  1. 1. Perspectives on future bioenergy use and trade in a European policy context

    Author : Julia Hansson; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Sweden; bioenergy trade; EU; policy; bioenergy; co-generation; renewable electricity; biomass; co-firing; district heating; biofuels for transportation; gasification;

    Abstract : This thesis, which consists of five separate papers, analyses the possibilities for increasing the use and trade of bioenergy, in a European policy context. In Paper I we investigate whether different policy objectives underlying the promotion of bioenergy (cost-effective climate change mitigation, reduced dependency on imported fuels, and job creation) agree on which bioenergy options should be used.

  2. 2. Strategies for Reduced Energy Use and Cost in Pulp and Paper Mills by Energy Integration of the Paper Drying Process

    University dissertation from Department of Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Kristian Lindell; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Paper; Pappers- och massateknik; pulp and paper technology; Wood; Energiforskning; Chemical technology and engineering; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi; Combined dryer; Energy research; Black liquor gasification; Heat recovery; Secondary energy; Co-generation; Costs; Energy; Drying;

    Abstract : The cost of energy for drying paper is substantial for the pulp and paper industry, and studies of various strategies for energy cost reductions such as increased energy efficiency, increased heat recovery from the exhaust drying air and reduced cost of the process heat are presented in this thesis. The energy use and cost studies were performed using a block-model based simulation tool developed for this specific purpose. READ MORE

  3. 3. CO2 mitigation in advanced power cycles

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemiteknik

    Author : Jens Wolf; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Chemical engineering; chemical looping combusion; co2 capture; hydrogen production; trigeneration; co-generation; Kemiteknik; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis encompasses CO2 mitigation using three different processes: i) natural gas-fired combined cycle with chemical looping combustion (CLC), ii) trigeneration of electrical power, hydrogen and district heating with extended CLC, iii) steam-based gasification of biomass integrated in an advanced power cycle.In CLC, a solid oxygen carrier circulates between two fluidised-bed reactors and transports oxygen from the combustion air to the fuel; thus, the fuel is not mixed with air and an inherent CO2 separation occurs.

  4. 4. Energy Efficient Wood Fuel Drying

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstad University Studies

    Author : Roger Renström; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Abstract : With reference to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, biofuel is pointed out as an important substitute for fossil fuels. The Swedish Government favours the use of biofuel by imposing taxes on fossil fuels. READ MORE

  5. 5. District heat production under different environmental and social cost scenarios

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Nguyen Le Truong; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; district heat production; primary energy use; minimum-cost system; co-production;

    Abstract : District heat production systems (DHSs) are normally designed to meet the heat demand of customers at a minimum cost whilst fulfilling local and national regulations. Various factors influence the choice of district heat production units in a minimum-cost system. READ MORE
