  1. 16. Natural resources and sustainable energy Growth rates and resource flows for low-carbon systems

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Simon Davidsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; low-carbon technology; renewable energy; energy transitions; critical materials; energy metals; material flows; net energy; EROI; life cycle assessment; LCA; growth curves; curve fitting; resource depletion; Natural Resources and Sustainable Development; Naturresurser och hållbar utveckling;

    Abstract : Large-scale deployment of low-carbon energy technologies is important for counteracting anthropogenic climate change and achieving universal energy access. This thesis explores potential growth rates of technologies necessary to reach a more sustainable global energy system, the material and energy flows required to commission these technologies, and potential future availability of the required resources.

  2. 17. World oil supply and unconventional resources Bottom-up perspectives on tight oil production

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of Earth Sciences

    Author : Henrik Wachtmeister; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; oil supply; oil production; unconventional resources; tight oil; shale oil; bottom-up model; projections; Natural Resources and Sustainable Development; Naturresurser och hållbar utveckling;

    Abstract : Oil is the world’s largest primary energy source. It dominates the transportation sector which underpins the world economy. Yet, oil is a nonrenewable resource, destined not to last forever. In the mid-2000s global conventional oil production stagnated, leading to rising oil prices and fears of permanent oil scarcity.

  3. 18. Systems Analysis for Eco-Industrial Development : Applied on Cement and Biogas Production Systems

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Roozbeh Feiz; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; industrial ecology; eco-industrial development; multi-criteria analysis; life-cycle assessment; MCA; LCA; uncertainty management; systems analysis; industrial symbiosis; cement; biogas; cement production; biogas solutions;

    Abstract : Our industrial systems are not sustainable—a major challenge which demands several types of responses. Eco-industrial development can be seen as such a response, with the goal to establish industrial systems that are both ecological and economical. Industrial Ecology is another closely related response. READ MORE

  4. 19. “Count on me!” Mathematical development, developmental dyscalculia and computer-based intervention

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Linda Olsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; mathematical development; symbolic number processing; Approximate number system; developmental dyscalculia; computer-based intervention; matematisk utveckling; symboliskt nummerprocessande; Approximativa nummersystemet; dyskalkyli; datorbaserad intervention;

    Abstract : A “sense” of number can be found across species, yet only humans supplement it with exact and symbolic number, such as number words and digits. However, what abilities leads to successful or unsuccessful arithmetic proficiency is still debated. READ MORE

    Abstract : Where does my individual responsibility for the environment start and end? Should I be responsible for environmental stress in India only because my shoes were produced there, or for climate change that endangers species in Antarctica, or rising sea levels on Pacific islands which just might have been caused by my driving? What do I need to do if I think it is my responsibility? And how do I decide which is a better alternative from an environmental point of view? Who should I trust when deciding on what action to take, and what opportunities do I need for acting?This multidisciplinary thesis takes the politicization of everyday household activities due to environmental consequences, and individualization of responsibility, as its starting points. These points make it increasingly important to understand what responsibility individuals experience, and how they act in accordance with these perceptions. READ MORE
