A Critical Review Of Research On Reuse Of Mechanically Recycled Frp Production And End-Of-Life Waste For Construction, Ardavan Yazdanbakhsh, Lawrence C. Bank Jun 2014

A Critical Review Of Research On Reuse Of Mechanically Recycled Frp Production And End-Of-Life Waste For Construction, Ardavan Yazdanbakhsh, Lawrence C. Bank

Publications and Research

For the last three decades, fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials have been widely used in major engineering industries. Managing FRP waste is becoming an important issue due to the growth in the production of FRP composite materials. In this article, the issue of FRP waste management is discussed and the commonly used methods for the handling of FRP waste are reviewed. One potentially viable use of FRP waste is in the partial replacement of fillers or aggregates in cementitious materials (particularly portland cement mortar and concrete). A number of important prior investigations performed on the use of FRP waste ...


Economic Growth Assumptions In Climate And Energy Policy, Nir Y. Krakauer Mar 2014

Economic Growth Assumptions In Climate And Energy Policy, Nir Y. Krakauer

Publications and Research

The assumption that the economic growth seen in recent decades will continue has dominated the discussion of future greenhouse gas emissions and the mitigation of and adaptation to climate change. Given that long-term economic growth is uncertain, the impacts of a wide range of growth trajectories should be considered. In particular, slower economic growth would imply that future generations will be relatively less able to invest in emissions controls or adapt to the detrimental impacts of climate change. Taking into consideration the possibility of economic slowdown therefore heightens the urgency of reducing greenhouse gas emissions now by moving to renewable ...
