  1. 1. An overview on the environmental impacts of synthetic leather made of hemp fiber with preliminary lifecycle assessment

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

    Författare :Martina Hultkrantz; [2018]
    Nyckelord :preliminary lca; life cycle assessment; hemp; hemp leather; leather; bovine leather; animal industry; sustainable development; cannabis; sativa; industrial hemp; lca; vegan; synthetic leather; imitation leather; environmental; preliminär lca; livscykelanalys; hampa; hampläder; läder; nötskinn; djurindustri; hållbar utveckling; cannabis; sativa; industrihampa; lca; vegan; syntetiskt läder; imitationsläder; miljö;

    Sammanfattning : This report covers a preliminary life cycle assessment (LCA) on imitation leather made from hemp fiber (hemp leather) and a comparison to bovine leather, to examine whether hemp leather is an environmentally sustainable alternative. The bovine leather industry is responsible for heavy chemical use and emissions, detrimental effects to the environment as well as to human health. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Life Cycle Assessment Framework: Incorporating an extended environmental perspective in the Haldex Project Management Model

    M1-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Produktionsekonomi

    Författare :Ola Knutsson; [2015]
    Nyckelord :Life cycle assessment; tool framework; LCA; corporate social responsibility; design for environment; carbon footprint; simplified LCA; life cycle.; Technology and Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Background: An increased concern of environmental issues have made companies, including Haldex, look for new engineering and design practices to keep up with legislations and stakeholder pressure, often by analyzing products’ total environmental impact over their life cycles, in so called life cycle assessment studies. The Haldex Project Management Model is a company specific project model where Haldex projects move through, till their completion, and the concern is that life cycle assessment studies have not been included as a deliverable in the Haldex Project Management Model before.

  3. 3. Assessing the environmental impact of building materials using the Dutch approach: The case of the Triodos bank office building using BREEAM.NL

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign

    Författare :Marie Chevalerias; [2015]
    Nyckelord :National MilieuDatabase.; office building; BREEAM.NL; building materials; shadow cost; LCA; environmental impact; Technology and Engineering; Arts and Architecture; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : With the increasing importance accorded to environmental performance of buildings, the goal of this master thesis is to study the Dutch assessment method for evaluating the environmental impact caused by the material of an office building project with the Dutch version of the BREEAM certification scheme. After doing a literature review to comprehend the current state of affair concerning the assessment method for environmental impact of building material in the Netherlands, the MaterialenTool using the National MilieuDatabase was used to assess different scenarios aiming to reduce the total shadow cost of the building.

  4. 4. Preliminary design and multi-criteria analysis of solutions for widening an existing concrete bridge : Case of the Bridge of Chaillot in Vierzon (France)

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Författare :Pierre Fline; [2011]
    Nyckelord :prestressed concrete bridge; modernization; rehabilitation; widening; multi-criteria analysis; Life Cycle Assessment; LCA; Life Cycle Cost; LCC;

    Sammanfattning :  Europe experienced the destruction of numerous infrastructures during World War II, followed by a reflation and a strong economic growth during the next two decades allowing a more perennial and durable situation. A classical bridge lasting in general around 80 years, one should observe that these constructions built after the war will have to be either replaced either seriously strengthened in a few years.

  5. 5. Bridge Life Cycle Cost Optimization : Analysis, Evaluation & Implementation

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Byggvetenskap

    Författare :Mohammed Safi; [2009]
    Nyckelord :Bridge; LCC; LCA; LCCA; Life cycle cost; Invironmental Impact; Bro; User Cost;

    Sammanfattning : In infrastructure construction projects especially bridge investments, the most critical decisions that significantly affect the whole bridge LCC are the early stages decisions. Clearly, it's more beneficial to correctly choose the optimum bridge than to choose the optimum construction or repair method. LÄS MER
