Advances gilsonite based filter to sequester greenhouse gas at wellhead   Researchers advance asphalt-based filter to sequester greenhouse gas at wellhead (Nanowerk News) Rice University scientists have found a way to make their asphalt-based sorbents better at capturing carbon dioxide from gas wells: Just add water. The Rice lab of chemist James Tour discovered that […]

Bitumen project in Africa Bitumen project moving slowly due economic issue and rainy season in Africa.The pressure on road paving is increasing for a variety of reasons including climate change and rising average ambient air temperatures. Roads are not designed to withstand this, leading to early-life surface rutting and deformation that has to be repaired more […]

Gilsonite used in lithium base batteries and duration of charge decreased to just 5 minutes The Rice lab of chemist James Tour developed anodes comprising porous carbon made from gilsonite that showed exceptional stability after more than 500 charge-discharge cycles. A high-current density of 20 milliamps per square centimeter demonstrated the material’s promise for use in rapid […]
