  1. 1. Microalgal solutions in Nordic conditions : industries transition toward resource recovery?

    Author : Lina Mattsson; Catherine Legrand; Elin Lindehoff; Hanna Farnelid; Kristian Spilling; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microalgae; algal cultivation; polyculture; resource recovery; seasonal variation; industrial partnership; CO2 mitigation; nitrogen removal; community composition; Ecology; Ekologi; Environmental Biotechnology; Miljöbioteknik; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Microalgal solutions can through photosynthesis recover greenhouse gas (CO2) and nutrients from industrial waste, reducing climate footprint and eutrophication. An added value to the process is algal biomass containing lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates with commercial potential for biofuel, feed, and fertilizer. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investigating the Reaction Kinetics of Tropical Wood Biomass : A Prospect for Energy Recovery

    Author : Kehinde Oluoti; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : Wood; Pyrolysis; gasification; char; kinetic parameters; SEM-EDX; AAEM; Resursåtervinning; Resource Recovery;

    Abstract : The utilization of wood biomass for energy recovery purposes is a phenomenon that is increasingly attracting attentions from researchers, companies and countries all over the world. The effect of climate change as largely represented by global warming leading to glacier ice melting and an unprecedented rise in sea level is a worrisome development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fruit wastes to biomaterials : Development of biofilms and 3D objects in a circular economy system

    Author : Veronika Bátori; Kristiina Oksman; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : apple pomace; biodegradable; bioplastics; circular economy; orange waste; resource recovery; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : To address the current plastic pollution problem, the replacement of conventional plastics with bioplastics can be considered. Although the land use of crop cultivation for bioplastics is still negligible, there is an increasing interest in the utilisation of lignocellulosic waste products for the production of bioplastics.

  4. 4. Fungi-based biorefinery model for food industry waste : progress toward a circular economy

    Author : Pedro Souza Filho; Satinder Kaur Brar; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; filamentous fungi; circular economy; biorefinery; food industry; fungal biomass; bioplastic; resource recovery; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : The food industry, one of the most important industrial sectors worldwide, generates large amounts of biodegradable waste with high organic load. In recent years, the traditional management methods to treat this waste (e.g., landfilling) have been considered not suitable because they do not exploit the potential of the waste material.

  5. 5. Landfill mining approach for resource recovery from glass dumps into the circular economy

    Author : Richard Mutafela; William Hogland; Lennart Mårtensson; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Resource recovery; landfill mining; hazardous waste; hydrometallurgical extraction; geophysical mapping; circular economy; Återvinning av resurser; gruvdrift; farligt avfall; hydrometallurgisk utvinning; geofysisk kartläggning; cirkulär ekonomi; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : Landfills and open dumps have been the most cost-effective waste disposal option, resulting in over 500,000 landfills and dumps in the EU alone. They pose significant environmental and health threats due to emission of toxic gases and release of persistent contaminants to soil and groundwater, triggering a considerable global economic impact annually.
