    Industrial symbiosis networks enable efficient resource sharing between companies and, thereby, generate otherwise unachievable profits. This work studies the multi-actor process integration problem that arises when ...
  • Integrated synthesis, modeling, and assessment of waste-to-resource alternatives 

    Pacheco López, Adrian; Somoza Tornos, Ana; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (2022)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    To address the urgent need to transform the current economic paradigm towards a more circular one, this contribution proposes a framework for assisting the selection of the most promising waste-to-resource alternatives. ...
  • Using fuzzy logic to evaluate fire vulnerability of dwellings located at the wildland-urban interface 

    Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Vacca, Pascale; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa (2022)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    WUI fires are posing great challenges to firefighting services, which are overwhelmed by the need to not only suppress the fire, but also protect the community. The need for self-protection is therefore growing, as is the ...
  • Vulnerability analysis to wildland- urban interface fires in metropolitan areas: an integrated approach 

    Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Caballero Valero, David; Rodríguez Giralt, Israel; Arenas Conejo, Miriam; Morán Núñez, Francisca Josefa; Canaleta Garcia, Guillem; Vacca, Pascale; Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (2022)
    Conference lecture

    This study addresses the modelling of the photo-Fenton processes, sensitivity analysis, and parameter fitting, focusing on the supply of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and aiming at the future exploitation in model-based ...
  • Towards automated information retrieval of process data and knowledge from academic databases 

    Lechtenberg, Fabian; Farreres de la Morena, Xavier; Somoza Tornos, Ana; Pacheco López, Adrian; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio; Graells Sobré, Moisès (2021)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Process modeling requires both data (chemical reaction yields, kinetic constants, cost estimates, environmental indicators, etc.) and knowledge (operation models and formulations, alternative processes and technologies, ...
  • A hybrid model coupling Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP) and conventional bio-processes for the removal of recalcitrant contaminants in wastewaters 

    Nasr Esfahani, Kourosh; Pérez Moya, Montserrat; Graells Sobré, Moisès (2021)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The combined use of Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP) and conventional bio-processes has been suggested for the efficient treatment of wastewaters with a significant presence of recalcitrant contaminants. However, no ...
  • Fixed-bed column sorption of ammonium from treated municipal wastewater using clinoptilolite 

    Sheikh, Mahdi; Vecino Bello, Xanel; Reig i Amat, Mònica; Valderrama Angel, César Alberto; Cortina Pallás, José Luís (2020)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    The sorption of ammonium (NH4+) ion was measured in a continuous fixed-bed column via employing a granular natural zeolite (clinoptilolite). The column performances were investigated at influent flow rate of 0.22 mL/min. ...
  • Optimal design and planning multi resource-based energy integration in process industries 

    Morakabatchiankar, Shabnam; Mele, Fenando D.; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (Elsevier, 2019)
    Conference report
