Hydrothermal Treatment is an Innovative way of Nutrient Recovery and Waste Minimization

Description: Recovery of the nutrients (primarily, nitrogen and phosphorous) in solid waste is important for better land nutrient management practices and remediation of nutrient pollution of surrounding waterways, and is a path forward to generating renewable nutrients. Hydrothermal treatment (HT) employs the ‘subcritical water as a medium (combination of heat and water at high temperature…

Heterogeneous Catalysts in Hydrotreatment of Algae into liquid fuels

Description: Hydrothermal liquefaction of algae produces an energy-dense (bio)crude that can be catalytically upgraded into liquid transportation fuels. The current project prepares the student gain insight into role of heterogeneous catalysts in a hydrothermal environment through complete background readings from journal articles and textbooks. Completion Objectives: Review background information on hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) of algal…
