  1. 1. The effect of resource sustainability interventions on social sustainable development in the built environment

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Mikael Mangold; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Social Sustainability; Housing; Domestic Water;

    Abstract : There are several sustainable development targets for the Swedish housing market. The sector as a whole is expected to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases. Housing prices should increase and not inflate. Meanwhile, the development of the built environment should contribute to well being and decrease segregation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Buoy and Generator Interaction with Ocean Waves : Studies of a Wave Energy Conversion System

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Simon Lindroth [formerly Tyrberg]; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wave power; Measurement systems; Marine technology; Energy conversion; Renewable energy; Energy absorption; Wave resource; Oceanic engineering; Linear generators; Point absorbers; Sea trials; Camera systems; Accelerometers; Offshore experiments; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : On March 13th, 2006, the Division of Electricity at Uppsala University deployed its first wave energy converter, L1, in the ocean southwest of Lysekil. L1 consisted of a buoy at the surface, connected through a line to a linear generator on the seabed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Urban wastewater systems: From disposal to reuse. A study of different systems with focus on water and nutrients flows

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Justyna Czemiel Berndtsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Urban; Storm Water; Wastewater; Civil engineering; offshore technology; hydraulic engineering; Väg- och vattenbyggnadsteknik; soil mechanics; pollution control; Environmental technology; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; Nutrients;

    Abstract : Urban wastewater systems are currently exposed to a major rethink dictated by new demands on resource management. It is postulated that next to providing efficient sanitation (preventing spread of pathogenic microorganisms) these systems should support resource reuse. READ MORE

  4. 4. METHODS FOR TRANSBOUNDARY WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT IN WATER STRESSED REGIONS – CASE STUDY: SOUTHERN AFRICA

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Dinis Juizo; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; water quality monitoring; river basin simulation; stakeholders involvement; Southern Africa; South Africa; Mozambique; transboundary water systems; Swaziland;

    Abstract : Water resources management in water scarce regions like the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) is challenging with both large hydro-climatic-induced scarcity and the considerable inter-annual fluctuations at the centre of the allocation problem. Water must be allocated both in time and space using acceptable criteria and most importantly, all stakeholders must adhere to the decisions imposed by water sharing agreements. READ MORE

  5. 5. Environmental Systems Analysis of Wastewater Management

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Erik Kärrman; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; Civil engineering and architecture; Miljöteknik; Environmental engineering;

    Abstract : The history of wastewater management tells us that efforts have been made at solving only one problem at the time; sanitation during the first half of the 20th Century followed by eutrophication of lakes and sea and, for the past ten years, recycling of nutrients. After the "Brundtland Report", 1987, a reversal of the debate occurred where water management was discussed in a more holistic manner than before. READ MORE
