    Tools, guidelines and standards for assessment of Life Cycle Cost (LCC) of built environment e.g. buildings, infrastructure assets etc. have gained impact over the past years. Owner and operator application of tools, ...
  • Comparison of the mesophilic and thermophilic anaerobic sludge digestion from an energy perspective 

    Ferrer Martí, Ivet; Vázquez, Felícitas; Font Segura, Xavier (Destech, 2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Anaerobic digestion promotes simultaneous sludge stabilisation and bioenergy generation. Increasing the net energy production would contribute in reducing the energy demand of sewage treatment plants. Thermophilic digestion ...
