Book
Kilby, S. (2020). Peasant Perspectives on the Medieval Landscape: A study of three communities. University of Hertfordshire Press

This compelling new study forms part of a new wave of scholarship on the medieval rural environment in which the focus moves beyond purely socio-economic concerns to incorporate the lived experience of peasants. For too long, the principal intellectu... Read More about Peasant Perspectives on the Medieval Landscape: A study of three communities.

Bioleaching for resource recovery from low-grade wastes like fly and bottom ashes from municipal incinerators: A SWOT analysis (2020)
Journal Article
Gomes, H. I., Funari, V., & Ferrari, R. (2020). Bioleaching for resource recovery from low-grade wastes like fly and bottom ashes from municipal incinerators: A SWOT analysis. Science of the Total Environment, 715, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2020.136945

Bioleaching (or microbial leaching) is a biohydrometallurgical technology that can be applied for metal recovery from anthropogenic waste streams. In particular, fly ashes and bottom ashes of municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) can be used as a...

CFD multiphase modelling of the acetone condensation and evaporation process in a horizontal circular tube (2019)
Journal Article
Mohammed, H. I., Giddings, D., Walker, G. S., & Power, H. (2019). CFD multiphase modelling of the acetone condensation and evaporation process in a horizontal circular tube. International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, 1159-1170. https://doi.org/10.1016...asstransfer.2019.02.062

With increasing demands on energy efficiency, the use of low grade waste heat using vapour absorption refrigeration systems (VARS) are receiving renewed interest. One idea is to use the combination of acetone and zinc bromide as the salt solution, wh...
