  1. 1. Towards a circular business model in the plastic packaging sector : a case study of Trioplast Industries AB

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Economics

    Author : Tahsin Ferdous Khan; [2020]
    Keywords : circular economy; closing the loop; innovation; recycled materials; sustainability;

    Abstract : Plastic packaging, a commonly used material across several industries and consumers. It is characterized for being affordable, versatile, durable and its high strength to weight ratio makes it a perfect fit for packaging material. However, this useful material also causes negative impacts on the environment, society and economy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Life cycle assessment of a plus-energy house

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Tim Lohse; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Purpose: This study analyses the environmental impacts of a plus-energy house. Such buildings produce more energy in their use-phase than they consume, by generating energy with photovoltaic cells and saving energy via extensive insulation. The entire life cycle of the building is investigated form cradle to grave. READ MORE

  3. 3. Self-levelling Platform Concept for a Winch-based, Single Point Absorbing, Wave Energy Converter

    University essay from KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Avd.); KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Avd.); KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Avd.)

    Author : Anton Bergman; Robin Eriksson; Lars-Fredrik Grahn; [2020]
    Keywords : Point absorbing; Self-levelling; Wave power; Winch-based; Nivellerande; Punktabsorberande; Vågkraft; Vinschbaserat;

    Abstract : This report covers a bachelor thesis project to design a concept for a levelling system to a point absorbing wave energy converter that uses a winch with a chain, which has restricted capabilities to bending and thus requires a system which compensates for this. First of all, a literature study was made to see if there were any technologies that could be used, and also a wide search for information about the wave conditions in the Baltic sea were performed to find what requirements would be necessary for the concept to be able to withstand the conditions faced there.

  4. 4. Evaluating the Environmental Impact of a Product : Partial Life Cycle Assessment

    University essay from Jönköping University/JTH, Logistik och verksamhetsledning; Jönköping University/JTH, Logistik och verksamhetsledning

    Author : Lina Ek; Sanna Ström; [2020]
    Keywords : CO2-eq; climate change; cradle-to-grave; environmental impact; footprint; functional unit; green production; LCA; new product development; supply chain; sustainability; sustainable transport;

    Abstract : Purpose – The purpose of this research is to investigate how manufacturing organisations can decrease their environmental impact in the supply chain. To meet the purpose, two research questions were formulated:  1. How can a manufacturing organisation reduce its environmental impact caused by transportation?  2. READ MORE

  5. 5. State of the art within life cycle assessments of lithium-ion batteries : an investigative study of key differences in previous studies and future needs of research

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Energy and Technology

    Author : Lollo Liu; [2020]
    Keywords : life cycle assessment methods; lithium-ion batteries; electric vehicle; environmental impact;

    Abstract : The use of electric vehicles has seen a rapid growth in the past decade as it is expected to have an important role in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector. The increased demand for electric vehicles has in turn amplified the demand for traction batteries, especially lithium-ion batteries. READ MORE
