Assessing Algal Community Structure and Nutrient Uptake Kinetics Across a Nutrient Gradient in Agricultural StreamsDownload
Streams provide important ecosystem services, such as the transformation of organic matter and water purification, while transporting water from headwaters to larger receiving waterbodies downstream. Excess nutrients introduced through anthropogenic land use put stress on aquatic ecosystems and...
Canada is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to mitigate the effects of global warming. A major source of GHG emissions is coal-based power generation. Replacing (fossil) coal with biomass-based feedstocks for the generation of electricity could help reduce these emissions....
Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Ascophyllum nodosum for the Co-Production of Biofuels and Value-Added ProductsDownload
Vargas Sepulveda, Hector Mauricio
There has been an increasing interest in the use of biorefining feedstocks for the production of value-added products. Seaweeds are of special interest, due to the fact that they do not compete for land use with food crops, have low to no lignin content, and can be grown in waste water or at sea,...
To reduce CO2 emissions, the aviation industry has begun looking into alternative biofuels as a replacement for conventional fossil-fuel based jet fuel. Although biofuels may reduce aircraft CO2 emissions, it is also important to consider how other emissions are effected such as particle...
Surface colonization is ubiquitous in marine environments, and bacteria are one of the first, or primary colonizers, to attach to newly formed surfaces. Marine algae are host to a plethora of such bacterial colonizers, one of the most abundant being roseobacters. Most of known pathogenic or...
The depletion of fossil fuels as well as the greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel use have led to growing interest in biofuel production from biomass. A new technology, thermo-catalytic reforming (TCR), is one of the contributing interests. TCR technology integrates intermediate pyrolysis...
