    University essay from KTH/Energi och klimatstudier, ECS

    Author : Sebastiaan Nikolas Tsirakos; [2017]
    Keywords : GEM fuel; Biofuels; Sweden; Bioenergy; Methanol; 2nd generation Ethanol; Black Liquor Gasification; Gasoline‐Ethanol‐Methanol GEM ternary blend; Distribution Network Biofuels; E85 Flexible Fuel Vehicles; Forestry Residue Fermentation;

    Abstract : This paper discusses the potential of gasoline, ethanol and methanol ternary blend as an alternative passenger car fuel in Sweden. Sweden has set various targets aimed to reduce its GHG emissions and to increase the share of renewables in the transportation sector. READ MORE

  2. 12. Biofuel plantations and isoprene emissions in Svea and Götaland

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Zahra Khais Shahid; [2017]
    Keywords : Isoprene; Geographical Information Systems GIS ; Short Rotation Coppice SRC ; Nitrogen dioxide NO2 ; biofuels; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Bioenergy as an alternative source for energy production and transportation has gained attention to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels. Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) as dedicated energy crops for heat and energy production have many demonstrated and proved climatic, biodiversity and environmental benefits, but concerns regarding the occurred Land Cover Change (LCC) from agriculture land into SRC have been raised.

  4. 14. Hydrogen Assisted Lignin Depolymerization with Pulp Mill Catalysts

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Linnéa Kollberg; [2017]
    Keywords : Lignin; depolymerization; pulp mill catalysts; hydrogenolysis; base catalyzed depolymerization; Chemistry;

    Abstract : As part of the development of a process for production of a lignin-rich oil that can serve as a renewable feedstock to existing petroleum refineries, hydrogen assisted depolymerization of lignin in filtered black liquor has been investigated. This process offers the possibility to reduce fossil emissions from transportation by utilization of the largest renewable carbon resource in Sweden, namely the forest. READ MORE

  5. 15. Techno-economic assessment of switching to biofuels - the potential of replacing propane in two Swedish factories

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : CHRISTINA PAPAIOANNOU; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Potentialen för växling av en fossil gasol system för biobränslen undersöks i denna studie. Sju möjliga bränsleövergångsscenarier identifieras för två företag i Sverige. De tekniska aspekterna av de alternativa biobränslen, kapital och drift- och underhållskostnader och CO2-utsläpp i det gäller kostnader diskuteras i avhandlingen. READ MORE
