  • Motorised three-wheeler taxis

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    This article presents readers with the option of retaining three-wheeler taxis – with attention to better technology, maintenance and regulation – on the grounds that they perform a valuable role in the localities where they exist, and if they were removed the vehicles and travel practices that replaced them would produce increased congestion, road injuries and fatalities, air pollution and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. On these grounds, localities that do not have three-wheeler taxis might even consider introducing newer, cleaner-technology versions of them.

  • Mercury Removal Process

    Type: 
    Product

    This process enables the removal of mercury from LPG naphtha and natural gas condensates to 1 ppb level without the need for hydrogen. Applications include mercury removal at wellheads treatment for ethylene production and catalytic reforming. This process could realize lower CAPEX and OPEX compared with conventional processes. The process consists of the three processes Process A Process B and Process C. Process A includes adsorption Process B includes decomposition and adsorption and Process C includes decomposition stripping and adsorption.
