Polyazacrown-based Materials for Mercury Capture

Executive Summary Coal burning plants emit significant amounts of mercury to the environment, which is harmful to humans. A variety of processes are currently used to mitigate mercury emissions, but there is a need for more effective approaches. MSU researchers have developed a new polymer and method of synthesis for binding to mercury ions and removing...

Efficient Hydrocyclone for Liquid-Liquid Separation

Executive SummaryDue to environmental concerns, discharge of water from oil and gas industries is required to maintain oil levels between 10 – 30 ppm. Complying with these standards leads to significant expenses for the industry. A new hydrocyclone design developed at MSU makes it possible to exceed these requirements while being much more cost-effective...

Dual Affinity Membrane Hydrocyclone for Simultaneous Water Purification and Oil Recovery from Produced Water

Introduction A large amount of contaminated waste water is generated from wellheads at offshore platforms during oil and gas productions. These heavily oil-contaminated waters cannot be discharged directly back into the environment and are currently purified by a number of expensive separation techniques. Effective separation of waste water into...
