Abstract Lignin, as a renewable bioresource, has been widely explored in cellulosic biofuel and several other industries. There are limited applications of lignin in the energy industry, especially in rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors, even though tremendous research work has been done regarding the use of lignin in these fields. It is vital to take lignin into consideration because its usage not only improves the performance of these devices but also reduces the cost, contributing to o...

Abstract The importance of graphene and its derivatives for “clean energy” applications became apparent over the last few years due to their exceptional characteristics, especially regarding electrical, thermal and chemical properties. In this review article we examine the recent progress and some of the challenges in the syntheses and modification of graphene-based materials, including energy storage applications as electrodes in Li-ion batteries (LIBs). Various synthesis routes have been used ...

Abstract Solar CO 2 /H 2 O splitting via two-step thermochemical cycles of metal oxides is a promising path for solar energy conversion to carbon-neutral, liquid hydrocarbons from virtually inexhaustible resources, water and (waste) carbon dioxide, with high theoretical efficiency potential. Cerium-based oxides have seen enormous interest and research efforts since they were proposed for this application, mainly due to their good stability at high temperatures and fast kinetics in redox reaction...

Abstract In this work, advanced technologies concerning warm gas carbon capture and hydrogen production from carbon-based fuels are reviewed, with a primary focus on the elevated-temperature pressure swing adsorption process coupled with the water gas shift reaction and in-situ CO 2 adsorption. Key progress in the development of adsorption kinetic models, study of adsorption mechanisms, synthesis of efficient CO 2 adsorbents, design and process optimization of adsorption/desorption reactors, and...

Abstract Cool flames play a critical role in ignition timing, burning rate, burning limits, engine knocking, and emissions in conventional and advanced combustion engines. This paper provides an overview of the recent progress in experimental and computational studies of cool flames. First, a brief review of low-temperature chemistry and classical studies of cool flames is presented. Next, the recent experimental and computational findings of cool flames in microchannels, microgravity droplet co...

Abstract Fouling in gas turbines is caused by airborne contaminants which, under certain conditions, adhere to aerodynamic surfaces upon impact. The growth of solid deposits causes geometric modifications of the blades in terms of both mean shape and roughness level. The consequences of particle deposition range from performance deterioration to life reduction to complete loss of power. Due to the importance of the phenomenon, several methods to model particle sticking have been proposed in lite...

Abstract Diesel engines are preferred over spark ignition counterparts for heavy-duty applications and power generation plants because of their higher efficiency, durability, and productivity. Currently, the research interests have been propelled towards renewable and sustainable diesel fuels such as biodiesel in order to address the environmental and energy security challenges associated with these energy systems. However, the most challenging issue concerning large-scale production of biodiese...

Abstract Intermediate temperature membrane-supported CO 2 thermochemical reduction using renewable energy is a clean approach for reusing CO 2 . To implement this technology at scale, stable catalytic membrane materials with fast kinetics should be developed, and reactor designs and system integrations should be optimized. In this review, we highlight major advancements in experimental and numerical efforts on mixed ionic-electronic conducting (MIEC) membrane-supported CO 2 thermochemical reduct...

Abstract Many practical soot-emitting combustion systems such as diesel and jet engines rely on diffusion flames for efficient and reliable operation. Efforts to mitigate soot emissions from these systems are dependent on fundamental understanding of the physicochemical pathways leading from fuel to soot in laminar diffusion flames. Existing diffusion flame−based soot studies focused primarily on over-ventilated coflow flame where the fuel gas (or vapor) issues from a cylindrical tube into a co-...
