• Effect of power ultrasound and Fenton reagents on the biomethane potential from steam-exploded birchwood 

      Lamb, Jacob Joseph; Islam, Md Hujjatul; Hjelme, Dag Roar; Pollet, Bruno; Lien, Kristian Myklebust (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The global demand for non-fossil energy sources is increasing rapidly. As a result, biogas presents a suitable alternative; however, first generation biofuels (e.g., sugar cane) potentially impact food crops globally. ...
    • Flame Retardant Effect of Nano Fillers on Polydimethylsiloxane Composites 

      Jagdale, Pravin; Salimpour, Samera; Islam, Md Hujjatul; Cuttica, Fabio; Robles Hernandez, Francisco C.; Tagliaferro, Alberto; Frache, Alberto (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Polydimethylsiloxane has exceptional fire retardancy characteristics, which make it a popular polymer in flame retardancy applications. Flame retardancy of polydimethylsiloxane with different nano fillers was studied. ...
    • How to Avoid Total Dissolved Gas Supersaturation in Water from Hydropower Plants by Employing Ultrasound 

      Rognerud, Maren Elise; Solemslie, Bjørn Winther; Islam, Md Hujjatul; Pollet, Bruno (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      In Norway, more than 10 hydropower plants are known to have caused biologically relevant levels of total dissolved gas supersaturation in the rivers downstream power plants. This phenomenon is causing fish kills due to gas ...
    • Sonochemical and sonoelectrochemical conversion of CO2 into hydrocarbons 

      Islam, Md Hujjatul (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2021:158, Doctoral thesis, 2021)
      Carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of the major greenhouse gas (GHG) contributors to global climate change. Combustion of fossil fuels accounts for approximately 80-90 % of the global CO2 emission, which over the last decade, has ...
    • Sonochemical and Sonoelectrochemical Production of Hydrogen - A Review 

      Islam, Md Hujjatul; Burheim, Odne Stokke; Pollet, Bruno (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Reserves of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas on earth are finite. The continuous use and burning of these fossil fuel resources in the industrial, domestic and transport sectors has resulted in the extremely ...
    • The Use of Ultrasound for the Electrochemical Synthesis of Magnesium Ammonium Phosphate Hexahydrate (Struvite) 

      Foroughi, Faranak; Kékedy-Nagy, László; Islam, Md Hujjatul; Lamb, Jacob Joseph; Greenlee, Lauren F.; Pollet, Bruno (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      With the observed global intensification of the agricultural sector, slurry management has now become a severe problem causing a large amount of pollution due to industrial fertilizers. It is imperative that techniques are ...
    • The use of non-cavitating coupling fluids for intensifying sonoelectrochemical processes 

      Islam, Md Hujjatul; Naidji, Bouzid; Hallez, Loic; Et Taouil, Abdeslam; Hihn, Jean-Yves; Burheim, Odne Stokke; Pollet, Bruno (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      For the first time, we have investigated the beneficial effects of non-cavitating coupling fluids and their moderate overpressures in enhancing mass-transfer and acoustic energy transfer in a double cell micro-sonoreactor. ...
