Journal ArticleDOI
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.

Journal ArticleDOI
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.

Journal ArticleDOI
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.
