  • Carbon assessment model for supply chain network

    Companies are facing with concerns over the environmental impact of their activities. Companies now recognize the importance of greening their supply chains by minimizing carbon emissions to meet the regulation laid down by various agencies. “Cap” regulation for Green House Gasses reduction is adding complexity to the situation. This paper proposes a mixed integer linear programming model to evaluate a network supply chain operations considering economic and environmental factors. Carbon cap and credit are considered in the model. Multi-supplier, multi-plant, multi-product, and multi-customer zone problem environment is considered here. The model does a trade-off between logistic cost and GHG emission cost to determine the optimal flow of material through the supply chain. The model is demonstrated with a single product, multi-plant, multi-supplier and multi-demand zones example. This example shows that carbon emission is adding a considerable cost to total cost of the supply chain operations.

  • Vertical Structure of P-Band Temporal Decorrelation at the Paracou Forest: Results From TropiScat

    In this letter, we present the results from the ground-based European Space Agency campaign TropiScat, which is aimed at evaluating the temporal coherence at P-band in a tropical forest in all polarizations and at different heights within the vegetation layers. The TropiScat equipment has been operated since October 2011 at the Paracou field station, French Guiana, to continuously produce height-range images of the forest with a temporal sampling of 15 min. The forest temporal behavior can be then captured by analyzing the interferometric coherence between the images gathered at different times, considering time scales on the order of hours, days, and months. The results indicate that the vegetation is likely to undergo a significant motion during day hours due to wind and temperature changes, whereas it appears to be definitively more stable during night hours. This result appears to provide a very useful input to the Biomass Monitoring Mission for Carbon Assessment (BIOMASS), as it suggests that the performance over a tropical forest could be optimized by gathering acquisitions in early morning or night hours. The long- term temporal decorrelation has been then evaluated by considering dawn-dawn acquisitions to minimize the impact of wind gusts and by excluding rainy days in order to not confuse forest and system decorrelation. As a result, the temporal coherence at the ground level was found to stay high at about 0.8 at 27 days, whereas the temporal coherence at the canopy height was found to be about 0.8 at 4 days and about 0.65 at 27 days, indicating coherence sensitivity to height.

  • Study on the construction of the assessing index system about low carbon in logistics park

    Low carbon of logistics park is the direction of logistics development and it is a new topic to study it. Basing on the reviews of low carbon about logistics and the 3R principles in circular economy, this paper gives the first-grade index system on low carbon of logistics park which include original control, process control and terminal control. Then, according to the construction practices of low carbon parks and the 3E theory of government performance measurement system, this paper sets up a system of assessing index system on low carbon of logistics park. After that, the standard of low carbon in logistics park success degrees is determined by the theory of customer satisfaction and the assessing index weight is obtained through AHP. Finally, the result is measured by low carbon assessment of a logistics park.

  • Landscape Ecological Evaluation in Mining Area by PCA & Remote Sensing Integrated

    Based on the characteristics of mining landscape ecology, a mining landscape ecology evaluation system which integrates with remote sensing and PCA is established in this paper. This system provide the function of screening the dominate factor for evaluating mining landscape ecology, and the ecology quality of each sub-area can be evaluated and ranked. Empirical study result shows that the evaluation results are in accord with related landscape ecology theories and site situation. Therefore, this system can be used as a method and a tool for mining rapid ecology evaluation, which can provided a convenience way for Carbon assessment change that induced by mineral resources exploitation.

  • Plenary session

    The forest-land use carbon source is still the major area of uncertainty in determining the global carbon budget. Methods to map forest and non-forest areas with precision using optical remote sensing in the tropical world is extremely difficult due to cloud cover. Time series satellite derived radar data provide the opportunity to map forest change and forest degradation in a consistent and quantifiable manner for input into forest carbon assessment models. Recent work with GEOSAR an airborne radar dataset has resulted in biomass estimations being retrieved directly from multi-band X and P band interferometric (height) and polarimetric (class) information. While the methods still need verification using ground based estimates of biomass, the potential exists to map biomass and greatly assist in the estimation of carbon sequestration and carbon emissions in tropical regions.

