(1970)The delayed fluorescence emitted by both crystalline anthracene and chlorophyll a in algae is studied. In the case of crystalline anthracene, the blue light-excited delayed fluorescence is used to study the temperature ...
(2012-09-18)Hydrothermal liquefaction is promising technology for converting high-moisture waste biomass into energy dense “biocrude” oil that can be used for direct combustion or refined for transportation grade fuels. This study ...
(2012-09-18)Microalgae are considered as suitable feedstocks for next-generation biofuel production because of their fast growth rates and prolific yields. Moreover, growing algae has less impact on land-use for food production compared ...
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 ...
(2014-01-16)The persistence of Bacteroides ovatus, a human-associated anaerobic fecal contamination indicator bacteria species, was evaluated under simulated sunlight exposure and conditions similar to surface water and seawater. By ...
Relationships between Odor and Commonly Measured Water Quality Characteristics in Surface Water Supplies (Illinois State Water Survey, 1981)Weekly threshold odor numbers (TONs) were determined for the waters of three impoundments and the finished water produced by treatment at each impoundment site during a 2-year period. The correlation between the TONs and ...
(Illinois State Water Survey, 1973)Various techniques were used to measure the algal growth potential (AGP) of Illinois surface waters, and correlation analyses showed the filterable organic mass to be the most reliable criterion. The dry weight of organic ...
(2010-08-20)This study presents two novel methods for treating important environmental contaminants from two different wastewater streams. One process utilizes the kinetic advantages and reliability of ion exchanging clinoptilolite ...
