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 lower CO2 emissions, policy makers want to integrate as much variable renewable energy (VRE) as possible into power systems. This has been translated into targets for VRE as a share of total electricity generation and policies that aim to maximize the use of electricity available from VRE sources. However, in this paper we demonstrate that it...

The synthesis of methanol from biomass-derived syngas can be challenging because of the high CO2 content in the bio-syngas, resulting in lower kinetics and higher catalyst deactivation. This work explores the in situ pre-treatment of a CO2-rich syngas with a CO2/CO ratio equal to 1.9 through the reverse-water gas shift reaction with the aim of...

Schaarste aan grondstoffen kan ervoor zorgen dat we in de toekomst niet genoeg groene waterstof kunnen produceren om ambities waar te maken. En het kan zelfs de hele energietransitie hinderen. Weinig mensen zijn zich bewust van dit probleem. Tegelijk is het ook de vraag wiens probleem die schaarste eigenlijk is.

Energy poverty is receiving increased attention in developed countries like the Netherlands. Although it only affects a relatively small share of the population, it constitutes a stern challenge that is hard to quantify and monitor, hence difficult to effectively tackle through adequate policy measures. In this paper we introduce a framework to...

Dit cahier schetst een veelzijdig portret van onze zon, en van de sterke mate waarin wij aardbewoners afhankelijk zijn van deze middle-of-the-roadster in een buitenwijk van het Melkwegstelsel. Het zijn de ‘gelaatstrekken’ waarvan we ons doorgaans niet zo bewust zijn – zelf ervaar ik de zon meestal ook gewoon als die aangename warmtebrengende...

The Paris Agreement and other national climate agreements require quick actions and open opportunities in the search for smart synergies between existing and new energy systems. Having a strong offshore oil and gas sector and large ambitions in offshore renewables in several North Sea countries, there is a huge potential for creating value from...

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...

We reviewed the literature focusing on nineteen integrated Energy System Models (ESMs) to: (i) identify the capabilities and shortcomings of current ESMs to analyze adequately the transition towards a low-carbon energy system; (ii) assess the performance of the selected models by means of the derived criteria, and (iii) discuss some potential...

The use of geothermal energy in Europe is expected to grow rapidly over the next decades, since this energy resource is generally abundant, ubiquitous, versatile, low-carbon, and non-intermittent. We have expanded and adapted the integrated assessment model TIAM-ECN to more adequately reflect geothermal energy potentials and to better represent...

To lower pollution, it became imperative to integrate as much renewable energies as possible in power systems. This has been translated into forcing the maximum production of variable renewable energy (VRE) ---wind and solar--- into power systems operation. The increasing operational costs to maximize the VRE output became the price to pay in...
