A system named ‘Our Indian Shop’ has been developed and presented in this paper. This system involves an android application, a website and an IVR system for online selling and delivery of agricultural products from farmers to the consumers directly at the market price without the involvement of any middleman. It provides facilities of online shopping of essentials from consumers’ nearby shops as the delivery options will be localized according to pin code to lower the risks of spreading of Covid-19. It also supports selling of groceries, vegetables, and medicines by relevant shop owners directly to the consumers. It enhances the employment as delivery personnel for economically backward people or daily wagers who have lost their livelihood due to the pandemic. The IVR system is to be provided to make all the above facilities available in the offline mode for technologically backward classes, for efficient working of the system in a digital divide environment. The prime objective of this development is to promote social distancing and provide efficient technical solutions for sustainability in the post pandemic world. Our Indian Shop is an all in one platform which provides the online facilities of shopping and selling as well as it will help to enhance the employment and prevent the brokerage charges.

AbstractThe rapidly rising generation of municipal solid waste jeopardizes the environment and contributes to climate heating. Based on the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways, we here develop a global systematic approach for evaluating the potentials to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants from the implementation of circular municipal waste management systems. We contrast two sets of global scenarios until 2050, namely baseline and mitigation scenarios, and show that mitigation strategies in the sustainability-oriented scenario yields earlier, and major, co-benefits compared to scenarios in which inequalities are reduced but that are focused solely on technical solutions. The sustainability-oriented scenario leaves 386 Tg CO2eq/yr of GHG (CH4 and CO2) to be released while air pollutants from open burning can be eliminated, indicating that this source of ambient air pollution can be entirely eradicated before 2050.

Fully enclosed noise barrier has been used to prevent and control traffic noise pollution because of its effectiveness. It has become the best solution for controlling environmental noise of high-rise buildings from expressways, urban viaducts and railways that cross the crowded downtown area. However, its high cost has become an important retarding factor on its application and popularization, so reducing the cost become an urgent problem. The research theory, structure frame, sound absorbing and insulating materials are investigated for the fully enclosed noise barrier, so as to provide technical solutions for optimizing the design scheme and reducing the construction cost.

Abstract The report presents an analysis of modern technical solutions for shore power supply of a specific class of passenger ships - luxury yachts for charter trips. The design data of a motor yacht in its different operating modes are considered, as well as the energy mix related to the fuel consumption at shore supply of the yacht during its stay at the port. The use of modern technical systems for shore supply includes the application of specific frequency converters, through which compatibility between the different voltage standards and the frequency for different shore power supply systems is realized. The costs of onshore power, compared to those of marine fuel, can be calculated from the current prices of onshore electricity and the energy produced from its own generators. The analysis of the basic design data of the motor yacht and the assessment of the energy costs on board, fuel economy and emission reductions will provide a clear answer to the advantages of the power supply from the shore of the vessel.

This chapter discusses water pollution control and abatement strategies in relation to emerging contaminants. The pollution prevention measures described in the chapter can broadly be categorized into four main areas that are highly interdependent: behavioral changes, new technical solutions to aid remediation of the environment, further research and data availability, and legislation or policy reforms. These main areas have been expanded in detail under 13 subtitles that are not only interdependent but also practical and achievable. The chapter demonstrates that if the proposed measures are collectively taken into consideration, then most of the United Nations Sustainable Development goals, especially the goals relating to water quality, would become a reality. The benefits of pollution control and abatement are widespread and far-reaching and can better the quality of life on the planet.

The paper presents an analytical discussion of how to improve the energy efficiency of the steam cushion system operation for a Thermal Energy Storage (TES) tank. The EU’s green deal 2050 target policy requires an increase in the energy efficiency of energy production and use, as well as an increase in the share of renewable energy in the overall energy production balance. The use of energy-efficient TES is considered as one of the most important technologies to achieve the objectives of this EU policy. The analyses presented in the paper of energy-efficient operation of steam cushion (SC) systems were carried out by using operational data received from three District Heating Systems (DHSs) that supply heat and electricity to one of the largest cities in Poland and are equipped with the TES systems. These three analyzed TESs differ in capacities from 12,800 to 30,400 m3, tank diameters from 21 to 30 m and shell height from 37 to 48.2 m. The main purpose of using a steam cushion system in the TES tank is to protect the water stored in it against the absorption of oxygen from the surrounding atmospheric air through the surge chamber and safety valves located on the roof of the tank. The technical solutions presented here for the upper orifice for charging and discharging hot water into/from the tank and the suction pipe for circulating water allow to us achieve significant energy savings in the steam cushion systems. Both the upper orifice and the end of suction pipe are movable through the use of pontoons. Thanks to the use of this technical solution, a stable insulating water layer is created above the upper orifice in the upper part of the TES tank, where convective and turbulent transport of heat from the steam cushion space to the hot water stored in the tank is significantly limited. Ultimately, this reduces the heat flux by approximately 90% when compared to the classic technical solutions of steam cushion systems in TES tanks, i.e., for the upper orifice and circulation water pipe. The simplified analysis presented in the paper and comparison of its results with experimental data for heat flow from the steam cushion space to hot water stored in the upper part of the TES tank fully confirms the usefulness of the heat-flow models used.

The scientific article highlights the synthesis of the research results to assess the effect of explosive pressure on the detonation of various quantities of explosives in order to ensure a predictable level of societal security. The results of the experimental researches highlighted in the scientific papers were obtained following the tests with explosive materials performed on different specially configured experimental assemblies in order to analyze the propagation of the pressure wave on a mobile platform with specially configured pressure and gas sensors as well as on the explosion pressure measuring sensors within two modern Kistler systems. The visualization of air pressure waves for the experiments performed with these working montages was done by using a high-speed camera based on the BOS effect applied on fast video filming with adequate quality characteristics on the number of frames per second and the resolution obtained.
