  1. 1. Emission reduction in waste incineration : A comparison of three applicable measures

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Byggteknik och byggd miljö

    Author : Adam Linde; [2021]
    Keywords : Waste; Carbon dioxide; Sorting; Requirement Specification; CCS; BECCS;

    Abstract : Utilization of waste as fuel for heat and power production is commonplace in Sweden, and the fossil emissions from the incineration of waste is primarily derived from the share of plastics in the fuel. Reducing the share of fossil material in the fuel should therefore lead to diminished local emissions. READ MORE

  2. 2. The effect of environmental policies on CO2 emissions - using the environmental policy stringency index

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Author : Elin Alexandersson; [2020-09-15]
    Keywords : Environmental policy stringency index; CO₂ emissions; panel data; fixed effects;

    Abstract : The carbon concentration in the air has increased by 50 percent since pre-industrial times and continues to increase every year. Climate change is, therefore, a significant challenge today. READ MORE

  3. 3. Carbon dioxide dynamics in agricultural streams : Investigation of two streams draining catchments dominated by agricultural land

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära

    Author : Albin Bostner; [2020]
    Keywords : Carbon dioxide; dynamics; streams; agriculture; oversaturation; metabolic control; hyrdological control; Koldioxid; koldynamik; bäckar; jordbruk; övermättat; metabolisk kontroll; hydrologisk kontroll;

    Abstract : In recent years, streams draining agricultural land has been suggested to exhibit high carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations when compared to streams draining other land-types. The transport of carbon from land to ocean is mainly occurring through the chain of inland waters, and with agricultural land today representing 40% of all continental area many of these inland waters are influenced by agricultural land.

  5. 5. Closed ecological life support systems : cycling of carbon, nitrogen and water

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Author : Hugo Persson; [2020]

    Abstract : Materially closed life support systems containing biological components that provide atmosphere, food and water for a human crew has been investigated for use in space travel since the 1960s. The internal cycling of organic material is the essence of these systems and their design and function is the question at issue for this thesis, which has been conducted as a literature study.
