  1. 1. Designing out waste - Exploring barriers for material recirculation

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Isabel Ordonez Pizarro; [2016]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; waste sorting; sustainable development; Water; Waste; Urban; waste management; Resources; resource recovery; ​Recycling; designing with waste; recycling;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis has investigated what hinders material recirculation in society, to later suggest possible ways to support material recirculation in the future. Since material recirculation is proposed as a way to use waste materials for new production, it was deemed relevant to investigate two separate case studies that enabled recirculation from production systems and waste management.

  2. 2. Turning waste into resources: Rethinking the way we discard things

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Maria Isabel Ordonez; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Solid waste; resource recovery; material loops; waste sorting; user centred design; design with waste; waste collection systems;

    Abstract : Waste is one of the biggest challenges faced by our society. If not handled correctly, waste pollutes our natural environment with devastating results. However, it seems almost unavoidable that our society generates waste. READ MORE

  3. 3. Conditions and constraints for waste management : collection, characterisation and producer responsibility in Sweden

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Cecilia Mattsson Petersen; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; collection; household waste; landfill ban; producer responsibility; source separation; waste characterisation; waste component analysis; waste management;

    Abstract : Waste management has changed from being mainly a question of transporting out of sight to being an issue entwined in all parts of society, from product planning to the private domestic sphere. This has imposed new conditions and constraints for waste management, the description of which is the objective of this thesis. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Value and Waste

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Peter Wallström; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Value; Waste; Marketing; Resource-based view; RBV; Civil engineering and architecture - Building manufacturing engineering; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur - Byggproduktionsteknik; Construction Engineering and Management; Byggproduktion;

    Abstract : Value and waste are concepts that are used in improvement projects. In lean the concepts are fairly simple. Reduce the waste and the value has increased. However, value is both multidimensional and differs over time. READ MORE

  5. 5. Systems Aspects of Increased Swedish Waste Incineration

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Jenny Sahlin; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biological treatment; incineration tax; waste management; waste import; value of households’ time.; waste incineration; district heating; MSW; landfilling ban; recycling;

    Abstract : Abstract Recent bans on landfilling of combustible and organic waste in Sweden have resulted in an increase in alternative waste treatment, especially waste incineration with energy recovery. This thesis elucidates how the current increase in Swedish waste incineration affects and is affected by the two systems to which it belongs: the waste management and the energy systems. READ MORE
