CATALYTIC MICROWAVE PYROLYSIS OF BIOMASS FOR RENEWABLE PHENOLS AND FUELS
Bio-oil is an unstable intermediate and needs to be upgraded before its use. This study focused on improving the selectivity of bio-oilby catalytic pyrolysis of biomass using activated carbon (AC) catalysts. Firstly, the ...
LIPID PRODUCTION, PHOTOSYNTHESIS ADJUSTMENT AND CARBON PARTITIONING OF MICROALGA CHLORELLA SOROKINIANA CULTURED UNDER MIXOTROPHIC AND HETEROTROPHIC CONDITIONS
Microalgae have attracted growing attention for renewable biofuel production. In this work, microalga Chlorella sorokiniana was explored for its potential for lipid production. The results showed that C. sorokiniana could ...
A Multi-Criteria Decision Support Tool for Biorefinery Siting
Cellulosic and advanced biorefineries face significant challenges in the road to commercialization. Many have failed to reach or maintain commercialized status due to significant upfront construction costs, high feedstock ...
Understanding cellulose primary and secondary pyrolysis reactions to enhance the production of anhydrosaccharides and to better predict the composition of carbonaceous residues
Pyrolysis is a promising method to convert biomass into an oil that can be refined into valuable fuels and chemicals as well as a carbonaceous residue that can be converted into adsorbents. In pyrolysis, cellulose, the ...
Aromatic hydrocarbons production from catalyst assisted microwave pyrolysis of Douglas fir sawdust pellet
The aims of this dissertation were to understand the effects of zeolite as a catalyst for improving biofuel quality on in-situ microwave assisted catalytic pyrolysis and ex-situ catalytic cracking close coupled to microwave ...
