Iterative lumping approach for representing lipid feedstocks in fatty acid distillation simulation and optimization Ghent University
The complexity of lipid feedstocks and the lack of data on physical properties hinder the simulation of oleochemical processing units. In this work, an iterative lumping approach is proposed to define an adequate number of key compounds such that diversification between lipid feedstocks becomes possible, while keeping the determination of physical properties as required for process modeling manageable. As a case study, the iterative lumping ...

Non-household end-use plastics : the U+2018forgottenU+2019 plastics for the circular economy Ghent University
It is commonly agreed in the current legislative and scientific discourse that plastics recycling rates should be increased.Many recycling studies are dedicated towards this, but often they focus on post-household plastic waste. Non-householdend-use plastics seems to be forgotten in data gathering, policy making and research, but have promising potential for high quality recycling. In this manuscript we bring together the most recent existing ...
Life cycle assessment of lithium-ion batteries and vanadium redox flow batteries-based renewable energy storage systems Ghent University
Renewable energy has become an important alternative to fossil energy, as it is associated with lower greenhousegas emissions. However, the intermittent characteristic of renewables urges for energy storage systems, whichplay an important role in matching the supply and demand of renewable-based electricity. The life cycle of thesestorage systems results in environmental burdens, which are investigated in this study, focusing on lithium-ionand ...

Bond additivity corrections for CBSU+2010QB3 calculated standard enthalpies of formation of H, C, O, N, and S containing species Ghent University
A prerequisite for the generation of detailed fundamental kinetic models is the availability of accurate thermodynamic properties. To address the scarcity of accurate experimental data, theoretical calculations can be used. The accuracy of these quantum chemistry methods for determination of thermodynamic properties can be improved by making use of empirical correction methods, such as the isodesmic bond additivity correction (BAC) method. In ...
