Abstract

La free party, projet de rave gratuite, apparaît historiquement comme une conséquence de la difficulté d’organiser une fête basée sur la musique techno. Tandis que la majeure partie du mouvement techno est animée par un désir de s’insérer dans la société, la free party témoigne au contraire d’une résistance à la socialisation amorcée par les raves payantes. Essaimant dans toute l'Europe, la free party techno donne à vivre une fête fonctionnant sur des principes nettement distincts de ceux établis par la culture dominante. À côté voire contre la société, suivant le degré de répression dont elle fait l’objet. L’intensité et la rugosité du son des free parties, l’étrangeté de la musique au regard de la production dominante ainsi que l’agressivité délibérée du message non verbal placent le bruit en position de concept clef pour saisir la signification du phénomène. La techno cumule toutes les dimensions du bruit, comme une provocation ultime au postulat conventionnel de la musique. Au-delà, la techno irrite les oreilles de notre société pour des raisons qui excèdent largement le cadre musical. Mais la musique accompagne et est à la source de cette controverse, ce qui révèle l’existence d’un lien significatif entre le matériau musical et le phénomène social. Dans ce contexte de contre-culture radicale, la techno jouée dans les free parties mêle étroitement bruit et machine. Entre détournement et reproduction, l'instrumentation électronique est manipulée intuitivement pour produire un bruit qui se veut à la fois provocation et invention.

Abstract

In this work, an optimization model (MILP) for the energetic refurbishment planning of buildings is developed. It provides decision support for owner-occupiers and/or landlords. The approach considers simultaneously the selection of refurbishment measures, the operation of energy supply technologies (incl. CHP/PV), and the financing structure from an economic point of view. The evaluation scheme is based on a visualization of financial implications and factors public funds into the analysis.

Abstract

Carbon dioxide utilisation is a growing field of research that spans early stage laboratory chemistry through to commercial exploitation. In 2013 the CO2Chem Network (www.co2chem.com) made a successful bid to hold the 14th edition of this major conference. This was the first time it was held in the United Kingdom and attracted over 270 delegates from 32 different countries. It was a condition of presentation that all the work submitted was new and novel. We invited submissions of new work for this Research Topic and manuscripts were subjected to deep peer review. We are pleased that these papers are now being collated into an eBook. We value the range and quality of the papers submitted. These range from novel capture, integration and process through to policy, public perception and economic evaluation.CO2Chem was proud to be chosen to organise this prestigious conference. CO2Chem was founded in 2010 as one of the Engineering and Physical Sciences (EPSRC) Grand Challenge Networks. It is now in its eighth year of operation and its third round of direct funding. It continues to be a forum for discussion and collaboration nationally and globally. We have for a long time associated ourselves with ICCDU and will continue to do so in the future. We hope that the papers presented here serve as a catalyst to further research in CDU and to engagement with ICCDU.

Abstract

Der Diskurs um die Entstehung einer gemeinsamen europäischen Kulturlandschaft hat bisher zwei Aspekte vernachlässigt, die gerade für die junge Generation zentral sind, Körperlichkeit und Kreativität. Daher fragen die Beiträger_innen dieses Bandes einesteils nach den sozialpolitischen, ökonomischen bzw. pädagogischen Bedingungen kreativer Entfaltung. Andernteils beleuchten sie spielerische Techniken der Selbst(er)findung, Körpergestaltung und Selbstdarstellung (HipHop, Tattoo, Techno) bzw. solche, die interaktiv (Tanz) oder medial (Videoclip, Computerspiel) einen Commonsense sich differenzierender Subjekte erzeugen.

