The construction sector is responsible for a substantial share of adverse environmental impacts from materials usage, waste generation, energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, the construction sector is a major creator of economic and societal value. Retrofitting existing residential buildings can contribute to the achievement...

To ensure a circular economy for plastics, insights in the environmental impacts of recycling and optimal recycling choices for specific plastic polymers are crucial. This was obtained by determining the environmental performance of 10 selected recycling technologies with varying TRL levels, using the chemical properties of the top 25 produced...

Estimating the environmental impact of emerging technologies at different stages of developmentis uncertain but necessary to guide investment, research, and development. Here, we propose asystematic procedure to assess the future impacts of emerging technologies. In the technologydevelopment stage (technology readiness level < 9), the...

Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) have become a well-known practice in DevOps to ensure fast delivery of new features. This is achieved by automatically testing and releasing new software versions, e.g. multiple times per day. However, classical security management techniques cannot keep up with this quick Software...

Circular business models (CBMs) and their potential environmental benefits have been widely assessed by using life cycle assessment (LCA). However, most LCA studies consider static systems and assume instant and full technology adoption, limiting the analysis of the implications of circular transitions. Considering technology diffusion in LCA...

In this study, we performed a life cycle assessment of the reuse of biomass fly ash as secondary cementitious material in cement mortars as alternative to a reference landfill scenario of the ash. Since biomass ash does contain enhanced levels of elements that are of potential concern for the environment or human exposure, the performed Life...

The increasing use of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) in nano-enabled products (NEPs) has raised societal concerns about their possible health and ecological implications. To ensure a high level of human and environmental protection it is essential to properly estimate the risks of these new materials and to develop adequate risk management...

Environmental analysis should be performed early in the Research and Development (R&D) phases of new technologies to timely determine potential impact and, thereby, include prevention and minimization of unfavorable ecological impact into the innovation process. Here, we demonstrate the application of anticipatory Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) on...

The carbon footprint of shale gas combusted in Europe was estimated from nine European shale gas plays as potential production regions. Greenhouse gas emission sources during shale gas production, such as fugitives from hydraulic fracturing or combustion emissions from horizontal drilling, were added to emissions occurring for conventional gas...

The exploitation of subsurface hydrocarbon reservoirs is achieved through the control of production and injection wells (i.e., by prescribing time-varying pressures and flow rates) to create conditions that make the hydrocarbons trapped in the pores of the rock formation flow to the surface. The design of production strategies to exploit these...

The increasing volume of Construction and demolition waste (CDW) associated with economic growth is posing challenges to the sustainable management of the built environment. The largest fraction of all the CDW generated in the member states of the European Union (EU) is End-of-life (EOL) concrete. The most widely applied method for EOL concrete...

The urgency with which the world economy needs to be decarbonized could lead to the emergence of regions with the capacity to produce renewable feedstock such as biomass. The competitiveness of these regions could result from their ability to produce high value-added chemicals at the lowest cost. The biomass embodied in a chemical product could...
