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

    Author : Åsa Hadin; Ola Eriksson; Karl Hillman; Nils Ryrholm; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; 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. From waste problem to renewable energy resource : exploring horse manure as feedstock for anaerobic digestion

    Author : Åsa Hadin; Ola Norrman Eriksson; Karl Hillman; Nils Ryrholm; Jaana Sorvari; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; horse manure; environmental systems analysis; energy systems; renewable energy; environmental impact; anaerobic digestion; biogas; biofertilizer; systems perspective; bedding; incineration; composting; horse manure utilization;

    Abstract : A sustainable energy system requires, according to energy policies, reduced emissions of greenhouse gases, increased ratio of renewable sources of energy and more efficient use of energy. Horse manure could be regarded as waste, but also as a resource for renewable energy and plant nutrients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Anaerobic digestion of crop and waste biomass: Impact of feedstock characteristics on process performance

    Author : Nges Ivo Achu; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Anaerobic digestion; Biofertilizer; Renewable energy; Sustainable operation;

    Abstract : Anaerobic digestion provides an array of positive environmental benefits such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions, replacing mineral fertilizers, producing renewable energy and treating waste. However, pitfalls in anaerobic digestion such as poor methane yields, process instability, process failure and regional shortages of feedstock have limited the full exploitation of the anaerobic digestion process.

  4. 4. Valorisation of fish waste biomass through recovery of nutritional lipids and biogas

    Author : Betty Mbatia; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; by-products; value addition; EPA; DHA; PUFA; biogas;

    Abstract : Commercial fish catch in Eastern Africa is dominated by Nile Perch. Of the fish that is processed for human consumption, 30-40% is wasted. Currently, these wastes are not fully utilized; they are sold off at low price, converted to low valued products or left to decompose leading to environmental pollution and wastage of bioresource.

  5. 5. Systems Analysis for Eco-Industrial Development : Applied on Cement and Biogas Production Systems

    Author : Roozbeh Feiz; Mats Eklund; Jonas Ammenberg; Olli Salmi; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; industrial ecology; eco-industrial development; multi-criteria analysis; life-cycle assessment; MCA; LCA; uncertainty management; systems analysis; industrial symbiosis; cement; biogas; cement production; biogas solutions;

    Abstract : Our industrial systems are not sustainable—a major challenge which demands several types of responses. Eco-industrial development can be seen as such a response, with the goal to establish industrial systems that are both ecological and economical. Industrial Ecology is another closely related response. READ MORE
