  1. 1. Innovation Processes and Environmental Planning : Science and Technology Policies in a Regional Context

    Author : Katarina Larsen; Folke Snickars; Andrew Stirling; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Innovation; environmental planning; science and technology parks; strategic environmental research; environmental procurement; futures studies; Environmental engineering; Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : The understanding of environmental change and how it is influenced by innovation processes and advances in science and technology is multifaceted given the inherent uncertainty of the pace and direction of technology change, but also given the limits to anticipate future environmental effects of new technology. The doctoral thesis is organised in two parts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Conjoint analysis as a tool for communication and corporate environmental decision-making

    Author : Stina Alriksson; Tomas Öberg; Marianne Lindström; Högskolan i Kalmar; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; conjoint analysis; PLS; Cluster analysis; Communication; Environmental; Decision-making; Environmental engineering; Miljöteknik; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : Conjoint analysis has been used extensively in marketing, transportation and healthcare for the past 50 years. Since the mid-1990s, it has also been applied to an increasing number of environmental issues. In this thesis, conjoint analysis is applied to environmental objectives of the Swedish steel industry.

  3. 3. Environmental preferences among steel stakeholders

    Author : Stina Alriksson; Marianne Henningsson; Carl-Erik Grip; Anders Roos; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; conjoint analysis; environmental communication; focus group; light weighting; PLS; preferences; Q-methodology; risk perception; steel; stakeholders; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : Emissions of carbon dioxide, dioxins, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter as well as use of non-renewable resources and energy are some important sustainability challenges for the Swedish steel industry. Much effort has been made, mainly by technical solutions, which to a high degree have decreased the emissions during the last 30 years. READ MORE

  4. 4. Baltic Sea sediments : Source and sink for metal contamination

    Author : Sina Shahabi-Ghahfarokhi; João Marcelo Ketzer; Alessandro Amorosi; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Baltic Sea; sediments; acid sulfate soil; metal; remediation; reoxygenation; X-ray absorption spectroscopy; Environmental Chemistry; Miljökemi; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : The Baltic Sea sediments record spatial and temporal information about metalsand metalloids (hereafter referred to as metals), which could help to understandthe past and present contamination sinks in different basins. In addition, giventhe expanding anoxic zones in the Baltic Sea, the response of metals to artificialreoxygenation is poorly understood. READ MORE

  5. 5. Re-viewing industrial energy-efficiency improvement using a widened system boundary

    Author : Svetlana Paramonova; Patrik Thollander; Mats Söderström; Stefan Grönkvist; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Improved energy efficiency in industry is important for reaching the targets within the EU strategy for increased sustainability. However, energy efficiency is not always prioritised within companies, and the improvement potential remains large. This paradox called an energyefficiency gap is explained by energy-efficiency barriers. READ MORE
