Hanna Holmquist

PhD student, Environmental Systems Analysis, Technology Management and Economics

Since the autumn 2013 Hanna is a PhD student at Chalmers. Hanna’s research is about environmental and health assessment of impregnation chemicals for textiles. The research includes environmental and health assessment of the alternatives to long-chain per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Diffuse emissions and emissions via wastewater treatment plants are in focus. The research methodologies used include hazard assessment, chemical risk assessment and life cycle assessment (LCA). Hanna is particularly interested in how LCA and quantitative chemical risk assessment can be combined in environmental and health assessments in chemical substitution cases.
Hanna is part of the Chalmers team working in the Formas-funded project Substitution of prioritized poly- and perfluorinated chemicals to eliminate diffuse sources (SUPFES), http://supfes.eu/
