Our mission is to produce sustainable biofuels, chemicals and materials from low-grade waste such as biomass and plastic. Promoting the usage of renewable products is something we are deeply committed to doing in order to lessen our carbon footprint and create a more sustainable future.
HYDROTHERMAL PROCESSING OF WASTE PLASTIC
BIOFUELS FROM CRUDE OLIVE POMACE VIA HYDROTHERMAL LIQUEFACTION
HYDROTHERMAL LIQUEFACTION OF ELAEIS GUINEENSIS TRUNKS
This work aims to perform a batch scale demonstration of chemical recycling using a real stream of contaminated waste plastic and converting it into high-value products such as a biofuel. For this, we use hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) technology, which is a robust and versatile technology to convert highly heterogeneous and contaminated materials into useful products (chemicals and monomers).
This research examines the feasibility of hydrothermal liquefaction to produce liquid biofuels from waste olive tree prunning and crude olive pomace. Using a design of experiments (DoE) approach, the impacts of the catalyst dosage, temperature, and residence time were assessed. The results demonstrated that the employment of a catalyst can boost bio-oil yield while requiring less operating conditions. The study emphasizes the opportunity to use these olive waste products to generate renewable energy and support a circular economy.
This study investigates the feasibility of converting Elaeis guineensis trunks (OPTs), a form of waste biomass produced by the oil palm industry during crop rehabilitation, into bio-oil. The effects of catalyst dosage, reaction temperature, and time were assessed for producing bio-oil using hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL). The production of high-quality bio-oil from OPTs, according to the results, can increase the industry's sustainability.
BIOFUELS FROM ENCROACHER BUSH VIA HYDROTHERMAL LIQUEFACTION
This research examines the feasibility of hydrothermal liquefaction to produce liquid biofuels from encroacher bush via HTL. Using a design of experiments (DoE) approach we assess the impacts of the catalyst dosage, temperature, and residence time.
