An instrument based on the "electronic nose" concept was developed with the aim of controlling an odour abatement technique, as the spraying of masking or neutralising agent, on a landfill area in Belgium. Models of odour recognition and of odour level prediction were developed and successfully validated in the field. Additionally to e-nose response, the influence of meteorological data was particularly studied. The project was conducted on a real size facility and in close collaboration with the manager of the facility. [less ▲]

Cette étude visait à estimer les niveaux et charges critiques des polluants acidifiants pour les eaux de surface en Région Wallonne. Elle faisait suite à une étude préliminaire réalisée en 1997. Ces estimations ont été réalisées pour 7 lacs situés en Région Wallonne par différentes méthodologies (modèle SSWC, la méthode empirique et le modèle FAB). Une évaluation de l'importance des fluctuations saisonnières, ainsi que de l'importance des apports anthropiques en azote a également été réalisée. [less ▲]

Dans le cadre de l'application du modèle mathématique PEGASE au bassin Rhin-Meuse, le sous-modèle relatif au phytobenthos a été amélioré par une description plus fidèle du compartiment « macrophytes ». Un suivi régulier a été mené, de 1996 à 1999, sur une dizaine de cours d'eau représentatifs de la diversité hydrologique, géomorphologique et géochimique du bassin Rhin-Meuse. L'évolution annuelle des biomasses a permis de définir trois grands types de végétation : cours d'eau à renoncules peltées ou à pinceaux (grès ou granites); cours d'eau à renoncules flottantes (calcaires); cours d'eau à potamot pectiné (marnes-argiles). Une modélisation non stationnaire de la croissance du phytobenthos a été réalisée sur 5 tronçons de rivière. Ces renseignements, ainsi que l'ensemble des 'données terrains' recueillies sous forme d’une base de données, ont permis d'améliorer prochainement le sous-modèle 'phytobenthos' [less ▲]

The provision of tailor made care, the search for cost containment and European harmonisation and unification have stimulated insurers, providers, patients and governments throughout Europe to seek for opportunities to establish new health care markets. The opening up of cross border care markets presents a good example. These markets offer health care services and products to patients in other countries than the nation which covers their residency or insurance. Although there are clear economic motives for cross border care, the number of patients which actually (can) cross borders is relatively limited: practice proves that current institutional frameworks can block patient flows. This raises the question how and which institutional frameworks have to be present or (re)designed in order to develop and establish an effectively functioning cross border health care market. This paper analyses this question in order to derive lessons and recommendations for future European harmonisation with regard to health care. Using a theoretical framework, which displays the economic motives, obstacles and possible institutional alternatives for cross border care, the conditions for the development and establishment of an effectively functioning health care market between the Netherlands and Belgium is explored. Using cross border care for rheumatological patients as a point of reference, it is shown that current regulations can hinder patients as well as care givers to engage in cross border care. On the basis of our framework, the consumption of Belgians consuming cross border care in the Netherlands is expected to be higher in comparison to the number of Dutch patients who consume care in Belgium. Conflicting interests among private and public specialists, general and academic hospitals, insurance companies and national government policies are also important stumbling blocks for cross border care. Our analysis shows that the most effective institutional frameworks include those that have a functional regional design: they offer the best opportunity to minimize on transaction costs and maximize the degree of tailor made care.

In the conception of the envelope of a building, the sketch design is a crucial moment of the design. The first drawing gives a concrete expression to the first choices of the project author, in respect of a set of requirements and of general preferences, expressed by the multiple stakeholders of the project, namely: the building owner, the users, the adminstrative authorities and the design team surrounding the architect. In order to help the stakeholders in improving this stage of the sketch design, the present study explores a multicriteria decision aiding procedure. This MultiCriteria Decision Aid (MCDA) methodology should be close to the usual design process. This paper presents the design and the decision aid procedures, in parallel. At this time of the study, the decision aid process is a first attempt to cope with this architectural design challenge. The floor is expected to react to the suggested presentation of this MCDA open problem. [less ▲]

In the conception of the envelope of a building, the sketch design is a crucial moment of the design. The first drawing gives a concrete expression to the first choices of the project author, in respect of a set of requirements and of general preferences, expressed by the multiple stakeholders of the project, namely: the client, the users, the administrative authorities and the design team surrouding the architect. In order to help the stakelhoders in improving the sketch design, the present study explores a multicriteria decision aiding procedure. This MultiCriteria Decision Aid (MCDA) methodology should be close to the usual design process. This paper presents the design process and the decision aiding procedures, in parallel.

