Fuel and chemicals from steel plant exhaust gases

03-Jul-2015

Carbon monoxide-rich exhaust gases from steel plants are only being reclaimed to a minor extent as power or heat. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a new recycling process for this materially unused carbon resource: They successfully produced fuel and specialty chemicals from these exhaust ...

Metal encapsulation optimizes chemical reactions

02-Jul-2015

The chemical industry consumes millions of tons of packing materials as catalytic support media or adsorbents in fixed-bed reactors and heat storage systems. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a means of encapsulating these filler particles in metal that multiplies their thermal conductivity ...
