The main goal of this paper is to elaborate a mathematical model that represents the physics and chemistry involved when a small particle of wet sewage sludge is incinerated. Compared to existing models, our study includes both drying and heterogenous combustion of the pyrloysis residue of the processed sludge. This model relies on the assumption of(More)
Neroli essential oil is extracted from the fragrant blossoms of the bitter orange tree. It is one of the most widely used floral oils in perfumery. In this study chemical composition and in vitro antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of neroli oil are investigated. The essential oil of fresh Citrus aurantium L. Flowers (Neroli oil) cultivated in North(More)
The treatment and disposal of tyres from vehicles has long been of considerable environmental importance. Studies have been undertaken to reduce their environmental impact. In this study, an alternative gas was produced from automobile tyre wastes by the means of a controlled pyrolysis. To do so, a novel catalytic system was designed with the aim of(More)
This paper presents a mathematical model dedicated to fluidized bed incineration of sludge. The main assumptions as well as the principal equations of the model are presented. Basically, this model relies on instantaneous pyrolysis of sludge and on a five zones description of the hydrodynamics into the incinerator. Its originality is essentially due to the(More)
The effect of hygrothermal conditions (air temperature and relative humidity) on the dehydration of theophylline monohydrate was investigated. Firstly, the equilibrium states of theophylline were investigated. The data from gravimetric analysis at constant temperature and humidity were reported as desorption isotherms. The PXRD analysis was used to identify(More)
