Sequestration of Co2 by Chemically Reactive Aqueous K2co3 in High Efficiency Adsorbents Using Microfibrous Media Entrapped Support Particulates
This work is mainly focused on developing a new adsorptive material and regenerable system for CO2 removal to supply CO2-free gas stream for low temperature and low CO2 concentration applications, such as Alkaline Fuel ...
Fuel Cell Cathode Air Filters: Methodologies for Design and Optimization
Platinum catalyst used in PEM fuel cells experience performance degradation such as reduction in efficiency and life as a result of airborne contaminants. Research on these contaminant effects suggests that the best ...
Compaction of Switchgrass for Value Added Utilization
There are increasing concerns about energy prices, availability and utilization in the world. This has led to many governmental and privately sponsored studies and research on the potential of renewable energy from biomass. ...
Optimization of Ethanol Production from Concentrated Substrate
This research optimizes ethanol production from high concentrations of cellulosic substrates in order to produce ethanol economically from renewable resources. This study identifies and quantifies the factors that influence ...
Therapeutic Contact Lenses for Comfort Molecules
Dry eye syndrome affects nearly 15% of the population and can cause extreme discomfort that interferes with quality of life. Current treatment options include delivering comfort agents such as hyaluronic acid (HA) to the ...
Bioconversion of Lignocellulosic Material into Ethanol: Pretreatment, Enzymatic Hydrolysis, and Ethanol Fermentation
Four different novel processes, ammonia recycle percolation (ARP), low-liquid ARP, two-stage (hot water-ARP) percolation, and soaking in aqueous ammonia (SAA) at room/moderate temperature, were investigated for pretreatment ...
