  1. 1. Catalytic Incineration of CO and VOC Emissions over Supported Metal Oxide Catalysts

    Author : Per-Olof Larsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Titania; Ceria; Manganese oxide; Copper oxide; VOC; CO; Ethanol; Ethyl acetate; Metal oxide catalysts; Catalytic combustion; Catalytic incineration; Alumina.; Chemical technology and engineering; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi;

    Abstract : Catalytic incineration is one of the methods to reduce the emissions of CO and VOCs. Low operation temperature and low catalyst cost are essential parameters for catalytic incinerators. Pt/Al2O3 catalysts are frequently used today, but the cheaper metal oxide catalysts can be very competitive if comparable overall activity is obtained. READ MORE

  2. 2. Atmospheric Chemistry of Volatile Organic Compounds: Oxidation Products, Mechanisms and Secondary Organic Aerosol Formation

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Julia Hammes; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOA; VOC; anthropogenic; biogenic; FIGAERO; CIMS; HOMs; ELVOCs; atmospheric oxidation; chemical mechanism; NOx; limonene; a-pinene; TMB; ozone; nitrate; OH; radical chemistry; RO2; G-FROST; GO:PAM;

    Abstract : The results from this work are a piece in understanding the complex puzzle of atmospheric aerosol formation. Secondary organic aerosol (SOA) formed by the oxidation of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the atmosphere is a key component of air pollution with a strong negative impact on human health and influence on climate, but its formation is poorly understood.

  3. 3. Optical remote sensing of industrial gas emission fluxes

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : John Johansson; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; optical remote sensing; DOAS; gas emission; absorption spectroscopy; VOC; flux measurement; solar occultation; FTIR; formaldehyde;

    Abstract : Mobile optical remote sensing techniques offer promising possibilities to quantify and geographically attribute local industrial gaseous emissions to the atmosphere. Studies have repeatedly shown that such emissions are often poorly understood, underestimated, and thereby not properly accounted for in emission inventories and regional atmospheric chemistry models, especially for emissions of VOCs.

  4. 4. Study of Catalyst Deactivation in Three Different Industrial Processes

    University dissertation from Växjö : Växjö University Press

    Author : Ann-Charlotte Larsson; Växjö universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; deactivation; catalyst; SCR; VOC; steam reforming; aerosol particle; potassium; zinc; ash salts; biomass; organosilicon; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Deactivation of catalysts were investigated focusing on three industrial processes: 1) Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) for abatement of NOx from biomass combustion using V2O5-WO3 /TiO2 catalysts; 2) Catalytic oxidation of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from printing industries using a Pt/γ-Al2O3 catalyst; and 3) Ni and Pt/Rh catalysts used in steam reforming reaction of bio-syngas obtained from biomass gasification.The aim has been to simulate industrial conditions in laboratory experiments in order to comprehend influence of compounds affecting catalysts performance.

  5. 5. Development towards an efficient and sustainable biofuel drying

    University dissertation from Växjö University Press

    Author : Peter Bengtsson; Växjö universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; biomass; bioenergy; drying; bed drying; drying zone; modeling; VOC; terpenes; wood fuels; wood chips; sawdust; Norway spruce; Scots pine;

    Abstract : The usage of biofuel as well as wood fuel has increased in Sweden and all of Europe during recent decades, and there are several reasons to believe that this increase will continue. An important reason for this increase is that the environmental and climate problems caused by fossil fuels are becoming even more evident. READ MORE
