Computer simulations may improve clean energy productionUniversity of Saskatchewan researcher Dr. Reza Haghgoo (PhD) has developed a novel computer model to help engineers design more efficient equipment used across the energy sector for producing chemicals including syngas, a clean energy source with the potential to replace natural gas in generating electricity.
Syngas — a mixture of hydrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide — is a cheaper alternative to fossil fuels and is produced in refinery equipment called fluidized beds. Syngas is a growing industry, especially in Asia and Australia. The gas helps refine other chemicals — as of 2014, 25 per cent of ammonia and over 30 per cent of methanol worldwide was produced using syngas.
