    Sammanfattning : A well-maintained bridge infrastructure is a fundamental necessity for a modern society that provides great value, but ensuring that it meets all the requirements sustainably and cost-effectively is challenging. Bridge investment and management decisions generally involve selection from multiple alternatives. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Environmental Considerations in the Zero-waste Valorisation of Bauxite Residue A Life Cycle Perspective

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

    Författare :Peter James Joyce; KTH.; [2018]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Life Cycle Assessment LCA ; bauxite residue; waste valorisation; Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials NORM ; Life Cycle Thinking; LCA software; Circular Economy; Livscykelanalys LCA ; bauxitrest; avfallsvalorisering; naturligt förekommande radioaktiva ämnen NORM ; livscykeltänkande; LCA-programvara; cirkulär ekonomi; Planering och beslutsanalys; Planning and Decision Analysis;

    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.

  3. 3. Life Cycle Thinking in Environmentally Preferable Procurement

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH

    Författare :Elisabeth Hochschorner; KTH.; KTH.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Life Cycle Thinking; Life Cycle Assessment; Environmental Procurement; Life Cycle Costing; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Products generate environmental impacts during their life cycle by consuming raw materials and energy, releasing emissions and producing waste. A procurement organisation can be a considerable driving force for more environmentally friendly products e.g. by requiring that products meet certain environmental criteria. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Marketing for Life Cycle Thinking

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH

    Författare :Emma Rex; [2008]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; 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

  5. 5. Life cycle assessment in the development of forest products Contributions to improved methods and practices

    Detta är en avhandling från Gothenburg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Författare :Gustav Sandin; RISE - Research Institutes of Sweden.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; R D; LCA; Life cycle assessment; wood; forest product; forestry; impact assessment; scenario modelling; end-of-life modelling; allocation; multi-functional; planetary boundaries; life cycle inventory; life cycle impact assessment; environmental assessment;

    Sammanfattning : The prospect of reducing environmental impacts is a key driver for the research and development (R&D) of new forest products. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is often used for assessing the environmental impact of such products, e.g. for the purpose of guiding R&D. LÄS MER
