  1. 1. Choosing environmental policy instruments : Case studies of municipal waste policy in Sweden and England

    Detta är en avhandling från London School of Economics

    Författare :Åsa Maria Persson; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :municipal waste policy; environmental policy instruments; environmental policy; Sweden; England;

    Sammanfattning : European governments have during the last couple of decades shown an interest in new types of environmental policy instruments (EPIs) such as environmental taxes, tradable permit schemes and voluntary approaches, as opposed to relying on traditional forms of regulation. The interest in so-called ‘new’ EPIs (NEPIs) has led many governments to commit both to a more diverse EPI mix and to a policy process characterised by procedural rationality, in terms of considering a wide range ofalternative instruments and assessing them in a systematic and transparent way.

  2. 2. Designing out waste - Exploring barriers for material recirculation

    Detta är en avhandling från ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Författare :Isabel Ordonez Pizarro; [2016]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; waste sorting; sustainable development; Water; Waste; Urban; waste management; Resources; resource recovery; ​Recycling; designing with waste; recycling;

    Sammanfattning : This doctoral thesis has investigated what hinders material recirculation in society, to later suggest possible ways to support material recirculation in the future. Since material recirculation is proposed as a way to use waste materials for new production, it was deemed relevant to investigate two separate case studies that enabled recirculation from production systems and waste management.

    Sammanfattning : Popular Abstract in Swedish El-avfall (avfall från elektriska och elektroniska produkter) har under det senaste årtiondet blivit ett växande miljöproblem också i de mindre rika länderna (icke-OECD länder). Informell återvinning i u-länder har lett till att giftiga ämnen, som t.ex. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Conditions and constraints for waste management : collection, characterisation and producer responsibility in Sweden

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Författare :Cecilia Mattsson Petersen; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; collection; household waste; landfill ban; producer responsibility; source separation; waste characterisation; waste component analysis; waste management;

    Sammanfattning : Waste management has changed from being mainly a question of transporting out of sight to being an issue entwined in all parts of society, from product planning to the private domestic sphere. This has imposed new conditions and constraints for waste management, the description of which is the objective of this thesis. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Systems Aspects of Increased Swedish Waste Incineration

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Författare :Jenny Sahlin; [2007]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biological treatment; incineration tax; waste management; waste import; value of households’ time.; waste incineration; district heating; MSW; landfilling ban; recycling;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract Recent bans on landfilling of combustible and organic waste in Sweden have resulted in an increase in alternative waste treatment, especially waste incineration with energy recovery. This thesis elucidates how the current increase in Swedish waste incineration affects and is affected by the two systems to which it belongs: the waste management and the energy systems. LÄS MER
