From Wet Algae to Liquid Fuels
- Type: Archived Webinar
The presentation provides some general background on biofuels and on the use of algae as a biomass source for making liquid fuels. The presentation focuses on R&D efforts related to processing algae in its wet state, which eliminates an energy intensive drying step. Viewers will get an appreciation for some of the technical issues involved with algal biofuels, and they will get an overview of the R&D landscape as it relates to processing wet algal biomass.
Phillip Savage has been on the Michigan faculty since 1986. He earned a B.S. from Penn State and M.Ch.E. and PhD degrees from the University of Delaware. Phil’s research and teaching focus on the rates, mechanisms, and engineering of chemical reactions that move us toward a more environmentally sustainable society.
Current research projects deal with reactions that can be used for hydrogen production from biomass and for liquid transportation fuel production from algae. His research group uses experiments, modeling, and simulation to explore different reaction systems. His...Read more
