  1. 1. In vitro study of Biodegradation in Mg-alloys by Isothermal Calorimetry

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Industriell Produktion

    Author : Prasad Rajendra Kekare; Akshat Kulkarni; [2021]
    Keywords : Isothermal Calorimetry; Degradation of Mg Alloys; Supersaturated solid solution SSSS ; Corrosion rate; Aqueous corrosion.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Magnesium corrosion in an aqueous environment is a multi-layer, complex process. A literature survey shows significant gaps and the modelling work reported indicates a lack of clarity in understanding the corrosion process. READ MORE

  2. 2. Life Cycle Analysis of three polystyrene waste scenarios : Biodegradation by mealworms as an alternative to incineration or recycling of polystyrene waste?

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Institutionen för ekoteknik- och hållbart byggande

    Author : Laurens Post; [2020]
    Keywords : Polystyrene; Waste management; Recycling; Incineration; Biodegradation; Mealworms; Life Cycle Analysis;

    Abstract : In this research three waste scenario’s for polystyrene plastic are analysed and compared from an environmental perspective. Incineration, recycling and biodegradation by mealworms (Tenebrio Monitor Linnaeus) of polystyrene are to be compared through a gate to grave Life Cycle Analysis. READ MORE

  3. 3. The possibilities of recycling wash water at Vidinge

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Julia Mauritzson; [2020]
    Keywords : reuse; treatment; fresh-cut; water engineering; environmental engineering; avloppsteknik; vattenförsörjningsteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Water is a resource of importance and with drier weather around the world, including Swe-den, there is a risk of too low levels of water to satisfy for instance households, animals and industries in the future. Fresh-cut fruit and vegetable industries are water intense and almost all process water is used in the washing process. READ MORE

  4. 4. The biodegradable straw - Investigating how enzymes can be used to enhance desired product qualities of drinking devices.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Produktutveckling

    Author : Charlotte Parnefjord Gustafsson; Hanna Liang; [2020]
    Keywords : biodegradable; bioplastics; drinking devices; enzymes; fibre material; PHA; product design; statistical analysis; straws; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The increasing production of single-use plastics negatively affects the climate. The resulting plastic ocean debris has fatal consequences to marine life. As a result, the European Parliament has placed a ban on single-use plastics by 2021, making it essential to study sustainable materials for single-use products such as straws. READ MORE
