    Abstract : Increased attention is nowadays devoted to waste management. The objective of this work is to analyse how commonly known business economic models and methods, as well as the Polluter-Pays Principle, can be applied to waste management in general and to waste fractionation in particular, so as to facilitate environmental optimisation of industrial and construction waste fractionation.

  2. 2. On Value and Waste

    Author : Peter Wallström; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Value; Waste; Marketing; Resource-based view; RBV; Civil engineering and architecture - Building manufacturing engineering; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur - Byggproduktionsteknik; Construction Engineering and Management; Byggproduktion;

    Abstract : Value and waste are concepts that are used in improvement projects. In lean the concepts are fairly simple. Reduce the waste and the value has increased. However, value is both multidimensional and differs over time. READ MORE

  3. 3. A process model for work-flow management in construction

    Author : Rogier Jongeling; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggproduktion; Construction Engineering and Management;

    Abstract : This thesis describes a novel approach for management of work-flow in construction, based on the combination of location-based scheduling and modelling with 4D CAD. Construction planners need to carefully design a process that ensures a continuous and reliable flow of resources through different locations in a project. READ MORE

  4. 4. On-site production synchronisation : improving the resource-flow in construction projects

    Author : Håkan Norberg; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Construction Engineering and Management; Byggproduktion;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a process model to support the synchronisation of work flow and resource flows in construction projects. The process model is based on a combination of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and construction management methods. Work-flow is defined as the flow of work on-site, i.e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Industrial Ecology Methods within Engagement Processes for Industrial Resource Management

    Author : Graham Aid; Nils Brandt; Maria Malmström; Enell Magnus; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Resource Management; Recycling; Stakeholder Participation; Industrial Symbiosis; Construction and Demolition;

    Abstract : The global use of resources such as materials, energy, and water has surpassed sustainable levels by many accounts.  The research presented here was explicitly normative in its aim to improve the understanding of, and make sustainable change toward highly systemic issues of resource management.
