TR Series - Illinois Sustainable Technology Center
The ISTC TR series consists of technical reports that have gone through some peer review and generally focus on ISTC's work with industrial clients.
Development of a Method to Identify Antioxidant Chemical Fractions Isolated From Waste Products of Commercial Corn-Based Ethanol (Champaign, IL : Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, 2015-02)This final report documents the results from our WMRC seed grant to develop a rapid, quantitative assay to measure the antioxidant capacity of chemical fractions of com distillate solids (CDS). CDS is the primary by-product ...
Characterizing the Effects of Thermochemical Bioenergy Production Processes on Emerging Contaminants and Wastewater Reuse Potential (Champaign, IL : Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, 2017-08)The primary objective of this research was to improve our understanding of the water quality effects of thermochemical bioenergy production processes that can be applied to wet organic-laden wastes, such as animal manures, ...
(Champaign, IL : Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, 2017-08)Periodic dredging of lakes and waterways generates large amounts of material, often stored indefinitely in extensive sediment basins. A proposed dredging project in the Peoria Lake portion of the Illinois River will generate ...
(Champaign, IL : Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, 2017-08)The current trend in the metal-cutting industry is to find ways to completely eliminate or drastically reduce cutting fluid use in most machining operations. Recent advances in tool and machine technology have made it ...
(Champaign, IL : Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, 2017-08)Staff of the Cooperative Wildlife Research Laboratory recently used environmental contaminant concentrations in mink (Mustela vison) to monitor environmental health using Illinois watersheds as a geographical framework. ...
