  1. 1. Investigation of Emission Characteristics for Diluted Flames and Renewable Fuels in Gas Turbine Combustors

    Author : Fredrik Hermann; Kraftverksteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; framdrivningssystem; Motorer; termodynamik; Motors and propulsion systems; Termisk teknik; applied thermodynamics; Thermal engineering; combustor rig experiments; combustor reactor models; synthetic fuel; liquid fuel; gaseous fuel; UHC; CO; NOx; emission measurements; CO2 enriched; humidified combustion; diluted combustion; premixed combustion; Gas turbine; combustion chamber; Energiforskning; Energy research;

    Abstract : Gas turbines have served as economically profitable and reliable generators of power for the past few decades, and have mainly been used in simple and combined cycles. The increased restrictions on hazardous emissions and the increased demand for profitability have created new prospects for innovative power cycles. READ MORE

  2. 2. Environmental records of carbonaceous fly-ash particles from fossil-fuel combustion

    Author : Maria Wik; Lars Ericson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Carbonaceous particles; soot; anthropogenic particles; oil and coal combustion; fossil fuel combustion; lake sediments; lake acidification; forest soils; historical monitoring;

    Abstract : Fossil fuel combustion produces fly-ash particles that are released into the atmosphere and deposited in the environment. A particularly characteristic kind of fly-ash is spheroidal carbonaceous particles. They are composed of an amorphous carbon matrix in which other elements are dispersed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Application of fuel design to mitigate ash-related problems during combustion of biomass

    Author : Anders Rebbling; Christoffer Boman; Dan Boström; Marcus Öhman; Nils Skoglund; Sonja Enestam; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermochemical energy conversion; biomass; combustion; ash chemistry; fuel design; ash transformation reactions; renewable energy;

    Abstract : The energy supply of today is, through the use of fossil energy carriers,contributing to increased net emissions of greenhouse gases. This hasseveral negative effects on our environment and our climate. In order toreduce the impact of this, and possibly to reverse some of the effects, allrenewable energy sources must be used.

  4. 4. Alcohol Flexible Dual-Fuel Direct Injection Engine

    Author : Michael Saccullo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fuel spray; Dual-fuel; Dual-direct injection; E85; Ethanol; Heavy duty engine; Diffusion combustion; Methanol;

    Abstract : Laws concerning emissions from HD internal combustion engines are becoming increasingly stringent in terms of local emissions and emissions concerning global warming such as lowering tailpipe CO2. New engine technologies are needed to satisfy these new requirements and to reduce fossil fuel dependency and increase renewable fuels in the transportation sector. READ MORE

  5. 5. Particulate and gaseous emissions from residential biomass combustion

    Author : Christoffer Boman; Anders Nordin; Ingwald Obernberger; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Chemistry; aerosols; air pollution; emissions; fuel pellets; residential biomass combustion; inorganic characterization; incomplete combustion; particulate matter; polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons; trace elements; Kemi; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : Biomass is considered to be a sustainable energy source with significant potentials for replacing electricity and fossil fuels, not at least in the residential sector. However, present wood combustion is a major source of ambient concentrations of hydrocarbons (e.g. READ MORE
