Publication date: November 2019Source: Journal of Catalysis, Volume 379Author(s): Kyungho Lee, Mi-Eun Lee, Jae-Kon Kim, Byeongcheol Shin, Minkee ChoiAbstractThe direct hydroconversion of triglycerides into biojet fuel (i.e., cascade reactions including hydrogenation, deoxygenation, and hydrocracking) is challenging, even though it is beneficial in terms of process intensification. This is because the minute amount of CO produced during deoxygenation can poison the metal component of various metal–acid bifunctional catalysts, causing undesired overcracking and rapid catalyst deactivation through coke formation. To ove...

Publication date: November 2019Source: Harmful Algae, Volume 89Author(s): Drajad S. Seto, Lee Karp-Boss, Mark L. WellsAbstractClimate driven increases in ocean temperature and pCO2 have the potential to alter the growth and prevalence of future Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs), but systematic studies on how climate drivers influence toxic algal species relative to non-toxic phytoplankton are lacking. In particular, little is known about how future climate scenarios will affect the growth of the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium catenella, which is responsible for the paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) events that threaten the h...
