Waste-To-Treasure: Porous Carbon Sorbents From Sustainable Rice Husk Synthesized By A Direct Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Activation

CO2-looping in Biomass Thermochemical Process Thermochemical processes such as pyrolysis and gasification have been recognized as the most promising fuel processing technique that can utilize biomass for energy recovery. Pyrolysis of biomass can produce biochar, bio-oil, and syngas. Moreover, the by-product of biochar can be fabricated into various carbon materials (e.g., adsorbents, catalysts) for sustainable applications. It was found that CO2, acting as an agent, can participate in each stage (e.g., pyrolysis, gasification) through the integrated thermochemical process, mainly including...
