The team conducted a "cost-effective bench-scale testing
chemistry activity" to draw a chemical reaction between CO2 and salt in brine solutions in the presence of ammonia.
During a quick tour of the UBC laboratory in the Clean Energy Research Centre (CERC), Wilkinson points out where bench-scale testing
of the process is taking place and where other clean energy research is in progress.
and the Illinois Clean Coal Institute on bench-scale testing
and eventually will run tests in a 3 MW (thermal power) chemical looping facility.
High grade graphite concentrate grades from bench-scale testing
are repeatable for all three geological horizons of the deposit, representing from surface to the base of current drill coverage at 100 metres depth.
In bench-scale testing
, the unit under test is subjected to well-controlled conditions to determine collection rate, collection efficiency, level of detection, and ability to preserve viable organisms.
The pilot- and bench-scale testing
evaluate the effects of multiple disinfectants and oxidants, the ability of coagulation, granular activated carbon, MIEX resin, and membrane to remove NOM and bromide ion, and their combined impact on DBP formation, nitrification potential, and microbial regrowth.
The university will conduct bench-scale testing
of the ZLD process to study its effectiveness, energy requirements and overall cost per litre of water produced.
The initial bench-scale testing
targeted four VOCs--toluene, xylene, MEK, and n-butyl acetate.
To ensure that RO could be used in this application, Osmonics performed bench-scale testing
, long-term pilot testing, and scale-up to a full-sized on-line RO unit.
Preliminary screening led to bench-scale testing
to evaluate and compare the ability of hypochlorite, ozone, and UV disinfection to meet NPDES discharge and California Title 22 disinfection requirements.
