The lock of Hansweert, located in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands, serves as a crucial inland shipping node between the Western Scheldt estuary and the Rhine Delta. The outer harbour of the lock complex provides the connection to the Western Scheldt and accommodates waiting facilities for inland ships. The Western Scheldt is a vital...

At speeds roughly between five and ten thousand km/h, hypersonic aircraft offer the promise of an extremely fast means of transport. Growing concerns about climate warming, however, direct attention to sustainability. This thesis focuses on atmospheric composition and radiation changes by considering a range of individual hypersonic aircraft...

The current global environmental crisis has resulted in increased efforts towards more efficient and sustainable industrial processes. High-temperature heat between 150 ◦C & 400 ◦C accounts for a major part of the energy demand in industrial processes. At the same time, large quantities of waste heat are unutilised at temperatures up to 200 ...

This research critically examines Dutch water boards' journey towards the circular use of dredged sediment, set against the backdrop of water boards’ ambitious targets for circularity. Water boards, carrying the majority of responsibility for regional dredging, must navigate the surplus of approximately 40 million cubic meters of dredged...

In the coming years, the Netherlands is expected to face various climate change-related challenges. Until 2030, the Dutch government has set the goal for the development of nearly a million dwellings (De Jonge, 2022), whereby 600,000 dwellings are being carried out in areas prone to flooding (Deltares, Bosch Slabbers, & Sweco, 2021;...

The Dutch drinking water utilities are legally responsible for supplying drinking water to their assigned customer base. Continuing to supply drinking water for the long term is coming under pressure from challenges on the supply side, related to water quality and quantity on the one hand and developments due to increasing demand for drinking...

We humans evolved in nature, but over the years we moved from being a part of nature to being apart from nature. This causes our mental health, with stress as the most important aspect, to suffer from our modern life in the city. A significant challenge we face is finding ways to integrate nature into our build environment for stress relief. A...

"What if the dikes were to break? How can we then live with the water in the most beautiful way?" The Netherlands has a long history of battling against the water. It is high time to embrace the water in a new vision for the Netherlands called "PLAN B: Future waterscapes."<br/><br/>“PLAN B: Future waterscapes” is a utopian vision, building upon...

In this work, the correlation between electrolyte transport properties and the variation of pigment volume concentration (PVC) in a series of organic coatings is explored. Using an odd random phase electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (ORP-EIS) approach, the diffusion of ions independent from water take-up is analysed. A higher PVC resulted...

Evolutionary Multi-Objective Direct Policy Search (EMODPS) is a prominent framework for designing control policies in multi-purpose environmental systems, combining direct policy search with multi-objective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs) to identify Pareto approximate control policies. While EMODPS is effective, the choice of functions...

Ecological Urbanism and Water Sensitive Urban Design have a central contribution to make in protecting and caring for people, nature and water in cities but readings of Urban Political Ecology evidence how ecological metaphors in urban design can easily translate into discriminatory urban development processes. This paper posits that for UPE...

In response to pressing global challenges like climate change, rapid population growth, and an urgent need for sustainable infrastructure, cities face an immediate and crucial necessity to transition swiftly toward an integrated approach to managing urban water resources. This shift is not merely an option but an imperative, driven by the...

The surface of supported heterogeneous catalysts often contains adsorbed water and hydroxyl groups even when water is not directly added to the reaction stream. Nonetheless, the reactivity of adsorbed water and hydroxyl groups is rarely considered. We demonstrate that water and hydroxyl groups can not only directly participate in the...

Ceramic nanofiltration (NF) is a promising alternative for direct surface water treatment, but is hampered for full-scale applications by fouling and a lack of eco-friendly cleaning regimes. In this work, an innovative reactive pre-coat layer, consisting of an iron oxychloride catalyst, was constructed on top of commercial ceramic NF...

Around 90% of the oceanic and inland waters’ reflectance registered in satellite detectors comes from the atmospheric contribution. Hence the water-leaving radiances in the Near-InfraRed (NIR) region are above the zero value over inland waters because of sediments and dissolved organic particles, this radiance cannot be ignored. To accurately...
