  1. 1. The Story of Phosphorus : Sustainability implications of global phosphorus scarcity for food security

    Author : Dana Cordell; Stuart White; Jan-Olof Drangert; Julie Wilk; Johan Rockström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; global phosphorus scarcity; peak phosphorus; global food security; sustainable resource use; food production and consumption system; transdisciplinary; systems thinking; global fosforbrist; peak fosfor; global matsäkerhet; hållbar resursanvändning; system för produktion och konsumtion av mat; transdisciplinaritet; systemtänkande; Water in nature and society; Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Abstract : The story of phosphorus began with the search for the philosopher’s stone, and centuries later the critical role of phosphorus in soil fertility and crop growth was highlighted. Eventually, phosphorus was implicated in the global environmental challenge of eutrophication. READ MORE

  2. 2. Phosphorus Emissions from Fish Farms : Observed and Predicted Effects

    Author : Torbjörn Johansson; Kurt Pettersson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Earth sciences; Fish farm; phosphorus; eutrophication; model; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Sedimentology; sedimentologi;

    Abstract : During the last decades, fish farming has been a rapidly increasing industry in many European and North American countries. Sweden has a large potential for aquaculture, but there is also a strong concern about the effects on the environment that an increased aquaculture production may cause. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ash chemistry and fuel design focusing on combustion of phosphorus-rich biomass

    Author : Nils Skoglund; Dan Boström; Rainer Backman; Franz Winter; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; phosphorus; biomass; combustion; ash chemistry; fuel design; ash transformation; phosphorus-rich; ash-forming elements; fuel fingerprint; ash transformation reactions; Lewis base; Lewis acid; oorganisk kemi; Inorganic Chemistry;

    Abstract : Biomass is increasingly used as a feedstock in global energy production. This may present operational challenges in energy conversion processes which are related to the inorganic content of these biomasses. As a larger variety of biomass is used the need for a basic understanding of ash transformation reactions becomes increasingly important. READ MORE

  4. 4. Phosphorus retention in sediments : implications for aerobic phosphorus release in shallow lakes

    Author : Stefan Löfgren; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : .... READ MORE

  5. 5. Ash transformation in thermochemical conversion of different biomass resources with special focus on phosphorus

    Author : Ali Hedayati; Marcus Öhman; Christoffer Boman; Kentaro Umeki; Anita Pettersson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; agricultural biomass; forest residues; sewage sludge; ash transformation; release; potassium; phosphorus; combustion; gasification; bio charcoal; phosphorus recovery; Energy Engineering; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : A great potential exists for increasing the use of bioenergy in thermochemical processes by utilizing agricultural biomass, forest residues, and sewage sludge that have high availability. Many of these biomass assortments have high ash contents with relatively high concentrations of ash-forming elements such as potassium (K), calcium (Ca), silicon (Si), and phosphorus (P). READ MORE
