  1. 1. Kind of turquoise : Effects of seafood eco-certification and sustainable consumption

    Author : Malin Jonell; Patrik Rönnbäck; Max Troell; Michael Tlusty; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; eco-certification; eco-labeling; seafood; aquaculture; shrimp; LCA; consumer behavior; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Aquaculture and fisheries hold promise for supplying a growing world population with healthy food produced without undermining the earth’s carrying capacity. However, just as livestock production and agriculture, seafood production can have negative environmental impacts and if a continuous or even increased supply is to be guaranteed, the pressure on affected ecosystems needs to be limited.

  2. 2. Eco-marketing & Eco-management. Exploring the eco-orientation - performance link in food retailing

    Author : Heléne Tjärnemo; Företagsekonomiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; economic systems; economic theory; Economics; econometrics; Sweden; Ecological Organic food products; grocery stores; economic policy; Nationalekonomi; ekonometri; ekonomisk teori; ekonomiska system; ekonomisk politik; Market study; Marknadsanalys;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to develop a conceptual framework of food retailers’ ecological orientation that considers the interaction between ecological marketing and ecological management. In this context, the relationship was examined between ecological orientation and sales of ecological food products and the overall store performance of Swedish food retailers. READ MORE

  3. 3. Eco-Technologies for Immobilizing Redox Enzymes on Conductive Textiles, for Sustainable Development

    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Eco-technology; Carbon felts; PEDOT:PSS; Glucose oxidase immobilization; Cold remote plasma; Genipin.; 生态技术;碳毡; PEDOT:PSS;葡萄糖氧化酶固定化;低温等离子远程处理技 术;京尼平; Eco-technologie; nontissés de carbone; PEDOT: PSS; immobilisation de glucose oxydase; plasma froid; génipine; Ekoteknik; karbonfilt; PEDOT: PSS; immobilisering av glukosoxidas; kall fjärrplasma; genipin.; Textil och mode generell ; Textiles and Fashion General ;

    Abstract : Enzyme immobilization on electrically conductive supports is necessary to improve their bioactivity and stability, for use and re-use in applications depending on bio-electrochemical response, such as in bioelectrodes, biosensors, or biofuel cells. However, the immobilization methods used are still facing many challenges in terms of health hazards and high environmental impact. READ MORE

  4. 4. Energy Saving vs. Performance: Trade-offs in Optical Networks

    Author : Pawel Wiatr; Paolo Monti; Josep Solé-Pareta; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; energy-efficiency; optical networks; RWA; side-effects; device reliability performance; network performance; operational cost; benefits; loss; Informations- och kommunikationsteknik; Information and Communication Technology;

    Abstract : The energy consumption of communication networks is continuously growing. Many energy saving approaches have been proposed at the device, system, and network level. The most promising way to address this problem is to utilize photonic technologies as much as possible thanks to their low energy consumption per bit performance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Environmental and Thermal Performance of District Heating Pipes

    Author : Morgan Fröling; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : district heat distribution; cyclopentane; district heating pipe; long-term thermal performance; life cycle assessment; insulation; polyurethane foam; environmental performance; carbon dioxide; HFC-365mfc;

    Abstract : In order to move towards a sustainable society we need to increase the efficiency of our use of available resources, not only in economic terms but also in ecological terms. District heating, the utilisation of centrally produced heat for space heating and domestic hot water generation, has the potential to contribute to the eco-efficient use of energy resources in the parts of the world where space heating is needed.
