Modern energy systems use large amounts of water for electric power production. This has important impacts on future water management and energy system planning decisions. In this study, we quantify the physical water use of power production and virtual water transfer via power transmission between Chinese provinces using the information on 5408...

Sorption-enhanced reverse water–gas shift (SE-RWGS, here designated as ‘COMAX’) was studied with bifunctional reactive sorbents. First proof-of-concept is presented of the successful design of a multifunctional reactive sorbent, which combines CO2 activation and water adsorption functionalities in an integrated reactive sorbent, i.e. the active...

The first systematic research of the geo-hydrogeological and hydrogeochemical characteristics and isotopic signatures was carried out in the transboundary karstic aquifer in northeast of Iran, in order to investigate the groundwater origin, flow directions and karst development. The karstic springs of the area are characterized by discharge rate...

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...

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...

In southwestern Bangladesh, clean drinking water is scarce, since rainwater is only available during the monsoon, pond water is often bacteriologically polluted, and groundwater may exhibit high salinity and arsenic levels. Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) might potentially provide safe drinking water by storing abundant freshwater from the wet...

The acceptance of newly implemented, safe drinking water options is not guaranteed. In the Khulna and Satkhira districts, Bangladesh, pond water is pathogen-contaminated, while groundwater from shallow tubewells may be arsenic- or saline-contaminated. This study aims to determine why, as well as the extent to which, people are expected to remain...

The release of flammable gases inside a traffic tunnel can result in a hazardous atmosphere, potentially leading to explosions. The use of mechanized ventilation and water mist systems for fire protection, could improve the safety of road tunnels in case of accidents or fires by mitigating the explosive area of the released gas. The effects of...

Stedelijke watereutrofiëring is een wereldwijd probleem dat aanzienlijke maatschappelijke, economische en ecologische schade veroorzaakt. Vermindering van de nutriëntenbelasting is vastgesteld als een doelstelling voor het verminderen van eutrofiëring in natuurlijke en kunstmatige waterlichamen. Effectief waterkwaliteitsbeheer in de stedelijke...

This study investigates Holocene floodplain evolution and flooding phases as experienced in the Lower Meuse catchment, primarily based on grain-size distributions of channel-fill and floodplain deposits in sediment cores. The presence of post-depositional Fe[sbnd]Mn concretions and resistant organic particulate materials impedes the direct use...

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...

Energy, water, and food systems have so far mostly been studied independently. In this chapter, we argue that it is important to take an “energy-water-food nexus approach” to analyzing these three resource systems. After briefly introducing the emerging literature on the energy-water-food nexus, we inspect the interrelationship between energy...

In order to protect a flexible OLED on plastic foil against water from the ambient atmosphere a top and bottom thin-film encapsulation (TFE) is necessary. A TFE stack SiN-OCP-SiN with getter in OCP results in excellent shelf lifetime. However, the getter particles result in light scattering that is lost upon water ingress in the stack. As a...

Urban areas in coastal lowlands host a significant part of the world's population. In these areas, cities have often expanded to unfavorable locations that have to be drained or where excess rain water and groundwater need to be pumped away in order to maintain dry feet for its citizens. As a result, groundwater seepage influences surface water...

Multiphase conditions can lead to high vibration in flexible pipe systems due to high dynamic flow induced forces. To better model the dynamic forces, large scale 6” air-water, near-atmospheric experiments have been done with different bend radii and upstream configurations. This paper gives an overview of the obtained results with respect to...

Study region: Mekong Delta, Vietnam (MKD). Study focus: Present-day distribution of fresh-saline groundwater is highly heterogeneous in the MKD. Close to the coastline, fresh groundwater is found in aquifers up to 500 m below ground surface. To gain better insight into the fresh-saline groundwater evolution since the late Pleistocene, we...
