    Article
    Open Access
    We present a coupled macroscopic traffic and emission modelling system tailored to the Barcelona metropolitan area that allows estimating hourly road transport emissions at road link level. We use the developed system to ...
  • Life Cycle Assessment of the mesophilic, thermophilic, and temperature-phased anaerobic digestion of sewage sludge 

    Lanko, Iryna; Flores Rosell, Laura; Garfi, Marianna; Todt, Vladimir; Posada, John; Jenicek, Pavel; Ferrer Martí, Ivet (2020-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this study the environmental impact of the anaerobic digestion (AD) of sewage sludge within an activated sludge wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) was investigated. Three alternative AD systems (mesophilic, thermophilic, ...

    Continuous noise monitoring based on mobile systems could provide a quick feedback to assess the effect of policies implemented by authorities to mitigate noise pollution. The present research verifies that mobile measurements ...
  • Scaling-up the anaerobic digestion of pretreated microalgal biomass within a water resource recovery facility 

    Díez Montero, Rubén; Vassalle de Castro, Lucas; Passos, Fabiana Lopes del Rei; Ortiz Ruiz, Antonio; García Galán, María Jesús; García Serrano, Joan; Ferrer Martí, Ivet (2020-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Microalgae-based wastewater treatment plants are low-cost alternatives for recovering nutrients from contaminated effluents through microalgal biomass, which may be subsequently processed into valuable bioproducts and ...
  • Wind fleet generator fault detection via SCADA alarms and autoencoders 

    Beretta, Mattia; Cárdenas Araujo, Juan José; Koch, Cosmin; Cusidó Roura, Jordi (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2020-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    A hybrid health monitoring system for wind turbine generators is introduced. The novelty of this research consists in approaching a 115-wind turbine fleet by using the fusion of multiple sources of information. Analog SCADA ...
  • Constructed wetlands operated as bioelectrochemical systems for the removal of organic micropollutants
