10 Chemical utilization of sequestered carbon dioxide as a booster of hydrogen economyFor many, hydrogen in a pure hydrogen economy would be like natural gas in today's energy economy. Unfortunately, hydrogen's physical properties are unsuited to the energy market's requirements in terms of packaging, storage, transfer, and delivery. In this paper, a hybrid energy economy that packag...2008-01-01

13 Evaluation of stucco binder for agglomeration in the heap leaching of copper oreIt is known that the presence of excess fines in heap leaching operations may cause low recovery due to reduced heap permeability and/or channeling of lixiviant flow. These problems are mitigated to some extent by agglomeration pretreatment prior to heap leaching. Sulfuric acid leach solution is the...2011-01-01
14 Particle interactions in kaolinite suspensions and corresponding aggregate structuresThe surface charge densities of the silica face surface and the alumina face surface of kaolinite 13 particles, recently determined from surface force measurements using atomic force microscopy, 14 show a distinct dependence on the pH of the system.
