    Abstract : One of the main polluting industries in the world with high environmental impact is the construction industry which also generates a huge amount of waste. To overcome the seburdens, we need to reduce the impacts through new solutions, technologies and by injecting circular economy concept into the industry. READ MORE

  2. 2. The effect of trade openness on CO2 emissions

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Author : Jacqueline Karlsson; Klara Paulsson; [2019-07-11]
    Keywords : Trade openness; C02 emissions; panel data; fixed effects; EKC; Pollution Haven; Samhällsvetenskapligt miljövetarprogram;

    Abstract : During the last decades, both trade and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have increased greatly. The plausible correlation between them is, therefore, an important question. The purpose of this thesis was to analyse the effect of trade openness on CO2 emissions. Using a panel data regression, 161 countries were compared over a ten year period. READ MORE

    Keywords : Building system; LCA; construction phase; CO2-equivalent emissions; multi-family houses;

    Abstract : This report was done on behalf of Uppsala municipality with the aim to investigate how much the CO2-equivalent emissions differ between different building systems during the construction phase, considering the different choice of material used in the frames. Several multi-family houses with different building systems were therefore studied and compared by using previous LCA from collected climate reports regarding each construction project. READ MORE
