Long truck queues and congestion around terminals is a common sight, however they come with many negative externalities for all the stakeholders involved. Truck Appointment System (TAS) is the most commonly used system to face these problems, but it still has some drawbacks and limitations. Consequently, in this research an extension of the...

Indonesia has committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2060, with emphasis on the electricity sector eliminating harmful gas emissions by that year. Using the Balmorel energy model, this study simulated the impact of the target on optimal capacity expansion, electricity production mix, emissions, and electricity supply costs across 230...

Microplastics (MPs), miniscule plastic particles measuring less than 5 mm in size, have become a concern in terrestrial ecosystems, with primarily agricultural and wetland soils being the soils with highest plastic loadings. The adverse effect of MPs might lead to changes in physicochemical and biological characteristics of soil including...

As the global population continues to increase, so does its dependance on food, which has led to the development of more efficient food production methods. Greenhouse horticulture and genetically modified seeds have increased crop yield and decreased water and energy consumption. However, delicate greenhouse-grown vegetables continue to...

In recent years, the agricultural sector has seen significant techno- logical improvements under the flag of precision agriculture, assisting farmers in the manageability that coincides with large-scale farming. Moreover, precision agriculture aims to enable plant-specific farming on the macro scale that is demanded by the current global...

In existing standards for photovoltaic (PV) plants, little guidance is provided in the spatial allocation of pyranometers. No universal and easily scalable algorithms exist that help designers of monitoring infrastructure in solar parks choose the most representative positions for irradiance sensors. <br/><br/>To fill this gap, a software tool...

Humanitarian, environmental, and political concerns have contributed to the evolution of agricultural technology, also known as AgTech. Researchers from various scientific backgrounds are diving into AgTech to ensure the world's food security, create a sustainable future for agriculture, and pave the way for autonomous cultivation methods. This...

A method to help renewables flourish is mitigating the variability that is inherent in natural resources. To do so, we explore the intricacies of the relationship between airborne wind (AWE) and solar energy to uncover the possibilities of future energy-generating hybrid power plants (HPP). Which leads to steering away from fossil fuel reliance,...

To extract raw materials responsibly and sustainably, the minerals industry has to continuously optimise the mine-to-metal process and requires an entirely different valuation model. Currently, most operational decisions (e.g., ore-waste boundaries, short-term scheduling, blending policies, dispatch decisions) are evaluated using a revenue-based...

Mastrodimos, Panagiotis (author)
The penetration of the renewable energy sources in the global market has been constantly growing over the last years. This trend is expected to accelerate even more in the future due to the improving technologies, the economies of scale, the competitive supply chains and the improving developer experience. The main challenge for a faster and...

Dredged cohesive sediment is progressively being used for wetland construction. However, little is known about the effect of plant growth during the self-weight consolidation of this sediment. In order to check the feasibility of such a study, a new experimental setup has been constructed. As an example, the effect of Phragmites australis on the...

Drinking water treatment plants (DWTPs) are designed to remove physical, chemical, and biological contaminants. However, until recently, the role of DWTPs in minimizing the cycling of antibiotic resistance determinants has got limited attention. In particular, the risk of selecting antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB) is largely overlooked in...

Meshed offshore grids (MOGs) present a viable option for a reliable bulk power transmission topology. The station-level control of MOGs requires faster dynamics along with multiple objective functions, which is realized by the model predictive control (MPC). This paper provides control, and protection design for the Modular Multilevel...

Tracing and quantifying water fluxes in the hydrological cycle is crucial for understanding the current state of ecohydrological systems and their vulnerability to environmental change. Especially the interface between ecosystems and the atmosphere that is strongly mediated by plants is important to meaningfully describe ecohydrological...

Film forming amines (FFA) are corrosion inhibitors added to power plant water. The major concern associated with their application is the thermal stability in the high temperature power plant water medium, along with the risk of decomposition into low molecular weight organic acids that can cause corrosive damages in the water/steam cycle....

Fluid flow processes such as drainage and evaporation in porous media are crucial in geological and biological systems. The motion of the displacement front of a moving fluid through multi-phase interfaces is often associated with abrupt mechanical energy release, detectable as acoustic emissions (AEs). The exact origin of these pulses and...

Plant root growth can be altered by introducing obstacles in the path of growth. This principle is used in design to produce planar grid structures composed of interweaving roots. The Engineered Plant Root Materials (EPRMs) grown with this method have the potential to serve as environmentally sensitive alternatives for conventional materials,...

With the proliferation of distributed energy resources (DERs), electricity consumers in virtual power plants (VPPs) are transitioning into prosumers and are encouraged to share surplus energy with peers. Nevertheless, large-scale energy sharing among thousands of prosumers may encounter communication-related challenges. Communication network...
