Professor in Bioengineering and Biotechnology - Research Line - biological treatment of industrial waste. Graduated in Agronomy from the Federal University of Lavras (1997), Master in Plant Physiology, Federal University of Viçosa (2001), PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cádiz- Spain (2005) and Post-doctorate in Food Engineering at UNICAMP (2011). Experience in Bioengineering area, Sanitation and Environment, working mainly in the following research areas: Energy Use Waste with High Load Organic; Applied Microbiology Sanitary Engineering; Supercritical Technology: Hydrolysis and Gasification.
Integrated management of energy and water in industry sector, as substitute of integrated planning applied on ambit of a restrict economic sector. To achieve this goal, it’s describe the ways which theses resources are used in industry and how they can be managed through appropriate management measures and second assist in preparation of programs standards of efficiency on the use of these resources. This approach presents two case studies: of the water and sanitation distribution industry – dependent of electricity for bombing – and – of the sugar industry – intensive in water. The results will be associated and used in case studies on sanitation and distribution of water and sugar industries, indicating opportunities of integrated management and efficiency use natural resources. The increase of industries activities and complexity of relations between the energy resources and water in productive methods turn the operational procedures from industry a relevant question in relation both to strategy linked to the availability and energy reserves and of water, specifically, about the environmental issues of different characteristics such as waste disposal. A model structure can be obtained including energy efficiency patterns and a final use of water, action plans, training (of specialists teams), documentation, information, education, ordinance, economic, financial and fiscal incentives, assessment and certification tools.
Sadrameli is a professor of Chemical Engineering at TMU, Tehran, Iran. He received his BSc. in Chemical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran in 1980, M.Sc and Ph.D from Leeds University, UK in 1984 and 1989 respectively. His research interests focus on industrial heat recovery, thermal energy storage systems using PCMs, and thermo-chemical conversion of biomass for the production of biofuels. His current projects involve encapsulation of PCM materials for thermal energy storage applications and production of transportation biofuels and valuable chemicals from thermal and catalytic cracking of triglycerides and pyrolysis of oil seeds.
Growth of the world energy consumption, energy sources depletion and global warming that related to the fossil fuel consumption, increase the attentions to the production of renewable fuels. Conversion of vegetable oil and fats (natural triglycerides) to biofuel is one of the options to produce renewable fuels for the transportation sector but the yield and quality of the products are among the important factors in the process. This lecture presents some of the results obtained from the study of deoxygenation, and ketonization processes using thermal/catalytic cracking of sunflower oil and its methyl esters for the production of transportation biofuels. Sunflower oil was converted to methyl ester in the presence of KOH through transesterification reaction and was used as a feed for the cracking process. Thermal cracking of sunflower oil and its methyl esters were compared to determine the benefits of transesterification process as a pretreatment step for the triglycerides. To reduce the oxygen content of the liquid products and property improvement of the fuel after catalytic cracking using HZSM-5, deoxygenation over -Al2O3, and ketonization over MnO2/-Al2O3 catalysts were examined. Results show that decarboxylation and ketonization of the liquid products with catalysts reduces the acidity and improve other properties of the fuel to the standard level.
