The green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has the ability to produce molecular hydrogen (H2), a clean and renewable fuel, through the biophotolysis of water under sulphur-deprived anaerobic conditions. The aim of this study was to advance the development of a practical and scalable biophotolytic H2 production process. Experiments were carried out using a(More)
The unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has the ability to photosynthetically produce molecular hydrogen under anaerobic conditions. It offers a biological route to renewable, carbon-neutral hydrogen production from sunlight and water. A better understanding of the parameters affecting the algal growth and hydrogen production kinetics is(More)
The structural and dynamic properties of micellar solutions of erucyl bis(hydroxyethyl)methylammonium chloride blended with 2-propanol, in the presence of KCl, have been investigated by means of light scattering and rheological experiments. In the dilute regime, the micellar growth is larger than expected from mean-field or scaling models. The results(More)
Smectite clay minerals and their suspensions have long been of both great scientific and applications interest and continue to display a remarkable range of new and interesting behaviour. Recently there has been an increasing interest in the properties of mixed suspensions of such clays with nanoparticles of different size, shape and charge. This review(More)
This paper aims to pull together the main points, messages and underlying themes to emerge from the Discussion. It sets these remarks in the context of where Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) fits into the spectrum of carbon mitigation solutions required to meet the challenging greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets set by the COP21 climate change(More)
In this work we report phase equilibrium measurements on the system (methane + carbon dioxide + water) carried out with a high-pressure quasi-static-analytical apparatus. The measurements have been made under conditions of two-phase vapor-liquid equilibrium, three-phase vapor-liquid-liquid equilibrium (VLLE), and four-phase vapor-liquid-liquid-hydrate(More)
This paper investigates the scaling-up of cyanobacterial biomass cultivation and biohydrogen production from laboratory to industrial scale. Two main aspects are investigated and presented, which to the best of our knowledge have never been addressed, namely the construction of an accurate dynamic model to simulate cyanobacterial photo-heterotrophic growth(More)
