  1. 1. Technical Alternatives and Energy in LCA

    Författare :Carina Rehnström; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Sammanfattning : This licentiate thesis is based on two papers, a comparative LCA case study paper and a paper on energy issues in LCA. A case study was done in order to investigate which of two compared technologies for chemical recovery in the pulp industry (recovery boiler, RB, or black liquor gasification, BLG) is environmentally favourable.

  2. 2. Food, energy and the environment from a Swedish perspective

    Författare :Rebecka Engström; Göran Finnveden; Roland Clift; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Input-Output Analysis; Life Cycle Assessment; Sector; Consumption changes; Energy Analysis; Food Losses; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Sammanfattning : Det särskilda sektorsansvaret är en ordning inom miljöpolitiken som innebär att varje sektor har ansvar för att hantera de miljöproblem som orsakas inom sektorn. På grund av detta ansvar finns ett behov av att kartlägga miljöproblem från sektorer, att identifiera de viktigaste problemen och att hitta strategier för att minska miljöpåverkan. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Environmental Assessment of Air-conditioning Systems in Offices. Some Aspects Related to Design

    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; air-conditioning; office buildings; environmental assessment; flexibility; weighting methods; comfort cooling system; energy efficiency; environmental performance; HVAC systems; life cycle assessment;

    Sammanfattning : The primary function of an air-conditioning system, i.e. to fulfil given requirements on indoor climate in a specific building, can generally be achieved by several system designs. The systems may have varying environmental performance. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On the impact of noise and energy demand from traffic : An assessment using microscopic modelling

    Författare :Johan Nygren; Susann Boij; Romain Rumpler; Ciarán J. O'Reilly; Arnaud Can; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Traffic simulation; sustainable transport; noise emissions; environmental impact; energy efficiency; Trafiksimulering; hållbar transport; buller; miljöpåverkan; energieffektivitet; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Noise emissions from transportation remain one of the greatest environmental issues of modern day. Inhabitants in urban environments are especially exposed, with almost 80 million people in the European Union exposed to noise levels exceeding the recommended limits set by the World Health Organization (WHO).

  5. 5. Valuation of environmental impacts and its use in environmental systems analysis tools

    Författare :Sofia Ahlroth; Göran Finnveden; Lars Drake; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; valuation; weighting; ecosystem services; elimate change; impact assessment; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Valuation of environmental impacts in monetary terms is a both difficult and controversial undertaking. However, the need to highlight the value of ecosystem services in policy decisions has become more and more evident in the face of climate change and diminishing biodiversity in the sea and other ecosystems.
