Probing synergies between lignin-rich and cellulose compounds for gasification (2020)
Journal Article
Taylor, M. J., Michopoulos, A. K., Zabaniotou, A. A., & Skoulou, V. (2020). Probing synergies between lignin-rich and cellulose compounds for gasification. Energies, 13(10), Article 2590. https://doi.org/10.3390/en13102590

The fixed bed gasification of lignin rich and deficient mixtures was carried out to probe the synergistic effects between two model compounds, Lignin Pink (LP) rich in Na and Cellulose Microcrystalline (CM). Reaction conditions utilized the most comm... Read More about Probing synergies between lignin-rich and cellulose compounds for gasification.
