The global temperature rise has pushed governments more into finding ways to reduce CO2 emissions, by increasing the use of renewable fuels. Lignocellulosic biomass (wood, forest residues, agricultural residues) is a renewable fuel that has still not been utilized to its full potential. That is because it lacks properties such as homogeneity,...

Interest in biogas has increased due to natural gas shortages and the energy transition. Most digesters in the EU have internal heating for process stability. Unheated reactors could potentially lower costs, but have decreased kinetics due to low operational temperatures, especially in winter. This raises the question how seasonal temperature...

Palm oil is a popular ingredient in domestic products. The palm oil industry has been growing rapidly over the past decades, so that the amount of palm oil mill effluent (POME) generated from the palm oil production has been increasing as well. The anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) is a treatment solution that can remove organic pollutants...

Oceanic CO2 capture technology can be used as a negative emission technology, or pre-treatment to reduce inorganic fouling (i.e., scaling) potential when further processing seawater. In this work CO2 from (synthetic) seawater was captured electrochemically via bipolar membrane electrodialysis. Although previous studies showed promising results...

Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) is an attractive medium for biogas production in an anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) because of its high lipid content. Long-chain fatty acid (LCFA) accumulation is toxic and considered harmful for the biological performance within the reactor as they can be absorbed by biomass particles causing sludge...

With increasing pressure on natural water resources, wastewater is gradually being considered as a potential source for potable water. Current WWTPs are designed for the removal of parameters like solids, nutrients, organic matter, and pathogens. For achieving a high-quality effluent, that enables reuse, it is important to also address the...

This thesis constitutes a part of the "IMPRESS" project which is aiming at the production of bio-plastics by utilizing hemicellulosic hydrolysates. The hydrolysate stream, after following the steps of acid hydrolysis and neutralization, consists of monosaccharides (C5/C6 sugars), salt and sugar degradation products. The C5/C6 sugars need to be...

Palm oil mill effluent (POME) is a high organic pollution produced during the palm oil mill process, with a brownish color and stingy odor at high temperatures. Given the popularity in palm oil output over the years, the massive amount of POME causes growing concern. The enforcement of wastewater discharge standards and laws, as well as energy...

In palm oil extraction process, a large amount of lipids are emulsified in waste stream and the hot, brownish palm oil mill effluent (POME) is generated. In this study, the membrane technology was proposed to test the feasibility of direct ultrafiltration (UF) of POME by using a-Al2O3 and PVDF membranes, and to figure out the recovery rates of...

Ceramic nanofiltration (NF) is a newly developed technology for municipal sewage reclamation for drinking water production, agricultural and industrial utilisation, but organic fouling limits it to pilot-scale application. Herein, Fenton-based cleaning catalysed by FeOCl pre-coat was performed on ceramic NF membrane to clean persistent gel-like...
