  1. 1. Carbon Capture from Biomass Boiler Flue Gas Emissions using Microalgae : A Case Study

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Graham Kirn; [2023]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Capture and storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) is expected to play an important role in climate change mitigation efforts intended to limit global warming to 1.5 °C. Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS), in which carbon is captured during energy generation from sustainably sourced biomass fuels, is of particular interest in Sweden. READ MORE

  2. 2. A geological investigation on bedrock suitability for mineral carbonation conducted in the south central part of Sweden

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Edvard Pearson; [2023]
    Keywords : Mineral carbonation; geological investigation; Åsensbruk; Falun; Grums; Öje; Skutskär;

    Abstract : Increasing global temperatures due to anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases is one of our times most dire and urgent challenges to overcome if we are to achieve a sustainable healthy planet. The primary way of accomplishing this is by reducing the amount of released greenhouse gases. READ MORE

  3. 3. The BECCS Doughnut: A strong sustainability framework for assessing implementation strategies for Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)

    University essay from Lunds universitet/LUCSUS

    Author : Domenik Tress; [2023]
    Keywords : sustainability assessment; bioenergy with carbon capture and storage; negative emissions; doughnut economics; sustainability science; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) is a largely promoted, but also heavily contested solution to the problem of climate change. Whilst removing carbon from the atmosphere, it potentially leads to detrimental side effects. READ MORE

  4. 4. Forest growth under future climate change in the context of bioenergy – case studies of combined heat and power plants in Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Chi Yuen Hui; [2023]
    Keywords : Physical Geography; Climate Change; Ecosystem Modelling; LPJ-GUESS; BECCS; Geomatics; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The pressure to achieve net-zero emissions has pushed for new technologies including carbon capture and storage (CCS) based on the combustion of biomass (BECCS). While bioenergy is a relatively mature industry in Sweden, the addition of CCS may increase the demand for local biomass. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evaluation of Excess Heat Driven Carbon Capture Integrated at a Swedish Pulp Mill

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Frida Nilsson; [2023]
    Keywords : CCS; BECCS; pulp and paper industry; pulp mill; excess heat; MEA; HPC; AMP; DMSO; chemical engineering; environmental engineering; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : As the atmospheric carbon dioxide keeps increasing, bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) is getting increased attention as a measure to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide. It is especially interesting in Sweden where the extensive paper and pulp industry constitutes point sources of biogenic carbon dioxide. READ MORE