  • Assessment of Moringa-functionalized carbon based biofilter for disinfection through column experiments

    The lack of infrastructure for water treatment and distribution remains a major problem in many low-income regions across the globe. Many available water treatment technologies may not be successfully implemented due to economic constraints and low social acceptability. In this study, we test the extent to which Moringa oleifera (MO)-functionalized carbon biofilter columns can effectively remove bacterial contamination in water. MO proteins were adsorbed onto two carbon adsorbents, granular activated carbon (GAC) and rice husk ash (RHA), and were then used as packing materials for a biofilter column. Synthetic contaminated water (non-pathogenic E. coli in water) was fed at the top of the column at fixed flow rates, and coliform removal in the column was evaluated by monitoring the coliform breakthrough in the filtered water. A semi-factorial experimental design was adopted to evaluate the influence of column bed height, type of adsorbent, and contact time on the E. coli removal efficiencies. As a control, parallel experiments using bare carbon adsorbents were also performed. The effectiveness of MO-functionalized adsorbents was evaluated through ANOVA comparison of the breakthrough data from the experimental and control columns. Results show that the MO- functionalized adsorbents effectively remove E. coli from contaminated water. Generally, E. coli removal rates were higher in MO-functionalized RHA than in MO-functionalized GAC. These findings suggest the potential use of MO-based biofilters in water disinfection. Due to the low cost and availability of MO in many low-income regions, MO-functionalized adsorbents can be used as an inexpensive water treatment alternative in these areas.

  • A proposed model of construction cost and carbon emission best practices in the Malaysian construction industry

    The Malaysian construction industry contributes as an empowerment to the Malaysian economic sector. Even though, the building and construction industry are the key sector for sustainable development, but still they are among the biggest threat to the environment in a form of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions. Moreover, this industry consumes a huge amount of natural resources and emits million tonnes of carbon emission per year. In fact, the Malaysian construction industry is categorized as the 30<sup>th</sup> world ranking in carbon emission. However, the Malaysian Construction industry introduced the Malaysian CIB Report, Green Building Index (GBI) and lately the Green Performance Assessment System in Construction (Green PASS) to help the construction's stakeholders in evaluating the impact of their buildings on the environment. Several studies around the world identified the main sources of GHGs and introduced various assessment methods to reduce the amount of carbon emissions of construction projects but it is lack of implementation in the Malaysian construction context. This paper presents a critical literature review for tools and methods used to assess and reduce GHGs emissions of construction projects and it proposes a new model to assess sustainability in the Malaysian construction industry.

  • Assessing Organic Carbon of Grassland Soil in the Northern Tianshan Mountains of Xinjiang, China Using the Wavelet Decomposition of Hyperspectral Data

    Soil organic carbon (SOC) represents a significant fraction of the total amount of carbon involved in the global carbon cycle. Hyperspectral remote sensing has a valuable role in the monitoring of the dynamics of SOC. This study focused upon improving the accuracy of SOC quantification by applying wavelet analysis to reflectance spectra. Spectral measurements for all soil samples (three sub-regions in the northern Tianshan Mountains, China) were performed in a controlled laboratory environment. The results demonstrated that by decomposing soil spectra, the resultant wavelet coefficients can be used to generate higher R2with SOC contents (R2>;0.95) compared to reflectance spectra (R2<;0.63) and derivative reflectance (R2≤0.8). In addition, the selection of optimum scales and wavelengths play a key role in analyzing SOC using continuous wavelet transform. In this study, the optimum correlation between wavelet coefficients and SOC contents were appeared in scale 50-100 at around 2300 nm, and derivative reflectance may be more suitable as input to wavelet analysis than reflectance spectra. These results provided an insight for studying the global carbon cycle by predicting the changes of C in terrestrial ecosystems using hyperspectral remote sensing data.
