Improving information recognition and performance of recycling chimneys
An eco-ergonomics-based approach to improve the design of interfaces for recycling chimneys based on Ecological Interface Design principles is described, which is valuable for improving the performance of waste collection processes in terms of minimising contamination and increasing the quantity of recyclables.

Understanding and Managing Vacant Houses in Support of a Material Stock-Type Society—The Case of Kitakyushu, Japan
From a sustainable material management perspective, vacant houses represent material stock and still have potential in the circular economy. This article addresses two aspects of understanding andExpand
Energy Consumption, Carbon Emissions and Global Warming Potential of Wolfberry Production in Jingtai Oasis, Gansu Province, China
Energy use and global warming potential (GWP) were investigated in a wolfberry production system in the Yellow River irrigated Jingtai region of Gansu, finding the highest share was related to electricity consumption for irrigation, followed by N fertilizer use. Expand
Re-use of Building Products in the Netherlands : he development of a metabolism based assessment approach
This research departs from the desire to understand the practice of reuse of building products from a systemic standpoint, representing a network of multiple factors influencing the process of reusing as well as the motivations, conditions and limitations behind them. Expand
Ecological efficiency in China and its influencing factors—a super-efficient SBM metafrontier-Malmquist-Tobit model study
A super efficiency slack-based measure (SBM) model is used that introduces the undesirable output to calculate the ecological efficiency, and traditional and metafrontier-Malmquist index method is used to study regional change trends and technology gap ratios (TGRs). Expand
Highly efficient triazolone/metal ion/polydopamine/MCM-41 sustained release system with pH sensitivity for pesticide delivery
The characterization results confirmed the existence of the coordination bond between the PDA layer and triazolone through the bridge effect from metal ions, which enhanced the interaction between PDA–MCM-41 and trizolone and showed significant pH-sensitivity in the sustained release process.
