  1. 1. Non-CO2 greenhouse gases, uncertainty and land-use competition

    Author : Daniel Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Kyoto protocol; energy system; integrated assessment; environmental economics; land use change; bioenergy; climate change; greenhouse gases; GWP;

    Abstract : Over the past 250 years the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have increased drastically. It is close to scientific consensus that these changes have increased the temperature of the earth. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling Climate Policy – Trade-Off Metrics, Resource Markets, and Uncertainty

    Author : Daniel Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; OPEC; GWP; energy; uncertainty; biomass; climate change; oil; land use; greenhouse gases; Kyoto Protocol;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of five papers related to climate change policy. In paper I andpaper II we discuss the use of Global Warming Potentials (GWPs) that facilitate the tradeoffbetween abatement of the different greenhouse gases (GHGs). READ MORE

  4. 4. MAKING TRADE-OFFS IN THE GREENHOUSE: Relative Price Changes, Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases and Tropical Deforestation in Climate Policy

    Author : Martin Persson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; GWP; discounting; RED; climate change; substitutability; Kyoto protocol; tropical deforestation; palm oil; biofuels; Amazon; climate policy; uncertainty;

    Abstract : This thesis, consisting of five separate papers, is an inquiry into climate policy and the trade-offs that have to be made when formulating such policy. It covers three major topics: (1) the economics of choosing a climate policy target; (2) the economic merits of the Global Warming Potentials (GWPs), the metric governing the trade-off between abatement of different greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the current climate regime; and (3) the promises and challenges with including the GHG emissions from tropical deforestation in a future climate regime.

  5. 5. Flow boiling heat transfer, pressure drop and dryout characteristics of low GWP refrigerants in a vertical mini-channel

    Author : Zahid Anwar; Björn Palm; Rahmatollah Khodabandeh; Maria Fernandino; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mini micro-channels; R1234yf; R152a; R600a; R134a; Boiling heat transfer; Pressure drop; Dryout; Correlation;

    Abstract : Two-phase heat transfer in mini/micro-channels is capable of meeting the high cooling demands of modern high heat flux applications. The phase change process ensures better temperature uniformity and control for local hot spots. Furthermore, these compact channels could be helpful in reducing the required charge and material inventories. READ MORE
