Keynote speech on Carbon Capture (CCST 2022)

On July 22, 2022, as invited by Dr Chun-fei Wu (Reader of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the Queen’s University Belfast, UK Editor-in-Chief of Carbon Capture Science & Technology), Prof. Zhen Fang attended the International Conference on Carbon Capture Science and Technology 2022 (CCST2022) held in Northern Ireland, UK. Prof. Fang gave a lecture on “Pretreatment and hydrolysis of lignocellulosic Biomass for Biorefineries”. He introduced

  1. Hydrolysis

      (i) Pretreatment for enzymatic hydrolysis (e.g., 50 °C)

      (ii) Catalytic hydrolysis (e.g., 180 °C)

      (iii) Hydrothermal Hydrolysis

       near CP (374 °C & 22.1 MPa) without catalyst

  1. Microbial and Jatropha biodiesel

     Green production with functional catalysts

  1. Liquid biofuels

    (e.g., methyl levulinate, γ-valerolactone, 2,5-dimethylfuran, methylfuran) from carbohydrates (e.g., sugars, cellulose) with nanocatalysts

光大交流Visiting Everbright Environment (Group) Co., Ltd (Nanjing) for Collabration

On July 7, 2022, as invited by Dr. Jingwei Wu from China Everbright Environment (Group) Co., Ltd. (Nanjing), Prof. Zhen Fang led biomass group (Drs. Lujiang Xu, Wei Chen, Shuai Gao, Chengyu Dong and Huan Zhang) visited China Everbright Environment (Group) Co., Ltd. for technology exchanges in the treatment of wastes for further collabration in R&D.

In the Exhibition Hall, Dr. Xiaoyu Zheng (Director of the Comprehensive Institute of Everbright Environment Group Technology Research Institute) introduced the development history of Everbright Environment in three major fields of environment, resources and energy, including R&D and commercial plants for waste power generation and co-processing, biomass power generation, hazardous waste and solid waste disposal, environmental restoration, sewage treatment, reclaimed water reuse, water supply, comprehensive water environment management, resource recycling, and equipment manufacturing.

Later, Prof. Zhen Fang gave a lecture on “Pretreatment and hydrolysis of lignocellulosic Biomass for Biorefineries”. He briefly introduced the pretreatment and hydrolysis of lignocelluloses (enzymatic, catalytic and fast hydrolyses), biodiesel production, and synthesis of chemicals and biofuels. Dr. Zheru Shao, Chief Scientist of Everbright International, Director Dr. Xiaoyu Zheng, and the leaders of each group participated in the meeting, and had a lively discussion on the content of Prof. Fang’s lecture. At the same time, Everbright Environment raised current problems and needs for collaborations. It has laid a solid foundation for further in-depth discussion on the technique issues between the two parties.
