  1. 1. Heat exposure and health outcomes in Costa Rican sugarcane harvesters

    Författare :Jennifer Crowe; Maria Nilsson; Tord Kjellström; Catharina Wesseling; Linda Forst; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Agricultural worker; Central America; Chronic kidney disease; Climate change; Dehydration; Heat; Heat illness; Heat stress; Sugarcane; Urinalysis; Worker health; folkhälsa; Public health; Epidemiology; epidemiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Background The remarkably efficient mechanisms of the human body to maintain its core temperature of 37°C can be inadequate when harsh climatic conditions and excessive muscle movement lead to heat stress, dehydration and potential heat illness, ranging from minor symptoms such as fatigue to a potentially fatal heat stroke. Agricultural workers in the tropics are at high risk, which is expected to increase with climate change. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Apply heat pump systems in commercial household products to reduce environmental impact : How to halve the electricity consumption for a household dishwasher

    Författare :Peder Bengtsson; Jonas Berghel; Per Lundqvist; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; household appliance; electricity consumption; heat pump; environmental impact; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Sammanfattning : In the household appliance industry, heat pump systems have been used for a long time in refrigerators and freezers to cool food, and the industry has driven the development of small, high-quality, low-price heat pump components. In the last few decades, heat pump systems have been introduced in other household appliances, with the express purpose of reducing electricity consumption. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Fjärrvärmekunders värme- och effektbehov: analys baserad på mätresultat från femtio byggnader

    Författare :Stefan Aronsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :district heating; small scale combined heat and power; building; measurement; domestic hot water; total heat consumption; substation;

    Sammanfattning : An extensive measuring project has been carried out by Gothenburg Energy which operates the Gothenburg district heating system. Over a period of 18 months, heat loads, water flows, temperatures, etc., were measured at 15 minute intervals at 50 substations. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Waste heat recovery in a cruise vessel

    Författare :Fredrik Ahlgren; Marcus Thern; Aykut Ölcer; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; whr; orc; ships; waste heat recovery; energy efficiency; cruise ships; Sjöfartsvetenskap; Maritime Science;

    Sammanfattning : In three studies of a cruise ship the author has investigated waste heat recovery (WHR)from exhaust gases using an organic Rankine cycle (ORC), and also mapped the energyand exergy flows within the ship. Data were collected from the ship’s machinerysystem for a total extent of one year, and this data were used for simulations andenergy calculations. LÄS MER
