  • Papadaki, D; Foteinis, S; Mhlongo, Gugu H; Nkosi, SS; Motaung, David E; Ray, Suprakas S; Tsoutsos, T; Kiriakidis, G (Elsevier, 2017-05)
    The life cycle assessment of several zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures, fabricated by a facile microwave technique, is presented. Key synthesis parameters such as annealing temperature, varied from 90 °C to 220 °C, and ...
  • Ampofo-Anti, N (CSIR, 2008-11)
    The inordinate quantities of resources used and pollution released by construction products identify construction as a critical sector for a paradigm shift in consumption and production approaches. The Life Cycle Assessment ...
  • Mashoko, L; Mbohwa, C; Thomas, VM (Elsevier, 2013-01)
    The South African sugar industry has a potential for cogeneration of steam and electricity using bagasse. The sugar industry has the potential to generate about 960 MW per year from bagasse based on the average of 20 million ...
  • Anochie-Boateng, Joseph K; Sampson, L; Agyekum, P; Ampadu, KO (2017-05)
    teep hill sections of low-volume (i.e. feeder) roads in Ghana are at high risk of slope failure, erosion, and drainage-related problems that ultimately affect the rural communities in respect of traffic delays, safety, ...
  • Vogel, JC; Fuls, A (South African Journal of Science, 2005-01)
    Radiocarbon analyses on 16 specimens of the Leadwood tree, Combretum imberbe, showed that they live for several hundred years. The oldest specimen was more than 1000 years old when it died and had an extremely slow radial ...
  • Grobler, MM (University of Johannesburg, 2009-10)
