[Thesis] Enhanced extraction of natural substances using microwave energy

Process intensification is proposed using microwave and ultrasound energy in order to improve organic material liberation from natural cells (wastewater sludge, microalgae and grape marc). Enhanced process kinetics are achieved after a short pre-treatment stage up to the boiling temperature, followed by the conventional procedure. The novel technologies are compared to conventional thermal treatment in […]
