8/11/2021 Congratulation to Zhaohui and Xueyao for their new publication titled “Aerobic granulation of single culture protist” in Process Biochemistry!

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.procbio.2021.08.014 Abstract: Thraustochytrium striatum was selected as a model protist to test the possibility of protist granulation for its good potential of organic waste valorization. Initially, only a selective settling velocity of 9 m h 1 was applied in a sequential batch reactor (SBR) with minimal granulation progress after three months. After the famine condition…

8/3/3021 We received another DOE grant

The funded study (DE-EE0009667) will be performed between 10/01/21 and 9/30/2025. It targets understanding the characteristics critical to turning low-cost, abundant municipal solid waste (MSW) into conversion-ready feedstocks for producing biofuels through gasification and solid-state anaerobic digestion (SS-AD) as targeted thermal and biological conversion technologies with final Fischer–Tropsch (F-T) processing to liquid hydrocarbon fuels. The…
