  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; modelling; paper recycling; waste incineration; environmental life cycle assessment; LCI methodology; allocation; waste management; system expansion; system boundaries; life cycle inventory analysis;

    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

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Environmental Life-cycle Assessment in Microelectronics Packaging

    Author : Anders Andrae; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : System-In-a-Package; microelectronics packaging; data collection; attributional environmental life-cycle assessment; uncertainty analysis; upstream processes; consequential life-cycle assessment; environmental life-cycle inventory; microelectronic products;

    Abstract : An increased understanding of the application of environmental Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodologies in the microelectronics packaging area should help in developing environmentally sound product systems. The aim of the present thesis is to increase the knowledge of using LCA tools, methods and models, in application to current and new microelectronic products. READ MORE
