  1. 1. LCA and LCCA in the design of geotechnical engineering works

    Author : Ida Samuelsson; Stefan Larsson; Johan Spross; Rasmus Rempling; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Life Cycle Assessment; Life Cycle Cost Analysis; climate impact; costs; geotechnical engineering; Livscykelanalys; Livscykelkostnadsanalys; klimatpåverkan; kostnader; geoteknik; Soil and Rock Mechanics; Jord- och bergmekanik;

    Abstract : Geotechnical engineering works are part of almost all construction and infrastructure projects. The geotechnical engineering work contributes to the impact on the environment and gives rise to costs throughout its life cycle. READ MORE

  2. 2. Assessment of sustainability aspects when making pre-renovation decisions

    Author : Karin Farsäter; Avdelningen för Installations- och klimatiseringslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ombyggnad; Livscykelanalys LCA ; Potentiell klimatpåverkan; Renoveringsbeslut; Refurbishment; Retrofit; Life cycle assessment LCA ; Climate change potential;

    Abstract : A considerable amount of Europe’s building stock needs to be renovated. The most common reasons for carrying out renovations are acute technical issues or the expiring life span of a building or its components. READ MORE

  3. 3. The role of biobased building materials in the climate impacts of construction : Effects of increased use of biobased materials in the Swedish building sector

    Author : Diego Peñaloza; Magnus Wålinder; Martin Erlandsson; Andreas Falk; Johanna Berlin; Dimitris Athanassiadis; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LCA; timber buildings; timber bridges; biobased building materials; dynamic LCA; climate change mitigation; building stock; scenario analysis; biogenic carbon; Byggvetenskap; Civil and Architectural Engineering;

    Abstract : A significant share of the global climate change impacts can be attributed to the construction sector. One mitigation strategy is increasing the use of biobased materials. Life cycle assessment (LCA) has been used to demonstrate the benefits of this, but forest complexities create uncertainty due to omission of key aspects. READ MORE

  4. 4. Life cycle assessment of transport systems and transport infrastructure : Investigating methodological approaches and quantifying impacts at project and network levels

    Author : Carolina Liljenström; Anna Björklund; Susanna Toller; Rolf André Bohne; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Strategier för hållbar utveckling; Strategies for sustainable development;

    Abstract : Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector is a key challenge to reach global climate targets and limit global warming to below 2 ºC. The use of life cycle assessment (LCA) may provide knowledge about the environmental impacts of transport systems so that emission reduction measures can be identified. READ MORE

  5. 5. New refrigerants for vapour compression refrigeration and heat pump systems : evaluation in a context of the requirements set by the F-gas Regulation and the Paris Agreement goals

    Author : Pavel Makhnatch; Rahmatollah Khodabandeh; Angelo Maiorino; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; refrigerant; retrofit; drop-in; HFC; HFO; F-gas Regulation; Kigali Amendment; Montreal protocol; Life cycle climate performance; LCCP; climate change; Energy Technology; Energiteknik;

    Abstract : Given the global commitment to reduce the impact of fluorinated gases on climate and the regulations controlling their use in the European Union (EU), this thesis investigates new refrigerants that have been recently proposed to meet the demands of the refrigeration industry in the EU, which must satisfy the legislative requirements of the F-gas Regulation and facilitate meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement.The legislative requirements of the EU have intensified refrigerant development with reduced GWP.
