  1. 1. Assessing the sustainability of bioethanol production in Nepal

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Dilip Khatiwada; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bioethanol; sustainability; life cycle assessment; net energy values; greenhouse gas GHG balances; sustainable development; least developed countries LDCs ; Nepal; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Mechanical and thermal engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Mekanisk och termisk energiteknik; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Climatology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Klimatologi;

    Abstract : Access to modern energy services derived from renewable sources is a prerequisite, not only for economic growth, rural development and sustainable development, but also for energy security and climate change mitigation. The least developed countries (LDCs) primarily use traditional biomass and have little access to commercial energy sources. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bioethanol Production: Pretreatment and Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Softwood

    University dissertation from Professor Guido Zacchi, Department of Chemical Engineering 1, Lund University
