Processing of Organic Fraction Food Waste (OFFW) for Co-production of Bioenergy and Nutrients

Description: About 40% of the food that is used for human consumption is wasted. As per the 2012 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency statistics, ~15% of the 251 million tons of municipality solid waste was the food waste stream. While the conventional management (example, land-filling) of solid waste and particularly, food waste is not economically viable…

Non-catalytic denitrogenation of algal biocrude: II

Description: The long-term goal of this project is to develop an innovative non-catalytic method for denitrogenation of algal biocrude obtained from hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) processing. HTL involves conversion of whole algae (without drying) performed in hot, compressed water at ~350 oC and 20 MPa (3000 psi) pressure. Algal biocrude obtained from HTL has an energy…

Reaction Condition Optimization and Product Characterization for Hydrothermal Liquefaction of Algae and Food Waste

Description: Hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) converts wet biomass at high temperatures and high pressures into a solid char, an oil-phase liquid, an aqueous phase liquid, and non-condensable gases. The different phases provide opportunities for recovery of energy and materials from wastes. In this project, HTL is used to recover energy (in the form of bio-crude oil)…
