  1. 1. Research and reflections on European air pollution policy support models

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Stefan Åström; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Economic perspectives; Decomposition analysis; Policy support modelling; Short-lived Climate Pollutants; Climate metrics; Air pollution; International shipping; Economic methodology; Integrated assessment modelling; Cost-benefit analysis;

    Abstract : European emissions to air of SO2, NOx, PM2.5, NH3 and NMVOC still today cause harm to human health and the environment. These pollutants are associated with the premature death of ~400 000 people annually in the EU (25 000 perished in traffic accidents 2017). Improvements are expected but problems will persist.

  3. 3. Contribution of stormwater ponds for road runoff to aquatic biodiversity

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Zhenhua Sun; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; road salt; stormwater ponds; water quality; sediments; road runoff; metals; pond size; aquatic biodiversity;

    Abstract : The increased recognition that roads may impair the aquatic environment and ecosystems has led to a shift from conventional drainage systems toward blue-green solutions such as stormwater ponds. Research on blue-green stormwater solutions has until now mainly focused on water quantity and quality. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling of Substance Flows in Urban Drainage Systems

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Stefan Ahlman; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; urban stormwater; source control; modelling; diffuse pollution; BMPs;

    Abstract : Stormwater is recognised as a large contributor of toxic substances to receiving waters. Different measures to manage stormwater quality have been proposed, including structural and non-structural best management practices (BMPs). Computer models have become useful tools for the analysis, evaluation and design of these BMPs. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bark and charcoal filters for greywater treatment

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola
