  1. 1. Recycling Potential and Design for Disassembly in Buildings

    University dissertation from Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Catarina Thormark; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Arkitektur; interior design; Architecture; LCA; Environmental Assessment; Deconstruction; Disassembly; Design; Building Products; Recycling Potential; Recycling; Building Waste; inredningsarkitektur; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Abstract : Recycling as part of environmental considerations has become a common feature in architecture and building construction. Recycling of building waste can make a considerable contribution to reducing the total environmental impact of the building sector. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interest in Material Cycle Closure? Exploring Evolution of Industry's Responses to High-grade Recycling from an Industrial Ecology Perspective

    University dissertation from The International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics

    Author : Philip Peck; [2003]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; polymers; vehicles; ELV; extended producer responsibility; chemical recycling; material cycling; material flows; closed-loop recycling; Industrial Ecology; recycling; aluminium.; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Abstract : Many anthropogenically-produced or beneficiated materials contained in “end-of-life” products retain a great proportion of the invested manufacturing work when discarded. Very few such materials are reconstituted and applied in new products at the same material inherent quality level as in their first lifetime – a process known as “closed-loop recycling”. READ MORE

  3. 3. Designing out waste - Exploring barriers for material recirculation

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Isabel Ordonez Pizarro; [2016]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; waste sorting; sustainable development; Water; Waste; Urban; waste management; Resources; resource recovery; ​Recycling; designing with waste; recycling;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis has investigated what hinders material recirculation in society, to later suggest possible ways to support material recirculation in the future. Since material recirculation is proposed as a way to use waste materials for new production, it was deemed relevant to investigate two separate case studies that enabled recirculation from production systems and waste management.

  4. 4. Innovating Recycling of End-of-Life Cars

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Magnus Andersson; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; End-of-Life; Scarce Metal; Material Flow Analysis; Vehicle; Technological Innovation System; Car; Critical Material; Recycling;

    Abstract : There are currently a billion cars in use worldwide, and car design trends point at increasing variety in material utilisation. Cars today contain several types of steel and aluminium, an assortment of textiles and padding materials, and an increasing amount of polymers and scarce metals. READ MORE

  5. 5. Recycling of CIGS solar cell waste materials

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Anna Gustafsson; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrometallurgy; Pyrometallurgy; CIGS; Recycling; Solar cells;

    Abstract : The increased interest in solar power over the last few decades has led to a constant development of existing and new types of solar cells. One type of solar cell that is making advances on the global market is copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin film solar cells. READ MORE
