Thermochemical Expert

What does a thermochemical expert or a thermochemical consultant do? Thermochemical processes are most commonly employed for converting biomass and waste into fuel or processed further to produce value added chemicals. Major thermal conversion routes include incineration, pyrolysis, and gasification. The selection of the appropriate technology depends on the desirable end user application. The relative…

Heat Transfer Issues in Mechanically Agitated Fermenters

Heat Transfer Issues in Mechanically Agitated Fermenters? Aerobic fermentation generates a significant amount of heat, which must be removed to maintain a constant temperature. The main heat sources are metabolic heat generation, agitator power input, and compressor power input. Removing the heat is made more challenging by the fact that fermenters are operated at mild…

Environmental Review – Renewable Energy Projects

What is an environmental review in a renewable energy project? Environmental review is the identification and evaluation of the potential impact a renewable energy project (REP) may have on natural and human resources. As is typical for many industrial projects, a comprehensive review of environmental impacts for a REP is used to determine the full…

Renewable Natural Gas

Renewable Natural Gas is produced from organic materials at farms, landfills, wastewater treatment plants, and food waste systems.  As an alternative to fossil fuel natural gas, RNG systems with good RNG technology can reduce greenhouse gas emissions. RNG is a manufactured product developed from the raw, methane-containing biogas produced by anaerobic digestion, in turn, a…

Thermochemical Conversion

Thermochemical conversion is a broad classification of technologies, including combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, torrefaction, and liquifaction, utilizing temperature and pressure rather than chemical or biological catalysts or enzymes for the production of desired chemicals or fuels. Thermochemical conversion technologies may be applied to fossil and biogenic feedstocks – their action to decompose complex organic molecules to…
