Abstract
Abstract Massive amounts of waste tires are generated globally posing disposal and recycling challenges. Waste tires were gasified in subcritical and supercritical water to study their degradation behavior during syngas production. The process parameters including temperature (325 °C to 625 °C), reaction time (15 min to 60 min) and feed concentration (5 wt% to 20 wt%) were optimized to maximize gas yields from waste tires. The highest total gas yields (34 mmol/g), hydrogen yields (14.4 mmol/g) and carbon gasification efficiency (42.6%) were achieved at optimal temperature (625 °C), reaction time (60 min) and feed concentration (5 wt%). The application of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts improved hydrogen yields from waste tires in the order: Ni/SiO2-Al2O3 (19.7 mmol/g) > Ru/Al2O3 (17.9 mmol/g) > Ba(OH)2 (16.9 mmol/g) > Ca(OH)2 (16.7 mmol/g) > Mg(OH)2 (15.4 mmol/g). The results suggest waste tires as a potential resource for recovery of hydrogen-rich fuel gas through hydrothermal gasification.

Abstract The optimization of microwave-assisted hydrothermal carbonization for corn stalk was conducted to study the effects of reaction temperature (122.7–257.3 °C), residence time (4.8–55.2 min), and biomass loading (0.98–6.02 g/50 mL H2O) using the response surface methodology. The hydrochars produced from hydrothermal carbonization of cork stalk under different reaction conditions were characterized to understand their physical, chemical, and structural properties. Statistical analysis shows...

Abstract The complex mixture of gasified tar model (phenol, toluene, naphthalene, and pyrene) was steam reformed for hydrogen production over 10 wt% nickel based catalysts. The catalysts were prepared by co-impregnation method with dolomite promoter and various oxide supports (Al2O3, La2O3, CeO2, and ZrO2). Steam reforming was carried out at 700 °C at atmospheric pressure with steam to carbon molar ratio of 1 and gas hourly space velocity of 20 L/h·gcat. The catalysts were characterised for redu...

Abstract We have investigated the stability and activity of a co-precipitated Mg promoted Ni/Al 2 O 3 catalyst (Ni-Mg-Al) for supercritical water gasification (SCWG) of various biomass model compounds and real biomass. Phase stability and activity recovery of the Ni-Mg-Al catalyst were first compared with a catalyst prepared by impregnation method. It was found that the co-participated catalyst showed higher activity recoveries than the impregnated catalyst due to the stable Ni crystal size. The...

Abstract Hydrothermal gasification in subcritical and supercritical water is gaining attention as an attractive option to produce hydrogen from lignocellulosic biomass. However, for process optimization, it is important to understand the fundamental phenomenon involved in hydrothermal gasification of synthetic biomass or biomass model compounds, namely cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. In this study, the response surface methodology using the Box-Behnken design was applied for the first time ...

Abstract Supercritical water gasification technology is widely used in the conversion of organic waste because of its clean and efficient characteristics. As a high polymer, plastic may undergo complex processes such as depolymerization and gasification in supercritical water, and its optimal operating conditions have rarely been reported. In this paper, the experiments of high impact polystyrene (HIPS) plastic supercritical water gasification were carried out at a reaction temperature of 500–80...

Abstract Subcritical and supercritical water gasification of petroleum coke and asphaltene was performed at variable temperatures (350–650 °C), feed concentrations (15–30 wt%) and reaction times (15–60 min). Nickel-impregnated activated carbon (Ni/AC) was synthesized as a catalyst for enhancing syngas yields at optimal gasification conditions (650 °C, 15 wt% and 60 min). Structural chemistry of precursors and chars developed at different gasification temperatures was studied using physicochemica...

The global energy demand has laid emphasis on the exploration of alternate sources of energy. With the application of many thermochemical and biochemical technologies, waste biomass can be converted into green fuels. Gasification is one of the most effective thermochemical (biomass-to-gas) technologies that can transform organic substrates into combustible syngas. Supercritical water gasification is an iteration of conventional gasification that uses water as the reaction medium to efficiently d...

Abstract In this study, the model food waste was gasified to hydrogen-rich syngas in a batch reactor under supercritical water condition. The model food consisted of rice, chicken, cabbage, and cooking oil. The effects of the main operating parameters including temperature (420–500 °C), residence time (20–60 min) and feedstock concentration (2–10 wt%) were investigated. Under the optimal condition at 500 °C, 2 wt% feedstock and 60 min residence time, the highest H2 yield of 13.34 mol/kg and tota...

Abstract Biofuels produced from lignocellulosic feedstocks are gaining popularity because of the elevating energy demand, increasing greenhouse gas emissions, escalating fuel prices and dwindling fossil fuel resources. Therefore, it has become important to seek alternative energy resources from renewable waste biomass. In this study, agricultural crop residues such as soybean straw and flax straw were gasified in subcritical water (300 °C) and supercritical water (400 and 500 °C) for H2 producti...

Abstract Lignocellulosic feedstocks such as forestry biomass and agricultural crop residues can be utilized to generate biofuels and biochemicals. In addition, a large amount of non-plant residues or biogenic wastes is also generated worldwide that has huge potentials but remains underutilized. Converting these organic waste materials through thermochemical and biochemical processes into biofuels is widely regarded as a remedial approach to address waste management and clean energy problems.
