Sisal fibre can potentially replace glass fibre in natural fibre composites. This study focuses on the environmental performance of sisal fibre production by quantifying the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy use of producing sisal fibre in Tanzania and Brazil using life cycle assessment (LCA), based on region-specific inventory data. The...

In steden rijden veel brommers en de populariteit van dit vervoermiddel neemt nog steeds toe. Brommers veroorzaken helaas ook overlast in steden, inwoners klagen over parkeeroverlast, stank, lawaai en rijgedrag. Ondanks het feit dat veel over de uitstoot van brommers (lees: brom- en snorfietsen) geklaagd wordt, blijkt uit diverse studies (Eijk &...

Background: In order to curb traffic-related air pollution and its impact on the physical environment, contemporary city commuters are encouraged to shift from private car use to active or public transport modes. However, personal exposures to particulate matter (PM), black carbon and noise during commuting may be substantial. Therefore, studies...

Noise is defined as 'unwanted sound.' Aircraft noise is one, if not the most detrimental environmental effect of aviation. It can cause community annoyance, disrupt sleep, adversely affect academic performance of children, and could increase the risk for cardiovascular disease of people living in the vicinity of airports. In some airports, noise...

Background: Many older persons prefer to live independent as long as possible. A living environment facilitating physical activity may be important for this purpose, but the design of ‘activity-friendly’ living environments for older persons remains less clear. In a study in Spijkenisse (the Netherlands), characteristics of the living...

In the course of 2015 the driving behaviour boundaries for RDE legislation was discussed and proposed in a technical commission in Brussel. In particular aggressive driving was to be excluded from the RDE test. The original proposal did not reflect the experiences with normal driving in on-road testing in the Netherlands. The proposal would mean...

Veel bedrijven in met name de petrochemische industrie zijn er de afgelopen jaren in geslaagd het aantal ongevallen sterk terug te dringen. Een van de middelen die is gebruikt om deze verbetering te bewerkstelligen, is de zogenaamde Kwantitatieve Risico Analyse (QRA). Een QRA is een instrument om de risico's voor een bepaalde activiteit te...

Adverse weather conditions regularly lead to severe congestion and large travel time delays on road networks all over the world. Different climate scenarios indicate that in the future adverse weather conditions are likely to become more frequent, last longer and will be more extreme. Although climate mitigation measures are being taken, it...

Energie is een van onze primaire levensbehoeftes en een belangrijke motor van de economie. Vanaf de negentiende eeuw halen we onze energie vooral uit fossiele brandstoffen. Met deze vrijwel onuitputtelijke bronnen is voor velen de welvaart enorm gegroeid. De laatste decennia is het echter duidelijk geworden dat uitstoot van broeikasgassen,...
