The following report will enlighten to which extent LiDAR data could enhance land cover classification. It focuses on the area Lemps (26510) in Southwest France where a land cover classification was made using Sentinel-2 spectral images during the fieldwork. Using the additional LiDAR data, the focus shifts to distinguish coniferous and...

Capturing CO2 directly at industrial complexes and safely storing it in the subsurface is one of the proposed mitigation measures of climate change. One of these challenges is identifying suitable reservoirs that ensure the safe and permanent storage of CO2. Therefore, detailed integrity assessments should be performed on the caprock to...

The United Nations’ Paris Agreement forces nations and industries to transition from conventional hydrocarbon-based energy sources to more sustainable and less-emitting alternatives such as geothermal energy. Geothermal doublets are used to provide a source of green heat to greenhouses and residential buildings. In industry, reservoir simulators...

This study aimed to evaluate the field scale potential of Microbially Induced Desaturation (MID) to improve the compactibility of silty sands. Conventional soil compaction techniques for saturated silty sands often require either high compaction effort or even fail to reach aspired relative densities. This thesis is a follow-up study based on...

Trials of surface modifications using low pressure chemical vapor deposition (LPCVD) has successfully decreased the high temperature needed for the fabrication of SiC membrane from 2000°C to below 900 °C. With this great success on the reduction of the energy con-sumption, however, further studies on the chemical stability and the fouling...

In order to supply the demand of oil, enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques are nowadays widely applied in the oil recovery industry to maximize reservoir sweep efficiencies. CO2-EOR method has been largely used in the petroleum industry for several decades, which can contribute to the reduction of global greenhouse gas emission through CO2...

Discontinuities have an important influence on the bulk behaviour of geomaterials. Discontinuities can be physical openings like fractures and joints, interfaces between different material types, or zones with different material behaviour like mortar or reinforcement material. Bulk material behaviour is often determined by the behaviour of the...

The soil-grout interface friction was measured to be in between 0.0 [kPa] and 14 [kPa]. To measure this friction, a special research method was invented that enabled a tunnel to be recreated. With this setup, any formation could be used. The formation could be created with a hole in the middle which simulated a borehole. Next, by filling and...

Underground energy storage (UES) in porous and cavity reservoirs can be used to balance the mismatch between the production and demand of renewable energy, as well as for securing gas and oil supply during shortage or high demand periods. Understanding the geomechanical behavior of these reservoirs under different storage conditions, i.e.,...

Over the years, modelling frameworks have been proposed to describe and predict the degradation of municipal solid waste in landfills. These frameworks, however, fail to couple the kinetic solutions to the real-time equilibrium state of the system. Because of this, fundamental processes such as pH changes, NH4+ adsorption to the waste surface...

Subsurface energy projects carry high risk due to the lack of data available to accurately model reservoir characteristics. There is a need for high level analysis to extrapolate subsurface data from a single point (i.e. a well). The focus of this study will be on fracture characterisation in a carbonate reservoir located within the Geneva Basin...

ZHANG, ZILIANG (author)
In this work, an efficient compositional framework is developed to simulate CO2 storage in saline aquifers with complex geological geometries during a lifelong injection and migration process. The novelty of the development is that essential physics for CO2 trapping are considered by a parametrization method. <br/>The numerical framework...

This project is part of the larger REX-CO2 project, which assesses the re-usability of abandoned wells in reservoirs targeted for CCS operations. It comes as a necessity to also assess the abandoned wells that will not be re-purposed, by assessing the risk they pose in terms of allowing the stored CO2 to resurface across them, which is the focus...

High-level waste can be radiotoxic for thousands of years and should be carefully handled to prevent accidents. The research for geological disposal of radioactive waste focuses on the construction and durability of a geologic disposal facility in Dutch clays or salts. One of the challenges is assessing these host rocks’ capability to retard...

As industrialization advances rapidly in pursuit of refining the quality of human life, there has been a release of organic micropollutants (OMPs) such as pharmaceuticals into various water reserves. This has endangered the ecosystem and the possibilities of water recovery. Commonly used tertiary wastewater treatment technologies have proven to,...

The extraction and processing of mineral and metal ores in the mining industry comes paired with large amounts of mine waste, also known as tailings. This waste consists of various chemicals, acids, and heavy metals which are used during these extraction processes. The tailings are usually stored off in tailings storage facilities (TSF) in a...

Monopiles with large diameter (larger than 6 m) and low aspect ratio (less than 6) are increasingly used in offshore wind farms. These foundations demonstrate a rigid response under lateral loading. The validity of the existing design methods, that are based on small diameter flexible piles, has been questioned by both the industry and...

Permian deposits are found in outcrops and in the subsurface of Southern Tunisia, in the Jeffara Basin. Their stratigraphic and tectonic evolution is not yet fully understood and represents the main focus of this work. Aspects of the Permian system such as, lateral extend of formations, dating and paleo environments are not well constrained....

In this project, we have done a calibrated measurement on a previously designed and fabricated current pumped Josephson Parametric amplifier. We have installed a microwave switch into our crygenic fridge tobe able to get a calibrated response measurement using Short-Open-Load calibration, which we used withmeasurements of the gain and flux...

Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) and Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are widely used to monitor the dynamic behavior of the Earth. InSAR is a geodetic technique that estimates millimeter-level relative displacement time-series in an opportunistic network of a multitude of coherent points on the Earth’s surface, in a...
