  • A New Class of Branched Single Chain Surfactant for Enhanced Oil Recovery Reported

    AlphaGalileo , 28th Mar 2019

    Fabrication of a glass micromodel and testing of these materials were carried out by Sajad Kiani, a PhD student at ESRI, Swansea University.

    Professor Barron said: “Despite the desire to shift to renewable energy, the global demand for oil is not abating, and we must find ways to enhance recovery of resources using methods with low environmental impact. So-called green hydrocarbon technology is one of the focus areas of ESRI, along with CCUS and alternative sustainable energy sources, for a multifaceted approach to lowering emissions and the environmental impact of energy and resource production”.
