Evaluation of bio-char based products as hydrotreating catalysts for the production of renewable fuel
Increasing demand for alternative fuel from fossil fuel exists which has led to the development of new technologies for the production of bio-fuels. One such technology involves the hydrotreatment of vegetable oils such ...
Effect of biomass feedstock composition on biochar properties produced through hydrothermal liquefaction
The effect that 6 different biomass feedstocks have on biochar was investigated. The biochar was produced through hydrothermal liquefaction at temperatures of 260˚C and 300˚C. The effect of temperature was also investigated. ...
Adsorption of metal ions from fine coal tailings dump waste water using bio-char
Coal mining operations produce large amounts of tailings which contains heavy metals. Heavy metals such as cadmium (Cd) can cause environmental problems. The adsorption capacities of biochars produced from spent coffee ...
