  1. 1. Agro-Waste Derived Additives for Polylactide and Tapioca Starch

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Edwin Azwar; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Agro-industrial waste; wood flour; rice bran; polylactide; starch; biomass; degradation; SRA - E-Science SeRC ; SRA - E-vetenskap SeRC ;

    Abstract : Development of materials from renewable resources is one of the big challenges facing our world. In this thesis agro-industrial waste derivatives were developed and evaluated as additives for two common renewable polymer matrices, polylactide (PLA) and starch. Two waste products, wood flour (WF) and rice bran (RB) were evaluated in different forms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Forage legumes as feed for pigs in smallholder production systems in the North of Lao PDR

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Phonepaseuth Phengsavanh; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis sought to characterise and understand existing smallholder pig production systems in the North of Lao PDR and to investigate the role of forage legumes as alternative protein sources for pigs in smallholder production systems. A survey found that there were three main pig rearing systems, free-scavenging, semi-scavenging and confinement (enclosures and pens), in the study areas. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluation of local feed resources for hybrid catfish (Clarias macrocephalus x C. gariepinus) in smallholder fish farming systems in central Vietnam

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Tram Nguyen Duy Quynh; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to examine the current feeding situation for fresh water fish in Central Vietnam, to evaluate the potential nutritive value of locally available feed resources for hybrid catfish (Clarias macrocephalus x C. gariepinus) and Nile tilapia, to determine the dietary requirement of lysine for hybrid catfish, to estimate the requirements for the other essential amino acids (EAA) by using ideal protein concept, and finally to evaluate the suitability of cassava leaf meal and shrimp head meal as a partial replacement for fish meal in the diet, without or with lysine supplementation, for hybrid catfish fingerlings.

  4. 4. Evaluation of catfish by-products as protein sources for pigs in the Mekong Delta of Viet Nam

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Nguyen Thi Thuy; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to evaluate preservation methods of catfish by-products (CBP), and the effects of replacing marine fish meal (FM) with these processing byproducts on diet digestibility, performance, feed efficiency and carcass quality in growing-finishing pigs. Paper I presents data on catfish production, processing and the nutritive value of catfish by-product meals (CBM) in the Mekong Delta (MD) of Vietnam. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biomass Energy Systems and Resources in Tropical Tanzania

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Lugano Wilson; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tanzania; Tropical Biomass Energy; High Temperature Gasification HTAG ; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Mechanical and thermal engineering Mechanical energy engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Mekanisk och termisk energiteknik Mekanisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : Tanzania has a characteristic developing economy, which is dependent on agricultural productivity.  About 90% of the total primary energy consumption of the country is from biomass.  Since the biomass is mostly consumed at the household level in form of wood fuel, it is marginally contributing to the commercial energy supply.
