  1. 1. Biogas Production from Citrus Wastes and Chicken Feather : Pretreatment and Co-digestion

    Author : Gergely Forgács; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; anaerobic digestion; pretreatments; co-digestion; economic analyses; citrus wastes; feather; Energi; material; Resursåtervinning; Resource Recovery;

    Abstract : Anaerobic digestion is a sustainable and economically feasible waste management technology, which lowers the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs), decreases the soil and water pollution, and reduces the dependence on fossil fuels. The present thesis investigates the anaerobic digestion of waste from food-processing industries, including citrus wastes (CWs) from juice processing and chicken feather from poultry slaughterhouses.

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gastro-enterology; Pancreatic lipase related proteins.; Pancreatic lipase; Monogalactosyldiglyceride; Lipolytic enzymes; Galactolipids; Essential fatty acids; Digestion; Digalactosyldiglyceride; Colipase; Chylomicron; Bile salt stimulated lipase; Carboxyl ester lipase; Gastroenterologi; Proteins; enzymology; Proteiner; enzymologi; Lipids; steroids; membranes; Lipider; steroider; mebran;

    Abstract : Galactolipids: digalactosyldiglyceride (DGalDG), monogalactosyldiglyceride (MGalDG) and sulfoquinovosyldiglyceride (SQDG) are the major lipid components in thylakoid membranes of chloroplasts i.e. the site of photosynthesis in plants. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biogas Production from Lignocelluloses : Pretreatment, Substrate Characterization, Co-digestion and Economic Evaluation

    Author : Anna Teghammar; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biogas; lignocellulose; pretreatment; anaerobic digestion; co-digestion; substrate characterization; economic evaluation; Biotechnology;

    Abstract : Biogas production from organic materials can be used as a renewable vehicle fuel, provide heat and generate electricity and can thereby reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. This thesis focuses on the biogas production based on lignocelluloses. There is an abundant availability of lignocelluloses, constituting 50% of the total biomass worldwide. READ MORE

  4. 4. Anaerobic Digestion – Microbial Ecology, Improved Operational Design and Process Monitoring

    Author : Marika Murto; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; monitoring; UASB; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; methanogens; fluorescence in situ hybridisation; FISH; co-digestion; biogas; biofilm; aqueous two phase system; anaerobic digestion; 16S rDNA; alkalinity;

    Abstract : The implementation of anaerobic digestion is important in the concept of sustainable development, especially regarding the environmental benefits. Biogas is produced when organic matter is degraded by microorganisms under oxygen-free (anaerobic) conditions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Anaerobic digestion of horse manure : renewable energy and plant nutrients in a systems perspective

    Author : Åsa Hadin; Ola Eriksson; Karl Hillman; Nils Ryrholm; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Horse manure; horse keeping; anaerobic digestion; nutrient recycling; systems perspective; bedding; methane potential; feedstock; biogas; biofertilizer; Hästgödsel; hästhållning; rötning; näringsåterföring; systemperspektiv; strömaterial; metanpotential; biogassubstrat; biogas; biogödsel;

    Abstract : In horse keeping horse manure is produced, which can be utilized as a fertilizer or considered a waste. Horse manure constitutes a resource in terms of both plant nutrients and energy. In addition energy policies and objectives aim at replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources. READ MORE
