Respirable-sized dust particles from a clay mine and mill were examined for aluminium and silicon content by scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive X-ray analysis at incident electron energies of 5-20 keV. Most of the high silica content particles, those which had a silicon to silicon plus aluminium signal fraction, measured at 20 keV, of 0.9 or(More)

Commercial lignin is a by-product of pulping and the emerging bio-refinery industries. Herein, we report the hydrothermal treatment (HTT) or conversion (HTC) of three commercial types of lignin to carbonaceous materials. HTC of lignin was carried out in an autoclave in the presence of water at temperature and pressure of approximately 300 °C and 1000 psi(More)
