  1. 1. Mechanism of Formation of Soft Particles in Biodiesel Fuel Blends

    University essay from KTH/Materialvetenskap

    Author : Roberta Maria Fiorenza; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The large environmental impact related to the use of fossil fuel has driven the shift toward renewable sourced alternatives. Fossil diesel can be nowadays replaced by biodiesel, obtained from vegetable oils and fats, mostly used as biodiesel blends. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of a Method to Prepare a Test Fluid with Soft Particles in Biodiesel Fuel Blends

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Vishal Jadwani; [2020]
    Keywords : Biodiesel; Heavy-Duty Trucks; Soft Particles; Fuel mixtures; Biodiesel; Tunga lastbilar; Mjuka partiklar; Bränsleblandningar;

    Abstract : Bilindustrin är en av de största bidragsgivarna till koldioxidutsläpp genom fordonsutsläppnär de används. För att göra transportsektorn mer hållbar EU-politik dikterar att inkludera enhögre andel förnybara energikällor i den totala energiförbrukningen och ett sätt att uppnå det äratt införliva biobränslen i de traditionella fossila bränslena.

  3. 3. Microwave Heat Treatment of Black Liquor for the Degradation of Hemicellulose

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Maja Rydgård; [2020]
    Keywords : lignin; biofuel; black liquor; heat treatment; microwave heating; chemical engineering; kemiteknik; Technology and Engineering; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The largest use of fossil petroleum is the production of fuels. Hence, finding sustainable alter-natives is an important step to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases. One such alternative is to produce fuel from biomass, such as waste products from agriculture and the forest indus-try. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluating Sugar Signaling during Xylose Oxidation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi

    Author : Viktor Persson; [2020]
    Keywords : Saccharomyces cerevisiae; yeast; xylose oxidation; sugar signaling; biosensor; applied microbiology; teknisk mikrobiologi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The sugar signaling state of cells oxidizing xylose was investigated through the chromosomal integration of the Weimberg pathway into previously established biosensor strains capable of monitoring the Snf3p/Rgt2p, SNF1/Mig1p, and cAMP/PKA pathways through the expression of HXT1, SUC2, and TPS1, respectively. Ultimately, two new strains were successfully developed containing both the Weimberg pathway and a biosensor for either HXT1 (TMB CB 112) or TPS1 (TMB CB 117). READ MORE

  5. 5. Sustainable transportation and mapping of logistics activities - With the goal of having fossil-free transportation by 2030

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk logistik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för teknisk ekonomi och logistik

    Author : Therese Lantto; Bengisu Özer; [2020]
    Keywords : Logistics map; transportation; sustainability; fossil-free; food manufacturing; carbon emissions; biofuels; electric vehicles; KPIs; roadmap; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Today’s supply chains have become more global than ever before, which has brought out an enormous increase in environmental damage such as CO2 emissions. In an initiative to become more environmentally friendly, Swedish Food Federation has launched a joint sustainability manifest. READ MORE
