  1. 1. Biofuels from Kraft Black Liquor : Pilot-Scale Gasification Development and Techno-Economic Evaluation of Industrially Relevant Biofuel Production Pathways

    Author : Yawer Jafri; Erik Furusjö; Ilkka Hannula; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biofuels; black liquor; pyrolysis oil; gasification; drop-in; energy systems; techno-economic; Energiteknik; Energy Engineering;

    Abstract : Fuel combustion for transport was responsible for 24% of EU-28 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2016. Member states are expected to ensure that the share of renewable energy in the transport sector is at least 14% by 2030. Some countries, such as Sweden, have more ambitious targets. READ MORE

    Abstract : The aim of the thesis is to analyze the design of the present climate and energy policies. The main focus is on how the policy instruments affect the Swedish stakeholders who are included in the European Union’s Emission Trading Scheme (EU-ETS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Aspects of Energy Resource Management

    Author : Tomas Kåberger; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : bio-energy; value; interdisciplinary; life-cycle analysis; tax-shift; resource; energy; electricity;

    Abstract : Energy resource management requires input from many disciplines. The three first papers in this thesis deals with the use of physical terms in the interdisciplinary process where inputs from different disciplines are handled together. READ MORE

  4. 4. Process integration to increase woody biomass utilization for energy purposes

    Author : Sennai Mesfun; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy Engineering; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : Woody biomass is an abundant renewable energy resource in Sweden, and the Swedish government has been promoting research and development programs for the exploitation of this resource as a mean to meet the targets on the reduction of the carbon dioxide emissions from the industrial, energy and transportation sectors. This thesis aims at expanding the knowledge on the efficient utilization of the available woody biomass, so that a larger amount of this renewable resource can be used for energy purposes. READ MORE
