- ... Liquefaction is a new method of producing crude oil from sewage sludge. The effect of in situ hydrogenation on sewage sludge liquefaction characteristics using different solvents was studied in this research. The highest bio-oil yields were 42.3% in ethanol at 360 °C, 43.1% in acetone at 360 °C, and 26.3% in methanol at 280 °C. Esters were the main components of bio-oils in ethanol and methanol, w ...
