  1. 1. Second-hand furniture and climate impact : LCA modeling to explore potential emission savings of reused furniture

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Kolbrún Fríða Hrafnkelsdóttir; [2022]
    Keywords : Circularity and decarbonization; Climate impact of furniture; Reused furniture; Furniture environmental impacts; Climate impact of second-hand; Second-hand products; GHG emissions of second-hand; Cirkularitet och avkolning; Klimatpåverkan från möbler; Återanvända möbler; Möblers miljöpåverkan; Klimatpåverkan av begagnade produkter; Begagnade produkter; växthusgasutsläpp från begagnade produkter;

    Abstract : A circular economy has been suggested to be able to respond to environmental challenges caused by over-production and consumption of products. Reuse is a circularity measure ranked high in the waste management hierarchy and is especially relevant for passive durable products such as furniture. READ MORE


    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Lucas Dewilde Cervelló; [2021]
    Keywords : Well-to-wheels; GREET; LCA; GHG emissions; Automotive fuels; Flex fuel vehicles; E85; Electric vehicles;

    Abstract : In this thesis the effects of two future greenhouse gas emissionreducing strategies in the passenger transport sector are investigated.Three factors were modelled for 2021-2055; The life cycle emissions offour vehicle types using a well-to-wheel life cycle analysis tool calledGREET, the growth curve of these vehicle types was analyzed andextrapolated to obtain total vehicle predictions and the mileage ofthese vehicles was extrapolated from existing governmental data.

  3. 3. Climate mitigation potential of the Swedish forest under different forest management regimes and levels of substitution effect

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Kristian Tufvesson; [2021]
    Keywords : Sustainable Development; forest management; scenario analysis; climate mitigation; sequestration; substitution;

    Abstract : The Swedish forest is currently being debated as to how it should be managed to provide climate mitigation. Forest management can contribute to climate mitigation in mainly two ways. READ MORE

  4. 4. CO2 capture in industry using chilled ammonia process

    University essay from KTH/Energiprocesser

    Author : Soumia Amara; [2021]
    Keywords : CO2 capture and storage; post combustion capture; chilled ammonia process; mono-ethanol amine; specific primary energy consumption; CO2- fångst och lagring; fångst efter förbränning; kyld ammoniakprocess; monoetanolamin; specifik primär energiförbrukning;

    Abstract : CO2 capture and storage (CCS) is estimated to reduce 14% of the global CO2 emissions in the 2 °C scenario presented by the International Energy Agency. Moreover, post combustion capture is identified as a potential method for CO2 capture from industry since it can be easily retrofitted without disturbing the core industrial process. READ MORE

  5. 5. Power-to-X-to-Power in Combined Cycle Power Plants : A Techno-Economic Feasibility Study

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Linus Engstam; [2021]
    Keywords : Power­to­X­to­power; Hydrogen; Ammonia; Combined cycle gas turbines; PEM electrolyzer; Technoeconomic analysis; Power­to­X­to­power; Vätgas; Ammoniak; Gasturbiner; PEM elektrolysator; Teknoekonomisk analys;

    Abstract : To support the large­scale integration of renewables in electricity grids, power­to­X­to­power (P2X2P) systems have been proposed. These systems serve to increase the flexibility of thermal power plants while potentially providing both economic and environmental benefits by allowing power from the plant to be redirected into an electrolyzer and converted to a gaseous energy carrier.
