    • Conversion of sugarcane bagasse to carboxylic acids under thermophilic conditions 

      Fu, Zhihong (2009-05-15)
      With the inevitable depletion of the petroleum supply and increasing energy demands in the world, interest has been growing in bioconversion of lignocellulosic biomass (e.g., sugarcane bagasse). Lignocellulosic biomass ...
    • Countercurrent Enzymatic Saccharification of Lignocellulosic Biomass and Improvements Over Batch Operation 

      Zentay, Agustin Nicholas (2014-05-05)
      Transportation fuels are the major driver for fossil fuel production, a burden that many countries have tried to ease by blending fossil fuels with biofuel substitutes such as ethanol. Current U.S. ethanol production relies ...
    • Ethanol Waivers: Needed or Irrelevant? 

      Griffin, James M.; Dahl, Rachel (The Mosbacher Institute for Trade, Economics & Public Policy, 2012-10)
      Because of the magnitude of the existing corn harvest shortfall coupled with the large ethanol mandates, policymakers face extreme uncertainties looking into the future with potentially large economic ramifications. ...
    • Ethyl Alcohol Production. 

      O'Neal, Henry (Texas Agricultural Extension Service, 1981)
    • Ethyl Alcohol Production. 

      O'Neal, Henry (Texas Agricultural Extension Service, 1982)
    • Impacts of Biofuel Production and Navigation Impediments on Agricultural Transportation and Markets 

      Ahmedov, Zafarbek (2013-08-22)
      This study investigated the impacts of U.S. biofuel production and barge navigation impediments on agricultural transportation and markets. Both past and future impacts of U.S. biofuel production levels mandated by the ...
    • Investigation of the Photocatalytic Degradation of Ethanol and Acetone 

      Liu, Y.; Ding, B.; Dong, S. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 2006)
      In-situ transmission Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy has been used to study the photocatalytic oxidation of acetone, ethanol and the interaction between acetone and ethanol. Compared with the degradation of acetone ...
    • The Latest Unanticipated Consequence in the Ethanol Fiasco 

      Griffin, James M. (Mosbacher Institute for Trade, Economics & Public Policy, 2013-12)
      Until recently, the 2007 ethanol mandates have been a story of very small environmental and security benefits and large, unexpected increases in food prices as corn was diverted from food to fuel uses. Now we have another ...
    • Market penetration of biodiesel and ethanol 

      Szulczyk, Kenneth Ray (Texas A&M University, 2007-09-17)
      This dissertation examines the influence that economic and technological factors have on the penetration of biodiesel and ethanol into the transportation fuels market. This dissertation focuses on four aspects. The first ...
    • Modeling and Optimization of a Bioethanol Production Facility 

      Gabriel, Kerron Jude (2011-10-21)
      The primary objective of this work is to identify the optimal bioethanol production plant capacity and configuration based on currently available technology for all the processing sections involved. To effect this study, ...

      Michalka, Jacquelyn (2007-07-14)
      Temulose is a wastewater stream created in the production of medium-density fiberboard. It has a high sugar content, and therefore cannot be released into standard wastewater systems. Current methods for disposal of the ...
    • Production and Use of Alcohol on the Farm. 

      O'Neal, Henry; Rothe, Joe M. (Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    • Production and Use of Ethanol on the Farm. 

      Anonymous, (Texas Agricultural Extension Service, 1994)
    • Regional Differences in Corn Ethanol Production: Profitability and Potential Water Demands 

      Higgins, Lindsey M. (2010-07-14)
      Through the use of a stochastic simulation model this project analyzes both the impacts of the expanding biofuels sector on water demand in selected regions of the United States and variations in the profitability of ethanol ...
    • Retrofitting analysis of integrated bio-refineries 

      Cormier, Benjamin R. (Texas A&M University, 2007-04-25)
      A bio-refinery is a processing facility that produces liquid transportation fuels and/or value-added chemicals and other products. Because of the dwindling resources and escalating prices of fossil fuels, there are emerging ...
    • The Renewable Fuel Standard and Ethanol Pricing: A Sensitivity Analysis 

      McNair, Robert (2014-04-18)
      Volatile oil prices and political uncertainty surrounding uninterrupted oil supplies has pressured the U.S. Congress and economists to search for substitutes. In response, the U.S. has enacted policies to directly support ...
    • Transportation risk assessment for ethanol transport 

      Shelton Davis, Anecia Delaine (2009-05-15)
