  1. 1. Studies of moisture and alkalinity in self-levelling flooring compounds

    University dissertation from Division of Building Materials, LTH, Lund University

    Author : Anders Anderberg; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; alkalinity; SLC; floor screed; moisture transport; self-levelling flooring compound; Material technology; diffusion coefficient; materialteknik; Materiallära; secondary emissions; sorption isotherm;

    Abstract : In recent decades there has been an increasing interest in the indoor environment and its connections with public health. One important topic discussed has been the relation between the moisture in buildings and health. Cementitious materials, when cast, contain excess water since this is necessary for workability and for flow properties. READ MORE

  2. 2. Reactor Applications and Process Monitoring for Improved Anaerobic Digestion

    University dissertation from Siv Holmqvist, Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Tor Gunnar Jantsch; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; pH-indicators; spectrophotometric; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; alkalinity; monitoring; UASB reactor; spent sulphite liquor; caustic extraction liquor; sulphite evaporator condensate; pulp wastewater; Anaerobic digestion; biogas;

    Abstract : Biogas, a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide, is produced by microorganisms upon degradation of organic matter in an anaerobic environment. It has been realised that by utilising anaerobic processes the organic pollutants in wastewater and organic solid waste from anthropogenic sources can be converted into a renewable source of energy.

  3. 3. Effects of wood ash on freshwater organisms and aquatic forest ecosystems

    University dissertation from Sundsvall : Mid Sweden University

    Author : K. Andreas Aronsson; Mittuniversitetet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Wood ash; Euglena gracilis; Gammarus pulex; Fontinalis antipyretica; pH; alkalinity; toxicity; nutrients; first order stream; Askåterföring; Vedaska; Akvatiska näringssystem; Mineralnäring; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : Wood ash application (WAA) has been recommended mainly for two reasons; i) to avoid depletion of minerals in the soil due to whole tree harvest in the forestry and ii) to mitigate harmful effects of acidification of soil and surface waters. In conclusion, the effects on terrestrial ecosystems and, especially, tree growth, can be attributed to the properties of the ash, the dose applied and the specific site at which the ash is applied.

  4. 4. Performance and control of biofilm systems with partial nitritation and Anammox for supernatant treatment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Beata Szatkowska; KTH.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; alkalinity; Anammox; conductivity; partial nitritation; pH; removal rate; supernatant; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Environmental engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Separate treatment of supernatant with dewatering of digested sludge with application of partial nitritation/Anammox process is assessed to be a cost-effective way to remove about 10-15% of influent nitrogen and, thereby, facilitate possibilities to reach required effluent requirements from the plant. The combined partial nitritation/Anammox process can be performed in two separate reactors or in one-stage. READ MORE

  5. 5. Anaerobic Digestion – Microbial Ecology, Improved Operational Design and Process Monitoring

    University dissertation from Siv Holmqvist, Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Marika Murto; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; monitoring; UASB; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; methanogens; fluorescence in situ hybridisation; FISH; co-digestion; biogas; biofilm; aqueous two phase system; anaerobic digestion; 16S rDNA; alkalinity;

    Abstract : The implementation of anaerobic digestion is important in the concept of sustainable development, especially regarding the environmental benefits. Biogas is produced when organic matter is degraded by microorganisms under oxygen-free (anaerobic) conditions. READ MORE
