(2012-05-22)In the first part of this thesis, background material will be covered to motivate the research ideas being pursued in relation to electromechanical disturbance propagation, which is caused by an imbalance in power supply ...
Evaluation of anaerobic membrane bioreactors and hydrothermal catalytic gasification for enhanced conversion of organic wastes to renewable fuels (2014-01-16)Anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) systems, merging anaerobic digestion with membrane filtration technology, have been studied as an alternative wastewater treatment process that can effectively generate energy while ...
(2012-09-18)Microalgae are considered as suitable feedstocks for next-generation biofuel production because of their fast growth rates and prolific yields. Moreover, growing algae has less impact on land-use for food production compared ...
Metabolic engineering of Saccharomyces cerevisiae for efficient ethanol production from pentose sugars (2012-08-02)In recent years, an increasing desire to develop a feasible alternative to fossil fuels has led to an increased amount of attention in the area of bioconversion—particularly that of converting plant-derived lignocellulosic ...
(2012-02-06)Climate change awareness, the drive to sustainability and the push for energy independence have resulted in the wider utilization of renewable energy sources. Photovoltaic (PV) power is a renewable solar energy source that ...
