  2. 2. Household waste collection : factors and variations

    Author : Lisa Dahlén; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : Ambitious household waste recycling programs have been introduced in Sweden and several other countries during recent decades. Many different waste- sorting and collection schemes have been developed, but the evaluation and comparison of the results is made difficult by the lack of comparable data. READ MORE

  3. 3. Conditions and Constraints for Waste Management. Collection, Characterisation and Producer Responsibility in Sweden

  4. 4. Designing out waste - Exploring barriers for material recirculation

    Author : Isabel Ordonez Pizarro; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANITIES; waste sorting; sustainable development; Water; Waste; Urban; waste management; Resources; resource recovery; ​Recycling; designing with waste; recycling;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis has investigated what hinders material recirculation in society, to later suggest possible ways to support material recirculation in the future. Since material recirculation is proposed as a way to use waste materials for new production, it was deemed relevant to investigate two separate case studies that enabled recirculation from production systems and waste management.
