  1. 1. Hydrodeoxygenation (HDO) catalysts Characterization, reaction and deactivation studies

    Author : Houman Ojagh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Poisoning; Carbon deposition; Ring opening; Hydrodeoxygenation HDO ; Deactivation; Hydroconversion; Brønsted acid sites; Renewable diesel; Sulfided phase;

    Abstract : Production of biomass derived fuels such as renewable diesel, are primarily intended to reduce the reliance of the conventional engines on petroleum fuels as well as the emission of CO2 from fossil hydrocarbons. Hydrodeoxygenation (HDO) is a powerful technique that has been regularly used in the fuel upgrading processes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Catalytic Upgrading of Waste Oils to Advanced Biofuels – Deactivation and Kinetic Modelling Study

    Author : Prakhar Arora; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Stearic acid; TEM; Advanced biofuels; NiMo; Catalytic HDO; MoS2; Kinetic modelling; Oleic acid; Hydrodeoxygenation;

    Abstract : The demand for liquid hydrocarbons as transportation fuels is enormous and ever growing. Advanced biofuels is one of the promising solutions to keep pace with the global transition to cleaner energy by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector. READ MORE

  3. 3. Kraft lignin valorization by hydrotreatment over Mo-based sulfided catalysts

    Author : Muhammad Abdus Salam; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Metal sulfide; Hydrodeoxygenation; Y-zeolite; Kraft Lignin; Char; Acidity; Depolymerization; Bio-oil;

    Abstract : The production of green fuels and chemicals from bio-based feedstock can suppress the dependency on fossil resources and help mitigate global climate challenges. Kraft lignin is a thermochemically modified natural lignin obtained from the pulping process as a byproduct. READ MORE

  4. 4. Deactivation of Catalysts and Reaction Kinetics for Upgrading of Renewable Oils

    Author : Prakhar Arora; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HVO; Kinetic modeling; Catalyst deactivation; NiMo; Advanced biofuels; Catalyst; Hydrodeoxygenation;

    Abstract : The transport sector is one of the main contributors of greenhouse gas emissions in the world. Advanced biofuels from renewable oils can play a decisive role in reducing carbon emissions from the transport sector. Advanced biofuels from waste streams like tall oil, used cooking oil etc. READ MORE

  5. 5. Catalytic valorization of lignocellulose : Direct and sidestream upgrading approaches

    Author : Davide Di Francesco; Joseph Samec; Orlando Rojas; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lignin; biomass; catalytic fractionation; dearomatization; heterogeneous catalysis; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : This work aims to explore different approaches for the valorization of lignocellulosic biomass. In this regard, two different strategies are presented: the catalytic upgrading of lignocellulose derivatives from industrial streams, such as pyrolytic oil and kraft lignin, and the direct catalytic fractionation of woody biomass.
