  1. 1. Communication of life cycle assessment results : life cycle key performance indicators

    Author : Helena Nydahl; Thomas Olofsson; Anders P. Åstrand; Staffan Andersson; Åsa Wahlström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Life Cycle Assessment; Monetary Valuation; Climate Impact; Life Cycle Key Performance Indicators; Global Warming Potential; LCA-result communication; Interpretation of LCA-results; climate change; klimatförändringar;

    Abstract : The global warming that we are on track for will result in a severe loss of natural capital leading to significant losses in economic capital when urban infrastructure is destroyed, agricultural productivity declines and poverty spread among other disasters. Climate change due to emissions does not only affect the polluter, the hazardous effects becomes evident on a global level. READ MORE

  2. 2. Buildings in municipal climate change mitigation strategies : towards life cycle thinking

    Author : Nicolas Francart; Tove Malmqvist; Martin Erlandsson; Paula Femenias; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building; lca; requirement; environmental performance; futures studies; backcasting; environmental engineering; sustainable urban planning; Planering och beslutsanalys; Planning and Decision Analysis; Byggvetenskap; Civil and Architectural Engineering;

    Abstract : Fulfilling climate targets requires ambitious changes. The building sector is a large contributor to emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG), but also offers opportunities for climate change impact reductions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Life cycle assessment in the development of forest products : Contributions to improved methods and practices

    Author : Gustav Sandin; Magdalena Svanström; Greg Peters; Mats Westin; Annica Pilgård; Michael Narodoslawsky; RISE; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; R D; LCA; Life cycle assessment; wood; forest product; forestry; impact assessment; scenario modelling; end-of-life modelling; allocation; multi-functional; planetary boundaries; life cycle inventory; life cycle impact assessment; environmental assessment;

    Abstract : The prospect of reducing environmental impacts is a key driver for the research and development (R&D) of new forest products. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is often used for assessing the environmental impact of such products, e.g. for the purpose of guiding R&D. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling Life Cycle Cost for Indoor Climate Systems

    Author : Dennis Johansson; Institutionen för bygg- och miljöteknologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HVAC; life cycle cost; energy; Energy research; Energiforskning; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; indoor climate system; ventilation; maintenance; LCC;

    Abstract : The indoor climate system, which serves a building with a proper indoor air quality and thermal comfort, has been predominantly designed based on the initial cost. A life cycle approach could improve both the economic and environmental performance since the energy use could decrease. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evaluating energy efficient buildings : Energy- and moisture performance considering future climate change

    Author : Björn Berggren; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Net Zero Energy Building; passive house; thermal bridge; building envelope; energy performance; moisture performance; multi criteria decision making; climate change; climate scenarios; EN ISO 13789; EN ISO 10211;

    Abstract : One of the greatest challenges the world is facing is climate change. The need of reduction of energy use and an increased use of renewable energy in buildings constitutes important climate change mitigation measures. READ MORE
