The goal of this research is to be used as a framework for adding energy storage to aid in the connection of decentralized renewable energy generation in areas with limited connection availability to the electricity grid. The dependence on fossil fuels is reduced with the aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In the Netherlands this means that...

Electrochemical reduction of the \ce{CO2} into the chemically valuable \ce{CO} at an industrial scale is a promising way to reverse the worrying rise of \ce{CO2} levels in the atmosphere. Profitable operation at an industrial scale requires high CO partial current densities, producing a CO-rich output, while keeping the energy consumption and...

Increasing tensions over global warming, talks about a sustainable future and a huge imbalance in closure of the carbon cycle indicate a response for developing efficient conversion of CO2 and syngas obtained from renewable sources. Thermochemical conversion of carbon oxides (CO and CO2) in combination with hydrogen to produce methanol in the...

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...

Since the birth of industrial steelmaking in the Netherlands in 1918, the blast furnace production process has been used and is now capable of producing almost 7 million tonnes of crude steel annually. This level of steel production has brought significant employment and economic growth to the Netherlands, but has come at a cost to the...

Pyrolysis oil (BPO), derived from biomass via the fast pyrolysis process is a potential substitute for petroleum fuels. Due to its distinct physical and chemical properties (highly oxygenated, chemically reactive), the possible range of stable and clean operation in combustion devices is smaller than for petroleum fuel and to enable use of...

Vapor-liquid phase equilibrium (flash) calculations largely contribute to the total computation time of many process simulation models. As a result, process simulations, especially dynamic cases, are limited in the amount of detail that can be included due to time restrictions. In addition, under certain conditions flash calculations can fail to...

Developments in the field of renewable energy technologies have lead to low energy cost in areas with specific characteristics. In the Middle East solar power plants are built for prices around 3 cent per kilowatt-hour and bids below 3 cent have been placed. In Europe wind energy is the second largest source of renewable energy after biomass....

Limiting global temperature increase by 1.5 ̊C rather than 2 ̊C reduces the impacts of climate change significantly (Knutti et al., 2015; Schleussner et al., 2016). It requires a rigorous transition of the global energy system in a very short time span. Though, the published energy scenarios that focus on 1.5 ̊C are limited (Peters, 2016). In...

Supercritical water gasification (SCWG) is a thermochemical conversion process in which wet biomass is converted into gaseous products as methane, carbon dioxide and hydrogen. For SCWG both the temperature and pressure of the medium are increased beyond the critical point of water (373.95⁰C and 220.64 bar). The supercritical water acts as an...
