Next Generation of Clean Pipeline Technology for Energy Transport

This is a multi-university interdisciplinary project that aims at developing a new pipeline technology for transport of oil products at a lower cost and environmental footprint. An innovative pipeline flow manipulation technology is currently pursued to reduce pressure drop, and thus lower work requirements for energy transport, lower the wall friction, which reduces the corrosion and erosion of pipes, and increase mixing, which lowers the risk of slur formation and blockage in pipelines.
