Carbon trading sets a price on greenhouse gases (GHG), enabling countries and companies to buy emission rights. The carbon market includes the compliant market, regulated by governments, and the voluntary carbon market (VCM), which lacks strict regulation and allows anyone to offset emissions. In the VCM, carbon credits are created through...

Nanomechanical tests to investigate Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating abrasive wear behavior were carried out under different load and strain rate conditions. Nanomechanical tests performed include nanoindentation, single and multi-asperity scratching tests. Characterization methods used are confocal optical microscopy, SEM/EDS, and (high...

Souaid, C. (author)
This thesis examines the potential of small, low-carbon, (near) zero-energy dwellings as a solution that would both address sustainability challenges and answer to the growing housing shortage in North-West Europe. It adopts a multidimensional outlook that encompasses institutional, social and technical aspects surrounding the dwellings. The...

To combat global warming, it is crucial to eliminate CO2 emissions by 2050, especially since a third of global emissions are attributed to the building and construction industry. This sector's carbon footprint comprises operational emissions from daily activities and embodied carbon throughout a building's lifecycle. However, as buildings become...

In the light of climate change and environmental challenges such as a nitrogen crisis, a decreasing biodiversity and waterlogging, the Dutch government is trying to build 900 000 homes by 2030 while aiming for a reduction of 55% of CO2 in the construction industry. Biobased topping-up of existing tenement flats is proposed as a solution to...

Through molecular dynamics simulations, we demonstrate the possibility of internal resonances in single-walled carbon nanotubes. The resonant condition is engineered with a lack of symmetry in the boundary condition and activated by increasing the energy exchange with a coupled thermal bath. The critical temperature threshold for initiating...

As an emerging class of materials, nanocarbons have attracted significant interest for practical applications due to their remarkable mechanical, electrical and thermal properties coupled with high surface areas and tunable surface chemistry. However, challenges like high aspect ratios and poor dispersibility in polymer matrices hinder their...

Organic micropollutants (OMPs) enter the aquatic environment via municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). As conventional WWTPs have limited capacity for the removal of OMPs, additional processes are required, like ozone - granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration. A specific lay-out of this process is the O3-STEP® process, in which the...

The gas dynamics of single-phase nonreacting fluids whose thermodynamic states are close to vapor-liquid saturation, close to the vapor-liquid critical point, or in supercritical conditions differs quantitatively and qualitatively from the textbook gas dynamics of dilute, ideal gases. Due to nonideal fluid thermodynamic properties,...

(Bio)fouling is the most common problem in membrane processes used in water production. It is also a reported unavoidable problem, with mitigation strategies being frequently ineffective in addressing this problem. An ultrapure water plant (UPW) in Emmen (The Netherlands), fed with secondary effluent, comprises the following subsequent...

Activated carbon is employed for the adsorption of organic micropollutants (OMPs) from water, typically present in concentrations ranging from ng L<sup>−1</sup> to μg L<sup>−1</sup>. However, the efficacy of OMP removal is considerably deteriorated due to competitive adsorption from background dissolved organic matter (DOM), present at...

A major global marine transgression occurred during the Callovian to Early Kimmeridgian, which was interrupted locally by a hiatus during the Late Callovian to Early Oxfordian. The transgression may have been a major driver for extensive coral buildup development in the Oxfordian. The depositional hiatus may be related to a combination of...

Energy piles, a technology integrating the heat exchange component within building pile foundations for shallow geothermal energy utilization, have proven economically efficient. They outperform conventional ground source heat pumps by mitigating additional borehole costs and space requirements. This paper systematically examines low-carbon...

The configuration of the urban built environment is critical for promoting sustainability and achieving carbon neutrality. However, existing studies mostly use linear and spatial econometric models to investigate the relationship between urban built environments and traffic carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) emissions, in-depth studies exploring...

Developing high-performance carbonaceous anode materials for sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) is still a grand quest for a more sustainable future of energy storage. Introducing sulfur within a carbon framework is one of the most promising attempts toward the development of highly efficient anode materials. Herein, a microporous sulfur-rich carbon...

Carbon dioxide capture and reduction (CCR) process emerges as an efficient catalytic strategy for CO<sub>2</sub> capture and conversion to valuable chemicals. K-promoted Cu/Al<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> catalysts exhibited promising CO<sub>2</sub> capture efficiency and highly selective conversion to syngas (CO + H<sub>2</sub>). The dynamic...

Carbonated water flooding (CWI) increases oil production due to favorable dissolution effects and viscosity reduction. Accurate modeling of CWI performance requires a simulator with the ability to capture the true physics of such process. In this study, compositional modeling coupled with surface complexation modeling (SCM) are done, allowing...

To achieve the European Union's goal of climate neutrality by 2050, negative emissions may be required to compensate for emissions exceeding allocated carbon budgets. Therefore, carbon removal technologies such as bioenergy with carbon capture (BECCS) and direct air capture (DAC) may need to play a pivotal role in the power system. To design...
