Selected papers from the latest issue:

Mechanistic modeling of the thermal cracking of methylcyclohexane near atmospheric pressure, from 523 to 1273 K. Identification of aromatization pathways   Original Research Article

Available online 28 February 2013
Roda Bounaceur, Valérie Burklé-Vitzthum, Paul-Marie Marquaire, Luc Fusetti


► A detailed kinetic model of methylcyclohexane thermal cracking is proposed. ► It is constructed on the basis of more than 1200 free-radical and molecular reactions. ► It is validated on a large range of temperature (723-1173K), near atmospheric pressure. ► The aromatization occurs via dehydrogenation reactions of cyclohexene and alkylcyclohexenes. ► Cyclohexene and alkylcyclohexenes are formed by decompositions at high temperature and by Diels-Alder reactions at low temperature.

Optimization and Deactivation Study of Fe-Ce/HZSM-5 Catalyst in Steam Catalytic Cracking of Mixed Ethanol/Naphtha Feed   Original Research Article

Available online 28 February 2013
Ali Zeinali Varzaneh, Amir Hossein Shahbazi Kootenaei, Jafar Towfighi, Ali Mohamadalizadeh


► Mixed Fe-Ce oxide supported on ZSM-5 was used in catalytic cracking of mixed ethanol/naphtha for light olefins production. ► A new model generated to estimate the yield of ethylene and propylene considering the interactions of the parameters. ► Optimizing of Fe, Ce loading and ethanol concentration in naphtha was performed. ► The effect of ethanol concentration in naphtha in deactivation of a selected catalyst was investigated.

A Simple Fabrication Route of Activated Carbons from Chicken Droppings   Original Research Article

Available online 28 February 2013
Kazuyoshi Sato, Sho Suemune, Kohei Nitta, Chiaki Nakayama, Shiori Inokuma, Saori Tonooka, Yumi Mamada, Erina Nakamura, Keiichi Kaneko, Takayuki Takarada


► We have successfully fabricate activated carbons (ACs) from chicken droppings. ► The ACs were obtained without any artificial activation process. ► The spontaneous activation is ascribed to the catalytic gasification by CO2from thermal decomposition of CaCO3. ► The ACs are suitable for electric double-layer capacitor application.

Thermal behavior of native, washed and steam exploded lignocellulosic biomass samples   Original Research Article

Available online 27 February 2013
Zoltán Sebestyén, Emma Jakab, Zoltán May, Bálint Sipos, Kati Réczey


► Functional group composition of lignin molecules was modified by steam explosion. ► Statistical correlations were found between the functional groups of lignin. ► Reduced thermal stability of pretreated wood shows the modification of cellulose.

Biochar Production by Sewage Sludge Pyrolysis   Original Research Article

Available online 24 February 2013
Evita Agrafioti, George Bouras, Dimitris Kalderis, Evan Diamadopoulos


► Pyrolysis of sewage sludge for biochar production has received limited attention ► Impregnation of sludge with potassium and phosphoric acid to catalyse pyrolysis ► Leaching of heavy metals from biochar samples following TCLP studies
