  1. 16. How can consumables be made more resource efficient? Environmental and resource assessment of measures

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Siri Willskytt; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Life Cycle Assessment; measures; incontinence products; resource efficency; LCA; consumables; circular economy;

    Abstract : The global population growth paired with increasing consumption per capita puts resource efficiency and sustainability on the political agenda. Consequently, the need for resource-efficient and sustainable products, including consumables, is expected to increase in the future. READ MORE

  2. 17. Contributions to Emission, Exposure and Risk Assessment of Nanomaterials

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Rickard Arvidsson; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nanoparticles; particle flow analysis; emission assessment; titanium dioxide; graphene; silver; risk assessment; exposure assessment; Nanomaterials; substance flow analysis.;

    Abstract : In recent years, synthetic nanomaterials have begun to be produced and used in increasingly larger volumes. These materials may cause new or increased risks to the environment, but no harmonized methods for structured assessment of their environmental risks exist. READ MORE

  3. 18. Investigating the Relation between Efficient, Effective and Sustainable Remediation of Contaminated Sites

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Robert Anderson; [2018]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; decision support; sustainability assessment; efficient remediation; multi-criteria decision analysis; contaminated sites; cost-benefit analysis; effective remediation;

    Abstract : Remediation of contaminated sites reduces negative impacts to humans and the environment, but the process itself is typically associated with high costs to society and large environmental footprints. The sustainable remediation concept has, over the past decade, brought increased attention to the often-overlooked contradictory effects of site remediation. READ MORE

  5. 20. Targeted and untargeted analysis of organic contaminants from on-site sewage treatment facilities Removal, fate and environmental impact

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Kristin Blum; Peter Haglund; Patrik Andersson; Pim Leonards; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; decentralized sewage treatment; wastewater; surface water; environmental fate; bioavailability; removal efficiency; mass fluxes; biochar; environment; GC×GC-MS; LC-IM-MS; mass spectrometry; contaminants; pollutants; prioritization; non-target analysis; screening; analytisk kemi; Analytical Chemistry;

    Abstract : On-site sewage treatment facilities (OSSFs) are widely used all over the world to treat wastewater when large-scale sewage treatment plants (STPs) are not economically feasible. Although there is great awareness that the release of untreated wastewater into the environment can lead to water-related diseases and eutrophication, little is known about organic contaminants and their removal by OSSFs, environmental load and fate.
