    Abstract : Sweden has the goal of reaching a fossil independent transportation sector by 2030. Two ways to reach the goal is to increase the use of electric vehicles or produce more biofuels. Both alternatives could be powered by forest residue, which is an underutilized resource in the country. READ MORE

  3. 3. Comparison study of various current and potential liquid biofuels in road freight transport : Application on a case study on Transport Centralen in Halmstad

    University essay from Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för ekonomi, teknik och naturvetenskap

    Author : Ansu Alex; [2017]
    Keywords : Liquid biofuels; Heavy transports;

    Abstract : The role of liquid biofuels in transportation to minimize the effects of climate change is  evident and has led to a number of studies on finding effective solutions to replace fossil fuels. Liquid biofuels are especially important for heavy duty transports as the effective ‘green’ alternatives are not as many compared to light duty vehicles; for which for e. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effect of Biofuel Impurities on the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst
