  1. 1. Superheater corrosion in biomass and waste fired boilers : Characterisation, causes and prevention of chlorine-induced corrosion

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Peter Viklund; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; high temperature corrosion; waste; biomass; superheater tubes; steel; alkali; chlorine; sulphur;

    Abstract : Biomass and waste fired boilers suffer severely from corrosion of critical components such as superheater tubes. In this work high temperature corrosion of superheater alloys, and methods to mitigate the problem, have been investigated by laboratory studies and controlled field exposures in commercial boilers.

  2. 2. Improving Model-Based Systems Analysis of Waste Management

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mattias Olofsson; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; material recycling; modelling; import; energy recovery; greenhouse gas emissions; export; systems analysis; scrap markets; waste prevention; waste management;

    Abstract : Model-based systems analysis is a tool to support decision-makers in the field of waste management. Of special concern in this thesis is the development of mathematical models for the analysis of the technological system. The aim of the models (here denoted WMS models) is to address whole waste management systems, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. High temperature corrosion during waste incineration characterisation, causes and prevention of chlorine-induced corrosion

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Peter Viklund; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; high temperature corrosion; waste incineration; superheater tubing; steel; alkali; chlorine; suphur; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi;

    Abstract : Waste-fired boilers suffer severely from corrosion of critical components such as superheater tubes. In this work the high temperature corrosion of candidate superheater alloys have been investigated by detailed laboratory studies and controlled field exposures in full-scale boilers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Supermarket food waste

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mattias Eriksson; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Food waste occurs along the entire food supply chain and gives rise to great financial losses and waste of natural resources. The retail stage of the supply chain contributes significant masses of waste. Causes of this waste need to be identified before potential waste reduction measures can be designed, tested and evaluated. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards sustainable solid waste management in Jordan

    University dissertation from Water Resources Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Mohammad Aljaradin; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Solid Waste Management; Public Participation; Recycling; Landfilling; Jordan;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English Jordan is a country with a rapidly growing economy, modernization and growing population. The rapid increase in volumes of solid wastes and a steady increase in the cost and logistical difficulties with the associated risk to human health is a source of concern. READ MORE
