  1. 1. 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

    Abstract : Syftet med den här avhandlingen är att förbättra möjligheter till miljöledning av järnvägens infrastruktur genom att utveckla en metod för att rikta in ansträngningar på att minska miljöpåverkan från infrastrukturens produkter. Metodens används i ett byggprojekt och dess robusthet blir testad. READ MORE

  3. 3. Industrial Ecology Approaches to Improve Metal Management Three Modeling Experiments

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rajib Sinha; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; system dynamics; element flow analysis; industrial ecology; product systems; end-of-life; DPSIR; pressure-based driver-oriented approach; environmental management; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Abstract : A linear model of consumption − produce-use-dispose − has constantly increased the pressure on the environment in recent decades. There has been a great belief that technology will solve the problem, but in many cases it is only partly contributing to the solution. For a full solution, the root causes of problems need to be identified. READ MORE

  4. 4. Systems Modeling Approaches to Physical Resource Management An Industrial Ecology Perspective

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rajib Sinha; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Complex systems modeling; environmental accounting and monitoring; en- vironmental footprint; industrial ecology; pressure-based driver-oriented approach; Modellering av komplexa system; miljöräkenskaper och miljöövervakning; miljöpåverkan; industriell ekologi; flödesbaserad övervakningaktörsorienterad strategi; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Abstract : Many of the present problems that we are facing arise as unanticipated side-effects of our own actions. Moreover, the solutions implemented to solve important problems often create new problems. To avoid unintended consequences, understanding complex systems is essential in devising policy instruments and in improving environmental management. READ MORE
