In its Regional Policy Statement for 2009-2014, the Walloon Government (Belgium) undertakes to make Wallonia a model of good governance. Applying this principle in the field of the environment needs to be based on a continuous, objective and strict evaluation of the evolution of the state of environmental components (air, water, soil, biodiversity, etc.), the pressures to which they are subjected, the resultant impacts and the measures taken to improve living conditions within our Region. Within this framework, the General Operational Direction of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment (DGARNE) realises reports on the state of the environment in Wallonia, in close collaboration with universities and research centres. A chapter is dedicated to the efficient use of water resources, including a life cycle assessment of anthropic water and rain water harvesting. [less ▲]

This paper focuses on transversal research of the role and influences of rail freight transport, as a part of intermodal transport in Belgium. A SWOT analysis of the current situation is conducted, starting from the actual weak usage of this mode of transport. Five different fields have been identified, impacting the economy and society. Each field indicates critical internal strengths and weaknesses for intermodal rail transportation in Belgium, and identifies possible future developments and setbacks. A Delphi-like approach is used, including a heterogeneous panel of experts, discussing and validating the SWOT results. To prioritize the characteristics, a survey on the different SWOT elements is performed, asking the experts to rate each statement on its influence and likelihood of happening, indicating the level of uncertainty.

This paper undertakes an environmental evaluation of bioethanol production, using wheat cultivated in Belgium. Cultivation steps are modelled using Belgian specific data. Wheat transformation in ethanol relies on industrial data. GHG emissions of the whole life cycle are calculated and compared with the default values given by the European Renewable Energy Directive. Belgian wheat bioethanol achieves a 5% higher GHG reduction than the one mentioned in the European directive but impact repartition is different with a higher importance of cultivation step in our case. Belgian wheat bioethanol complies with the current sustainability criteria but is also able to conform to further ones. Sensitivity analyses are performed on the importance of N fertilizers and associated emissions known as main important parameters. These analyses reveal non negligible variations and then a range of available GHG reduction when using wheat bioethanol. [less ▲]

The convective drying of a natural porous material, limestone, is investigated in this study, with both experimental and numerical approaches. The first experimental campaign, which focuses on the influence of samples’ slenderness, suggests the presence of a hydraulic connection layer between the porous water and the external environment, in spite of the very fine pore structure of the material. This hydraulic transfer enables the fast water evaporation at the beginning of the drying test, when external conditions drive the kinetics. Furthermore, the results show that this layer does not exceed 30 mm deep from the external surface, given the drying conditions of the test. A second experimental campaign aims to analyse, by mean of an X-ray tomography tool, the internal water content during the drying. It confirms that water transfer takes place within the limestone in two distinct stages. The first stage being faster than the second one with a homogeneous desaturation along the sample, it is consistent with the hypothesis of the hydraulic connection layer. Finally, the finite element modelling makes possible to identify the main mechanisms of water transfer, namely liquid convection and vapour diffusion. © 2014, Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht [less ▲]

Boom clay is studied as a potential host rock for underground nuclear waste storage. This experimental work analyzes its response under the convective drying conditions that may be applied in case of contact with the ambient atmosphere (during disposal drilling, for instance) or with gallery ventilation (because of damage in gallery lining). The drying kinetics is first established. In a second phase, the cracking and shrinkage onset and development are focused on, thanks to an X-ray microtomography device. The results show a phase of ideal shrinkage and a phase of shrinkage with desaturation, which are closely related to the kinetics. Cracking and shrinkage progressively develop from the drying surface, up to values representing about 3 and 12% of the cross section area, respectively. [less ▲]
