Återanvändning av matavfall för att konstruera svampmembran och filter för vatten- och luftrening

Filter och membran är halvgenomsläppliga barriärer, som ofta produceras från fossilbaserade polymerer och används för luft- och vattenrening. Membranfiltreringsanläggningar drabbas av omfattande membranbeläggningar, vilket kräver frekvent membranbyte. Detta medför en stor mängd plastavfall. Å andra sidan, har coronapandemin lett till en dramatisk ökning engångsmasker och flera miljarder masker slängs varje dag. Miljövänliga alternativ krävs för […]

Mass transport in wood components from processed woods(III-3)

Purpose of the project is to study mass transport of ionic liquids into wood pieces and fibers and consequent lignin and hemicellulose transport out from the pieces. Therefore, characterisation techniques to investigate the location of ionic liquids and lignin in the fiber structure are needed to be developed. Examples of such techniques are X-ray imaging,

Atomistic understanding of biomass interaction with hydrotreating catalysts 

The development of catalysts to upgrade renewable feedstocks is vital for a sustainable future. Alternative feedstocks typically differ in chemical composition compared to fossil-based feedstocks and to further develop catalytic materials that enable efficient and environmentally friendly chemical processes, it is necessary to understand the functional mechanisms of these materials in detail.The high oxygen content

Molecular Basis of the Interactions and Recalcitrance of Lignocellulosic Biomass

Lignocellulosic biomass represents the main renewable resource from the biosphere for the production of biofuels, platform chemicals and bio-based materials. Lignocellulose consists of a complex polymeric network of cellulose microfibrils embedded in a matrix of hemicelluloses, pectins, and lignins with exquisite organization from the nano- to the microscale. However, the heterogeneity of the lignocellulose polymeric
