    Green and grey stormwater management infrastructures, such as the filter, swale and infiltration trench (FST), can be used to prevent flooding events. The aim of this paper was to determine the environmental and economic ...
  • Assessing the energetic and environmental impacts of the operation and maintenance of Spanish sewer networks from a life-cycle perspective 

    Petit Boix, Anna; Sanjuan Demás, David; Chenel, Sergio; Marin, Desiree; Gasol, Carlos M.; Farreny, Ramon; Villalba Mendez, Gara; Suárez Ojeda, María Eugenia; Gabarrell Durany, Xavier; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro; Rieradevall Pons, Joan (2015-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    The environmental impacts resulting from sewer networks are best analysed from a life-cycle perspective to integrate the energy requirements into the infrastructure design. The energy requirements for pumping wastewater ...

    Most geosynthetic and metallic reinforced soil walls are designed assuming that the wall foundation is rigid and/or does not influence the magnitude and distribution of reinforcement loads under operational conditions. ...
  • An X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study of the hydration of C2S thin films 

    Rheinheimer, Vanessa; Casanova Hormaechea, Ignasi (2014-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Electron-beam evaporation was used to produce thin films of ß-dicalcium silicate. Chemical and mineralogical compositions were characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and grazing-angle X-ray diffraction ...
  • Comparative LCA of sewage sludge valorisation as both fuel and raw material substitute in clinker production 

    Valderrama Angel, César Alberto; Granados, Ricard; Cortina Pallás, José Luís; Martínez Gasol, Carles; Guillem, Manel; Josa Garcia-Tornel, Alejandro (Elsevier, 2013-07-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A life cycle assessment to evaluate the environmental impact of urban sewage sludge use as alternative fuel or raw material in clinker production was carried out. In order to quantify in detail the overall environmental ...
