  1. 1. Contributions to Emission, Exposure and Risk Assessment of Nanomaterials

    Author : Rickard Arvidsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; nanoparticles; particle flow analysis; emission assessment; titanium dioxide; graphene; silver; risk assessment; exposure assessment; Nanomaterials; substance flow analysis.;

    Abstract : In recent years, synthetic nanomaterials have begun to be produced and used in increasingly larger volumes. These materials may cause new or increased risks to the environment, but no harmonized methods for structured assessment of their environmental risks exist. READ MORE

  2. 2. Energy Efficient Longitudinal Control

    Author : Rickard Arvidsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Autonomous Vehicles; Optimal Control; Hybrid drivetrain control; Combustion Engines;

    Abstract : Vehicles are contributing to global and local environmental problems as a result of fossil fuels. A majority of the combustion engine population is driven by fossil fuels and electrified vehicles are also to a large extent dependent on electricity production from fossil fuels. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards Prospective Exposure Modeling of Nanoparticles - Applying Particle Flow Analysis and Kinetic Exposure Modeling for the Cases of TiO2 and Ag Nanoparticles

    Author : Rickard Arvidsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHĂ„LLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; exposure modeling; environmental risk assessment; nanoparticles; Particle flow analysis PFA ;

    Abstract : The claims regarding the usefulness of nanoparticles (NPs) in different applications, such as wound dressings, solar cells and soil remediation, has been accompanied by concern that NPs may also pose risks to humans and to the environment. Considering the past century, when many substances later shown to cause unacceptable damage were manufactured in large amounts, there are reasons to thoroughly assess the risks of these NPs. READ MORE
