Material flow analysis is a tool that is increasingly used as a foundation for resource management and environmental protection. This tool is primarily applied in a static manner to individual years, ignoring the impact of time on the material budgets. In this study, a detailed multiyear model of the Austrian phosphorus budget covering the period 1990-2011… (More)
Extended statistical entropy analysis (eSEA) is used to assess the nitrogen (N) removal performance of the wastewater treatment (WWT) simulation software, the Benchmarking Simulation Model No. 2 (BSM No. 2). Six simulations with three different types of wastewater are carried out, which vary in the dissolved oxygen concentration (O 2,diss.) during the… (More)

An interdisciplinary education is one of the cornerstones of the Doctoral Programme on Water Resource Systems running at Vienna University of Technology. This is being achieved through a structured education programme comprising of compulsory and optional courses provided in hydrology, geographical information, structural mechanics, microbiology, water… (More)
An interdisciplinary approach is often described as a valuable strategy to assist in overcoming the existing and emerging challenges to water resource management. The development of educational approaches to instil a culture of interdisciplinarity in the future generation of water resource professionals will help to meet this strategic need. The Vienna… (More)
Different directives of the European Union require operators of waste-to-energy (WTE) plants to report the amount of electricity that is produced from biomass in the waste feed, as well as the amount of fossil CO2 emissions generated by the combustion of fossil waste materials. This paper describes the application of the Balance Method for determining the… (More)
A procedure for environmental and economic evaluation of construction materials is presented. The selection of appropriate construction materials depends on their technical suitability in particular engineered infrastructures, but also on environmental and economic considerations. The latter can be evaluated in a freely available software, combining… (More)
