(2016)Modern dependence on petroleum-based fuels contributes to the production of greenhouse gases and is not sustainable in the long run. One way to combat this issue is to develop alternative fuel sources such as biofuels ...
(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 ...
Improving algal biofuel production through nutrient recycling and characterization of photosynthetic anomalies in mutant algae species (2010-08-20)Continued use of fossil fuels is now widely recognized as unsustainable because of diminishing supplies and the contribution of these fuels to the increased carbon dioxide concentration in the environment. Algae represent ...
(2015-04-21)The primary goal of this PhD work is to promote synergistic integration of wastewater treatment and algal biofuel production. In particular, we proposed and then analyzed the impacts of a novel integrated system that treats ...
