The Savage Research Lab is committed to high quality research aimed at advancing the use of high temperature water in renewable energy and green chemistry applications.  Below is a listing of the current projects as well as several legacy projects from previous students.

Current Projects:

1) Hydrothermal Carbonization and Supercritical In situ Transesterification of Algae for Biodiesel Production

2) Hydrothermal Liquefaction of Algae

3) Catalytic Upgrading of Biocrude in High Temperature Water

4) Kinetics of Biomass Reactivity in High Temperature Water

5) Supercritical Water Gasification

6) Hydrocarbons from fatty acids via hydrothermal catalytic cracking

Legacy Projects:

1) Water-Tolerant Lewis-Acid Catalysts
2) Supercritical Ethanol Transesterification
3) Hydrogen Production through Supercritical Gasification
