Research Thesis Topic
Develop a Separation Method of Lignocellulosic Materials into their Components (Lignin, Cellulose and Hemicellulose) Using Nanotechnology, Catalytic Reactions and Separation Techniques
The purpose of this research is to develop efficient and economically sound method for separating the three components of any lignocellulosic material. The research will examine particle size reduction of biomass to Nano scale using mechanical and electrical methods. Also, chemicals will be used to dissolve and separate these components without losing or degrading the original materials. A commercial technique will be developed for easy and complete separation of the three main components of any lignocellulosic materials. The project will also investigate the potential of using the separated cellulose for ethanol production.
