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

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Viktor Bergion; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; quantitative microbial risk assessment; microbial risks; pathogens; water quality modelling; drinking water system; cost-benefit analysis; decision support; drinking water; microbial risk;

    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

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

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Therese Westrell; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Quantitative microbial risk assessment; pathogens; urban; decentralised; failures; noroviruses; water consumption; HACCP; drinking water; wastewater; sludge; faeces; risk management; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Water in nature and society; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN 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

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

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Viktor Bergion; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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

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

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Robin Harder; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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).

  5. 5. Evaluation of microbial health risks associated with the reuse of source-separated humna urine

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Bioteknologi

    Author : Caroline Höglund; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : urine-separation; urine; wastewater systems; wastewater reuse; recycling; enteric pathogens; faecal sterols; indicator bacteria; hygiene risks; microbial persistence; microbial risk assessment; QMRA; fertiliser; crop;

    Abstract : Human excreta contain plant nutrients and have the potentialto be used as a fertiliser in agriculture. Urine contributesthe major proportion of the nutrients (N, P and K) in domesticwastewater whereas faeces contribute a smaller amount andinvolves greater health risks if reused due to the possiblepresence of enteric pathogens.
