  1. 1. Inorganic ions in wood chips- Leaching prior to Kraft pulping and effect of calcium on Kraft delignification

    Author : Anna Saltberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; modelling; calcium; Scandinavian softwood; Keywords: Kraft pulping; potassium; birch; eucalyptus; aspen; acidic leaching; oxalate.;

    Abstract : Wood is the main source of Non-Process Elements (NPEs), such as, calcium, potassium, manganese and chloride in Kraft pulp mills. Due to the recirculation of cooking chemicals and water, process disturbances related to the accumulation of NPEs in the process streams are inevitable. READ MORE

  2. 2. On the Extraction of Essential Oils by Supercritical Carbon Dioxide and its Influence on the Mesomorphic Phase Structures

    Author : José da Cruz Francisco; Kemiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Natural oils; fats and waxes technology; Naturliga oljor; fetter; vax; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi; Chemical technology and engineering; Livsmedelsteknik; Food and drink technology; phase behavior; soybean lecithin; monoolein; cineole; terpenes; eucalyptus; extraction; Essential oils; supercritical carbon dioxide;

    Abstract : A comparison of essential oils from leaves of Eucalyptus camaldulensis Dehn. obtained by hydrodistillation (HD) and supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2) extraction is presented. Selected major components of the oils showed a predominance of higher molecular weight components in the SC-CO2 extracts than in those obtained by HD. READ MORE

  3. 3. Removal of Metal Ions from Wood Chips during Acidic Leaching

    Author : Anna Saltberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Scandinavian softwood; spruce; calcium; diffusion coefficient; potassium; birch; Acidic leaching; eucalyptus; metal ions; oxalate;

    Abstract : Wood chips are the main source of intake of non-process elements at kraft pulp mills. It would be advantageous to decrease the content of these elements in the chips prior to pulping. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genomic selection and genome-wide association studies to dissect quantitative traits in forest trees

    Author : Biyue Tan; Pär K. Ingvarsson; Björn Sundberg; Harry X. Wu; Dario Grattapaglia; Xiao-Ru Wang; Leopoldo Sanchez; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Genomic prediction; genome-wide association study; additive effects; dominance effects; epistasis effects; realized relationship matrix; Eucalyptus grandis; Eucalyptus urophylla;

    Abstract : The convergence of quantitative genetics of complex traits with genomic technologies is quickly becoming an innovative approach to explore fundamental genetic questions and also have practical consequences for implementations in tree breeding. In this thesis, I used genomic selection and genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to dissect the genetic basis of quantitative traits, i. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the importance of oxidizable structures in bleached kraft pulps

    Author : Olena Sevastyanova; Göran Gellerstedt; Colodette Jorge; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bleached pulps; betula; eucalyptus; 5-formyl-2furancarboxylic acid; 2-furancarboxylic acid; hexenuronic acid; kappa number; kraft pulps; oxidation equivalents; Cellulose and paper engineering; Cellulosa- och pappersteknik;

    Abstract : After cooking, kraft pulps always contain not only residual lignin but also significant amounts of hexenuronic acid and other non-lignin structures oxidizable by permanganate under the standard kappa number determination conditions. These here referred to as false lignin. READ MORE
