  • GPR goes underground: Pipe Penetrating Radar

    Abstract: Pipe Penetrating Radar (PPR) is the underground in-pipe application of ground penetrating radar (GPR) either robotically or by manned entry to reveal wall thickness, delamination, voids, and other conditions that enable more precise determination of pipeline integrity and verifications for trenchless technology rehabilitation. PPR, when applied to pipe-bursting applications, can ...

  • Integrated sustainability assessment: what is it, why do it and how?

    This paper describes a new conceptualisation of sustainability assessment as an integrative and active process at the science-policy-society interface and its implementation as exemplified in case studies within the Methods and Tools for Integrated Sustainability Assessment (MATISSE) project. Integrated Sustainability Assessment (ISA) is defined within the MATISSE project as a cyclical, ...

  • The role of modelling tools in Integrated Sustainability Assessment (ISA)

    The paper provides a review of existing modelling tools that have been applied to a wide range of sustainability issues and have been used for policy-relevant sustainability assessments. The review covers biophysical models, socio-economic models as well as integrated approaches. It is discussed at which stages of the Integrated Sustainability Assessment (ISA) cycle models can play an important ...

  • Integrated method for assessing and planning uncertain technology investments

    We propose a method for assessment and planning of uncertain technology investments, in the context of corporate venture capital. It addresses three main issues. It is an integrated approach that starts from the technology, and proceeds to exhaustively cover the entire process that precedes valuation; it explicitly supports the identification of synergies between parent corporation and technology ...

  • An integrated approach for urban water quality assessment

    This paper introduces an integrated approach for the assessment of receiving water quality and the relative contribution of the urban drainage system to perceived receiving water quality problems. The approach combines mass balances with relatively simple receiving water impact models. The research project has learned that the urban drainage system is only one of the determining factors with ...

  • A novel integrated assessment methodology of urban water reuse

    Wastewater is no longer considered a waste product and water reuse needs to play a stronger part in securing urban water supply. Although treatment technologies for water reclamation have significantly improved the question that deserves further analysis is, how selection of a particular wastewater treatment technology relates to performance and sustainability? The proposed assessment model ...

  • Receiving water body quality assessment: an integrated mathematical approach applied to an Italian case study

    This study presents a basin-scale approach to the analysis of receiving water body quality considering both point and non-point pollution sources. In particular, this paper describes an extensive data gathering campaign carried out in the Nocella catchment, which is an agricultural and semi-urbanised basin located in Sicily, Italy. Two sewer systems, two wastewater treatment plants and a river ...

  • Integrated risk assessment in Pasig, Laguna de Bay area, Philippines: a case study

    In the Philippines, formal quantitative risk assessment is relatively undeveloped. There has been no consistent and objective approach to assessing risks, and emergency planning by industries is not based on objective assessment of their risks. It was in this context that a study was undertaken under the aegis of the IAEA/UNEP/WHO/UNIDO Inter-Agency project. From the data collected in ...

  • Assessment of hydraulic fish habitat condition using integrated toolkit: a case study of the Geum river basin, Republic of Korea

    Artificial changes of rivers, including construction and operation of dams, inevitably lead to physical and ecological changes throughout waterways and their floodplains. In this study, a conceptual model coupled with integrated numerical modeling is presented for hydraulic fish habitat assessment of the Geum River basin, Republic of Korea. Based on the major events which might have affected the ...

  • Integrated risk assessment and safety management; transportation of dangerous goods

    Regional risk assessment aims at identifying risks at regional levels by taking into consideration a large number of technical systems and their potential negative impact on the population and environment. This paper introduces a virtual case study for the risk assessment of transportation of dangerous goods in Switzerland; it solves it by means of Decision Support Systems and Stakeholders ...

  • Matter-element model of integrated risk assessment for flood control systems

    The matter-element model of integrated risk assessment for flood control systems is established with matter-element analysis theory and correlative function of extension set, on the basis of classification of flood situations and risk indexes of typical flood control works. By this model, quantitative indexes of integrated risk assessment can be derived for flood control systems on a basin or ...

  • Integrated sustainability assessment of water systems: lessons from the Ebro River Basin

    This paper describes the co-development and implementation of visioning and experimenting exercises, agent-based modelling, and gaming tools in Integrated Sustainability Assessments (ISAs) involving stakeholders. These new tools are aimed at supporting reflexive learning and at building alternative policy relevant knowledge and evaluative paradigms for managing sustainability. The specific case ...

  • Citizen participation for integrated assessment: new pathways in complex systems

    Citizen or community participation is a guiding principle for environmental decision-making, but in practice it is often compromised and contradictory. Two themes in participation can be defined. One is in the "product" or outcome of decision-making, and aims for more effective and appropriate evaluations and decisions. The other is participation in the "process", where ...

  • An integration framework of innovation assessment for the knowledge-intensive service industry

    As innovation becomes critical in the trend of the knowledge economy and there is significant growth in the knowledge-intensive service industry (KISI), this study tries to explore the nature of the KISI and the concept of innovation measurement. We suggest the three dimensions of the assessment – capability, behaviour and performance – as the basic conceptual building stones linking the system ...

  • Opportunities and challenges of integrating ecological restoration into assessment and management of contaminated ecosystems

    Ecosystem restoration planning near the beginning of the site assessment and management process (“early integration”) involves consideration of restoration goals from the outset in developing solutions for contaminated ecosystems. There are limitations to integration that stem from institutional barriers, few successful precedents and limited availability of guidance. Challenges occur in ...

  • Integrating Economic Analysis into LCA

     In nearly all private industry applications of LCA, the decision making situations which LCA addresses must also eventually take the economic consequences of alternative products or product designs into account. However, neither the internal nor external economic aspects of the decisions are within the scope of developed LCA methodology, nor are they properly addressed by existing LCA ...
