Reuse of building material is an integral part of making the product circular. However, there is lack of working frameworks and practical tools which can quantify the feasibility of reuse over other choices such as virgin material use or recycling for that matter. Therefore, this research focuses on the development of such a working framework...

Mechanical dredging of a stiff clay results in clay lumps. Those clay lumps can be reused for the construction of land reclamation projects, and hereby economic and environmental value is generated. Placement of the clay lumps<br/>in water result in a matrix of clay lumps and an interlump void space. The collapse of the interlump void space will...

This thesis started with the question of ‘’What is the necessity of all packaging in food products?’’. The problem of packaging waste is undeniable, an example of the cause of packing to the environment is the ‘’plastic soup’’. Plastic packaging degrades over time, which produces microplastics. Microplastics accumulate in the environment and...
