  1. 1. Thermodynamic Simulation of HCCI Engine Systems

    Author : Olof Erlandsson; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HAM; Turbine; Compressor; Turbocharger; Engine; Modeling; HCCI; Simulation; Motors and propulsion systems; Motorer; framdrivningssystem;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on engine system simulation using thermodynamics and chemical kinetic models to investigate the performance and efficiency of Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engines for stationary applications. It includes the development of software as well as models for engine, turbocharger, intercooler, inlet and exhaust manifolds, wastegate valve, inlet air humidifier, inlet air heater and more.

  2. 2. Microbial Transformation of Organotin Compounds under Simulated Landfill Conditions

    Author : Annika Björn; Bo Svensson; Jörgen Ejlertsson; Bo Mattiasson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organotin compounds; landfill simulation; PVC; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi;

    Abstract : Mono- and di-alkyltins are used extensively as heat stabilizers for processing of poly vinyl chloride (PVC). Tin mercaptide stabilizers are some of the most effective PVC stabilizers available. The main applications for tin stabilizers are building/construction products, such as pipes, fittings, siding and profiles (windows etc. READ MORE

  3. 3. Phthalates in landfill leachates : a signature of their degradation: Analytical aspects & toxicological considerations

    Author : Susanne Jonsson; Bo Svensson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : Phthalic acid diesters comprise a large group of organic compounds that are used to manufacture a variety of products all over the world, and this has raised concerns about the fate of these compounds in the environment. The diester-containing products often end up in landfills, where they are degraded by various micro-organisms, which gives rise to transient intermediates such as phthalic acid monoesters and ortho-phthalic acid.

  4. 4. Environmental and economic conditions of landfill mining : The development and application of a systems analysis approach

    Author : Per Frändegård; Joakim Krook; Niclas Svensson; David Laner; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Landfill mining is a relatively unproven, still uncertain concept for extracting resources from landfills. Previous studies in the field have mainly focused on solving local environmental problems related to leaching and other landfill management issues, or characterizing the material composition of various landfills.

  5. 5. Enhancing the circular economy: Resource recovery through thermochemical conversion processes of landfill waste and biomass

    Author : Ilman Nuran Zaini; Weihong Yang; Pär Jönsson; Ashwani K. Gupta; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; gasification; pyrolysis; waste-to-energy; landfill waste; hydrogen production; circular economy; municipal solid waste; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Currently, the global economy looses a considerable amount of potential secondary raw materials from the disposed waste streams. Furthermore, the existing landfill sites that often do not have proper environmental protection technologies pose a long-lasting risk for the environment, which urge immediate actions for landfill remediations.
