  1. 1. Cradle-to-Gate LCA of Water Treatment Alternatives : A case study performed for Norrvatten’s future waterwork expansion

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Siddharth Selvarajan; [2021]
    Keywords : Life cycle assessment; Water purification method; Potable water production; Microbiological barrier; Activated carbon; Sludge separation; Livscykelbedömning; Vattenreningsmetod; Produktion av dricksvatten; Mikrobiologisk barriär; Aktivt kol; Slamavskiljnin;

    Abstract : Norrvatten is a municipal association which owns a water treatment plant capable of supplying good quality drinking water to the consumers in the associated neighbouring municipalities. After preliminary investigations for the future year of 2050, there were estimates which suggest a potential water quality degradation in the lake which supplies the raw water for treatment due to uncertain future climatic conditions and other forms of pollutions from the surrounding.

    Keywords : Pelagic fish; muscle; lipids; fish oil; pollution; purification; extraction.;

    Abstract : The Pelagic fishes are a wide group of fishes that live in the open water. They could be divided in two groups depending on the size, the small forage fishes and the large predators. These fishes swim regularly and have muscles with high lipid content. There are two types of muscles in the fish. READ MORE

  5. 5. Potential for mitigating GHG emissions at a Swedish wastewater treatment plant – a life cycle approach

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Nina Aldén; [2020]
    Keywords : GHG emissions; Wastewater treatment; Sewage sludge; Life cycle analysis; Mitigation; Carbon footprint; Global warming potential;

    Abstract : To meet the national and international climate goals every potential GHG mitigating effort needs to be addressed. The aim of this thesis is to investigate if the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), Ekebyhov, can reduce its GHG emissions by making changes inthe treatmentprocess. The main GHGs emitted from WWT areN2O, CH4and CO2. READ MORE
