An innovative method of extraction of coffee oil using an advanced microwave system: in comparison with conventional Soxhlet extraction method (2019)
Journal Article
Zein, S., & Welham, K. (in press). An innovative method of extraction of coffee oil using an advanced microwave system: in comparison with conventional Soxhlet extraction method. SN applied sciences,

The production of energy and chemicals from waste biomass is an attractive alternative by comparison with first generation biofuels and fossil feedstocks. This paper investigates oil extraction from spent coffee grounds (SCG) by means of an advanced... Read More

Facile co-sintering process to fabricate sustainable antifouling silver nanoparticles (AgNPs)-enhanced tight ceramic ultrafiltration membranes for protein separation (2019)
Journal Article
Zou, D., Drioli, E., Chen, X., Ke, X., Qiu, M., & Fan, Y. (2020). Facile co-sintering process to fabricate sustainable antifouling silver nanoparticles (AgNPs)-enhanced tight ceramic ultrafiltration membranes for protein separation. Journal of membrane science, 593, 117402. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.memsci.2019.117402

Protein separation in medical care applications using tight ceramic ultrafiltration (UF) membranes with multilayer asymmetric structures is hindered by challenges in their fabrication and fouling phenomenon. In this study, a facile co-sintering metho... Read More

Gas rising through a large diameter column of very viscous liquid: Flow patterns and their dynamic characteristics (2019)
Journal Article
Hasan, A. H., Mohammed, S. K., Pioli, L., Hewakandamby, B. N., & Azzopardi, B. J. (2019). Gas rising through a large diameter column of very viscous liquid: Flow patterns and their dynamic characteristics. International journal of multiphase flow, 116, 1-14. https://doi.org/10.1016...tiphaseflow.2019.04.001

Gas-liquid flows are affected strongly by both the liquid and gas properties and the pipe diameter, which control features and the stability of flow patterns and their transitions. For this reason, empirical models describing the flow dynamics can be... Read More

Theoretical and experimental study of bubbly gas-water two phase flows through a Universal Venturi Tube (UVT) (2012)
Journal Article
Hasan, A. H. A. M., Hadawey, A., Al-Wahaibi, Y., Abdul-Karem, W., & Al-Raheem, K. F. (2012). Theoretical and experimental study of bubbly gas-water two phase flows through a Universal Venturi Tube (UVT). International journal of information and education technology, 2(1), 43-58

Unlike single phase flows, the relationship between the phase flow rate and the pressure drop across a differential pressure device (e.g. Venturi) in multiphase flow measurements is not simple and should include the phase volume fractions or the mass... Read More

The design and photoreaction kinetic modeling of a gas-phase titania foam packed bed reactor (2007)
Journal Article
Ibhadon, A., Arabatzis, I. M., Falaras, P., & Tsoukleris, D. (2007). The design and photoreaction kinetic modeling of a gas-phase titania foam packed bed reactor. Chemical Engineering Journal, 133(1-3), 317 - 323. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cej.2007.02.018

The design and testing as well as theoretical and experimental study involving kinetic modeling and photooxidation reactions of a gas-phase photocatalytic packed bed reactor (PBR) based on a porous titania foam is reported. The photoreactor was desig... Read More
