Applied Operational Excellence for the Oil, Gas, and Process Industries

 

Gulf Professional Publishing, 2016.

ISBNs 9780128027882

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Applied Operational Excellence for the Oil, Gas, and Process Industries offers a straightforward practical guide for oil and gas companies to understand the comparisons and contrasts between various types of safety management processes, including the standardized structure and ongoing extended benefits that operational excellence can bring to an oil and gas company.

The goal of achieving operational excellence is to reduce costs, improve productivity, and enhance efficiency—in other words, operational excellence contributes to the bottom line. Following along with pre-built success in the process industries, many companies in the oil and gas industry appear to use a subset form of operational excellence, yet many are unsure or unaware of all the safety system components that will truly benefit the company holistically, and current literature is only applicable to the process and manufacturing industries.

Packed with clear objectives and tools, structure guidelines specific to oil and gas, and guidance for how to imbed your existing safety program under the operational excellence umbrella known as "One-Step Merger," this book will help you establish an overall safety culture vision and challenge your organization to achieve higher levels of safety management and overall company value.

  • Explores how to solidify a foundational operational excellence program applicable for your oil and gas company
  • Clarifies the differences and benefits among various programs under operational excellence (OE), such as SHE (safety, health, and environment), PSM (process safety management), and SMS (safety management system)
  • Explains how to audit and consistently assess how oil and gas OE systems are planned, implemented, and managed, with explanations on cost and time impacts as well as administrative protocols
  • Includes a glossary, acronym appendix, and additional references for further reading

C,H,N and O in Si and Characterization and Simulation of Materials and Processes

 

Elsevier, 1996.

ISBNs 9780444824134

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Containing over 200 papers, this volume contains the proceedings of two symposia in the E-MRS series. Part I presents a state of the art review of the topic - Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen and Oxygen in Silicon and in Other Elemental Semiconductors. There was strong representation from the industrial laboratories, illustrating that the topic is highly relevant for the semiconductor industry.

The second part of the volume deals with a topic which is undergoing a process of convergence with two concerns that are more particularly application oriented. Firstly, the advanced instrumentation which, through the use of atomic force and tunnel microscopies, high resolution electron microscopy and other high precision analysis instruments, now allows for direct access to atomic mechanisms. Secondly, the technological development which in all areas of applications, particularly in the field of microelectronics and microsystems, requires as a result of the miniaturisation race, a precise mastery of the microscopic mechanisms.

Halogenated Biphenyls, Terphenyls, Naphthalenes, Dibenzodioxins and Related Products

 

2nd ed. Elsevier, 1989.

ISBNs 9780444810298

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): The chemical industry is increasingly faced with problems arizing from chemicals produced during the manufacture of halogenated biphenyls or phenols. Knowledge of these chemicals and their destructive properties is sporadic, and the acute toxicity of this group varies widely.
This informative revised edition presents the chemistry, environmental pollution problems, animal toxicology and information about structure-activity relationships. A brief overview is given of worker exposure and occupational illness.
The book is divided into three parts: chemistry and environmental contamination; experimental toxicology; and human exposure and effects.
Because of the great deal of interest in these compounds much new research work has been conducted since the first edition of this book was published.
This revised edition has retained the effectiveness and clarity of the first edition, while being supplemented with new information, condensed old information, and examples of recent incidents.

Introduction to Biotechnology, An

The Science, Technology and Medical Applications

 

Woodhead Publishing, 2015.

ISBNs 9781907568282

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): An Introduction to Biotechnology is a biotechnology textbook aimed at undergraduates. It covers the basics of cell biology, biochemistry and molecular biology, and introduces laboratory techniques specific to the technologies addressed in the book; it addresses specific biotechnologies at both the theoretical and application levels.
Biotechnology is a field that encompasses both basic science and engineering. There are currently few, if any, biotechnology textbooks that adequately address both areas. Engineering books are equation-heavy and are written in a manner that is very difficult for the non-engineer to understand. Numerous other attempts to present biotechnology are written in a flowery manner with little substance. The author holds one of the first PhDs granted in both biosciences and bioengineering. He is more than an author enamoured with the wow-factor associated with biotechnology; he is a practicing researcher in gene therapy, cell/tissue engineering, and other areas and has been involved with emerging technologies for over a decade. Having made the assertion that there is no acceptable text for teaching a course to introduce biotechnology to both scientists and engineers, the author committed himself to resolving the issue by writing his own.

  • The book is of interest to a wide audience because it includes the necessary background for understanding how a technology works.
  • Engineering principles are addressed, but in such a way that an instructor can skip the sections without hurting course content
  • The author has been involved with many biotechnologies through his own direct research experiences. The text is more than a compendium of information - it is an integrated work written by an author who has experienced first-hand the nuances associated with many of the major biotechnologies of general interest today.

Photocalytic Coatings for Air-Purifying, Self-Cleaning and Antimicrobial Properties

Vol. Special Issue

 

MDPI AG - Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2015.

Título de la serie/colección: Coatings. ISSN 2079-6412,

ISBNs 9783038421382 9783038421375

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): With the latest nanotechnology developments, the application of nanoparticle-based coatings, which give novel properties to different materials, has become very attractive to scientists and industries worldwide. For example, photocatalytic coatings may potentially develop air-purifying, self-cleaning, and antimicrobial properties using light irradiation as the only energy source. The application of these novel functionalities on ceramic, polymeric, metal, and composite (e.g., concrete or mortar) substrates has been significantly increasing in recent years. Furthermore, although several standard test methods for evaluating photocatalytic properties have been recently launched, a significant amount of photocatalytic performances have been reported in existing literature using various in-house tests. This makes comparison a complex task. Moreover, the applicability of different coating technologies developed for photocatalytic coatings on different substrates has been inadequately investigated. Thus, by including all types of substrates and coating technologies, this Special Issue aims to provide better comparisons and assessments of the application potentials of different photocatalytic coating technologies on different substrates for developing air-purifying, self-cleaning, and antimicrobial properties.
