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

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Isabel Ordonez Pizarro; [2016]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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.

  2. 2. Towards sustainable solid waste management in Jordan

    University dissertation from Water Resources Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Mohammad Aljaradin; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Solid Waste Management; Public Participation; Recycling; Landfilling; Jordan;

    Abstract : Jordan is a country with a growing population that is undergoing rapid modernization. The increased volume of solid waste and associated logistical difficulties, the steady growth in the cost of waste management and the risk to human health are sources of concern. READ MORE

  4. 4. Leaching, filtration and displacement washing in a treatment process for MSW combustion fly ash - laboratory scale and plant studies

    University dissertation from Water Resources Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Magda Wilewska-Bien; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; washing; filtration; MSW; cyclone ash; : leaching; fly ash; MSWI ash;

    Abstract : Municipal Solid Waste combustion, as one of the waste management tools, starts to play an important role nowadays in heat and energy generation. However, MSW combustion leads to generation of other wastes - combustion residues, including ashes, which require a proper management. READ MORE

  5. 5. Accelerator-driven systems safety and kinetics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Marcus Eriksson; Janne Wallenius; Hamid Aït Abderrrahim; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nuclear physics; Kärnfysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Nuclear physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Kärnfysik;

    Abstract : The accelerator-driven system (ADS) is recognized as a promising system for the purpose of nuclear waste transmutation and minimization of spent fuel radiotoxicity. The primary cause for this derives from its accelerator-driven, sub-critical operating state, which introduces beneficial safety-related features allowing for application of cores employing fuel systems containing pure transuranics or minor actinides, thereby offering increased incineration rate of waste products and minimal deployment of advanced (and expensive) partitioning and transmutation technologies.
