  1. 1. Stormwater Ponds for Pollution Reduction

    Författare :Thomas Pettersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; suspended solids; reduction; pollution; stormwater pond; flow modelling; FEM; field measurements; heavy metals; nutrients;

    Sammanfattning : Stormwater transports particulate-bound and soluble pollution from urban areas to receiving waters during rain events. Measurements have shown that open detention ponds, originally used for flood control, effectively reduce stormwater pollutant load and have therefore been increasingly used for stormwater treatment.

  2. 2. Bioenergy, pollution, and economic growth

    Författare :Mattias Ankarhem; Runar Brännlund; David Stern; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Economics; Forest sector; Forest fuels; Dynamic factor demand; Adjustment costs; Economic growth; Pollution; Environmental Kuznets curve; Shadow price; Distance function; Nationalekonomi; Economics; Nationalekonomi; Economics; nationalekonomi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of four papers: two of them deal with the effects on the forest sector of an increase in the demand for forest fuels, and two of them concern the relation between economic growth and pollution. Paper [I] is a first, preliminary study of the potential effects on the Swedish forest sector of a continuing rise in the use of forest resources as a fuel in energy generation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Renewable Energy in Energy-Efficient, Low-Pollution Systems

    Författare :Bengt Johansson; Miljö- och energisystem; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hydrogen; ethanol; methanol; rape methyl ester; biomass; renewable energy; cogeneration; energy efficiency; scenarios; air pollution; carbon dioxide; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Sammanfattning : Energy use accounts for the dominating fraction of total sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx), volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. In this thesis, different strategies for reducing these emissions are evaluated, using a bottom-up approach. The thesis is divided in two parts. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Air Pollution Dependency on Climate Variability and Source Region : Past, Current and Future Air Pollution Scenarios over Europe

    Författare :Camilla Andersson; Hans-Christen Hansson; Christer Johansson; Joakim Langner; David Simpson; Peter Builtjes; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Acidification; Air Pollution; Climate Change; Europe; Numerical Model; Emission; Eutrophication; Key region; Nitrogen Dioxide; Particulate Matter; PM; Source region; Surface Ozone; Tropospheric Ozone; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : The main objectives of this thesis were to investigate the dependency of European air pollution on climate variability and emission source region. Calculations with a chemistry transport model (CTM) were conducted to investigate the influence of climate variability. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Air pollution in Nairobi slums : sources, levels and lay perceptions

    Författare :Kanyiva Muindi; Nawi Ng; Joacim Rocklöv; Elizabeth Kimani-Murage; Marie Thynell; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Air pollution; perceptions; slums; health impacts; Nairobi; Epidemiology; epidemiologi; folkhälsa; Public health;

    Sammanfattning : BackgroundAir quality in Africa has remained a relatively under-researched field. Most of the African population is dependent on biomass for cooking and heating, with most of the combustion happening in low efficiency stoves in unvented kitchens. LÄS MER
