A Machine Learning Approach for the prediction of solid fuels consumption in Turkey
Celik N., (Corresponding) Konyalioglu A.
Environmental data analysis and modelling
Solid fuels are very crucial energy sources as most of industries use them for obtaining heat, electricity and light. Furthermore, since solid fuels are scarce sources in Turkey, it is very important to forecast the consumption in order to effectively manage the energy policies and to conduct an...Read more

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Analysis Assisted by Portable Sensing Devices for Precise Assessment of Indoor Environmental Conditions
Bali N., Voultsidis D., (Corresponding) Gialelis Y.
ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
Indoor air quality has become an emergent issue for human health since burdened outdoor environments, stagnant air conditions and indoor human activities (cooking, cleaning, etc.) increase the pollutant concentration. Some of the pollutants that interest the most for indoor environments are PM2.5,...Read more

Development of Scenario-based Decision-Making Framework for Marine Oil Spill Waste Management
Hosseinipooya A., (Corresponding) Li J.
This study developed a scenario-based decision-making framework to help select the appropriate strategy to deal with marine oil spill response waste by considering different impact factors, including the type of spilled oil, the quantity and quality of waste, the capacity of transportation, the...Read more
Source profile of PM10 emission sources in Western Macedonia, Greece, during 2022
(Corresponding) Gkaras S., Triantafyllou E., Dougali A., Diamantopoulos C., Tolis E., Triantafyllou A.
Government energy policy strategies which are intended to encourage the reduction of lignite energy production, has a negative impact on industrial activities in the region of Western Macedonia, leading to important changes of the atmospheric emission profile. Taking into consideration the current...Read more
Techno-economic assessment of a high temperature thermal storage integration into a sludge drying process in combination with PV electricity
(Corresponding) Vlachokostas C., Papadopoulos A., Makris D., Alexopoulos S., Schruefer J., Hoegemann D.
Renewable energy sources
During the ongoing transition towards cleaner energy production to tackle climate change, it is important to identify economically viable solutions. While Renewable Energy Sources (RES) offer clean energy, they cannot consistently meet energy demand. Therefore, energy storage technologies are...Read more

Poly-hydroxyalkanoates production from mixed microbial cultures: effect of dissolved oxygen and pH.
Kora E., (Corresponding) Ntaikou I., Lyberatos G.
The accumulation potential of poly-hydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) produced from an acclimated mixed microbial culture (MMC) under different dissolve oxygen (DO) levels and pH was investigated, using volatile fatty acids (VFAs) as carbon source. Specifically, the PHAs production potential of the MMC was...Read more
Acclimation of microbial consortia on acidogenic effluents for enhanced production of polyhyrtoxyalkanoates.
Rokizas S., Kora E., Kalogirou T., Antonopoulou G., (Corresponding) Ntaikou I., Lyberatos G.
The aim of the present study was to develop efficient MMCs via their acclimation to a mixture of volatile fatty acids, sugars, and lactate i.e. the acidogenic effluents of a hydrogen-generating bioreactor processing food wastes. Acclimation was conducted under sequential carbon (C) and nitrogen (N...Read more
Feature-based molecular networking and in silico structure annotation/classification of LC-HRMS data unfold the chemodiversity of cyanobacteria in environmental samples.
Iliakopoulou S., Zervou S., Triantis T., Hiskia A., (Corresponding) Kaloudis T.
Freshwater cyanobacteria are prominent sources of structurally diverse natural compounds. Bioactive cyanometabolites are particularly relevant to water quality and public health protection. Non-targeted analysis (NTA) by liquid chromatography - high resolution mass spectrometry (LC-HRMS) is applied...Read more
Chromium (VI) and nickel removal by resin supported nanomagnetite: column experiments
(Corresponding) Mystrioti C., Papassiopi N., Xenidis A.
Soil and groundwater contamination and remediation
Magnetite is a mixed-valent iron oxide with magnetic properties, which is considered as an efficient adsorbent for the removal of Cr(VI) from the aquatic environment. However nanomagnetite possesses difficulties for in situ remediation applications due to clogging effects and high separation cost...Read more
Rule-based Quantification and Mapping of Ecosystem Services Across Three Spatial Scales by Example of Germany
Schlutow A., (Corresponding) Schröder W., Nickel S., Jenssen M.
Environmental data analysis and modelling
The state of ecosystems influences their services for humans. Therefore, the European Union aims to assess and map ecosystem conditions and ecosystem services at the level of the Union and the Member States, in order to implement maintenance or protection measures, if necessary. This paper aims at...Read more
