Evaluating cost-, energy-, and resource efficiency in a life cycle perspective.

 

My research take place in an interdisciplinary environment, where the research questions are approached and investigated from several perspectives and by participants from a number of research areas, using qualitative as well as quantitative methods. The main methods I use are life cycle assessment (LCA) and life cycle costing (LCC).

The projects I am, or recently have been, involved in covers a diversity of areas, for example, functional sales of indoor lighting, using AI to develop maintenance strategies, a new method for mineral and metal extraction, and electric non-road mobile machinery. My main task is to evaluate the effect on environmental impact, cost, energy and resource use in a life cycle perspective.

I also have extensive experience in research on transport and infrastructure, such as life cycle assessment of roads, road surface characteristics and the effect on rolling resistance and traffic fuel use, efficient use of engine heaters and the effect on electricity use due to longer and heavier freight trains.

Present and recent projects

Electrified Material Handling

The project´s intention is to perform three fossil- and emission-free system solution demonstrations for medium-sized work machines while maintaining productivity and customer acceptance. Read more about the project Electrified Material Handling

Circular workwear in construction and industry

In the project, the legal, economic, and environmental pros and cons with modular work wear are evaluated. The perspectives of the distributor and customers are covered as well as the users’ perceived value of the clothes. read more about the project Circular workwear in construction and industry

Adapt 2030

Adaptive lifecycle design by applying digitalization and AI techniques to production. The project will develop a method and two demonstrators as “proof of concept” showing the process and value of lifecycle digitalization.Read more about the project Adapt 2030

Electric Site Research Project

The aim was to electrify each transport stage in a quarry – from excavation to primary crushing, and transport to secondary crushing –demonstrate the viability and evaluate the outcome. The system’s efficiency, safety and environmental benefits are set to impact both customers and society at large. Read more about the project Electric Site Research Project

SIMON

New Application of AI for Services in Maintenance towards a Circular Economy. The project created an inventory of AI techniques for maintenance services, applied AI techniques to three industrial cases, and evaluated their economic and environmental implications.Read more about the project SIMON

Functional sales of indoor lighting

The project aims to examine the legal aspects related to product service systems (PSS) and the environmental and economic effects resulting from the legal regulation. The survey aims to obtain knowledge about how PSS models should be designed to facilitate and stimulate business development and commercialization of more energy efficient, environmental and economic solutions than those provided today.
