    Abstract : In this thesis we have performed core-electron spectroscopy studies of gas phase molecular systems starting with smaller diatomic, continuing with triatomic and extending our research to more complex polyatomic ones. We can subdivide the results presented here into two categories: the first one focusing on electronic fine structure and effect of the chemical bonds on molecular core-levels and the other one dealing with nuclear dynamics induced by creation of a core hole.

  2. 2. Dual-Fuel Combustion in a Heavy-Duty Engine

    Author : Zhiqin Jia; Chalmers University of Technology; []

    Abstract : The need to control climate change and improve the fuel effieciency of internal combustion engines has prompted global efforts to develop alternative fuels in order to reduce dependence on conventional petroleum derivatives. This thesis deals with three such alternative fuels: compressed natural gas (CNG), pure methane (used to mimic biogas), and methanol. READ MORE

  3. 3. Valorisation of fish waste biomass through recovery of nutritional lipids and biogas

    Author : Betty Mbatia; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; by-products; value addition; EPA; DHA; PUFA; biogas;

    Abstract : Commercial fish catch in Eastern Africa is dominated by Nile Perch. Of the fish that is processed for human consumption, 30-40% is wasted. Currently, these wastes are not fully utilized; they are sold off at low price, converted to low valued products or left to decompose leading to environmental pollution and wastage of bioresource.
