Production of Renewable Diesel from Lignocellulosic biomass through Fast pyrolysis and Hydroprocessing TechnologyDownload
Increasing environmental concerns, global warming, and greenhouse gas emissions due to fossil fuel use point to an urgent need for clean renewable energy sources that can replace petroleum-derived fuels. Lignocellulosic biomass, a renewable resource, can be converted to bio-oil by fast pyrolysis...
The overall objective of this study is to develop techno-economic models for the assessment of power generation cost and optimum power plant size using forest residues as feedstock in Alberta. At the optimum size of the plant, the cost of generation of power is minimum. In this research two...
This study experimentally evaluated wheat straw slurry pipelines. Tests were conducted to determine the particle properties of the biomass mixed in water over time. The saturated particle density of 1,060kg/m3 was reached after 24 hours, while the saturated moisture contents of 78.5% and 79.5%...
Life cycle environmental and techno-economic assessments of monocrystalline titanium dioxide nanorod-based perovskite solar cellsDownload
There is an increased interest in utilization of solar energy for power generation. A lot of research effort is being put to improve the efficiency of solar cells. Perovskite architectures that use titanium dioxide nanorods as electron transport layers have been proven to have enhanced...
The important role of a heat storage system in the transition to a low carbon economy is widely acknowledged in scientific literature. In cold regions like Canada, where fossil-based space heating systems are widely used, the associated greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) are a major concern. The use...
Global energy demand is expected to grow substantially and will lead to increased production of crude oil from various sources. The production of crude oil and it’s conversion to transportation fuels result in the release of greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere. As one of the highest...
Life Cycle Assessment of Lignocellulosic Biomass Conversion Pathways to Hydrogenation Derived Renewable DieselDownload
Renewable fuels standards introduced in various jurisdictions aim at increasing the use of biofuels. There has been limited work on the life cycle assessment of the production of HDRD in terms of overall environmental impacts. This study is focused on conducting an LCA on the production of...
This study has investigated the life cycle of three biomass feedstocks including forest residue, agricultural residue, and whole forest for biohydrogen and biopower production in Alberta. Three technologies are studied for biohydrogen production; these include the Battelle Columbus Laboratory...
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Oil Sands-Derived Transportation Fuels Produced from the Vapor Solvent-Based Extraction ProcessDownload
Oil sand is a mixture of sand, clay, water, bitumen and other minerals. Production of transportation fuels like gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, etc. from the oil sands reserved in deep underground reservoirs require external stimulant to lower the viscosity of bitumen. The established thermal...
Rapid population growth and booming urbanization play an active role in world fuel demand. Today, primary fuel resources like coal and petroleum fulfill most of the energy supply and are the leading contributors to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Biomass-based fuel technology can play a crucial...
