In society, institutions are the foundation that governs human behaviour through rules, norms, and regulations. The actions and interactions of individuals are shaped by these institutions, forming a cyclic system with numerous parameters and factors. Altering any of these factors, triggers the entire system to transition into a new state that...

Anoxygenic purple phototrophic bacteria (PPB) were utilised in an 80 L biofilm flat plate photobioreactor to generate polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) over 44 cycles, with acetate as feed. Over the cycles, net PHA yield (growth + accumulation) averaged 21% while accumulation yield averaged 55%. Average PHA content was 35 wt% volatile solids (VS),...

Measure Correlate Predict (MCP) is a method used to characterize the future wind resource at potential new wind farm locations. It finds a relationship between the wind data obtained at the target site and a nearby reference site over a short time period. This relationship is applied to long-term historical data from the reference site in order...

Sustainability in its development is increasingly focusing on nature. However, this research shows that through positive development, benefits are not only gained in nature, but are actually viewed as a common good. From this emerged regenerative development and design, in which there is a judgement from a whole system perspective. Through the...

Rapid discharge of excess water has always been the core of Dutch water management. Due to climate change, a change in strategy is required. A future-proof drainage strategy consists of three steps: 1) retention, 2) storage, and 3) controlled removal. This thesis comprises the design and evaluation of an algorithm for groundwater-based Model...

The study of water is without question an important one. We can learn a lot by studying the theory but in the end, it is essential to actually go out into the field and see the hydrological processes in practice for ourselves. The educational value of fieldwork lies not only in seeing theory become reality but also in experiencing the...
