    Abstract : Energy use in the European Union is increasing. At the same time, it is estimated that by the year 2050 most of the EU population will be living in currently existing buildings. Some of these buildings are or will be in need of renovation, and they have identified a target to reduce overall energy use. READ MORE

  2. 2. Assessing the sustainability of bioethanol production in different development contexts: A systems approach

    Author : Dilip Khatiwada; Semida Silveira; Faaij André; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bioenergy and biofuel; bioethanol industry; development trend; sustainability assessment; climate change mitigation; energy security; life cycle assessment; systems optimisation; bioenergi och biobränsle; bioetanolindustri; utvecklingstrender; hållbarhetsbedömning; motverka klimatförändringar; energisäkerhet; livscykelanalys; systemoptimering; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : The continuous depletion of fossil fuel reserves, the global agenda on climate change and threats to energy security have led to increased global interest in the exploration, production and utilisation of bioenergy and biofuels. Access to modern bioenergy carriers derived from the efficient conversion of locally available biomass resources is indispensable for economic growth, rural development and sustainable development in developing countries.

    Abstract : As the knowledge about anthropogenic impacts of climate change has grown, the awareness of the contributions from treatment of wastewater has widened the scope for wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Not only shall ever stricter effluent constraints be met, but also energy efficiency be increased, greenhouse gases mitigated and resources recovered. READ MORE

  4. 4. Organising matters for the environment: Environmental studies of housing management and buildings

    Author : Birgit Brunklaus; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; life cycle assessment LCA ; Livscykelanalys; environmental management systems EMS ; field studies; housing management; environmental assessment; buildings; passive house technology; action nets; organisation theory; Miljöteknik; environmental management; Miljövetenskap; Tvärvetenskap; Organisationsforskning;

    Abstract : Buildings give rise to several environmental problems over the whole life cycle. To reduce these, technical measures with focus on energy are commonly used. However, environmental problems are more than energy and cannot be solved with technical measures alone. READ MORE
