  1. 1. Investigating off-grid systems for a mobile milking facility

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Energy and Technology

    Author : Musadag Mohamed Salah Eldin Elzein; [2021]
    Keywords : off-grid systems; renewable energy RE; Solar PV; biofuels; insight maker; HOMER;

    Abstract : This study examined the possible renewable energy sources that can provide the necessary power for a mobile Off-grid Automated Milking System (AMS) at a grazing pasture. This involved choosing the most cost effective, environmental friendly and sustainable mean for a mobile AMS which aims to be operating between months of May to September at a rate of milking 20 cows per day.

  2. 2. 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.

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. LCA of Low-temperature District Heating Network Components

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för Energivetenskaper

    Author : Nils Olsson; [2021]
    Keywords : District Heating; LCA; Life Cycle Assessment; Pipes; Environment; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Following the development of new materials and the continuous technical progress made in the construction and energy industries, district heating as a concept finds itself on the brink of a generational shift. One of the pioneering projects leading the way is the creation of Brunnshög, an modern and sustainable district under construction in the north-eastern end of the city of Lund, Sweden. READ MORE
