  1. 1. Neutralization of acidicwastewaters with the use of landfilled Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) high-alloyed stainless-steel slag: an upscale trial of the NEUTRALSYRA project

    University essay from KTH/Tillämpad processmetallurgi

    Author : RAHUL PUTHUCODE; [2019]
    Keywords : Landfilled High-alloyed Electric Arc Furnace EAF slag; Slag neutralization potential; Slag recycling;

    Abstract : The landfilling of slag obtained from the high alloyed Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) steel making process, constitutes an environmental treat for society as well as an economical problem for the companies producing it, due to the costs related to waste management practices. Conventional methods of slag recycling are abundantly used among the steelmaking business, but due to their particular physical properties, high- alloyed EAF slags cannot be properly valorized.

  2. 2. Climate Neutral Management : Implement Circular Economy in the Construction Industry

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Science, Mathematics and Engineering Education Research (SMEER)

    Author : Linnéa Weinesson; [2019]
    Keywords : Circular economy; Project management; Construction industry; Waste management; 3R concept; Cirkulär ekonomi; Projektledning; Byggbranschen; Avfallshantering; 3R koncept;

    Abstract : The construction industry releases a great amount of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, uses loads of resources and generates a lot of waste. These actions are not sustainable, and the industry has therefore created a roadmap of how to become climate neutral until 2045. READ MORE

  3. 3. Energy & redox fluxes in Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17938 on different sugars

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi; Lunds universitet/Bioteknik

    Author : Katarzyna Bengtsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Energy; redox fluxes; Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17938; different sugars; applied microbiology; teknisk mikrobiologi; Biology and Life Sciences; Chemistry; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Under anaerobic condition the specific growth rate of Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17938 on different sugars, was analyzed using spectrophotometry. Electron acceptor (fructose) supported cells to cope with poor energy recovery by re-oxidising the NADH, thus enabling ATP formation thru acetate production, while fermenting glucose via the phosphoketolase pathway (PKP) and simultaneously operating via Embden-Meyerhof pathway (EMP).

  4. 4. Sustainable Drainage Systems Assessment and Optimisation-A case study for Lussebäcken Catchment, Helsingborg

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Bernard Nsabimana; Néstor Utande Estallo; [2019]
    Keywords : Hydraulics; hydrology; Sustainable Drainage Systems; urban; Modeling; MIKE URBAN; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Increase of urbanization and climate change are one of the factors that have been highlighted to influence hydrography. This is resulting in an increase in peak flow within an urban watershed. Downstream flooding and increased pollution are the problems that arises. READ MORE

  5. 5. Weight reduction of a connecting fitting used for frame assembly : A design optimization at IKEA Components AB

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för maskinteknik (MT); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för maskinteknik (MT)

    Author : Emil Sjöqvist; David Johansson; [2019]
    Keywords : design; optimization; design improvement; weight reduction; design for environment; DFE; material study; 3D-scanning; reverse engineering; FEM; FEA; finite element method; strength analysis;

    Abstract : Continuous improvements are an integral part for the development of everyday life. These improvements do not only ascertain financial gain but also lessening the environmental impact. READ MORE
