Issue Highlights

In the November 2014 issue of CJChE, the extraction of functional proteins from industrial broth has attracted interest lately as a way to overcome limited natural resources. In their article, Dadashi et al. developed a computational fluid dynamics model to describe the hydrodynamics and mass transfer phenomena taking place during continuous protein extraction from using a liquid-solid circulating fluidized bed (LSCFB) ion exchange system. They demonstrated that the model was a robust tool to simulate, scale up, and optimize the LSCFB ion exchange systems for protein extraction process.

In the October 2014 issue of CJChE, Safronov et al. revisit a classical chemical engineering problem on the modelling of chemically reacting coal particles. One of the basic challenges in this system is the realistic modelling of transport properties in the gas phase and the coupling of the boundary conditions at the chemically reacting interface with the gas flow. The authors carried out a numerical study of the influence of the gas flow on heat and mass transfer in the boundary layer of a chemically reacting coal particle.

2013 Award for Best Graduate Student Paper

We congratulate Mohammed Alaqqad for his award winning paper onThe permeability of wood-chip beds: The effect of compressibility. Dr. Alaqqad will be presented the 2013 Award for Best Graduate Student Paper during the 63rd Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference, which takes place in Fredericton, N.B. from October 20-23, 2013.

Mohammed Alaqqad, Ph.D. earned his Ph.D. degree in 2011 in Chemical and Biological Engineering from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, BC, Canada. He received his undergraduate education from the American University of Sharjah, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering in 2007.
