  1. 1. CO2 capture from oxy-fuel combustion power plants

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Yukun Hu; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CO2 capture; oxy-fuel combustion; flue gas recycle; evaporative gas turbine; techno- economic evaluation;

    Abstract : To mitigate the global greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions, carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) has the potential to play a significant role for reaching mitigation target. Oxy-fuel combustion is a promising technology for CO2 capture in power plants. READ MORE

  2. 2. Post-Combustion CO2 Capture in Kraft Pulp Mills - Technical, Economic and System Aspects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Erik Hektor; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Chemical absorption; Excess heat; Post-combustion; Chilled ammonia; Process integration; Mono-ethanolamine; Pulp and paper; CO2 capture;

    Abstract : As a result of increasing concerns about climate change, there is considerable research and activities around CO2 capture and storage. In this thesis it is studied what role the pulp and paper industry can play in mitigating climate change through CO2 capture and storage. READ MORE

  3. 3. CO2 Capture using Chemical-Looping Combustion – Operational Experience with Gaseous and Solid Fuels

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Carl Johan Linderholm; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; nickel oxide; coal; natural gas; chemical-looping combustion CLC ; oxygen carrier; CO2 capture; manganese ore; interconnected fluidized beds; ilmenite;

    Abstract : CO2 capture and storage has been proposed as an alternative to mitigate global warming. Chemical-looping combustion (CLC) is an unmixed combustion concept where fuel and combustion air are kept separate by means of an oxygen carrier, and the CO2 capture is inherently achieved.

  4. 4. A Thermoeconomic Evaluation of CO2 Capture with Focus on Gas Turbine-Based Power Plants

    University dissertation from Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Björn Fredriksson Möller; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Termisk teknik; climate change; optimisation; genetic algorithms; applied thermodynamics; Thermal engineering; AZEP; GTPOM; gas turbine; CO2 capture; thermoeconomy; termodynamik;

    Abstract : The increasing emissions of carbon dioxide from fossil fuel burning are today thought to be one of the main contributors to global warming. At the same time, developing countries are striving for an increased welfare and burning more fossil fuel, which in turn is augmenting the greenhouse gas effect. READ MORE

  5. 5. Opportunities and uncertainties in the early stages of development of CO2 capture and storage

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Mårten Lind; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Acceptance; cement; CCS; CO2 capture and storage; early opportunities; enhanced oil recovery; expert opinions; hybrid power cycles; optimism; oxyfuel combustion; pressurised fluidised bed combustion; pilot plant; potassium carbonate; risk; Sargas; scenario studies; scientific uncertainty; stakeholder perceptions; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Chemical process and manufacturing engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS), which is a technology that is currently being promoted by industries, scientists and governments, among others, in order to mitigate climate change despite a continued use of fossil fuels. Because of the complex nature of CCS and the risks it entails, it is controversial. READ MORE
