  • Pyrolysis of biomass 

    Dawod, Ahmad (Master thesis, 2021)
    Pyrolysis of biomass is considered to be a green technology since it has no impacts or emissions to the environment. Pyrolysis of biomass is the initial stage in the gasification process and is defined as the thermal ...
  • Simulation of hydrogen tank refueling 

    Salcido Sanchez, Jose Luis (Master thesis, 2021)
    Several simulations of hydrogen filling process for a type IV tank were completed using openFOAM Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) open-source code. CFD codes have been proven to be a useful method for estimating temperature ...
  • Literature Review and Correlation of Density for Amines Relevant for CO2 Capture Process. 

    Baral, Pradeep (Master thesis, 2021)
    This work mainly deals with study of Carbon dioxide Capture Plants and solely focuses on density of different amines and their mixtures available limitedly in literature with reference to CO2 capture plants. Different ...
  • Experimental investigation of artificial snow production in marginal geographic conditions 

    Nordbø, Malene (Master thesis, 2021)
    Dette arbeidet hadde som mål å utføre både litteratur og eksperimentell studie av kunstig snøproduksjon i marginale geografiske forhold. Det viktigste bak dannelsen av kunstig snø er vann som eksponeres for kald luft danner ...
  • Reducing the CO2 emissions of a gas cracker by reforming fuel gas 

    Rustad, Emmy Kristine Lindeløff (Master thesis, 2021)
    With the rising need for CO2 reduction and the pressing two-degree target there is no doubt that measures must be made in the chemical process industry. Ethylene production by steam cracking is a mature and widespread ...
  • Simulation and cost estimation of CO2 capture processes using different solvents/blends 

    Orangi, Sina (Master thesis, 2021)
    There has been a growing trend toward removing CO2 emissions from the industry with different methods. One of the most mature methods for carbon capture is to absorb CO2 in an amine-based (MEA) post-combustion ...
  • Hydrodynamics - calculation of added mass on complex objects 

    Kaasa, Sondre (Master thesis, 2021)
    Added mass er et komplekst fenomen innen hydrodynamikk, hvor det finnes lite forståelse i industrien. Dermed var motivasjonen for dette arbeidet å bygge kunnskap innen hydrodynamikk og numerisk modellering av hydrodynamiske ...
  • Improved Oil Recovery through Advanced Control 

    Bhattarai, Ashish (Master thesis, 2021)
    Norway is one of the major suppliers of oil and gas to the world market. Revenues from sales of oil and gas have played an important role in building modern Norwegian society. Oil and gas are trapped in the subsurface ...
  • Process evaluation of novel CO2 capture processes for subsea application 

    Ommedal, Roy Sømme (Master thesis, 2021)
    With a subsea module for sweetening of natural gas, it is possible to extract natural gas from places with a too high concentration of CO2 is too remote or both. The separated gas containing a high amount of CO2 needs ...
  • Investigation of the performance of a pilotscale CO2 desorption column using CFD simulations 

    Shakeri, Avishan (Master thesis, 2021)
    Technology Center Mongstad (TCM) is the world’s largest and most flexible test facility for amine based CO2 absorption and desorption. This master thesis is based on an operational problem at TCM where excess liquid loading ...
  • Electrochemical Sulphide Oxidation - An Experimental Study 

    Muhidin, Hudda Samir Abukar (Master thesis, 2021)
    Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is a problem that occurs everywhere in the industries. This has hazardous properties like high corrosive, hazardous when inhaling and high flammability. The gas is either produced naturally or as a ...
  • Utilization of oxygen as partial replacement for air in cement kiln combustion processes 

    Bahri, Syaiful (Master thesis, 2021)
    This thesis is started with introduction, continued with model building and its simulation results, then ended with economic analysis. The idea of this study is to reduce the nitrogen content of the atmospheric air which ...
  • CFD-Simulations of inhomogeneous H2-air explosions 

    Aghaabbasi, Omid (Master thesis, 2021)
    Since demands for energy resources increase globally in recent years due to growth of application consumption, finding alternative resources for traditional fossil fuels raises. These current fuels are diminishing continuously ...
