  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 : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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 : 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. Ecology, Transport Infrastructure and Environmental Assessment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mårten Karlson; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; EIA; SEA; Transport Infrastructure; Ecology; Biodiversity;

    Abstract : Transport infrastructure has a wide array of effects on ecological processes. These effects benefit certain species and might enhance or accelerate ecological processes such as colonization and dispersal, but as well extinction. 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 : 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. Diffusion tests for assessing leaching from incineration residues

    University dissertation from Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Jelena Todorovic; Geosciences and Environmental Engineering.; Environmental and Natural Resources Engineering. Department of Civil; Waste Science and 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
