Abstract [en]

In the thesis the costs for extracting ground power cables from grass, asphalt or cobblestone using excavator or Kabel-X is examined. This is then compared to the sale value of the cable to a recycling company. The cables examined are 2 plastic (PVC) cables, 1 paper cable and 1 oil cable. The environmental perspective in the form of CO2, SO2, PO4, C2H4 and CFC11 is also examined where emissions from the extraction and the recycling process is compared to the avoided emissions from reusing the materials in the cables instead of extracting and processing new materials.

In the thesis the costs for extracting ground power cables from grass, asphalt or cobblestone using excavator or Kabel-X is examined. This is then compared to the sale value of the cable to a recycling company. The cables examined are 2 plastic (PVC) cables, 1 paper cable and 1 oil cable. The environmental perspective in the form of CO2, SO2, PO4, C2H4 and CFC11 is also examined where emissions from the extraction and the recycling process is compared to the avoided emissions from reusing the materials in the cables instead of extracting and processing new materials.

From an environmental point of view there is an incentive to extract the cables since the avoided emissions are greater than the combined emissions from the extraction and recycling.
