  1. 1. Opportunities and uncertainties in the early stages of development of CO2 capture and storage

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Mårten Lind; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Acceptance; cement; CCS; CO2 capture and storage; early opportunities; enhanced oil recovery; expert opinions; hybrid power cycles; optimism; oxyfuel combustion; pressurised fluidised bed combustion; pilot plant; potassium carbonate; risk; Sargas; scenario studies; scientific uncertainty; stakeholder perceptions; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Chemical process and manufacturing engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS), which is a technology that is currently being promoted by industries, scientists and governments, among others, in order to mitigate climate change despite a continued use of fossil fuels. Because of the complex nature of CCS and the risks it entails, it is controversial. READ MORE

  2. 2. Partial carbon capture – an opportunity to decarbonize primary steelmaking

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Max Biermann; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; excess heat; amine absorption; partial CO2 capture; process industry; cost estimation; CCS; steel making;

    Abstract : Climate change requires that all energy-related sectors drastically reduce their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). To have a high likelihood of limiting global warming to 1.5°C, large-scale mitigation of GHG has to start being implemented and cause emissions to fall well before Year 2030. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cost-effective fuel and technology choices in the transportation sector in a future carbon constrained world: Results from the Global Energy Transition (GET) model

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Abstract : The main objective of this thesis is to investigate two different concepts for CO2 mitigation, from a system perspective, in relation to the oil refining industry: CO2 capture and storage; and algae-based biofuels. For all these processes, process integration with an oil refinery is assumed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reducing Carbon Emissions From Natural Gas-fired Power Plants – Biomass, Concentrated Solar and Carbon Capture

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg
