Read the insights that we have on the industry.
Safety is Priority Number 1. BurrowX will not compromise the health and well-being of anyone for an engineering innovation. Biodiesel Production is a very dangerous process because of the use of sulfuric acid, sodium hydroxide and methanol.
BurrowX is providing recommendations to safely handle these chemicals in a Biodiesel Production Plant.
In a Biodiesel Production plant water can sometimes enter the system along with the waste grease. If the right systems are not in placed to remove this water, the product quality will be compromised and unwanted glycerin will be created instead of biodiesel.
BurrowX is providing services to optimize water removal in a Biodiesel Production Plant.
In the design and operation of a Biodiesel Production Plant, feed stock composition is crucial to the profitability and long term operation of the plant. BurrowX performed research on restaurant grease waste to analyze the average composition of a given area in the U.S.
This composition would have been used to determine the feasibility of constructing a Biodiesel production plant in the chosen city.
BurrowX is providing consultation and services for Biodiesel Feed selection and composition analysis.
Heat Stable Salt Generation will happen in an Amine System with a very dirty Sour Gas Stream. However, it is the job of the Engineers to reduce the rate of Heat Stable Salt generation as much as possible to reduce the economic load on the Overall plant.
BurrowX Studied a Client's Amine system using Monoethanolamine (MEA) to identify solutions to reduce the rate of their Heat Stable Salt Generation.
BurrowX delivered a custom built lab scale anaerobic reactors with automated temperature control, gas flow metering, and data collection to Tuskegee University. This was funded by a USDA grant to allow the Tuskegee researchers to have the capacity to determine Biomethane potential safely.
BurrowX designed and simulated the conversion of vegetable oil to Biodiesel to determine the feasibility of a small scale operation for our clients in South Africa.
BurrowX replicated and improved upon a recent American Chemical Society (ACS) publication that uses Ultrasound technology to speed up the rate of reaction in a Biodiesel Production process.
BurrowX has been consulted to develop technology that can economically capture and treat the steam to produce process-quality water could reduce plant operating costs by decreasing the potable water input and improve the ecological footprint of dry snacks manufacturing.
To do this BurrowX implemented an innovative system comprised of Carbon Nanotubes to recovery, and treat the plant's water to the conditions recommended by the World Health Organization.
BurrowX, through extensive research and collaboration, has developed an organic pesticide to control the grubs with 70% efficacy for 4 weeks.
Commercially available pesticides have been known to affect insects outside of its target range, cause runoff into rivers and water streams near it, and affect humans and small children.
BurrowX's goal was to provide the highest efficacy of natural grub control to attack each mode of the grub life cycle without the adverse effects listed above.
BurrowX was consulted to research the direct contact freezing of water using Liquid Nitrogen. This was done by developing a MATLAB simulation to calculate the population balance equations that govern the crystallization mechanisms within the system.
BurrowX simulated a new idea that is direct contact seawater freezing desalination using cold energy of LNG. This energy saving type of desalination process is likely to be put to practical use to cope with a potential shortage of water.
When a company decides to implement Six Sigma, first and foremost they need to follow the entire protocol of Six Sigma. Read more.
Why is Six Sigma important for business? This may seem like an ignorant question, but to people who don’t know what Six Sigma is, it is a perfectly good question.
At some point in your career, you may decide that you want to change. Change can be a positive step towards achieving your career goals, depending on your move.
Here are 6 Practical types for Water Treatment for those managers who are just starting out.
When looking at industrial wastewater treatment for inorganics, the treatment process can be as simple as settling or filtration and as complex as multistage chemical precipitation or ion exchange processes.
Though membrane technology is one of the fastest-developing aspects of water treatment, much is left to be done to ensure that the barriers can rid effluent of all the contaminants it might carry.
