    Author : Catarina Thormark; Institutionen för byggvetenskaper; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Arkitektur; interior design; Architecture; LCA; Environmental Assessment; Deconstruction; Disassembly; Design; Building Products; Recycling Potential; Recycling; Building Waste; inredningsarkitektur; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Abstract : Recycling as part of environmental considerations has become a common feature in architecture and building construction. Recycling of building waste can make a considerable contribution to reducing the total environmental impact of the building sector. READ MORE

  2. 2. Recycling and durability of PVC materials focusing on pre- and post-consumer wastes from building products

    Author : Nazdaneh Yarahmadi; SP – Sveriges Tekniska Forskningsinstitut *(2016-12-31) SP – Sveriges Tekniska Forskningsinstitut; []
    Keywords : Accelerated ageing; Activation energy; Annealing; Cables; Dehydrochlorination; Dismantling; DSC; Elongation at break; Emissions; Energy recovery; Flooring; Heat ageing; Lifetime; Orientation; Physical ageing; Plasticised PVC; Plasticiser depletion; Profiles; Recycling; Repeated extrusion; Residual stability; Rigid PVC; Sustainable building; Chlorination; Degradation; Durability; Mechanical properties; Plastic building materials; Plasticizers; Stabilizers agents ; Tensile properties; Molecular level; Polyvinyl chlorides;

    Abstract : The potential for recycling various polymeric materials contained within buildings constructed in the late 1960s and 1970s in Sweden was investigated during the course of this work. Three residential blocks were studied to establish the quantity of materials available for recycling, to investigate the difficulty in and time needed for the dismantling of the buildings, the degree of purity of the materials, and the possibility of separating the materials.

  4. 4. Building Sustainable Batteries : Organic electrodes based on Li- and Na-benzenediacrylate

    Author : Alina Oltean; Daniel Brandell; Leif Nyholm; Steven Renault; Martin Sjödin; Robert Dominko; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Organic Electrode Materials; Li-ion Batteries; Na-ion Batteries; Calendaring; Recycling Process; Kemi med inriktning mot materialkemi; Chemistry with specialization in Materials Chemistry;

    Abstract : As possible alternatives to the conventional inorganic Li- or Na-ion battery electrode materials, organic compounds have recently drawn considerable attention. However, major challenges such as poor electronic conductivity, solubility in battery electrolyte or fast capacity decay of the resulting electrochemical cells are some of the reasons that hold these compounds back from becoming commercial solutions in the energy system.

  5. 5. Life cycle primary energy use and carbon emission of residential buildings

    Author : Ambrose Dodoo; Leif Gustavsson; Svend Svendsen; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Byggteknik; Civil engineering;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the primary energy use and carbon emissions of residential buildings are studied using a system analysis methodology with a life cycle perspective. The analysis includes production, operation, retrofitting and end-of-life phases and encompasses the entire natural resource chain. READ MORE
