  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. 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.

  4. 4. DEVELOPMENT OF RISK INFORMED METHODS FOR ESTIMATING RADIATION RELEASE FROM CABLE FIRES AT HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS FACILITIES

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Daniel Funk; [2020]
    Keywords : Fire Safety Engineering; CERN; Fire-induced Radiological release; particle accelerator; Fire Protection; Fire Risk Analysis; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : CERN operates the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator. The LHC was built to advance the state of knowledge in particle physics by increasing the energy of colliding particles to the TeV range. READ MORE

  5. 5. Recyclability by Design for Multilayer Plastic Flexible Packaging

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Förpackningslogistik

    Author : Sonika Singh; [2020]
    Keywords : Recyclability by design; multilayer flexible packaging; PE; PP; plastic recycling; circular plastic economy; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Various recyclability by design (RBD) guidelines for multilayer plastic flexible packaging (MPFP) were assessed for consistency among parameter values. 9% consistency was observed, which is on the lower end of devised consistency scale. READ MORE
