Barrick Gold Senior Design Project: Treatment and Removal of Excess Lixivants from the Tailings Water of Two Parallel Gold Leaching Circuits
The following project was completed by a Senior Design team of the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno. The problem statement was given to the team by a representative at ...
Catalytic Conversion of Lignocellulosic Biomass to Carboxylic Acids and Derivatives
The transition from today’s fossil fuel based economy to a sustainable economy that is grounded in renewable biomass is driven by concern of climate change and anticipation of dwindling fossil fuel resources. Biofuel is ...
Heat and Mass Transfer Studies: Sulfur Diffusion in Polyurethane, Polyphenylquinoxaline as a Heat Exchanger Coating and Polypropylene Membrane Contactor for Deaeration of Cyanide Solution
This research studied the heat and mass transfer characteristics of several polymers as applied to different applications. Polyurethane was investigated to determine the mass transport rate of sulfur compounds. Polyurethane ...
Corrosion behavior of Monel 400 and electrochemical performance of Li-Bi reference electrode in molten LiCl-Li2O-Li
Closing the nuclear fuel cycle is an important step to improve the safety, economics, and environmental impact of nuclear power. To integrate the oxide fuels that are used in the current reactor fleet into a metallic fuel ...
Enhancing the photoelectrochemical water splitting characteristics of titanium and tungsten oxide based materials via doping and sensitization
To better utilize solar energy for clean energy production, efforts are needed to overcome the natural diurnal variation and the diffuse nature of sunlight. Photoelectrochemical (PEC) hydrogen generation by water splitting ...
Chemical Design Process for Production of 2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid via a Hydroxymethylfurfural Pathway
The topic of this senior design project was provided by Micromidas Inc. (Sacramento, CA) and was completed under the advisement of the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno. The ...
Separation and Purification of a Monoclonal Antibody for use in Patients Suffering from Wet Macular Degeneration
Novel process designs were created in an effort to optimize the efficiency of monoclonal antibody separation and purification for an industrial process. A base case was established that utilized common protein separation ...
Biomass Pretreatment using Ionic Liquid and Glycerol Mixtures
Lignocellulosic biomass is a renewable, sustainable resource that can replace or supplement fossil fuels use for liquid fuels and chemicals. However, its recalcitrant structure including interwoven cellulose, hemicelluloses, ...
