To reduce global warming the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG) must be net zero in 2050, Paris agreement. In the Netherlands the building sector is responsible for 38% of total GHG emissions, 27% being operational carbon (related to energy use) and 11% embodied carbon (related to the use of materials). A large portion of the GHG emissions in...

Micro, Small, and Medium Business (MSMEs) are vital to the Indonesian economic development, and the government is focusing on this sector for post-pandemic recovery. There is an emphasis on infrastructure such as urban green spaces, or Ruang Terbuka Hijau (RTH). RTHs have untapped potential as centers for agricultural and processing MSMEs....

It is observed that both cost and environmental impact are underemphasized criteria in the investment decision-making process of Institutional Real Estate Investment Funds (IREIFs). The limited adoption of Life Cycle Costing (LCC) and Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) within IREIFs' Performance Management Systems (PMS) hampers improved investment...

The construction sector significantly contributes to global waste generation and greenhouse gas emissions, leading to environmental issues such as climate change, global warming, and resource depletion. The conventional linear economy in the construction sector follows a take-make-waste approach, resulting in adverse environmental impacts. The...

Heat pumps (HPs) which use low temperature (waste) heat and renewable energy sources to provide high temperature heat are widely regarded as a critical technology for reducing carbon dioxide emissions in the industrial sector. The HighLift technology considered here can provide high temperature output heat up to around 200 °C. This article...

Sea level rise will increase the risk of flooding in coastal areas. This poses a risk to the coastal protection as well as rivers and lakes close to the coast. Solutions are needed to cope with this threat. The past decade, nature based solutions have gained significant interest. One of these solutions could be sandy foreshores. Due to the use...

Over the last few years, the construction sector has experienced increasing demand for raw materials due to the rapid growth of the urban population. At the same time, most of the post-war buildings in Europe have reached the end of their service life. As a consequence, a period of intense demolition activities with<br/>significant waste...

The majority of existing infrastructure assets are ageing, and sooner or later, they will have reached the end of their service life. As a result, many asset owners are confronted with large-scale replacement projects in the coming decades. Annually, they allocate a significant number of resources, but these budgets are never adequate for...

The Meuse is a river in West-Europe which rises at the Langres Plateau and flows from France through Belgium and the Netherlands. The river has always been an important shipping route, even though its navigability has been problematic in the Netherlands. To solve this problem seven weirs were constructed in the Dutch part of the Meuse. They are...

The construction sector can become more sustainable by applying the Circular Economy concept, which distinguishes two main pathways: substituting materials for biological materials, or optimizing the use or reuse of technical materials. Practitioners sometimes choose one pathway over the other, but knowledge of which of these pathways yields...

With increasing adoption of modular construction in the residential sector, its adoption in the Dutch healthcare sector is studied. Whilst the initial costs can be higher, this method of construction claims to have cost benefits over conventional construction. These are the benefits of construction speed and residual value at the end of lifespan...

The main motivation for this research originated from two ambitions, which involve many challenges for which circular solutions have to be developed. First, the ambition of the Dutch government to achieve a circular economy, which also includes a circular construction industry, in the Netherlands by 2050 at the latest. Secondly, in line with the...

Technological developments are opening new avenues to facilitate the circular economy through resource recovery from industrial wastewater. This paper presents the use of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Life Cycle Costing (LCC) in the development of technology solutions for the treatment of brine wastewater and recovery of by-products. Four...

This research focuses on identifying and evaluating ways to improve the sustainability of solid waste management (SWM) in semi-public spaces using the Efteling theme park as a case study. To the best of the author’s knowledge, this study is the first to apply an integrated waste management approach to optimize SWM in this context. The approach...

Being one of the world’s largest waste generator, the construction industry is responsible for a train of events such as global warming, climate change, and depletion of natural resources. Materials are exhausted globally to a large extent and the waste produced in the process is not treated properly. A “take-make-dispose” or popularly known as...

Research in the field of servitization as a business strategy is emerging since its first appearance by Vandermerwe, 1988 and later but parallel developments by Goedkoop, 1999. Servitization is the act of selling complete packages of goods and after sales services. Various industry examples present successes with the implementation of the...

The building industry is responsible for the highest resource use, amount of waste and emissions of all industries. The principles of the Circular Economy (CE) could offer an approach to create a more sustainable built environment. For a transition towards a circular built environment, a comprehensive assessment method is needed to support...

High Rate Algae Ponds (HRAPs) are a promising technology for the treatment of municipal wastewater in locations with sufficient space and solar radiation. Algae-based processes do not require aeration, and thus have the potential to be less energy-intensive than activated sludge processes. We used a combination of LCA and LCCA analysis to...

The water crisis is one of the most important global risks influencing humanity. Urbanization as well as economic, social and technological evolution have led to water overconsumption across the world and thus to water scarcity. Industry comprises one of the main water consumers along with agriculture and municipalities. At the same time,...
