  1. 1. The Pursuit of environmentally-friendly transportation: The role of two advocacy coalitions in developing emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles in the EU

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Gustaf Bergh; [2020-11-06]
    Keywords : heavy-duty vehicles; emission standards; the automotive industry; environmental concerns; advocacy coalitions; governance; beliefs; policy-oriented learning;

    Abstract : In recent years, the environment has become a central theme in the EU. Policies for protecting the environment have been adopted, while, at the same time, the EU has developed into a multi-layered political system subject to lobbying and maintaining of interests in the policy-making process.

  2. 2. Thermomechanical stress analysis of the main insulation system of traction electrical machines

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för maskinteknik; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för maskinteknik

    Author : Dahman Ismail; Alexis Andrei; [2020]
    Keywords : finite element analysis; thermo-mechanical stress; heavy-duty vehicle; electrical machine; insulation system; coupled-temperature displacement analysis; finita element analys; termomekaniska spänningar; lastbilar; elektriska motorer; isolering; termisk kopplingsförbindelse;

    Abstract : More efficiency heavy-duty vehicles are developed with higher range, updated electronic and mechanical parts. The fuel efficiency and pollution of carbon dioxide need to be lower to achieve new EU regulations. The global population increases with an increased number of heavy-duty vehicles. This, in turn, increases the emission. READ MORE

  3. 3. Integrating planetary boundaries into the life cycle assessment of electric vehicles : A case study on prioritising impact categories through environmental benchmarking in normalisation and weighting methods when assessing electric heavy-duty vehicles

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Ida Pehrson; [2020]
    Keywords : Life Cycle Assessment; Heavy-Duty Vehicles; Electric Vehicle; Normalisation; Weighting; Planetary Boundaries; Livscykelanalys; tunga transporter; elektriska fordon; normalisering; viktning; planetära gränser;

    Abstract : The transport sector is facing great challenges for achieving development within the Earth’s boundaries. Currently, LCA studies on heavy- and medium-duty vehicles have mainly assessed the ‘well-to-wheel’ stage and the impact category climate change. READ MORE

  4. 4. A sustainability assessment in the production of heavy-duty trucks : A case study at Scania: investigating the reduction of environmental impacts through design customization and LCA

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Liliana Isabel Celedón Cruz; [2020]
    Keywords : Design; customization; heavy-duty vehicles; sustainable production; resource consumption; environmental impacts; life cycle assessment; sustainability; Design; anpassning; tunga fordon; hållbar produktion; resursförbrukning; miljöpåverkan; livscykelbedömning; hållbarhet;

    Abstract : The transport sector is currently facing challenges to reduce environmental impacts during the vehicle’s operation due to its reliance on fossil fuels. The introduction of new technologies such as alternative fuels or battery electric vehicles (BEVs) are therefore rapidly growing because they can significantly reduce the vehicle’s tailpipe emissions.
