INDUSTRIAL PROJECTS

  • Abdallah S. Berrouk “Proposed solutions for the new challenges facing GASCO existing and new Habshan gas plants: High H2S and CO2 concentrations and unconventional contaminants”. 2013-2015.

    Sponsor: Gas Research Centre (SHELL/TOTAL/PARTEX)

    Project Objectives: Propose technical solutions for the new challenges facing GASCO
    Habshan existing and new gas plants in dealing with the highly sour natural gas. Indeed,
    challenges such as high H2S and CO2 concentrations and unconventional contaminants should
    be technically addressed and have their effects mitigated through a framework of actions to
    improve GASCO gas sweetening operations.

    Role: Project Leader
  • Cornelis Peters, Maaike C. Kroon, Frank Geuzebroek, Abdallah S. Berrouk  “Use of Ionic liquids for CO2 Separation”. 2012-2016.

    Sponsor: Gas Research Centre (SHELL/TOTAL/PARTEX)

    Project Objectives: The project aims to deliver an optimum choice of an ionic liquid for CO2
    capturing in terms of loading capacity, kinetics of the absorption process, thermo-stability,
    corrosion, price of the solvent, etc.  Most important in this study is to establish the pros and cons
    of physical absorbents in comparison with chemical absorbents like amines. G-force technique
    potential in CO2 separation will be experimentally and numerically investigated

    Role: Project co-principal investigator   
  • Abdallah S. Berrouk “Prediction of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) formation and emission from catalyst regeneration in Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) units”. 2013 – 2014 (Completed)

Sponsor: Research Initiation Funding Projects (Petroleum Institute)

Project Objectives: Develop a compact and reliable procedure for the prediction of noxious
emissions from catalyst regeneration in modern Fluidized-bed Catalytic Cracking (FCC) units.
To this end, numerical simulations of the dense, reacting, gas–solid flow in the FCC
Regenerator will be conducted using Barracuda VR software and used to optimize the
environmental performance of such a refining unit.

           Role: Project Leader

  • Abdallah S. Berrouk “Discrete Particle modelling of Fluid Catalytic Cracking units”. 2011-2014.

Sponsor: TAKREER

Project Objectives: Model fluid dynamics and heat transfer within fluidized catalytic cracking units present in refinery plants as well as pilot plant units used for catalyst screening and selection. The aim is to improve refinery plants’ components functioning using the developed numerical models for multiphase flows.

conversion of plastic waste to synthetic gas (H2+CO) that can be used as a source 
of energy. The conversion process takes place in a fluidized bed gasifier.

Role: Project co-principal investigator

  • Cornelis Peters, Abdallah S. Berrouk “Improved Performance of Gas-Sweetening Processes”, 2009-2013.
