The island of Bonaire is planning multiple sustainable transitions in the water,<br/>energy and food systems in response to numerous challenges, such as increas-<br/>ing population pressure, rising sea levels, environmental damage, high consumer<br/>prices and import dependency. The water-energy-food nexus is a relatively novel<br/>concept that...

Local emission of especially particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) are haz- ardous for people living in close proximity. The municipality of Rotterdam can not yet comply with national regulation regarding N Ox and the current levels of N Ox pose a health risk for society (Gemeente Rotterdam). The Port of Rotterdam and local government...

The fracture energy for hardwood was modeled using finite element modeling (FEM) software DIANA. The results of the model was compared to the fracture energy experimental research performed by Boerenveen (2019). The fracture energy results obtained by the model are similar to the results obtained from the experimental research. An model fracture...

This thesis investigates the potential of a semi-passive trailing-edge flap on a large conceptual wind turbine. The mechanism passively reacts to blade and tower accelerations by changing the airfoil camber, opposing the dynamic loads on the turbine. An active element is present, which influences the mean of the flap oscillation. First, a low...

In the now a day-age the energy industry is in a transitional phase. Humanity is searching to find an answer to the depletion of fossil fuels, with the exploration of new renewable resources. These renewable resources, in contrary to fossil fuels, require to be continuously balanced between production peaks and lows. Leading to the need for...

Offices consume a lot of energy in the Netherland. In addition to the low energy efficiency, the office environment, and working style cause health problems. This research focuses on the farming-integrate office system and the flows in it, involving food, air, water, electricity, and heat. Taking Marineterrein as the site and use environmental...

The building sector uses 40% of the primary energy worldwide. Energy demand in a non-residential existing building is rising due to higher comfort conditions, population growth and the enhancement of the building services. On the other hand, renewable energy technologies are every time more accessible for the built environment, especially the...

The concept of Venturedam was developed to solve societal challenges in India by nurturing the strength of the innovations made in the Netherlands. For Dutch startups to expand to a new market like India that has a considerable difference in the context, it is first required to redefine the value proposition and the business model specific to...

Nitrogen (N) removal is one of the key tasks for every wastewater treatment plant under the growing pressure of environmental protection. Prevailing applied N treatment technologies are mostly energy-intensive. This dilemma triggers a rethinking of the way to approach N management. “N2kWh-From pollutant to power” is a project that aims at...

Sustainability is becoming more important in numerous industries, including healthcare. Action to achieve sustainability is undertaken by various means, such as the Green Deal Healthcare. Several tools exist that can assess the environmental impact of a certain industry or company, but no tools exist that aid in actively lowering this...

The increase in the share of renewable energy sources in the Dutch energy mix, requires an increase in flexibility from the power consumers and producers. A key issue in the availability of wind and solar power that it is independent of the power demand. Fortunately, the liberalised power market provides a financial incentive to increase both...

In today’s industry ammonia is produced on a large scale, and is used in the production of fertilisers, cleaning products and much more. Eventually the ammonia enters our wastewater, either directly or through urine. This is then removed with conventional nitrifying-denitrifying treatment or with Anammox. That process consumes energy and does...

In 2050 the characteristics of the Port of Amsterdam will be totally changed. Enormous developments will change our area to a highly dense urban city. The Hemweg centrale will be closed down, but how can we create our energy then? The demand for energy will increase. New technique shows other ways of creating energy, like nuclear fusion. Nuclear...

Assuming that cars in the near future will be fully electrical and capable of driving autonomously with or without any human on board. This resulted in two main topics in the research, architectural changes and ability to add to sustainability of buildings with these future cars. The conclusion was basically that we can reduce uses space of a...

In the search for new forms of renewable energy production, an interesting option is to make use of the energy stored in the ocean in tropical areas. The sun heats up the surface water in these areas to a point it is feasible to generate electricity, using the temperature difference between the hot surface water and the cold ocean water at...

Accurate Annual Energy Yield (AEY) predictions can mean important savings due to optimization of energy generation for both particular and utility scale PV systems. <br/>However, currently available commercial models fall short to faithfully reproduce complex designs, specially involving bifacial modules, where albedo gains are relevant. <br/...

Population growth, meat-focused diets and emerging industries are increasing stress on water, energy and food (hereafter: WEF) supply around the globe. As stress on the resources rises, the interdependencies between the sectors become more apparent and often lead to unforeseen chain reactions. An example of which is: a drought leads to...

The global energy demand is increasing as a result of population growth and increased wealth standards. The share of local renewable energy supply is also increasing, driven by the urge to mitigate climate problems.<br/><br/>Residential energy demand and renewable energy supply are both intermittent; the demand profile depends on several aspects...

As a response to land scarcity, climate change, the decreasing stock of fossil fuels and the pressure on the drinking water system, this proposal proposes to extend cities onto the water within a floating, modular and self-sustaining neighbourhood. This proposal includes research into floating mechanisms, modular systems, and various systems to...

The thesis explores the necessity of change for the building stock of Amsterdam driven by the cities climate and densification targets, to develop a design of a retrofit for a building typology that maximizes the areas ability to reach these objectives. The area analysed for the retrofit design was a defined region in Amsterdam Nieuw-west, a...
