  1. 1. Assessing environmental impacts of a packaging product when transitioning towards Circular Economy

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Ted Forslund; [2018]
    Keywords : Circular Economy; Life Cycle Assessment; Eco-Design; Pallet; Packaging; Cirkulär Ekonomi; Livscykelanalys; ekodesign; förpackning; pall;

    Abstract : Packaging is a fundamental part of the life cycle of products and today´s life. Its purpose is to protect and maintain the function of the goods during different stages of the life cycle. Hence, the packaging needs to fulfil the functional demands to contribute to a sustainable life cycle of the specific product (Muthu, 2016). READ MORE

  2. 2. Hydrologic modelling of the Zackenberg river basin : an applied study using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2018]
    Keywords : Greenland; SWAT; High Arctic; Distributed Hydrologic Modelling; GIS; surface Water; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Since the 1980s, the Arctic has experienced an amplified warming of more than twice the rate of the global-mean, leading to large-scale changes in the Arctic hydrologic system, ultimately having cascading feedbacks on the global climate. However, few of today’s distributed models manage to capture the complex processes in Arctic hydrology, and therefore, the aim of this thesis was to evaluate the usage of the distributed Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model, to see whether it could capture the different surface water paths and processes characterizing the Arctic water cycle.

    Abstract : Vikten av energieffektivisering och hållbarhet i samhället har blivit allt mer uppenbar under de senaste åren på grund av ökade CO2-utsläpp, energipriser och den globala uppvärmningen. Europeiska unionen har som mål att minska utsläppen av växthusgaser med 20% och öka andelen förnybar energi till 20 % av den totala energianvändningen fram till 2020. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hybrid Renewable Energy System for Controlled Environment Agriculture

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Victor Garcia Tapia; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : With the expected impact of climate change and the projected population growth, the availability of sweet water and arable land will become increasingly scarce and the production from traditional agriculture processes will become insufficient to sustain the population. Controlled environmental agriculture (CEA) greenhouses represent a possible approach to deal with the challenges in the agricultural sector. READ MORE
