Hydrothermal liquefaction of microalgae: Influence of varying cell compositions on biocrude yield and quality (2014-05-30)There is strong interest in microalgae-derived biofuel as a sustainable replacement for fossil fuels due to the numerous advantages of microalgae as a feedstock. Hydrothermal Liquefaction (HTL) is a thermochemical process ...
(2012-09-18)The hydrolysis of biomass yields a sugar mixture consisting mainly of glucose, arabinose and xylose. Effective metabolism of all sugars in biomass by a microorganism is regarded as essential for commercial biofuel production. ...
(2011-01-14)Recently there is growing concern about high nutrient loadings in surface waters as a result of intensive agriculture, resulting in hypoxia in costal ecosystems. There is simultaneous growing interest in the cultivation ...
(2013-08-22)Biofuels and chemicals from lignocellulosic biomass are a renewable and sustainable alternative to traditional fossil fuel sources. However, the reality of commercial lignocellulosic biofuels depends on feasibly overcoming ...
Understanding the physiological and molecular basis of chilling tolerance across species of the C4 genera Miscanthus and Spartina (2012-06-27)Increasing demand and decreasing reserves of oil together with uncertainties in external supply and global atmospheric change has created a need for alternative and renewable fuel sources. Plant based fuels are expected ...
