    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2013)

    Lignocellulosic Biomass Pyrolysis product comparison from a micropyrolyzer , batch and continuous reactor systems This project aims at advancing the current state of knowledge of biomass pyrolysis by developing an understanding of the pyrolytic reaction mechanisms of different feedstocks , and to...

  2. Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Old Corrugated Cardboard (OCC) Fines from Recycled Linerboard Mill Waste Rejects

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2013)

    During the manufacture of linerboard from recycled OCC (old corrugated cartons) , a significant fraction of the fibers are broken into small fine particles. These fines are rejected into the solid waste stream placing a cost for landfilling and posing environmental problems. The fines rejects are...

  3. Operations of a Stratified Downdraft Gasifier On MSW for Development of a Waste to Energy Process

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2013)

    Southern Research is developing a small-scale MSW and biomass conversion process based on gasification to produce renewable power and liquid fuels. At the heart of the process is a simple , low cost gasifier that has been proven in several installations worldwide as scales of 1 to 50 tons/day and...

  4. Hydrodeoxygenation Or Reforming of Biomass? a DFT Study

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2013)

    Cost effective conversion of plant and municipal solid waste material (biomass) into materials of higher energy density , to be utilized in the framework of the current carbon-based supply infrastructure , is one of the major challenges for a sustainable future. Aqueous-phase processes proceeding...

  5. Biofuels: Metrics and Challenges

    Webinar

    Learn about the critical economic, environmental and social issues that will impact a biofuels project along with the technical programs that could enhance a particular project.

  6. Energy Storage: Research Directions, Applications, Limitations

    Webinar

    Energy storage technologies have recently been gaining attention, spurred on by the shift toward sustainable energy. This webinar aims to explore a sampling of energy storage research.

  7. Natural Gas Future

    Webinar

    Natural gas, at prices significantly below BTU parity with oil for a long time to come, will certainly play a pivotal role in world energy supply and will move towards becoming the premier fuel of the world economy. A significant feature of future gas prices is that they are likely to be technology driven, similar to oil prices, rather than resources driven.

  8. Aspen Simulation of Mobile Biomass to Liquid Facility – the Beauti-Fuel Concept

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2012)

    The BeauTi-fueL facility is a mobile biomass to liquid facility, where the key equipment of the biomass to liquid process is placed into a commercial container and can be transported to a biomass site for liquid fuel production. This facility can be used to process the biomass such as agriculture...

  9. Effects of Farm Wastes Co-Digestion On Microbial Community, Methane Production, and Fiber Quality As Biorefining Feedstock

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2012)

    The performance of anaerobic digestion is highly correlated to the compositions of its substrate and microbes. A lab-scale anaerobic digestion process of a mixture of dairy manure and corn stover in continuous stirred-tank reactor (CSTR) was performed to investigate the influence of additional...

  10. Molten Salt Gasification (MSG) of Refinery Wastes to Produce Hydrogen

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Annual Meeting, 2012)

    Western Hydrogen Limited is developing a process called Molten Salt Catalyzed Gasification (MSG) that allows the production of high-pressure synthesis gas at ~138 bar (~2000 psig) or higher without the need for compression. This makes the process very efficient since the compression of synthesis...
