[Paper] Optimal conditions for hemicelluloses extraction in a semi-continuous reactor

Optimal conditions for hemicellulose extraction from wooden biomass in a semi-continuous system have been assessed in this work. This study would constitute the first stage for a profitable and green industrial process. Eucalyptus globulus was selected as raw material due to its low water consumption, high growth and its efficiency in lignocellulose production. Download for […]

[Paper] The use of modelling to understand the mechanism of hydrogen peroxide direct synthesis from batch, semibatch and continuous reactor points of view

Hydrogen peroxide direct synthesis was experimentally studied in three different reactors, namely the batch, semibatch and trickle bed reactors (TBR), using a new promising catalyst based on Pd/K2621. Excellent results were obtained from the experimental point of view, achieving high H2O2 selectivities, around 90% for a short contact time in the batch reactor, 60% in […]

[Thesis] Fractionation process of surplus biomass by autohydrolysis in subcritical water obtaining added value products by Florencia M. Yedro

In the past years, the challenge is a society based on the concept of bioeconomy. This term refers to the sustainable production and conversion of biomass into a range of food, health, fibre, industrial products and energy developed in futures biorefineries. The hydrothermal process has been proposed to develop sustainable and efficient conversion of natural […]
