  1. 1. Thermochemical behavior of pretreated biomass

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Amit Kumar Biswas; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biomass; Pretreatment; therochemical conversion; pyrolysis; combustion; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : Mankind has to provide a sustainable alternative to its energy related problems. Bioenergy is considered as one of the potential renewable energy resources and as a result bioenergy market is also expected to grow dramatically in future. However, logistic issues are of serious concern while considering biomass as an alternative to fossil fuel. READ MORE

    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

  3. 3. Biomass in a Sustainable Energy System

    University dissertation from Department of Environmental and Energy Systems Studies, Lund university

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Användningen av fossila bränslen såsom kol, olja och naturgas svarar för mer än 70% av dagens globala utsläpp av koldioxid vilket är det största antropogena bidraget till växthuseffekten. Energieffektivisering och en ökad användning av förnybara energislag, t ex bioenergi, är två nyckelstrategier för att minska utsläppen av växthusgaser. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biomass conversion through syngas-based biorefineries thermochemical process integration opportunities

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Katarina Åberg; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biomass; biorefinery; thermochemical conversion; torrefaction; slow pyrolysis; gasification; process integration; carbon negativity;

    Abstract : The replacement of fossil resources through renewable alternatives is one way to mitigate global climate change. Biomass is the only renewable source of carbon available for replacing oil as a refining feedstock. Therefore, it needs to be utilized not just as a fuel but for both biochemical and thermochemical conversion through biorefining. READ MORE
