  1. 1. Ammonia as an Absorbent of Carbon Dioxide in Post-Combustion Capture - an Experimental, Technical and Economic Process Evaluation

    Author : Henrik Jilvero; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cost of capture; carbon dioxide; carbon capture; power plant; ammonia; process simulations;

    Abstract : Carbon capture and storage is vital to facilitating the transition from our current fossil fuel-based energy system to a sustainable energy system. The concept of post-combustion capture is based on the selective chemical absorption of carbon dioxide (CO2). READ MORE

  2. 2. Oxy-Fuel Combustion Combined Cycles for Carbon Capture

    Author : Egill Maron Thorbergsson; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; conceptual compressor design; oxy-fuel combustion combined cycles; Graz cycle; Carbon capture and storage; Semi-closed Oxy-fuel Combustion Combined Cycle;

    Abstract : A short and medium term method to decrease carbon dioxide emissions is carbon capture and storage. This method captures carbon dioxide from point sources of emissions and then stores the carbon dioxide in geological formations. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    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

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

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to explore the quantitative potential to reduce energy requirements and CO2 emissions through changed patterns of consumption, given unchanged levels of consumption expenditure. The thesis question is analysed using a systems analysis approach which in this case means that life cycle assessment data on energy requirements and CO2 emissions related to household consumption are combined with a financial and behavioural analysis to make sure that the budget constraint is kept and that both the first and second order effects of adopting a green consumption pattern are analysed.
