Article
This work focuses on the assessment, in terms of effectiveness, feasibility and sustainability, of three different procedures for the synthesis of vanadium-based mixed-acid electrolytes to be used in vanadium redox-flow batteries (VRFBs). Procedures considered consisted in: a) the mere mixing of suitable vanadium precursors (Electrolyte A); b) the...

ABSTACT The lifestyle of the industrialized modern civilization, every day requires the transformation of a huge amount of material. Natural resources are transformed in industrial goods and services, but at the end of the cycle returns to the environment after use in an altered form, as waste and emissions. The society degradation and the physical...

The development of an efficient, safe, and sustainable energy system is a urgent challenge, crucial for humankind, as Georgescu Roegen emphasized already in the 70s (e.g. Georgescu 1976). R&D and diffusion of renewable energies, as for any new technology, are interlinked in a positive feedback loop that requires diffusion to be high enough in order...

The data-driven approach to sustainable urban development is becoming increasingly popular among the cities across the world. This is due to cities’ attention in supporting smart and sustainable urbanism practices. In an era of digitalization of urban services and processes, which is upon us, platform urbanism is becoming a fundamental tool to supp...

In recent years the importance of natural capital in the daily life of all living species on our planet is gaining increasing importance. The main implementation approach suggested to obtain environmental accounting, for a policy of sustainable production and consumption is: Life Cycle Thinking (LCT) with its operational tool: Life Cycle Assessment...

Corn husks are an important byproduct of the corn processing industry. Although they are a rich source of bioactive compounds, especially flavonoids, corn husks are usually disposed of or used as animal feed. In this paper, we investigate their recovery by an enzyme-assisted extraction process consisting of a pretreatment of the plant material with...
Article
This paper follows the view that for the implementation of a successful growth policy, differentials among local areas require both a deepened awareness of the state of place and a multidimensional measure of inequalities—by considering both intangible and tangible features of the development. To achieve an effective growth policymaking, an innovat...

Electrical energy production from renewable sources has dramatically grown in the recent years in the developed countries, putting the hard problem to be solved of supply discontinuity. How to reach high efficiency and reliability of electrical energy storage system is thus now one of the most challenging goals to be reached: among all, one of the...

L’obiettivo della rassegna sugli strumenti di policy e governance sull’economia circolare1 è quello di fornire uno strumento informativo per gli operatori nazionali, che sia di facile lettura e consultazione. La rassegna inoltre può servire a facilitare il confronto, nell’ambito della piattaforma ECESP, della situazione italiana con quanto avviene...
Article
The manufacturing trend nowadays seems to be in contrast with the ecosystem needs, as it is based on the exploitation of limited natural resources. A new paradigm is now driving manufacturing in the direction of sustainability: the green and circular thinking. This latter can now guide SMEs in optimizing its processes and products to be more eco-fr...
Conference Paper

In Europe, installed photovoltaic panels are about 70% compared to the rest of the world. To assemble a photovoltaic panel, several materials such as copper, gallium, indium, silicon, cadmium, aluminum, glass and end of life are needed, disposed of, becoming potentially toxic and environmentally hazardous. The effective and sustainable demanufactur...

This article outlines the role that technology has to play in order to enable human beings to move towards a degrowth society. Against the background of the problems we face today, the authors E.E. Schumacher, N.Georgescu-Roegen and others have been re-examined. This work also explains the concepts of entropy and emergy and the “fourth” principle o...

Biological treatment (aerobic and anaerobic) of industrial landfill leachate is limited by the presence of toxic contaminants (e.g., heavy metals) and recalcitrant (biopersistent) organics (e.g., polyphenols, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, etc.,), hindering viable conditions for biomass proliferation in biological reactors, with difficulties in meetin...
