  1. 1. Life cycle assessment of a plus-energy house

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Tim Lohse; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Purpose: This study analyses the environmental impacts of a plus-energy house. Such buildings produce more energy in their use-phase than they consume, by generating energy with photovoltaic cells and saving energy via extensive insulation. The entire life cycle of the building is investigated form cradle to grave. READ MORE

  2. 2. The effect of Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and biostimulating algae extract on establishment, growth and development of Vitis vinifera : a field study conducted in Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Hanna Silwer; [2020]
    Keywords : Arbuscular mycorrhiza; biostimulator; crop physiology; mineral fertilizers; precision farming; Vitis vinifera;

    Abstract : About 23% of total global net anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) come from agricultural and forestry related activities. One of the largest contributors of GHG is the usage of nitrogen (N) and phosphorous (P) fertilizers, causing eutrophication and contributing to global warming. READ MORE

  3. 3. Magma-Carbonate Interaction and CO2 Release: A Case Study from Carlingford Igneous Centre, Ireland

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Emelie Lagrosen; [2020]
    Keywords : Magma-carbonate interaction; CO2; calc-silicate; skarn; marble; Carlingford; SEM-EDX; XRF; LA-ICP-MS; Magma-karbonat-interaktion; CO2; kalk-silikat; skarn; marmor; Carlingford; SEM-EDX; XRF; LA-ICP-MS;

    Abstract : Magma which intrudes into carbonate rich crust, interacts with the carbonate in several ways, for example by contact metamorphism and formation of marble or by metasomatism resulting in calc-silicate skarn. These processes release volatiles, such as CO2, from the carbonate and might thus cause climate change. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental study of the temperature profile in an iron ore pellet during reduction using hydrogen gas

    University essay from KTH/Materialvetenskap
