Title: Innovative in-situ Microwave/ultrasonic Reactor for Algal Biomass Harvesting and Hiofuel Production
Mississippi State University’s team is developing innovative methods for algal biomass harvesting and biodiesel production by using microwave and ultrasound irradiation techniques. This energy-efficient process utilizes biological materials to concentrate algal biomass and produces biofuels via a single-pot conversion method in an environmentally-sustainable manner. Take a look and learn about the latest technologies in biodiesel production from these researchers.
