• An Alternative Approach for the Estimation of Biochar Yields 

      Weber, Kathrin; Heuer, Sebastian; Quicker, Peter; Li, Tian; Løvås, Terese; Scherer, Viktor (Peer reviewed, 2018)
      In this study, a novel approach for the determination of the solid mass yield from slow pyrolysis based on a comparison of the volatile matter contents of feedstock and char is presented. The approach was tested with ...
    • Production and Properties of Biochar 

      Weber, Kathrin (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2018:61, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
      Biochar, the solid product of biomass pyrolysis, has been produced and utilized for many thousand years. It is one of the most versatile solid fuels with applications ranging from heat and power production to metallurgy ...
    • Status of waste-to-energy in Germany, Part I ? Waste treatment facilities 

      Weber, Kathrin; Quicker, Peter; Hanewinkel, Jörg; Flamme, Sabine (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      This study gives a detailed overview over the German waste-to-energy sector in 2015. The aim is to quantify the available treatment capacities and the energetic potential of waste in Germany. The work is based on an extensive ...
    • Stochastic reactor modeling of biomass pyrolysis and gasification 

      Weber, Kathrin; Li, Tian; Løvås, Terese; Seidel, Lars; Perlman, Cathleen; Mauss, Fabian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In this paper, a partially stirred stochastic reactor model is presented as an alternative for the modeling of biomass pyrolysis and gasification. Instead of solving transport equations in all spatial dimensions as in CFD ...
