This paper explores the stochastic properties of human urine production in order to assess the potential of combining urine separation with waste design. The aim is to provide specific information about the dynamics of urine production at a microscopic level for the design and the control of the urine waste stream. Based on measured data a stochastic model(More)
Our willingness to embrace climate change policies depends on our perception of their benefits and costs. Evaluation of these costs and benefits requires careful economic analysis. Yet the standard tools for such assessment computable general equilibrium (CGE) models are inadequate on several grounds. Their underlying theory suffers from well-known logical(More)
Texas is the nation’s highest energy consumer, as well as its highest emitter of carbon dioxide. The Texas transportation sector consumes 1.95 quadrillion Btu, 20 percent of the state’s energy consumption (111 million Btu per capita, versus the US average of 90 million Btu per capita). Thus, the state’s contribution to global climate stabilization and local(More)
The energy intensiveness of the transportation sector has created significant sustainability problems, as well as air quality concerns. The Texas transportation system is auto-highway dependent. Efforts to address future mobility needs, must manage this dependence in relation to energy sustainabililty and environmental quality issues. Various measures have(More)
