  1. 1. Life cycle assessment in the development of forest products : Contributions to improved methods and practices

    Författare :Gustav Sandin; Magdalena Svanström; Greg Peters; Mats Westin; Annica Pilgård; Michael Narodoslawsky; RISE; []
    Nyckelord :; LCA; Life cycle assessment; wood; forest product; forestry; impact assessment; scenario modelling; end-of-life modelling; allocation; multi-functional; planetary boundaries; life cycle inventory; life cycle impact assessment; environmental assessment;

    Sammanfattning : The prospect of reducing environmental impacts is a key driver for the research and development (R&D) of new forest products. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is often used for assessing the environmental impact of such products, e.g. for the purpose of guiding R&D. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Bauxite residue, also known as red mud, is produced in large quantities as a result of alumina refining (the first stage in aluminium production), and is one of the world’s most abundant and important industrial wastes. As demand for aluminium continues to increase and space to store this residue diminishes, the potential to utilise bauxite residue as a secondary resource is increasingly being considered by the alumina industry.

  3. 3. Towards inclusion of Biodiversity in Life Cycle Assessment

    Författare :Emke Vrasdonk; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Impact assessment; Biodiversity; LCA; eDNA; Life Cycle Assessment; Sustainability; Reference situation; Land Use; Biodiversity conservation; Metabarcoding; Indicators;

    Sammanfattning : Biodiversity- crucial for ecosystem health and its products and services – is being lost at an alarming rate. While it is clear that human consumption is the main driving force of the considerable losses, conversion of natural habitats for production is continuing and the subsequent intensification of those systems is likely to cause even further biodiversity decay.

  4. 4. Life cycle assessment and life cycle cost analysis of a single-family house

    Författare :Bojana Petrovic; Ola Eriksson; Marita Wallhagen; Xingxing Zhang; Åsa Wahlström; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building; carbon-dioxide equivalent emissions; global warming potential; primary energy use; life cycle assessment; life cycle cost; Byggnad; koldioxidekvivalenta utsläpp; global uppvärmningspotential; pri-märenergianvändning; livscykelbedömning; livscykelkostnad; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Sammanfattning : The building industry is responsible for 35% of final energy use and 38% of CO2 emissions at a global level. The European Union aims to reduce CO2 emissions in the building industry by up to 90% by the year 2050. Therefore, it is important to consider the environmental impacts buildings have. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Advancing life cycle assessment of textile products to include textile chemicals. Inventory data and toxicity impact assessment

    Författare :Sandra Roos; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Chemicals; Textile; Toxicity; Life cycle assessment; LCA; Inventory; Impact assessment;

    Sammanfattning : Textile products are used by almost everybody throughout the world, fulfilling basic human needs such as keeping us warm and contributing to our social position. Every year the global textile industry delivers close to 100 million metric tonnes of new products to the market. LÄS MER
