  1. 1. Exploring strategies to improve volumetric hydrogen productivities of Caldicellulosiruptor species

    Author : Thitiwut Vongkampang; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Caldicellulosiruptor kronotskyensis; volumetric hydrogen productivity; non-diauxic; acrylic fibres; cell immobilization; chitosan; biofilm; c-di-GMP; cellobiose; xylose; consolidated bioprocessing; heat-treated wheat straw;

    Abstract : Ongoing consumption of fossil-based fuels generates a massive amount of greenhouse gases. This may lead to global warming that is currently threatening human society and wild animal habitats. Hydrogen is an energy carrier with the highest energy content per weight compared to other all fuels and no carbon dioxide is released when combusted. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development and characterisation of bast and basalt fibre hybrid polymer composites for automotive applications

    Author : Anjum Saleem; Roberts Joffe; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Flax; Hemp; Kenaf; Basalt fibres; Polypropylene; Acrylic based polyester resins; Flexural; Tensile; Impact strength; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : Natural fibres such as kenaf, hemp, and flax, also known as bast fibres, offer several benefits such as low density, low cost, carbon dioxide neutrality, sustainability and renewability. In Europe, their composites are used intensively by almost all car manufacturers, mostly in interior applications. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the processing and properties of cellulose-containing polymeric materials

    Author : Ruth Arino Marine; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : dispersion; extrusion; injection moulding; ionic liquids; compounding; ethylene-acrylic acid copolymer; gels; cellulose fibres; rheological properties;

    Abstract : Cellulose fibres have properties such as renewability, biodegradability, very good availability and low cost that make them very attractive as a reinforcement for thermoplastic polymers. Other more specific favourable properties are low density, high specific stiffness, low abrasive nature and their potential for modification. READ MORE

    Keywords : rheological properties; compounding; dispersion; ionic liquids; ethylene-acrylic acid copolymer; cellulose fibres; gels;

    Abstract : ABSTRACTCellulose fibres have properties that make them very attractive as a reinforcement for thermoplastic polymers. Renewability, biodegradability, very good availability and low cost are some general advantages. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the Adhesion Between Substrates Covered with Polyelectrolyte Multilayers

    Author : Rikard Lingström; Lars Wågberg; Lennart Piculell; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fibre; polyelectorlyte; multilayer; wettability; contact angle; paper strength; atomic force microscopy; surface force apparatus; Cellulose and paper engineering; Cellulosa- och pappersteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the formation of Polyelectrolyte Multilayers (PEM) on cellulose fibres as a new way of influencing the fibre surface and the adhesion between wood fibres. The aim of the study was to enhance the fundamental understanding of the adsorption mechanisms behind the formation of Polyelectrolyte Multilayers on cellulose fibres; to study how the properties of the layers can be influenced and to show how the properties of the layers influence the adhesion between the fibres and the strength of paper sheets made from the PEM treated fibres.
