• Preliminary analysis on the pulping of corn stover using aqueous ethanol and supercritical carbon dioxide 

    Young, Chia-Wei (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
    Currently, the two main chemical processes used to produce pulp - the Kraft and the Sulfite method - emit large amount of environmental pollutants. The organosolv pulping method, which uses organic solvents at high ...
  • Supercritical water gasification of waste residues 

    Wickramathilaka, Malithi (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
    A batch reactor was built in the University of Missouri Carbon Recycling Center to explore the thermo-chemical conversion of motor oil as a model compound, in supercritical water. Used motor oil was identified as a main ...
  • The use of supercritical fluids to process biomass for fuel 

    Wilkinson, Nikolas (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
    Soybean flakes were extracted using supercritical carbon dioxide at 48.3 MPa and 80 °C, which is a higher temperature than previously reported. Several operational parameters were explored to determine their effect on ...
