Microalgae and duckweed were grown and harvested over a three-month period in CO(2)-sparged helioreactors and open earthen ponds, respectively. The biomass feedstocks were thermolyzed in a thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA) and fixed-bed reactor to produce a fuel precursor coined "bioleum". Analysis of the thermolysis kinetics revealed an increase in the(More)
Hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and other polluting emissions produced by diesel engines are usually much lower than those by gasoline engines. However, higher combustion temperature in diesel engines cause substantially larger percentage of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions. Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) is a well proven technology for reducing NOx(More)
A imple model is developed to examine the performance of a supported catalytic membrane within which occurs the co-utive--parallel reaction system given by A + B + R, with rate = k, pm*’ p:, and A + R + P, with rate = kap22pF,. Closed-form sohtticms reveal that segregation of reactanti ft and B to oppmits sides of the membrane IS an effective strategy for(More)
