  1. 1. Using life cycle assessment to support the development of electrified road vehicles. Component data models, methodology recommendations and technology advice for minimizing environmental impact

    Author : Anders Nordelöf; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; inverter; magnet; LCI; electrical machine; stepwise improvements; electric vehicle; LCA; inventory data; motor; critical review; scalable model;

    Abstract : The anthropogenic pressure on the Earth system already overshoots safe limits for climate change, so there is an urgent need to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by transportation. Electric propulsion technology is a promising solution that can decouple fossil fuel use from road vehicle traffic. READ MORE

  2. 2. System Expansion and Allocation in Life Cycle Assessment With Implications for Wastepaper Management

    Author : Tomas Ekvall; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; allocation; system expansion; LCI methodology; waste incineration; waste management; system boundaries; life cycle inventory analysis; paper recycling; environmental life cycle assessment; modelling;

    Abstract : The choice of system boundaries and allocation methods can have decisive effects on the results and conclusions of a life cycle assessment (LCA). System expansion makes it possible to model the indirect effects of a decision; however, this modelling is often based on inaccurate assumptions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of a Generic Model for Life Cycle Inventory and Environmental Assessment of Upstream Processes for Electronic Products

    Author : Anders Andrae; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; System-In-a-Package; electronic products; upstream processes; life cycle inventory; life cycle assessment;

    Abstract : The goal with the present thesis is to develop tools, methods and models to assess the upstream processes in the life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology for current and new electronic products. The goal is to get a better understanding on how to collect data to be used in a life cycle inventory (LCI) and use life cycle approaches to environmentally assess the electronics. READ MORE

  4. 4. Technical Alternatives and Energy in LCA

    Author : Carina Rehnström; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis is based on two papers, a comparative LCA case study paper and a paper on energy issues in LCA. A case study was done in order to investigate which of two compared technologies for chemical recovery in the pulp industry (recovery boiler, RB, or black liquor gasification, BLG) is environmentally favourable.

  5. 5. Barriers for implementation of the Environmental Load Profile and other LCA-based tools

    Author : Karolina Brick; Björn Frostell; Mauritz Glaumann; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Built environment; Life Cycle Assessment; Environmental engineering; Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : The building sector is a vital part in the progress towards environmental sustainability, because of its high potential to decrease the environmental impact. However, the building industry remains one of the most critical industries for the adoption of environmental sustainability principles, because of several unique characteristics in terms of e.
