  1. 1. The Karma of Products : Exploring the Causality of Environmental Pressure with Causal Loop Diagram and Environmental Footprint

    Författare :Rafael Laurenti; Björn Frostell; Andrius Plepys; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Products; Environmental Pressure; Causal Loop Diagram; Environmental Footprint; Industrial Ecology; Industriell ekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Environmental pressures from consumer products and mechanisms of predetermination were examined in this thesis using causal loop diagram (CLD) and life cycle assessment (LCA) footprinting to respectively illustrate and provide some indicators about these mechanisms. Theoretical arguments and their practical implications were subjected to qualitative and quantitative analysis, using secondary and primary data. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Environmental levels of thallium : influence of redox properties and anthropogenic sources

    Författare :Ulrika Karlsson; Stefan Karlsson; Anders Düker; Roger Herbert; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; thallium; Tl I ; Tl III ; separation; ion chromatography; fresh water; sediment; mine waste; fly ash; redistribution; ICP-MS; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Thallium is a highly toxic element that humans are exposed to mainly by consumption of drinking water and vegetables grown in soil with high thallium content but also through inhalation of particles in the air. Thallium is also present in fossil fuels, alloys, and in electronic utilities. LÄS MER
