Retention potential of contaminants by (nano)magnetite in batch and microfluidic systems
(Corresponding) Papaslioti E., Tabuteau H., Vantelon D., Le Bouteiller P., Greneche J., Fernández Martínez A., Charlet L.
Water and wastewater treatment and reuse
(Nano)magnetite (Fe3O4) has been suggested to be a significant reductant for contaminants due to its great adsorption capacity and ability to retain metals on its high specific surface. Its use has become an emerging technology for the treatment of contaminated land and water with a great potential...Read more
Comparative analysis of WtE technologies based on multiple criteria analysis and life cycle considerations
Mertzanakis C., (Corresponding) VLACHOKOSTAS C.
Waste strategies development
Nowadays, a range of alternative options and technologies for Waste to Energy are currently available and analytically discussed in the effort to promote energy production and rational waste management. In this paper, a generic methodological scheme is proposed for the comparative analysis of WtE (...Read more
Contemporary assessment of International Maritime Organization’s Carbon Intensity Indicator requirement on tanker vessels’ chartering and employability prospects
(Corresponding) Grapsas N.
Transportation and the environment
Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) is one of the measures adopted by International Maritime Organization (IMO) in June 2021 during the 76th session of the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) for the reduction of carbon intensity of international shipping, taking effect from January 1, 2023...Read more
Assessing the implications of IMO 2020 on tanker vessels’ chartering and employability prospects with a focus on the installation of SOx Scrubbers
(Corresponding) Grapsas N., Vlachos G.
Transportation and the environment
As from January 1, 2020 the limits, which were coined as IMO 2020, of sulphur in fuel oil used on board vessels operating outside emission control areas was reduced from 3.50% m/m (mass by mass) to 0.50% m/m. Those limits are set out in Annex VI of the International convention for the Prevention of...Read more
CARRYING CAPACITY ASSESSMENT OF THE SOUTH AEGEAN REGION, GREECE
(Corresponding) Vandarakis D., Malliouri D., Petrakis S., Kapsimalis V., Moraitis V., Hatiris G., Panagiotopoulos I.
Spatial environmental planning
Since the early 1950’s Greece has been a top travel destination providing high-quality tourism services. This was amplified by the diverse landscape, extended sandy beaches, numerous archaeological sites, people’s mentality, safety, and adequate infrastructure. In particular, the south Aegean...Read more

The chemical exposome in maternal blood and placenta and the potential use of sewage sludge to prioritize hazardous substances
Gil-Solsona R., Nika M., Alygizakis N., Bustamante M., Villanueva C., Gutiérrez-Martín D., Restrepo E., Foraster M., Gómez-Roig M., Llurba-Olive E., Sunyer J., Dadvand P., Thomaidis N., (Corresponding) Gago-Ferrero P.
Chemicals are part of our daily lives and we are exposed to numerous chemicals through multiple pathways. Relevant scientific evidence contributing to the regulation of hazardous chemicals require a holistic approach to assess simultaneous exposure to multiple compounds. Currently, the main way to...Read more

Water centrality to enabling water-energy-food systems
(Corresponding) Susnik J., Masia S., Teutschbein C.
Water, energy and/or food nexus
Water is a key enabler of global water-energy-food nexus systems. The role of water in energy generation and its role in food provision, is made explicit. These are aspects that are often overlooked, or ‘embedded’ in assessments, skimming over the critical role that water plays in societal-enabling...Read more

Noise footprint of tourist accommodations: a novel approach towards soundscape quality assessment
(Corresponding) Tsaligopoulos A., Kyvelou S., Klontza E., Matsinos Y., Lekkas D.
ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
Environmental noise is a global problem with multiscale consequences, affecting human well-being, environmental health and business efficiency. Several tourist accommodations aiming towards a more competitive and profitable business, produce the by-product of noise thus resulting in a higher noise...Read more
The chemical exposome in brain cancer: an exploratory study.
Gil-Solsona R., Pons-Escoda A., Díez S., Gutiérrez-Martín D., Vidal-Sarró N., Bruna J., Dadvand P., Majós C., (Corresponding) Gago-Ferrero P.
Diffuse gliomas are a highly heterogeneous and aggressive brain tumours with poor prognosis and survival and few established risk factors. Environmental exposures are suspected in the pathogenesis of these tumours; however, results of existing studies are limited and inconsistent, particularly for...Read more

Development and application of a LC-HRMS method for the identification and quantification of CECs concern in urine
Gutiérrez-Martín D., Sánchez-Resino E., Restrepo E., Golovko O., López-Serna R., Marquès M., Aalizadeh R., Thomaidis N., Gago-Ferrero P., (Corresponding) Gil-Solsona R.
Chemicals are everywhere in our daily lives, and we encounter them through various pathways. Human biomonitoring (HBM) is commonly used to understand our exposure to these chemicals. Traditionally, HBM focused on a limited number of chemicals analyzed with specific instruments. However, recent...Read more
