Abstract Plastics are widely used because of their diverse mechanical and physicochemical properties, however, many plastic products can only achieve their specific characteristics if mixed with additives, like flame retardants, stabilizers, and plasticizers. Some of the formerly used plastic additives, however, are in the meantime evaluated as substances of very high concern (SVHC) or even persistent organic pollutants (POP) and are referred to as “legacy additives”. Therefore, the improper dis...

Abstract The production and consumption practices that follow the “take-make-dispose” flow have negatively impacted the environment over time. This has propelled the society to evaluate and seek sustainable development options, where Circular Economy (CE) emerged as a relevant concept. This embraced the accountability for reverse logistics of the end-of-life products, which is seen as a costly and complex effort to be managed. This article develops a taxonomy for critical success factors (CSFs) ...

Abstract With increased global consumption of Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), a sustainable recycling process is necessary to reduce wastes and retrieve highly-valued elements. But to achieve an optimized sustainable recycling process, a fundamental understanding of the thermokinetic reactions during pyrometallurgical LIB recycling is essential. In this work, the thermodynamics and kinetics of high-temperature reactions for LIBs during pyrometallurgical recycling are studied using a thermo-gravime...

Abstract Participation in residential organic-waste-diversion-programs (OWDP) represents an individual-level behaviour with significant environmental benefits, including lowering greenhouse gas emissions. This study of 2621 Niagara, Canada, residents sought to understand the attitudinal and sociodemographic drivers of participation and non-participation in OWDP. Additionally, we examined the impact of messaging about the benefits of OWDP on likelihood of future participation while varying the fr...

Abstract Recycling of construction and demolition (CD the physical and chemical properties of the Recycled Ceramic Aggregates (RCA) were determined. The optimal RCA content in the mortar was determined based on the mechanical strength of the resulting composite. The polishing resistance of coarse and fine RCA was characterized with the Polished Stone Value (PSV) test and the Wehner/Schulze (W/S) test, respectively. The test results indicate that the polishing resistance of RCA is significantly b...

Abstract Smartphone technology development has led to a phenomenal increase in its use worldwide, triggering the development of efficient and safe lithium batteries to support advanced smartphones. Lithium ion batteries have many advantages such as high energy density, long lifetime, small size, low weight, no memory effect, and a slow loss of energy. Since new lithium batteries have been continually developed along with new smartphones, the batteries have high potentials to incur environmental ...

Abstract Green supplier development (GSD) has emerged as an important green supply chain management activity since the supplier environmental performance is the overall greatest contributor to environmental issues in manufacturing industry. In order to successfully implement GSD, manufacturing firms should seek to identify barriers and remove them in the initial stages of green supplier development programs (GSDPs). These barriers do not only affect the GSDPs but also influence each other. Their...

Abstract The circularity represents the key strategy of the modern economy, where the waste becomes a raw material, ready to be reprocessed for a second life. In this context, the main aim of the present work was the development of a sustainable process for the recovery of Cu and Zn from end-of-life printed circuit boards (PCBs). The exploitation of this hazardous waste produces a double effect: the recovery of metals, suitable for the current metal market, and the avoided disposal of scraps pro...

Abstract The changes in native forest and grassland management regimes following European settlement, particularly fire exclusion, have prompted the growth of fire intolerant woody tree species such as eastern redcedar (Juniperus virginiana). Eastern redcedar is a native species that has encroached into the prairies and forests of the southern Great Plains of the United States. Over the past few decades, the state of Oklahoma has witnessed considerable ecological and economic losses due to the w...

Abstract Used cooking oil (UCO) has received much attention as feedstock for the production of renewable fuels and bio-based materials. This study aims to assess the environmental impact of UCO-based polypropylene (PP) by a cradle-to-factory gate Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA). 16 impact categories were assessed. The results were interpreted with normalization and weighting steps. For several multi-output processes, different allocation procedures were scrutinized. On a normalized and weighted basi...
