The Restoration and Remodelling of Facades – A Permanent Necessity for the Conservation of History

Abstract

The article presents a way of remodeling old building facades, which have been subject to degradation, with the help of common software. There are two methods of reconstruction presented: the first method is using the Adobe Photoshop software and the second method is using the Agisoft PhotoScan software. A comparative study is presented, by showing the advantages and disadvantages of methods, as well as their similarities and differences. The building that is the subject of the study is one of the oldest buildings belonging to the university. It is noted that by combining modern technology (aerial scanning) and common software solutions, there can be found a fast and reliable response to the need for restoration and conservation of historical buildings.

Green marketing today – a mix of trust, consumer participation and life cycle thinking

Summary

A transition for a green, circular economy has encouraged companies to use new tools which boost sustainability. The purpose of this article is to discuss the consideration of life cycle thinking in green marketing as realized by companies. This theoretical-conceptual study aims to analyze life cycle assessment (LCA) as a useful tool for assessing green marketing goals. We also intend to highlight the importance of creating consumer trust for green business by displaying the green credentials of the products and activities. The article presents t he virtues and shortcomings of the LCA results relative to marketing management. As a result, the literature presents some gaps in terms of addressing life cycle thinking in marketing management and linking with consumer participation and trust.

One has also raised a question regarding the law on the subject. One has suggested the consolidation of existing regulations and introduced the likely new direction that is currently in preparation.

Life cycle sustainability assessment of municipal waste management systems

Abstract

Life cycle sustainability assessment of municipal waste management systems The core element of all waste management systems that determines further treatment is the collection, transportation and sorting of waste. There is a spectrum of options that ranges from the complete source separation of waste with little or no consecutive sorting to the minimum separation at source and the consecutive central sorting of fully commingle waste. As each of the collection - transportation - sorting methods has particular characteristics, in assessing the most sustainable solution, a number of factors have to be taken into consideration. To assist decision makers (ad exemplum local authorities), the authors of this article has specified environmental, economic and social criteria that need to be considered while designing the integrated waste management systems. They can be grouped into environmental effectiveness (conservation of resources and reduction of environmental pollution), economic affordability and social acceptability. The article refers to the authors’ research on “The application of life cycle assessment in the integrated municipal waste management” founded by DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst).
