2.4 Generality and Representativeness for Other Contexts The generality of the study of the Swedish clothing sector is limited due to several aspects, whereof the most important ones will be studied here. To increase the generality of the study and investigate whether more general conclusions can be drawn, the foreground system, i.e. the technology in focus of the study, has been placed in the context of two new countries: the USA and China, which gives scenarios with different background systems to the study. The aspects that are varied within the scenarios are as follows: The amount of garments consumed per capita, The electricity mix used for washing and drying garments in the use phase, The washing habits of the consumers, Consumer transports.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
