Preparation, characterization and testing of inorganic ceramic membranes. (2013)
Thesis
OGBUKE, I. 2013. Preparation, characterization and testing of inorganic ceramic membranes. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

A novel approach to enhance the concentration of Carbon dioxide to economic scale using low efficient Inorganic Ceramic membranes has been proposed. This was achieved by the addition of second and third stage permeation trains to the existing low CO2... Read More about Preparation, characterization and testing of inorganic ceramic membranes..

Increasing the temperature stability of environmentally friendly drilling and completion fluids based on organic brine. (2013)
Thesis
KAMINSKI, L. 2013. Increasing the temperature stability of environmentally friendly drilling and completion fluids based on organic brine. Robert Gordon University, MRes thesis.

Formates provide an already superior system, designed to complement synthetic polymers and extend their temperature capabilities as drilling fluids. However, as HPHT drilling continues to move into more harsh environments with expected bottom-hole te...

Directly enhancing the photocatalytic transformation of CO2 and water to renewable fuels. (2013)
Thesis
SKILLEN, N. 2013. Directly enhancing the photocatalytic transformation of CO2 and water to renewable fuels. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The increases in Greenhouse Gas (GHG) concentrations and depletion of hydrocarbon based fuels have become global concerns. As a result, a number of methods are being developed which aim to restrict GHG and to develop alternative fuels from sustainabl...

Modeling multiphase solid transport velocity in long subsea tiebacks: numerical and experimental methods. (2013)
Thesis
BELLO, K.O. 2013. Modeling multiphase solid transport velocity in long subsea tiebacks: numerical and experimental methods. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Transportation of unprocessed multiphase reservoir fluids from deep/ultra-deep offshore through a long subsea tieback/pipeline is inevitable. This form of transportation is complex and requires accurate knowledge of critical transport velocity, flow...
