The experts agree that it is about time Africa features more prominently in global plans to manage air pollution. To this end, Ramboll is helping the African Development Bank with transport emission mapping and monitoring as well as capacity building in five cities around Africa.
Solar and other renewable energy sources can now compete with coal to supply power for light rail transit systems. At the same time, it’s getting easier to change motorists’ car use.
The growing numbers of immigrants in Europe are putting migration authorities under pressure. Ramboll restructured 10 German aliens authorities – to the benefit of the clients, the employees and the authorities. The combined approach was the key to success, say the German authorities.
High-tech measurements can minimise the cost of maximising recovery from existing oil and gas fields. “Ground-breaking technology,” says a professor at the Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre.
Much less rain and snow has become the norm in many areas around the world. The latest studies conclude that California will be among the regions hardest hit by water scarcity. We may not be able to control the weather, but with engineering we can control how water flows.
Cogenerating heat and electricity lowers costs and carbon emissions. One pioneering project will use the waste heat from the London Underground to produce district heating.
The small Danish company Afatek has a world record in recovering valuable metals and minerals from ashes. Ramboll helped make the process even more efficient.
In a time of resource scarcity and urbanisation, recycling and land development must go hand in hand. A new technology using recovered materials transforms formerly uninhabitable areas into prime neighbourhoods – benefiting the environment and economies around the world.
Contractors worldwide are starting to demand the implementation of 3D technology, and with good reason – they simply gain much higher returns on their investments.
Citizens in coastal regions of Asia could face some of the worst effects of global warming. A new study has been launched to identify the most effective adaptation and funding options to create the strongest resilience possible.
Trench excavation is the traditional method used to enlarge sewer systems, but tunnelling makes the operation smoother for the public. In the same area of Copenhagen 10 municipalities are collaborating on a major recreational climate adaptation initiative. The two projects combined lower the risk of flooding dramatically.
