  • Hydrogen Sulfide: New Gaseous Signaling Molecule in the Cardiovascular System

    1010 Words  | 4 Pages

    Introduction: Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is the latest molecule added to the gasotransmitter group after nitric oxide (NO) and carbon monoxide (CO). Great attention has been given to H2S in the last few years with regards to its production, metabolism, physiological functions and clearance. H2S constitutes a sound example of science’s evolution based on research and development; since H2S has been named as a toxic gas since its discovery in 1713, and only in the late 80’s of the past century scientist

  • Essay On Deepwater Technology

    Recent Advances in Deepwater Technologies (Corrosion and Control for Subsea Engineering Applications) Abstract The purpose of this technical literature review is to pinpoint the most significant advances in deep water technologies as regards corrosion and its control in the past two decades. A review paper like this with the apportioned space will not be able to do justice to all the new technologies, particularly those that are step-by-step advances to now well established techniques. I will discuss

  • Persuasive Essay On Sulfide Mining

    home to the MinnTac facility, the largest iron ore operation in the Unites States. However, the proposed PolyMet sulfide mining project would be the first of it’s kind in the state's history. In order to protect and conserve the environment along lake Superior in Minnesota, and keep local residents safe, the PolyMet mining project should be stopped. I will firstly discuss what “sulfide mining” really is, and what the impacts of a mine this size would be for both the environment and the people of Minnesota

  • Sulfide Mining Pros And Cons

    1575 Words  | 7 Pages

    the loud, ongoing sounds of drilling and being told the fish were too dangerous to eat. This is only one of many potential harms of sulfide mining. PolyMet, a new mining company would like to bring sulfide mining, also known as copper-nickel mining to Minnesota. This would involve the extraction of copper and various other metals from sulfide, hence the name. The sulfide that comes out of this type of mining can have serious consequences on the environment. Events that occurred in the past and facts

  • The Natural Environment Must Be Restored Essay

    2114 Words  | 9 Pages

    crude is preferred to sour crude [1].When distillate crude oil is processed into useful products, there will be many wastes, which dissolve in water thereby producing sour water. However, sour water consists of hazardous substances, mostly hydrogen sulfide (H2S), therefore it must be treated prior to the discharge for reuse or disposal to the water bodies. In addition, polluted water is fatal to benthic organisms and also causes depletion of dissolved oxygen [2]. This has led to some industries facing
