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 ...
MIXOTROPHIC AND EXTREMOPHILIC ALGAE FOR PHOTOSYNTHETIC BIOREFINERY
Mass outdoor cultivation of microalgae faces challenges of low productivity, contamination, inefficient CO2 supply, and difficulties in harvesting. A two-stage cultivation process was developed to address some of these ...
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 ...
Catalytic microwave torrefaction and pyrolysis of Douglas fir pellet to improve biofuel quality
The aims of this dissertation were to understand the effects of torrefaction as pretreatment on biomass pyrolysis and catalytic pyrolysis for improving biofuel quality, and the feasibility of biochar as a cheap catalyst ...
