  • Managing the end-of-life of railway vehicles for resource recovery

    The railways transport has to be further implemented in the medium and long term to reduce traffic on the road and greenhouse gases emissions. The aim of the paper was the analysis of the end-of-life (EOL) of rolling stock and the evaluation of its management taking into account the sustainable use of resources and the reduction of waste. Considering that, at present, the EOL of this sector has ...

  • Waste Generation and Management

    Abstract Reported total waste generation within the EU and the European Free Trade Area increased by nearly 10% between 1990 and 1995, while economic growth was about 6.5% in constant prices. Half the waste comes from the manufacturing industry and construction and demolition activities, while municipal waste, mining waste and waste from other sources each contribute about one sixth of the ...


  • Real-world vehicle emissions

    The Coordinating Research Council (CRC) convened its 18th On-Road Vehicle Emissions Workshop March 31–April 2, 2008, with 104 presentations describing the most recent mobile source-related emissions research. In this paper we summarize the presentations from researchers whose efforts are improving our understanding of the contribution of mobile sources to air quality. Participants in the workshop ...

  • Enhancing your bottom line: waste and recycling collection vehicle routing optimization

    The waste industry has seen more changes than most of us can keep up with, not only within the most recent few years, but largely over the past three decades. Most company owners and solid waste industry management say the same thing, “I remember when we picked up the trash and took it all to the landfill.” A far cry from where the industry is today. Now there are rules, ...

  • Sustainable engineering management: end-of-life vehicles with recovery in mind

    Growth sustainability requires to lower pollution and raw materials consumption. The paper deals with car end-of-life recovery (reuse, recycle) regulation as new business issue, and outlines modelling and simulation paths, to assess problems in reverse logistics for items collection and process data management. The backward flow (from exhausted items, to useful provisions) is fostered to lower ...

  • Peace of mind for waste management drivers

    Smooth running tires assure peace of mind for drivers concerning their vehicles. Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) constantly monitor tire pressures and warn of low tire pressures. Only about 10 percent of tire-induced breakdowns are due to sudden tire damage; the remaining 90 percent start with slow leaks. However, drivers usually notice this gradual air loss too late, and more serious ...

  • In-Vehicle exposures to particulate matter and black carbon

    ABSTRACTIn-vehicle exposures to particulate matter (PM) and black carbon (BC) can be a significant part of personal totalexposure. The purpose of this study was to identify determinants of the in-vehicle pollutant level. This study measured in-vehicle exposure to PM number concentrations using an aerosol spectrometer and BC concentration by an aethalometer. The measurement was repeated 3 ...

  • A brief history of technology-forcing motor vehicle regulations

    Faced with the worst air quality in the United States, California began in the 1960s to pursue a “technology-forcing” approach in establishing motor vehicle tailpipe emission standards. This approach sought to advance vehicle pollution control technology by establishing future tailpipe emission limits even if no technologies existed to meet them at the time regulators set the standards. The U.S. ...

  • What a waste!

    Having worked on putting into place effective waste management systems in the middle of the Sahara desert, once again I am left in despair at poor precedents in the UK.I did the Great North Run this year, and was amazed at the amount of rubbish that was left for the local council to collect. I also attended the RWM waste and recycling show in Birmingham to promote zero waste, and how to achieve ...

  • Waste not, want not

    Consultant Andy Ive considers solutions which not only comply but also enhance the environmental profile of today’s industrial companies. Until recently the prevailing perception in many industries, particularly those operating in emerging market areas has been that waste is an unwelcome inconvenience. The primary infrastructure of most companies was fundamentally not designed to deal with waste ...
