  1. 1. Environmental System Analysis of Waste Management : Experiences from Applications of the ORWARE Model

    Author : Anna Björklund; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; municipal solid waste MSW ; waste management; waste management planning; model; environmental systems analysis; life cycle assessment LCA ; substance flow analysis SFA ; substance flows; environmental impact; energy; uncertainty; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Waste management has gone through a history of shiftingproblems, demands, and strategies over the years. In contrastto the long prevailing view that the problem could be solved byhiding or moving it, waste is now viewed as a problem rangingfrom local to global concern, and as being an integral part ofseveral sectors in society.

  2. 2. Substance Flow Analysis for Environmental Managementin Local Authorities : method development and context

    Author : Annica Lindqvist; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the use of Substance Flow Analysis (SFA) in Swedish local authorities. The tool of SFA is often claimed to be supportive of decision-making, since it provides information about sources of emissions and relates these to actors and activities in society. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diffuse emissions from goods : influences on some societal end products

    Author : Jennie Amneklev; Bo Bergbäck; Hans-Bertil Wittgren; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arsenic; bismuth; CCA-treated wood; copper; material flow analysis; silver; substance flow analysis; urban flows; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : End products of society (e.g. sewage sludge and incineration ashes) can be used as indicators of the use of chemicals in consumer goods. Through upstream work the sources of substances released from goods may be identified before the emissions reach the end products. READ MORE

  4. 4. Tracing Copper from society to the aquatic environment : Model development and case studies in Stockholm

    Author : Qing Cui; Maria E. Malmström; Olle Wahlberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : diffuse source; source analysis; sediment pollution levels; urban lake; Copper; Stockholm archipelago; SFA; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Copper remains at elevated levels in the aquatic environment of Stockholm due to diffuse urban sources. Management of these diffuse sources requires their quantification but they cannot be measured directly by field observations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Systems Perspectives on Modelling and Managing Future Anthropogenic Emissions in Urban Areas : Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Carbon Studies in Stockholm, Sweden

    Author : Jiechen Wu; Maria E. Malmström; Daniel Franzén; Daniel Müller; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Anthropogenic emissions; Urban development; Future; Substance flow analysis SFA ; DPSIR.;

    Abstract : Managing anthropogenic emissions in urban areas is a major challenge in sustainable environmental development for cities, and future changes and increasing urbanisation may increase this challenge. Systems perspectives have become increasingly important in helping urban managers understand how different changes may alter future emissions and whether current management strategies can efficiently manage these emissions.
