  1. 1. Towards a Sustainable Resource Management A Broader Systems Approach to Product Design and Waste Management

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jagdeep Singh; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Resource Management; Product Design; Waste Management Challenges; Systems Thinking; Sustainability Science; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Abstract : Rapid economic growth, urbanisation and increasing population have caused (materially intensive) resource consumption to increase, and consequently the release of large amounts of waste to the environment. Numerous technological and operational approaches to resource management have been introduced throughout the system of production, consumption and waste management. READ MORE

  2. 2. Management of Sustainability in Construction Works

    University dissertation from Division of Construction Management, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Urban Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; construction works; assessment model; sustainability; Management;

    Abstract : The present global environmental condition is a consequence of the increasing consumption of natural resources whose depletion exceeds what is physically possible to sustain in the long term. The construction sector is a considerable contributor to this resource depletion and sustainability is adopted in the form of the theory of ecological modernization. READ MORE

  3. 3. Beyond Waste Management Challenges to Sustainable Global Physical Resource Management

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology
