Two-step method for production of multiple biofuels and products from Non-Lignocellosic Biomass
Project ID: D2015-31Background Biomass of non-lignocellulosic origin is typically composed of one or more of three components – protein, starch and oils (such as triacylglycerides or other lipids). One of the concerns with thermochemical processing of protein-containing biomass is contamination of bio-oil with nitrogen-containing compounds (s...
High Yield Algal Biomass Production Without Concentrated CO¬2 Supply Under Open Pond Conditions
Project ID: D2016-72Background Biorefineries are working to create sustainable solutions via conversion of biomass. Microalgae has been a popular choice for biomass inputs due to fast growth rates and their ability to grow on waste waters and marginal lands. Cultivation of microalgae in an open pond system is a less expensive alternative than clos...
