    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; global phosphorus scarcity; peak phosphorus; global food security; sustainable resource use; food production and consumption system; transdisciplinary; systems thinking; global fosforbrist; peak fosfor; global matsäkerhet; hållbar resursanvändning; system för produktion och konsumtion av mat; transdisciplinaritet; systemtänkande; Water in nature and society; Vatten i natur och samhälle;

    Sammanfattning : The story of phosphorus began with the search for the philosopher’s stone, and centuries later the critical role of phosphorus in soil fertility and crop growth was highlighted. Eventually, phosphorus was implicated in the global environmental challenge of eutrophication. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Global Phosphorus supply chain dynamics: Sustainability implications for the 21st century

    Författare :Claudiu Eduard Nedelciu; Ingrid Stjernquist; Kristin Vala Ragnarsdottir; Birgit Kopainski; Pål Börjesson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phosphorus; supply chain; food security; circularity; systems thinking; system dynamics modeling; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Sammanfattning : Phosphorus is an essential yet irreplaceable macronutrient for agriculture and thus plays a key role in global food security. Most of the phosphate fertilizers are produced from phosphate rock, a finite mineral resource that is mined and processed at great environmental and social costs. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Management of ship-generated waste - illustrated from the Baltic Sea perspective

    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; shipping; fly ash; Baltic Sea; food waste; nutrients; leaching;

    Sammanfattning : Globally around one-third of food produced for human consumption is wasted or lost. Although the food waste issues on land are being widely discussed, the food waste generated on ships seems not to receive similar attention. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Bark and charcoal filters for greywater treatment : pollutant removal and recycling opportunities

    Författare :Sahar Dalahmeh; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Water scarcity, inappropriate sanitation and wastewater pollution are critically important global issues. Greywater is a sustainable water source for recycling, so this thesis examined simple, robust, low-cost alternatives for on-site treatment of greywater to irrigation water quality. LÄS MER
