Abstract Thermal hazards of reactive chemicals have been a major concern due to the unceasing occurrences of fire and explosion accidents in industry. Understanding thermal threats of these chemicals not only contributes to the process safety and sustainability in the research and development (RD whereby, the main limitations and challenges to be faced are explored. The discussed key points include, the classification and reactivity of typical reactive chemicals, the fundamental steps towards th...
Abstract Internal combustion engines are among the main sources of soot particles, especially when non-homogeneous and high fuel-air ratio conditions are achieved in the combustion chamber (both diesel and direct injection spark ignition engines). Environmental regulations for the road transportation limit the number and mass of particles significantly, making the use of diesel and gasoline particle filters -DPF, GPF- essential for trapping and burning off, or regenerating, the soot. The tendenc...

Abstract Hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) is a thermochemical conversion technology that shows promising commercial potential for the production of biocrude oil from wet biomass. However, the inevitable production of the hydrothermal liquefaction aqueous phase (HTL-AP) acts as a double-edged sword: it is considered a waste stream that without additional treatment clouds the future scale-up prospects of HTL technology; on the other hand, it also offers potential as an untapped nutrient and energy ...

Abstract Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy with high efficiency. The high cost of platinum catalysts and sluggish reaction kinetics are the main challenges in the development of low-temperature fuel cells. Although significant efforts have been made to prepare effective non-precious-metal-based oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) catalysts, suitable anodic catalysts are still far from realization. The reported onset potential of a non...

Abstract Electric vehicles play a crucial role in reducing fuel consumption and pollutant emissions for more sustainable transportation. Lithium-ion batteries, as the most expensive but least understood component in electric vehicles, directly affect vehicular driving range, safety, comfort, and reliability. However, the overall performance of traction batteries deteriorates significantly at low temperatures due to the reduced electrochemical reaction rate and accelerated health degradation, suc...

Abstract Not all accidental releases of flammable gases and vapors create explosions. Most releases do not find an ignition source, and of those that do ignite, most of them result in deflagrations that generate low or moderate overpressures. Under some circumstances, however, it is possible for deflagration-to-detonation transition (DDT) to occur, and this can be followed by a propagating detonation that quickly consumes the remaining detonable cloud. In a detonable cloud, a detonation creates ...

Abstract In the past decades, the bioelectrochemical system (BES) has developed into a versatile platform to sustain the conversion of various substances for the generation of energy and energy-efficient production of chemicals. Taking advantage of microbial extracellular electron transfer, the BES is able to perform a variety of value-added element conversion reactions, including production of electric energy from organic carbon, synthesis of chemicals from carbon dioxide, oxidation of sulfide ...

Abstract Large outdoor fires are an increasing danger to the built environment. Wildfires that spread into communities, labeled as Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) fires, are an example of large outdoor fires. Other examples of large outdoor fires are urban fires including those that may occur after earthquakes as well as in informal settlements. When vegetation and structures burn in large outdoor fires, pieces of burning material, known as firebrands, are generated, become lofted, and may be car...

Abstract It has been predicted that several changes will occur when premixed flames are subjected to the extreme levels of turbulence that can be found in practical combustors. This paper is a review of recent experimental and DNS results that have been obtained for the range of extreme turbulence, and it includes a discussion of cases that agree or disagree with predictions. “Extreme turbulence” is defined to correspond to a turbulent Reynolds number (ReΤ, based on integral scale) that exceeds ...

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...
