Abstract

Bioethanol is highly produced and most used biofuel, with lignocellulosic biomass as an ideal choice of feedstock . This study particularly highlights various strategies of second-generation (2 G)-bioethanol production from corncobs. A detailed account of the effects of different pretreatment...

Abstract

Crop straw can be converted into bioenergy through various conversion pathways. Assessing the spatial disparity of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions under different bioenergy conversion pathways could support region-specific policy decisions. This study assessed GHG emissions of seven corn straw-based ...

Abstract

As fumigants face increasing regulatory restrictions, resistance, and consumer pushback, it is vital to expand the integrated pest management (IPM) chemical toolkit for stored products. The production of biomass derived insecticides (e.g., bio-oil fraction) from byproducts of biofuel production may ...

Abstract

Haber-Bosch (HB) process, the main method for ammonia (NH3) production, contributes to near 2% of the global carbon emissions because the hydrogen input is obtained from fossil sources. NH3 production is concentrated in a few countries, adding emissions due to global distribution. Distributed...

Abstract

Due to its unique properties, nano fibrillated cellulose (NFC) has been a popular topic of research in recent years. Nevertheless, literature assessing environmental impacts of NFC production is scarce, especially for using other starting materials than wood pulp. Hence, in this study, a new...

Abstract

A technoeconomic analysis (TEA) and life cycle assessment (LCA) was conducted on the use of landfill gas (LFG) for electricity generation using an internal combustion engine. This study provides insights that can guide LFG waste to energy (WTE) operators on decisions concerning installation of...

Abstract

The aim of this work was to develop a model of an integrated biomass-to-liquid process, consisting of hydrothermal liquefaction, evaporation, gasification and Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, using lignocellulosic forest residues as feedstock, to produce hydrocarbons suitable for upgrading to drop-in ...

Abstract

Microalgae biomass is a potential feedstock for biodiesel, animal feed, biofertilizer, and other products such as bioactive compounds. Most of the reported studies describe microalgae as a green process, however, the impacts associated with its growth media and cultivation have seldom been studied. ...

Abstract

Wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) have extensive energy processes that undermine their economic and environmental performance. In this context, the integration of wastewater treatment with other biochemical processes such as co-digestion of sludge with organic wastes, and production of value-added ...
