  1. 1. Carbon capture from reheating furnaces in the Swedish steel industry : evaluation of techno-economic feasibility

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Energivetenskap

    Author : Anna Haglund; [2020]
    Keywords : Carbon capture; CCS; Swedish steel indusrty; post-combustion;

    Abstract : The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is important to keep climate change under control. One of the largest CO2 emitters of the Swedish industries is the steel industry. This is, among others, due to the need of heat treatments and reheating processes depending on high temperatures and fossil fuels. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dimples in corrugated channels to improve efficiency in plate heat exchangers

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Gustav Karlsson; [2020]
    Keywords : Dimples; Plate Heat Exchangers; Heat Transfer Enhancement; CFD; Large Eddy Simulation; Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes Simulation; chemical engineering; kemiteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The development of new heat exchanger patterns is ever changing. Companies are constantly pushing innovation to satisfy costumer needs in terms of thermal efficiency, reliability and serviceability. In this thesis, the implementation of dimples in the corrugated pattern of a plate heat exchanger is investigated to increase the thermal efficiency. READ MORE

  3. 3. Governing the emerging sociotechnical imaginary of a climate-positive Sweden : an exploration of the political discussion on negative emissions technologies as a climate change solution

    University essay from Lunds universitet/LUCSUS

    Author : Kirstine Lund Christiansen; [2020]
    Keywords : sustainability science; bioenergy with carbon capture and storage; climate governance; carbon dioxide removal; climate recovery; elite interviews; polluter pays principle; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : In recent years, negative emissions technologies (NETs) have gained attention as a strategy to tackle climate change. While the academic debate on NETs has been heated, international and national governance frameworks for regulating and incentivising the technologies largely remain unseen. READ MORE

  4. 4. Virtual characterization of composite materials for aero-engine components

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Facundo Masari; [2020]
    Keywords : Composite; simulation; multiscale; modelling; UD; NCF; prepreg; aerospace; engine;

    Abstract : Since its beginnings, the aerospace industry has been interested in lowering the weight of aircraft. Moving from performance and economic drivers to environmental design parameters, the weight has continuously been a major focus for this industry. READ MORE

  5. 5. Investigation of carbon capture technologies for Sävenäs waste-to-energy plant

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Jasmine Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : CCS; flue gas treatment; waste incineration; energy balance; emission abatement;

    Abstract : Carbon capture technologies have the potential to decarbonize the emissions to air from the heat and power sector and contribute to the necessary greenhouse gas emission mitigation in order to meet the Paris Agreement requirements. The energy requirement and ability to retrofit carbon capture units are crucial to convert existing power plants into more environmental benign processes to meet the Swedish national goal of greenhouse gas neutrality at 2045.
