TL;DR: In this paper, a review of the phase change materials (PCM) and their application in energy storage is presented, where the main advantages of encapsulation are providing large heat transfer area, reduction of the PCMs reactivity towards the outside environment and controlling the changes in volume of the storage materials as phase change occurs.
TL;DR: The most important variables affecting methyl ester yield during the transesterification reaction are the molar ratio of alcohol to vegetable oil and the reaction temperature as discussed by the authors, which is the commonly used alcohol in this process, due to its low cost.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors provide a description of the emerging biorefinery concept, in comparison with the current oil refinery, as well as discussion of the most important biomass feedstocks, conversion technologies and final products.
TL;DR: The conversion technologies for utilizing biomass can be separated into four basic categories: direct combustion processes, thermochemical processes, biochemical processes and agrochemical processes as discussed by the authors, which can be subdivided into gasification, pyrolysis, supercritical fluid extraction and direct liquefaction.
TL;DR: In this paper, the physicochemical properties and characteristics of the components and compositions of biomass pyrolysis oil have been discussed with some suggestions on upgrading and applications of bio-oil in the decades.
