    Research Overview

  • Dr. Stuart’s research interests include biofuels production from renewable feedstocks – specifically algal biomass, CO2 capture using a novel photobioreactor, and biomass gasification. Other current and recent research projects have focused on arsenic removal using recycled waste materials as novel sorbents and the characterization, abatement, and treatment of acid mine drainage sources on abandoned mine lands.
