Simulation and optimisation of the pyrolysis of rice husk: Preliminary assessment for gasification applications
(Elsevier B.V., 2020-09)
Thermochemical conversion of biomass into useful products is a promising route to harness biofuels. This process is clean, renewable and can reduce the use of fossil fuel. In this study, SuperPro Designer (SPD) software ...
Energy minimization in monoethanolamine‐based CO2 capture using capacitive deionization
(John Wiley & Sons, Ltd., 2014-01-07)
Post‐combustion CO2 capture using monoethanolamine (MEA) is a mature technology; however, the high energy input requirements for solvent regeneration are still a challenge for MEA‐based CO2 capture. In this paper, a novel ...
Fast Rate Production of Biodiesel from Neem Seed Oil Using a Catalyst Made from Banana Peel Ash Loaded with Metal Oxide (Li-CaO/Fe2 (SO4)3)
Biodiesel is a possible remedy to the present toxic, finite sources and ever-diminishing crude fuels. Nonedible and locally available (Azadirachta indica) neem seed oil (NSO) as a second-generation feedstock was transformed ...
Crustacean derived calcium phosphate systems: Application in defluoridation of drinking water in East African rift valley
(Elsevier B.V., 2018-04-05)
Calcium phosphate adsorbents, derived from prawns and crabs shell biomass wastes have been developed using wet chemistry and low temperature treatment. The adsorbents were characterized by X-ray diffractometry and Fourier ...
Predicting the lowest effluent concentration in capacitive deionization
(Elsevier B.V., 2013-08-30)
Capacitive deionization (CDI) is a promising technology for desalination of brackish water with different applications such as in the pharmaceutical industry, semiconductor manufacturing, and domestic use. The CDI cell ...
Production of graded porous polyamide structures and polyamide-epoxy composites via selective laser sintering
(SAGE Publications, 2014-02-07)
Selective laser sintering was used for producing uniformly porous and graded porous polyamide structures. The porous structures were infiltrated with epoxy to produce composites. The porous and composite specimens were ...
