Capacitive deionisation (CDI) is a desalination technology that removes ionic species from water through electrostatic attraction. Recently, a new CDI cell architecture has been developed with multiple channels and electrodes. Here, the ions are driven to migrate from channel to channel to desalinate the water. The inner electrodes of such a...

Inkjet printing is a technology that has been widely studied and implemented. The liquids that are used for inkjet printing can vary. There is the traditional ink which can be found in almost every household printer. But it is also possible to use inkjet printing to deposit drugs, proteins and nanoparticles on substrates. Inkjet printing has the...

For the first time, we present data on the actual growth rate, supersaturation, viscosity, and growth mechanism that lead to spherulitic growth. So far, fundamental questions regarding the growth conditions, mechanisms, and the necessity of a viscous growth medium have remained unresolved. Surprisingly, we observed a sol-gel transition in...

Fresh water is a scarce source. Demand for freshwater is greater than supply, due to the increasing industrialisation of countries and the low natural supply of freshwater sources such as rivers and lakes. Contamination of these natural freshwater sources by industrial wastewater adds to the freshwater deficit. Throughout history, technologies...

In an effort to make water electrolysis more efficient and simple, flow-through electrolyzers eliminate the need for a gas-separating membrane between the electrodes. However, replacing the membrane with a forced flow field brings new challenges and considerations. In this research, the design of a flow-through electrolyzer is optimized for...

In the effort against climate change the company ZEF has as its target to make methanol (CH3OH) out of atmospheric CO2; a process which can be seen as power-to-fuel and/or power-to-x. In light of the developmental cycle within ZEF a new reactor with an increased size and enhanced mass manufacturability is required. The...

The unprecedented rise in CO2 concentration in the atmosphere, and the accompanying rise in global temperature, has created the need for the development of environmentally friendly sources of energy. A very promising line of research focuses in the development of Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) technologies; through which carbon-neutral...

Prilling is the industrial process in which thin jets of a molten substance break up into drops and the subsequent solidification of the droplets into solids due to cooling when they fall down in the prilling tower. Prilling is widely used for efficient production of a variety of materials such as, e.g., fertilizer grains, laundry detergent, and...

Nitrogen emissions contribute significantly to climate change, especially in the Netherlands around Natura-2000 areas, and one of the main contributors is manure. However, not only does manure usually have high nitrogen emissions, a lot of it is in the form of ammonia, which in itself is very energy-intensive to create. Therefore MEZT developed...

The Dutch government program “ A circular economy in the Netherlands by 2050“ prioritizes the 100% recycling of plastics used in the country by 2050 to reduce the consumption of fossil resources and increase the value of the plastic waste, which is currently incinerated or exported in its majority [1]. This objective can be facilitated by...

This interdisciplinary thesis gives a simulational approach for the production of basic chemicals in a renewable manner, while simultaneously managing uncertainty inherent in the development of novel and innovative technologies. The simulational approach focuses on the capture of CO2 and subsequent conversion into methanol using Aspen Plus. CO2...

Water scarcity is an increasing problem around the world due to growing population and more frequent weather extremities. Desalination, the process in which salt water is converted into freshwater, is a sensible option to expand the drinking water supply by accessing the vast salt water resources on Earth. Capacitive deionization (CDI) is a...

The purpose of this study was to create a theoretical model for the distillation of synthetic crude oil (syncrude) into straight-run naphtha, kerosene and gas oil fractions, at a scale of 235 ktfeed/year. To that end, a process model was created that receives the output of a Co-LTFT process as raw feed. The raw feed was prefractionated to remove...

The dwindling of natural resources, mainly fossil fuels, and the alarming increase in the global average temperatures, are the biggest concerns of the engineering and scientific community of 21st century. Studies have found that known reserves of oil and natural gas will last another 50 years. Coal will last another 110 years, which points...

The global energy transition from a fossil fuel base energy system to a renewable energy source base system is the key mission for a low-carbon future. The target of CO<sub>2 </sub>emission reduction by 2050, following the Paris Climate Agreement, is 90% compared to the CO<sub>2</sub> level of 1990. Haber-Bosch process is the main industrial...

In the past decades, fossil fuels have become an increasing concern, due them being a non-renewable energy source and due to the environmental concerns related to the production and use of this fuel. This has led to increasingly more research in the value of bio-sourced lignocellulosic biomass such as Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) fibres from the palm...

To tackle the expected increase in fresh water shortage in the world, alternative water production methods are required. One such a possible method is Ocean Thermal Water Production (OTWP). This thesis continues on the innovative concept of the use of OTEC waste water as a cooling fluid for atmospheric water production introduced in previous...

Supercritical water gasification is a process in which wet biomass is converted to bio-syngas. In this process the temperature and pressure are raised above the critical point of water (374 C, 221 bar), creating a supercritical medium in which a high conversion and energetic efficiency of biomass to bio-syngas is realized. Due to these high...

The structuring of polymers on the micro and nanoscale is performed largely by lithographic techniques, which require complex steps and suffer from geometrical and scaling limits. Techniques such as Nanoimprint Lithography and Hot Embossing are attractive alternatives as they can produce high quality nanoscale structures with a high throughput....
