    Sammanfattning : Natural resources such as ecosystems, land, water and metals underpin the functioning of economies and human well-being, and are becoming increasingly scarce due to growth in population and affluence. Metals are increasingly demanded for their specific properties as modern technology develops. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Towards a Sustainable Resource Management A Broader Systems Approach to Product Design and Waste Management

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

    Författare :Jagdeep Singh; KTH.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Resource Management; Product Design; Waste Management Challenges; Systems Thinking; Sustainability Science; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : Rapid economic growth, urbanisation and increasing population have caused (materially intensive) resource consumption to increase, and consequently the release of large amounts of waste to the environment. Numerous technological and operational approaches to resource management have been introduced throughout the system of production, consumption and waste management. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Beyond Waste Management

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