Plastic pollution is a well-known problem worldwide, and is still growing. It negatively affects humans and wildlife through animal death, groundwater pollution and incorporation of micro plastics in our digestive system. There are many initiatives focusing on reducing the negative effects of plastic pollution, but the amount of plastic consumed...

In Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) for rapid-prototyping, the 3D printed parts usually have a short life, generating a constant stream of waste material and lost value. This issue becomes more relevant in the early stages of product development, where 3D printed prototypes become rapidly obsolete due to design iterations and advances in the...

Aluminium recycling is a crucial process when it comes to recycling of metals. To make the metal industry part of a circular economy, this process must be efficient and for the interest of companies it should be economical. Singulation is such a process which does both the tasks. In this work, aluminium scrap recycling has been positioned as a...

Nowadays environmental issues like the depletion of the natural resources and the pollution of the environment have led many researchers to make new projects about the reuse of waste from construction and demolition again in concrete industry. Among available solutions are the partial replacement of cement with recycled ultrafine particles (RUP)...

In circular concrete design, beside cement replacement with more environmentally friendly cement types, there is also an urgent need for sand replacement with fine recycled concrete aggregates (fRCA). The variations in physical and chemical properties of fRCA and lack of standards for their quality evaluation are the main reasons for not yet...

Electronics containing growing quantities of high value and critical metals are increasingly used in automobiles. The conventional treatment practice for end-of-life vehicles (ELV) is shredding after de-pollution and partial separation of spare parts. Despite opportunities for resource recovery, the selective separation of components...

This study focuses on formulating the most sustainable concrete by incorporating recycled concrete aggregates and other products retrieved from construction and demolition (C&D) activities. Both recycled coarse aggregates (RCA) and recycled fine aggregates (RFA) are firstly used to fully replace the natural coarse and fine aggregates in...

In the current built environment, the three main glass elements are glass window blocks, (structural) float glass and (structural) glass bricks. Float glass is the most used type of glass element and it is evolving from a skin material to a structural material. Glass hollow blocks became popular in the 1930s, but have lost their appeal due to...

During the production of steel, a dust waste stream is created that contains a significant amount of zinc which makes it difficult to treat and to recycle. Various furnaces have been developed that can deal with those dusts like rotary hearth furnaces and the DK process but none are fully optimal yet. HIsarna, a furnace in development by Tata...

In the recent years, the circular economy (CE) has emerged as an alternative to current linear economic models with prospects of achieving the decoupling of environmental impacts from economic growth. To this end, CE models focus on the permanence of products, materials, and value in the economy, eliminating as much waste as possible. In waste...

The transition to a renewable electricity system requires more intensive material use, causing problem shifting in environmental impacts. To conserve resources for the future and mitigate environmental impact, circular economy principles are needed. This study analyses material flows in Dutch wind energy towards 2050 to identify the potential...

Despite the increased popularity of the application of load bearing glass in the built environment, its design does rarely address sustainable or circular aspects. This Master’s Thesis analyses what the influence of connections is on the sustainable performance of structural glass and informs about the limitations and possibilities of sustainable...

The project site in Anderlecht, Belgium exists a fragmented urban fabric in terms of morphological evolution in the post-industrial period, functional mix of the urban plot, connection with the immediate urban grains and the ephemeral state of ownership of spaces around the site. However, the nomadic site actors practise informal ‘urban mining’...

As the population increases so does the waste that is generated. Manually recycling waste is expensive and slow. Computer Vision (CV) solutions aim to make this less expensive and faster. Lots of data of this waste (thousands of images) is needed to train these CV solutions. This project, called Synthetic Waste Generator (SWaG) can create...

The changing climate and the need for a new purpose for End-of-Life concrete increased the importance and interest of concrete recycling. To decrease the environmental footprint of concrete, in which cement has the highest contribution, it would be of great importance to be able to recycle cement, which would positively affect the environment....
