  1. 1. Conditions and Constraints for Waste Management. Collection, Characterisation and Producer Responsibility in Sweden

    Författare :Cecilia Mattsson Petersen; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; waste component analysis; household waste; waste characterisation; source separation; collection; producer responsibility; landfill ban; 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. Energy efficiency, district heating and waste management : essays on environmental economics

    Författare :Alejandro Egüez; Runar Brännlund; Thomas Broberg; Patrik Söderholm; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; energy efficiency gap; principal-agent; split incentives; ownership; energy performance certificates; quasi-natural experiment; policy evaluation; district heating prices; natural monopoly; waste management; EU waste hierarchy; policy stringency; policy enforcement; Economics; nationalekonomi;

    Sammanfattning : Paper [I] investigates the energy efficiency of multi-dwelling buildings in Sweden to find out whether the ownership type matters. More specifically, we investigate whether rental apartment buildings are less energy efficient than cooperative apartment buildings and whether public ownership has a negative impact on energy efficiency.

  3. 3. Life Cycle Thinking and Waste Policy : Between Science and Society

    Författare :David Lazarevic; Maria Malmström; Nils Brandt; Nicolas Buclet; Karel Mulder; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Life cycle thinking; life cycle assessment; waste policy; waste hierarchy; coordination; conventions; legitimacy;

    Sammanfattning : This study investigates the application of life cycle thinking (LCT) and life cycle assessment (LCA) in the field of waste management from perspectives based in the social sciences. LCT is explored through the theoretical construct of regimes, drawing theoretical resources from a combination of the ‘pragmatic turn’, the economics of conventions and transition theory. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Towards empirically grounded guidance for resource efficiency: Applying, developing and synthesising environmental assessments

    Författare :Daniel Böckin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :synthesis; decoupling; guidelines; resource efficiency; Circular Economy; 3D-printing; Life Cycle Assessment; waste hierarchy; business models; Circular Business Models;

    Sammanfattning : Numerous solutions have been proposed to mitigate environmental damage, including resource efficiency and the vision of circular economy. Suggested solutions are often formulated as guidelines and heuristics like in the EU waste hierarchy, so-called R-hierarchies for resource efficiency and various guidelines for circular business models.
