  • Tea Bag Water Filter

    A combination of antimicrobial nanofibers and activated carbon were produced and evaluated in a portable point-of-use filter system. The antimicrobial nanofibers were fabricated by incorporating a biocide in a poly(vinyl) alcohol solution and electrospun onto tea sachet material. The effectiveness of the filter was evaluated by its stability in water and number of microorganisms filtered out. Viable cell numbers of Klebsiella pneumoniae Xen 39, Staphylococcus aureusXen 36, Escherichia coli Xen 14, Pseudomonas aeruginosa Xen 5 and Salmonella typhimurium Xen 26 were reduced by 8 logs after filtration. Bacterial numbers from a polluted river were reduced by 6 logs for up to 7 L of water filtrational though swelling of nanofibers was already observed after filtration of 5 L of water. The antimicrobial activity of the nanofibers was reduced after soaking in water for 24 h. This low-cost purification system provides a safe and practical means of water purification in areas with poor sanitation, especially in rural communities.

  • Development of an artificial nose integrating NEMS and biological olfactory receptors

    Microsystems' including biomolecules is currently a research field in fast development and expansion. By coupling biomolecules to non-biological electronic transducers, molecular bioelectronic systems could one day be used in a wide variety of applications, including biosensors, biofuel cells and maybe even biocomputers. A major thrust in this framework is to integrate and process the chemical information at molecular level inside of a microsystem. In this sense, the animal olfactory system represents the gold standard of biosensors with its capability to identify and discriminate thousands of odorant compounds. In order to mimic the performances of natural olfactory biosensors, the overall objective of european project "SPOT-NOSED" is the development of a nanobiosensor array based on the electrical properties of single olfactory receptors. The nanobiosensor array integrates a set of nanotransducers, each of which consists of two noble metal nanoelectrodes with a single olfactory receptor anchored in between.

  • Bioalcohol production with M. aeruginosa as a novel resource

    Useful bioenergy resource without any competition with foodstuff, and if it bears fermentable higher carbohydrates, it will be novel resources for bioalcohol production. M. aeruginosa which blooms in fresh water lake and river at summer season with producing hazard toxin to animals. But it bears higher carbohydrates(56.4%) such as sucrose, cellobiose, rhamnose, galactose, xylose and glucose and also its generation time is shorter than B.braunii which is a good resource for bioenergy. And new medium for M. aeruginosa was developed with added urea 0.2g/L, increased Fe+2, and decreased Ca+2ion compared with BG11 medium. After culture with 25L and 240 litter race-way reactor, M. aeruginosa was precipitated with combination of Al2SO4and FeCl3, precipitates were hydrolyzed with c-H2SO4, followed autoclaved, sonication and neutralization, finally the extract was used for substrate of alcohol fermentation, 120mg/ml of sugar in BG11 medium, and 140 mg/ml in modified medium were produced. Fermentation was performed with 200 ml extract in 500ml flask at 30°C for 30 hours, with 3 kinds of strain, Saccharomyces cerevisiae(Sc), Pichia stipitis(Ps), Zymomonas mobilis(Zm), and mixed these strains(Sc+Ps+Zm). Pichia stipitis(0.7%) is more suitable for producing bioalcohol for M. aeruginosa extract than other strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae(0.45%) and Zymomonas mobilis(0.61%), while co-cultured strains showed higest product by 1.75%. M. aeruginosa will be a novel resource for bioalcohol fermentation.

  • The study on the effect of bioethanol to the diesel engine performance

    Because of the petrochemical fuel is shortage and the global warming's question is become more and more serious. Therefore, various countries are devoted to develop and to seek for the substituent energy resources in recent years, its main purpose to reduce greenhouse gas CO<sub>2</sub> and the harmful pollutant emissions, simultaneously, lengthen of useful life to the non renewable petrochemical fuel. In September 2007, government promotes vigorously the bioethanol, it has become one of alternative fuels in our country. Currently, the main feed source is from the carbohydrate and the starchiness, due to maturity of the technology makes the extraction of fuel more convenient, and almost no shortage of doubts. In this study, the bioethanol to do adding fuel in the super diesel, used to reducing each kind of pollutant density in the diesel engine exhaust gas discharge, and there were ethanol and purely anhydrous ethanol, according to the 5%, 10%, 15% and 20%, four kind of different proportions to adding to commercially available super diesel and making for the DI Diesel Engine do a engine performance comparison to compared with eight kind of fuels. The results indicated that the commercially available diesel fuel added four kind of different proportions of ethanol were worse than those of added purely anhydrous ethanol in various exhaust gas discharge density, it can reduce smoke roughly 18.30%~24.60%, NO<sub>x</sub> probably 4.49%~5.52% HC probably 3.42%~11.07%, exhaust gas temperature about 1.01%~2.50% and upgrade the engine torque about 0.94%~1.18%. But the fuel consumption performance showed that ethanol was worse than purely anhydrous ethanol, and the fuel consumption up to about 4.20%~7.16%.

