The effort to reduce global anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions has caused a growing interest in the use of sustainable energy sources. One of the potentially sustainable energy sources considered as an alternative for the currently used fossil sources is biomass. Biomass is organic matter that originates from plants or animals which can be...

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 transition from a fossil based economy to a greener, bio-based economy remains challenged by the gap in technological maturity between bio-based processes and conventional fossil energy. Decreasing the price difference between fossil fuels and bio-fuels remains a major constraint. With 98% of the transportation sector now depending on fossil...

Wastewater production has been steadily increasing globally. Treatment of wastewater and the resulting sludge is crucial for human health and ecosystem conservation. Furthermore, water supply and treatment is an energy intensive sector where the electricity consumption is projected to increase by more than 80% in the next 25 years.<br/><br/...

Biomass as a renewable energy resource and a carbon neutral feedstock has a big potential to replace fossil fuel. Gasification as one of thermochemical process routes in biomass utilization draws attention with regards to its broad product range. The circulating fluidized bed with the advantages of higher and rapid conversion performs as the...

This master thesis describes the process behind the development of a mass producible micro gasification cookstove. The context in which this project was executed in was Vietnam. Starting with an extensive analysis on Vietnamese cooking traditions, different cookstoves in the market and gasifiers that are already being produced worldwide. It is...

Public version. This version is only limited to the summary. Supercritical water gasification (SCWG) is a novel process for the thermochemical conversion of wet organic waste to gas and minerals. It is an alternative to the anaerobic digestion process, dewatering followed by drying and incineration and conventional dry gasification. Its...

The Master Thesis presents the design of a cook stove that uses biomass such as rice husk to cook. This cook stoves called gasifiers are an alternative to fossil fuel cook stoves in rural areas since the smoke generated by fossil fuels stove comprises a variety of health-damaging pollutants. The gasifier presented in this report was designed...

Around 2.6 billion people in the world do not have access to proper sanitation solutions, leading to many social, economical and health related problems. This report elaborates on “Clean Alliance” a product-service-system based in the provision of adaptable toilet booth availability supported by a waste processing Mini Multi Product Plant (MMPP)...

Vietnam’s economy is largely agricultural, with rice being the most cultivated crop. Apart from the rice itself, being the most important food source in Asia, the production also creates a great amount of waste. Currently, this ‘waste’ is simply burned on-site since that is the easiest solution for the farmers to get rid of it. However, the low...
