  2. 2. Building Sustainable Peace : Understanding the Linkages between Social, Political, and Ecological Processes in Post-War Countries

    Author : Florian Krampe; Ashok Swain; Roland Kostic; Larry Swatuk; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Sustainable peace; peacebuilding; post-war reconstruction; non-state actors; state actors; legitimacy; environmental peacebuilding; environmental security; sustainable development; Peace and Conflict Research; Freds- och konfliktforskning;

    Abstract : Post-war countries are among the most difficult policy arenas for international and domestic actors. The challenge is not only to stop violence and prevent violence from rekindling, but moreover to help countries reset their internal relations on a peaceful path. The indirect, long-term effects of wars further exaggerate this challenge. READ MORE

  3. 3. An Approach Towards Sustainable Building

    Author : Navid Gohardani; Folke Björk; Kjartan Gudmundsson; Göran Lindahl; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sustainability; Built environment; Sustainable renovation; High-efficient insulation materials; Sweden Green Building Council; Vacuum Insulation Panels VIP ; Decision making; GreenBuilding; Early stage; Stakeholders; A Concept for promotion of sustainable retrofitting and renovation in Early Stages ACES ; Early Stage Primary Energy Estimation Tool ESPEET ;

    Abstract : The motivation for development of energy efficiency and implementation of novel advanced materials applied in buildings can be traced to increasing energy costs in conjunction with an enhanced environmental awareness among people. This doctoral dissertation presents contributions towards sustainable building, where factors such as building technology, energy efficiency in buildings, workers' health issues during construction measures, and certain economic considerations for renovation of buildings have been considered.

  4. 4. Building Sustainable Batteries : Organic electrodes based on Li- and Na-benzenediacrylate

    Author : Alina Oltean; Daniel Brandell; Leif Nyholm; Steven Renault; Martin Sjödin; Robert Dominko; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Organic Electrode Materials; Li-ion Batteries; Na-ion Batteries; Calendaring; Recycling Process; Kemi med inriktning mot materialkemi; Chemistry with specialization in Materials Chemistry;

    Abstract : As possible alternatives to the conventional inorganic Li- or Na-ion battery electrode materials, organic compounds have recently drawn considerable attention. However, major challenges such as poor electronic conductivity, solubility in battery electrolyte or fast capacity decay of the resulting electrochemical cells are some of the reasons that hold these compounds back from becoming commercial solutions in the energy system.
