Transient Kinetics of n-Butane Partial Oxidation at Elevated Pressure
Partial oxidation of n-butane to maleic anhydride (MA) over vanadium phosphorous oxide (VPO) catalyst has been widely studied during the last few decades. Despite these efforts, investigation on the real mechanism and kinetics of this reaction especially under transient conditions is still an open challenge. In this study, the validity of a Mars-van Krevelen type kinetic model for transient n-butane partial oxidation was verified for a wide range of operating conditions including higher reactor pressure (4.1 bar).
Situating Fluidized Bed Pilot Scale Studies in Academia
Scale-up of fluidized bed operation is one of the cruxes in commercializing a new fluidized bed process, due to changes in important operating characteristics between different size units. Focusing on scaling issues related to particle-technology, in particular fluidization, this talk explores how scaling is considered and units are designed with comparisons to expected outcomes and reality.

University of Toronto breaks ground on new Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship
U of T Engineering News
U of T Engineering alumni, faculty, students and staff recently gathered to celebrate the groundbreaking of the Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CEIE).
Expected to open in 2017, the building will be the beginning of a new era for engineering research and education in the Faculty. It will strengthen opportunities for students, professors, alumni and industry partners to work together and accelerate transformative solutions to some of the world's greatest challenges.
Engineers Canada latest labour market report points to looming engineer shortage
Engineers Canada released its "Engineering Labour Market in Canada: Projections to 2025" report recently, detailing province-level projections of supply and demand for engineers in the coming decade. The regulatory agency's labor forecast projects that more than 100,000 engineering jobs will need filling in Canada between now and 2025 as engineers retire and the economy continues to grow.
At least 1,000 engineering jobs lost as Alberta oilpatch activity slows
A downturn in construction activity linked to low oil and gas prices has cost the jobs of about 1,000 consulting engineers in Alberta so far and is blamed for the recent exit from Calgary of at least one foreign-owned engineering company.
Roughly one in 10 jobs have disappeared this year from the 10,000 engineers employed by companies in Alberta that offer engineering services for clients under contract, according to Ken Pilip, chief executive and registrar for the Consulting Engineers of Alberta organization.
Managing employment references is crucial to getting the job
Imagine your strong, marketable resume got you the interview, that your interview seemed to go well and when requested, you confidently offered the employer your references.
Then imagine the employer calls you back with the news they have decided to go with another candidate.
Is it possible your references somehow derailed your job search campaign?
