  1. 1. Microbial risk assessment and its implications for risk management in urban water systems

    Author : Therese Westrell; Thor-Axel Stenström; Nick Ashbolt; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Quantitative microbial risk assessment; pathogens; urban; decentralised; failures; noroviruses; water consumption; HACCP; drinking water; wastewater; sludge; faeces; risk management; Water in nature and society; Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Abstract : Infectious disease can be transmitted via various environmental pathways, many of which are incorporated into our water and wastewater systems. Quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) can be a valuable tool in identifying hazard exposure pathways and estimating their associated health impacts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fresh Perspectives on the Assessment of Sewage Sludge Management

    Author : Robin Harder; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; life cycle assessment; biosolids; land application; sewage sludge; pathogen risk; risk assessment; life cycle impact assessment; human toxicity; wastewater; chemical risks;

    Abstract : Sewage sludge management and its role in closing nutrient cycles have received considerable attention in recent years. This thesis quantified phosphorus flows in Gothenburg, Sweden, under current and possible future waste management practices, and aimed to improve the assessment of wastewater and sludge management from an environmental and human health perspective through blending risk assessment (RA) and life cycle assessment (LCA).

  3. 3. Dispersion and risk assessment of airborne contaminants in pharmaceutical clean rooms

    Author : Berit Reinmüller; KTH; []
    Keywords : airborne contamination; clean rooms; clean zones; clothing systems; dispersion of contaminants; LR-Method; microbiological risk assessment; risk assessment; source strenth;

    Abstract : In many of today's industries, particularly in the healthcare field, special protection is required against airbornemicrobiological contamination. Clean rooms and clean zones areused to separate the ambient environment from contaminationcontrolled areas. READ MORE

  4. 4. Risk-Based Decision Model for Microbial Risk Mitigation in Drinking Water Systems

    Author : Viktor Bergion; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : drinking water; quantitative microbial risk assessment; cost-benefit analysis; health risk; contaminant fate and transport modelling; economic valuation of health effects; pathogen;

    Abstract : Microbial risks in drinking water systems can cause sporadic pathogenic infections and waterborne outbreaks resulting in large costs for society. In 2010 for example, around 27,000 persons were infected with Cryptosporidium in Östersund, Sweden. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of a Risk-Based Decision Model for Prioritizing Microbial Risk Mitigation Measures in Drinking Water Systems

    Author : Viktor Bergion; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : quantitative microbial risk assessment; microbial risks; pathogens; water quality modelling; drinking water system; cost-benefit analysis; decision support;

    Abstract : Risk management of drinking water systems is crucial since our society relies on these systems to be robust and sustainable to supply safe drinking water now and to future generations. Pathogens may spread in drinking water systems and cause waterborne outbreaks resulting in human suffering and large costs to the society. READ MORE
