Sorption Enhanced DiMethyl Ether Synthesis (SEDMES) is a promising option to overcome thermodynamic limitations of conventional DME production processes. In this work a 2D+1D heterogeneous dynamic model of the reaction/adsorption step in a tube of an externally cooled multitubular fixed bed SEDMES reactor is developed in order to investigate the...

A large part of the population in many African countries lacks access to electricity, in contrast to the ambition of reaching universal energy access as expressed in the Sustainable Development Goals. Off-grid electricity technologies have been proposed as an important means to solve this challenge. It is uncertain, however, at what rate these...

The importance of spatial resolution for energy modelling has increased in the last years. Incorporating more spatial resolution in energy models presents wide benefits, but it is not straightforward, as it might compromise their computational performance. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive review of spatial resolution in energy models,...

To realise the targets of the Paris Climate Agreement, drastically greener modes of transport are needed. Smart mobility concepts, more efficient engines, battery electric vehicles and biofuels are often mentioned as applications. Electric vehicles can be considered the preferred solution for short distances and light vehicles (e.g. passenger...

Sorption enhanced dimethyl ether synthesis (SEDMES) is a novel DME production route from CO2-rich feedstocks. In situ water removal by adsorption results in high single-pass conversions, thereby circumventing the disadvantages of conventional routes, such as low carbon efficiency, energy intensive downstream separation and large recycling. The...

The direct synthesis of dimethyl ether (DME) from biomass-derived syngas is a topic of great interest in the field of biofuels. The process takes place in one reactor combining two catalytic functions, Cu/ZnO/Al2O3 (CZA) for the synthesis of methanol and an acid catalyst (typically g-Al2O3) for methanol dehydration to DME. However, the catalytic...

A techno-economic assessment on upgrading routes involving washing and torrefaction is presented for roadside grass, straw and miscanthus. Washing followed by torrefaction (prewash) and torrefaction followed by washing (postwash) is compared for straw. Mass and energy balances were calculated, based on previous experimental test results....

The most expensive non-silicon component of solar cells remain silver used for front contact. We propose a single step deposition of Cu/Ni metallization by screen printing method. It was achieved by coating the copper powder with a barrier layer mainly consisting of nickel, in a simple electroless process and then mixing it with a commercial...

The energy transition will profoundly change the energy infrastructure. The target is to decarbonize applications and processes currently supplied with fossil fuels: industry, power generation, households, agriculture and mobility. This must be done as quickly as possible, attaining full decarbonization by 2050. The speed of the energy...

Solar energy has the potential to play a central role in the future global energy system because of the scale of the solar resource, its predictability, and its ubiquitous nature. Global installed solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity exceeded 500 GW at the end of 2018, and an estimated additional 500 GW of PV capacity is projected to be installed by...

There is a genuine opportunity for the developing world and rural areas to leapfrog the conventional Western paradigm of power. Where conventional electricity delivery is reliant on expensive, polluting and centrally controlled generation (with its spider web of infrastructure and dependence on decades-old technologies), the developing world can...

The US’ shale gas revolution could in the long term destabilize traditional oil- and gas exporters in the European Union (EU) neighborhood: A combination of substitution effects and greater energy efficiency, could put pressure on the price of oil, leading to fiscal difficulties in traditional hydrocarbon exporting countries.

Solar cookers supply clean and sustainable energy for cooking and so limit the use of wood or charcoal. A new type of solar cooker is developed with a hot plate. The hot plate offers comfortable access to the food under preparation. The hot plate opens up the opportunity to generate small amounts of electricity with the help of a thermo electric...

Today's energy use, based on the conversion of fossil fuels, is not sustainable on the long term. Global warming, security of supply and local air quality are strong driving forces to change the present energy system. Given the huge global demand for energy, no single solution can be imagined to make this energy supply more efficient, less...
