Article
Full-text available
Operation risk (OR) has affected sustainable development of urban rail transit (URT) public–private partnership (PPP) projects in China. Balanced distribution of operational risks among stakeholders (the public, government, and private companies) involved in URT PPP projects can maximize overall profit. Quantitative analysis of operational risk all...

Mega infrastructure projects (MIPs) have become increasingly important to the realization of sustainable development in China. Sustainable development is a process of dynamic balance, and coordinating the triple bottom line (the environmental, social, and economic dimensions) will enable more sustainable development of MIPs. However, previous studi...
Article
Full-text available
The concept of circular economy (CE) offers an innovative and systematical approach to address a number of urban sustainability issues, via exploring symbiotic ways to design circular urban systems and optimizing the materials and energy metabolism of cities, so as to mitigate environmental footprints. Urban sustainability is highlighted as a criti...
Article
Full-text available
Mega infrastructure projects provide a basic guarantee for social development, economic construction, and livelihood improvement. Their operation and maintenance (O&M) management are of great significance for the smooth operation and the realization of the value created by the projects. In order to provide an approach for effectively evaluating O&M...

Transport infrastructure is crucial in facilitating the development of cities and shapes the urban landscape, which in turn has implications on resource supply, environmental impact and social network connection in cities. People rely on their cars, bicycles or the public transport such as trains, metros, buses to get to work, to meet friends and t...
Article
Full-text available
Along with unprecedented urbanization in the last few decades, cities have experienced rapid social and economic transformation in China. A major challenge facing urban authorities in the immediate future is how to plan and govern cities such that they can serve as inclusive systems where everyone is enabled and empowered to fully participate in an...
Article
Full-text available
Due to their characteristics and multiple objectives, high-speed rail (HSR) projects carry more complex risks than conventional projects and high correlation and conductivity are among the associated risk factors. Previous risk assessment frameworks for rail infrastructure have ignored the effects of risk interactions that inflate risk levels, name...
Article
Full-text available
Urban-industrial symbiosis (UIS) is an important system innovation via sectors integration, and has been widely recognized as a novel pathway for achieving regional eco-industrial development. Eco-efficiency, as a mature approach and indicator, offers an effective tool to uncover both the status and trends of such a transformation. However, most st...
Conference Paper
Infrastructures system is critical for successful development of smart industrial parks. Research on the development of infrastructure system of the industrial park, to address how the infrastructure construction gradually meet the demand of smart industrial park and sustainability challenges, will create both business value and social value. With...

Project
In this newly funded NSFC-NWO project, we will develop analytical tools to clarify the effects of emerging waste management systems in cities, design an approach for infrastructure management that is more inclusive, and validate our results in cities in the Netherlands and in China.

In order to effectively guide the sustainable transformation and development of Jingmen City, Jingmen Urban-Rural Planning Bureau, delegated by the Jingmen Government of Hubei Province, proposed the research topics ‘Policy suggestions on the sustainable transition of Jingmen City’. The research topics are based on the evaluation of ecological city, smart city, and low-carbon city construction, and propose strategics for Jingmen’s future urban development policies, planning, implementation, and brand promotion according to Jingmen's resource conditions, construction practices, and characteristics.
Project
The Sino-Dutch project aims to contribute to a quantum leap of eco-industrial symbiosis in China, which will address the technological issues, e.g. creating a readily accessible insight in technological options (company and collective level) and generic models to translate these into environmental and economic net benefits. Drawing on general theory, European and Chinese experiences, the project will address the institutionalization issues through the development of actor-based models for the willingness, capacities and key issues for establishing the collective SIP institutions, focusing on incentive structures, trust building, risk management, shared knowledge and the design of locally grafted rules in their broader regulatory contexts. The SIPs project will ground this in Chinese realities not only through interviews and suchlike empirical methods but also through two case studies of collaborative SIP design in which industrial stakeholders, local government and researchers work together to explore the local options, challenges and solutions. The Sino-Dutch SIPs project engages more than twenty researchers in a consortium led by Chongqing University, Tsinghua University, Leiden University and TU Delft. This project receives joint financial support from NWO (Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research) and MOST (Ministry of Science and Technology of China) within the JSTP 2014 program “Smart Energy in Smart Cities” (NWO no. 467-14-003, MOST no. 2015DFG62270).
