  1. 1. Process development for platform chemical production from agricultural and forestry residues

    Author : David Nickel; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; multi-scale variability analysis; logging residues; ethanol; lactic acid; preadaptation; pretreatment; lignocellulose; Biorefinery; platform chemicals; multi-feed SSCF; mixed feedstocks;

    Abstract : As part of a bio-based economy, biorefineries are envisaged to sustainably produce platform chemicals via biochemical conversion of agricultural and forestry residues. However, supply risks, the recalcitrance of lignocellulosic biomass, and inhibitor formation during pre­treatment impair the economic feasibility of such biorefineries. READ MORE

  2. 2. Opportunities to broaden biomass feedstocks in thermochemical conversion technologies

    Author : Lara Carvalho; Joakim Lundgren; Elisabeth Wetterlund; Erik Furusjö; Andrea Ramírez Ramírez; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Non-woody biomass; Combustion; Gasification; Biofuels; Techno-economic analysis; Energiteknik; Energy Engineering;

    Abstract : Global environmental concerns are motivating a growing interest in broadening the biomass feedstock base in several energy sectors, including (i) the domestic heating sector, presently dominated by stem wood combustion, and (ii) biofuel production, presently dominated by edible crops. The objective of this thesis is to investigate new opportunities to broaden the biomass feedstock in thermochemical conversion technologies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Pyrolysis of mixed plastics and paper to produce fuels and other chemicals

    Author : Nanta Sophonrat; Weihong Yang; Linda Sandström; Tobias Richards; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Pyrolysis; Mixed plastics and biomass; Cellulose; Refuse derived fuels RDF ; Paper rejects; Interactions; Stepwise pyrolysis; Calcium oxide CaO ; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : As the world population and economy grow, higher consumption results in higher waste packaging, plastics and paper residues. Pyrolysis offers a way to recover fuels and other chemicals from this waste fraction. READ MORE

  4. 4. Transition metal and alloy catalysts in the light of computational materials modelling

    Author : Ageo Meier de Andrade; Peter Broqvist; Jolla Kullgren; Elsebeth Schröder; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; density functional theory; dispersion corrections; density functional analysis; transition metal; alloys; work function; lignin valorization; keto-enol tautomerization; Kemi med inriktning mot materialkemi; Chemistry with specialization in Materials Chemistry;

    Abstract : This thesis is built around two pillars. One is heterogeneous catalysis in the broader context of green chemistry. The focus here is on identifying catalytically active materials suitable for the valorization of renewable feedstocks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Techno-economic analysis of integrated biomass gasification for green chemical production

    Author : Jim Andersson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy Engineering; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : Production of renewable motor fuels and green chemicals is important in the development towards a more sustainable society where fossil fuels are replaced. The global annual production of methanol and ammonia from fossil fuels is very large. READ MORE
