Characterization and Pelletization of Humulus lupulus neomexicanus Hops

Description: New Mexico’s hop industry is small (8 farms, 20 acres in 2019) but growing to provide local and specialty hops to New Mexico’s craft brewers. One specific opportunity in New Mexico is the production of Humulus lupulus neomexicanus hops, a subspecies of hops native to the region possessing unique essential oil and bitter acid…

Analytical Methods for Measurement of Uranium and Radium in Phytoremediation Studies

Description: Northwestern New Mexico is home to hundreds of uranium mines that are no longer in operation. At many of these sites, groundwater and soil are contaminated with uranium and uranium radioactive decay products that can pose chemical toxicity and radiation exposure hazards. Phytoremediation, the use of plants to concentrate and remove contaminants, is one…

Comparison of Hops and Hemp for Value-Added Agriculture in New Mexico

Description: Hops (Humulus lupulus) and hemp (Cannabis sativa) are both members of the family Cannabaceae, flowering plants often used for their secondary metabolites, especially terpenes. Both have potential to be economically important in New Mexico, in particular the development of new and unique varieties of hops for brewing, and for production of fiber, oils, seed…

Analysis and Pelletization Methods in Support of New Mexico Hop Growers

Description: New Mexico’s hop industry is only a few years old but is growing to provide local and specialty hops to New Mexico’s craft brewers. To be marketable and to manage their own hop quality, hop growers need to characterize their hops for alpha/beta acid content, essential oil content, and hop storage index (HIS), a…

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)…
