  1. 1. Green Public Procurement : Legal Instruments for Promoting Environmental Interests in the United States and European Union

    Author : Jason J. Czarnezki; Jan Darpö; Roberto Caranta; Katerina Mitkidis; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; environmental law; procurement law; green public procurement; sustainable public procurement; eco-labels; life-cycle costing; comparative law; Public Sector Directive 2014 24 EU; neoliberal regulation; sustainability; private environmental governance; public procurement; market participant exception; commerce clause; dormant commerce clause;

    Abstract : While public environmental law, regulation and governance have paved the traditional road towards environmental and natural resource protection, the pathway has been expanded to include a broader orbit of interest areas and regulatory tools in an effort to achieve sustainability. Through the lens of comparative law and policy, this thesis evaluates one such expansion of environmental law—attempts to further environmental interests through public procurement in the European Union (EU) and United States (U.

    Abstract : Corporate sustainability comes in a variety of shapes and the boundaries defining what can be called sustainability are disputed. This thesis explores the making of sustainability at a medium-sized company in Sweden, in this study called HygieneTech, that actively works with sustainability. READ MORE

  4. 4. Kind of turquoise : Effects of seafood eco-certification and sustainable consumption

    Author : Malin Jonell; Patrik Rönnbäck; Max Troell; Michael Tlusty; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; eco-certification; eco-labeling; seafood; aquaculture; shrimp; LCA; consumer behavior; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Aquaculture and fisheries hold promise for supplying a growing world population with healthy food produced without undermining the earth’s carrying capacity. However, just as livestock production and agriculture, seafood production can have negative environmental impacts and if a continuous or even increased supply is to be guaranteed, the pressure on affected ecosystems needs to be limited.

  5. 5. Emissions from realistic operation of residential wood pellets heating systems

    Author : Kaung Myat Win; Rebei Bel Fdhila; Tomas Persson; Erik Dahlquist; Henrik Thunman; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wood pellet; Heating; Combustion; boiler; stove; emissions; particulate matter; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik; SWX-Energi; Integrerade system för sol och biobränsle;

    Abstract : Emissions from residential combustion appliances vary significantly depending on the firing behaviours and combustion conditions, in addition to combustion technologies and fuel quality. Although wood pellet combustion in residential heating boilers is efficient, the combustion conditions during start-up and stop phases are not optimal and produce significantly high emissions such as carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon from incomplete combustion.
