Three-dimensional (3D) printing and geo-polymers are two environmentally oriented innovations in concrete manufacturing. The 3D printing of concrete components aims to reduce raw material consumption and waste generation. Geo-polymer is being developed to replace ordinary Portland cement and reduce the carbon footprint of the binder in the...

The goal of this research is to identify barriers that hinder the development of phosphorus (P)<br/>recycling by the communal water chain. Insights into these barriers can lead to a better<br/>understanding of the situation and can lead to possible solutions to overcome the obstacles. The research shows that P recycling is a complex field with...

The impact of urbanizing 400 million people in China in 20 years - a comparative analysis of common structural materials with bamboo as a promising alternative for (semi) high-rise developments. Transport, End of Life scenarios and Lifespan are essential factors in a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). The Building Energy Use itself is becoming less...

This Master Thesis as presented to the chair of Explore Lab 14 of the TU Delft, deals with the issue of perspective. The problem that architecture is all too often drawn out of a singular perspective and even opposes different modes of perception, is an issue which influences the role of the architect. This problem, generated at the hand of...

Today, most cities function linearly. One way to improve their environmental performance is to make a transition from linear to Circular Urban Systems (CUS) so that part of the waste streams becomes valorised locally. This does not only require technical but also organisational and institutional changes. Moreover it implies that links have to be...

A method is presented that allows for a life cycle assessment (LCA) to provide environmental information on an energy infrastructure system while it evolves. Energy conversion facilities are represented in an agent-based model (ABM) as distinct instances of technologies with owners capable of making decisions based on economic and environmental...
