  1. 1. Conditions and constraints for waste management : collection, characterisation and producer responsibility in Sweden

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Författare :Cecilia Mattsson Petersen; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; collection; household waste; landfill ban; producer responsibility; source separation; waste characterisation; waste component analysis; waste management;

    Sammanfattning : Waste management has changed from being mainly a question of transporting out of sight to being an issue entwined in all parts of society, from product planning to the private domestic sphere. This has imposed new conditions and constraints for waste management, the description of which is the objective of this thesis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Household waste collection factors and variations

    Detta är en avhandling från Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Författare :Lisa Dahlén; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Waste Science and Technology; Avfallsteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Ambitious household waste recycling programs have been introduced in Sweden and several other countries during recent decades. Many different waste- sorting and collection schemes have been developed, but the evaluation and comparison of the results is made difficult by the lack of comparable data. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Turning waste into resources: Rethinking the way we discard things

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Författare :Maria Isabel Ordonez; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Solid waste; resource recovery; material loops; waste sorting; user centred design; design with waste; waste collection systems;

    Sammanfattning : Waste is one of the biggest challenges faced by our society. If not handled correctly, waste pollutes our natural environment with devastating results. However, it seems almost unavoidable that our society generates waste. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Designing out waste - Exploring barriers for material recirculation

    Detta är en avhandling från ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Författare :Isabel Ordonez Pizarro; [2016]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; waste sorting; sustainable development; Water; Waste; Urban; waste management; Resources; resource recovery; ​Recycling; designing with waste; recycling;

    Sammanfattning : This doctoral thesis has investigated what hinders material recirculation in society, to later suggest possible ways to support material recirculation in the future. Since material recirculation is proposed as a way to use waste materials for new production, it was deemed relevant to investigate two separate case studies that enabled recirculation from production systems and waste management.

  5. 5. Improving Model-Based Systems Analysis of Waste Management

    Detta är en avhandling från ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Författare :Mattias Olofsson; [2004]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; material recycling; modelling; import; energy recovery; greenhouse gas emissions; export; systems analysis; scrap markets; waste prevention; waste management;

    Sammanfattning : Model-based systems analysis is a tool to support decision-makers in the field of waste management. Of special concern in this thesis is the development of mathematical models for the analysis of the technological system. The aim of the models (here denoted WMS models) is to address whole waste management systems, i.e. LÄS MER
