Begin 2017 kwam via de media naar voren dat manipulatie plaatsvindt van systemen die op vrachtwagens zitten om de schadelijke uitlaatgasemissies terug te dringen. Het manipuleren houdt in dat in een vrachtwagen een kastje wordt ingebouwd of de motorsoftware wordt aangepast zodat het emissiebeheersingssysteem wordt uitgeschakeld. Het uitschakelen...

Background: Exacerbations constitute a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Both bacterial infections, such as those with non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi), and exposures to diesel engine emissions are known to contribute to exacerbations in COPD patients....

De bestelauto is hét werkpaard van bedrijven en zzp'ers in de Nederlandse economie. Niet zonder reden: het vervoermiddel is multifunctioneel en flexibel inzetbaar, en is in vergelijking met (kleinere) vrachtwagens en personenauto's ook nog goedkoop in aanschaf en praktisch in gebruik. Daarnaast volstaat een B-rijbewijs om een bestelauto te mogen...

Emissions from oil/gas extraction activities in the Arctic are already important in certain regions and may increase as global warming opens up new opportunities for industrial development. Emissions from oil/gas extraction are sources of air pollutants, but large uncertainties exist with regard to their amounts and composition. In this study,...

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...

This paper describes a study which gives insight into the size of improvement that is possible with individual in-car routing advice based on the actual traffic situation derived from floating car data (FCD). It also gives an idea about the required penetration rate of floating car data needed to achieve a certain degree of improvement. The...

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...

Building on theories of cue utilization, this paper investigates whether and how packaging sustainability influences consumer perceptions, inferences and attitudes towards packaged products. A framework is tested in an empirical study among 249 students using soup products varying in packaging material and graphics. The findings show that ...

The studies presented in this thesis were performed to provide policy makers with more accurate information about the sources of air pollution and the possible consequences of future developments on air quality. This enables policy makers to make better informed decisions when formulating policies that have consequences for air quality. Harmful...

There is a common and shared, social, long-term goal: achieving future-proof housing, in this project meaning that housing should become at least climate-neutral. Deep retrofitting is necessary for this goal. This is known to be a difficult goal. There are a lot of barriers and only a few drivers. Activities in deep retrofitting remain stuck and...

Freight transport with all modes plays a crucial role for the functioning of economies while simultaneously being responsible for negative external effects such as congestion, noise and various forms of pollution. The need for an efficient and competitive transport system that is also reducing its negative social effects is on top of many policy...

Decarbonising transport is central to achieving Europe’s policy commitments on climate change. The transport sector is expected to deliver a 60% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the EU by 2050. Achieving these commitments is expected to require a complete decarbonisation of the passenger car fleet. The more ambitious COP21...

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...
