  1. 1. Adding Fuel to the Fire : North-South dynamics in the geographies of transport energy: the case of EU biofuels

    Författare :David Harnesk; LUCSUS; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; energy geography; geopolitics; territorialisation; climate change mitigation; transport; biofuels; agrofuels; European Union EU ; certification; sustainability criteria; sustainability science; energi; geografi; geopolitik; territorialisering; klimatomställning; transport; biodrivmedel; biobränsle; Europeiska Unionen; certifiering; hållbarhetskriterier; hållbarhetsvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Since the 2000s, the European Union (EU) has promoted biofuels for transport to achieve climate change mitigation, and rural development in the global South. In contrast, critiques have argued that biofuel promotion impedes more meaningful mitigation while also resulting in dispossession of land and loss of labour opportunities in the global South.

  2. 2. The Use of Sustainability Criteria : In the Case of the EU Legislation on Biofuels in the Transport Sector

    Författare :Evgenia Pavlovskaia; Juridiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; miljörätt; biobränsle; miljöskydd; hållbar utveckling; hållbarhetskriterier; environmental law; Directive 2015 1513; Directive 2009 28 EC; transport biofuels; environmental protection; sustainable development; sustainability criteria; EU energy law;

    Sammanfattning : In the licentiate thesis, it is researched and analyzed how sustainability criteria may be used in a legal framework, with the purpose to promote and safeguard sustainable products and their production. The research and analysis are conducted on the basis of the EU approach to use sustainability criteria for biofuels in the transport sector, legally expressed in Directive 2009/28/EC, and its amendments in Directive 2015/1513.

  3. 3. Assessing the sustainability of bioethanol production in different development contexts: A systems approach

    Författare :Dilip Khatiwada; Semida Silveira; Faaij André; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bioenergy and biofuel; bioethanol industry; development trend; sustainability assessment; climate change mitigation; energy security; life cycle assessment; systems optimisation; bioenergi och biobränsle; bioetanolindustri; utvecklingstrender; hållbarhetsbedömning; motverka klimatförändringar; energisäkerhet; livscykelanalys; systemoptimering; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Sammanfattning : The continuous depletion of fossil fuel reserves, the global agenda on climate change and threats to energy security have led to increased global interest in the exploration, production and utilisation of bioenergy and biofuels. Access to modern bioenergy carriers derived from the efficient conversion of locally available biomass resources is indispensable for economic growth, rural development and sustainable development in developing countries.

    Sammanfattning : The production of biofuels has increased in recent years, to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels and mitigate climate change. However, current production practices are heavily criticized on their environmental sustainability. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Low-temperature Heating in Existing Swedish Residential Buildings : Toward Sustainable Retrofitting

    Författare :Qian Wang; Sture Holmberg; Natasa Nord; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Retrofitting; Low-temperature heating; Energy efficiency; Sustainability; Swedish residential buildings; Renovering; Lågtemperatursuppvärmning; Energieffektivitet; Hållbarhet; Svenska bostadsbyggnader; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Sammanfattning : As an energy-efficient alternative in cold climate countries such as Sweden, low-temperature heating (LTH) technology has shown promising advantages and shortcuts to contribute to the efficiency of heat supply, as well as to the overall sustainability of building performance. The goal of this thesis is to contribute to the development of methodologies and modeling tools to support sustainable retrofitting in the Swedish housing stock. LÄS MER
