  2. 2. Simulations of Evaporation Plants in Kraft Pulp Mills: Including Lignin Extraction and Use of Excess Heat

    Author : Marcus Olsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; kraft pulp mill.; lignin extraction; heat integration; process integration; energy saving; excess heat; simulation; Energy-efficient evaporation; modelling;

    Abstract : In this thesis, evaporation plants at kraft pulp mills are simulated with the purpose of making them more energy efficient. The work is important since energy saving is assumed to be one of the major solutions for handling the world's energy demand in the future. READ MORE

  3. 3. Shaping Future Opportunities for Biomass Gasification - The Role of Integration

    Author : Johan Ahlström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; process integration; heat integration; power-to-gas; Biomethane; SNG; Biorefinery; hydrogen; sawmill; Gasification;

    Abstract : A considerable number of studies indicate that biofuels produced from lignocellulosic biomass will most probably play a significant role in achieving the climate goals stated in the Paris agreement. Several candidate technologies could be implemented to produce these fuels, and one of the most promising is thermal gasification. READ MORE

  4. 4. Techno-economic evaluation of integrated lignocellulosic ethanol production

    Author : Elisabeth Joelsson; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; distillers dried grain with solubles; biorefinery; modelling; Aspen Plus; biogas; logging residues; spruce; wheat straw; wheat grain; heat; integration; pinch analysis; techno-economic evaluation; first generation; second generation; Ethanol; Lignocellulosic material;

    Abstract : Sweden has claimed that it wants to have a fossil-free vehicle fleet in 2030 as a milestone of its ambitious goal for 2050 to be a country with a sustainable and resource-efficient energy supply without any net GHG emissions. Production of bioethanol from plant materials is one potential method of meeting this goal. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling the dynamics of domestic low-temperature heat pump heating systems for improved performance and thermal comfort : a systems approach

    Author : Dimitra Sakellari; Per Lundqvist; Savvas Tassou; KTH; []
    Keywords : Technology; heat pump; domestic heating and ventilation; low-temperature hydronic heat distribution; systems approach; integration; simulation; energy efficiency; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The present environmental concerns and the rising human requirement for solutions with better comfort and lower costs have resulted in an increased awareness for the energy use in the built environment. Technical advances in building structural systems and materials, heating and other comfort-providing systems and controlling strategies all lead to the integration of building technology with the function of buildings and the aesthetics.
