Biorefinery
Jean Paris
The conversion of pulping mills into integrated forest biorefineries can be viewed as consisting of four building blocks which can be implemented following different pathways: 1) Conversion of the pulp line into new fiber based products, 2) Extracting and converting wood components into biofuels and bioproducts, 3) Energy efficiency enhancement and intensive integration, and 4) Product delivery at the gate of the biorefinery and insertion into downstream processing chains. Details of each individual pathway will be covered in the presentation.

Chemical Reaction Engineering International Symposium (In Honour of Serge Kaliaguine, Université Laval)
Serge Kaliaguine
Oxygen carriers are meant to enhance gasifiers performance by continuously extracting CO2 from the gaseous medium. They fix CO2 as a solid carbonate, mostly CaCO3, which is transported to a decarbonation reactor. The recovered oxide (usually CaO) is recycled to the gasifier for continuous operation. The main technical problem is recyclability of the carrier which loses activity due to collapse of the pore structure and attrition. The work we will report is based on the concept of covering the carbonate/oxide particle with a layer of mesostructured material. The porous structure of the shell allows gas diffusion while preserving the integrity of the particle over repeated cycling.

Yahoo! News
If you don't know much about Edmonton, it might be hard to see the appeal. The winters are cold and the landscape undramatic.

But there is one enviable thing Edmonton does have: jobs, and plenty of them. Edmonton scored the highest among Canada's biggest urban centres in terms of projected job growth in a recent labour-market study by CareerBuilder.ca, the Canadian branch of a U.S.-owned career site.
