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

    Author : Ramiar Sadegh-Vaziri; Matthäus Bäbler; Per Alvfors; Lilian de Martin; Longcheng Liu; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; 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 gasification in ABFB : Tar mitigation

    Author : Nemanova Vera; Klas Engvall; Joan Salvadó; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Ash; biomass; char; gasification; iron-based; petcoke; tar; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Biomass gasification may be an attractive alternative for meeting future energy demand. Although gasification is a mature technology, it has yet to be fully commercialised due to tar formation. This study focuses on the tar mitigation in gas produced in an atmospheric bubbling fluidised bed (ABFB) gasification system. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fractionation of woody biomass : lignin and suberin in focus

    Author : Ivan Kumaniaev; Joseph Samec; Claudia Crestini; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lignocellulose; lignin; suberin; biomass; palladium; catalysis; flow chemistry; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis is dedicated to the research of fractionation and valorization of different types of woody biomass. In the first part, oak (Quercus suber) and birch (Betula pendula) barks are considered. Bark is the outer layer of wood and is treated as waste in the current wood processing technologies. READ MORE

  5. 5. From torrefaction to gasification : Pilot scale studies for upgrading of biomass

    Author : Martin Strandberg; Anders Nordin; Linda Pommer; Jaap Kiel; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Torrefaction; biomass; pilot scale; continuous reactor; grindability; entrained flow gasification; degree of torrefaction; biomass powder;

    Abstract : Increasing the share of biomass, preferably by replacing fossil fuels, is one way to mitigate the present climate change. Fossil coal can be directly replaced by co-combustion of coal and biomass and fossil engine fuels (gasoline and diesel) could potentially partly be replaced by synthetic renewable fuels produced via entrained flow gasification of biomass.
