Purpose: This study evaluates the potential of biomass ash as raw clinker material and the influence of biomass feedstock and thermal conversion technology on biomass ash properties. Methods: A set of criteria for biomass feedstock and ash properties (i.e. CaO/SiO2 ratio and burnability) are established. A large dataset was collected and the...

Nowadays, nearly 50% of the hydrogen produced worldwide comes from Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) at an environmental burden of 10.tCO2,eq/tH2 accelerating the consequences of global warming. One way to produce clean hydrogen is via methane pyrolysis using melts of metals and salts. Compared to SMR, significant less CO2 is produced due to...

The maritime industry has set clear objectives towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the coming decades. Ship based carbon capture (SBCC) could play a large role in reducing these emissions on the short term. This study gives an update on the work that has been conducted towards carbon capture and storage on LNG fuelled vessels. This is...

Elemental Carbon (EC) is a good indicator for aerosol air quality and a main component in global warming; therefore data on its historic concentration would be highly valuable for an assessment of historic levels. There were already major sources of EC in Europe in the early 20th century, but the component has only been measured since the late...

Analysis of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) is widely used to quantify the sum of organic carbon species in water. Analyzers based on wet chemical oxidation (WCO) usually have a relatively low detection limit (±1 μg of C/L) and are, therefore, well suited for analyses of DOC in environmental samples (e.g., surface water, groundwater, or seawater)...

Salt hydrates are promising candidates for the long-term thermochemical heat storage (TCES) in thebuilding environment. In such storage systems, the surplus of energy will be exploited in an endothermicreaction to dehydrate the salt hydrates. Once it is demanded, the stored energy will be released throughan exothermic reaction by hydrating the...

The aim of this work was to evaluate the performance of three different supported amine sorbents in a 6-step vacuumswing adsorption (VSA) cycle through process simulation and optimization for a representative post-combustion CO2capture system. Detailed process optimization revealed that all the adsorbents were able to achieve the desired purity...

In the present work, the potential of polyPOSS-imide membranes designed for the purification of H2 from a coke gas (utilized in the steelmaking industry) is investigated. Aiming at upscaling the membrane fabrication, tubular single-channel and multi-channel membranes were prepared, using polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) nanostructures...

The potential impacts on gross domestic product, employment, and carbon emissions of implementing a circular economy have been modelled at the national and multiregional levels using multiple scenarios. However, there is still no consensus on the magnitude of the impacts of a transition to a circular economy and on whether it will generate a ...

Selective hydrogenations in the aqueous phase are an important transformation in the context of developing biorefinery concepts. In this report the application and optimisation of nitrogen-doped carbon (NDC) supported Pd nanoparticles as hydrogenation catalysts is discussed in the context of directing support (e.g. N) chemistry for improved...

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) except MWCNT-7 have been classified as Group 3 ["Not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans"] by the IARC. Despite considerable mechanistic evidence in vitro/in vivo, the classification highlights a general lack of data, especially among humans. In our previous study, we reported epigenetic changes in the MWCNT...

Electrons and holes confined in quantum dots define excellent building blocks for quantum emergence, simulation, and computation. Silicon and germanium are compatible with standard semiconductor manufacturing and contain stable isotopes with zero nuclear spin, thereby serving as excellent hosts for spins with long quantum coherence. Here, we...

The coastal aerosol represents a complex mixing between sea spray aerosols locally generated at the sea surface and a component generated by natural and/or anthropogenic sources on the nearby land. The aim of this paper is to study the atmospheric concentrations of carbonaceous compounds as measured in the coastal zone of the Northern Adriatic...

Particulate black carbon has a range of negative impacts on health, the environment and climate, however despite this there are relatively few long-term studies on its ambient distribution as a tropospheric air pollutant. In order to address this lack of data, to help to provide greater insight into the spatio-temporal distribution of...

Applying an integrated methodology, including petrography, Mercury Injection Capillary Pressure, laboratory Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and X‐ray Computed Tomography, on continental spring carbonate reservoir analogue samples is a prerequisite to understand plug scale porosity and permeability heterogeneities. Depending on the dominant pore type...

Potassium carbonate, K2CO3, has been identified as one of the most promising thermochemical storagematerials for the built environment. Where a lot of knowledge has been gained on hydration/dehydrationbehavior at atmospheric (open system) conditions, little is known of this process under pure water vaporconditions (closed vacuum system). In this...

Transport and logistics is one of the most important economic sectors contributing to the climate change. By the nature of transport and logistics operations, the sector is one of the most difficult ones to decarbonize. This paper proposes using carbon footprinting tools to optimize logistics operations with respect to emissions, and to setup...
