    Abstract : The overall purpose of this thesis is to analyze the role of public policies for technological development (i.e., innovation) in the renewable energy sector. The thesis consists of an introductory part and three self-contained papers. READ MORE

  2. 2. Condensation irrigation : simulations of heat and mass transfer

    Author : Jenny Lindblom; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vattenteknik; Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : There is a growing water demand in the world. Along with the deterioration of existing water supplies, the escalating world population leads to the assumption that two out of three people will lack sufficient freshwater by the year 2025. READ MORE

  3. 3. Production of Ethanol from Spruce at High Solids Concentrations - An Experimental Study on Process Development of Simultaneous Saccharification and Fermentation

    Author : Kerstin Hoyer; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ethanol; spruce; SSF; fermentation; enzymatic hydrolysis; lignocellulose; high solids;

    Abstract : Replacing fossil fuels by biofuels such as ethanol is considered a promising alternative to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and mitigate climate change. Biofuels produced from lignocellulosic biomass, so-called second generation biofuels, result in decreased GHG emissions and limit competition with food and animal feed production. READ MORE

  4. 4. Strategies for controlling solid biomass conversion in dual fluidized bed gasifiers

    Author : Teresa Berdugo Vilches; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; char gasification; operating conditions; steam reforming; feldspar.; bauxite; segregation; olivine; in situ gas upgrading; ilmenite; dual fluidized bed; tar removal;

    Abstract : In the chemical industry, Synthesis Gas (syngas) has been traditionally produced by steam reforming of natural gas and naphtha. Steam gasification of biomass offers an alternative route for the production of syngas from renewable sources. READ MORE

  5. 5. Efficient energy use in different applications

    Author : Lars Johansson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energiteknik; Energy Engineering;

    Abstract : There is a steadily growing awareness for environmental issues caused by the increased energy use, mainly in the industrial world. The use of fossil fuels has reached the point where it can not be looked at as an endless source, the resources are decreasing at a pace where alternative energy sources will be a necessity for this and future generations.
