  1. 1. Enabling industrial energy benchmarking : Process-level energy end-use, key performance indicators, and efficiency potential

    Author : Elias Andersson; Patrik Thollander; Magnus Karlsson; Martin Patel; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy efficiency; energy efficiency potential; energy benchmarking; manufacturing industry; key performance indicators; industrial energy end-use;

    Abstract : One of the greatest challenges of our time is global climate change. A key strategy for mitigating the emission of greenhouse gases is the improvement of energy efficiency. Manufacturing industry stands for a large share of global energy end-use but has yet to achieve its full energy efficiency potential. READ MORE

  2. 2. The measurement of chemical persistence in the field by benchmarking : Theory and Experiment

    Author : Hongyan Zou; Michael McLachlan; Keri Hornbuckle; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; chemical benchmarking; persistence; half-lives; modeling; threshold benchmarking; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Persistence is one of the core criteria in chemical exposure and hazard assessment. It is often defined as the half-life for the removal of a chemical from a specified environment by transformation. Chemicals with long transformation half-lives may pose high risks for wildlife or humans and be subject to long-range transport to remote areas. READ MORE

  3. 3. The measurement of chemical persistence in lakes using benchmarking techniques

    Author : HONGYAN ZOU; Michael McLachlan; Carl-Magnus Mörth; Christian Bogdal; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; benchmarking; persistence; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The persistence of a chemical that indicates resistance to degradation is one of the core criteria for exposure and hazard assessment of chemicals. However, it is rarely measured in the real environment because of the lack of appropriate methods. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sustainable supplier selection in the logistics industry

    Author : Kamran Rashidi; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Inköp; Benchmarking; Logistik miljöaspekter; Benchmarking Management ; Industrial procurement; Purchasing;

    Abstract : Supplier selection has become one of the most crucial tasks in supply chain management, especially in the procurement function. In recent years, the importance of selecting the best possible suppliers has been enhanced due to the emergence of sustainability issues. READ MORE

  5. 5. Benchmarking Points-to Analysis

    Author : Tobias Gutzmann; Welf Löwe; Jonas Lundberg; Sibylle Schupp; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Points-to Analysis; Dataflow Analysis; Static Analysis; Dynamic Analysis; Gold Standard; Software Technology; Programvaruteknik;

    Abstract : Points-to analysis is a static program analysis that, simply put, computes which objects created at certain points of a given program might show up at which other points of the same program. In particular, it computes possible targets of a call and possible objects referenced by a field. READ MORE
