  1. 1. An early-stage energetic and environmental analysis for the new district of Jakobsgårdarna in Borlänge, Sweden

    Master-uppsats, Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Författare :Filippo Pellegrino; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Building; District; Energy; Demand; LCA;

    Sammanfattning : To achieve the aim of low carbon cities and zero energy districts, it is important to adapt the efficient technologies while maintaining the thermal comfort and sustainable environment. The new challenge in design and building new districts lies in a sustainable and smart way to minimize energy consumption and thus carbon emission. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Do feed-in tariffs promote environmental efficiency among wind farms? : a two-stage LCA + DEA efficiency case study on 75 Danish wind farms

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Economics

    Författare :Gustav Berglöf; [2020]
    Nyckelord :DEA; efficiency; environmental efficiency; feed-in tariff; operational efficiency; renewable energy; subsidy; wind power;

    Sammanfattning : It is generally known that wind power has an offsetting effect on emissions by crowding out fossil dependent energy sources. What has not been studied to any further extent is the variability in environmental impacts caused by wind turbine erection and manufacturing. Also, it is not known how economic incentives could affect these impacts. LÄS MER

  3. 3. LCA Based Water Footprint Assessment for a White Shirt

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Författare :Raveena Muthukumar; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Water footprint; water scarcity indicator; LCA; organic cotton; reuse of shirt;

    Sammanfattning : The white shirt is widely chosen attire by the people for its comfort and aesthetics. With rising population growth and demand for clothing, the production of white cotton shirts will be increased. The production of the white cotton shirt has various environmental impacts and also leads to water scarcity issues. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Strategic Assessment of Drinking Water Production Systems Environmental impacts from a Life cycle perspective : A case study of Norrvatten future drinking water production alternatives

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Författare :Rahul Aggarwal; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Life cycle assessment LCA ; Drinking water treatment; Environmental impacts; Sustainability; Global warming; Nanofiltration; Conventional water treatment; Ultrafiltration; Expansion alternatives; Water Quality; Water treatment plant; Environmental optimization; Drinking water quality;

    Sammanfattning : Climate change is a global challenge that requires proactive action from municipalities, companies, and other organizations to prioritize sustainability in their daily operations. In the past few decades, life cycle assessment (LCA) approach has been successfully applied for environmental assessments in the drinking water sector. LÄS MER

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

    M1-uppsats, Jönköping University/JTH, Logistik och verksamhetsledning; Jönköping University/JTH, Logistik och verksamhetsledning

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

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER
