The benefits of introducing digitization in agricultural sectors
BUTU M., (Corresponding) RODINO S., BUTU A.
IoT-based environmental monitoring
The rapid development of digital technologies has propelled the introduction of digitization in all fields. Among them is agriculture. Thus, farmers can benefit from innovations that make their work easier and increase their efficiency. Digitization aims to increase competitiveness in terms of...Read more
Metagenomic Profile of Bacterial Community and Phage in Domestic Wastewater Treatment Plant
Nandar Htwe N., (Corresponding) Rollon A., Miyanaga K., Tanji Y.
For a better understanding of the microbial community and associated phage abundance in domestic wastewater treatment system, this study did a metagenomics profiling of bacterial community and phage in activated sludge process and chlorination system. The Phylum Proteobacteria is the most abundant...Read more
Interface engineering approaches for efficient and robust perovskite solar cells
(Corresponding) Falaras P.
Renewable energy sources
The field of perovskite photovoltaics has been witnessing a surge of interest over the past few years across the breadth of advanced nanomaterials, nanoscience and nanotechnology. Of particular interest, controlling the nanomorphology of the hybrid perovskite absorber can modify intrinsically...Read more

The Development and Implementation of an Environmental Coastal Observatory focused on semi-enclosed Gulfs
(Corresponding) Zervakis V., (Corresponding) Tragou E., Krasakopoulou E., Kolovoyiannis V., Mamoutos I., Androulidakis I., Mazioti A., Potiris E., Kougioumtzoglou R., (Corresponding) Mosiou K., Kalatzi M., Chaniotaki M., Chatzilaou C., Vagi M., Petalas S.
Environmental management and policies
The recent post-Glacial Mediterranean sea-level rise converted mountain valleys to islandic embayments. These bays exhibit distinct hydrographic and biogeochemical characteristics, seasonally alternating thermohaline functioning and their coastal ecosystems support thriving coastal activities. The...Read more

Improving the homogeneity of a sewage sludge-based phosphorus fertilizer by Monte Carlo simulation of the production chain
Vogt S., (Corresponding) Brueck F., Schnabel K., Weigand H.
Solid waste management
Sewage sludge mono-incineration with subsequent phosphorus (P) recovery from the ash is becoming increasingly important in many European countries. Plant operators are facing the challenge to produce a homogeneous P output which needs to conform to fertilizer standards (including trace elements...Read more
Urban Heat Island mitigation scenarios by Blue-Green Infrastructures modelling
La Cecilia D., Malvolti G., (Corresponding) Despini F., Teggi S., Bigi A., Bach P.
Environmental data analysis and modelling
The integrated planning of cities landscape and blue-green infrastructures (BGI) is an approach poised to play an increasingly positive role in climate change adaptation for the human population. Cities worldwide are rapidly expanding to accommodate the increasing urbanization. Phenomena including...Read more

Mapping the path of an inclusive transition towards circular economy: Local accelerator hubs as enablers of circular business model innovation?
(Corresponding) Ort V., Ruiz H., Katusic V., Demetriou G.
Circular economy and industrial symbiosis
While the goal of the circular agenda is clear, the path to circularity is anything but mapped out. On a regional level, Local Accelerator Hubs (LAHs) can play a key role in leading this transition by connecting important players to collectively solve local challenges that pose obstacles to the...Read more
