In the energy transition from fossil fuels to less polluting renewable energy sources geothermal energy are considered as a promising technology. Gasses such as CO2 are often dissolved in geothermal waters. With the extraction of these fluids from the reservoir, a change in pressure will occur towards the extraction well which may cause...

Dormancy is a topic that is researched extensively for various microorganisms, especially in the field of medicine. However, not many studies have been conducted for the dormancy of microorganisms in the wastewater treatment sector. Treatment processes like the NEREDA® technology use Phosphate Accumulating Organisms (PAO) to remove phosphate...

Aluminium is a vital component of the world's economy, thanks to its versatile applications. However, the environmental impacts of primary production result in a growing desire and societal pressure to develop more efficient recycling techniques. Secondary aluminium is produced at 5% of the energy consumption used to produce primary aluminium....

This thesis contributes to increasing the technology readiness level of hydrogen storage in gas reservoirs, which will be required when hydrogen has become a major energy carrier in the future Dutch energy system. It addresses the mixing processes with resident gases that occur during hydrogen storage operations in gas fields, and analyzes their...

As the construction of sub-aerial and submarine geotechnical structures increase in amount, rate and size, so do their associated risks. Often, with use constitutive models, finite element analyses (FEAs) are performed in order to identify and mitigate these risks. NorSand, which is a consti- tutive model based on critical state soil mechanics...

Undiscovered underground cavities might exist in the subsurface. A catastrophic ground failure event follows when such a cavity starts to migrate upwards and finally intersects with the surface, resulting in a sinkhole. Catastrophic collapse events are usually preceded by precursory subsidence. An upward migrating cavity causes the development...

Colloidal fouling has attracted increasing interest in the membrane field. Oil and water (O/W) emulsion droplet and Extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) are significant colloids in produced water and surface water, respectively. Oily wastewater is produced in many industrial processes such as oil and gas extraction processes, and can take a...

The main objective of this thesis is to understand the environmental risks related to geothermal operations. The aim is to provide an integrated approach from both natural and social sciences and to perform this in three different country settings. These countries are Indonesia, Turkey and the Netherlands and they were selected because of their...

The aim of this study is to reduce the risk of the ongoing Geothermal exploration effort in Geneva Basin by estimating the influence of the natural fracture on the reservoir properties. A Discrete Fracture Network (DFN) was generated to resemble the fracture network in the Lower Cretaceous carbonate reservoir. The DFN modelling approach is using...

"Landfills form the final stage in waste processing and are sources of multiple environmentally harmful emissions. Due to the biodegradation of organic material, methane, a strong greenhouse gas, is released into the air and soluble pollutants, like ammonium or heavy metals, are flushed out of the landfill waste. In modern landfills, the waste...

Surface mining operations can have a significant visual impact on the surrounding landscape and communities. There have been numerous cases of local populations pushing back against the development of mining operations near their communities. This study aims to determine whether it is possible to assess the visual impact of surface mining...

The use of wireline facies associations can alleviate core data shortage during facies prediction by providing a more extensive input dataset. Wintershall has assigned wireline facies associations directly on cored and un-cored wells in the Carboniferous of the Sothern North Sea. Conducting facies prediction using these wireline facies...

A large part of the Dutch coast, the barrier islands in the Wadden Sea included, would be eroding if the deficit in the total sediment budget was not compensated for through nourishments. Ebb-tidal deltas have an important function within the coastal system that make them of interest for coastal defence as a source and transport path for sand to...

To produce accurate 3D fluvial architecture models, it is important to understand the influence of internally generated autogenic controls versus externally generated allogenic controls. When studying a fluvial system, autogenic controls such as river meandering and avulsions generally dominate over 103-104 years. Allogenic controls such as...

The enlargement of the lock complex of Terneuzen in 2023 will allow Capesize vessels up to 300 meters in length, to access the Ghent-Terneuzen canal and reach the quay of ArcelorMittal Ghent (AMG). The goal of this thesis is to estimate to what extent these vessels can be used, the impact that these vessels will have on the supply chain and the...

The transition to renewable energy has lead to many new ways of energy production, such as wind and solar energy. For solar energy power, there is an excess of energy during summer and an deficiency of it during winter, which is reversed for the energy consumption. In order to amend this problem, there is an introduction of new ways of energy...

It is a great challenge to accurately model the flow through subsurface reservoirs. The fact that they are located a few kilometers below the earth’s surface means that it is very difficult to locate flow affecting phenomena. Fractures are considered to be such phenomena. They can either enhance or block flow which has a substantial effect on the flow...

The introduction of artificial reflectors in the areas to be imaged by a radar sensor facilitates interferometric analysis over regions of weak coherence between acquisitions. Traditionally, corner reflectors have been utilized; whose strong and stable scattering characteristics make them suitable for these purposes. Such reflectors also provide...

In riverine environments under anaerobic conditions, methane and carbon dioxide are produced as a result of biological activity, causing degradation of organic matter. Under aerobic conditions, the bacteria present degrade the organic matter, whereby the concentration of dissolved oxygen may be lowered. Thus, issues experienced in the...
