  1. 1. Transparency within REACH? Regulatory risk assessment of industrial chemicals

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Ellen Ingre-Khans; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; REACH; chemicals legislation; risk assessment; hazard assessment; transparency; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Chemicals provide us with many benefits but can also have adverse effects on human health and the environment. Concerns that previous European legislations were not providing adequate protection from chemical risks resulted in a new chemicals legislation – REACH – in 2007. READ MORE

  2. 2. 1060 nm GaAs VCSELs for Extended Reach Optical Interconnects in Data Centers

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Ewa Simpanen; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; high-speed modulation; reach; vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser; multi-mode; single-mode; optical interconnect; chromatic dispersion; attenuation;

    Abstract : The data centers of today are increasing in size and are built to accommodate strong data traffic demands while providing sustainably by having clients sharing resources under one roof. Their massive scale puts pressure on the server network topology and has incited a need for data transmission links that are energy efficient and capable to operate at high bit rates with reach up to a few kilometers.

  3. 3. Chemicals in consumer products Towards a safe and sustainable use

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Linda Molander; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; consumer products; articles; hazardous chemicals; risk management; chemicals regulation; REACH; substitution; regulatory toxicology; European Union;

    Abstract : Health and environmental risks associated with emissions of hazardous chemicals from articles, including everyday consumer products such as clothes and toys, have become widely acknowledged internationally, particularly in the EU. This thesis contributes to new understandings of how these risks are currently managed within the EU and recommends actions for ensuring a safe and sustainable use of chemicals in articles.

  4. 4. In silico tools in risk assessment of industrial chemicals in general and non-dioxin-like PCBs in particular

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Mia Stenberg; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Chemometrics; industrial chemicals; in silico tools; molecular descriptors; non-dioxin-like PCBs; partial least-squares PLS ; principal component analysis PCA ; quantitative structure-activity relationship QSAR ; REACH; risk assessment RA ; statistical molecular design; structure-activity relationship SAR ;

    Abstract : Industrial chemicals in European Union produced or imported in volumes above 1 tonne annually, necessitate a registration within REACH. A common problem, concerning these chemicals, is deficient information and lack of data for assessing the hazards posed to human health and the environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Setting occupational exposure limits Practices and outcomes of toxicological risk assessment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Linda Schenk; KTH.; Södertörns högskola.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Biochemistry Toxicology; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Biokemi Toxikologi; Assessment Factor; DNEL; Euroepan Union; Occupational Exposure Limit; REACH; Risk Assessment; Regulatory Toxicology; SCOEL; Uncertainty Factor;

    Abstract : Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) are used as an important regulatory instrument to protect workers’ health from adverse effects of chemical exposures. The main objective of this thesis is to study risk assessment practices in the setting of OEL in order to produce knowledge that will help improve the consistency and transparency of OELs. READ MORE
