  1. 1. Choosing environmental policy instruments : Case studies of municipal waste policy in Sweden and England

    Author : Åsa Maria Persson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : municipal waste policy; environmental policy instruments; environmental policy; Sweden; England;

    Abstract : European governments have during the last couple of decades shown an interest in new types of environmental policy instruments (EPIs) such as environmental taxes, tradable permit schemes and voluntary approaches, as opposed to relying on traditional forms of regulation. The interest in so-called ‘new’ EPIs (NEPIs) has led many governments to commit both to a more diverse EPI mix and to a policy process characterised by procedural rationality, in terms of considering a wide range ofalternative instruments and assessing them in a systematic and transparent way.

    Abstract : Paper [I] investigates the energy efficiency of multi-dwelling buildings in Sweden to find out whether the ownership type matters. More specifically, we investigate whether rental apartment buildings are less energy efficient than cooperative apartment buildings and whether public ownership has a negative impact on energy efficiency.

  3. 3. Systems Aspects of Increased Swedish Waste Incineration

    Author : Jenny Sahlin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biological treatment; incineration tax; waste management; waste import; value of households’ time.; waste incineration; district heating; MSW; landfilling ban; recycling;

    Abstract : Abstract Recent bans on landfilling of combustible and organic waste in Sweden have resulted in an increase in alternative waste treatment, especially waste incineration with energy recovery. This thesis elucidates how the current increase in Swedish waste incineration affects and is affected by the two systems to which it belongs: the waste management and the energy systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. A System Perspective on District Heating and Waste Incineration

    Keywords : Energy recovery; District heating; Waste incineration; Waste management; Environmental; Material recovery; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Energy recovery by waste incineration has a double function as waste treatment method and supplier of electricity and/or heat, thereby linking the systems of energy and waste management. Both systems are undergoing great changes, mainly due to new regulations. READ MORE
