  1. 6. Extended Producer Responsibility in Cleaner Production: Policy Principle to Promote Environmental Improvements of Product Systems

    University dissertation from IIIEE, Lund University

    Author : Thomas Lindhqvist; [2000]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Environmental technology; kontroll av utsläpp; pollution control; Miljöteknik; EPR Extended Producer Responsibility Product Environment Policy Recycling; Industriell ekonomi; Commercial and industrial economics;

    Abstract : The focus of the environmental policy-making has shifted noticeably during the last decade. From having played a fairly insignificant role in the 1980s and earlier, product-related environmental problems have attracted an ever-increasing interest from policy-makers, especially in industrialised countries in North-Western Europe.

  2. 7. Microbial Production of Bio-Based Chemicals: A Biorefinery Perspective

    University dissertation from IIIEE, Lund University

    Author : Tarek Dishisha; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biorefinery; platform chemical; organic acid; propionic acid; 3-hydroxypropionic acid; 3-hydroxypropionaldehyde; methacrylic acid; 1; 3-propanediol; Propionibacterium acidipropionici; Lactobacillus reuteri; Gluconobacter oxydans; high cell density fermentation; biotransformation; product inhibition; cell recycle; immobilized cells; chemical catalysis; pdu operon;

    Abstract : A shift from fossil- to renewable biomass feedstock for the emerging bio-based economy requires the development and adoption of new sustainable technologies that are more suited for transformation of biomass components to chemicals, materials and energy. This thesis presents investigations on the development of processes based on industrial biotechnology as a key element for the production of chemicals from agro-/industrial by-products. READ MORE

  3. 8. Titanium oxide nanoparticle production using high power pulsed plasmas

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Rickard Gunnarsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]

    Abstract : This thesis covers fundamental aspects of process control when growing titanium oxide nanoparticles in a reactive sputtering process. It covers the influence of oxygen containing gas on the oxidation state of the cathode from which the growth material is ejected, as well as its influence on the particles oxidation state and their nucleation.

  4. 9. Fuel Reforming for Hydrogen Production in Heavy-Duty Vehicle Applications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Moa. Z. Granlund; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aging · autothermal fuel reforming · CeO2-ZrO2 · characterization · diesel · H2-assisted HC-SCR · micro reactor · monolith; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The depletion of fossil fuels together with growing environmental concerns have created incitement for developing a more energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly vehicle fleet. The development towards cleaner heavy-duty vehicles started already in the 80’s with the introduction of emission legislations. READ MORE

  5. 10. Improving Stress Tolerance in Industrial Saccharomyces cerevisiae Strains for Ethanol Production from Lignocellulosic Biomass

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Valeria Wallace; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; lignocellulose; ethanol; inhibitors; temperature; stress tolerance;

    Abstract : The present work was aimed at developing industrial S. cerevisiae strains with improved tolerance to two types of stressors encountered during the fermentation of lignocellulosic biomass that affect ethanol yield and productivity, namely hydrolysate-derived inhibitors and high temperature, and at understanding the response of yeast and mechanisms of adaptation to such stressors.
