  1. 1. Emission of greenhouse gases from constructed wetlands : Nutrient status in relation to methane and nitrous oxide emission

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Christian Lundström; [2022]
    Keywords : Constructed wetland; greenhouse gas emission; nutrient status; ebullition; Anlagd våtmark; växthusgasutsläpp; näringsstatus; ebullition;

    Abstract : Agricultural land releases large amounts of nitrogen and phosphorus to water bodies which causes eutrophication. Creating wetlands on agricultural land is one way to prevent this major issue. However, constructed wetlands are a large emission source of greenhouse gases. READ MORE

  3. 3. Life Cycle Assessment of Electric Road Systems - Climate impact in comparison with battery electric vehicles, biogas vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Miljö- och energisystem

    Author : Ebba Söderström; Emanuel Bengtsson; [2022]

    Abstract : One third of Sweden's total annual greenhouse gas emissions originate from the transport sector today and great changes are thus needed in order to reach the net zero emission target by 2045. One of the most important measures discussed is an increased electrification of the transport sector and a solution with potential to contribute to this transition is electric road systems (ERS), where vehicles are charged dynamically.

  4. 4. Bitcoin Mining in Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Miljö- och energisystem

    Author : Sixten Hager; [2022]
    Keywords : ASIC; Bitcoin; Bitcoin mining; proof-of-work; blockchain; district heating; heat recovery; climate change; Sweden; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Bitcoin mining is an industry which for many years has been criticized for its electricity consumption, which globally today equals roughly that of small countries such as Sweden, and its subsequent contribution to climate change. However, electricity consumption does not by default equals greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and not many studies have been done on the subject with a focus on Sweden, hence this study aims to provide some clarity to the otherwise opaque space of Bitcoin mining.
