  1. 1. New Housing Developments: A Localisation Strategy considering Energy-Efficiency from an Urban Structure and Transport Perspective for the city of Falun

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Adeyemi Kazeem Ajayi; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : There are several considerations when planning new housing developments, and resultant problems require critical analysis. This thesis has focused on studying some part of the potential issues in the case of a project in the city of Falun. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Investigating potential proton conductors: Doping BaTiO3 and SrTiO3 with Fe and Al

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Strukturkemi

    Author : Julia Löfstrand; [2020]
    Keywords : Proton conductor; perovskite; solid state synthesis;

    Abstract : There are many interesting applications of proton conducting oxides, such as electrolytes in fuel cells, hydrogen sensors and catalytic membranes for hydrogenation or dehydrogenation of organic compounds. Previous work explored doping BaTiO3 with the Rare Earth Element (REE) Sc to introduce oxygen vacancies in the structure, making it a Proton Conductor (PC). READ MORE

  5. 5. Häst inom kommunal skötsel : en möjlig väg till hållbar stadsutveckling

    University essay from SLU/Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)

    Author : Julia Palmqvist; [2020]
    Keywords : municipal maintenance; sustainable urban development; arbetshäst;

    Abstract : Arbetets slutsats är att användning av häst inom kommunal skötsel är ett hållbart alternativ ur social, kulturell, ekologisk och ekonomisk hållbarhet. Miljöfrågor blir allt viktigare inom kommunal skötsel där det även finns utrymme för förbättring. READ MORE
