Proc. ASME. MSEC2013, Volume 2: Systems; Micro and Nano Technologies; Sustainable Manufacturing, V002T04A006, June 10–14, 2013
Paper No: MSEC2013-1143
... costly process in cellulosic biofuel manufacturing. This study investigated effects of ultrasonic vibration-assisted pelleting on the sugar yield of biomass pretreated by the two pretreatment methods. Results showed that, for both pretreatment methods, pellets produces higher sugar yield than particles...

Paper No: MSEC2013-1044
.... Ultrasonic vibration-assisted (UV-A) pelleting can significantly increase the density of cellulosic biomass by compressing raw cellulosic biomass into pellets. Pellet density and durability are two important physical properties of a pellet. In this study, a multiple response surface methodology was employed...

... Cellulosic biomass is abundantly available in the nature. It is an attractive feedstock to make alternative fuels to petroleum-based transportation fuels. Because of low bulk density and irregular shape, raw biomass materials are difficult to handle, transport, and store. Pelleting can increase...

... to high manufacturing costs of cellulosic ethanol. Pelleting can increase the density of cellulosic biomass and reduce their transportation and handling costs. Ultrasonic vibration-assisted (UV-A) pelleting is a new pelleting method. Earlier studies show that moisture content and particle size have...

...1 AN EXPERIMENTAL COMPARISON OF TWO PELLETING METHODS FOR CELLULOSIC ETHANOL MANUFACTURING ABSTRACT Ethanol produced from cellulosic biomass is an alternative to petroleum-based transportation fuels. However, manufacturing costs of cellulosic ethanol are too high to be competitive. Low density...

... of cellulosic biofuels. Another bottleneck factor in manufacturing of cellulosic biofuels is the low efficiency of the enzymatic hydrolysis of cellulosic biomass materials resulting in a low sugar yield. Ultrasonic vibration-assisted (UV-A) pelleting can increase the density of cellulosic biomass feedstocks via...

Pelleting processes are used to produce biomass pellets which have higher density and are easier to handle in transportation and storage. Before going through pelleting processes, original cellulosic biomass materials are milled...
