Abstract Demand for clean technologies has increased global lithium (Li) production. However, the potential impacts of lithium extraction, especially on frontline communities, have not been studied holistically. This research assesses the community sustainability in Salar de Atacama, Chile. We developed a coupled natural-social systems framework to analyze the interdependencies of the lithium extraction and its impacts. Using data from the Chilean census, company sustainability reports, remote s...
Abstract Municipal solid waste (MSW) management has shifted to include multiple functions, especially energy recovery and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, other than sanitary treatment of waste. In China, two main MSW treatment options exist: landfill and incineration. The objective of this study was to evaluate the landfill and incineration methods in terms of two important indicators, energy balance and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and to discuss the advantages as they relate to decar...

Abstract In this study, in order to improve the anti-fungal performance of wood material, a facile, efficient and eco-friendly method was proposed for wood modification under the synergistic effect of silver particles and high voltage electrostatic field (HVEF) treatment. Poplar wood, a vulnerable to decay species, was hot-pressed by silver electrode plates and exposed simultaneously to HVEF. The chemical characteristics and anti-fungal performance of treated wood were investigated in details. U...
Abstract A systematic literature review is carried out to understand the social dimensions driving the adoption of water saving behaviors in urban households. Salient aspects of the problem correspond to price elasticity of water demand, citizens’ awareness of water value and water conservation intentions, the management of which is generally tackled through water price and non-price approaches. However, the evidence falls short to explain the social drivers and inhibitors of stable water consum...
Abstract The widespread availability and chemical constitution of agroindustrial residues have stood them out as a promising source of natural chemicals and polymers, such as cellulose. However, to date, green alternative routes developed to convert the agroindustrial residues into value-added products lack environmental performance regarding the impact’s quantification. In this work, promising green pretreatment (hydrothermal treatment followed by dilute sodium hydroxide reaction) and acetylati...
Abstract Food producers thrive towards the satisfaction of today’s consumer demands for natural, safe, and sustainable food products. Thereby, the application of food colorants is a major issue. In this article, we aimed at giving insights into the evaluation of natural and artificial food colorants and revealing weaknesses within the value chain by use of a hot spot analysis. Implying red hues, natural plant-based anthocyanins (E163) and lycopene (E160d), natural animal-derived carmine (E120), ...

Abstract Dry reforming is a promising new technology for biogas utilization. Herein, Ni catalysts using Al2O3, SiO2, MgO, CeO2 and ZnO as supports were prepared and studied to uncover the correlation between physico-chemical properties and activity, also their specific response to carbon formation. The catalysts were characterized systematically via N2-physisorption, XRD, TEM, EDS, H2-TPR, XPS and TGA. The catalytic activity was investigated at 600–850 °C and stability tests were conducted at 75...

Abstract This study evaluates the techno-economic feasibility of an integrated biorefinery for the co-production of furfural, lignin, and ethanol from lignocellulosic biomass (i.e., switchgrass as a model feedstock). The proposed biorefinery is based on a novel one-pot biomass fractionation and furfural production, which is integrated into ethanol production. The one-pot reaction system uses a biphasic solvent comprising aqueous choline chloride (ChCl) and methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK). Aqueous ...

Abstract In this manuscript, the results show that the single-stage liberation by using a cutting mill is sub-optimum. From the analysis, that the size fraction of 850 μm size fraction. The low recovery of LiCoO2 is caused by the particles that are still adhering on to the surface of the aluminium current collector. This lack of liberation prompted the use of attrition scrubbing as a secondary stage of mechanical treatment. 2.5 min Attrition scrubbing improves the selective liberation of cobalt ...

Abstract The Construction Industry is responsible for over 30% of the extraction of natural resources, as well as 25% of solid waste generated in the world. This happens because the construction sector mostly adopts a linear economic model of “take, make, dispose”, using materials to the construction of buildings and disposing them at the end of life, since they are assembled for one time use and don’t retain potential for reuse. Over the last decades, a paradigm shift has been occurring in the ...
