Conversion of crude glycerol from the biodiesel industry to value added products
Crude glycerol is a major by-product of the biodiesel industries. For every 100 kg of biodiesel produced, approximately 10 kg of the byproduct glycerol is generated. With the large increase in biodiesel production, there ...
Kinetic and thermodynamic studies on pyrolysis of waste HDPE polymers
Pyrolysis is a promising technology for converting waste plastic into high-value hydrocarbons, which can help to protect the environment and improve the waste management industry. Available methods for finding kinetic ...
New generation of dispersants by grafting lignin or xylan
Synthetic dispersants are commonly used in the stabilization of various colloidal suspensions. However, their non-biodegradable and toxic natures hamper their industrial use. The use of natural polymers as dispersants for ...
Bioconversion of crude glycerol to biofuels and value-added bioproducts
Increasing demand and the rising cost of fossil fuels, as well as a concern for global climate change have shifted global efforts to utilize renewable resources for the production of a ‘greener’ energy replacement. Biodiesel, ...
Nanomaterials based electrochemical approaches for biosensing and bacterial disinfection
Electrochemical approaches to myriad medical and environmental challenges are highly attractive due to their strong potential for extensive and green applications. Point of care diagnostics through the electrochemical ...
