  1. 1. Environmental impact of a led fitting : A conducted life cycle analysis on a led fitting

    University essay from Jönköping University/JTH, Logistik och verksamhetsledning; Jönköping University/JTH, Logistik och verksamhetsledning

    Author : Mika Fröjd; Evelina Skårhammar; [2020]
    Keywords : Sustainability; Environmental impact; LCA; led fitting; Life cycle; use phase; end of life phase; transportation; Carbon dioxide equivalent CO2e ;

    Abstract : Purpose –The purpose of this research is to increase knowledge about how a led fitting impacts the environment. To be able to fulfil the purpose, it has been broken down into four research questions: • RQ1: What is the environmental impact during transportation? • RQ2: What is the environmental impact during the use phase? • RQ3: What is the environmental impact during the end of life phase? • RQ4: How can the environmental impact be decreased? Method: The authors worked abductive in the relation between theories and empirical data. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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
