    Abstract : Considering the current resources scarcity, Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTP) should be adapted to become more sustainable. For example, it is possible to recover resources present in municipal wastewater. READ MORE

  2. 2. Risk of spontaneous fires at temporary storages sites for organic material, waste fuels and recyclables: Quantification and mitigation

    Author : Muhammad Asim Ibrahim; William Hogland; Ghasem Najafpour; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; temporary storage; risk of fires; spontaneous ignition; biofuels; recyclables; waste fuels; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : Economic and environmental constraints have created increasing demand for (material and energy recovery) and recycling of waste generated from households, commercial and industrial activities. A wide variety of materials waiting for sorting, recovery, recycling and disposal are stored at temporary storage sites (TSS) where physical, biotic and abiotic processes can lead the stored material to spontaneous ignition.

  3. 3. Sustainable Environmental Clean-up : Dynamic assessment for sustainable remediation of contaminated sites

    Author : Mehran Naseri Rad; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; contaminated sites; sustainability assessment; remediation; multicriteria decision analysis; system dynamics; contaminant transport;

    Abstract : Soil and groundwater contamination is an increasingly recognised threat to public health and the environment around the globe. New types of contaminants continue to emerge, and awareness of their threat, continues to develop. Many countries have national clean-up programs with priority lists of the most hazardous contaminated sites. READ MORE

  4. 4. Decision support for the implementation of low-carbon measures in the building sector

    Author : Nicolas Francart; Tove Malmqvist; Paula Femenias; KTH; []

    Abstract : The building sector is responsible for about a fifth to a third of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Therefore, a successful mitigation of GHG emissions over the entire life cycle of buildings is particularly important to achieve climate targets such as the Paris Agreement. READ MORE

  5. 5. Creating an environmental sustainability profession

    Author : Stina Månsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Environmental sustainability; practice; environmental managers; AEC industry.; hybrid institutional logics; environmental sustainability professionals; professionalisation processes;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis it to problematize the professionalization processes of environmental sustainability roles by studying how professionals in the Swedish AEC industry actively participate in the continuous creation of an environmental sustainability profession. This is done by investigating how the role of environmental sustainability professionals, as carriers and executers of an environmental sustainability agenda, has developed since the early 1990s, and how they are maintaining a momentum for environmental sustainability practice.
