Objectives: This study aimed to assess the prevalence of awake bruxism and sleep bruxism in the Dutch adolescent population. Materials and methods: As part of a large epidemiologic survey on oral health of the general Dutch adolescent population in 2017, a total of 920 subjects were asked about their bruxism behaviour during daytime and during...

Nowadays, nearly 50% of the hydrogen produced worldwide comes from Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) at an environmental burden of 10.tCO2,eq/tH2 accelerating the consequences of global warming. One way to produce clean hydrogen is via methane pyrolysis using melts of metals and salts. Compared to SMR, significant less CO2 is produced due to...

To lower CO2 emissions, policy makers want to integrate as much variable renewable energy (VRE) as possible into power systems. This has been translated into targets for VRE as a share of total electricity generation and policies that aim to maximize the use of electricity available from VRE sources. However, in this paper we demonstrate that it...

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 ...

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...

With energy transition gaining momentum, energy storage technologies are increasingly spotlighted as they can effectively handle mismatches in supply and demand. The decreasing cost of distributed energy generation technologies and energy storage technologies as well as increasing demand for local flexibility is opening up new possibilities for...

Introduction: Cost-effectiveness (CEA) and cost–utility analyses (CUA) have become popular types of economic evaluations (EE) used for evidence-based decision-making in healthcare resource allocation. Newborn screening programs (NBS) can have significant clinical benefits for society, and cost-effectiveness analysis may help to select the...

This individual participant data meta-analysis assessed the effectiveness of workplace health promotion programmes on body mass index (BMI) across socio-economic groups and whether study and intervention characteristics explained inequalities in effectiveness. Studies were eligible if they assessed the effect of a workplace health promotion...

Background: Declines in employment protection may have disproportionate effects on employment opportunities of workers with low education and poorer health. This study investigates the impact of changes in employment protection levels on employment rates according to education and health in 23 European countries. Methods: Data were taken from...

Herein, we describe a study of the electrochemical reduction of oxalic and glyoxylic acids toward a feasible green and sustainable production of tartaric acid in aqueous and/or acetonitrile solvent using silver and lead electrodes. Our results show that on the silver electrode, for both oxalic acid and glyoxylic acid, the reduction reaction is...

A techno-economic assessment on upgrading routes involving washing and torrefaction is presented for roadside grass, straw and miscanthus. Washing followed by torrefaction (prewash) and torrefaction followed by washing (postwash) is compared for straw. Mass and energy balances were calculated, based on previous experimental test results....

In 2016, the European Commission launched the EU-ToxRisk research project to develop and promote animal-free approaches in toxicology. The 36 partners of this consortium used in vitro and in silico methods in the context of case studies (CSs). These CSs included both compounds with a highly defined target (e.g. mitochondrial respiratory chain...

Technical ceramic parts can be produced by curing ceramic-filled resins in the vat photopolymerization (stereolithography) process. Scaling up to larger ceramic product sizes and higher product quality calls for the integration of more sensing, actuation and closed-loop control solutions while taking a systems engineering approach.

The BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) and MINT countries (Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria, Turkey) shifted the economic weight from developed to emerging countries. They will continue to grow rapidly by population and gross domestic product (GDP), which could also imply environmental changes. We use the environmentally extended multi-regional input...

Image-based Electro-Optical system simulation including an end-to-end performance test is a powerful tool to characterize a camera system before it has been built. In particular, it can be used in the design phase to make an optimal trade-off between performance on the one hand and SWaPC (Size, Weight, Power and Cost) criteria on the other....

We investigate the hypothesis that long-term memory in populations of agents can lead to counterproductive emergent properties at the system level. Our investigation is framed in the context of a discrete, one-dimensional road-traffic congestion model: we investigate the influence of simple cognition in a population of rational commuter agents...
