  1. 1. Flow-oriented studies for environmental management by local authorities : experiences from a regional substance flow analysis

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Annica Lindqvist-Östblom; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; flow-oriented studies; material flow analysis; substance flow analysis; interpretation; local authorities; regional authorities; environmental management; cadmium; sewage;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the issue of how to perform flow-oriented studies in order to become more useful for and adapted to local/regional authorities. Compared to traditional environmental monitoring and measurement of the state of the environment, flow-oriented studies are an attempt to broaden the approach to environmental concerns. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Anna Björklund; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP 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.

  4. 4. On sustainability assessment of technical systems experience from systems analysis with the ORWARE and ecoeffect tools

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Getachew Assefa; Björn Frostell; Thomas Nybrant; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; technology assessment; interdisciplinarity; sustainability; sustainability assessment; industrial ecology; substance flow analysis; material flow analysis; life cycle assessment; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Environmental engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Engineering research and development work is undergoing a reorientation from focusing on specific parts of different systems to a broader perspective of systems level, albeit at a slower pace. This reorientation should be further developed and enhanced with the aim of organizing and structuring our technical systems in meeting sustainability requirements in face of global ecological threats that have far-reaching social and economic implications, which can no longer be captured using conventional approach of research.
