  2. 2. Cancer Risk Assessment of Glycidol Evaluation of a Multiplicative Risk Model for Genotoxic Compounds

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Jenny Aasa; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; glycidol; 3-monochloropropane-1; 2-diol 3-MCPD ; genotoxicity; mutations; micronuclei; hemoglobin adducts; in vivo dose; multiplicative risk model; cancer risk assessment; human cancer risk; Environmental Chemistry; miljökemi;

    Abstract : Humans are exposed to chemical compounds in everyday life, both from the environment and from endogenous processes. Some compounds constitute a risk for cancer development. One such compound is glycidol, which is genotoxic and an animal carcinogen. It is the model compound of this work, partly due to its presence in food. READ MORE

  3. 3. Integrated and Probabilistic Risk Analysis of Drinking Water Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Andreas Lindhe; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; water safety plan; customer minutes lost; probabilistic; fault tree analysis; risk analysis; risk; integrated; drinking water system; hazard; uncertainty;

    Abstract : Drinking water supply is an essential public function but is at the same time exposed to risks. Since a totally risk-free society is not attainable, risks need to be managed efficiently to achieve an acceptable level of risk. READ MORE

  4. 4. When water becomes a threat Risk assessment and risk management plans for floods and drinking water in Swedish practice

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Viveca Norén; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Flood; Drinking water supply; Risk management; Risk assessment; Flood risk management plan FRMP ; Integrated flood management IFM ; Tools and methods; Practice compared to theory; Sweden; Municipalities; Interview study; Document study; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot miljöanalys; Earth Science with specialization in Environmental Analysis;

    Abstract : Water is an essential but vulnerable resource. A shortage of good quality drinking water is a threat to human health and society as a whole. Abundance of water in the form of floods can also be a serious threat which can have consequences for the drinking water supply. To reduce these risks there is a need for systematic risk reduction.

  5. 5. Risk Assessment of Hygrothermal Performance - Building Envelope Retrofit

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Simon Pallin; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; retrofit; Risk; hygrothermal; simulations.; residential; mold; energy savings;

    Abstract : A risk assessment of the hygrothermal performance for a building envelope retrofit investigates possible variations in energy performance, indoor environment quality and moisture safety and elaborates on the risks of exceeding defined acceptance criteria. These risks can be properly determined if including the variability of, by the investigated retrofit, most influencing parameters. READ MORE
