  1. 1. Production and transformation of organic compounds from renewable feedstock : Catalytic approaches

    Author : Elena Subbotina; Joseph Samec; Pieter Bruijnincx; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lignin; biomass; lignin-first; catalytic fractionation; flow reactors; dibenzodioxocin; silanes; zeolites; visible light photocatalysis; dearomatization; spirolactones; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis is focused on the development of strategies for lignocellulosic biomass valorization. The thesis consists of two parts.The first part of the presented work is related to the catalytic fractionation of biomass (lignin-first approach) and the production of monomeric compounds from lignocellulose.

  2. 2. Catalytic conversion of LignoBoost Kraft lignin into liquid products in near-critical water

    Author : Huyen Nguyen Lyckeskog; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : LignoBoost; Catalytic conversion; Hydrothermal conversion; Bio-oil; Near-critical water; Lignin;

    Abstract : Lignin, one of the three main components of lignocellulosic biomass, is the second most abundant organic polymer found on Earth. Due to its aromatic nature, lignin is recognized as being a potential feedstock for producing transportation fuel and high value-added chemicals. READ MORE

  3. 3. Catalytic conversion of syngas to higher alcohols over MoS2-based catalysts

    Author : Robert Andersson; Magali Boutonnet; Sven Järås; Anders Holmen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; conversion; higher alcohols; mixed alcohols; MoS2; syngas; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The present thesis concerns catalytic conversion of syngas (H2+ CO) into a blend of methanol and higher alcohols, an attractive way of producing fuels and chemicals. This route has the potential to reduce the oil dependence in the transport sector and, with the use of biomass for the syngas generation, produce CO2-neutral fuels. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biomass conversion through syngas-based biorefineries : thermochemical process integration opportunities

    Author : Katarina Åberg; Anders Nordin; Linda Pommer; Erik Dahlquist; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biomass; biorefinery; thermochemical conversion; torrefaction; slow pyrolysis; gasification; process integration; carbon negativity;

    Abstract : The replacement of fossil resources through renewable alternatives is one way to mitigate global climate change. Biomass is the only renewable source of carbon available for replacing oil as a refining feedstock. Therefore, it needs to be utilized not just as a fuel but for both biochemical and thermochemical conversion through biorefining. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bimetallic palladium catalysts for catalytic combustion of methane

    Author : Katarina Persson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Chemical engineering; catalytic combustion; gas turbine; methane; palladium; bimetal; morphology; TPO; TEM; EDS; methane activity; stability; pressure; Kemiteknik; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Catalytic combustion is a promising combustion technique in gas turbines, which results in ultra low levels of NOx, CO and unburned hydrocarbons. Due to the low combustion temperature achieved in catalytic combustion almost no thermal NOx is formed. The focus in this thesis will be on the first stage in a catalytic combustion chamber, i.e. READ MORE
