Adsorption potential of bentonite and attapulgite clays applied for the desalination of sea water
A possible new process for the partial desalination of seawater is to use bentonite clay or attapulgite as an adsorbent. The ion exchange property of these clays, which is a result of the characteristic t-o-t layer ...
Susceptibility of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to inhibitors and impact on bioethanol production yield
There have been increasing concerns in developing countries over the competition between food and energy resulting from the production of bioethanol from edible biomass. Second generation lignocellulose feedstock is an ...
Physico-chemical activation of South African bentonite clay and impact on metal adsorption capacity
The aim of the project is to investigate the influence of physico-chemical activation on the metal adsorption capacities of natural bentonite clay from the North West Province of South Africa. The clay has been characterized ...
HTR system integration in Europe and South Africa
The practice of applicability checks in information systems research: an empirical confirmation
The practice of applicability checks1 can be considered a relative new concept in the field of Information Systems (IS) research. It is, however, an appropriate method to ensure the practical relevance of research. The ...
Behavioural thresholds in the context of information security
This research presents the exploratory application of behavioural threshold theory on group behaviour related to information security. Behavioural threshold analysis is presented as a possible tool for aiding the development ...
Reducing DLOFC fuel temperatures by mixing thorium with LEU in a single-zone six-pass fuel cycle in a PBMR-DPP-400 core
(ANS (American Nuclear Society), 2016)
Many studies have been done in neutronics and thermal-hydraulic simulation of the standard 6-pass fuel recirculation scheme for the standard 9.6 wt % enriched, 9 g per fuel sphere low-enriched uranium (LEU) fuel in the ...
Combining empirical mode decomposition with neural networks for the prediction of exchange rates
(SCITEPRESS (Science and Technology Publications, Lda.), 2014)
This paper proposes a neural network based model applied to empirical mode decomposition (EMD) filtered data for multi-step-ahead prediction of exchange rates. EMD is used to decompose the returns of exchange rates into ...
