Environmental assessment of viticulture waste valorisation through composting as a biofertilisation strategy for cereal and fruit crops
Composting is a solid waste management alternative that avoids the emission of methane associated with its disposal in landfill and reduces or eliminates the need for chemical fertilisers if compost is applied. The main ...
Análisis de ciclo de vida y huella de carbono. Casos prácticos
(Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, 2020)
Towards improving the sustainability of bioplastics: Process modelling and life cycle assessment of two separation routes for 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid
Within the framework of an economy excessively dependent on fossil resources, the concept of sustainable development, aimed at obtaining environmentally friendly consumer goods, has given rise to the development of ...
Unravelling the environmental and economic impacts of innovative technologies for the enhancement of biogas production and sludge management in wastewater systems
The retrofitting of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) should be addressed under sustainability criteria. It is well known that there are two elements that most penalize wastewater treatment: (i) energy requirements and ...
Efficiency assessment of diets in the Spanish regions: A multi-criteria cross-cutting approach
Food systems are one of the main drivers of the global greenhouse gases emissions from anthropogenic sources, which could be aggravated by the projected increase in world population. Hence, the adoption of sustainable diets ...
Environmental analysis of servicing centralised and decentralised wastewater treatment for population living in neighbourhoods
The planning and construction of large-scale wastewater infrastructure, such as sewerage networks and wastewater treatment plants, is undertaken by the public sector or by publicly regulated monopolies. Only on smaller ...
What is the best scale for implementing anaerobic digestion according to environmental and economic indicators?
Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are the most commonly used environmental management systems to ensure that water pollution is properly managed. The costs associated with energy consumption and sludge management are two ...
BECCS based on bioethanol from wood residues: Potential towards a carbon-negative transport and side-effects
Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) is gaining broad interest as an effective strategy to go beyond carbon neutrality. So far, most of the work on BECCS focused on power systems, while its application to the ...
Unraveling the environmental impacts of bioactive compounds and organic amendment from grape marc
In a society that produces large amounts of solid waste, the search for new methods of valorisation has led to the development of techniques that make it possible to obtain new products from waste. In the case of bio-waste, ...
Fenton and Photo-Fenton Nanocatalysts Revisited from the Perspective of Life Cycle Assessment
This study provides an overview of the environmental impacts associated with the production of different magnetic nanoparticles (NPs) based on magnetite (Fe3O4), with a potential use as heterogeneous Fenton or photo-Fenton ...
