    Abstract : If you are living in Sweden, you´re likely to consume around 15 kg textile every year (Palm, 2011). Of those 15 kg, 10.5 kg are most likely produced in Asia (IPCC, 2014). When producing textile, greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane are emitted. READ MORE

  2. 2. Possibility of enhancing algae drying by integrating infrasound.

    University essay from KTH/Industriell ekologi

    Author : YINGZI SANG; [2017]
    Keywords : Algae storage and preservation; Infrasound; Drying method; Sustainable;

    Abstract : With the aim of designing an infrasound-integrated technology which can enhance the algae drying performance, this thesis provided the theoretical possibility of using infrasound as an algae dehydration technology. To test the relation between algae drying speed and other three parameters namely sound frequency, sound pressure and sample mass, four major experimental groups including initial experiments and core experiments with fifteen sub-experimental groups are designed.

    Abstract : Because of the harsh climate of Saudi Arabia, residential buildings on average, consume more than half of the total consumed energy. A substantial share of energy goes to the air-conditioning of buildings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Study of spatial and temporal variation of atmospheric optical parameters and their relation with PM 2.5 concentration over Europe using GIS technologies

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Panagiotis Symeonidis; [2017]
    Keywords : aerosols; air quality; satellite remote sensing; GIS; geography; Geographical Information Systems; particulate matter; Aerosol Optical Depth; MODIS; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to examine the use of remote sensing aerosol data as an estimator of ground level fine particulate matter concentration (PM 2.5). In order to examine this possible relation, daily MODIS Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) data were used, collected for an entire year. READ MORE

  5. 5. Improving indoor thermal comfort in residential buildings in Nepal using energy efficient building techniques

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Byggnadsfysik

    Author : Isabell Borgkvist; [2017]
    Keywords : energy efficient buildning techniques; passive solar heating; insulation; Nepal; thermal comfort; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Research within the field of energy efficient building techniques applied on Nepalese residential houses are a rare sight. Previous researchers have studied vernacular architecture in the country in aspects of climate-responsive design, but it is hard to find case studies on how material or architectural changes can improve the indoor climate in specific house types and climate zones in the country.
