PLASMA ASSISTED CATALYST SYNTHESIS
Our lab uses non-thermal plasmas to modify ceramic catalysts supports in order to engineer the ceramic surface prior to the deposition of metal salts.
WOODY BIOMASS PYROLYSIS
Our lab carries out reductive pyrolysis in order to produce bio-oils deficient in oxygen. We have pyrolyzed wood biomass as well as algae solids.
AQUEOUS PHASE REFORMING
We have investigated different catalysts for the APR of ethanol and butanol. The low temperature, high pressure process is ideal for high water gas shift activity to optimize hydrogen production.
