  1. 1. Improved environmental assessment in the development of wood-based products: Capturing impacts of forestry and uncertainties of future product systems

    Author : Gustav A Sandin; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; wood; water use; scenario modelling; land use; impact assessment; product development; environmental assessment; end-of-life modelling; sustainability assessment; forestry;

    Abstract : The prospect of reducing environmental impacts is a key driver for the development of new wood-based products. But as wood-based products are not necessarily environmentally superior to non-wood alternatives, there is a need to assess the environmental impact of the product and guide the development process.

  2. 2. Environmental risk assessment of shipwrecks – Model development and application

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Hanna Landquist; [2016]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bayesian updating; shipwreck; environmental risk assessment; fault tree analysis; decision support;

    Abstract : Potentially polluting shipwrecks containing oil or other hazardous substances pose a threat to the marine environment. This is a global problem and many shipwrecks stem from the Second World War having been deteriorating on the sea floor since then. Only in Swedish waters more than 300 wrecks are estimated to pose an environmental threat. READ MORE

  3. 3. Contributions to Emission, Exposure and Risk Assessment of Nanomaterials
