The topic in focus will be ‘flotation cell froth crowding and launder design,’ and its’ influence on overall performance of a flotation cell. Companies often overlook the importance of crowding and launder design; however, both play a critical role in good metallurgical performance of an individual cell, and therefore the overall performance of the plant. Flotation cells with different duties and in different positions will require different cone and launder configurations; Outotec will explore these options with participants and demonstrate how to identify the correct arrangement in a plant. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
Established CO2 capture technologies such as absorption with amine solvents are associated with significant energetic and economic penalties, reducing power plant efficiency by around 10% points and increasing the cost of electricity production by up to 80%. Dedicated research programmes worldwide have pursued the development of a wide range of innovative, alternative technologies for CO2 capture, largely by addressing the fundamental gas separation step at the heart of post-combustion, pre-combustion or oxyfuel combustion processes. Novel solvents with lower energy requirements than conventional amines, using phase change systems, ionic liquids, enzyme-activation, or non-aqueous solvents, are promising approaches for post-combustion capture. Alternatively, techniques used in other commercial gas separations, including solid sorbents, membranes, and cryogenic separation, have also been developed for carbon capture through extensive materials research and process optimisation. Whilst challenging for post-combustion capture applications, these techniques may be of particular benefit to pre-combustion capture systems where much higher partial pressures of CO2 are available, and integration of the CO2 capture step and water gas shift reaction can be achieved using sorbents or membranes. In oxyfuel combustion, membranes are also an option for efficient oxygen production, but pressurised combustion systems have demonstrated the most potential for efficiency improvements, potentially in combination with novel power cycles which are better-suited to exploiting the altered combustion conditions. Finally, chemical looping combustion is a unique approach to carbon capture which can achieve dramatic energy savings through its inherent avoidance of any gas separation step, and is undergoing significant scale up. This webinar will review these developments in novel capture technologies and highlight the most promising strategies for achieving major cost reductions.
This webinar will give an overview of the analysis tools in Scopus. We will focus on the comprehensive suite of metrics embedded throughout Scopus and how it helps facilitate evaluation and provide a better view of your research interests.
The Internet of Things is becoming a reality, and as a result companies of all shapes and sizes are implementing digital transformation initiatives. This digital transformation begins with a modern data center, built on converged infrastructure, that provides a simple and cost-effective process to both deploy and run IT – supporting core business and next-generation applications.
El tema a presentar será ‘Cómo identificar mejorías en plantas de flotación’, el cual es un tema de énfasis que Outotec pone en práctica alrededor del mundo.
En algunos casos, los diseños de ingeniería y configuraciones de proceso originales pueden disminuir el rendimiento de los procesos en la actualidad; esto debido a cambios en el cuerpo del mineral y cambios a la estrategia operativa del proceso. Estos aspectos serán discutidos con la audiencia, a la vez que se expondrán las áreas clave para obtener mejorías. Para esto se examinará el rol de los componentes clave en los equipos de flotación y los participantes obtendrán una mayor comprensión sobre la influencia que cada uno de estos componentes tiene en el rendimiento en general. La duración de la presentación es de aproximadamente 45 minutos con 15 minutos para preguntas al final.
The topic in focus will be ‘where to identify improvement areas within existing flotation plants,’ something which Outotec is putting into practice worldwide. Original engineering and plant layouts may actually be lowering current performance levels due to changes in the mineral and variations in operating philosophy; these will be discussed with the audience and key areas for potential improvements will be outlined. The role of each of the major components of the flotation machine will be looked at and participants will gain a greater understanding of the influence that each part has on overall performance. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
Kevin Lindstrom, Physical Sciences and Engineering Librarian at the University of British Columbia, will highlight the in-depth engineering environmental research on receding glaciers and rising sea levels. Learn how researchers can use GEOBASE & GeoRef to gain the insights necessary for predicting the drastic climate challenges that are impacting the earth’s sustainability.
Real-time building energy management or BEM is becoming a reality due to advancements in software control and cloud solutions. The use of IoT and subsequently ‘Internet of Everything’ in buildings will alter the competitive landscape, resulting in in new service models and customer-centric propositions. In the highly dynamic buildings industry, market participants need to:
•Understand the top five transformation trends and its implications to the industry
•Address upcoming challenges in visionary trends beyond 2020
This webinar will focus on how to personalize your Scopus experience and make your search more effective. We will also spend a significant portion of the time on basic search and how you can use it to be more efficient in your research.
