Renewable Energy, Environmental, Byproduct Utilization & Biosensors Lab
The REEBUB group designs solutions for bioenergy and environmental applications:
- Use of solar stills for cost-effective drying of wet plant biomass and animal wastes
- Low-cost biomass gasification research for on-farm use and hydrothermal liquefaction to convert wet biomass slurries (wood chips, animal wastes) into bio-oils
- Production of biodiesel from a variety of feedstocks using an integrated approach (from harvesting techniques, storage and post-harvest processing)
- Extraction and trans-esterification of oils into biodiesel using microwave technology
