  • A hands-on framework for the design and implementation of plant-based food experiences 

    Bertella, Giovanna; Brall, Vanessa; Berti, Lia (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2024)
    This chapter presents how to promote plant-based food consumption as both an ordinary and extraordinary experience. Studies on social, sustainability and experiential marketing are reviewed, and two cases in Arctic Norway are investigated that highlight the plant-based eating challenges of limited local production of vegetables and a dominant animal-based food culture. The cases concern a nonprofit ...
  • What Is the Impact of Accidentally Transporting Terrestrial Alien Species? A New Life Cycle Impact Assessment Model 

    Borgelt, Jan Simon; Dorber, Martin; Géron, Charly; Kuipers, Koen Jacobus Josefus; Huijbregts, Mark A. J.; Verones, Francesca (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-08)
    Alien species form one of the main threats to global biodiversity. Although Life Cycle Assessment attempts to holistically assess environmental impacts of products and services across value chains, ecological impacts of the introduction of alien species are so far not assessed in Life Cycle Impact Assessment. Here, we developed country-to-country-specific characterization factors, expressed as the ...

Cooke, Steven; Souza, Allan T.; Jarić, Ivan; Prchalová, Marie; Říha, Milan; Westrelin, Samuel; Twardek, William M; Aspillaga, Eneko; Kraft, Sebastian; Šmejkal, Marek; Baktoft, Henrik; Brodin, Tomas; Hellström, Gustav; Villegas-Ríos, David; Vollset, Knut Wiik; Adam, Timo; Sortland, Lene; Bertram, Michael G.; Crossa, Marcelo; Vogel, Emma Frances; Gillies, Natasha; Reubens, Jan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-06)
    Despite great promise for understanding the impacts and extent of climate change on aquatic animals, their species, and ecological communities, it is surprising that tracking tools, like biotelemetry and biologging devices, have not been extensively used to understand climate change or develop and evaluate potential interventions that may forestall or mitigate its effects. In this review, we provide ...
  • From propriety to validity in new ventures: A nine-year study of three startup companies 

    Oftedal, Elin Merethe; Foss, Lene; Rutherford, Matthew (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-01-10)
    New ventures introducing new technological innovations must, to survive, negotiate legitimacy with stakeholders who provide critical resources (e.g., Zimmerman and Zeitz, 2002). Legitimacy - “a generalized perception or assumption that the actions of an entity are desirable, proper, or appropriate within some socially constructed system of norms, values, beliefs, and definitions” (Suchman, 1995, p. ...
  • Growth strategies of Chlorella vulgaris in seawater for a high production of biomass and lipids suitable for biodiesel 

    Rautenberger, Ralf; Detain, Alexandre; Skjånes, Kari; Schulze, Peter Simon Claus; Kiron, Viswanath; Morales Sanchez, Daniela (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-09)
    Chlorella vulgaris is a freshwater microalga that synthesises large amounts of saturated lipids, which makes it suitable for production of bioenergy and biofuels. Since its cultivation usually requires freshwater, it competes with agriculture, economic development and ecological conservation for this limited natural resource. This study investigated the possibility of the partial replacement of ...

    Vi nordmenn elsker banan. Så mye at de fleste av oss spiser hele 16 kilo hvert år. Men vi kaster også mye banan. Det er jo verken bra for pengeboka eller kloden, så hvordan kan vi løse dette problemet?
  • Unge voksne: Derfor kaster de brød 

    Alm, Siril; Elstad Stensgård, Aina; Andersen, Marcus Olling; Edvardsen, Charlotte; Velle, Torstein Aleksander; Karlsen, Johannes Martin (Chronicle; Kronikk, 2024-01-08)
    Brød er en viktig del av det norske kostholdet, og vi spiser i gjennomsnitt 60 kilo brød per person hvert år. Men vi kaster også mye brød, nesten 20 kilo hver person. Dette er jo verken bra for pengeboka eller miljøet, så hvordan kan vi redusere brødsvinnet?
  • Children and Youth at Risk in times of Transition. International and Interdisciplinary Perspectives 

    Ødegaard, Ingvill Constanze; Borge, Baard Herman; Kleinau, Elke (Book; Bok, 2023-12-04)
    Children and youth belong to one of the most vulnerable groups in societies. This was the case even before the current humanitarian crises around the world which led millions of people and families to flee from wars, terror, poverty and exploitation. Minors have been denied human rights such as access to education, food and health services. They have been kidnapped, sold, manipulated, mutilated, ...

  • Editorial: Environmental impacts and risks of car tire and styrene-butadiene rubber: microplastic pollution and contaminant transport 

    Halsband, Claudia; Sørensen, Lisbet; Khan, Farhan R.; Herzke, Dorte; Wagner, Stephan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-01-04)
    Every year, almost 2 billion new vehicle tires are produced world-wide. At the same time >1 billion tires reach their end of life. During use, tire wear particles (TWPs) form through abrasion of the rubber material, and in contact with the road surface composites of both materials form tire and road wear particles (TRWPs). These emissions represent a large fraction of total microplastic pollution, ...
