  1. 1. Microalgae : future bioresource of the sea?

    Author : Martin Olofsson; Catherine Legrand; Jukka Seppälä; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Microalgae; algal cultivation; bioresource; bioenergy; CO2 mitigation; multi-species community approach; seasonal variation; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; Environmental technology; Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Unicellular microalgae are a renewable bioresource that can meet the challenge forfood and energy in a growing world population. Using sunlight, CO2, nutrients,and water, algal cells produce biomass in the form of sugars, proteins and oils, allof which carry commercial value as food, feed and bioenergy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microalgal solutions in Nordic conditions : industries transition toward resource recovery?

    Author : Lina Mattsson; Catherine Legrand; Elin Lindehoff; Hanna Farnelid; Kristian Spilling; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microalgae; algal cultivation; polyculture; resource recovery; seasonal variation; industrial partnership; CO2 mitigation; nitrogen removal; community composition; Ecology; Ekologi; Environmental Biotechnology; Miljöbioteknik; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Microalgal solutions can through photosynthesis recover greenhouse gas (CO2) and nutrients from industrial waste, reducing climate footprint and eutrophication. An added value to the process is algal biomass containing lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates with commercial potential for biofuel, feed, and fertilizer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Indigenous microalgae-activated sludge cultivation system for wastewater treatment

    Author : Anbarasan Anbalagan; Emma Nehrenheim; Carl-Fredrik Lindberg; Sebastian Schwede; Raquel Labrero; Mälardalens högskola; []

    Abstract : The municipal wastewater is mainly composed of water containing anthropogenic wastes that are rich in nutrients such as carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous. The cost for biological treatment of wastewater is increasing globally due to the population growth in urban cities. READ MORE

  4. 4. Excess heat utilisation in oil refineries - CCS and algae-based biofuels

    Author : Viktor Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; techno-economic; CO2 emissions; carbon dioxide; renewable diesel; post-combustion; algae biofuels; process integration; GHG emissions; oil refining industry; carbon capture and storage CCS ;

    Abstract : The main objective of this thesis is to investigate two different concepts for CO2 mitigation, from a system perspective, in relation to the oil refining industry: CO2 capture and storage; and algae-based biofuels. For all these processes, process integration with an oil refinery is assumed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Treatment of domestic wastewater using microbiological processes and hydroponics in Sweden

    Author : Anna Norström; Gunnel Dalhammar; Jörgen Hanaeus; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microbiology; biological; hydroponics; microbial composition; nitrogen; organic matter; phosphorus; small scale; theoretical energy requirements; wastewater treatment.; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Conventional end-of-pipe solutions for wastewater treatment have been criticized from a sustainable view-point, in particular regarding recycling of nutrients. The integration of hydroponic cultivation into a wastewater treatment system has been proposed as an ecological alternative, where nutrients can be removed from the wastewater through plant uptake; however, cultivation of plants in a temperate climate, such as Sweden, implies that additional energy is needed during the colder and darker period.
