The transition towards sustainable and resource efficient urban water systems is a major challenge nowadays. To meet the high demands of urban life resources need to be efficiently used and resource recovery from generated “waste” streams should become a “new normal”. Water and wastewater can provide an alternative and environmentally viable...

Nowadays, the high rate of urban population growth due to immigration and scarcity of land has significantly increased the need for new high-rise dwellings. Meanwhile, the recent building regulations require buildings to be highly energy-efficient to reduce the building’s impact on the environment. However, the inherent characteristics of these...

This study aimed at evaluating the nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from membrane bioreactors (MBRs) for wastewater treatment. The study investigated the N2O emissions considering multiple influential factors over a two-year period: (i) different MBR based process configurations; (ii) wastewater composition (municipal or industrial); (iii)...

The effect of disruptive technologies unrelated to the energy sector, such as additive manufacturing (AM), tends to be overlooked in energy scenarios. The present research assessed the potential effect of AM on the global energy demand in four energy scenarios for 2050 with extended versus limited globalisation and limited versus extensive...

To limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius in 2100, the European power sector needs to transform. Renewable energy capacity is required to reach this ambition, together with transmission and storage capacity to maintain grid stability. Carbon capture and storage could potentially decrease the required renewable energy capacity, while...

Introduction There is almost unanimous agreement among scientists that climate change is a fact. Burning fossil fuels as the conventional energy sources are the problem of global warming. Nowadays energy and climate are like two coin sides??problems, are confronting knotty conditions especially lying on economic dependency on fossil fuels and...

This review focuses on the effect of global warming on droughts, rainstorms and floods and related water quality of rivers. Relations of temperature, rainstorms and river discharges with water quality variables like water temperature, chemical concentrations and microbiological activity are discussed. Examples out of literature are given, mainly...

Climate variations from last century show a global warming trend. Evidence from the past reveals that the anthropogenic greenhouse effect caused changes in climate parameters (temperature, precipitation and evaporation) at the European scale as well. On long-term this might have essential impact on temporal and spatial distribution of water...

TARA, a unique radar system recently developed at the International Research Centre for Telecommunications Transmission and Radar (irctr) of tu delft, can be used to observe the formation of precipitation and various other physical processes that occur in clouds. This provides important information that is used to map the effects of global...
