  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.

  2. 2. A study of process planning for metal cutting

    Author : Staffan Anderberg; Lars Pejryd; Tomas Beno; Mats Andersson; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Process planning; CAPP; CAM; efficiency; performance; green manufacturing; sustainable machining; CNC; Produktionsberedning; effektivitet; grön tillverkning; Industrial engineering and economy; Industriell teknik och ekonomi; Manufacturing engineering; Produktionsteknik; Manufacturing and materials engineering; Produktions- och materialteknik;

    Abstract : Process planning as a function for competitiveness is often neglected. However, as an intermediary between product development and manufacturing, it holds a key function in transforming product specifications and requirements into a producible process plan. READ MORE

  3. 3. Gold-Based Nanoparticles and Thin Films : Applications to Green Nanotechnology

    Author : Pia Lansåker; Claes-Göran Granqvist; Gunnar Niklasson; Ulf Helmersson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; green nanotechnology; transparent conductors; nanoparticles; gold coalescence; substrate effect; temperature effect; Fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : The use of gold-based nanoparticles and thin films is very promising when it comes to improving several green nanotechnologies. Therefore, in order to further their use in applications such as electrochromic devices, photovoltaics, light-emitting diodes and photocatalysis, the aim of this work was to study the growth of gold-based nanoparticles and thin films.
