    • Co-digestion of sweet sorghum bagasse with scientific and crude glycerols for electricity generation 

      Fosso-Kankeu, Elvis; Marx, Sanette; Ribberink, Jandri A.; Van den Bergh, Jacobus P.J. (PSRC, 2014)
      With the global fossil fuel supplies dwindling and the alarming increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, the need for alternative, clean energies, from carbon neutral sources is pressing. This impetus advanced research ...
    • Fermentation of lignocellulosic biomass using ultrasonic pretreatment 

      Schabort, C.J.; Faul, C.; Nagel, M.; Marx, S. (ETA-Florence Renewable Energies, 2014)
      The potential fermentation of the sugars derived from water hyacinth, sweet sorghum bagasse and amaranth using indirect ultrasonic pretreatment, was investigated. The optimum sugar and ethanol yield for the ultrasonic bath ...
    • Susceptibility of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to inhibitors and impact on bioethanol production yield 

      Fosso-Kankeu, Elvis; Marx, Sanette; Meyer, Anton (PSRC, 2014)
      There have been increasing concerns in developing countries over the competition between food and energy resulting from the production of bioethanol from edible biomass. Second generation lignocellulose feedstock is an ...
    • Ultrasonic assisted biodiesel production 

      Schabort, C.J.; Marx, S.; Hövener, D. (ETA-Florence Renewable Energies, 2014)
      One of the biggest hurdles in the production of biodiesel is the high production cost compared to petroleum-derived diesel. Even though the mechanical agitation utilised during biodiesel production is effective, it is ...
