A detailed kinetic mechanism for methanol oxidation in not only important to model methanol as a fuel but also it is a key sub-mechanism in hydrocarbon combustion mechanisms. The current study focuses on the reaction of methanol (400 ppm CH3OH/N2) in the temperature range of 573-1023 K (with residence times of 2.3-4.2 s) and at atmospheric pressure. The reaction was performed in a laminar flow reactor with the addition of small concentrations of O2 (0-1500 ppm), thus providing a range of mostly fuel rich conditions, and was perturbed by the addition of NOX (0-200 ppm). The main products of the reaction are formaldehyde (CH2O), hydrogen (H2), carbon monoxide (CO), water (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2), and, in the presence of NOX, nitrogen oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). Methanol reacts with O2 at temperatures above 923 K, but when NOX is added, the reaction temperature is lowered to 773 K. This paper presents experimental results in a range of oxygen conditions not studied before. The experimental data are also modelled with the kinetic mechanisms currently available in the literature.

A detailed chemical mechanism was developed to describe reactions in the H2-S2-H2S system. The mechanism consisted 21 reactions among the species H2S, S2, H2, HSSH, HSS, SH, S, and H. The mechanism was validated against a diverse collection of published data for H2S thermolysis in a static cell or in flow reactors, at 873-1423 K; 0.04-3 bar; and H2S mole fractions of 0.02-1. The predictions of the mechanism were sensitive only on the rates of the processes responsible for S-S bond formation. Data for the reverse, hydrogen sulfidation reaction (H2 + S2) were also modeled very accurately. This comprehensive chemical kinetic mechanism for the H/S system describes a wide range of experimental data and provides the basis for the construction of accurate models for H2S oxidation in combustion and related systems.

The experimental and modeling kinetic study of the low temperature CH3OH oxidation was presented. The experiments were performed at 1 atm isothermal plug-flow reactor at 400°-760°C and residence times 0.5-3 sec. Oxidation of 75-300 ppm CH3 OH with O2 (0-20%) was carried out with and without NO (0-650 ppm) present. The experimental results were modeled with a previously developed methane oxidation mechanism for lean fuels and low temperatures. Chemical-kinetic modeling was performed with the Sandia ChemkinII/Senkin chemical kinetic packages using plug flow reactor model. The addition of NO to identify the branching ratio of Rl was discussed and the chemistry of CH3OH reactions was revealed. Original is an abstract.

This review assesses and quantifies the financial barriers to DM created by existing economic regulatory incentives for distribution network businesses. the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) commissioned ISF to conduct the review to support the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) in developing the new DM Incentive Scheme required by a change to the National Electricity Rules in 2015.

Trace amounts of H2S, which are present in natural gas, can be emitted in the atmosphere as H2S or in the oxidized form as SOx. The low-temperature oxidation of H2S was studied experimentally in an isothermal plug flow reactor at an interval of 150°-550°C and 1 atm and analyzed the interaction of 100 ppm H2S with 0-100 ppm NO, 0-100 ppm NO2 with or without O2 present (0-20%). NO and NOx concentrations were also determined using a chemiluminescent NOx analyzer. NO2 reacted readily with H2S in the absence of O2 even at 150°C. The products detected were H2O, SO2, NO, NO2, O2, and trace amounts of H2. In the presence of O2, SO2 was the main sulfur product. However, in the absence of O2, S2O formation occurred when H2S reacted with NO2.
