    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Författare :Sara Stiernström; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ecotoxicity; ash; classification; leaching; Waste Framework Directive; CLP-Regulation; Hazard Identification; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Incineration of waste is increasing in the EU. However, in the incineration process, both fly and bottom ash materials are generated as waste that requires further action. A common goal throughout Europe is to find ways to utilize ash materials in an environmentally and economically efficient manner in accordance with the current legislation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. From Science to Policy Improving environmental risk assessment andmanagement of chemicals

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

    Författare :Marlene Ågerstrand; KTH.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; environmental risk assessment; chemicals; pharmaceuticals; transparency; predictability; accuracy; consistency; voluntary initiatives; ecotoxicity data; reliability evaluation; relevance evaluation; non-standard test data; CSR; risk management.;

    Sammanfattning : A complex process like risk assessment and the subsequent risk management decision makingshould be regularly evaluated, in order to assess the need to improve its workings. In this thesisthree related matters are addressed: evaluation of environmental risk management strategies,evaluation of environmental risk assessments, and how ecotoxicity data from the open scientificliterature can be used in a systematic way in regulatory risk assessments.

    Sammanfattning : The applicability of one selected method for indirect measurement of vitellogenin (Vtg) in fish plasma based on the quantification of alkali-labile phosphates (ALP method) to assess estrogenicity in water was investigated. The ALP method applied in this investigation was originally developed with Carassius carassius (Crucian carps). LÄS MER
