  1. 1. Chemicals in consumer products Bridging the gap between academic research and chemicals regulation

    University dissertation from Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University : Stockholm University

    Author : Linda Molander; Stockholms universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; consumer products; articles; chemicals; chemicals regulation; REACH; risk management; health risk assessment; non-standard toxicity studies; study evaluation; reporting guidance; endocrine disrupting compounds; bisphenol A; low dose effects; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Exposure to chemicals emitting from consumer products, such as clothes, electronic devices, toys and kitchen-ware, has emerged as an issue of public health and environmental concern. The use of chemicals having endocrine disrupting properties in commercial products is receiving particular attention as low dose exposures of such chemicals have been associated with adverse effects in both human and wildlife populations.

  2. 2. Chemicals in consumer products Towards a safe and sustainable use

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Linda Molander; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; consumer products; articles; hazardous chemicals; risk management; chemicals regulation; REACH; substitution; regulatory toxicology; European Union;

    Abstract : Health and environmental risks associated with emissions of hazardous chemicals from articles, including everyday consumer products such as clothes and toys, have become widely acknowledged internationally, particularly in the EU. This thesis contributes to new understandings of how these risks are currently managed within the EU and recommends actions for ensuring a safe and sustainable use of chemicals in articles.

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

    University dissertation from Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rafael Laurenti; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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

  4. 4. Fluorine mass balance in wildlife and consumer products How much organofluorine are we missing?

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Lara Schultes; Stockholms universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; PFASs; PFOS; fluorine mass balance; organofluorine; EOF; TF; wildlife; consumer products; combustion ion chromatography; high resolution mass spectrometry; suspect screening; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are a class of anthropogenic pollutants. Many PFASs are highly persistent and have been linked to adverse effects in humans. According to latest estimates, there are more than 4700 PFASs in global commerce, which poses immense challenges for environmental monitoring. READ MORE
