. Australian producers export salt to Japan, China, South Korea and Indonesia for use in the chemicals industry. This decrease in salt shipments from Australia to Asia during 2016 was partly due to increased competition from Indian exports. Between 2010 and 2015, Indian salt exports to China increased from 0.4Mt to 2.3Mt, averaging 42% py growth. Devsalt, a major Indian producer of solar salt, will be describing the current status of the Indian salt industry in 2017 at the conference and explaining how Indian producers have achieved such spectacular growth in exports. Long distance trade is a critical topic for the salt industry and this conference brings together salt producers, specifiers, traders, end-users and equipment manufacturers from every continent. The Roskill conference provides an international forum to debate the current technical issues and market developments (www.roskill.com). As low shipping rates facilitate the movement of salt as never before, these industry players need a regular opportunity to meet and discuss business. https://roskill.com/salt2017/

Applied Catalysis A: General | Year: 2011
In order to meet impending regulations for soot and NOx reduction from mobile diesel engines, advanced emission control systems may require SCR catalysts with substantially improved thermal durability. State of the art vanadia-based SCR catalysts are composed of vanadia, tungsta, and possibly silica, present at relatively low mass fraction and supported on high-surface-area titania. Concern over the possible emission of metals such as vanadia from diesel vehicles fitted with vanadia-based catalysts limits their potential utility. Vanadia and tungsta oxide and hydroxide vapor pressures over the bulk oxides under conditions relevant for the simulated lifetime exposure of catalysts in the mobile SCR application were estimated on the basis of literature data, and the vapor pressures can be consequential. For the bulk tungsta and vanadia, the most volatile component is WO2(OH) 2, formed from the reaction of tungsta with water, followed by V 4O10 and then VO(OH)3, also a reaction product. An experimental method was developed to measure the vapor-phase transport (a manifestation of vapor pressure) of such inorganic components over real catalysts in representative gas streams by collection on high-surface-area alumina at exposure temperature. In the absence of water at 750 °C, only V4O10 was anticipated as the volatile species. However, no V was observed downstream of the catalyst, so that the vapor pressure of titania-supported vanadia was strongly suppressed relative to the bulk oxide. In the presence of water, the results depended on the support. In the case of a support that underwent substantial loss of surface area during exposure, amounts of W were collected consistent with equilibrium vaporization as WO 2(OH)2. However, the amounts of V collected were below the amount expected based on equilibrium vaporization as either V4O 10 or VO(OH)3. Thus, the reaction of titania-supported vanadia with water at high temperatures was also suppressed. The vapor pressures of the vanadia and tungsta, and the extent of their reaction with water, can be reduced by varying degrees by reducing loss of the surface area of the titania support during exposure and by minimizing the mass fractions of the surficial oxides. New, highly stable titania supports with optimized compositions were found to virtually eliminate the loss of vanadia and tungsta. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Cristal Global has developed CristalACTiV, an environmentally friendly ultra-fine TiO2 photocatalytic technology that can be added to paint, coatings and building materials or simply sprayed on surfaces on its own given its active non-pigmenting and odorless properties. UltrafineTiO2 CristalACTiV particles use UV energy from the sun or artificial lighting to break down pollution. The photocatalytic chemical reaction happens at the molecular level when polluting substances come into contact with a treated surface. The combination of a tiny amount of water, sunlight and CristalACTiV breaks the molecular bonds of sulphur oxides, nitrogen oxides, VOCs and other substances produced during combustion or that are released in the atmosphere. CristalACTiV surfaces will draw dramatic volumes of NOx out of the air, effectively eliminating pollution. It has anti-bacterial properties and enough durability.
