  1. 1. The environmental impact of introducing a potato protein for human consumption in Sweden

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Malou Tromp; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Sustainable Development; food loss; plant-based; genome-editing; potato protein; Life Cycle Assessment;

    Sammanfattning : In this study, a Consequential Life Cycle Assessment (CLCA) was conducted on the introduction of a potato protein for human consumption in Sweden. The assessed environmental impact cathegories in the CLCA were the categories global warming potential, eutrophication and land use. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Optimizing the preparation of cooked chickpea

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Författare :Julia Engsner; [2020]
    Nyckelord :chickpeas; pulses; legumes; boiling; cooking; soaking; treatment; preparation; optimization;

    Sammanfattning : The demand of processing pulses (dry beans, lentil, and peas) into various foods has increased over the recent years as they are considered a sustainable and healthy food. Thus, a sustainable processing of them is equally important for the future. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Vinn mot svinn - En studie som belyser hur producenter kan hjälpa konsumenter att minska sitt omfattande matsvinn

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Miljövetenskaplig utbildning

    Författare :Lisa Erichs; Amelie Hansson; [2020]
    Nyckelord :matsvinn; datummärkning; förpackningar; livsmedel; producentansvar; förvaring; hållbarhetsdatum; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Nature has provided us with delicious and nutritious food for many years. It is estimated that one third of all edible food is wasted globally. This means a substantial loss of resources. Consumers are unaware of the great amount of avoidable food waste that is created from household consumption and the environmental impact it has. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Assessment of food losses and waste and related greenhouse gas emissions along a fresh apples value chain

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Energy and Technology

    Författare :Oluwadamilola Oluwaseun Omoleye; [2020]
    Nyckelord :food loss and waste; apple loss; value chain; environmental impacts; GHG; emissions;

    Sammanfattning : Reducing food waste is very important for food security and environmental issues. The aim of this study is to assess potential food losses and waste (FLW) along fresh apples value chain, related environmental impact (emissions), and identify applicable measures to reduce losses and waste.

  5. 5. NDVI time series analysis for desert locust outbreak detection and quantification analysis of its impact on vegetation productivity of Sahel

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

    Författare :Evangelos Oikonomopoulos; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; Primary Productivity; Desert Locust; NDVI; Time Series Analysis; Outbreak Detection; Food Security; Sahel; Insect Disturbances; GEM; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : It has been shown that the semi-arid environment of the Sahelian belt plays an important role in the global carbon uptake as the fluctuation of its primary productivity can be determinant for the global carbon uptake. The insect Schistocerca gregaria commonly known as the desert locust is a disturbance factor that can affect the vegetation productivity for consecutive seasons. LÄS MER
