  1. 1. Automated Central Sorting of Plastic Packaging Waste – A Qualitative Study of Drivers, Barriers and Possible Solutions for Implementing Automated Central Sorting of Plastic Packaging Waste in Sweden

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Joakim Larsson; [2020]
    Keywords : waste management; recycling; waste-to-energy; sustainable development; extended producer responsibility;

    Abstract : It is widely known in the recycling industry that only a small share of the plastic packaging put on the Swedish market is materially recycled. The collection rate for plastic packaging waste is low, with most of it being disposed of in the municipal solid waste, instead of being correctly sorted in the public collection system. READ MORE

  2. 2. Carbon dioxide utilization in the food industry. Synthesis of carbohydrates and their precursors via photocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Alex Mosquera Canchingre; [2020]
    Keywords : CO2 utilization; photocatalysis; carbohydrates; artificial photosynthesis; sustainable food industry; CO2-användning; fotokatalys; kolhydrater; artificiell fotosyntes; hållbar livsmedelsindustri;

    Abstract : Today’s society strives to eliminate the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, which is the main greenhouse gas emitted through anthropogenic activities and contributes to climate change. In this project utilization of CO2 emissions from waste to energy plants to carbohydrates via photocatalytic reduction with water and further carbon coupling reactions is investigated. READ MORE

  3. 3. Investigation of carbon capture technologies for Sävenäs waste-to-energy plant

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Jasmine Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : CCS; flue gas treatment; waste incineration; energy balance; emission abatement;

    Abstract : Carbon capture technologies have the potential to decarbonize the emissions to air from the heat and power sector and contribute to the necessary greenhouse gas emission mitigation in order to meet the Paris Agreement requirements. The energy requirement and ability to retrofit carbon capture units are crucial to convert existing power plants into more environmental benign processes to meet the Swedish national goal of greenhouse gas neutrality at 2045.
