  1. 1. Industrial Symbiosis in the Biofuel Industry : Quantification of the Environmental Performance and Identification of Synergies

    Author : Michael Martin; Mats Eklund; Laura Sokka; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Industrial symbiosis; life cycle assessment; by-product; integration; environmental performance;

    Abstract : The production of biofuels has increased in recent years, to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels and mitigate climate change. However, current production practices are heavily criticized on their environmental sustainability. READ MORE

  2. 2. Systems Analysis of Chemicals Production via Integrated Entrained Flow Biomass Gasification : Quantification and improvement of techno-economic performance

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

    Abstract : Lignocellulosic biomass gasification is a promising production pathway for green chemicals, which can support the development towards a more sustainable society where fossil fuels are replaced. To be able to compete with fossil fuels, a highly efficient production of biomassbased products is required in order to maximize overall process economics and to minimizenegative environmental impact.

  3. 3. Evaluating energy efficient buildings : Energy- and moisture performance considering future climate change

    Author : Björn Berggren; Energi och ByggnadsDesign; []
    Keywords : Net Zero Energy Building; passive house; thermal bridge; building envelope; energy performance; moisture performance; multi criteria decision making; climate change; climate scenarios; EN ISO 13789; EN ISO 10211;

    Abstract : One of the greatest challenges the world is facing is climate change. The need of reduction of energy use and an increased use of renewable energy in buildings constitutes important climate change mitigation measures. READ MORE

  4. 4. Performance Quantification of Interarea Oscillation Damping Using HVDC

    Author : Joakim Björk; Karl H. Johansson; Lennart Harnefors; Robin Preece; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HVDC transmission control; interarea oscillations; power oscillation damping; small-signal stability; frequency control; controllability; MIMO control; decoupling control; multivariable interaction; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : With the transition towards renewable energy, and the deregulation of the electricity market, generation patterns and grid topology are changing. These changes increase the need for transfer capacity. One limiting factor, which sometimes leads to underutilization of the transmission grid, is interarea oscillations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Method Development in Quantitative and Structural Proteomics using Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance Mass Spectrometry

    Author : Charlotte Hagman; Per Håkansson; Jonas Bergquist; Jos Buijs; Michael Przybylski; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Biotechnology; Cerebrospinal Fluid; Electrospray Ionization; Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance Mass Spectrometry; Global Markers; High Performance Liquid Chromatography; Gas-Phase Exchange; Hydrogen Deuterium Exchange; Plasma; Protoemics; Quantification; Structural Elucidation; Bioteknik; Bioengineering; Bioteknik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, methods for studying different aspects of proteomics were developed with Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance, (FTICR), mass spectrometry. The FTICR technique provides ultra-high mass resolving power, mass accuracy at sub ppm level and sensitivity in the attomole region. READ MORE
