Yska, Stijn (author)
As global climate change concerns intensify, the search for renewable-based alternatives to products and processes that rely on fossil fuels becomes ever more important. A process that has been championed is the co-electrolysis of carbon dioxide and water, under the supply of renewable energy, via high-temperature solid oxide electrolyser...

Organic waste is the largest domestic waste category in the City of Buenos Aires (CABA) and is currently landfilled together with other waste streams. Landfilling organic waste not only has a large impact on the environment, but also leads to the loss of the value embedded in organic waste, such as nutrients and energy. In this regard, anaerobic...

Carbon capture and utilization (CCU) is an emerging technology for reducing the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere and to limit the negative effects on the global warming. Different from carbon capture and storage (CCS), in CCU the carbon captured from point sources or direct from air is processed to valuable carbon containing products. Several...

Recovering phosphorus from manure allows to cycle a valuable nutrient back to agriculture while offering farmers a way to comply with the increasingly restrictive legislation concerning livestock manure application on agricultural land. To this end, a novel biocrystallization process in an Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Bed (UASB) reactor has been...

The capture of carbon dioxide before or after it is emitted has been regarded as a crucial mitigation pathway to prevent the rapidly increasing accumulation of CO2 in the atmosphere. The valorisation of the captured CO2 into value added products such as methanol provides an additional economic incentive to continue developing these technologies....

This research provides insight into the implementation of CCS in industrial production from a consumer perspective (i.e., the cost impact on the final product). The impact of implementing CCS in two different industries (e.g., cement and steel) to produce a final product is analyzed. Also, this research provides insight into CCS implementation...

In the present study, a Model Predictive Control (MPC) - based, Energy Management Strategy (EMS) is proposed, aiming at the minimisation of the fuel consumption of vessels with hybrid propulsion and power supply. This approach is capable of utilising online information regarding realistic future predictions of the propulsive power demand,...

The Netherlands aims to accelerate the energy transition. Accordingly, ambitious targets have been set for the industrial sector. This will require additional investments in the Dutch industry which is expected to reduce the CO2 emissions at limited costs in comparison with other sectors. However, the ambition to reduce the emissions can create...

This thesis examines the production of an alternative liquid hydrocarbon fuel, namely CO2-methanol, produced utilising DAC, CO2 electrolysis, H2O electrolysis and thermo-catalytic synthesis. The reason for such research lies in a persistent growth in global energy demand, a significant share of which comes from liquid fuels, in the present...

Zero Emission Fuel (ZEF) has the goal to create affordable high-grade methanol, produced from absorbed carbon dioxide and water from the air. The methanol is produced in a solar methanol (MeOH) farm, consisting of 13225 micro-plants which are powered by PhotoVoltaicsolar panels (PV panels). The solar capacity of the solar MeOH farm is 12 MW and...

Reducing carbon emissions in the power generation sector can be done by generating energy from renewable sources such as wind and sun. However these sources alone cannot provide a reliable electricity system and therefore an energy storage system is needed. Power-to-gas is a concept in which surplus renewable electricity is used for the...

Uncertainty has an obstructing role in the decision-making of electrification investments for industrial actors. Future research by analysts is required to explore the potential of electrified industrial systems in their uncertain environments. In order to enable research to uncertainty in electrified industrial systems, the identification and...

In this thesis the goal is to determine the mitigation potential, below 100$ per ton of CO<sub>2</sub>e, of nine climate mitigation measures in 2030 for the G20 and world regions across six sectors. The mitigation potentials for these measures was determined using a bottom-up approach utilizing recent literature, and where needed by up-scaling...

Renewable energy is continuously increasing its penetration in the energy supply network around the world. Due to the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources like solar and wind, storage of excess energy during its availability is vital. Energy storage, especially on the large scale, has recently received a lot of attention from the...
