  1. 1. Anaerobic digestion of horse manure renewable energy and plant nutrients in a systems perspective

    University dissertation from Gävle : Gävle University Press

    Author : Åsa Hadin; Högskolan i Gävle.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Horse manure; horse keeping; anaerobic digestion; nutrient recycling; systems perspective; bedding; methane potential; feedstock; biogas; biofertilizer; Hästgödsel; hästhållning; rötning; näringsåterföring; systemperspektiv; strömaterial; metanpotential; biogassubstrat; biogas; biogödsel;

    Abstract : In horse keeping horse manure is produced, which can be utilized as a fertilizer or considered a waste. Horse manure constitutes a resource in terms of both plant nutrients and energy. In addition energy policies and objectives aim at replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources. READ MORE

  2. 2. From waste problem to renewable energy resource exploring horse manure as feedstock for anaerobic digestion

    University dissertation from Gävle : Gävle University Press

    Author : Åsa Hadin; Högskolan i Gävle.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; horse manure; environmental systems analysis; energy systems; renewable energy; environmental impact; anaerobic digestion; biogas; biofertilizer; systems perspective; bedding; incineration; composting; horse manure utilization;

    Abstract : A sustainable energy system requires, according to energy policies, reduced emissions of greenhouse gases, increased ratio of renewable sources of energy and more efficient use of energy. Horse manure could be regarded as waste, but also as a resource for renewable energy and plant nutrients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Impact of horse-keeping on phosphorus (P) concentrations in soil and water

    University dissertation from Gävle : Gävle University Press

    Author : Masud Parvage; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Agricultural sources contribute significantly to the high phosphorus (P) loads in water, causing eutrophication in many of Europe’s water bodies. Consequently, priority has been given to reducing P leakage from sources, including soils used for animal farming. READ MORE

  4. 4. Design and experimental studies of a biomass fired furnace for small- and medium scale heating applications

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Joakim Lundgren; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy Engineering; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : The main objective of the work was to develop a biomass fired furnace for small and medium scale heating systems, which has the ability to manage wet as well as unclassified biofuels with maintained low emissions of harmful substances. The system should also be able to cope with large and frequently occurring thermal output variations fulfilling rigorous environmental restrictions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Refining of hydrochars/ hydrothermally carbonized biomass into activated carbons and their applications

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK), Stockholm University
