Electrolyzers for CO2 reduction can be used to synthesize renewable fuels, as a route to replace fossil fuels in our everyday economy with the purpose of minimizing the effects of climate change. For a high-scale implementation of electrolyzers, high operation current densities and low overpotentials are essential. Currently available options do...

Capturing CO2 directly from the air has gained wide attention as it is one of the possible solutions to mitigate the risks of climate change. Zero Emission Fuels (ZEF) is a start-up in Delft that develops a small-scale plant to produce methanol from sunlight and air only. CO2 and H2O are captured from the air by a direct air capture unit that...

The TU Delft (strategic framework 2018-2024) aims to have a CO2 neutral and circular campus that departs from the linear economy to closed material cycles by 2030, meaning that the campus becomes climate neutral. Currently, the TU Delft is accountable for 47.957 tCO2-eq emissions, uses 166.038 MWh of energy for electricity and heat , and is for...

To support Van Oord’s path towards a low-emission future fleet, this thesis has focused on the technical, environmental and economic impact of a methanol hybrid power plant design for new-build offshore working vessels (OWVs). These Dynamic-Positioning (DP) vessels are known for their large and dynamic power plants and have to limit their NOx...

Traditionally, ships are powered by fossil fuels in combustion engines, causing 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Alternative installations have yet to prove their reliability and are currently not as cheap or technological ready. <br/>To enable ship-owners to prepare their ship for the future, but postpone their decision on which...

During the production of steel, a dust waste stream is created that contains a significant amount of zinc which makes it difficult to treat and to recycle. Various furnaces have been developed that can deal with those dusts like rotary hearth furnaces and the DK process but none are fully optimal yet. HIsarna, a furnace in development by Tata...

Heavy dependence on fossil fuels has caused an astonishing growth in atmospheric CO2 levels for the past decades. The increase of anthropogenic CO2 emissions accelerates global warming and sea-level rising, which could lead to irreversible environmental damages. Electrochemically converting CO2 to value-added fuels is a promising approach to...

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...

The maritime industry faces more and more restrictions on the amounts of greenhouse gases, and particularly CO2 which the IMO allows to be emitted by ships. Carbon capture technology promises to be able to significantly reduce the CO2 emissions on ships and is most compatiblewith LNG powered vessels by filtering the CO2 from the exhaust gases....

Fossil fuels have been the primary source of rising energy requirements for humankind. However, the extensive use of fossil fuels has led to an increase in Earth's surface temperature. To tackle rising energy demands and the increase in Earth's surface temperature, various organizations like Inter-governmental Panel for Climate Change and the...

Decarbonization of the energy sector by switching to low-carbon renewables is inevitable for a sustainable future. However, the intermittent and variable nature of low-carbon renewables, like wind and solar, poses several challenges when integrated into the existing energy grids. This is one of the main factors slowing down the transition to a...

Global warming is one of the most significant concerns for human beings today in the 21st century. Under this circumstance, countries and regions around the world are taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. China, as the world's largest emitter, plays an important role in reducing carbon emissions worldwide. This paper aims to find the...

The province of South Holland is a key player in the global food economy. However, its agrifood sector is currently generating unwanted outputs. CO<sub>2 </sub>emissions are the largest and most problematic output flow of this sector, causing negative externalities such as climate change and sea-level rise. Actors producing the CO<sub>2</sub>...

Rapid industrialization and use of carbon based fuels has caused a drastic increase in the atmospheric CO<sub>2</sub> levels in the last few decades. The rising anthropogenic CO<sub>2</sub> levels pose a significant threat to the environment as evidenced by the increase in the mean global temperature levels, and the rising ocean levels. To...

It is widely known that climate change will cause sea level rise and larger river discharges in the close future (because more precipitation during a shorter amount of time will happen). In the Netherlands, the delta works were developed to protect the hinterland from sea-water during storm surge situations. The storm surge...

Martian mesospheric CO2 ice clouds are formed out of the main constituent of the Martian atmosphere: CO2 gas. The nature of these clouds is poorly understood, characterization of these clouds in terms of particle morphology would give valuable insight into the Martian climate. So far, these CO2 clouds have only been detected from space. In this...
