The River Dommel is a modest-sized and ecologically sensitive stream located in the southern region of the Netherlands, covering a catchment area of 153,000 hectares. Its primary water source is rainwater, supplemented by a minor contribution from groundwater, particularly notable in the upstream portion of the catchment. Nevertheless, rainwater...

The shift to sustainable energy sources has increased demand for Energy Transition Metals such as nickel, copper, cobalt, and manganese. To satisfy this need while reducing the negative social and environmental effects of conventional mining, Deep-sea Nodule Collection (DSNC) appears to be a feasible option. Despite its potential, DSNC...

Navigating miners during an evacuation using smart evacuation technology can significantly decrease the evacuation time of an underground mine in case of emergency hazards. This paper presents a mathematical programming model to calculate the most efficient escape path for miners as a critical component of smart evacuation technology. In this...

Sequence data mining has become an increasingly popular research topic as the availability of data has grown rapidly over the past decades. Sequence clustering is a type of method within this field that is in high demand in the industry, but the sequence clustering problem is non-trivial and, as opposed to static cluster analysis,...

Implementing a circular economy in cities has been proposed by policy makers as a potential solution for achieving sustainability in the construction sector. One strategy that has gained interest by both policy makers and companies is to develop “circular construction hubs”: locations that collect, store, and redistribute waste as secondary...

Circular economy has become a popular subject, attracting attention from academics, practitioners, and policy-makers alike. However, despite the excitement surrounding it, the concept of circular economy has been criticized for being vague and having multiple interpretations from different fields. As a result, there is a lack of evidence and...

Turbidity currents have extensively been explored in quiescent environments. However, during several underwater activities (e.g., dredging and deep sea mining), generated turbidity currents could travel in opposite directions and interact with each other, which could largely influence their hydrodynamics and sediment transport capacity....

Hydraulic transport pipelines in the dredging, mining and deep sea mining are designed using steady-state methods. However, these methods cannot predict density wave formation. Density waves form a risk for pipeline blockages, therefore there is a need to understand and preferably be able to model the process. The density waves studied in...

Minimum Liquid Discharge (MLD) and Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) schemes have been widely proposed in the recent scientific literature not only as a possible solution to brine disposal but also as a non-conventional sustainable source of raw materials. Nevertheless, very few works have pushed the idea towards a real demonstration activity, and...

Coandă-effect-based collection stands out as the foremost technology in polymetallic-nodule mining due to the absence of direct contact between the collector and the ocean floor. Yet, this collection method disturbs the ocean floor, and minimizing such disturbance is crucial from an environmental viewpoint. To this end, a solid understanding of...

Haul truck driving remains to be the most dangerous occupation in the mining industry (Kecojevic et al., 2007), leading in fatalities over other occupations in the mining industry. As the transition to autonomous haul trucks over the coming decades will not address thisproblem today, an immediate solution is needed that can be adopted at short...

The Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium were hit by heavy and prolonged precipitation in July 2021. As time passed, weather warnings escalated, leading to evacuations due to predicted floods, including in the Rur catchment. It was difficult to forecast the flooding of the Rur, raising the question of which elements are crucial in a flood...

The mining industry is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and operational costs. The transportation of materials within mining operations, especially using diesel-powered trucks, accounts for a substantial portion of both emissions and costs. Optimizing fuel consumption in this context is crucial for environmental...

This study is an analysis of sand mining in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta (VMD) with the use of the optical satellite data set PlanetScope. This is done with a detection and classification model of sand mining vessels in the VMD. The classification model is based on machine-learning and it is trained with three classes: sand mining vessels, other...
