    Abstract : The potential for recycling various polymeric materials contained within buildings constructed in the late 1960s and 1970s in Sweden was investigated during the course of this work. Three residential blocks were studied to establish the quantity of materials available for recycling, to investigate the difficulty in and time needed for the dismantling of the buildings, the degree of purity of the materials, and the possibility of separating the materials.

  4. 4. Optical Efficiency of Low-Concentrating Solar Energy Systems with Parabolic Reflectors

    Author : Maria Brogren; Arne Roos; Björn Karlsson; Andreas Häberle; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Engineering physics; Photovoltaic cells; Photovoltaic-thermal systems; Parabolic reflectors; Optical properties; Reflector materials; Optical efficiency; Accelerated ageing; Outdoor ageing; Building-integrated photovoltaics; Teknisk fysik; Engineering physics; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : Solar electricity is a promising energy technology for the future, and by using reflectors for concentrating solar radiation onto photovoltaic cells, the cost per produced kWh can be significantly reduced. The optical efficiency of a concentrating system determines the fraction of the incident energy that is transferred to the cells and depends on the optical properties of the system components.

  5. 5. Minimisation of Chromium Leaching from Low-Alloy Electric Arc Furnace Slag by Mineral Modifications

    Author : Ida Strandkvist; Fredrik Engström; Rainer Backman; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : Iron and steel are produced continuously as a vital part of modern life. The largest by-product of metal production is slag. Slag is an essential part of the production of steel since, in the furnace, the molten slag removes impurities from the metal. When the slag which consists of oxides, solidifies minerals form.
