In this study, heavy metals were removed and crude bio-oil was yielded from a heavy metal hyperaccumulator harvest, Sedum alfredii Hance, through hydrothermal upgrading process. This paper reports on the optimization of process parameters for the removal of heavy metals (zinc, lead, and copper) and for the upgrading of crude bio-oil from this biomass in an autoclave. Parameters such as granularity, temperature, pressure, and duration were examined for their effect on the removal efficiency of… CONTINUE READING
