  1. 1. On sustainability assessment of technical systems : experience from systems analysis with the ORWARE and ecoeffect tools

    Författare :Getachew Assefa; Björn Frostell; Thomas Nybrant; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; technology assessment; interdisciplinarity; sustainability; sustainability assessment; industrial ecology; substance flow analysis; material flow analysis; life cycle assessment; Environmental engineering; Miljöteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Engineering research and development work is undergoing a reorientation from focusing on specific parts of different systems to a broader perspective of systems level, albeit at a slower pace. This reorientation should be further developed and enhanced with the aim of organizing and structuring our technical systems in meeting sustainability requirements in face of global ecological threats that have far-reaching social and economic implications, which can no longer be captured using conventional approach of research.

  2. 2. 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.

  3. 3. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Industrial Milk Production

    Författare :Merete Høgaas Eide; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :dairy; cleaning; sustainability; packaging; LCA; Life Cycle Assessment; toxicity; milk;

    Sammanfattning : Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) was applied to milk production and processing in a study of the Norwegian dairy industry. This method, LCA, is used to assess the potential environmental impact of a material, product or service throughout its entire life cycle, from the extraction of the raw materials, the production process, and the user phase, to the final disposal.

  4. 4. Towards Sustainable Construction: Life Cycle Assessment of Railway Bridges

    Författare :Guangli Du; Raid Karoumi; Håkan Sundquist; Helge Brattebo; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Life cycle assessment; LCA; Environment; Railway Bridge; Sustainability; Järnvägsgruppen - Infrastruktur; Järnvägsgruppen - Infrastruktur;

    Sammanfattning : Since last few decades, the increased pressure from the environmental issues of natural resource depletion, global warming and air pollution have posed a great challenge worldwide. Among all the industrial fields, bridge infrastructures and their belonged construction sector contribute to a wide range of energy and raw materials consumptions, which is responsible for the most significant pollutions.

  5. 5. Fibre reinforced polymer bridge decks: Sustainability and a novel panel-level connection

    Författare :Valbona Mara; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Bridge; Sustainability; LCA; Life-cycle assessment; FRP deck; LCC; Life-cycle cost; Connection;

    Sammanfattning : Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) bridge decks have emerged as a competitive alternative to traditional decking solutions for the refurbishment of existing bridges, as well as the construction of new ones, in the past two decades. FRP decks offer inherent properties such as light weight, high strength and high resistance to aggressive environments. LÄS MER