We present the results of a phylogenetic study, based on ARDRA of the rDNA operon, of 38 Arthrospira (‘Spirulina’) cultivated clonal strains from four continents. In addition, duplicates from different culture collections or markedly different morphotypes of particular strains established as clonal cultures were treated as separate entries, resulting in a total of 54 tested cultures. Three living samples from Earthrise Farms ponds (September 1997), four freeze-dried samples from EF ponds (August 1996, February and March 1997) and a powder of ‘Spirulina pacifica’ were also included in the study. The strain Spirulina laxissima SAG 256.80 was used as outgroup. The 16S rRNA genes appeared too conserved for discrimination of the strains by ARDRA, and thus the Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) was selected as a molecular taxonomic marker. The ITS sequences situated between the 16S and the 23S rRNA genes were amplified by PCR and yielded amplicons of about 540 bp. The amplicons were digested with four restriction enzymes (EcoR V, Hha I, Hinf I, Mse I) and the banding patterns obtained were analyzed. Cluster analysis showed the separation of all the strains into two main clusters (Clusters I and II), of which Cluster I was divided into Subclusters I.A and I.B. Four freeze-dried samples from EF cultivation ponds (Summer 1996 and Winter 1997), as well as a sample of powder sent as ‘Spirulina pacifica’ appeared to contain a mixture of genotypes from Clusters I and II. No clear relationships could be observed between this division into two clusters and the geographic origin of the strains, or their designation in the culture collections, or their morphology. Direct use of cells for PCR seemed to inhibit the amplification reaction. This was overcome by the design of a crude lysis protocol and addition of BSA (Bovine Serum Albumin) in the PCR mix. In order to study in more depth the genotypic relationships of Arthrospira, we have obtained the ITS sequence of 19 cultures and 7 samples (living or freeze-dried samples from EF ponds, dried natural samples and one commercial pill). The data confirmed the existence of Clusters I and II, but also subdivided each of them into two Subclusters (A and B). In three cultures, simultaneous presence of types II.A and II.B was detected. It is likely that sequences of both types are contained in different copies of the ITS and that the three cultures represent cryptic duplicates of one unique genotype. The strains cultivated in the EF ponds belong to types I.A, II.A and II.B, while the winter ponds samples were a mixture of types I and II. Though there was surprisingly little sequence variability in the ITS sequences, we designed PCR primers which are specific for the two clusters (44 different positions) and for the four subclusters (2 to 4 different positions).

Sous cet acronyme anodin d’OGM, fourmillent des milliers d’entités concrètes issues des nouvelles technologies, et qui sont autant d’interfaces entre “ science ”, “ politique ” et “ société ”. Ainsi, ces innombrables êtres hybrides ne sont pas seulement scientifique, mais également politique et social, car ils ajoutent aux questions que se posent les scientifiques des interrogations sociales, c’est-à-dire concernant l’ensemble de la société. Les OGMs appartiennent à cette catégorie plus générale que l’on appelle la “ biotechnologie ” qui est le terme générique pour désigner toutes les procédures utilisant du matériel biologique. Toutefois, il semble exister une controverse à propos d’une distinction effectuée à l’intérieur même de cette classification. Certains font une différence entre “ biotechnologie traditionnelle ” et “ biotechnologie moderne ”, alors que d’autres n’estiment pas nécessaire d’en faire. Ce concept de “ biotechnologie moderne ” correspond aux manipulations d’organismes au niveau cellulaire afin de produire des organismes nouveaux ou altérés qui portent en eux les fonctions programmées ou désirées. C’est ce que l’on nomme le génie génétique ou DNA technology. Techniquement, les organismes génétiquement modifiés sont des organismes dont la construction génétique a été altérée par insertion ou retrait de petits fragments d’ADN. Dans le cas d’une insertion, le matériel génétique peut provenir de différentes sources de la même espèce ou de la chaîne d’une espèce étrangère. Ces techniques se distinguent donc considérablement des procédés traditionnels en biotechnologie tels que l’élevage (sélection naturelle des individus), l’agriculture classique, etc… L’enjeu de cette différenciation est important, puisque de celle-ci dépend le sort réservé à ces nouvelles technologies dans nos sociétés. La négation de cette classification a pour corollaire de supposer qu’il n’existe aucune rupture dans les étapes successives d’amélioration de la technologie du vivant, et donc de ne pas les considérer comme le franchissement d’un seuil. Cette approche des biotechnologies et plus particulièrement des OGMs n’a pas pour conséquence d’exclure ceux-ci de la définition du risque moderne telle que déterminée dans ce projet de recherche. En effet, dire qu’il ne s’agirait que de l’émergence de risques nouveaux ne comportant pas de caractéristiques différentes des autres technologies mises en œuvre, depuis la nuit des temps, dans le monde du vivant, serait sans compter avec l’incertitude sociale et le rôle de médiateur assumé par les scientifiques. Aussi nous sommes d’emblée confronté à un problème récurrent très souvent soulevé lors de précédentes réunions, à savoir, celui de la définition des problématiques et donc de leur mise ou non à l’agenda politique. Intégrer ce renoncement à la distinction entre biotechnologie traditionnelle et biotechnologie moderne, permet d’évacuer d’une certaine manière la mise à l’agenda des OGMs. Pourquoi créer un tel remue ménage, puisque l’on ne fait rien de plus qu’avant ? Ceci constitue indubitablement un bel exemple renforçant la raison pour laquelle le terme “ problématique ” a été préféré à celui de “ problème ”, puisque certains acteurs réfutent dès le départ cette définition même de “ problème ”. Toutefois, cette controverse au sujet de la nature des OGMs (biotechnologie traditionnelle ou moderne) semble de moins en moins vivace en faveur d’un consensus autour de la définition du génie génétique en termes de biotechnologie moderne. Dans cette étude de cas, nous avons privilégié l’analyse de deux moments d’expertise relativement semblables quant aux acteurs mis en présence, aux controverses soulevées et aux processus d’expertise mis en œuvre. Il s’agit des décisions d’autorisation de l’Union européenne concernant la mise sur le marché du soja et du maïs transgénique. [less ▲]
