Text of report by Iranian state-run provincial TV from Khuzestan on 13 September Some 2,200,000 tonnes of various petrochemical products have been produced at the petrochemical complex in Imam Khomeyni Port since the beginning of this year [Iranian year started 20 March 2008]. The managing director of Bandar Imam Petrochemical Complex said that this amount of products was produced by Faravaresh Bandar Imam Company, Besparan and Kymia. He added that during this period of time more than...

Tokyo, Aug. 23 (Jiji Press)--Japanese chemical makers are promoting the use of raw materials other than naphtha to combat soaring crude oil prices and ensure stable production. In departure from dependence on naphtha as a key raw material for chemical products, Sumitomo Chemical Co. will open a plant in Saudi Arabia to make raw materials of plastics from natural gas and ethane released during oil drilling. Once the plant starts operating by the end of March next year, Sumitomo Chemical's...

By Philip Haldiman, The Arizona Daily Star, Tucson Jul. 31--Our planet isn't the only heavenly body with liquid on its surface. Scientists from the University of Arizona and NASA on Wednesday announced at least one of the large, lakelike features on a moon of Saturn is wet. The moon, Titan, contains liquid hydrocarbons and ethane, scientists said. Besides Earth, this makes Titan the only known body in our solar system with liquid on its surface, NASA said in a press release. The...

Titan, Saturn's largest moon, has a huge lake filled with liquid gas, U.S. researchers have confirmed. The lake, called Ontario Lacus, covers about 7,800 square miles at Titan's south pole, and is filled mostly with liquid methane and ethane, say researchers at the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory in Tucson, Ariz. This is the first observation that really pins down that Titan has a surface lake filled with liquid, said lead researcher Robert Brown. The finding,...

Scientists have confirmed that at least one body in our solar system, other than Earth, has a surface liquid lake. Using an instrument on NASA's Cassini orbiter, they discovered that a lake-like feature in the south polar region of Saturn's moon, Titan, is truly wet. The lake is about 235 kilometers, or 150 miles, long. The visual and infrared mapping spectrometer, or VIMS, an instrument run from The University Arizona, identifies the chemical composition of objects by the way matter reflects...

Separating natural gas liquids from natural gas is a natural part of the industry. It also is an area where ONEOK Partners is growing in a big way, with more than $1.1 billion in projects underway through the end of 2009. Natural gas liquids go into a variety of different products for consumers. Stripping those liquids out of the gas has to happen first, though. Natural gas liquids are ethane, propane, butane and natural gas. All of those are present in the natural gas -- methane -- that...

By Tanthachoon, Nathiya Chiemchaisri, Chart; Chiemchaisri, Wilai; Tudsri, Sayan; Kumar, Sunil ABSTRACT The effect of compost and vegetation on methane (CH^sub 4^) oxidation was investigated during wet and dry conditions in a tropical region. A laboratory-scale experiment was conducted to examine the performance of nonvegetated and vegetated landfill cover systems in terms of CH^sub 4^ oxidation efficiency. Two types of landfill cover materials (compost and sandy loam) and two species of...

Saturn's orange moon Titan has hundreds of times more liquid hydrocarbons than all the known oil and natural gas reserves on Earth, according to new data from NASA's Cassini spacecraft. The hydrocarbons rain from the sky, collecting in vast deposits that form lakes and dunes. The new findings from the study led by Ralph Lorenz, Cassini radar team member from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Md., are reported in the Jan. 29 issue of the Geophysical Research...

If space travelers ever visit Saturn's largest moon, they will find a tropical world where temperatures plunge to minus 274 degrees Fahrenheit, methane rains from the sky and dunes of ice or tar cover the planet's most arid regions. These conditions reflect a cold mirror image of Earth's tropical and subtropical climates, according to scientists at the University. "You have all these things that are analogous to Earth. At the same time, it's foreign and unfamiliar," said Ray Pierrehumbert,...

Saturn's Moon Titan
2004-10-19 04:45:41

Saturn's moon Titan -- Titan is the planet Saturn's largest moon. It is larger than either of the planets Mercury or Pluto and is the second-largest moon in the solar system after Ganymede (it was originally thought to be slightly larger than Ganymede, but recent observations have shown that its thick atmosphere caused overestimation of its diameter). Titan was discovered on March 25, 1655 by the Dutch astronomer Christian Huygens, making it one of the first non-terrestrial moons to be...
