  1. 1. Anaerobic digestion of horse manure renewable energy and plant nutrients in a systems perspective

    University dissertation from Gävle : Gävle University Press

    Author : Åsa Hadin; Högskolan i Gävle.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Horse manure; horse keeping; anaerobic digestion; nutrient recycling; systems perspective; bedding; methane potential; feedstock; biogas; biofertilizer; Hästgödsel; hästhållning; rötning; näringsåterföring; systemperspektiv; strömaterial; metanpotential; biogassubstrat; biogas; biogödsel;

    Abstract : In horse keeping horse manure is produced, which can be utilized as a fertilizer or considered a waste. Horse manure constitutes a resource in terms of both plant nutrients and energy. In addition energy policies and objectives aim at replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources. READ MORE

  2. 2. Biogas Production from Citrus Wastes and Chicken Feather Pretreatment and Co-digestion

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Gergely Forgács; Högskolan i Borås.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning; anaerobic digestion; pretreatments; co-digestion; economic analyses; citrus wastes; feather; Energi; material;

    Abstract : Anaerobic digestion is a sustainable and economically feasible waste management technology, which lowers the emission of greenhouse gases (GHGs), decreases the soil and water pollution, and reduces the dependence on fossil fuels. The present thesis investigates the anaerobic digestion of waste from food-processing industries, including citrus wastes (CWs) from juice processing and chicken feather from poultry slaughterhouses.

  3. 3. Anaerobic digestion of crop residues at low temperatures

    University dissertation from Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Author : Irene Bohn; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; kontroll av utsläpp; Miljöteknik; Environmental technology; pollution control; methanogens; low temperature; crop residues; Anaerobic digestion; farm-scale digestion; fluorescence in situ hybridization;

    Abstract : Biogas is a renewable source of energy. Residues from agriculture contain considerable energy potential and are suitable substrates for biogas production, but in Sweden the utilization of these residues is low. The economic feasibility of biogas production in general is low, and only limited subsidies are provided by the state. READ MORE

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

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

    Author : Marika Murto; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [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

  5. 5. Anaerobic Digestion of Solid Residues on the Bolivian Altiplano

    University dissertation from Department of Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Rene Alvarez; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; Altiplano; renewable energy; temperature fluctuation; low temperature; farm-scale digestion; manure; solid residues; Anaerobic Digestion; biogas;

    Abstract : Anaerobic digestion and the production of biogas can provide an efficient means of meeting energy needs locally and reducing organic loading due to untreated waste material in water recipients. Furthermore, residues after anaerobic digestion may be used as a fertilizer to improve the soil in many parts of the world. READ MORE
