Chemical plants face safety hazards and security threats that may induce catastrophic scenarios. Safety and security barriers are employed widely to protect chemical plants from accidental and intentional undesired events and mitigate consequences. Managing safety and security barriers effectively and economically is a research topic with...

The application of vertical greening systems (VGS) onto building envelopes constitutes an innovative way to implement more green in the living environment. Especially in dense urban areas, where only limited space is available to integrate more horizontal greening at ground level, VGS have the potential to contribute towards creating a greener,...

One of the fundamental goals for the success of a construction project is found to be completion within the budget. To reach this goal, cost estimation is a key process which can be divided into the estimation of direct and indirect costs. Unlike direct costs, indirect costs are not directly connected with the performance of any particular...

The Iron and Steel (I&S) industry is the largest contributor to man-made greenhouse gas emissions. The products of the I&S industry are a constant necessity, e.g. for civil infrastructure. In addition, their processes are interwoven with coal and natural gas properties, which classifies this industry as a ’hard-to-abate’ sector....

Heat pumps (HPs) which use low temperature (waste) heat and renewable energy sources to provide high temperature heat are widely regarded as a critical technology for reducing carbon dioxide emissions in the industrial sector. The HighLift technology considered here can provide high temperature output heat up to around 200 °C. This article...

Climate change is changing the world. Where previously efficient use of materials was mainly applied to realize cost savings, this can also help to reduce the footprint of a construction. There is a rather direct and obvious relationship between the amount of material required in a construction and its environmental impact. Of course, the...

The workflow of a data science practitioner includes gathering information from different sources and applying machine learning (ML) models. Such dispersed information can be combined through a process known as Data Integration (DI), which defines relations between entities and attributes. When all information is combined in one source suited...

Glioma progression is monitored by routine MR scanning, enabling tumor growth evaluation with respect to earlier time-points. This growth may present both as a mass effect and as an extension of abnormalities into previously healthy tissue. To accurately quantify tumor growth and tumor-induced deformations, longitudinal intrasubject image...

The aim of this research was to investigate the effects of implementing circularity in infrastructural construction projects. As a very polluting sector, circularity is becoming a more and more popular theme in the construction industry. Driven by both governmental regulations of reaching a full circular economy in 2050 and intrinsic motivation,...

Sea level rise will increase the risk of flooding in coastal areas. This poses a risk to the coastal protection as well as rivers and lakes close to the coast. Solutions are needed to cope with this threat. The past decade, nature based solutions have gained significant interest. One of these solutions could be sandy foreshores. Due to the use...

Consumer products produced in contemporary times face the issue of deteriorating durability, repairability and service life compared to products of yesterday. This deterioration is part of a bigger issue called planned obsolescence. Due to a ‘need’ to buy new products regularly, there is rampant consumerism which has created a decrease in raw...

Vopak has the vision to become climate neutral by 2050 (Scope 1 and 2 emissions). Currently, over 99% of its CO2 emissions originate from storage terminal activities. Action must be taken to reduce these emissions by converting the current (fossil fuel-based) generation of electricity to sustainable energy.<br/><br/>This study aims to research...

This report explains the design of an information tool, created to help shippers inform themselves on the emission reducing actions available to reduce road freight transport emissions. Different emission reducing actions for road freight transport are researched and compared based on emission reducing potential and cost. These different...

Over the last few years, the construction sector has experienced increasing demand for raw materials due to the rapid growth of the urban population. At the same time, most of the post-war buildings in Europe have reached the end of their service life. As a consequence, a period of intense demolition activities with<br/>significant waste...

The brine generated from desalination is a threat to the environment, and its disposal has been a great challenge. A new concept Zero liquid discharge (ZLD) can minimize the environmental impact of brine. However, the high costs for construction and running of a ZLD plant limits its growth in desalination market. Therefore, a new strategy...

Waste generation is one of the main environmental problems and is a result of the current linear economy. Materials/elements are used whereafter they are wasted which is a problem considering the finite material supply on earth. Therefore, the current linear economy needs to move towards a circular one in which materials are reused and thus kept...

Acoustic Force Spectroscopy (AFS) is a versatile tool that uses sound waves to manipulate tiny particles such as cells, bacteria, and even zebrafish embryos in microfluidic systems. This kind of acoustic tweezer is gaining increasing attention due to its high throughput capability and non-invasiveness. In addition, this device allows for...

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has created a renewed focus on both climate change and security of supply of energy. The European Commission’s Green Deal highlights the importance of the clean energy carrier ’low-carbon hydrogen’ to combat climate change. Simultaneously, in the new REPowerEU package, the European Commission emphasises the...

In order to understand the impact of new infrastructure projects, appraisal tools are used to estimate the impact it will have on society. Infrastructure is a key part of society, enabling and disabling society to work and live, playing a vital part in everyone’s lives. Former studies by Annema, Frenken, et al. (2017), Niek Mouter (2017b) and...
