[CEST2019_00696] Market and Trade Network Analysis of the EU Emission Trading System
by Dimos S., Evangelatou E., Fotakis D., Mantis A., Mathioudaki A.

The European Union Emission Trading System (EU ETS) is the world’s largest cap-and-trade system. The observed price instabilities and the oversupply of the allowances are two characteristics that affect the objectives and the efficiency of the policy. In this article, we investigate the impact of storing allowances, i.e. banking, in terms of the price level, transaction volume and importance in the underlying trading network. To that end, we used data from the EU Transaction Log (EUTL) until 2014 in conjunction with a variety of important price determinants.

[CEST2019_00387] Assesment of Green Campuses for Sustainable Cities and Society with UI Green Metric: A Case Study of Düzce University
by Gültekin P.

Sustainability is a very important issue for universities. This situation concerning with size of area that they have, number of students, academicians, administrative staff, their excessive consumption of energy and materials. Related to these conditions, Universities have big impacts on environment and nature either explicit or implicit. Certain leading universities have performed comprehensive projects to develop sustainability of the campuses. To understand and assess the efficient sustainability of campuses and universities, lots of evaluation tools have been improved.

[CEST2019_00386] Assessing the Ecological Footprint of Natural Science Students: A Case Study of Düzce University
by Gültekin P., Gültekin Y.S., Dogan T.G.

People are consuming the nature's products and services because all people act on earth. The concept of ecological footprint is accepted as an important indicator of sustainable life issue and calculating human impact on nature. Education should be started from the relevant part of the society which are the natural science students in order to enable people to realize the negative effects they have on nature and to direct them to reduce their ecological footprints.

[CEST2019_00336] Innovative methods of ground improvement for two problematic UK railway earthwork materials
by Mavroulidou M., Safdar Mu., Gunn Mj., Gray C., Payne I., Garelick J., Purchase D.

The paper focuses on emerging (bio-) chemical techniques used to improve engineering properties of two problematic earthwork materials of the UK rail network to address transport earthwork infrastructure resilience in view of climate change. Studied techniques include novel cementing agents (e.g. alkali-activated cements), and/or soil cementation through calcite precipitation mediated by screened and isolated non-pathogenic indigenous bacteria, enhanced by bioaugmentation and electrokinetic treatment. The proposed treatments were evaluated based on unconfined compressive strength (UCS).

[CEST2019_00348] Strategic Spatial Planning for Green Infrastructure. The case of the metropolitan area of Thessaloniki
by Pozoukidou G., Sagovits V.

Intense and varying environmental challenges have become one of the most pressuring goals that contemporary cities struggle to meet. Climate change, excessive urbanization and fragmentation of space are just some of the issues that contemporary cities are called to respond to. Thus, finding an effective approach to improve the quality of urban areas has proved crucial to cities all around the world. Green Infrastructure (GI) practices emerge as a key measure for cities that seek to increase their resilience to climate change and provide a quality place for people.

[CEST2019_00317] The Environmental Impact of Tourism and their Effect on Cultural Heritage
by Fragkou D., Sinou M.

The natural and cultural heritage, peculiar and living cultures are great tourist attraction. The intensive and inefficient management of tourism and the association with this development can damage the nature, integrity and the dominant characteristics of these. In this way the ecological structure, cultural features and life style of the host community can also be degraded, as is the experience of the visitor in this place. The architecture of tourism in Greece is “pressed” by overexploitation and the need to offer more and more benefits and amenities.

[CEST2019_00297] The need for setting optimal geographical and temporal boundaries for infrastructure project design and EIA, and how science and technology can help
by Venables R.K.

All infrastructure projects generate significant effects on the environment and their surrounding communities, but to varying degrees depending on their nature, scale and context. The environmental impact assessment process, despite its title, attempts to assess the social effects of projects alongside environmental impacts.

[CEST2019_00082] Dynamic heat map as a part of the regional energy transition
by Wern B., Noll F.

Heat maps show the heat and cold demand of residential, commercial and industrial buildings as well as the waste heat from industry. They combine these two aspects in order to plan new heating/cooling networks. By planning the thermal energy supply in a central way, the efficiency of the energy production and the overall exergy rate are also increased. The paper will present the methods of modern web-based heat mapping with a user oriented interface in the example of Saarland region, Germany.
