The municipality of Amsterdam has come forth with a request for architecture students of the Technical University of Delft within the studio of Complex Projects to investigate the future challenges of Amsterdam through scenario-research and hence come up with proposed spatial and/or architectural configurations for the year 2050. This all with...

This study is part of a project titled: “Phenolic compounds degradation in AnMBR under mesophilic and thermophilic operation: BioXtreme-following up”.
Phenol is a toxic contaminant found widely in industrial effluents. It is toxic to humans and animals even at very low concentrations. Anaerobic digestion uses phenol as a carbon source and...

In deep polders in the Netherlands the dominant mechanism of salinization is via intense seepage through boils. These are local connections between the surface water and a deep saline aquifer. The study area of this research is the Lissertocht. This catchment, which is located inside the Haarlemmermeerpolder, contains a lot of boils that can...

More than half of Vietnam's national rice production is produced in the Mekong Delta. Many hectares of rice were damaged due to extensive salinity intrusion during the dry season of 2016. The impact of salinity intrusion on rice production is studied by (1) mapping the impact using remote sensing data (MODIS NDVI time-series) and (2)...

Subsurface carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration is a promising technology to reduce the CO2 emission into the atmosphere. After injection into subsurface formation, the carbon dioxide plume can migrate several kilometres until it is fully trapped. Four major mechanisms play an important role in trapping which include structural trapping, residual...

High Temperature Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (HT-ATES) systems can be implemented to store geothermal energy, residual industrial heat and solar heat. Due to the large temperature differences between the injection fluid and ambient groundwater, buoyancy flow occurs, which causes heat losses which in turn results in poor efficiency of such...

Usually, oil fields are developed over three stages. First is the primary oil recovery, where the natural underground pressure is used to drive the oil to the surface. Afterwards is the secondary oil recovery, usually by water flooding or gas injection. However, the water flood yields lower sweep efficiency in heterogeneous reservoirs, contrary...

The Rhine ROFI ( region of freshwater influence) is a dynamic area where various processes and timescales come together. Research has shown that stratification caused by the freshwater outflow of the Rhine alters the tidal currents in front of the Dutch coast. In the case of the Netherlands the tide behaves like a kelvin wave, which causes...

An estuary forms the transition between the ocean/sea and a river. Within its boundaries salt and fresh water mix. Fresh water intake points may be located within the reach of salt intrusion. In order to justify political and managerial decisions it is thus necessary to understand and be able to predict the process of salt intrusion in estuaries...

Oil is one of the major contributors to energy consumption. Oil reserves are expressed as the total amount of economically and technically producible oil. Total oil consumption is increasing (per capita it remains more or less the same) but it has no unambiguous influence on the remaining reserves due to new discoveries. However, increasingly...

Low salinity waterflooding (LSF) is a promising improved oil recovery (IOR) technique. The enhanced composition of injected water in LSF can change the wettability of the formation from oil-wet/ mixed-wet towards a more water-wet state. This leads to improved relative oil permeability (kro). The zeta potential, which is the electric potential at...

Low-salinity flooding (LSF) is an improved-oil-recovery method that consists of injecting brine with lower salinity than conventional formation water into the reservoir rock. This method has the potential to improve the oil recovery beyond conventional waterflooding. In sandstone reservoir rocks, it has been reported that the salinity range...

Low salinity water flooding (LSF) has been proved to be a promising enhanced oil recovery method for sandstone reservoirs. The efficiency of LSF in carbonate reservoirs has not been proven completely yet, because there are still uncertainties about the LSF recovery mechanism in carbonate. From experimental studies, it was shown that wettability...

The city of Itajaí is located in the province of Santa Catharina in Brazil. The people of Itajaí have been coping with flood risk for the past decades. During normal conditions the Itajaí-Açu River is a rather calm river that is used for navigation and the harbour area. Recovering from the past two floods in 2008 and 2011 have cost more than...

“The global ecosystem is the source of all the material inputs feeding the economic subsystem” (Costanza, et al., 1997) and delta regions are the hotspots of such feeding ecosystem. Deltas have been one of the most nutritious and economy sustaining landscapes since the beginning of a human era. They provided food, water, connectivity, and even...

In the Southwest Delta are the main assignments flood defence, freshwater supply, ecology and fragmentation of the urban delta. This fragmentation occurred because urban regions developed on the edge of the estuarine landscape of Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt. The characterless in between landscapes are disturbing the relation between urban regions...

Simulations carried out for low salinity water flooding often do not include geochemical processes. Salt concentration, and thus the salinity, is modelled as a water tracer that does not react with the reservoir formation. The goal of this MSc thesis is to improve the understanding of the influence of geochemical processes on the mixing of...

The fresh water supply will be more under pressure, due to the predicted effects of climate change in the Netherlands. More frequent salt water intrusion during the summer semester is caused by the joint occurrence of low river discharges and the expected sea level rise. The control of external salinity is necessary to guarantee a sufficient...

Membrane fouling problem is one of the most crucial issues which restricts the development of MBR and is, therefore, the prime research topic for many researchers worldwide. Anaerobic MBRs offer interesting perspectives as a potential solution for the treatment of wastewaters under extreme conditions, e.g. high temperature and/or high salt...

The area of New Orleans was hit by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. A large part of the city got flooded due to bad design, construction and maintenance of the levee system. In order to increase the level of protection of the city, the levees are heightened and strengthened in the framework of the Hurricane and Storm Damage and Risk Reduction...
