Abstract Urbanization has prompted a dramatic social and economic development during the past decades in China. As a long-term national strategy, urbanization can only be implemented effectively with sufficient and sustainable ecological environment resources. By appreciating that the ecological environment carrying capacity (EECC) is a yardstick for guiding the practice of sustainable urban development, it is therefore pressing to examine the change of EECC adequately, so that the sustainable u...

Abstract By harnessing the benefits from both construction and demolition waste recycling and geopolymer binders, geopolymeric recycled aggregate concrete (GRAC) can contribute to the green and eco-friendly construction material products. In this study, the compressive behavior of GRAC based on fly ash and slag was experimentally investigated under both quasi-static and dynamic loadings. Quasi-static compressive tests were performed by using a high-force servo-hydraulic test system, while dynami...

Abstract Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are a major source of energy consumption in buildings, directly and indirectly contributing to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In the urban environment, and depending on local climatic conditions, air conditioning units attribute to these high energy demands. This study analyzes the use of residential air conditioning units and their associated global warming potential (GWP) between 2005 and 2030 for the city of Shenzhen, a fast-g...

Abstract New analytical wake models are derived from the soft computing technique, called Genetic Programming (GP) to predict wake velocities and turbulence intensity. The design of the wind farm's appropriate layout is essential for minimizing cost and maximizing the wind farm power generation. This needs a precise wake velocity model to simulate the wake effect of the wind farm within a limited time duration. Furthermore, prediction of turbulence in the wake due to ambient flow and rotor-gener...

Thermal insulation is a significant factor in building construction. As a result, Green Star in Australia requires building envelopes to be insulated properly. Further, green buildings require at l...

Exiting green building assessment standards sometimes cannot work well for large-scale public buildings due to insufficient attention to the operation and maintenance stage. This paper combines the theory of life cycle assessment (LCA) and building information modeling (BIM) technology, thereby proposing a green building assessment method by calculating the greenhouse gas emissions (GGE) of buildings from cradle to grave. Life cycle GGE (LCGGE) can be divided into three parts, including the mate...

Abstract To promote the sorting and recycling rate of construction and demolition waste (CDW), economically incentive policy has been widely adopted by developed economies. Referring to the successful landfill charge scheme in Hong Kong, a renewal CDW landfill charge scheme was assumed to be implemented in Shenzhen. Instead of thumb rules, this study employed contingent valuation method (CVM) to evaluate the local stakeholders’ willingness to pay (WTP) for disposal of CDW. This study aims to set...

Abstract Carbon capture and storage is becoming increasingly feasible. This study provides a novel quantitative analysis of the global CO2 mitigation potential through accelerated carbon sequestration in concrete debris separated from construction and demolition waste. We consider the economic and environmental tradeoff. Based on data collection from 14 large regions and countries, we created a method to estimate and project the generation of concrete debris, recycling and carbonation rates, and...
