    Coober Pedy is like a desert town. Coober Pedy has very few residents. Most of the residents live below ground in houses called “Dugouts”. Most of the people live below ground, because of the high daytime temperatures. Coober Pedy wouldn't be affected by a landslide, because a landslide is a sliding down of a mass of earth or rock from a mountain or cliff.

    commodity today. Air pollution is as old as industrialisation. Discharges from industrial premises to the atmosphere are often more or less continuous during working hours. Polluted air contains solid and liquid particles such as dust carbon, hydrocarbons etc. It may also contain gases

  • The Athabasca Tar Sands Has Caused Great Environmental Damage

    These tailings ponds leak 67 litres of the toxic water into the Athabasca River every second (*2). This has caused the levels of toxic hydrocarbons in the nearby lakes and rivers to become 2.5-23 times what it was before the development (Cotter). The Athabasca river has also become extremely low, and the Athabasca glacier has receded 1.5km since the tar sands expanded. The Alberta government

  • Synthesis Gas : The Interim Exquisite

    1139 Words  | 5 Pages

    1.1 Synthesis gas – the interim exquisite Synthesis gas is a versatile intermediate feedstock for fuel and value added chemical synthesis. It is a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide in various ratios. The composition of synthesis gas can be widely varied, depending on the synthesis processes and the composition of the raw materials, i.e. their hydrogen-to-carbon ratios and their reactivity’s. Synthesis gas can be produced not only from natural gas, petroleum, petroleum derivatives, or coals

  • Disadvantages Of Solar Energy

    parts. Firstly, we will talk about fossil fuels and its demerits. Secondly, we will look at the issues and implications of solar energy. Finally, we will focus on the advantageous and disadvantageous of solar energy respectively. Fossil fuels are hydrocarbons, primarily coal, fuel oil or natural gas created from the decade of dead plants and animals. Fossil fuels are formed through the natural process. So they are considered as un-renewable resources because the formation of fossil fuels may take millions

    power compared to other sources available in Canada. While the Tar Sands are currently good for the canadian economy, in the long-term they will cost us more than they make. The content of cancer causing chemicals like PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) is twice as high as the standard recommended by the national oceanic and atmospheric administration in the United States. These levels have been observed to cause liver cancer in fish. (Timoney 68) Fish from Lake Athabasca have been found with

    efficiency. As engines were advancing the gasoline put through them also had to be upgraded. The processes that were invented to improve the yield of gasoline from crude oil were known as cracking. In this refining process, cracking used heavy hydrocarbon molecules to break up lighter molecules by means of heat, pressure, and catalyst. This process helped advance gasoline to run in the car engines. Eventually, catalytic cracking took over

    I. Boiling Points and Liquid Distillation II. Purpose: The purpose of this experiment is for students to learn how to properly and accurately separate two liquid compounds, which have two different boiling points, using simple distillation. Then be able to calculate the density of the two samples after the distillation process to determine the success of the distillation process. III. Materials: 25 mL Hexane and Toluene in 1 to 1 ratio 10-mL Graduated Cylinder 50-mL round bottom flask Heating
