  1. 1. Chemical Properties of FBC Ashes

    Author : Britt-Marie Steenari; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; straw ash; environmental impact of ash handling; sintering; deposits; fouling; wood ash recycling; FBC; ash leaching; ash chemistry; PFBC; forest fertiliser; ash hydration reactions; fuel additives; wood ash characteristics; CaS; ash melting; plant nutrient recycling;

    Abstract : In this thesis several aspects of ash chemistry are discussed. An issue of primary concern for boiler operators is the formation of ash deposits. New biomass fuels are introduced, many of which have unfavourable ash melting behaviour due to high levels of alkali metal species and chlorine. READ MORE

  2. 2. On ash : a 12-year population ecological study of Fraxinus excelsior L., with special reference to some of its inter-specific interactions, in the deciduous woodland of the outer archipelago of Stockholm

    Author : Per-Göran Tapper; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : Fruiting in ash was irregular over the years. Years with abundant fruit production occurred as well as more or less barren years. The resource status of the trees had no decisive influence. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ash chemistry and fuel design focusing on combustion of phosphorus-rich biomass

    Author : Nils Skoglund; Dan Boström; Rainer Backman; Franz Winter; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; phosphorus; biomass; combustion; ash chemistry; fuel design; ash transformation; phosphorus-rich; ash-forming elements; fuel fingerprint; ash transformation reactions; Lewis base; Lewis acid; oorganisk kemi; Inorganic Chemistry;

    Abstract : Biomass is increasingly used as a feedstock in global energy production. This may present operational challenges in energy conversion processes which are related to the inorganic content of these biomasses. As a larger variety of biomass is used the need for a basic understanding of ash transformation reactions becomes increasingly important. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ecotoxicological classification of ash materials

    Author : Sara Stiernström; Magnus Breitholtz; Christina Rudén; David Bendz; Olof Berglund; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ecotoxicity; ash; classification; leaching; Waste Framework Directive; CLP-Regulation; Hazard Identification; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Incineration of waste is increasing in the EU. However, in the incineration process, both fly and bottom ash materials are generated as waste that requires further action. A common goal throughout Europe is to find ways to utilize ash materials in an environmentally and economically efficient manner in accordance with the current legislation. READ MORE

  5. 5. An exploration of the mechanisms behind peripheral nerve injury

    Author : Rebecca Wiberg; Liudmila Novikova; Paul Kingham; Ash Mosahebi; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peripheral nerve injury; target organ; spinal motoneurons; primary sensory neurons; degeneration; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Despite surgical innovation, the sensory and motor outcome after peripheral nerve injury is incomplete. In this thesis, the biological pathways potentially responsible for the poor functional recoveries were investigated in both the distal nerve stump/target organ, spinal motoneurons and dorsal root ganglia (DRG).
