    Sammanfattning : Bauxite residue, also known as red mud, is produced in large quantities as a result of alumina refining (the first stage in aluminium production), and is one of the world’s most abundant and important industrial wastes. As demand for aluminium continues to increase and space to store this residue diminishes, the potential to utilise bauxite residue as a secondary resource is increasingly being considered by the alumina industry.

    Författare :Emma Rex; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Green marketing; LCA practice; Organisational theory; Interpretive research; Industry practices; Life cycle thinking LCT ; Sensemaking; Life cycle management LCM ; Functionalist research; Environmental management;

    Sammanfattning : The concept of “life cycle thinking” creates possibilities for major improve¬ments in environ¬mental performance, but compels companies to look beyond their own immediate sites and operations to consider the broader picture of their products’ or services’ environmental impact. This thesis seeks to explore company attempts to implement such life cycle thinking (LCT), and how this connects with their self-inte¬rest in terms of market success. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Life Cycle Assessment and Decision Making: Theories and Practices

    Författare :Henrikke Baumann; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; life cycle assessment; LCA practice; LCA methodology; LCA modelling; institutionalisation; LCA procedure; life cycle accounting; LCA; systems analysis; decision making;

    Sammanfattning : Life cycle assessment (LCA) has been in use to a varying extent since the late 1960s. The fact that LCA methodology needs further development is a frequently identified barrier to the further application of LCA. Consequently, the literature with suggestions for improving LCA methodology is extensive. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Premises for Linking Life Cycle Considerations with Marketing

    Författare :Emma Rex; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; life cycle thinking LCT ; life cycle assessment LCA ; ecolabelling; green marketing; environmental management; qualitative field studies;

    Sammanfattning : There is increased recognition in society about the urgency of taking life cycle considerations into account in industry, and a desire to let the market be a driving force in this process. Yet little is known about why companies engage in life cycle considerations and about the environmental interaction with the market. LÄS MER
