  1. 1. Deactivation of SCR catalysts - Impact of sulfur and the use of biofuels

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Johanna Englund; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cu-SSZ-13; Cu-CHA; Catalyst deactivation; Activity test; DeNOx; Sulfur; NOx reduction; NH3-SCR; FAME; Emission control; HVO; Vanadia; Biofuel;

    Abstract : In a near future, limits on CO2 emissions from vehicles will be introduced, which requires development of more fuel-efficient engines and most likely a transition towards the use of more biofuels. With the implementation of biofuels several issues could arise, one being the lack of fuel standards for these new type of fuels, leading to higher concentrations of catalyst poisons compared to conventional fossil fuels.

  3. 3. Deactivation of cobalt and nickel catalysts in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis and methanation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : US-AB

    Author : Javier Barrientos; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cobalt; nickel; Fischer-Tropsch synthesis; methanation; deactivation; carbonyl; sintering; carbon fomation. sulfur; poisoning; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract :             A potential route for converting different carbon sources (coal, natural gas and biomass) into synthetic fuels is the transformation of these raw materials into synthesis gas (CO and H2), followed by a catalytic step which converts this gas into the desired fuels. The present thesis has focused on two catalytic steps: Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS) and methanation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Applications for Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ivan Rexed; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell MCFC ; poisoning; electrolyte degradation; SO2; Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy EIS ; CO2 separation; button cell set-up; reversible molten carbonate fuel cell; high temperature electrolysis.; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Molten Carbonate Fuel cells are high temperature fuel cells suitable for distributed generation and combined heat and power, and are today being installed on commercial basis in sizes from 100kW to several MW. Novel applications for MCFC which have attracted interest lately are MCFC used for CO2 separation from combustion flue gas, and high temperature electrolysis with reversible fuel cells. READ MORE

  5. 5. RhPt and Ni based catalysts for fuel reforming in energy conversion

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Angélica Viviana González Arcos; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; RhPt bimetallic catalysts; Ni catalysts; ceria-zirconia; potassium tungsten bronze; zirconium dioxide; autothermal reforming; biodiesel; diesel; sulfur; deactivation; tar reforming; steam reforming; biomass gasification; auxiliary power units; naphthalene; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Although current trends in global warming are of great concern, energy demand is still increasing, resulting in increasing pollutant emissions. To address this issue, we need reliable renewable energy sources, lowered pollutant emissions, and efficient and profitable processes for energy conversion. READ MORE
