Abstract Nowadays, use of microalgae as a cheap feedstock and heterogeneous catalysts for biodiesel production has gained considerable interest as they mitigate environmental problems induced by the conventional process of biodiesel production using homogeneous alkali catalysts. However, separation of heterogeneous catalysts from tissues and carcass of microalgae is an important task. For this reason, a magnetic Fe2O3–Al2O3 nanocatalyst promoted by potassium groups was synthesized using a modifi...

Abstract Orange Peel Waste (OPW) is a widely produced residue whose management is complicated by its physical and chemical properties. Anaerobic digestion (AD), which is commonly used for the treatment and exploitation of many biodegradable wastes, is inefficient on OPW due to the presence of essential oils (mainly d -Limonene) as well as the low pH, which cause the process to be unstable. Here we explore the effect of alkaline pre-treatment of OPW and of the addition of granular activated carbo...

Abstract Until now, few studies on the valorisation of torrefaction condensable volatiles (condensates) have been performed. The composition and toxicity of torrefaction condensable volatiles determine their possible applications. Therefore, a study on the composition of wheat-barley straw torrefaction condensates, combined with toxicity tests, was performed. This analysis was mainly aimed at the utilisation of these condensates as an anaerobic digestion substrate. The torrefaction process was p...

Abstract Woody biomass has a considerable potential for energy purposes specially after densification processes which convert these materials into solid biofuels with higher energy density. This study focuses on the energy and environmental assessment of pellet production system from vine and olive grove woody biomass. The life cycle assessment (LCA) from grape and olive cultivation up to packed pellet production, ready for delivery to final users was conducted to quantify the eco-profile of agr...

Abstract Currently, industry is migrating towards sustainable practises, where the wastes produced in one process are used as feedstock for other productive purposes. In the present study, we show that a by-product from the fabrication of second-generation bioethanol can be used to improve the production of biogas from corn stover. The washing water generated during the pretreatment stage of bioethanol production was recovered and reused as a co-substrate for the anaerobic digestion of corn stov...

Abstract Pyrolysis converts lignocellulosic biomass into bio-oil, which result in at least four times with more energy density than raw biomass. Bio-oil could be exploited in heating, power generation or extraction of chemicals. However, quality of bio-oil is not adequate enough to be used in equipment for energy applications. Product yield and l composition of bio-oil have a close relationship with feedstock chemical composition, thus some pre-treatments are used to optimize bio-oil properties,...

Abstract The last decade has witnessed a significant growth in biodiesel production in order to mitigate the adverse impact of CO2 emissions. Given that the EU biodiesel is mainly produced from rapeseed oil, higher carbon taxes are likely to raise the production of biodiesel which, in turn, increase the prices of this important edible oil. Nevertheless, the association between the EU emission trading scheme and the biodiesel market remains understudied. In this paper, we aim to fill this vacuum ...

Abstract The parameters characterizing biomass flow through the harvester units in laboratory conditions were determined for shoots of big bluestem, giant miscanthus, Spartina pectinata , giant knotweed, Virginia mallow, and Jerusalem artichoke harvested in two growth phases. The input energy for cutting and harvesting of plants was also compared with the outlet energy contained in methane from biomass harvested in the second growth phase. The power needed to cut the biomass was inversely propor...

Abstract The aim of this work was to evaluate the efficiency of different cell disruption techniques on oil extraction from Y. lipolytica oleaginous yeast. The techniques tested were mechanical expression (ME), moderate pulsed electric field assisted mechanical expression (MPEF-ME), high pulsed electric fields (HPEF), high voltage electrical discharges (HVED), ultrasound (US), and high-pressure homogenization (HPH). The impact of each cell disruption technique on fatty acid composition was inves...
