Abstract:

Degassing to remove Hydrogen is an expensive and time consuming problem. One solution is to find innovative degassing processes. Another is to eliminate one of the sources of hydrogen namely Stearic Acid which is the surfactant of choice. This proposal attempts to replace stearic acid with pure carbon. Some early work suggested this change might be possible. The proposal focuses on the basis of replacement.
