Spatial analysis of sustainable development goals: A correlation between socioeconomic variables and electricity use
(Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, 2018-12-01) [Resenha]
It is believed that the environment is largely susceptible to changes in human behavior and the constant advances in using new technologies. Different challenges with regard to housing, basic services, food, health, ...
Application of factorial analysis to a Brazilian metropolitan region considering the Millennium Development Goals
(Renewable & Sustainable Energy Reviews, 2016-06-01) [Resenha]
The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were established by the United Nations (UN) in an attempt to mitigate environmental and economic distortions that exist worldwide. To identify opportunities to meet the aspirations ...
Assessment of photovoltaic performance models for system simulation
(Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, 2017-01-01) [Resenha]
An essential stage in assessing the feasibility of a PV project is the energy yield prediction, which estimates the total energy production of a PV system at a specific site. Photovoltaic (PV) performance models are ...
The new Brazilian automotive policy and its impact on the competitiveness of multinational automobile and auto parts manufacturers
(International Journal of Automotive Technology and Management, 2017-01-01) [Resenha]
To enhance the competitiveness of the Brazilian automotive industry, the government approved a new automotive policy in October 2012. It is called the Inovar-Auto program and will be implemented over the course of five ...
Asteroid families interacting with secular resonances
(Planetary and Space Science, 2018-08-01) [Resenha]
Asteroid families are formed as the result of collisions. Large fragments are ejected with speeds of the order of the escape velocity from the parent body. After a family has been formed, the fragments' orbits evolve in ...
Creation of mass dimension one fermionic particles in asymptotically expanding universe
(International Journal of Modern Physics D, 2017-10-01) [Resenha]
In the present work we study the process of particle creation for mass dimension one fermionic fields (sometimes named Elko) as a consequence of expansion of the universe. We study the effect driven by an expanding background ...
Continuous cultivation of Chlorella minutissima 26a in a tube-cylinder internal-loop airlift photobioreactor to support 3G biorefineries
(Renewable Energy, 2019-01-01) [Resenha]
Microalgae Chlorella minutissima 26a was cultivated in a tube-cylinder internal-loop airlift photo-bioreactor under continuous cultivation conditions. The goal was to investigate the influence of different nitrate levels ...
Organizational learning in asia - issues and challenges
(Learning Organization, 2019-01-14) [Resenha]
Evolution of carbon capture and storage by mineral carbonation: Data analysis and relevance of the theme
(Minerals Engineering, 2019-10-01) [Resenha]
Mineral carbonation has enormous potential for carbon capture and storage (CCS). CO2 is a greenhouse gas that can be converted into environmentally stable products through mineral carbonation, which has been pointed out ...
Λ(t) cosmology induced by a slowly varying Elko field
(Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics, 2017-01-27) [Resenha]
In this work the exact Friedmann-Robertson-Walker equations for an Elko spinor field coupled to gravity in an Einstein-Cartan framework are presented. The torsion functions coupling the Elko field spin-connection to gravity ...
