    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; industrial environmental management; environmental information systems; total quality management; information review; information quality definition; information quality requirements; information quality; information quality management;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to describe how quality of environmental information can be defined and managed to support industrial environmental management. Environmental information is used in industries to monitor and control the environmental aspects of products and processes. READ MORE

  2. 2. MATERIAL EFFICIENCY MANAGEMENT IN MANUFACTURING

    Author : Sasha Shahbazi; Magnus Wiktorsson; Marcus Bjelkemyr; Christina Jönsson; Thomas Lindhqvist; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Material efficiency; industrial waste management; manufacturing; Innovation and Design; innovation och design;

    Abstract : Material efficiency is a key solution to provide a reduction in the total environmental impact of global manufacturing, which contributes to avoid generating larger volumes of industrial waste, to reduce extracting and consuming ever more resources and to decrease energy demand and carbon emissions. However, the area of material efficiency in manufacturing has been under-researched and related knowledge is limited. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploring Process Management as a Means for Greening Road Freight Transport

    Author : Priscilla Navarro; Peter Cronemyr; Maria Huge-Brodin; Anders Fundin; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Research has proven that we need to reduce our environmental impact. Sweden has set a goal to become fossil free by 2045. The increasing amount of transport and the need to reduce its environmental effects has put pressure on the companies of the road freight transport sector. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Karma of Products : Exploring the Causality of Environmental Pressure with Causal Loop Diagram and Environmental Footprint

    Author : Rafael Laurenti; Björn Frostell; Andrius Plepys; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Products; Environmental Pressure; Causal Loop Diagram; Environmental Footprint; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Abstract : Environmental pressures from consumer products and mechanisms of predetermination were examined in this thesis using causal loop diagram (CLD) and life cycle assessment (LCA) footprinting to respectively illustrate and provide some indicators about these mechanisms. Theoretical arguments and their practical implications were subjected to qualitative and quantitative analysis, using secondary and primary data. READ MORE
