Effects of the Non-ionic Surfactant Tween 80 on the Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Model Cellulose and Lignocellulosic Substrates
(Virginia Tech, 2011-08-25)
Non-ionic surfactants are known to enhance the biochemical conversion of lignocellulosic (LC) biomass to bioethanol. Their mechanisms of action, however, are incompletely understood. This research was conducted to elucidate ...
Inventorying trees in an urban landscape using small-footprint discrete return imaging lidar
(Virginia Tech, 2011-03-28)
Automation of urban tree inventory using remote sensing is needed not only to reduce inventory costs but also to support carbon accounting for urban planners and policy-makers. However, urban areas are heterogeneous and ...
Fractional Catalytic Pyrolysis Technology for the Production of Upgraded Bio-oil using FCC Catalyst
(Virginia Tech, 2011-12-19)
Catalytic pyrolysis technology is one of the thermochemical platforms used to produce high quality bio-oil and chemicals from biomass feedstocks. In the catalytic pyrolysis process, the biomass is rapidly heated under inert ...
