  1. 1. IMPLEMENTATION OF OXYFUEL COMBUSTION IN A WASTE INCINERATION CHP PLANT : A Techno-Economic Assessment

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Author : Mostafa Saleh; Anton Hedén Sandberg; [2021]
    Keywords : CCS; Oxyfuel Combustion; Carbon Capture; Gas Separation Techniques; Waste Combustion; Cost Assessment of CCS; ASU; CPU; Wet-FGR; Dry-FGR;

    Abstract : Global energy demand is predicted to rise in the coming decades, necessitating a shift to renewable energy sources to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. However, due to the inability to supply renewable energy around the clock, it is estimated that only by adding an important technology, carbon capture and storage (CCS), it could be possible to reduce 80% of the 1990s greenhouse gas emissions.

  2. 2. How does hydropeaking and geological substrate affect aquatic macroinvertebrates in a regulated river?

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för miljö- och livsvetenskaper (from 2013)

    Author : Andreas Vernby; [2021]
    Keywords : Hydropeaking; geological substrate; aquatic macroinvertebrates; EPT species; Hester-Dendy samplers; Korttidsreglering; geologiskt substrat; akvatiska makroevertebrater; EPT; Hester-Dendy-provtagare;

    Abstract : Hydropower is an important source of renewable energy, but is often a cause of degradation to river ecosystems. Hydropeaking, i.e. the frequent alteration of discharge, is a process involved in hydropower generation and has been proven to affect aquatic organisms negatively. READ MORE

  3. 3. Validating results from the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment by use of turbulent CFD simulations : A study of a modified U-tube shell-and-tube primary heat exchanger and radiator with molten salts

    Abstract : Background Nuclear reactors utilizing molten fuels rather than solid fuels show a massive advantage in energy yield, waste handling and safety features. The only successful reactor utilizing a molten fuel was called the ‘Molten Salt Reactor Experiment’ (MSRE), built and operated in the Oak Ridge national laboratory (ORNL) in Tennessee, U.S.A.

  4. 4. Techno-economic feasibility for residential Local Energy Communities: Case study of Italy

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

    Author : Linda Colarullo; [2021]
    Keywords : Local Energy Community; Energy Sharing; Italy; Virtual Regulation Model; Distributed Renewable Energy Resources; Self-consumption maximization; Demand Side Management;

    Abstract : The use of renewable energy has proven to be essential for the decarbonisation of the energy system, bringing changes on both the production and consumption side, with an increase of renewable energy in the mix and a change in the role of consumers. From passive actors, Consumers are becoming Prosumers (producers and consumers) of self-generated energy, with the potential of becoming the pillar of the energy sector transition. READ MORE

  5. 5. Revenue Generation in Data-driven Healthcare : An exploratory study of how big data solutions can be integrated into the Swedish healthcare system

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Företagsekonomi; Umeå universitet/Företagsekonomi
