Numerical and experimental validations of the theoretical basis for a nozzle based pulse technique for determining building airtightness (2020)
Journal Article
Cooper, E., Zheng, X., & Wood, C. J. (2020). Numerical and experimental validations of the theoretical basis for a nozzle based pulse technique for determining building airtightness. Building and Environment, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.buildenv.2020.107459

Motivated by intentions of avoiding large net fluid flow and enabling a more practical airtightness test for large buildings, a low-pressure Pulse pressurisation technique was developed for measuring building airtightness at pressures that are consid...

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...

Constructed wetlands for steel slag leachate management: Partitioning of arsenic, chromium, and vanadium in waters, sediments, and plants (2019)
Journal Article
Gomes, H. I., Mayes, W. M., Whitby, P., & Rogerson, M. (2019). Constructed wetlands for steel slag leachate management: Partitioning of arsenic, chromium, and vanadium in waters, sediments, and plants. Journal of Environmental Management, 243, 30-38. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jenvman.2019.04.127

Constructed wetlands can treat highly alkaline leachate resulting from the weathering of steel slag before reuse (e.g. as aggregate) or during disposal in repositories and legacy sites. This study aimed to assess how metal(loid)s soluble at high pH,...
