To enable for more sustainable decisions, this study maps the environmental impact, in terms of CO2 equivalents, of four different possible actions for parts delivered by suppliers which are not according to the technical specifications, referred to as non-conforming parts (NCPs). Also, an investigation regarding the current situation was conducted to be able to identify possible measures to reduce emissions. </div> <div> </div> <div>The four actions mapped are: returning the part to the supplier, scrapping the part, adjusting the part, or temporary accept it if quality requirements are met. On request from SQP at Skövde, part of Volvo Group Purchasing, the environmental impact of each action will be implemented into SQPs quality reporting system. Recommendations for the employees responsible for the NCPs will also be presented based on the outcome which aims to encourage decisions that reduces the environmental impact. The topic of this study also contributes to the field of reversed logistics and its potential environmental impact. Previous studies on reverse logistics have empathized the classic forward supply chain, business to consumer, and its environmental impact, but this study focuses on the impact of reversed flows, business to business, more specifically focal companies to suppliers. </div> <div> </div> <div>Communications through meetings with people at different departments at Volvo Group was conducted to access emission data and organizational information regarding the working procedure connected to NCPs. External actors affiliated with Volvo Group Purchasing was also contacted to complete the data set. Furthermore, literature within the field have been used as a basis for research. For each of the four possible actions taken, processes which contributes with emissions were identified and then aggregated to represent the different actions. Processes identified to cause emissions are extraction and manufacturing, transports, assembling, and end of life treatment.  </div> <div> </div> <div>The results indicate that returning the NCPs to the supplier has the largest environmental impact. For return, the distance and mode of transport affects the emissions the most. Scrapping the part is the third best option where most of the emissions from extraction and manufacturing can be avoided through recycling. To either adjust the non-conforming part or temporary accept are the two options causing the least emissions. Though these two options may pose a quality risk for the complete product. </div> <div> </div> <div>To enable more sustainable decisions when handling quality issues at SQP the following could be considered: (1) If quality could be ensured, adjustment or temporary acceptance is recommended. (2) Is the return to supplier for investigation necessary? If so, do all parts need to be returned? If not, potential savings in total emissions could come from scrapping the part. (3) If return is necessary, is time a crucial aspect? If not, could flights be avoided and substituted with ship, train, or truck to reduce emissions? (4) Preventing further occurrences of quality issues is the most effective approach, due to the reduction in number of NCPs. </div> <div> </div> <div>The implementation of more sustainability at SQP will create space and awareness for all actors involved and hopefully encourage suppliers to also implement more sustainability measures within their organization.   </div> <div style="font-weight:bold"><br /></div></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/see/calendar/Pages/Master-thesis-presentation,-John-Petersson.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/see/calendar/Pages/Master-thesis-presentation,-John-Petersson.aspxMaster thesis presentation, John Petersson<p>Energy Technology, division, Hörsalsvägen 7B, M-huset</p><p>​Thermal plasma in a rotary kiln for cement production – An investigation of the heat transfer mechanisms​</p>​<div><span style="background-color:initial">John Petersson presents his thesis “Thermal plasma in a rotary kiln for cement production – An investigation of the heat transfer mechanisms“, at the department of Space, Earth and Environment.</span><div><br /></div> <div>Opponents: Benedikt Jahn and Niva Mital</div> <div>Supervisors: Adrian Gunnarsson and Klas Andersson</div> <div>Examiner: Klas Andersson.</div></div> <div><br /></div> <div><a href="https://chalmers.zoom.us/j/68761436840">Zoom link​</a>. </div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/see/calendar/Pages/Master-thesis-presentation,-Fredrik-Nyström-Lindé.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/see/calendar/Pages/Master-thesis-presentation,-Fredrik-Nystr%C3%B6m-Lind%C3%A9.aspxMaster thesis presentation, Fredrik Nyström Lindé<p>EL42, lecture room, Maskingränd 2, Linsen</p><p>​Investigating the VLBI Scale Problem - How is the VLBI technique defined scale affected by the session network components?</p><div><br /></div> ​<span style="background-color:initial">Fredrik Nyström Lindé, student in the Wireless, Photonics and Space Engineering master’s programme, will present the thesis &quot;Investigating the VLBI Scale Problem - How is the VLBI technique defined scale affected by the session network components?&quot;, </span><span style="background-color:initial">at the Department of Space, Earth and Environment.​</span><span style="background-color:initial">​</span><div><br /><div>Opponent: Fredrik Meisingseth</div> <span style="background-color:initial">Examiner/Supervisor: Karine Le Bail</span></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/see/calendar/Pages/-Master-thesis-presentation,-Abhishek-Dahiya.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/see/calendar/Pages/-Master-thesis-presentation,-Abhishek-Dahiya.aspxMaster thesis presentation, Abhishek Dahiya<p>Energy Technology, division, Hörsalsvägen 7B, M-huset</p><p>​Thermal plasmas for industrial high-temperature processes – Modelling studies of aluminum smelting and steam cracking​</p>​<span style="background-color:initial">Abhishek Dahiya presents his thesis “Thermal plasmas for industrial high-temperature processes – Modelling studies of aluminum smelting and steam cracking”, at the department of Space, Earth and Environment.</span><div><div><br /></div> <div>Opponent: Julian Scheer och Tiia Kunelius​</div> <div>Supervisors: Adrian Gunnarsson and Klas Andersson</div> <span style="background-color:initial">Examiner: Klas Andersson.</span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><a href="https://chalmers.zoom.us/j/66179213412">Zoom link</a>. </span></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Calendar/Pages/Assistant-Professors-Candidates-2022.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/areas-of-advance/materials/Calendar/Pages/Assistant-Professors-Candidates-2022.aspxResearch presentations for Assistant Professors candidates – Materials Science AoA<p>PJ, seminar room, Kemigården 1, Fysik Origo</p><p>​The long process for new Assistant Professors within the Material Science Area of Advance is coming to an end.

The oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is a key step for producing energy carriers such as hydrogen via electrochemical water splitting, which is important for making existing technologies such as fuel cells carbon-free, as well as for metal-air batteries and for electroreduction reactions into hydrocarbons and ammonia. </div> <div>To enable these reactions, more efficient electrocatalysts for OER will be needed. Transition metal oxides show promising catalytic activities in alkaline electrolyte, however, the mechanism is still not fully understood despite elaborative work. Here, operando X-ray and other spectroscopic techniques are used to demonstrate the interplay at the electrochemical interface and deriving information of important intermediates in these materials. Important aspects of catalyst design are discussed in parallel with materials for aqueous electrochemical charge storage devices, which are both important for the development of future renewable energy systems.</div></div> <div></div> <div><br /></div> <div><div><span style="font-weight:700">Contact: </span><a href="mailto:abmaria@chalmers.se">Maria Abrahamsson</a><span style="background-color:initial">​, Director, Materials Science Area of Advance. <br /></span><a href="mailto:Leif.Asp@chalmers.se">Leif Asp​</a><span style="background-color:initial">, Co-Director, Materials Science Area of Advance. </span><br /></div> <div></div></div></span></div></div>https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Basic-science-research-presentations.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/physics/calendar/Pages/Basic-science-research-presentations.aspxPresentations by Assistant Professor candidates, Basic science, day 1<p>Kollektorn, lecture room, Kemivägen 9, MC2-huset</p><p>​Chalmers is currently recruiting two assistant professors in basic science.
