What is it about?

we illuminated the effect of reaction temperature on the products distribution and biocrude properties from HTL of the Chlorella sp. grown in wastewater from anaerobic digestion (AD) of chicken manure via HTL. The highest biocrude yield (30.35%, daf) and energy recovery rate (49.6%) were both achieved at 330 °C, while the highest HHV (37.17 MJ/kg) of biocrude oil was achieved at 290 °C. The biocrude oil yield increased from 25.46 to 30.35% as the temperature increased from 270 to 330 °C.

Why is it important?

Fossil fuel usage is considered unsustainable due to both environmental and economic concerns. Algae biomass-based biofuel is drawing more and more attention due to its promising use as alternative energy


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations. This article also lead to rare disease groups contacting me and ultimately to a greater involvement in rare disease research.
