  1. 1. 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.

  2. 2. Beyond Waste Management Challenges to Sustainable Global Physical Resource Management

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Jagdeep Singh; KTH.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sustainable global physical resource management; global waste management; systems thinking; life cycle thinking; planning framework; global environmental justice; circular economy; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : Current physical resource management (PRM) was investigated in a global perspective in this thesis, to gain a deeper understanding of its implications in a sustainability perspective. In particular, the main challenges to the current PRM system and the kinds of systemic changes needed for sustainable PRM were examined. LÄS MER

  4. 4. 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

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    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
