Journal Article
Nwokoagbara, E., Olaleye, A. K., & Wang, M. (2015). Biodiesel from microalgae : the use of multi-criteria decision analysis for strain selection. Fuel, 159, (241-249). doi:10.1016/j.fuel.2015.06.074. ISSN 0016-2361

Microalgae strain selection is a vital step in the production of biodiesel from microalgae. In this study, Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) methodologies are adopted to resolve this problem. The aim of this study is to identify the best microa... Read More

Steady state simulation and exergy analysis of supercritical coal-fired power plant with CO₂ capture (2015)
Journal Article
Olaleye, A. K., Wang, M., & Kelsall, G. (2015). Steady state simulation and exergy analysis of supercritical coal-fired power plant with CO₂ capture. Fuel, 151, (57-72). doi:10.1016/j.fuel.2015.01.013. ISSN 0016-2361

Integrating a power plant with CO₂ capture incurs serious efficiency and energy penalty due to use of energy for solvent regeneration in the capture process. Reducing the exergy destruction and losses associated with the power plant systems can impro... Read More

Simplification of detailed rate-based model of post-combustion CO₂ capture for full chain CCS integration studies (2014)
Journal Article
Oko, E., Wang, M., & Olaleye, A. K. (2015). Simplification of detailed rate-based model of post-combustion CO₂ capture for full chain CCS integration studies. Fuel, 142, (87-93). doi:10.1016/j.fuel.2014.10.083. ISSN 0016-2361

As post-combustion CO₂ capture (PCC) technology nears commercialisation, it has become necessary for the full carbon capture and storage (CCS) chain to be studied for better understanding of its dynamic characteristics. Model-based approach is one op... Read More

Techno-economic analysis of chemical looping combustion with humid air turbine power cycle (2014)
Journal Article
Olaleye, A. K., & Wang, M. (2014). Techno-economic analysis of chemical looping combustion with humid air turbine power cycle. Fuel, 124, (221-231). doi:10.1016/j.fuel.2014.02.002. ISSN 0016-2361

Power generation from fossil fuel-fired power plant is the largest single source of CO₂ emission. CO₂ emission contributes to climate change. On the other hand, renewable energy is hindered by complex constraints in dealing with large scale applicati... Read More