Abstract

The high demand and depletion of petroleum reserves and the associated impact on the environment, together with volatility in the energy market price over the past three decades, have led to tremendous efforts in bio-based research activities, especially in biofuels and biochemicals. Most people associate petroleum with gasoline, however, approximately 6000 petroleum-derived products are available on the market today. Ironically, these petroleum-derived products have not elicited a high level of interest among the populace and media due, in part, to little awareness of the origins of these important products. Given the finite nature of petroleum, it is critical to devote substantial amounts of energy and resources on the development of renewable chemicals, as is currently done for fuels. Theoretically, the bioproduction of gasoline-like fuels and the 6000 petroleum-derived products are within the realm of possibility since our aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems contain abundant and diverse microorganisms capable of catalyzing unlimited numbers of reactions. Moreover, the fields of synthetic biology and metabolic engineering have evolved to the point that a wide range of microorganisms can be enticed or manipulated to catalyze foreign, or improve indigenous, biosynthetic reactions. To increase the concentration of products of interest and to ensure consistent productivity and yield, compatible fermentation processes must be used. Greater agricultural and chemical production during the past three decades, due in part to population increase and industrialization, has generated increasing levels of waste, which must be treated prior to discharge into waterways or wastewater treatment plants. Thus, in addition to the need to understand the physiology and metabolism of microbial catalysts of biotechnological significance, development of cost-effective fermentation strategies to produce biofuels and chemicals of interests while generating minimal waste, or better yet, converting waste into value-added products, is crucial. In this Special Issue, we invite authors to submit original research and review articles that increase our understanding of fermentation technology vis-à-vis production of liquid biofuels and biochemicals, and fermentation strategies that alleviate product toxicity to the fermenting microorganism while enhancing productivity. Further, original research articles and reviews focused on anaerobic digestion, production of gaseous biofuels, fermentation optimization using modelling and simulations, metabolic engineering, or development of tailor-made fermentation processes are welcome.

Abstract

Climate change is one of the main threats to modern society. This phenomenon is associated with an increase in greenhouse gas (GHGs, mainly carbon dioxide—CO2) emissions due to anthropogenic activities. The main causes are the burning of fossil fuels and land use change (deforestation). Climate change impacts are associated with risks to basic needs (health, food security, and clean water), as well as risks to development (jobs, economic growth, and the cost of living). The processes involving CO2 capture and storage are gaining attention in the scientific community as an alternative for decreasing CO2 emissions, reducing its concentration in ambient air. The carbon capture and storage (CCS) methodologies comprise three steps: CO2 capture, CO2 transportation, and CO2 storage. Despite the high research activity within this topic, several technological, economic, and environmental issues as well as safety problems remain to be solved, such as the following needs: increase of CO2 capture efficiency, reduction of process costs, and verification of the environmental sustainability of CO2 storage.

Abstract

Mike Mosher’s “Some Aspects of Californian Cyberpunk” vividly reminds us of the influence of West Coast counterculture on cyberpunks, with special emphasis on 1960s theoretical gurus such as Timothy Leary and Marshall McLuhan, who explored the frontiers of inner space as well as the global village. Frenchy Lunning’s “Cyberpunk Redux: Dérives in the Rich Sight of Post-Anthropocentric Visuality” examines how the heritage of Ridley Scott’s techno-noir film

Abstract

The idea of preparing an Energies Special Issue on “Structural Prognostics and Health Management in Power & Energy Systems” is to compile information on the recent advances in structural prognostics and health management (SPHM). Continued improvements on SPHM have been made possible through advanced signature analysis, performance degradation assessment, as well as accurate modeling of failure mechanisms by introducing advanced mathematical approaches/tools. Through combining deterministic and probabilistic modeling techniques, research on SPHM can provide assurance for new structures at a design stage and ensure construction integrity at a fabrication phase. Specifically, power and energy system failures occur under multiple sources of uncertainty/variability resulting from load variations in usage, material properties, geometry variations within tolerances, and other uncontrolled variations. Thus, advanced methods and applications for theoretical, numerical, and experimental contributions that address these issues on SPHM are desired and expected, which attempt to prevent overdesign and unnecessary inspection and provide tools to enable a balance between safety and economy to be achieved. This Special Issue has attracted submissions from China, USA, Portugal, and Italy. A total of 26 submissions were received and 11 articles finally published.
