  1. 1. Towards More Robust Saccharomyces cerevisiae Strains for Lignocellulosic Bioethanol Production: Lessons from process concepts and physiological investigations

    Author : Magnus Ask; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transcriptome; SHF; glutathione; SSF; furfural; redox metabolism; Arundo donax; Lignocellulosic bioethanol; spruce; HMF;

    Abstract : Dwindling oil reserves and the negative impacts of fossil fuels on the environment call for more sustainable energy sources. First-generation bioethanol produced from sugar cane and corn has met some of these needs, but it competes with the food supply for raw materials. READ MORE

  2. 2. Concepts for improving ethanol productivity from lignocellulosic materials encapsulated yeast and membrane bioreactors

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Päivi Ylitervo; Högskolan i Borås.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning; Encapsulated yeast; Biofuel; S. cerevisiae; Membrane bioreactors; Thermotolerance; Furfural; Acetic acid; Resource Recovery;

    Abstract : Lignocellulosic biomass is a potential feedstock for production of sugars, which can be fermented into ethanol. The work presented in this thesis proposes some solutions to overcome problems with suboptimal process performance due to elevated cultivation temperatures and inhibitors present during ethanol production from lignocellulosic materials.

  3. 3. Ethanol production from lignocellulose using high local cell density yeast cultures. Investigations of flocculating and encapsulated Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University dissertation from University of Borås: School of Engineering ; Chalmers University of Technology: Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering

    Author : Johan Westman; Högskolan i Borås.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning; yeast; encapsulation; lignocellulose; ethanol; fermentation; flocculation; inhibitors; tolerance; xylose; co-utilisation; Resource Recovery; Yeast;

    Abstract : Efforts are made to change from 1st to 2nd generation bioethanol production, using lignocellulosics as raw materials rather than using raw materials that alternatively can be used as food sources. An issue with lignocellulosics is that a harsh pretreatment step is required in the process of converting them into fermentable sugars. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Folates in Yeasts -Exploring Yeasts as Vehicles for Biofortification of Folates in Food

    University dissertation from University of Borås: School of Engineering ; Chalmers University of Technology: Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering

    Author : Sofia Hjortmo; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; yeast; B vitamin; biofortification; bread; indigenous food; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; folic acid; fermented food; togwa; Folate;

    Abstract : High intake of the B vitamin folate during pregnancy is known to decrease the risk for development of neural tube defects. In addition, a good folate status may prevent the progression of several diseases such as megaloblastic anaemia, cardiovascular disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. READ MORE

  5. 5. Industrial Phantasmagoria Subcultural Interactive Cinema Meets Mass-Cultural Media of Simulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Mikolaj Dymek; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; video game industry; computer game industry; video games; computer games; cultural industries; media industries; cultural economy; game studies; literary theory; ludology; narratology; interactive cinema; simulational media; ergodic literature; cybertext; interactive narrative; business studies; industrial economy; hardcore gaming; casual gaming; subcultural industries; TECHNOLOGY Industrial engineering and economy; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Industriell teknik och ekonomi;

    Abstract : The video game industry has in three decades gone from a garage hobby to a global multi-billion euro media industry that challenges the significantly older and established cultural industries. After decades of explosive growth the industry surprisingly finds itself in a crisis – in terms of sales, future trajectories and creative paradigms. READ MORE
