My research concerns resource recovery in renewable energy systems and the work involves X-ray analytical techniques, both at the university and at synchrotrons.

My scientific work aims at enabling nutrient and resource recovery from the energy sector by using fuel design with renewable energy resources to improve the ash quality and thereby, contribute to the foundation of a sustainable society. Even though the goal is common, the desired fuel blend compositions are likely different for the forestry sector, agricultural sector, and waste streams from society.

Currently, the most important research topic in my work involves fundamental studies of phosphate structures in ash fractions since it has been shown that it is possible to aim for the formation of certain phosphates in thermochemical conversion of biomass and waste streams. Some of these structures are potentially suitable growth of plants but it is important to determine if heavy metal mobility would be affected during this plant uptake of phosphorus and potassium found in the structures.

As part of this work, which is funded by the Swedish Research Council and FORMAS, I will be conducting studies abroad at TU-Wien, Austria, and at the Advanced Light Source synchrotron found at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA during the time period 2018-2021. Establishing synchrotron-based analytical methods within my field of research will not only be of great assistance in reaching a sustainable society, but will also allow me to assist other research groups with user training in the future.

In addition to these detailed structural studies I am working in a range of different research projects where such a fuel design approach is developed together with industrial partners and academic partners. The Swedish strategic research programme Bio4Energy has been a great resource in these endeavours through promotion of interdisciplinary work and research together with different research groups from several universities. Some of the other projects where I am involved are listed below.
