  • Rubber-modified sand concrete for waste management

    Sand concrete is a new material used in civil engineering to valorise natural resources such as sand. Our study aims to find a formula for sand concrete in order to use it in construction. We suggest a methodology to search for the optimal formula, based on the criteria of strength, workability and compactness. The paper examines the behaviour of a concrete modified using rubber powder. In our ...

  • An ontological approach to knowledge management for sustainable nuclear decommissioning

    Nuclear decommissioning design and operational knowledge may remain relevant over many decades. Designing sustainable operations today requires meaningful simulation of future events, which in turn relies on the accurate representation of all relevant current knowledge. In decommissioning, human agents may be as important for maintaining operational safety as technical systems, so simulations ...

  • Simultaneous removal of parathion and methyl parathion by genetically engineered Escherichia coli in a biofilter treating polluted air

    A biofilter inoculated with a genetically engineered Escherichia coli strain was successfully applied to treat air streams containing a mixture of parathion and methyl parathion (MP). Average removal efficiencies of 95.2% for parathion and 98.6% for MP were obtained during the overall operation period. Compared with conventional biofilters, the biofilter inoculated with the engineered E. coli ...

  • Experimental vs. arbitrary landfill diversion targets

    An experimental method is developed for setting pragmatic short–term landfill diversion targets of municipal waste in emerging economies. Domestic waste composition is shown to be quite uniform throughout developing countries of Africa, Asia and America. Consequently, the method developed in Brazil is readily exportable to other continents with minor numerical adjustments. It consists of ...
