he overall purpose of this study is to assess priorities for new environmental accounts in Indonesia. Weuse environmental costs related to air pollution and resource extraction in Indonesia as a measure forpriority. This study uses the damage costs approach to estimate the environmental degradation costsvalue and the Net Present Value (NPV)...

In Europe, emerging organic compounds (EOCs) in groundwater is a growing research area. Prioritisation for monitoring EOCs in Europe was formalised in 2019 through the development of the first voluntary groundwater watch list (GWWL). Despite this, groundwater occurrence data in the peer reviewed literature for Europe has not been reviewed to...

Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) involve hydraulic stimulation of the permeability of deep low-permeable rock formations. This causes the reactivation and opening of pre-existing natural fracture networks and the formation of new fractures. During hydraulic stimulation, injection pressures at the bottom of the injection well can reach...

Ultra-high temperature geothermal wells (>450 °C) have a large potential for increased energy yield as compared to conventional high-temperature geothermal wells (200-300 °C), but several research challenges must be resolved before robust operation in this temperature range can be achieved. In this study, yield- and tensile strength data for...

Air quality warning and forecasting systems are usually based on numerical chemical transport models (CTMs). Those dynamic models perform predictions by simulating the life cycles of the atmospheric components, including emission, transport and removal. However, the accuracy of these CTMs are still limited because of many imperfections, e.g.,...

The potential opportunities of perovskite-based technology to further advance in the photovoltaic field and implement an extensive industrial application, will mainly depend on whether some of its weaknesses, such as current density-voltage (J−V) hysteresis, can be overcome. In this sense, a critical aspect is the understanding and the...

Sorption thermal energy storage (STES) has the potential to have higher energy densities and lower thermal losses compared to conventional thermal storage technologies, and it can contribute to increase the energy grid flexibility and the penetration of intermittent and distributed energy sources. However, STES is a technology still under...

The potential impacts on gross domestic product, employment, and carbon emissions of implementing a circular economy have been modelled at the national and multiregional levels using multiple scenarios. However, there is still no consensus on the magnitude of the impacts of a transition to a circular economy and on whether it will generate a ...

Wake redirection is a wind farm control strategy that aims at increasing the overall power yield of a wind farm. It involves intentional misalignment of the rotors of upstream wind turbines with respect to the wind direction, thereby diverting their wakes aside from downstream turbines. The yaw misalignment angles are typically optimized using...

Mitigation of CO2 emissions in the industrial sector is one of the main climate challenges for the coming decades. This work, carried out within the STEPWISE H2020 project, performs a preliminary techno-economic assessment of the Sorption Enhanced Water Gas Shift (SEWGS) technology when integrated into the iron and steel plant to mitigate CO2...

To a certain extent, the photovoltaics industry is well developed, and the performance and expected yield of standard photovoltaic modules are well documented and researched. However, newer more efficient photovoltaic cell and module technologies are being developed all over the world. Outdoor testing of new photovoltaic technologies is very...

Stratigraphic forward modelling (SFM) provides the means to produce geologically coherent and realistic models. In this paper, we demonstrate the possibility of matching lithological variability simulated with a basin-scale advection-diffusion SFM to a data-rich real-world setting, i.e. the Holocene Rhine-Meuse fluvio-deltaic system in the...

Bolted connections are applied in many aluminium structures. Stainless steel bolts are often preferred over carbon steel bolts in aluminium connections to prevent galvanic corrosion. However, current design standards and guidelines do not allow for using preloaded stainless steel bolts in slip resistant connections, mainly because of a lack of...

Treatment of nano zerovalent iron (nZVI) with lower valent forms of sulfur compounds (sulfidation) has the potential to increase the selectivity and reactivity of nZVI with target contaminants and to decrease inter-particle aggregation for improving its mobility. These developments help in addressing some of the long-standing challenges...

This paper presents the results of an experimental research aimed at assessing the material performance of adobe bricks in compression for a wide range of induced strain rates, from statics to high velocity impact. Adobe connotes a traditional masonry whose bricks are made of sundried soil mixtures possibly reinforced with natural fibres and...

Stimulated by the growing demand for more sustainable polymers, explorative experiments were performed to substitute oil-based components by “green” monomers derived from bio-based compounds to decrease the carbon footprint of the production of such thermosets. The potential of itaconimides synthesised from itaconic anhydride e.g. obtained by...

Control of the morphology of carbon nanotubes (CNT) is fundamental for many applications. It is known that the catalyst distributions influence the vertical alignment and the height of the CNT. In this work we investigate the influence of the pre-anneal time and reductant gases, specifically NH3 and H2 as well as combinations thereof, on the...

Potential investors in bifacial PV systems are still deterred by the uncertainty of energy yield predictions. Validation of the prediction methods and establishing an accuracy range is therefore a central prerequisite concerning the bankability of the bifacial technology. Because of the sensitivity on multiple additional factors compared to...

Urban mining from construction and demolition waste (CDW) is highly relevant for the circular economy ambitions of the European Union (EU). Given the large volumes involved, end-of-life (EoL) concrete is identified as one of the priority streams for CDW recycling in most EU countries, but it is currently largely downcycled or even landfilled....

The research on halide perovskites is in its peak activity at the moment due to the material's potential application in photovoltaics. It is well known that slow processes, from seconds to minutes, are very significant in perovskite films and devices as compared to conventional photovoltaic materials. The kinetics of photoluminescence (PL) is...
