Supercritical Water Gasification Offers Promising Waste-to-Energy Technology

In a recently accepted article in the ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering journal, NRG student Brian Pinkard explores the reaction behavior of complex molecules such as methanol, ethanol and isopropyl alcohol in supercritical water.  Working with Professor Kramlich and Professor Novosselov of UW’s Mechanical Engineering department, Pinkard proposes global reaction pathways in addition to discussing the mechanisms for free radical reaction initiation, propagation and termination.
