Abstract This study explores the use of an engineered char produced from the pyrolysis of anaerobically digested fiber (ADF) to adsorb phosphate from aqueous solutions. Two series of engineered chars were produced. The first series was a CO2 activated (CA) char produced via slow pyrolysis between 350 and 750 °C. The second series was a nitrogen doped (ND) char activated in the presence of ammonia at comparable temperatures. Proximate analysis, elemental composition, gas physisorption, Inductivel...

Abstract Nitrogen functionalization of graphene significantly enhances the physical and chemical properties of graphitic materials, increasing their applicability as sorbents, heterogeneous catalysts, and electronic components. Being able to selectively induce different nitrogen functionalities via treatment conditions is key to the design and optimization of such materials. Here, we use density functional theory to study the thermodynamic stability of nitrogen functionalities in three graphene ...

Bio-oil derived from fast pyrolysis of lignocellulosic materials is among the most complex and inexpensive raw oils that can be produced today. Although commercial or demonstration scale fast pyrolysis units can readily produce this oil, the pyrolysis industry has not grown to significant commercial impact due to the lack of bio-oil market pull. This paper is a review of the challenges and opportunities for bio-oil upgrading and refining. Pyrolysis oil consists of six major fractions (water 15-3...

The aim of this paper is to report fuel properties and torrefaction behavior of woody biomass from the Colombian highlands. Four wood species (Eucalyptus grandis, Pinus Maximinoi, Pinus patula, and Gmelina arborea) were selected due to their potential for expansion as bioenergy crops. Torrefaction of these feedstocks for the production of pellets for both domestic and international markets is a promising way to take advantage of these resources. Herein we report the impact of torrefaction temper...

There is increasing interest in developing biobased alternative jet fuels to meet rising aviation demand and address environmental concerns. Uncertainty of oil prices, issues of energy security, and rising greenhouse gas concentrations have spurred the development and acceptance of alternative, economically viable, environmentally sustainable production pathways. The objectives of this study were to review alternative jet fuel feedstock candidates and relevant conversion data to provide a baseli...

A novel miniaturized, transparent reactor system for use as either a research or educational tool was developed for investigating biomass char gasification with oxygen to determine the kinetic parameters. Parametric temperature and pressure data taken can be used to distinguish the validity of assumptions inherent in the Avrami, the random pore (RPM), the unreacted core shrinking (UCSM), and a UCSM hybrid models (HM). The results demonstrate the UCSM for spherical and cylindrical geometries, and...

Abstract The ever-increasing consumption of material goods with economic growth is resulting in an increasing generation of municipal solid waste (MSW) and the rapid filling of landfills. Fractions of municipal solid waste containing wood-based products have the potential to be used for the development of value added products. In this paper we produced and characterized biochar and pyrolysis vapors from municipal solid waste (MSW) woody fractions to demonstrate their suitability towards soil ame...

Mo–W carbide was synthesized via temperature-programmed reduction to generate a β-Mo2C phase with bulk morphology. The catalyst was characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), N2 physisorption, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), H2-chemisorption, and ammonia temperature programmed desorption (NH3-TPD) to investigate the synergistic effect of the combination of molybdenum and tungsten in carbide. Due to the interaction of Mo–W, the bimetallic carbide exhibited a significantly higher density...
