    Razieh Keshavarzi, Mehdi Jahangiri*

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.6, pp. 1381-1401, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2024.050029

    Abstract Nowadays, the use of renewable energies, especially wind, solar, and biomass, is essential as an effective solution to address global environmental and economic challenges. Therefore, the current study examines the energy-economic-environmental analysis of off-grid electricity generation systems using solar panels, wind turbines, and biomass generators in various weather conditions in Iran. Simulations over 25 years were conducted using HOMER v2.81 software, aiming to determine the potential of each region and find the lowest cost of electricity production per kWh. In the end, to identify the most suitable location, the Technique for Order Preference by Similarity… More > Graphic Abstract

    Mingyue Miao1,#, Fei Wang1,#, Qing Li1, Longchen Tao1, Chenchen Dai1, Yu Liu1, Shujuan Han1, Wenshuai Chen1,*, Ping Lu2,*

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.12, No.3, pp. 443-455, 2024, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2023.030412

    Abstract The rheological properties of nanocellulose aqueous suspensions play a critical role in the development of nanocellulose-based bulk materials. High-crystalline, high-aspect ratio, and slender nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC) were extracted from four biomass resources. The cellulose nanofibrils and nanofibril bundles formed inter-connected networks in the NFC aqueous suspensions. The storage moduli of the suspensions with different concentrations were higher than their corresponding loss moduli. As the concentration increased, the storage and loss modulus of NFC dispersion increased. When the shear rate increased to a certain value, there were differences in the changing trend of the rheological behavior More > Graphic Abstract

    Journal of Polymer Materials, Vol.38, No.3-4, pp. 219-230, 2021, DOI:10.32381/JPM.2021.38.3-4.4

    Abstract A dimorphic fungus Benjaminiella poitrasii contains high chitin/chitosan (35% of the cell wall) in the mycelial (M) form than its yeast (Y) form (20% of the cell wall). However, the relative proportion of chitosan is more in yeast form cells (chitosan: chitin ratio, 6:1) than mycelial cells (chitosan: chitin ratio, 3:1). Using the Taguchi design of experimental (DOE) approach, interactions among eight different parameters showed that carbon source (starch, 10 g/L), incubation time (48 h), inoculum (M and Y mixed 10%), yeast extract (6 g/L) and peptone (10 g/L), were optimum for maximum biomass production.… More >

    Improving the Accuracy of Vegetation Index Retrieval for Biomass by Combining Ground-UAV Hyperspectral Data–A New Method for Inner Mongolia Typical Grasslands

    Ruochen Wang1,#, Jianjun Dong2,#, Lishan Jin3, Yuyan Sun3, Taogetao Baoyin2, Xiumei Wang*

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.93, No.2, pp. 387-411, 2024, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2024.047573

    Abstract Grassland biomass is an important parameter of grassland ecosystems. The complexity of the grassland canopy vegetation spectrum makes the long-term assessment of grassland growth a challenge. Few studies have explored the original spectral information of typical grasslands in Inner Mongolia and examined the influence of spectral information on aboveground biomass (AGB) estimation. In order to improve the accuracy of vegetation index inversion of grassland AGB, this study combined ground and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) remote sensing technology and screened sensitive bands through ground hyperspectral data transformation and correlation analysis. The narrow band vegetation indices were… More >

    Abstract In order to study the combustion characteristics of tar in biomass gasifier inner wall and gasification gas, “tobacco stem semi-tar inside furnace”, “tobacco stem tar inside furnace” and “tobacco stem tar out-of-furnace” were subjected to thermogravimetric experiments, and the combustion characteristics and kinetic characteristics were analyzed. The result shows that “tobacco stem semi-tar inside furnace” has the highest value and “tobacco stem tar out-of-furnace” is has the lowest value on ignition characteristics, combustion characteristics and combustible stability; “tobacco stem semi-tar inside furnace” has the lowest value and “tobacco stem tar outside furnace” has the highest More > Graphic Abstract

    Biomass Carbon Improves the Adsorption Performance of Gangue-Based Ceramsites: Adsorption Kinetics and Mechanism Analysis

    Haodong Li1, Huiling Du1,*, Le Kang1, Yewen Zhang1, Tong Lu1, Yuchan Zhang1, Lan Yang2, Shijie Song2

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.11, No.12, pp. 4161-4174, 2023, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2023.028877

    Abstract The large accumulation of coal gangue, a common industrial solid waste, causes severe environmental problems, and green development strategies are required to transform this waste into high-value-added products. In this study, low-cost ceramsites adsorbents were prepared from waste gangue, silt coal, and peanut shells and applied to remove the organic dye methylene blue from wastewater. We investigated the microstructure of ceramsites and the effects of the sintering atmosphere, sintering temperature, and solution pH on their adsorption performance. The ceramsites sintered at 800°C under a nitrogen atmosphere exhibited the largest three-dimensional-interconnected hierarchical porous structure among the… More > Graphic Abstract

    Abstract Nigeria, often referred to as “the giant of Africa,” boasts a sizable population, a thriving economy, and abundant energy resources. Nevertheless, Nigeria has yet to fully harness its renewable energy potential, despite its enormous capacity in this field. The goal of this review paper is to thoroughly examine the difficulties and untapped opportunities in utilizing biomass for bioenergy production in Nigeria. Notably, Nigeria generates substantial volumes of biomass annually, primarily in the form of agricultural waste, which is often either discarded or burned inefficiently, resulting in significant ecological and environmental damage. Therefore, an efficient approach… More > Graphic Abstract

    Acidic Magnetic Biocarbon-Enabled Upgrading of Biomass-Based Hexanedione into Pyrroles

    Zhimei Li1, Kuan Tian2, Keping Wang2, Zhengyi Li2, Haoli Qin1,*, Hu Li2,*

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.11, No.11, pp. 3847-3865, 2023, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2023.030122

    Abstract Sustainable acquisition of bioactive compounds from biomass-based platform molecules is a green alternative for existing CO2-emitting fossil-fuel technologies. Herein, a core–shell magnetic biocarbon catalyst functionalized with sulfonic acid (Fe3O4@SiO2@chitosan-SO3H, MBC-SO3H) was prepared to be efficient for the synthesis of various N-substituted pyrroles (up to 99% yield) from bio-based hexanedione and amines under mild conditions. The abundance of Brønsted acid sites in the MBC-SO3H ensured smooth condensation of 2,5-hexanedione with a variety of amines to produce N-substituted pyrroles. The reaction was illustrated to follow the conventional PallKnorr coupling pathway, which includes three cascade reaction steps: amination, loop closure… More > Graphic Abstract

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.11, No.11, pp. 3789-3806, 2023, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2023.031354

    Abstract Dyes are pervasive contaminants in wastewater, posing significant health risks to both humans and animals. Among the various methods employed for effective dye removal, adsorption has emerged as a highly promising approach due to its notable advantages, including high efficiency, cost-effectiveness, low energy consumption, and operational simplicity compared to alternative treatments. This comprehensive review focuses on investigating adsorbents derived from biowastes and biomass, specifically carbon-based and non-conventional adsorbents, for the removal of malachite green, a widely used dye known for its toxic and carcinogenic properties. Carbon-based adsorbents encompass two main types: activated carbon and biochar, More > Graphic Abstract
