  1. 1. Recycling of concrete in new structural concrete

    Author : Madumita Sadagopan; Andrzej Cwirzen; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; concrete recycling; sustainability; closed-loop recycling; recycled aggregates; compressive strength; workability mechanical pre-processing; secondary cementitious materials; green concrete; climate-optimized concrete; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Abstract : Concrete waste as crushed concrete aggregates (CCA) in structural concrete gives a new purpose and prolongs the technical life of the reference concrete accomplishing closed loop recycling. This research investigates CCA as aggregate replacement in an industrial reference concrete recipe as fine aggregate fractions and overall aggregate replacement. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mechanical Properties of Residues as Unbound Road Materials - experimental tests on MSWI bottom ash, crushed concrete and blast furnace slag

    Author : Maria Arm; KTH; []
    Keywords : residues; unbound materials; MSWI bottom ash; crushedconcrete; blast furnace slag; mechanical properties;

    Abstract : For recycled aggregates and industrial by-products to beused correctly in road construction, it is necessary to knowtheir properties. Existing material specifications and testmethods for aggregates used in Sweden and in many othercountries are indirect and are based on empiricism. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards an understanding of surface hydrophobization of paper - Exploring the effect of polymer nanoparticles, starch, ionic strength and process parameters

    Author : Frida Iselau; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; starch; ionic strength; paper hydrophobization; nanoparticles; penetration.; kinetics; charge ratio; temperature; aggregation; Surface sizing;

    Abstract : Paper materials are cost effective and lightweight, they can easily be recycled and their use as an alternative to plastics is advantageous from an environmental and sustainability perspective. However, competing with plastics for packaging applications is a challenge for cellulosic products. READ MORE

    Abstract : Paper materials are cost effective and light weighted, they can easily be recycled and their use as an alternative to plastics is advantageous from an environmental andsustainability perspective. However, competing with plastics for packaging applications is a challenge for cellulosic products. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cytoskeletal mechanisms in synaptic vesicle recycling

    Author : Jenny Gustafsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Synapse; actin cytoskeleton; synaptic vesicle; endocytosis;

    Abstract : This thesis explores cytoskeletal mechanisms involved in the recycling of synaptic vesicles. As an initial step it characterizes synapses formed by giant reticulospinal axons in lamprey and defines their use as a model system. The most common type of reticulospinal synapse, "simple synapse", appeared to be most suitable as an experimental model. READ MORE
