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 ...
Thermochemical liquefaction of water hyacinth
(ETA-Florence Renewable Energies, 2013)
The use of non-edible biomass should be investigated as alternatives for biofuel production. Aquatic weeds like water hyacinth (WH) are classified as third generation crops. WH in South Africa is an invasive species that ...
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. ...
