  1. 1. Resource and Environmental Impacts of Resource-Efficiency Measures Applied to Electronic Products

    Författare :Hampus André; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; scarce metals; life cycle assessment; resource-efficiency; electronic products; resource depletion; circular economy; metal resource use;

    Sammanfattning : Natural resources such as ecosystems, land, water and metals underpin the functioning of economies and human well-being, and are becoming increasingly scarce due to growth in population and affluence. Metals are increasingly demanded for their specific properties as modern technology develops. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Integrated evaluation of resource efficiency and cost effectiveness in production systems

    Författare :Michael Lieder; Bengt Lindberg; Peter Almström; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; resource; efficiency; effectiveness; production system; evaluation; small and medium-sized enterprises;

    Sammanfattning : Improved use of resources is of enormously high relevance and crucial for achieving as well as maintaining a sustainable condition. Especially industrial production has a superior responsibility in creating a long-term viable way of living. LÄS MER

  3. 3. From resource efficiency to resource conservation : Studies, developments and recommendations for industrial implementation of circular manufacturing systems

    Författare :Michael Lieder; Amir Rashid; Tomohiko Sakao; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Circular economy; Circular manufacturing systems; Resource conservative manufacturing; ResCoM; Agent-based modelling; Multi-method modelling; Production Engineering; Industriell produktion;

    Sammanfattning : Manufacturing industry is under permanent pressure to maintain its economic growth and profitability as strong societal backbone. At the same time pressures of waste generation and resource consumption are increasing as result of manufacturing operations. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Simulation Modelling of a Shift to Service-Based Offerings : Resource efficiency and operational implications in the context of the circular economy

    Författare :Raphael Wasserbaur; Tomohiko Sakao; Erik Sundin; Steve Evans; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; resource efficiency; resource effectiveness; circular economy CE ; sociotechnical systems; systems thinking; simulation; product service system PSS ; system dynamics;

    Sammanfattning : The unsustainable levels of resource use and emissions of our economies and their threat to future generations are core issues of our time. The circular economy (CE) conceptualises a different type of economy that is restorative and regenerative by design and aims to keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value at all times, distinguishing between technical and biological cycles.

  5. 5. Setting priorities in health care : Studies on equity and efficiency

    Författare :Lars Bernfort; Lars-Åke Levin; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Health priorities; Health care costs; Health services; Health care sector; Efficiency; Quality of life; Hälsovård; Sjukvård; Prioriteringar inom sjukvården; Sjukvård; Prioriteringar; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Sammanfattning : The inevitable gap between needs and resources in health care, together with the problems associated with a market solution, necessitates priority setting. The aims of this thesis are associated with the process of priority setting in health care, and are divided into three issues:1. LÄS MER
