  1. 1. Region-Specific Consumption-Based Environmental Impact: Hotspot Identification Using Hybrid MFA-LCA

    Author : Alexandra Lavers Westin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sustainable consumption; environmental impact; hotspot analysis; industrial ecology; Sustainable Development Goals; urban metabolism;

    Abstract : The environmental impacts caused by rising consumption are pressing problems for society today. Decision makers are tasked with setting and meeting environmental targets to ensure that future generations have access to the same quality of resources (like clean water and air) that we have today.

    Abstract : Bauxite residue, also known as red mud, is produced in large quantities as a result of alumina refining (the first stage in aluminium production), and is one of the world’s most abundant and important industrial wastes. As demand for aluminium continues to increase and space to store this residue diminishes, the potential to utilise bauxite residue as a secondary resource is increasingly being considered by the alumina industry.

  4. 4. Governing the European Asylum System at the Greek Border Islands

    Author : Alexandra Bousiou; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; ; Greek border islands; peripheralization; EU asylum policies; right to seek asylum; multilevel governance; externalization of asylum;

    Abstract : This thesis provides an understanding of the governance of the European asylum regime at the Greek border islands from a multi-level governance perspective. Lesbos, Chios, Samos, Kos, and Leros are the islands which, over the period of a year between 2015 and 2016, received 80% of all refugee arrivals to the EU, and were chosen as the loci of the so-called hotspot approach.

  5. 5. Lifetime modeling and management of transformers

    Author : Johanna Rosenlind; Rajeev Thottappillill; Zhong Dong Wang; KTH; []
    Keywords : transformers; lifetime modeling; asset management; thermal modeling; lifetime estimation;

    Abstract : This work have studied and developed lifetime estimation methods for the power transformer and how these could be used for asset management purposes. It is researchperformed in the intersection of the fields of reliability theory, statistical analysis, and stochastic process theory applied to lifetime estimations and management of transformers.
