An-Najah Excels in Research in Energy Technology Field
A group of researchers from the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology at An-Najah National University published a research paper in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers with an impact factor of (3.182-Q1) titled" Thermogravimetric Kinetics Study of Scrap Tires Pyrolysis Using Silica Embedded with NiO and/or MgO Nanocatalysts ".
The research team included Dr. Ihab Alsurakji from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Amjad El-Qanni from the Department of Chemical Engineering, Prof. Ismail Warad from the Department of Chemistry, Prof. Amer El-Hamouz from the Department of Chemical Engineering and Eng. Yazan Odeh from the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
In this study, a set of three new silica-based embedded with NiO and/or MgO nanocatalysts (SBNs) have been prepared and tested for the pyrolysis of scrap tires (STs). The intent is to identify and optimize the best nanocatalyst that decreases the operating temperature and speeds up the pyrolysis reaction rate.
