  1. 1. Towards a Sustainable Resource Management A Broader Systems Approach to Product Design and Waste Management

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Jagdeep Singh; KTH.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Resource Management; Product Design; Waste Management Challenges; Systems Thinking; Sustainability Science; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : Rapid economic growth, urbanisation and increasing population have caused (materially intensive) resource consumption to increase, and consequently the release of large amounts of waste to the environment. Numerous technological and operational approaches to resource management have been introduced throughout the system of production, consumption and waste management. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Sustainability of Social Housing in the Urban Tropics: A Holistic Development Process for Bamboo-Based Construction

    Detta är en avhandling från Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Författare :Corinna Salzer; [2018]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sustainability assessment of buildings; Climate change mitigation and adaptation; Life Cycle Assessment; Philippines; Technology Development; Social housing; Disaster Risk Reduction; Bamboo;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is motivated by a tremendous need for more inclusive, sustainable and disaster resistant social housing in rapidly developing countries such as the Philippines. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the New Urban Agenda name the use of local raw materials as one area for action. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Re-viewing industrial energy-efficiency improvement using a widened system boundary

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Svetlana Paramonova; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : Improved energy efficiency in industry is important for reaching the targets within the EU strategy for increased sustainability. However, energy efficiency is not always prioritised within companies, and the improvement potential remains large. This paradox called an energyefficiency gap is explained by energy-efficiency barriers. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Towards Sustainable Bioenergy - Governance, Resource potentials and Trade-offs

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Oskar Englund; [2014]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sustainability standards; trade-offs; Bioenergy; biodiversity; governance; biomass potentials; certification;

    Sammanfattning : The global energy system needs to be transformed from fossil dependent to renewable, to cope with the challenges of resource scarcity and climate change. Bioenergy can play an important role in this transformation, but land is scarce, and uncontrolled bioenergy expansion could have unacceptable consequences. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Environmental preferences among steel stakeholders

    Detta är en avhandling från Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Författare :Stina Alriksson; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; conjoint analysis; environmental communication; focus group; light weighting; PLS; preferences; Q-methodology; risk perception; steel; stakeholders; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Sammanfattning : Emissions of carbon dioxide, dioxins, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter as well as use of non-renewable resources and energy are some important sustainability challenges for the Swedish steel industry. Much effort has been made, mainly by technical solutions, which to a high degree have decreased the emissions during the last 30 years. LÄS MER
