    Abstract : The process of finding a parking space can be a tedious task that drivers spent too much time on today. With the rising threat from global warming, reducing the time spent driving is vital. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessing environmental impacts of a packaging product when transitioning towards Circular Economy

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Ted Forslund; [2018]
    Keywords : Circular Economy; Life Cycle Assessment; Eco-Design; Pallet; Packaging; Cirkulär Ekonomi; Livscykelanalys; ekodesign; förpackning; pall;

    Abstract : Packaging is a fundamental part of the life cycle of products and today´s life. Its purpose is to protect and maintain the function of the goods during different stages of the life cycle. Hence, the packaging needs to fulfil the functional demands to contribute to a sustainable life cycle of the specific product (Muthu, 2016). READ MORE

  4. 4. Investigating the energy demand and supply of a residential neighborhood in Malmö

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Tianqi Wang; [2018]
    Keywords : Building energy performance; Solar energy; Micro wind turbine; Residential buildings.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Facing the climate change and the energy crisis, the governments are taking steps to reduce the energy use and enhance the integration of renewable energy installations. Built environment is attributed to 40% of the global energy use, and the literature indicates that integrating the local renewable energy sources to the grid and meanwhile renovating the buildings can significantly improve the energy performance of the building sector.

  5. 5. Hydrologic modelling of the Zackenberg river basin : an applied study using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2018]
    Keywords : Greenland; SWAT; High Arctic; Distributed Hydrologic Modelling; GIS; surface Water; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Since the 1980s, the Arctic has experienced an amplified warming of more than twice the rate of the global-mean, leading to large-scale changes in the Arctic hydrologic system, ultimately having cascading feedbacks on the global climate. However, few of today’s distributed models manage to capture the complex processes in Arctic hydrology, and therefore, the aim of this thesis was to evaluate the usage of the distributed Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model, to see whether it could capture the different surface water paths and processes characterizing the Arctic water cycle.
