Abstract Water consumption has become a serious concern in renewable fuel production as demand for biofuels increases to address environmental issues associated with the use of fossil fuels. In recent years, several research groups have suggested seawater (SW) as a promising alternative to fresh water (FW) for the production of biofuels. However, the use of seawater rather than fresh water in the fermentation process is still a relatively unexplored area of research. In this paper, the tolerance...

Abstract In this work, microalgae–microbial fuel cell (MMFC) was used as an alternative method to treat cafeteria waste in Indonesia to produce electricity and microalgal biomass simultaneously. The organic contents from cafeteria waste were used as substrates by Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Spirulina platensis acted as an oxygen producer for oxygen reduction reaction on the cathode side. A salt bridge was used as a separator and ion exchanger. Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) was used as an anode ...

Abstract Assessing some of the very basic physical and chemical properties, such as moisture content, specific gravity, fixed solids, volatile solids, pH, VFA/Alkalinity, hydrolyzable solid matter, orthophosphate concentration, sulfate concentration, and inorganic nitrogen concentration, of fruit and vegetable waste (FVW) is fundamental towards its efficient management. The present study establishes a cost-effective measurement technique/protocol to characterize FVW that not only helps in unders...

Abstract The aim of the study was to explain the effect of pressure and compaction time, number of layers and compaction cycles of biomass from six energy plant species intended for silage on the density of mini silos as well as energy consumption and compaction indicators. A mathematical model was developed to predict the silage density against changed process factors. Chopped biomass was compacted in four layers using three cycles at 17–63 kPa pressure and 6–10 s per cycle. The greatest change...

Abstract In the current scenario of climate change, the search for alternative energy sources is very important to reduce the use of fossil fuels. Undesired biomass (weed) from agricultural fields can be used to produce biofuels through nano catalysts enhanced gasification and process. Lignocellulosic part of weedy plants represents a potential alternative feedstock for economic production of bioethanol. Large numbers of weedy plant species are growing all over the world. However, high energy re...

Abstract The aim of this research it is to show how the biogas anaerobic digestion from treatment of recycled pulp and paper wastewater industry (RPPW) can be a renewable energy. Furthermore, a kinetic study of hydrolyzed COD and productions of methane from UASB digester treating RPPW for the continuous test is established. This will allow to reduce the organic matter deposited in landfills and CO2 emissions and to find viable solutions to minimize the environmental impact of RPPW. This study an...

Abstract In this work, the progression and microbial considerations have been taking into account in the adaptation of thermophilic sludge-inoculum to anaerobic co-digestion of Sherry-wine distillery wastewater (SW-DW) and sewage sludge (SS). For this purpose, the effect of increasing concentrations of SW-DW as co-substrates with SS was evaluated by measuring biodegradability parameters, biomethane productivity and shift in microbial community. Optimal productivity occurred when 50–75% of SW-DW ...

Abstract Perennial grasses are valuable biomass feedstocks due to their potentially high biomass yield and environmental benefits. This study aimed to compare 7 cool season: tall wheatgrass, bulbous canary grass, reed canary grass, tall fescue, perennial ryegrass, orchard grass, and smooth brome grass and 3 warm season perennial grasses: miscanthus, switchgrass, and giant reed for biomass yield, quality, and energy balance at 2 harvesting periods (autumn and winter to early spring) over 3 growin...
