  • Ultrasteel Range Extension

    Despite the constantly changing landscape of the hot water and heating industry and the huge growth in combi boilers in the last 15 years, now accounting for over 75% of the market, the hot water cylinder remains a key feature of many water heating systems. Unvented cylinders are ideal for homes with multiple bathrooms ...

  • Using FTIR spectroscopy to measure hydrocarbon pollution in water

    According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF’s 2015 Progress on Sanitation and Drinking Water report almost 700 million people around the world don’t have access to clean drinking water [1]. Poor water quality is beginning to return to the developed world too. The strain of population growth, intensified agricultural practices and continued industrial expansion have are ...

  • Environmental modelling for blue collars

    Model complexity and the ‘breakpoint of diminishing returns’; ‘physical’ vs. ‘conceptual’ modelling; the relevance and limits of the heuristic solutions; screening vs. analytical modelling; perceptions of uncertainties, calibration and sensitivity analysis; and the ‘ethics in modelling’ – are only a few issues outstanding in the volatile philosophy of the environmental modelling. Glossing on ...

  • Modelling trade and environmental linkages in China

    Interactions between trade and the environment have been studied extensively as a reaction to the pressure that the accelerated pace of globalisation has placed on environment and trade. Distinguishing itself from previous work, this study focuses on a modelling analysis of the interactions between trade and the environment in China. A non-linear simultaneous equation trade and environment model ...

  • On the formulation of environmental fugacity models and their numerical solutions

    Multimedia models based on chemical fugacity, solved numerically, play an important role in investigating and quantifying the environmental fate of chemicals such as persistent organic pollutants (POPs). These models have been utilised extensively in the study of the local and global distribution of chemicals in the environment. This paper describes potential sources of error that may arise ...

  • Modelling farmers’ participation in agri-environmental schemes in Greece

    Agri-Environmental Schemes (AES) are the main policy instrument currently available in the European Union to encourage environmental improvements in agriculture, but their adoption in Greece and generally in Southern Europe is relatively low. Policy makers have still limited experience on how farmers approach environmental schemes. The aim of this paper is to examine the factors that determine ...

  • Regulatory models for environmental impact assessments in Hungary

    This paper describes the methodology and input requirements of environmental impact assessments regulated in Hungary by national standards for more than 10 years. The main characteristics are (a) various models simulate the impact of point, multi-source, line and area sources on local, urban and regional scales, (b) design transmission matrices are readily available for the greater part of the ...

  • Endogenous technology and environmental quality in economic models

    The debate on the relationship between the economy and the environment focuses on the question whether there is a trade-off between economic growth and environmental quality. In order to enable a quantification of this essentially empirical question, it is necessary to integrate the environment into economic models. This article considers the integration of the environment in models of economic ...

  • Understanding QSPR uncertainty in environmental fate modeling

    In cases where experimental data on chemical‐specific input parameters are lacking, chemical regulations allow the use of alternatives to testing, such as in silico predictions based on quantitative structure‐property relationships (QSPRs). Such predictions are often given as point estimates; however, little is known about to what extent uncertainties associated with QSPR predictions contribute ...

  • An Interactive Environmental Economy Model for Energy Cycle in Iran

    ABSTRACT The growing world economy calls for saving natural resources with sustainable development framework. This paper intends to look at the environment-energy interface (impacts on the environment stemming form the energy sector) and to propose measures for reducing this impact without trying to impede economic development. In addition, this paper estimates the amounts of energy subsidies ...

  • Environmental Noise

    Introduction The ability to hear sounds is a sensory function vital for human survival and communication. However, not all sounds are wanted. 'Unwanted sounds', for which the term 'noise' is normally used, often have their origin in human activities (mainly transport, industry and households). This article addresses environmental noise ­ also referred to in the scientific literature as ...

  • Models of energy saving systems: the battlefield of environmental planning

    Traditionally, energy planning has been interpreted as planning for an appropriate energy supply system, based on a crude prognosis for the energy demand. Over the past couple of decades, however, the immense possibilities of regulating energy demand - and the benefits of doing it - have become increasingly recognised and also partly included in the planning. This paper first describes some ...

  • Improved environmental multimedia modeling and its sensitivity analysis

    Modeling of multimedia environmental issues is extremely complex due to the intricacy of the systems with the consideration of many factors. In this study, an improved environmental multimedia modeling is developed and a number of testing problems related to it are examined and compared with each other with standard numerical and analytical methodologies. The results indicate the flux output of ...

  • Atmospheric environmental impact assessment modelling in France

    The most widely accepted model of atmospheric dispersion for impact assessment in France is the Gaussian model of Doury. The Centre d'Etudes Atomiques (CEA) and Electricite de France (EDF) have developed their own software systems, which include several compatible or nested meteorological, trajectory, and dispersion codes. These systems are fitted to the various atmospheric scales from regional ...

  • Combining exposure and effect modelling into an integrated probabilistic environmental risk assessment for nanoparticles

    There is a growing need for good environmental risk assessment of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs). Environmental risk assessment of ENPs has been hampered by lack of data and knowledge about ENPs, their environmental fate and their toxicity. This leads to uncertainty in the risk assessment. To effectively deal with uncertainty in the risk assessment, probabilistic methods are advantageous. In ...

  • Study on environmental impact model of grid-connected wind power generation

    As a clean and renewable energy source, wind power is independent from the traditional external energy change, which makes it one of the most promising ways of clean energy generation. It is well known that wind power has obvious energy saving efficiency. But for long-term consideration, wind power generation still has certain impacts on human life. Therefore, standing in the point of the ...

  • The Commission for Environmental Cooperation as a model for promoting sustainable development in the Americas

    The North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) has been touted as a regional model for strengthening environmental cooperation and sustainable development related to free trade regimes. This study reviews CEC's development since 1994 in the context of its ambitious North American Free Trade Agreement related mandate. Drawing on its own documents, government records and ...

  • Development of equilibrium thermodynamic models for studying technical and environmental problems in energy

    Mathematical models based on the concepts of classical equilibrium thermodynamics are discussed. The models are intended for comprehensive thermodynamic analysis of various industrial and natural processes. Unlike traditional models, these allow one to view an attainable region of partial equlibria with regard to constraints on kinetics, energy and mass exchange and to determine the thermodynamic ...
