Tester publishes study on hydrothermal liquefaction of acid whey
Jeff Tester, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and the David Croll Sesquicentennial Fellow, published a new study in the Aug. 30 issue of ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering.
The study, "Hydrothermal Liquefaction of Acid Whey: Effect of Feedstock Properties and Process Conditions on Energy and Nutrient Recovery," focuses on:
- Characterizing the effect of dairy wastewater properties and process conditions on the formation of HTL products such as biocrude oil and aqueous co-product, the yields of elements in the products, and the energy recovery in biocrude through the use of a feedstock with well-defined composition, and
- Optimizing the HTL process conditions to maximize energy and nutrient recovery from different feedstock compositions.
