In this investigation, the preparation and gas selectivity characteristics of an 'ultrafine' composite ceramic membrane are reported. A dip-coating technique was used to prepare a thin selective membrane on a commercially available ceramic macroporous filter (SCT, France). The permeabilities of H2, N2 and CO2 were measured at temperatures of 25-470°C and average pressures of 1-2 bar. The separation of CO2/N2 binary mixtures was also performed. The separation factors for CO2 were found to be higher than that of the Knudsen separation mechanism at room and high temperature. The potential applications of these membranes to CO2 separati . . .on at these temperatures are discussed on the basis of measured selectivity values Daha fazlası Daha az

Air pollution continues to be a major problem in many countries. Mathematical models are useful in relating emissions to air quality under a variety of meteorological conditions and source emission concentrations over an urban area. Meanwhile, the forecasting capability of sophisticated models is limited to very large and complex terrains. In this study, an adaptive neuro-fuzzy logic method has been developed to estimate the impact of meteorological factors on SO2 pollution levels. The model satisfactorily forecasts the trends of SO2 concentration levels with a performance between 78-90%.
