  1. 1. Xylan sorption kinetics at industrial conditions

    Author : Espen Ribe; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sorption; Yield; Sorption conditions; Kinetics; Kraft cooking; Hemicellulose; Modelling; Black liquor; Xylan;

    Abstract : The kraft process is the most utilised method for the production of wood based chemical pulp for paper applications. During a kraft cook about half of the wood material is dissoluted into the cooking liquor making the liberation of individual fibres possible. This low yield is a great disadvantage for process economy. READ MORE

    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bitumen; Cold Asphalt Mixtures; Minerals Aggregates; Surface Free Energy; Sorption; Contact Angle; Bitumen Emulsions; Breaking and Coalescence.; Bitumen; kallblandad asfaltmassa; mineraler aggregat; fri ytenergi; sorption; kontaktvinkel; bitumenemulsion; brytning och blandning.; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Cold mix asphalt (CMA) emulsion technology could become an attractive option for the road industry as it offers lower startup and equipment installation costs, energy consumption and environmental impact than traditional alternatives. The adhesion between bitumen and aggregates is influenced by diverse parameters, such as changes in surface free energies of the binder and aggregates or the presence of moisture or dust on the surface of aggregates, mixing temperatures, surface textures (including open porosity), nature of the minerals present and their surface chemical composition, as well as additives in the binder phase.

  3. 3. Transport and Sorption Phenomena in Concrete and Other Porous Media

    Author : Björn Johannesson; Göran Fagerlund; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Durability; Sorption; Capillary suction; Diffusion; Convection; Concrete; Byggnadsteknik; Mixture Theory; Building construction; Byggteknik; Civil engineering; Durability;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis is mainly focused on transport processes involved in service life predictions of concrete. Two papers and three reports deal with ion transport in pore solution of concrete. READ MORE

  4. 4. Chlorite: Geochemical properties, Dissolution kinetcis and Ni(II) sorption

    Author : Åsa Zazzi; Zoltan Szabo; Susanna Wold; Peter Vilks; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chlorite; dissolution kinetics; Ni II sorption; surface complexation; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : In Sweden, among other countries, a deep multi-barrier geological repository, KBS-3, is planned for the burial of nuclear waste. One of the barriers is identified as the grantic bedrock itself and in this environment chlorite is present at surfaces in fracture zones. READ MORE

  5. 5. Equilibrium and Kinetic Batch Studies of Cadmium and Lead sorption using Low Cost Biosorbents

    Author : Grace Bakyayita Kizito; Ann-Catrine Norrström; Robinah Kulabako; Mai Nalubega; Dan Berggren Kleja; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biosorbents; cadmium; chemisorption; isotherms; kinetics; lead;

    Abstract : Agricultural wastes; Albizia coriaria, Coffea canephora, Cyperus papyrus, Erythrina abyssinica and Musa spp were evaluated for uptake of aqueous Cd2+ and Pb2+ ions in single- and binary-component solutions. Untreated, base-treated and peroxide-treated biomasses were employed in batch studies. READ MORE
