Co-gasification of crude glycerol with lignocellulosic biomass for enhanced syngas production (2012)
Journal Article
Skoulou, V. K., & Zabaniotou, A. A. (2013). Co-gasification of crude glycerol with lignocellulosic biomass for enhanced syngas production. Journal of Analytical and Applied Pyrolysis, 99, 110-116. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jaap.2012.10.015

The present work concerns the co-gasification of crude glycerol (CG), a by-product of biodiesel industry, with locally available lignocellulosic biomass aiming at the production of syngas and further promotion of power production in dedicated bioener... Read More

H2 enriched fuels from co-pyrolysis of crude glycerol with biomass (2012)
Journal Article
Skoulou, V., Manara, P., & Zabaniotou, A. (2012). H2 enriched fuels from co-pyrolysis of crude glycerol with biomass. Journal of Analytical and Applied Pyrolysis, 97, 198-204. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jaap.2012.05.011

Pyrolysis of glycerol has been identified as a possible route for producing high added value fuels like renewable hydrogen (H 2 ). Crude glycerol (CG) is the main byproduct of biodiesel industry and without purification it is a low added value materi... Read More

Fe catalysis for lignocellulosic biomass conversion to fuels and materials via thermochemical processes (2012)
Journal Article
Skoulou, V., & Zabaniotou, A. (2012). Fe catalysis for lignocellulosic biomass conversion to fuels and materials via thermochemical processes. Catalysis Today, 196(1), 56-66. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cattod.2012.03.035

Recently, international research is aiming at developing gasification and pyrolysis processes for the cost-effective thermochemical conversion of non-food biomass to biofuels. Gasification produces a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen, known as... Read More

Integrated environmental assessment of energy crops for biofuel and energy production in Greece (2012)
Journal Article
Fontaras, G., Skoulou, V., Zanakis, G., Zabaniotou, A., & Samaras, Z. (2012). Integrated environmental assessment of energy crops for biofuel and energy production in Greece. Renewable energy, 43, 201-209. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.renene.2011.12.010

This paper attempts an integrated environmental assessment of certain crops, their products and by-products, which are promoted in Greece, as potential raw materials for liquid biofuel and low carbon energy production. The analysis is based on the ex... Read More
