Ecology in Diapers Return to cloth diapers as a step forward?
Stehlíková, Tereza ; Jakoubková Budilová, Lenka (advisor) ; Kolářová, Marta (referee)
In my thesis, I have covered interviews with ten women - mothers who have decided to use for their babies a changing system of modern cloth diapers. For the topic I have used a qualitative sociological research strategy. The purpose of the received data from the interviews was to answer questions about motivations and reasons for the usage of this type of nappies and decide what benefits they see in them. As our society is used to disposable baby diapers and looks at them as a norm, I was interested in people's reactions, which these mothers have faced and how they have coped with. Finally, I have tried to find out the role of the internet and the social media in this matter. The theoretical part is devoted to the history of cloth and disposable diapers. There I have put into the context the issue of cloth diapers with the principles of sustainable development and responsible consumption. In the practical part I have carried out an analysis of ten semi-structured interviews with mothers who have been using cloth diapers for babies, along with examples of expressions of activities associated with cloth diapers in social media on the internet.
Consumers' Motives for Buying Upcycled Clothes
Bourová, Tereza ; Janoušková, Svatava (advisor) ; Švíková, Radka (referee)
The focus of this diploma thesis is on the consumers' motives for purchasing upcycled clothing. Based on the research of available resources, this thesis firstly describes the most expanded model of clothing production, fast fashion, with special focus on the negative environmental impacts it has during different stages of a product life cycle. It later moves on to describe the traditional and more environmentally friendly model, slow fashion, and puts both these concepts (fast fashion and slow fashion) in connection with the hierarchy of waste management and the concept of circular economy. This theoretical base helps to fully understand the concept of upcycled fashion, which is thoroughly described in a separate chapter that also includes various examples of designers who focus on fashion upcycling. The last section of the theoretical part deals with motivation and motives for purchasing clothes. The empirical part of this diploma thesis focuses on how consumers perceive upcycled fashion in order to answer the main research question: What are the consumers' motives for purchasing upcycled clothes? To answer the question, qualitative research was used, specifically semi- structured interviews. The interviews were conducted with a total of twelve shoppers who have had previous personal experience...
Hevlín – place in the landscape
Hajšmanová, Adéla ; Eichlerová, Eva (referee) ; Ponešová, Barbora (advisor)
The thesis Uncharged-charged – new energy for the customs house building deals with a project of a community and cultural centre with an accommodation that reflects specific needs of the rural region on the borders. The core is a conversion of unused historical customs house building near the Hevlín–Laa an der Thaya border crossing to an attractive place serving especially the locals as a supportive environment for their activities. It also brings a new cultural options to the region. The layout adjusts the building to its new function and supports some of the qualities of the current state. There is a new building added as an accommodation for the tourists (especially cyclists and canoeists) travelling at the international cycle tracks or the river Dyje, which cross the location. Also there is a newly designed orchard/campsite surrounding the buildings serving for the accomodation as well.
Analysis and Proposal for the Use of Brownfields in the Former Brick Factory in Brno
Pšikalová, Věra ; Hakl, Filip (referee) ; Čech, Josef (advisor)
The master thesis deals with a problematic of brownfield´s regeneration and reuse in relation to the issue of sustainable development. The aim of the thesis is to analyze and create a proposal for the brownfield´s regeneration in the former Kohn´s brick factory in Brno. The proposal of the regeneration should be based on the analysis of HABU, which leads to the highest and the best possible use of any property. The analysis includes the detailed knowledge about the brownfield´s site and their demarcation in the urban planning documents of the city of Brno. According to the proposal of the brownfield´s regeneration, there will be four investment options. They will be distinguished through their time horizon of the investment valorization. Each investment option will be thoroughly reviewed. Option with the biggest valorization will be recommended for the potential realization
Technologies of reuse of wastewater in place of need
Podhrázský, Martin ; Ševčík, Jan (referee) ; Hlavínek, Petr (advisor)
Final thesis is focusing on possibilities hidden in the potential of wastewaters in sewers. The goal of this thesis is to present technologies and experiences with water reclamation and with heat recovery systems using wastewaters as a source of heat energy. The theoretical part is divided in two main topics. The first topic is focused on bringing important knowledge and experiences with designing and operating decentralized sewer mining systems, which are, due to less favourable environmental conditions, largely applicated and developed in countries such as Australia, California, etc. The second topic is focusing on heat recovery from sewage water and possibilities of heating and cooling buildings. A possibility of using heat energy from sewage for heating and cooling a swimming pool building located in Brno, Czech Republic was assessed in the last part of this thesis. As a source of wastewater was considered a sewer main located near the pool building. Payback periods and economical effectivity of investing into wastewater heat recovery system was compared with centralized heat supply system, which is a very common source of heat energy in Czech Republic.
Use of polypropylene waste particles for building thermal insulation
Baránek, Šimon ; Čermák, Jan (referee) ; Šťastník, Stanislav (advisor)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is the issue of waste economy, waste management and reuse in the field of waste plastics. The thesis summarizes information about thermal insulation materials, plastics, recycling and plastics waste management. In the experimental part, were verified the possibilities of processing of available plastic waste for produce thermal insulation material.
Ways of rain water disposal or reuse in the newly built production compound near the Hodejice village
Kabátek, Stanislav ; Menšík, Pavel (referee) ; Hyánková, Eva (advisor)
The task of this work is to solve rainwater management, which will be captured on the roof and on the paved areas due to the planned construction of the production factory in Hodějice village. Outflow of rainwater could glut culvert beneath railway line. Resolving rainwater management is a prerequisite for obtaining a building permit. The solution is a system of infiltration blocks with controlled drainage, which ensures the retention and not-increasing of the original rain outflow from the land. For solution manual calculation according to ČSN 75 9010 and the application from the ASIO manufacturer is used. The benefit of this work is the design of a system for automatic irrigation of vegetation on land and a system for eventual maintenance and washing of technical equipment. This will use the rainwater that would otherwise outflow meaningfully.
The Use of Alternative Sources in the Building Industry
Dvořák, Jakub ; Vymazal, Tomáš (referee) ; Žižková, Nikol (advisor)
This bachelor thesis is focused on the use of waste as alternative raw materials in construction industry. The first part is dedicated to the historical development of waste management, to the valid legislation in the Czech Republic in 2017 and outlines the distribution of waste according to various criteria. The information about waste production and waste management is processed in the form of tables and graphs. The more extensive second part of the thesis uses theoretical knowledge in the field of waste management and on the base of the Waste Separation Catalog is composed a list of waste materials which can be used in construction industry. Further are described the possibilities of suitable waste utilization at production and also mentioned some particular construction products with their features.
