Environmental Impact Assessment of Municipal Solid Waste Management Incorporating Mechanical Treatment of Waste and Incineration in Hangzhou, China
Municipal solid waste (MSW) management is becoming increasingly popular around the world as a means of accommodating the increasing amounts of waste that the growing global population generates. China currently produces ...
How environmentally sustainable are fibre reinforced alkali-activated concretes?
Alkali-activated concretes have been receiving increasingly attention as they are identified to be key components towards achieving sustainable construction in future. A detailed comparative environmental assessment study ...
Construction and demolition waste as a raw material for wood polymer composites – Assessment of environmental impacts
The European Commission's ambitious construction and demolition waste (CDW) material recovery target has placed pressure on Finland to increase its CDW material recovery rate. It has been identified that using CDW fractions, ...
Environmental impacts of manure management based on life cycle assessment approach
Horse manure is often a cost for horse owners, and in most cases, it is underutilized when its status as biodegradable waste means that it could potentially be used in renewable energy production and serve as a source of ...
Recycling mica and carbonate-rich mine tailings in alkali-activated composites: A synergy with metakaolin
The main objective of this paper was to investigate the alkali activation of mine tailings (MT) after mechanochemical activation and the effect of metakaolin (MK) addition. Finnish mica-rich tailings from a phosphate mine ...
Environmental and economic perspective of waste-derived activators on alkali-activated mortars
Alkali-activated binders have been considered a low carbon alternative to cement and are produced by reacting aluminosilicate precursor with an alkali-activator. However, alkali-activators have been observed to be a major ...
