    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Industridesign

    Författare :Beata Salonen Ripa; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Japanese knotweed; Reynoutria japonica; Fallopia japonica; Polygonum cuspidatum; invasive species; alternative material; eco friendly material; Arts and Architecture; Agriculture and Food Sciences; Biology and Life Sciences; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Japanese knotweed, or Parkslide in Swedish, is considered one of the world’s most invasive species. The aim of this project was to explore and investigate the possibility of utilizing this alternative material, and by doing so, help restrict and limit the expansion of the plant. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Sidi Bouzid, Tunisia is an inland governorate in Tunisia that has undergone a rapid agricultural and urban development since the Tunisian independence in 1952 from being a rural and largely nomadic region into a hub of irrigated agriculture. In 2010 Mohamed Bouazizi sparked the Tunisian revolution by lighting himself on fire int he city of Sidi Bouzid, with some blaming the inequality and water scarcity created by this rapid expansion in the irrigation farming as an important cause (Bayat, 2017; Malka, 2018).

  3. 3. Från avfall till resurs

    Magister-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Miljövetenskaplig utbildning

    Författare :Camilla Vidlund; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Circular economy; construction sector; circular buildings construction; reuse; recycle; building materials.; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : A linear consumption model has long operated in several social structures, which is often referred to as the “take-make-waste” model and does not take into account the physical limit of resources. This has become a growing problem, not least in the construction sector as they use more resources and produce more waste than any other industrial sector. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Spatio-temporal drought characteristics in the Limpopo basin from 1918 to 2018 - A case study based on analysis of the Standardized Precipitation Evaporation Index (SPEI)

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap
