    Keywords : pyrolysis; industrial symbiosis; circular economy; renewable energy; asphalt plant; environmental management; sustainable products; biochar;

    Abstract : The expectations on companies to introduce better business models to enhance environmental performance are increasing. Sweden is aiming at becoming climate neutral in 2045 which requires methods to capture and store carbon in addition to decrease emissions. Research has shown that biochar production can be one way to support the target. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fast Pyrolysis of Biomass in a Fluidized Bed for Production of Bio-oil and Upgradation by Ex-situ Catalytic Bed

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

    Author : Samina Gulshan; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Production of bio-oil from biomass is now becoming best substitute of fossil fuels in the transportation sector. Pyrolysis is one of the most promising route to produce bio-oil from biomass.  However, bio-oil needs to be upgraded due to presence of high percentage of oxygenated compounds. READ MORE

  3. 3. Catalytic Upgrading of Fast Pyrolysis Bio-oil Using Zeolites

    University essay from KTH/Kraft- och värmeteknologi

    Author : Elena Wikberg; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Fast pyrolysis bio-oil is considered as a possible source for production of liquid bio-fuels and bio-chemicals enabling the necessary transition to a renewable energy system. In this Master’s thesis work the upgrading of fast pyrolysis bio-oils with Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) conversion process at industrially relevant conditions is studied using Fluid Catalytic Cracking Micro Activity Test (FCC MAT) unit at RISE ETC in Piteå, Sweden.
