  1. 11. Contributing to carbon neutrality within water distribution services

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Nassim Dagher; [2021]
    Keywords : water distribution service; carbon footprint; GHG emissions; action plan; framework;

    Abstract : Water production and distribution services, just like all human activity, have an impact on the environment. One indicator of that impact is its carbon footprint, which corresponds to the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emitted due to that activity. In order to counter global warming, mankind must reduce the GHG emissions of its activities. READ MORE

  2. 12. Developing a Parameterized Embodied Emissions Calculator for telecommunication networks equipment (PEEC)

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Maël Madon; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Temperature on the surface of the earth has already increased by 1°C above pre-industriallevels. To have a chance to keep global warming under 1,5°C, greenhouse gas emissions fromhuman activities should be halved by 2030, reaching net zero in 2050. Every business sectoris concerned. READ MORE

  3. 13. Rotation of man-made floating islands : Evaluation of different design approaches to allow rotational movement in anchoring of a sustainable island

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för maskinteknik

    Author : Mathias Petersson; [2021]
    Keywords : Sustainability; rotation; complex anchoring; anchoring floating objects; man-made island;

    Abstract : Abstract   Background The sea levels have risen about 10 cm since 1993 and will continue to rise due to global warming along with the expected increase in population. The rise will decrease the available landmass for settlements and raw material production. READ MORE

    Abstract : Environmental sustainability is becoming more popular in the building industry. Sustainable thinking needs to be present during the whole construction process, from the idea phase to the final stages. READ MORE

  5. 15. Estimating active layer thickness at the high Arctic study site Zackenberg from remotely sensed ground subsidence

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Lotte Wendt; [2021]
    Keywords : active layer thickness; DInSAR; subsidence; permafrost; Zackenberg; CALM; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The active layer thickness (ALT) is an indicator of permafrost thaw, which potentially leads to the release of large amounts of greenhouse gases under global warming, and thus could further amplify climate change. The thaw depth of the active layer also governs seasonal surface deformation, caused by the volume change between ice to water, which poses risks for slope stability and infrastructure foundations.
