LCA: Convergences with Eco-Innovation and Ecodesign

Authors Motta, Wladmir; Prado, Patricia Abstract The current ecological crisis demands change in various areas of economic activity and production process. Different disciplines have highlighted the importance of including environmental aspects in the design stage as part of this change, with convergence in some of the debates. Concepts such as eco-design and life cycle assessment [...]

Circular Business Model based on biofuels production from organic wastes

Authors Muradin, Magdalena; Harazin, Paulina; Kulczycka, Joanna; Verhe, Roland; Clerq, Gilles Abstract The management of refused derived fuels (RDF) in the light of development of circular economy seems to be very important issue. Currently the RDF fraction is mainly landfilled or incinerated. The solution changing this situation and replaying for the waste management hierarchy can [...]

Ocean renewable energies and their potential impacts on marine biodiversity

Authors Ruiz Méndez, Dora Yesenia; Güereca Hernández, Leonor Patricia Abstract Ocean renewable energies (ORE) hold a great potential, although still at the research and development stage and not yet commercially available. The slow pace in the growth of ORE is largely based on significant uncertainty surrounding the potential effects of ocean technologies in the marine [...]

Material characterization allowing the realization of multi-scale circular economy studies: from research to practice

Authors TIRADO FABIAN, Deanira Rafaela Abstract Recent policies and researches confirm that the circular economy (CE) is indispensable to achieving the ecological transition and sustainable development because it offers strategies to face challenges such as reducing waste production and the scarcity of primary resources. As the construction sector is one of the largest consumers of [...]

Environmental Impacts of Novel Routes for Sc Production from Bauxite Residues and Tio2 Production Wastes

Authors Hengevoss, Dirk; Lenz, Markus; Misev, Victor; Feigl, Vitoria Abstract Scandium (Sc) is high-valued element and a key component in producing high strength aluminum alloys but Sc supply is limited. Sc-producing countries are China (66%), Russia (26%) and Ukraine (7%). The use of Sc containing waste streams such as bauxite residue (BR) from alumina production [...]
