Catalytic synthesis of specialty chemicals from sustainable resources

2016/17-2019/20 • $372,000
Green synthesis of commodity, specialty, and pharmaceutical chemicals from renewable feedstocks is one of the Grand Challenges of 21st century. The proposed work will develop new catalytic strategies combining the broad spectrum of knowledge from chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials...

Dewatering of concentrated flocculated suspensions in a screw press

2015/16-2019/20 • $267,035
Pressure filtration is an important method for removing liquids from a suspension. Difficulties arise in modeling this process for cases where the particles are soft and porous. Here the dewatering is governed by processes occurring on two different porosity scales. Although this class of...

Pressure filtration of soft porous fibre suspensions (Phase 2)

2015/16-2019/20 • $243,698
Pressure filtration is an important method for removing liquids from a suspension. Difficulties arise in modeling this process for cases where the particles are soft and porous. Here the dewatering is governed by processes occurring on two different porosity scales Although this class of problem...

Enzymatic grafting of acrylic monomers to lignin for polyurethane resin applications

2018/19 • $25,000
Lignin is the most abundant natural polyaromatic plant-derived macromolecule in the world. Majority of lignin*is currently used by pulp and paper mills as a source of energy, whereas the presence of aliphatic and aromatic*hydroxyl groups in lignin structures makes it a good candidate for...
