  1. 1. Systems Modeling Approaches to Physical Resource Management : An Industrial Ecology Perspective

    Author : Rajib Sinha; Björn Frostell; Maria Malmström; Miguel Brandao; Mujibur Rahman; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Complex systems modeling; environmental accounting and monitoring; en- vironmental footprint; industrial ecology; pressure-based driver-oriented approach; Modellering av komplexa system; miljöräkenskaper och miljöövervakning; miljöpåverkan; industriell ekologi; flödesbaserad övervakningaktörsorienterad strategi; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Abstract : Many of the present problems that we are facing arise as unanticipated side-effects of our own actions. Moreover, the solutions implemented to solve important problems often create new problems. To avoid unintended consequences, understanding complex systems is essential in devising policy instruments and in improving environmental management. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microalgae - future bioresource of the sea?

    Author : Martin Olofsson; Catherine Legrand; Jukka Seppälä; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Microalgae; algal cultivation; bioresource; bioenergy; CO2 mitigation; multi-species community approach; seasonal variation; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; Environmental technology; Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Unicellular microalgae are a renewable bioresource that can meet the challenge forfood and energy in a growing world population. Using sunlight, CO2, nutrients,and water, algal cells produce biomass in the form of sugars, proteins and oils, allof which carry commercial value as food, feed and bioenergy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Developing and optimizing processes for biological nitrogen removal from tannery wastewaters in Ethiopia

    Author : Seyoum Leta; Gunnel Dalhammar; Jes Ia Cour Jenson; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; biological nitrogen and supphide removal; dntififying bacteria; nitrade-reducing; sulphuroxidizing bacteria; nitrate uptake rate; Ekologi; Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi;

    Abstract : In Ethiopia industrial effluents containing high contents of organic matter, nitrogen and heavy metals are discharged into inland surface waters with little or no pre-treatment. Significant pollution concerns related to these effluents include dissolved oxygen depletion, toxicity and eutrophication of the receiving waters. READ MORE

  4. 4. Emerging technologies for climate-neutral urban areas : An Industrial Ecology perspective

    Author : Asterios Papageorgiou; Cecilia Sundberg; Rajib Sinha; Maria Malmström; Ola Eriksson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Urban areas; climate neutrality; solar microgrid; biochar; Life Cycle Assessment; Material and Energy Flow Analysis; Substance Flow Analysis; Urbana områden; klimatneutralitet; solmikronät; biokol; livscykelanalys; material- och energiflödesanalys; substansflödesanalyss; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Abstract : The ever-increasing concentration of human activity in urban areas induces environmental problems beyond their boundaries on scales ranging from local to regional to global, such as resource depletion, land degradation, air and water pollution and climate change. Human-induced climate change is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest sustainability challenges of the present century and it is inextricably linked to urbanization. READ MORE

  5. 5. Industrial Ecology and Development of Production Systems : Analysis of the CO2  Footprint of Cement

    Author : Roozbeh Feiz; Mats Eklund; Jonas Ammenberg; Henrikke Baumann; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; industrial ecology; industrial symbiosis; industrial development; life cycle assessment; multi-criteria assessment; CO2 footprint; cement;

    Abstract : This research is an attempt to create a comprehensive assessment framework for identifying and assessing potential improvement options of cement production systems.From an environmental systems analysis perspective, this study provides both an empirical account and a methodological approach for quantifying the CO2 footprint of a cement production system.
