  1. 1. Life Cycle Impacts of Road Infrastructure : Assessment of energy use and greenhouse gas emissions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sofiia Miliutenko; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : Natural Sciences Earth and Related Environmental Sciences Environmental Sciences; Naturvetenskap Geovetenskap och miljövetenskap Miljövetenskap; Cumulative Energy Demand CED ; Global Warming Potential GWP ; Life Cycle Assessment LCA ; road infrastructure; strategic planning;

    Abstract : Road infrastructure is essential in the development of human society, but has both negative and positive impacts. Large amounts of money and natural resources are spent each year on its construction, operation and maintenance. Obviously, there is potentially significantenvironmental impact associated with these activities. READ MORE

  2. 2. Environmental assessment of incinerator residue utilisation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Susanna Toller; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : Engineering and Technology Environmental Engineering Other Environmental Engineering; Teknik och teknologier Naturresursteknik Annan naturresursteknik; MSWI bottom ash; wood ash; recycling; LCA; environmental assessment; geochemical speciation modelling; dissolved organic matter; copper Cu ; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Environmental engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Miljöteknik;

    Abstract :  In Sweden, utilisation of incinerator residues outside disposal areas is restricted by environmental concerns, as such residues commonly contain greater amounts of potentially toxic trace elements than the natural materials they replace. On the other hand, utilisation can also provide environmental benefits by decreasing the need for landfill and reducing raw material extraction. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diffusion tests for assessing leaching from incineration residues

    University dissertation from Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Jelena Todorovic; Luleå University of Technology.; Luleå University of Technology.; Luleå University of Technology.; [2004]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Increasing amounts of incineration residues need to be disposed, reused or treated, which calls for reliable characterisation methods. Leaching tests are often used for an assessment of release of pollutants from wastes under a variety of leaching factors. READ MORE

  4. 4. Environmental assessment of municipal solid waste incinerator bottom ash in road constructions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Susanna Olsson; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : Natural Sciences Earth and Related Environmental Sciences Environmental Sciences; Naturvetenskap Geovetenskap och miljövetenskap Miljövetenskap; bottom ash; environmental impact; LCA; waste management; leaching; copper; dissolved organic carbon; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi;

    Abstract : There are several incentives for using bottom ash from municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI bottom ash) as a construction material, such as for road construction. These incentives include decreased disposal of material on landfills and a reduced amount of raw material extracted for road building purposes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Life Cycle Assessment of Asphalt Roads : Decision Support at the Project Level

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ali Azhar Butt; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : Engineering and Technology Civil Engineering; Teknik och teknologier Samhällsbyggnadsteknik; Environmental Engineering; Naturresursteknik; Asphalt roads; life cycle assessment; feedstock energy; warm mix asphalt additives; green procurement; decision support; laboratory investigation; pavement design.; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Transport infrastructures such as roads are assets for the society as they not only ensure mobility but also strengthen society’s economy. Considerable amount of energy and materials, that include bitumen, aggregates and asphalt, are required to build and maintain roads. READ MORE
