A new research paper has been published in the Springer-USA

Koya University Researcher Mr. Ribwar Abdulrahman, a Lecturer at the faculty of Engineering (FENG), has published a new research paper on natural gas processing engineering, Effect of lean amine temperature on amine gas sweetening: case study and simulation. 

The research paper has been published in the journal Chemistry and Technology of Fuels and Oils which is published by Springer –USA INK and has a real Thomson Reuters impact factor. Moreover, the paper has been indexed and recorded by many international universities and libraries for instance, Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Washington University.

Aspen HYSYS software has been adopted to simulate the process of amine sweetening of natural gas with high acid gas content. We analyze the effect of the lean amine (absorbent) temperature on the acid gas content in the sweetened gas and saturated amine solution (the rich amine). We found that the optimal temperature for the regenerated amine solution (lean amine), at which the maximum sweetening of the gas is achieved with minimum amine circulation rate, is within the range 38°C-45°C.

Koya University is escalating its presence in the global academic arena. In the latest Webometics ranking of 2014 Koya University has been ranked as 20th best university in Iraq and 12096 globally. This is a remarkable achievement by a young and dynamic university such as Koya University in the Middle East.
