Why is it important?

The unique aspect of our work is the use of Bayesian optimization to improve the prediction capabilities of machine learning algorithms for hydrochar higher heating values (HHV). This approach had the lowest prediction errors and highest R2 compared to other methods and has practical applications in evaluating the energy content of hydrochars quickly and efficiently. Additionally, our findings have implications for optimizing biomass conversion processes and improving energy efficiency while managing biomass more sustainably. Our research is timely as there is a growing need to find more sustainable ways of using natural resources, and our work can contribute to this global challenge by enabling better decision-making processes in the industry. By highlighting the practical applications of our work, we hope to increase readership among stakeholders interested in sustainable energy, including policymakers, experts, and industry professionals.
