  1. 1. Possibilities of CO2 emission reduction : process integration analysis and carbon trading schemes

    Author : Chuan Wang; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : Climate change is one of the greatest challenges faced by today's society. With more evidence from scientists, the need to manage greenhouse gas emissions has been increasing in response to international climate change negotiations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Reduction of the N2O Emission from Fluidized Bed Combustion by Afterburning

    Author : Lennart Gustavsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : chemical modelling; fuel injection; nitrous oxide; fluidized bed combustion; fluidized beds; afterburning; homogeneous heterogeneous reactions; N2O reduction; fluidized bed boiler; N2O emissions;

    Abstract : A method for reducing N2O emissions from fluidized bed combustion is presented and investigated. In contrast to flame combustion, fluidized bed combustion generates significant amounts of nitrous oxide (N2O) which are emitted to the atmosphere. READ MORE

  3. 3. Catalytic Emission Abatement and Gas Separation

    Author : Martin Petersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NOx reduction; Ozone promotion; Flow reactor studies; Propane oxidation; Molecular simulations; Sulfur dioxide promotion; Zeolite adsorption; Environmental heterogeneous catalysis; Mean-field kinetic modeling; CO oxidation;

    Abstract : Air pollution is still today a major health problem. Emissions from mobile and stationary sources are regulated, but economical considerations limit the implementation of the most efficient abatement systems. To improve urban air quality, there is therefore a need to develop simple, durable and cost efficient emission control methods. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nonlinear System Identification and Control Applied to Selective Catalytic Reduction Systems

    Author : Soma Tayamon; Bengt Carlsson; Torbjörn Wigren; Bo Egardt; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Nonlinear identification; nonlinear control; selective catalytic reduction; NOx reduction; recursive prediction error method; feedback linearisation; multiple-model; Elektroteknik med inriktning mot reglerteknik; Electrical Engineering with specialization in Automatic Control;

    Abstract : The stringent regulations of emission levels from heavy duty vehicles create a demand for new methods for reducing harmful emissions from diesel engines. This thesis deals with the modelling of the nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from heavy duty vehicles using a selective catalyst as an aftertreatment system, utilising ammonia (NH3) for its reduction.

  5. 5. Catalytic Reduction of NOx on Heavy-Duty Trucks

    Author : Christian Künkel; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi; Chemical technology and engineering; real time; strategy; model; catalysis; exhaust gas; diesel; automotive; deNOx; NOx reduction; NOx storage; HC-SCR; Carbochemistry; petrochemistry; fuels and explosives technology; Petrokemi; bränslen; sprängämnen;

    Abstract : The objective of the work described in this thesis is to identify the principles and parts of an aftertreatment system for the catalytic NOx reduction for heavy-duty diesel vehicles, and to demonstrate such a system in full-scale. The reducing agent is diesel fuel. READ MORE
