    The circular economy paradigm requires process synthesis to be expanded beyond the consideration of production activities aimed at market needs and to integrate valorization processes upcycling waste from different sources ...
  • A MILP model for enhancing wastewater networks by introducing reclaimed wastewater usage 

    Lechtenberg, Fabian; Somoza Tornos, Ana; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are an example of available but underutilized waste-to-resource processes. Economic benefit opportunities can be generated through the design and operation of WWTPs following a circular ...
  • Improving photo-Fenton process by hydrogen peroxide dosage strategies. Dissolved oxygen performance indicator 

    Yu, Xiangwei; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Miralles Cuevas, Sara; Cabrera Reina, Alejandro; Pérez Moya, Montserrat (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Fenton and photo-Fenton are Advanced Oxidation processes driven by the supply of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). However, excessive hydrogen peroxide supply results in unproductive reactions and causes the process performance ...
  • Optimal Design and planning supply chains of multi renewable resource-based energy/material applied in process industries 

    Morakabatchiankar, Shabnam; Mele, Fenando D.; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this work, the effects of multi renewable resource-based energy integration in material supply chains are analysed under stochastic and deterministic conditions. The proposed approach is based on the development of a ...
  • Systematic generation and evaluation of waste-to-resource alternatives 

    Pacheco López, Adrian; Somoza Tornos, Ana; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Circular economy appears to be the only suitable approach for closing the materials loop and so to make sustainable current development levels. In this work, a procedure to systematically generate a list of ...