  • Hydrogen generation from biomass-derived compounds utilizing aqueous-phase reforming

    The APR process is a unique method that generates hydrogen from aqueous solutions of these oxygenated compounds in a single step reactor process compared to the three or more reaction steps required for hydrogen generation via conventional processes that utilize non-renewable fossil fuels. Virent is currently developing the APR system for two applications: (1) on-demand hydrogen generation for PEM & SOFC fuel cells used for recharging applications (less than 500 watts) and (2) on-demand generation of hydrogen-rich fuel gas from biomass-derived glycerol and sorbitol to fuel a stationary internal combustion engine driven generator (5 kW).

  • Organic (but not green)

    Sustainable, green, renewable, organic- the words come up so often in energy and climate debates that they tend to sound as if they mean the same thing. But of course they don't. Nuclear reactors emit no carbon and are therefore in a sense green, but uranium is nonrenewable; hydropower is green and renewable but may not always be sustainable, because the ecological consequences can be bad and reservoirs are not limitless; coal is organic, but its carbon emissions make it the very opposite of green. All that is obvious enough. But even so, it may be jarring to hearas we have found and will describe-that organic biofuels can't possibly fuel a growing world economy in a sustainable manner, whereas, in principle, inorganic fuels could.

  • Shape Optimisation of Architectural Shell with Algae Photoreactors

    The research deals with integration of photobiological treatment facilities with building's architectural shell and issues of using natural light to grow algae. The goal is optimizing the shape of the architectural shell of building with algae photobioreactor units. Using microalgae photobioreactors can solve multiple tasks: getting a third-generation biofuels, carbon dioxide recycling, wastewater disinfection, oxygen regeneration, and water purification from nutrients. In our problem, algae is considered as a source of biofuel so the aim is to produce algae biomass as much as possible. The maximizing functional is the dependence of microalgae growth from illumination and temperature. The algorithm takes into account the shadow cast by the surrounding buildings and seasonal variations of the day length. To describe the temperature conditions we use the heat balance equation of a modular photobioreactor.

  • Removal of Aromatic Compounds from Wastewater by Biodiesel

    Wastewater from chemical plant, refinery and pharmaceutical factory contains many kinds of aromatic compounds. Wastewater including aromatic compounds is hazardous and difficult to be biodegraded. This study concerned the method of extracting aromatic compounds from the wastewater using biodiesel as extracting solvent. Biodiesel as solvent has some special characteristics: its solubility in water is smaller, its flash point is higher, it is nontoxic, and it is biodegradable. In this work, the solute removal rate, COD removal rate and solvent recovery were studied. In addition, the multistage countercurrent extraction experiments were carried out. The results showed that the multistage extraction rates of aniline, nitrobenzene and phenol were greater than 98.67%. The recovery performance of biodiesel was better. Biodiesel is a better extracting solvent for the wastewater containing aromatic compounds.

  • The impact of antioxidants on the oxidation stability of biodiesel

    In order to study the oxidative stability of biodiesel, the accelerating oxidation process for eight hours was carried out to determine the properties of oxidative oil, such as kinematic viscosity, acid value and peroxide value every two hours, they were compared with the ones of biodiesel/diesel blend fuel. The results show that oxidation stability of biodiesel is inferior to mineral diesel, with the increasing of biodiesel mixed ratio, oxidation stability of blend fuel decreases. The influence of four different antioxidants on oxidative stability of biodiesel were examined, a preferred one was found, it can markedly restrain the oxidative process of biodiesel.
