  1. 1. Decision support for sustainable water security

    Författare :Karin Sjöstrand; Dale Whittington; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :decision support; water scarcity; water availability; water security; drinking water supply; multi-criteria decision analysis; sustainability; cost-benefit analysis; marginal abatement cost curves; risk assessment;

    Sammanfattning : Society’s large dependence on water, in combination with climate, socio-economic and demographic changes, places a massive pressure on our freshwater resources. As a result, water crisis, defined as a significant decline in the available quality and quantity of freshwater, is now considered to be among the most critical global risks to society. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Biogas Production from Lignocelluloses: Pretreatment, Substrate Characterization, Co-digestion, and Economic Evaluation

    Författare :Anna Teghammar; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; economic evaluation.; biogas; pretreatment; co-digestion; lignocellulose; substrate characterization; anaerobic digestion; economic evaluation; Biotechnology;

    Sammanfattning : Biogas production from organic materials can be used as a renewable vehicle fuel, provide heat and generate electricity and can thereby reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. This thesis focuses on the biogas production based on lignocelluloses. There is an abundant availability of lignocelluloses, constituting 50% of the total biomass worldwide. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Involving individuals in the manufacturing strategy formation: Strategic consensus among workers and managers

    Författare :Nina Edh Mirzaei; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; strategic consensus; workers; behavioural operations; Manufacturing strategy; managers;

    Sammanfattning : Decisions made and actions taken by individuals in the operations function impact the formation of a company’s manufacturing strategy (MS). Therefore, it is important that the MS is understood and agreed on by all employees, that is, strategic consensus among the individuals in the operations function is essential. LÄS MER

  4. 4. 'Getting' it Together In Joint Directed Action

    Författare :Christina Mauléon; Philippe Lorino; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; emotion; interpretational-relational; language discourse; Joint Directed Action; meaning making sensemaking; quality sciences; relational landscape; identity; action.; relational landscape identity; action;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is focused upon investigating how come activities in organizations are sometimes not aligned with an objective at hand, be it a project goal, safety, quality or other. When something goes wrong, where are the answers to be found? In the pursuit to examine these questions further, the aim of the thesis has been to investigate meaning making in action as this can increase an understanding of how actors may continuously align their actions, collective and/or individual, with a common goal – this process here being called Joint Directed Action (JDA).

  5. 5. Lipid-based liquid crystals as drug delivery vehicles for antimicrobial peptides

    Författare :Lukas Boge; Martin Andersson; Lovisa Ringstad; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; infection; phase behavior; antimicrobial effect; Liquid crystals; hexosome; antimicrobial resistance; AMP; antimicrobial peptide; pulmonary delivery; topical delivery; glycerol monooleate; bacterial membrane; cubosome; liquid crystalline nanoparticles; membrane interaction; proteolysis;

    Sammanfattning : The development of antimicrobial resistance is a great challenge within health sectors worldwide. Thus, demand for new, efficient treatments is urgent in order to treat various bacterial infections. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are a group of antibiotics that have gained more and more attraction in the past decade. LÄS MER
