    • Cleaning of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) obtained from ferroalloys plant 

      Panjwani, Balram; Andersson, Stefan; Wittgens, Bernd; Olsen, Jan Erik (Chapter, 2017)
      Polycyclic Aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are organic compounds consisting of only hydrogen and aromatic carbon rings. PAHs are neutral, non-polar molecules that are produced due to incomplete combustion of organic matter. ...

      Panjwani, Balram; Andersson, Stefan; Wittgens, Bernd; Olsen, Jan Erik (SINTEF Proceedings;2, Chapter; Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Polycyclic Aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are organic compounds consisting of only hydrogen and aromatic carbon rings. PAHs are neutral, non-polar molecules that are produced due to incomplete combustion of organic matter. ...
    • Combined analytical strategies for chemical and physical characterization of tar from torrefaction of olive stone 

      Trubetskaya, Anna; Johnson, Robert; Monaghan, Rory F. D.; Ramos, Andrezza S.; Brunsvik, Anders; Wittgens, Bernd; Han, Yinglei; Pisano, Italo; Leahy, James J.; Budarin, Vitaliy L. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The advance in analytical methodology is critical for progress in 1) biorefinery and 2) torrefaction product commercialization. The chemical characterisation of torrefaction liquid and concentrated tar produced by Arigna ...
    • Combustion chamber scaling for energy recovery from furnace process gas: waste to value 

      Panjwani, Balram; Wittgens, Bernd; Olsen, Jan Erik (SINTEF proceedings;2387-4295, Chapter; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The dense discrete phase model (DDPM) is a promising method for detailed simulation of fluidized bed reactors. It can resolve particle clusters on much coarser grids than the conventional two fluid model (TFM) and allows ...
