Visit to the UNC Marchetti Lab

Grad student Jasmin Melara was visited the Marchetti lab at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to observe how the lab cultures their diatoms in low iron conditions! This was thanks to Carly Moreno that was able to show her around lab and provide valuable insightful details to conduct this type of research, which will help Jasmin decide her next research steps.

New paper looks at HTL impacts

Sarah’s new paper entitled “Evaluating the Water Quality Impacts of Hydrothermal Liquefaction Assessment of Carbon, Nitrogen, and Energy Recovery” concludes that aqueous co-product management in the HTL processes may be energy intensive and nutrient recovery could help offset some of the costs in this regard. The work may be found here and is published in the new journal Bioresource Technology Reports, a sister journal to Bioresource Technology.
