  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 : 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. Fast pyrolysis of biomass : primary products and reaction pathways

    Author : David Usino; Tobias Richards; Weihong Yang; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fast pyrolysis; Py-GC-MS FID; Primary reactions; Cellulose; Xylan; Lignin; Birch wood; Co-pyrolysis; Mahogany; Iroko; Palm kernel shell; Biomass blend; Biomass interaction; Pretreatment; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : Pyrolysis of biomass to produce liquid fuel and chemicals has been considered as an alternativeto fossil fuel because biomass has a lower environmental impact; moreover, it is renewable andcould be sustainable. However, the process of bio-oil production involves a series of complexchemical reactions which are dependent on the biomass feedstock and composition,temperature, heating rate as well as residence time.

  3. 3. Biomass gasification in ABFB : Tar mitigation

    Author : Nemanova Vera; Klas Engvall; Joan Salvadó; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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

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

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

    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
