  1. 1. Biochemical conversion of biomass to biofuels : pretreatment–detoxification–hydrolysis–fermentation

    Author : Venkata Prabhakar Soudham; Jyri-Pekka Mikkola; Christer Larsson; Tom Birger Granström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Lignocellulosic materials; Ionic liquids; Pretreatment; Inhibitors; Detoxification; Ferrous sulfate and hydrogen peroxide; reducing agents; alkaline treatments; Hydrolysis; Fermentation; Biofuels; biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : The use of lignocellulosic materials to replace fossil resources for the industrial production of fuels, chemicals, and materials is increasing. The carbohydrate composition of lignocellulose (i.e. cellulose and hemicellulose) is an abundant source of sugars. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterisation of Fuels and Fly Ashes from Co-Combustion of Biofuels and Waste Fuels in a Fluidised Bed Boiler. A Phosphorus and Alkali Perspective

    Author : Anita Pettersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; phosphorus recovery; co-combustion; fluidised bed combustion; olivine; Biofuels; zeolites; fertiliser; extraction; refuse derived fuels; kaolin; alkali; sulphur; ash; municipal sewage sludge; biofuels; Energi och material;

    Abstract : In the efforts to create sustainable production of heat and power and to reduce the net CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, alternative fuels are today being utilised. These fuels are, for example, biofuels and waste derived fuels such as different residues from the agricultural sector and the pulp and paper industry, municipal sewage sludge and municipal sorted solid waste.

  3. 3. Biofuels from Kraft Black Liquor : Pilot-Scale Gasification Development and Techno-Economic Evaluation of Industrially Relevant Biofuel Production Pathways

    Author : Yawer Jafri; Erik Furusjö; Ilkka Hannula; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biofuels; black liquor; pyrolysis oil; gasification; drop-in; energy systems; techno-economic; Energiteknik; Energy Engineering;

    Abstract : Fuel combustion for transport was responsible for 24% of EU-28 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2016. Member states are expected to ensure that the share of renewable energy in the transport sector is at least 14% by 2030. Some countries, such as Sweden, have more ambitious targets. READ MORE

  4. 4. Benefits of Integrated Upgrading of Biofuels in Biorefineries - Systems Analysis

    Author : Eva Ingeborg Elisabeth Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hydrogen; systems analysis; biorefinery; process integration; CO2 emissions; biofuels;

    Abstract : As a result of increasing concerns about climate change, there is considerable current interest in increasing use of CO2-neutral biofuel in the energy system. Increased use of biomass fuel requires that it be upgraded in order to facilitate transportation and distribution to end-users. READ MORE

  5. 5. Energy Efficient Processes for the Production of Gaseous Biofuels - Reforming and Gas Upgrading

    Author : Helena Svensson; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biofuels; Reverse-flow reforming; Gas upgrading; Amine absorption;

    Abstract : Replacing fossil fuels with biofuels is one way of reducing the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, thus decreasing our impact on the global climate. For this to be a viable option, several production routes are needed, as no single option can fully replace fossil fuels. READ MORE
