    Abstract: This study evaluates the use of the LCA methodology to quantify the environmental implications of incorporating Waelz slag as substitute of clay in the production of standard bricks. The results show that the environmental impacts associated with the brick containing Waelz slag are lower than those estimated for the conventional brick. This was observed in all life cycle stages. Besides, resources is the category most affected during life cycle of both bricks.

    Abstract: The evolution of the studied metal release with time from the CEN/TS 14997 standard is addressed at various pH values in the range of 4-7. The obtained kinetic results are a useful tool for the assessment of metal release from sediment under potential pH changes and for the performance of a pre-incidental planning before the implantation of CCS technologies in the North of Spain.

    Abstract: The present study performs an assessment of existing risk assessment tools literature to evaluate storage phase of CCS taking into account the mobilisation of metals from contaminated marine sediment as consequence of seawater acidification due to the CO2 leakages. The use of SOM allows the integration of variables in order to classify leaching tests conditions according to their similar leaching behaviour.

    Abstract: Adequate location of C&DW recycling facilities is a complex process requiring the assessment of several criteria. In this work geospatial criteria with a methodology based on GIS with a making decision process using AHP have been used and a final ranking of location sites has been obtained.

    Abstract: In this work, a methodology based in Multicriteria Analysis with the aim of locating C&DW recycling facilities has been developed and applied to a real-life case in Cantabria, a northern Spanish region. The region has been divided in geographical areas in which different alternative locations for recycling facilities have been assessed. One of these geographical areas was evaluated and a compromise solution based on economic, environmental and social criteria has been provided by Definite 3.0 MCA software. Four multicriteria analysis methods: Evamix (EV), Weighted Summation (WS), Electre II (E2) and Regime (REG) have been performed in order to obtain the most suitable locations. Analyses of the sensitivity and uncertainty of the results have been also carried out in order to investigate the robustness of the solutions obtained. Therefore, the main findings of this research have showed the robustness and reliability of the application of MCA methodology for C&DW site location
