  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; 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. Environmental Systems Analysis of Wastewater Management

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Erik Kärrman; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; 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

  3. 3. Conditions and Constraints for Waste Management. Collection, Characterisation and Producer Responsibility in Sweden

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Cecilia Mattsson Petersen; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2004]

    Abstract : New technologies for the extraction of valuable ocean resources are emerging: renewable ocean energy. Ocean energy technologies have so far primarily been developed in industrialized countries but will be deployed in both industrialized and developing countries. READ MORE

  5. 5. Metals in MSWI fly ash - problems or opportunities?

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Karin Karlfeldt Fedje; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Kemiteknik; Chemical engineering; MSW ash; leaching; metals; Cu; solvent extraction; speciation; NH3NO4; water; HNO3; pH;

    Abstract : Incineration of municipal solid waste is a commonly used management method to take care of our waste. However, the residues produced are a problem. They often contain large amounts of potentially toxic metal compounds and soluble salts, which can cause harm to the environment and human health if released from the ash. READ MORE
