  1. 1. Research and reflections on European air pollution policy support models

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Stefan Åström; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Economic perspectives; Decomposition analysis; Policy support modelling; Short-lived Climate Pollutants; Climate metrics; Air pollution; International shipping; Economic methodology; Integrated assessment modelling; Cost-benefit analysis;

    Abstract : European emissions to air of SO2, NOx, PM2.5, NH3 and NMVOC still today cause harm to human health and the environment. These pollutants are associated with the premature death of ~400 000 people annually in the EU (25 000 perished in traffic accidents 2017). Improvements are expected but problems will persist.

  2. 2. Systems Analysis for Eco-Industrial Development : Applied on Cement and Biogas Production Systems

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Roozbeh Feiz; Mats Eklund; Jonas Ammenberg; Olli Salmi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; industrial ecology; eco-industrial development; multi-criteria analysis; life-cycle assessment; MCA; LCA; uncertainty management; systems analysis; industrial symbiosis; cement; biogas; cement production; biogas solutions;

    Abstract : Our industrial systems are not sustainable—a major challenge which demands several types of responses. Eco-industrial development can be seen as such a response, with the goal to establish industrial systems that are both ecological and economical. Industrial Ecology is another closely related response. READ MORE

  3. 3. From waste problem to renewable energy resource exploring horse manure as feedstock for anaerobic digestion

    University dissertation from Gävle : Gävle University Press

    Author : Åsa Hadin; Ola Norrman Eriksson; Karl Hillman; Nils Ryrholm; Jaana Sorvari; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; horse manure; environmental systems analysis; energy systems; renewable energy; environmental impact; anaerobic digestion; biogas; biofertilizer; systems perspective; bedding; incineration; composting; horse manure utilization;

    Abstract : A sustainable energy system requires, according to energy policies, reduced emissions of greenhouse gases, increased ratio of renewable sources of energy and more efficient use of energy. Horse manure could be regarded as waste, but also as a resource for renewable energy and plant nutrients. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sociotechnical system studies of the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from energy and transport systems

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Linda Olsson; Mats Söderström; Annelie Carlson; Magdalena Fallde; Elisabeth Wetterlund; Kes McCormick; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy systems; transport systems; greenhouse gas emissions; energy policy; transport policy; sociotechnical systems analysis; wicked problem; Energisystem; transportsystem; växthusgasutsläpp; energipolicy; transportpolicy; socioteknisk systemanalys; wicked problem;

    Abstract : It is agreed that greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from energy and transport systems must be reduced. Technical means exist to reduce GHG emissions from these sources. However, these emission-reduction measures are not implemented to a high enough degree. READ MORE

  5. 5. How can consumables be made more resource efficient? Environmental and resource assessment of measures

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Siri Willskytt; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Life Cycle Assessment; measures; incontinence products; resource efficency; LCA; consumables; circular economy;

    Abstract : The global population growth paired with increasing consumption per capita puts resource efficiency and sustainability on the political agenda. Consequently, the need for resource-efficient and sustainable products, including consumables, is expected to increase in the future. READ MORE
