RR Series - Illinois Sustainable Technology Center
The ISTC RR series consists of the final reports of projects funded by ISTC's research program.
(Champaign, IL : Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, 2015-05)Phenolic compounds with antioxidant activity toward soybean-derived fatty acid methyl esters (SME, used as a model for biodiesel) were obtained by pyrolysis from wood (birch hardwood), corn stover, and lignin. The lignins ...
Sorption of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) to Biochar and Estimates of PAH Bioavailability (Champaign, IL : Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, 2014-12)Biochars were produced by slow pyrolysis of corn stover under a nitrogen atmosphere at 450°, 550°, and 750°C. The chars were subjected to artificial aging, i.e., repeatedly freezing and thawing or incubating moist char at ...
(Champaign, IL : Illinois Hazardous Waste Research and Information Center, 1985-06-30)The purpose of the Statewide Landfill Inventory is to determine the location of all known landfill, impoundment, and land application waste disposalsites in Illinois in which hazardous wastes may have been disposed. To ...
(Champaign, IL : Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, 2013-03)The highly industrialized Grand Calumet River basin includes an extensive wetlands complex that has been severely degraded through heavy industrial activity, sewage and industrial discharges, landfills, and hazardous waste ...
Identification of the Sediment-Associated Contaminants in the Illinois River Complex using Toxicity Identification Evaluation (TIE) (Champaign, IL : Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, 2012-03)The difficulty of assessing risk of sediment-associated contaminant mixtures to benthic ecosystems is often attributed to understanding the bioavailable fraction of each contaminant. These issues have led to the development ...
