Baars, Kim (author)
Empirical studies indicate an increasing inclination towards the adoption of integrated software systems that contribute to project management. To this moment, studies on the implementation of these integrated software systems tended to emphasise the benefit of such software. However, the analytical evidence to support such assumptions is...

Greenhouse horticulture is a key sector in the Netherlands, significantly contributing to the economy and society but also heavily reliant on natural gas, leading to substantial CO2 emissions. The sector, in partnership with the government, aims to achieve climate neutrality by 2040 as part of the Energy Transition Covenant for Greenhouse...

Transition zones in railway tracks, which occur at changes in track form and or substructure properties, are known to cause issues with track degradation. Examples can be found where a track section, usually a ballast track, transits to a slab track to cross a roadway or waterway through supporting structures such as bridges, level crossings,...

In light of transitioning towards a sustainable, low-carbon energy system, NdFeB (Neodymium-Iron-Boron) permanent magnets are set to play a crucial role. These magnets, currently the strongest available, are integral to the functioning of wind turbines, electric cars, and various digital appliances. Their superior performance is attributed to...

Society is facing a critical point of unsustainability, urging the need to accelerate the transition towards a circular economy (CE). This transition not only addresses pressing issues but also unlocks new business opportunities. However, the lack of clarity around its specifics leaves many businesses uncertain about how to best respond,...

Two-dimensional (2D) layered materials have attracted the interest of the scientific community following the discovery of graphene and its extraordinary properties. Of particular interest is a class of materials called transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). The materials within this class were discovered to show similarly...

The transport sector needs to change to meet some of the global challenges we face: climate change, population growth and urbanisation. It needs to become more sustainable, which is why the Netherlands wants to introduce more high-quality bus systems. However, there are some barriers to implementing these systems.<br/><br/>In this thesis,...

Climate change is one of the most dangerous and simultaneously most complex threats humanity has ever faced. The key response to this threat has been an unprecedented strategic shift in the energy sector, known as the<i> energy transition</i>. Electricity powers the modern world and is at the very centre of the energy transition. The shift to...

Historically, Central Asia and agriculture have had a tempestuous relationship. The collapse of the USSR in 1999 put agriculture fully in crisis. Greenhouses, a flourishing sector in the latter days of the USSR, almost fully disappeared. In attempt to gain self-sufficiency in fruit and vegetable production, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan...

Nitrogen is an essential element of planetary life. Yet, human actions create such a surplus of its derivatives like ammonia (NH3) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) that the naturally occurring amounts doubled, causing a cascade of environmental and societal problems.<br/>Our research studies dairy farming in North-West Europe with a focus on the...

The Netherlands holds the title of the world’s second-largest exporter of agricultural goods, primarily due to Wageningen University’s pioneering research and innovation. However, this success has led to significant challenges. Intensive farming practices have strained resources and disrupted local water and soil cycles, sparking protests from...

Oil exploitation of tight reservoirs has gained significant importance lately. Some researchers have defined tight reservoirs as those characterized with permeability lower than 0.1 mD. However, permeability is an absolute value, and tight reservoirs have complex pore systems that require a detailed geological and petrophysical rock...

Since the Industrial Revolution, fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, and natural gas have provided the vast majority of energy used by our globalising civilisation. The rapid growth in energy use in the past 250 years has led to increasing fossil fuel usage, which has been the primary driver behind the ongoing climate emergency. Policy measures in...

The emission of CO2 is a significant contributor to global warming, with the mobility sector being a major source. The EU has set a goal to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, requiring substantial CO2 reduction efforts, particularly in densely populated regions like the Rhine-Delta (RDR). This region’s extensive mobility network, serving both...

Portscapes are one of the most important hubs in the global economic system that facilitate the movement of goods and shape the socio-economic conditions of their surroundings. However, in times of climate change, they face unprec- edented challenges to completely transform their current ways of operating and fully reduce their contribution to a...

Transition zones in railway tracks are locations with an abrupt change in stiffness in the vertical rail supporting structure. These locations are typically located as approaches near engineering structures where there is a sudden change in track substructure. Due to these abrupt changes the dynamic forces of the wheel-rail interaction on the...
