  1. 1. Biomass to Biofuel : Syngas Cleaning and Biomass Feedstock

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ramiar Sadegh-Vaziri; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gas-Solid Reaction; ZnO Sul_dation; Outward Growth; Hollow Particles; Algae Flocculation; PBEs; Fractal Clusters; Restructuring of Clusters; Deposition of Clusters; Primary Particle Aggregation.;

    Abstract : This thesis builds around the idea of a biofuel production process that is comprised of biomass production, biomass gasification, gas cleaning, and fuel production. In this work, we specifically looked into H2S removal as a part of cleaning the producer gas and flocculation of microalgae which is involved in the harvesting of microalgae after biomass production.

  2. 2. Biomass-fuelled PEM FuelCell systems for small andmedium-sized enterprises

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Tingting Guan; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; PEMFC; renewable hydrogen production; biomass; hydrogen-rich gas; biomass conversion; anaerobic digestion; steam reforming; CO removal; gasification; sustainable energy system;

    Abstract : Biomass-fuelled proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) offer asolution for replacing fossil fuel for hydrogen production. Through using thebiomass-derived hydrogen as fuel, PEMFCs may become an efficient andsustainable energy system for small and medium-sized enterprises. READ MORE

  3. 3. Turbomachinery in Biofuel Production

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Martin Görling; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bio-Methanol; Biomass; Gasification; Humidification; Hybrid Cycle; SNG; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Chemical process and manufacturing engineering Chemical energy engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik Kemisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : The aim for this study has been to evaluate the integration potential of turbo-machinery into the production processes of biofuels. The focus has been on bio-fuel produced via biomass gasification; mainly methanol and synthetic natural gas. The research has been divided into two parts; gas and steam turbine applications.

  4. 4. Biomass Pre-treatment for the Production of Sustainable Energy Emissions and Self-ignition

    University dissertation from Växjö : Växjö University Press

    Author : Katarina Rupar-Gadd; Växjö universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; terpenes; SPME; biomass; pellets; self-ignition; storage; drying; calorimetry; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik; Bioteknik; Biotechnology;

    Abstract : Organic emissions with focus on terpenes, from biomass drying and storage were investigated by Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME) and GC-FID and GC-MS. The remaining terpenes in the biomass (Spruce and pine wood chips) after drying were dependant on the drying temperature and drying medium used. READ MORE

  5. 5. On Sustainability of Biomass for Energy and the Governance Thereof

    University dissertation from Växjö : Växjö University Press

    Author : Oskar Englund; [2016]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sustainability; land use; spatial modelling; biomass production; certification; environmental legislation; biomass resources; ecosystem services; Bioenergy; GIS; biodiversity; governance;

    Abstract : Due to concerns about climate change, energy security, and resource scarcity, non- renewable resources are increasingly being displaced by biomass. As with most human activities, the production of biobased products can be associated with negative impacts. Primarily, this relates to the biomass supply systems, i.e. READ MORE
