  1. 1. Planning production and supply chain in energy intensive process industries

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Martin Waldemarsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Process industry; Energy-intensive production processes; Energy system; Energy management; Production planning; Supply chain planning; Case studies; Mixed Integer Linear Programming; Modelling; Specialty chemicals; Pulp; Steel;

    Abstract : To make a difference among the energy intensive process industries, this dissertation addresses production planning and supply chain planning problems related to industrial energy management issues. The energy issue is turning more and more important from different angles, involving price as well as environmental problems due to climate change leading to political pressure on all energy users.

  2. 2. LIGNIN HYDROTHERMAL LIQUEFACTION IN SUBCRITICAL WATER TO PRODUCE BIOFUEL AND CHEMICALS

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Tallal Belkheiri; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biomass valorisation; base depolymerisation; biofuel; lignin; green chemicals.;

    Abstract : Lignin is one of the most abundant amorphous macromolecules found in nature. Along with cellulose and hemicellulose, it forms a main component of biomass, and is mainly responsible for providing strength, rigidity and resistance to degradation. From a chemistry perspective, lignin is an important source of aromatics. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessing the Integration of Biomass Gasification-Based Production of Chemicals — Case Study of an Oxo Synthesis Plant

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Maria Arvidsson; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; chemicals production; biorefinery; gasification; syngas; oxo synthesis; process integration;

    Abstract : The chemical industry sector is energy-intensive and highly dependent on fossil feedstock. The primary long-term option to reduce fossil feedstock dependence and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is to switch to renewable feedstock. READ MORE

  4. 4. LIGNIN DEPOLYMERISATION IN NEAR- CRITICAL WATER TO PRODUCE BIOFUEL AND CHEMICALS: EFFECT OF CO-SOLVENT AND pH

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Tallal Belkheiri; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; green chemicals; biofuel; lignin; catalytic degradation; Biomass valorisation; hydrogen donor; base depolymerisation;

    Abstract : Lignin is a complex three-dimensional amorphous polymer, which, along with cellulose and hemicellulose, forms a main component of biomass. Its main role is in giving strength, rigidity and resistance to degradation. From a chemistry perspective, lignin is an important source of aromatics. READ MORE

  5. 5. Energy and Production Planning for Process Industry Supply Chains

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Martin Waldemarsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Process industry; energy-intensive production systems; production planning; energy planning; Supply chain planning and optimization; energy management;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses industrial energy issues from a production economic perspective. During the past decade, the energy issue has become more important, partly due to rising energy prices in general, but also from a political pressure on environmental awareness concerning the problems with climate change.
