(Jul 23) The 66th Hiroshima University Biomass Evening Seminar(The 37th Hiroshima University ACE Seminar)

Biomass Project Research Center, Hiroshima University, and HOSTY Association are co-organizing the Hiroshima University Biomass Evening Seminar. This seminar covers topics from the fundamentals of biomass to the latest information so that it can contribute the activities on biomass in this district. The 66th seminar will be held as follows. Please join.

“Biodiesel production from microalga Nannochloropsis”
Nannochloropsis is a genus of marine microalga that can produce high quantities of lipids in the form of triacylglycerol, which has recently attracted attentions as a potential feedstock for biofuel production. In order to achieve the practical use of algal biodiesel, we are investigating optimal culturing conditions and genome-editing tools for the development of improved Nannochloropsis. In this lecture, I’d like to introduce Nannochloropsis and our study of the optimization of culturing condition.

“Reaction rate analysis for supercritical water treatment of guaiacol”
The effect of residence time in the range of 15 to 90s on supercritical water gasification of guaiacol as model compound of lignin was studied at temperature of 600 ℃, pressure 25 MPa, and fixed concentration of guaiacol of 0.5 wt%. The result in total organic carbon decreased while char product increased with residence time. However, the residence time did not affect carbon gasification efficiency.

We will hold the discussion meeting from 18:00 (800 JPY needed). Join this meeting, too if you are available.
