  1. 1. Cradle-to-Gate LCA of Water Treatment Alternatives : A case study performed for Norrvatten’s future waterwork expansion

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Siddharth Selvarajan; [2021]
    Keywords : Life cycle assessment; Water purification method; Potable water production; Microbiological barrier; Activated carbon; Sludge separation; Livscykelbedömning; Vattenreningsmetod; Produktion av dricksvatten; Mikrobiologisk barriär; Aktivt kol; Slamavskiljnin;

    Abstract : Norrvatten is a municipal association which owns a water treatment plant capable of supplying good quality drinking water to the consumers in the associated neighbouring municipalities. After preliminary investigations for the future year of 2050, there were estimates which suggest a potential water quality degradation in the lake which supplies the raw water for treatment due to uncertain future climatic conditions and other forms of pollutions from the surrounding.

  2. 2. Coliving in the Sustainable City - A study of coliving as a sustainable urban housing strategy in Stockholm

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för kulturgeografi och ekonomisk geografi

    Author : Ulrika Hafström; [2021]
    Keywords : Coliving; Environmental sustainability; Shared forms of housing; Sharing economy; Social capital; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : The challenge to limit global warming to 1.5°C requires substantial transitions in cities. Shifting consumer behaviours, property use and development are necessary to meet urban housing shortages and ensure a liveable future. READ MORE

  3. 3. Calibration of a Fast Neutron Time-of-Flight System

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kärnfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Armando Javier Morales Urrutia; [2021]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Future experiments with thermal neutrons at neutron facilities may encounter fast neutrons as sources of background. Understanding fast neutron behavior on an event-by-event basis in a detector is important for these complementary thermal neutron experiments. One way to study fast neutron events is by performing a time-of-flight measurement. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Modelling gross primary production in semi-arid regions: effects on carbon uptake of intensive agriculture in southern Kenya

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2020]
    Keywords : Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; GPP; Africa; Kenya; Land cover changes; Cropland; Remote sensing; Sentinel-2; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Background and aim: Gross primary production (GPP) is the largest global carbon (C) flux and an important component for counteracting anthropogenic CO2 emissions, understanding vegetation dynamics, and sustaining universal human standards. Africa plays a prominent role in the global C cycle, though our understanding of GPP dynamics is largely hampered by a paucity of ground-based observations. READ MORE
