  1. 1. Caldicellulosiruptor Saccharolyticus: an Ideal Hydrogen Producer?

    Author : Sudhanshu Pawar; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : Caldicellulosiruptor owensensis; Caldicellulosiruptor saccharolyticus; hydrogen; volumetric hydrogen productivity; biofilm; osmotolerance; wheat straw hydrolysate; evolutionary engineering; CSTR; UA reactor and uracil auxotrophy;

    Abstract : Caldicellulosiruptor saccharolyticus is an extremely thermophilic, strictly anaerobic, Gram-positive and cellulolytic microorganism with a natural ability to produce hydrogen (H2) at nearly theoretical maximum yield, i.e. 4 mol/ mol of glucose. READ MORE

  2. 2. Appraisal of strategies to improve thermophilic hydrogen production exploiting Caldicellulosiruptor species

    Author : Eoin Byrne; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Caldicellulosiruptor; Hydrogen; osmotolerance; Biorefinery; Osmolarity; Adaptive laboratory evolution; Co-culture; Volumetric productivity; Methane; Polyhydroxybutyrate; Coprothermobacter proteolyticus;

    Abstract : The transition from a fossil to a bio-based economy is of vital importance to stem the effects of ongoing climate change.This bio-based economy will necessitate the production of both biofuels and chemical compounds from biologicalsources. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring strategies to improve volumetric hydrogen productivities of Caldicellulosiruptor species

    Author : Thitiwut Vongkampang; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Caldicellulosiruptor kronotskyensis; volumetric hydrogen productivity; non-diauxic; acrylic fibres; cell immobilization; chitosan; biofilm; c-di-GMP; cellobiose; xylose; consolidated bioprocessing; heat-treated wheat straw;

    Abstract : Ongoing consumption of fossil-based fuels generates a massive amount of greenhouse gases. This may lead to global warming that is currently threatening human society and wild animal habitats. Hydrogen is an energy carrier with the highest energy content per weight compared to other all fuels and no carbon dioxide is released when combusted. READ MORE

  4. 4. Physiology of Caldicellulosiruptor saccharolyticus: a hydrogen cell factory

    Author : Karin Willquist; Teknisk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; growth activation; hydrogen tolerance; hydrogen yields CO2 inhibition; physiology; enzyme kinetics; Caldicellulosiruptor saccharolyticus; biohydrogen; energy metabolism;

    Abstract : A high substrate conversion efficiency is a prerequisite for an economically feasible biohydrogen production. Caldicellulosiruptor saccharolyticus is a strictly anaerobic extreme thermophilic bacterium that is able to convert the theoretical maximum of 4 mol/mol glucose to H2. READ MORE

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

    Author : Lugano Wilson; Weihong Yang; Wlodzimierz Blasiak; Truls Liliedahl; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tanzania; Tropical Biomass Energy; High Temperature Gasification HTAG ; Mechanical energy engineering; 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.
