Lignocellulosic feedstocks are utilized for the production of fuel ethanol and butanol through dilute acid/enzymatic hydrolysis and fermentation. Hydrolysis residue, a major by-product of biomass hydrolysis, is rich in recalcitrant carbon as majority of cellulosic and hemicellulosic components are released during pretreatment. With the intention of their(More)
The use of lignocellulosic biomass as a renewable energy source is becoming progressively essential. Much attention is focused on identifying suitable biomass species that can provide high energy outputs to replace conventional fossil fuels. The current study emphasizes on some commonly available biomasses in North America such as pinewood, timothy grass,(More)
Surface wrinkled particles are ubiquitous in nature and present in different sizes and shapes, such as plant pollens and peppercorn seeds. These natural wrinkles provide the particles with advanced functions to survive and thrive in nature. In this work, by combining flow lithography and plasma treatment, we have developed a simple method that can rapidly(More)
Non-catalytic gasification of canola meal for the production of syngas was studied in lab-scale fixed bed gasifier and pilot-scale fluidized bed gasifier. Various experiments were undertaken in order to study the effects of different gasification parameters on gas composition, H2/CO ratio, gas yield, syngas yield, lower heating value (LHV), and carbon(More)
