Novel process for producing value-added lignin-based chemicals from alkaline effluent of chemical treatment of lignocellulosic biomass
The invention discloses a novel process to make hydrophobic interaction between lignin and ABA-block-copolymers, providing solubilization or encapsulation of the lignin in block copolymer micellar systems and utilizing the ...
A maneuverability study on a wheeled bin management robot in tree fruit orchard environments
An important activity during harvesting is bin management, which traditionally requires heavy use of seasonal skilled labor. Due to increased labor cost and uncertainty with labor availability in recent years, tree fruit ...
Renewable hydrocarbons for jet fuels from biomass and plastics via microwave-induced pyrolysis and hydrogenation processes
This dissertation aims to enhance the production of aromatic hydrocarbons in the catalytic microwave-induced pyrolysis, and maximize the production of renewable cycloalkanes for jet fuels in the hydrogenation process. In ...
MACHINE VISION SYSTEM FOR ROBOTIC APPLE HARVESTING IN FRUITING WALL ORCHARDS
Mechanization in agriculture is often regarded as one of the greatest human achievements in the twentieth century. These technological advancements have led to significant reduction in human effort in the production of ...
Aspen Modeling of the NARA Conversion Processes
The report provides a set of process flow diagrams, process parameters, and mass and energy balances, which define the NARA conversion process. The described process begins at the plant gate with the reception of forest ...
Chemoselective aerobic oxidation of aliphatic alcohols in lignin in micellar system
A micellar catalytic system for chemoselective aerobic oxidation of primary alcohol in the diol fragment guaiacylglycerol-guaiacyl ether as one of the most common structure in lignin has been proposed. The catalyst system ...
