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

    Author : Dilip Khatiwada; Semida Silveira; Andrew Martin; Björn Karlsson; KTH; []
    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; Mechanical and thermal engineering; Mekanisk och termisk energiteknik; Climatology; 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. Evaluation of biosensors and flow cytometry as monitoring tools in lignocellulosic bioethanol production

    Author : Raquel Perruca Foncillas; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []

    Abstract : The significant environmental impact of the current fossil fuel-based industry is a major concern for society. Consequently, various initiatives are being undertaken to establish a more sustainable industrial model. READ MORE

  3. 3. Production planning of CHP plants integrated with bioethanol production and local renewables

    Author : Mahsa Daraei; Eva Thorin; Anders Avelin; Erik Dotzauer; Natasa Nord; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CHP; Energy systems; Optimization; Polygeneration; Production planning; Renewable resources; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Production planning of an energy system is dependent on parameters such as energy demand and energy conversion technologies, which are influential in making decisions on operation strategy and optimal performance of the system. In accordance with the European Union energy policy, the share of renewable resources in the energy supply is growing. READ MORE

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

    Author : Charlotte Tengborg; Avdelningen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; recirculation of process streams; detoxification; inhibition; hydrolysis conditions; enzymatic hydrolysis; Ethanol production; steam pretreatment; softwood; Carbochemistry; petrochemistry; fuels and explosives technology; Petrokemi; bränslen; sprängämnen;

    Abstract : The enzymatic hydrolysis process can be used to produce bioethanol from softwood, which are the dominating raw material in the Northern hemisphere. This thesis deals with the development of the process focusing on the pretreatment and the enzymatic hydrolysis stages. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design and development of a novel textile based bioreactor: : Ethanol and biogas production as case studies

    Author : Osagie Alex Osadolor; Christian Larroche; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bioethanol; biogas; bioreactor; bioreactor design; techno-economic analysis; membrane stress analysis; mass transfer; hydrodynamics; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : Bioreactors are designed to provide enabling conditions for the controlled growth of microorganisms, such as good heat and mass transfer, aeration, hydrodynamics, geometry for adequate gas holdup, pH and foaming control, conditions for optimal substrate consumption and product formation, as well as mechanisms for monitoring microbial conditions. Additionally, bioreactors are designed to handle stress that would be exerted on them by the weight of the fermenting media and by the high pressure used for sterilisation. READ MORE
