Bibliometrics of Scientific Articles on Solid Waste Management in Shopping Malls (1999–2020)

Received: 09 May 2022;  Published: 20 September 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2203034

Abstract

The presence of shopping malls causes a social, economic, and environmental impact. The bibliometric analysis is a valuable method used to dentify published research papers, and understand historic information published in scientific journals. This method can be used to carry out qualitative and qua [...]

The Role of Land Use Planning in Urban Transport to Mitigate Climate Change: A Literature Review

Received: 13 May 2022;  Published: 26 August 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2203033

Abstract

With the growing urbanisation phenomenon, ambitious policy interventions are needed to limit transport-related greenhouse gas emissions in urban areas. Cities are a predominant source of pollution, with urban transport contributing significantly to emissions. To address climate change, decision-make [...]

Health Risks from Supposedly Remediated US Hazardous-Waste Sites: An Early-Warning Signal

Received: 02 June 2022;  Published: 24 August 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2203032

Abstract

Scientific data are almost nonexistent regarding the health-protectiveness of most hazardous-waste-site remediation. Given this data-gap, recently the World Health Organization (WHO) urged scientists to develop methods of “cost-efficient health surveillance” of toxics’ cleanups, includin [...]

Modeling CO2 and N2 Permeation through Mixed Matrix Membranes Containing Oxygenated Carbon Nanotubes Dispersed in Polysulfone

Received: 09 May 2022;  Published: 16 August 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2203030

Abstract

Mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) consist of a polymeric phase and a dispersed solid filler such as zeolites or carbon nanotubes. We prepared symmetric and asymmetric polysulfone-based MMMs containing functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNT-O) for CO2/N2

Visceral Leishmaniasis and Disposal of Solid Waste in Minas Gerais, Brazil

Received: 05 May 2022;  Published: 11 July 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2203028

Abstract

Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is a vector-borne disease that is caused by the protozoan Leishmania infantum and transmitted to humans and other mammals through the bites of infected female sandflies. VL has been prevalent in Minas Gerais, Brazil, since the 1940s. As the vector com [...]

Investigation of Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion of Concrete in Sanitary Sewer Pipes and Manholes: Field Surveys and Laboratory Assessment

Received: 20 April 2022;  Published: 30 June 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2202027

Abstract

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) of concrete in sanitary sewer pipe and manholes is the result of dilute sulfuric acid (H2SO4) dissolving the cement matrix. The acid is produced by a complex series of chemical and biochemical reactions. The o [...]

Meeting the Net Zero Emissions Challenge – Alphabet’s Carbon Management Actions and Opportunities

Received: 10 January 2022;  Published: 16 June 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2202026

Abstract

The first step in managing an entity’s carbon emissions involves measurement as ‘what gets measured gets managed’ and measurement lies at the heart of carbon management. The study of carbon management is important to all stakeholders as it enables calculation of emissions that can help d [...]
