  1. 1. MATERIAL EFFICIENCY MANAGEMENT IN MANUFACTURING

    University dissertation from Eskilstuna : Mälardalen University

    Author : Sasha Shahbazi; Mälardalens högskola.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Material efficiency; industrial waste management; manufacturing; Innovation and Design; innovation och design;

    Abstract : Material efficiency is a key solution to provide a reduction in the total environmental impact of global manufacturing, which contributes to avoid generating larger volumes of industrial waste, to reduce extracting and consuming ever more resources and to decrease energy demand and carbon emissions. However, the area of material efficiency in manufacturing has been under-researched and related knowledge is limited. READ MORE

  2. 2. On Value and Waste

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Peter Wallström; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Value; Waste; Marketing; Resource-based view; RBV; Civil engineering and architecture - Building manufacturing engineering; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur - Byggproduktionsteknik; Construction Engineering and Management; Byggproduktion;

    Abstract : Value and waste are concepts that are used in improvement projects. In lean the concepts are fairly simple. Reduce the waste and the value has increased. However, value is both multidimensional and differs over time. READ MORE

  3. 3. Circular Manufacturing Systems A development framework with analysis methods and tools for implementation

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Farazee M A Asif; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Circular economy; circular manufacturing systems; resource conservative manufacturing; ResCoM; system dynamics; Production Engineering; Industriell produktion;

    Abstract : The society today lives on the philosophy of ‘take-make-use-dispose.’ In the long run, this is not sustainable as the natural resources and the waste carrying capacity of the earth are limited. Therefore, it is essential to reduce dependency on the natural resources by decoupling the growth from the consumption. READ MORE

  4. 4. Advances in Thermal Insulation Vacuum Insulation Panels and Thermal Efficiency to Reduce Energy Usage in Buildings

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Thomas Thorsell; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vacuum insulation panels; VIP; serpentine edge; thermal bridge; composite film; gas diffusion; defect dominated; holistic approach; building enclosure; integrated testing and modeling; energy equivalent; field performance; air flow; thermal insulation efficiency;

    Abstract : We are coming to realize that there is an urgent need to reduce energy usage in buildings and it has to be done in a sustainable way. This thesis focuses on the performance of the building envelope; more precisely thermal performance of walls and super insulation material in the form of vacuum insulation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Material Solutions for Mitigating High Temperature Corrosion in Biomass- and Waste-fired Boilers - Utilizing Novel FeCrAl Alloys and HVAF-sprayed Ni-based Coatings

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Johan Eklund; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Waste; HVAF; High temperature corrosion; Biomass; FeCrAl alloys; Ni-based coatings; Silicon;

    Abstract : Combustion of biomass and waste for heat and electricity production is a promising alternative to fossil fuels and is thereby an important step towards a more sustainable future. However, due to substantial amounts of alkali- and chlorine-containing species as well as moisture in biomass and waste, the combustion of these results in a highly corrosive environment which accelerates the degradation of steel components in the boiler, drastically increasing the maintenance costs.
