Our project addresses one of the today's biggest challenges: the sustainable management of food waste. An effective use of food waste could be chemical conversion into biofuel through the hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) process. The objective of our project is to study the effectiveness of red mud, and pure metal oxides derived from its composition as potential catalysts for HTL. These catalysts’ impact on the production of bio-oil will be compared to that of Ceria Zirconia in the hopes of finding a cheaper alternative.
