  1. 1. Chemical recycling of cotton-based waste textiles by sulfuric acid hydrolysis

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Edvin Ruuth; [2020]
    Keywords : recycling; hydrolysis; cotton; waste textiles; sulfuric acid; glucose; chemical engineering; kemiteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Large amounts of waste textiles are produced annually, of which only a small fraction is recycled currently. The purpose of this study was to develop a method to recycle cotton-based waste textiles chemically that can be coupled to the production of biofuels or green chemicals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Defining requirements of PET scrap for open loop recycling of post-industrial waste

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Josephine Digné; [2020]
    Keywords : Chemical Engineering; plastics; thermoplastics; PET; polyethylene terephthalate; foamed plastics; recycling; post-industrial waste; circular economy; återvinning; kemiteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : To reduce the environmental impact and minimize the exploitation of the depleting re-sources, the transition to a circular economy is vital. It proposes an economy of reduced ma-terial consumption and increased reuse and recycling of plastics and other materials. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Load following in a Swedish nuclear power plant

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Jacob Bjurenfalk; [2020]
    Keywords : chemical engineering; nuclear power; load following; process engineering; electricity production; APROS; Simulations; swedish power gird; kemiteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The energy system in Sweden is currently under a great transformation, where the part of weather dependent energy sources, so called intermittent sources, like solar and wind power will get greater share in the total production of electricity while the production from stable energy sources like nuclear power is decreasing. For a long time, the nuclear power have been operating at baseload and the hydropower as flexible, though, due to the change in the current power system, nuclear power plants may need to transit to flexible operation and apply load following.

  5. 5. Development of a Near Infrared Spectroscopy Model for Prediction of Fibre Compounds in Alfalfa

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi

    Author : Christina Andersen; [2020]
    Keywords : alfalfa; lucerne; medicago sativa; green protein powder; NIR; near infrared spectroscopy; model development; matlab; PLS; partial least squares; PCA; principal component analysis; SNV; standard normal variate; fibre prediction; TDF; total dietary fibre; applied microbiology; teknisk mikrobiologi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Background: This project investigates if it is possible to develop a calibration model from near infrared (NIR) spectroscopic measurements, for determination of the amount and type of fibre fractions within protein powder produced from the legume alfalfa, without performing wet experiments. Alfalfa is also known as Medicago sativa and lucerne, but is in this project further referred to as alfalfa. READ MORE
