Low-Carbon Permeable Pavement Drainage Infrastructure: Potential Applications for Stormwater Management (2019)
Book Chapter
Tota-Maharaj, K., & Aziba, A. (2019). Low-Carbon Permeable Pavement Drainage Infrastructure: Potential Applications for Stormwater Management. In E. O. Nnadi (Ed.), Stormwater: Sources, Monitoring and Management, (269- 313). Nova Science Publishers

Rapid urbanisation and industralisation across the world is demanding infrastructure and construction to increase especially within the transportation sectors. The large amounts of construction materials required for construction and maintenance of p...

Changing demographics (2019)
Book Chapter
Musselwhite, C., & Chatterjee, K. (2019). Changing demographics. In I. Docherty, & J. Shaw (Eds.), Transport Matters, (327-347). Bristol: Policy Press

Older people are travelling more than previous generations, especially by private vehicle. By contrast there has been a decline in car use among the younger population. We highlight how many of the reasons for these trends lie outside the transport s... Read More about Changing demographics.

Modelling of a sustainable refugee camp drainage system for stormwater management (2019)
Journal Article
Ajibade, O. O., Tota-Maharaj, K., Hills, C. D., & MacLeod, C. (2019). Modelling of a sustainable refugee camp drainage system for stormwater management. Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology, 5(12), 2150-2161. https://doi.org/10.1039/C9EW00350A

© 2019 The Royal Society of Chemistry. A novel decentralised Sustainable Refugee Camp Drainage System (SRCDS) has been developed for the effective management of stormwater in the Dadaab refugee camp, Kenya. The SRCDS uses the principle of Best Manage... Read More about Modelling of a sustainable refugee camp drainage system for stormwater management.

Modelling the future impacts of urban spatial planning on the viability of alternative water supply (2019)
Journal Article
Hargreaves, A. J., Farmani, R., Ward, S., & Butler, D. (2019). Modelling the future impacts of urban spatial planning on the viability of alternative water supply. Water Research, 162, 200-213. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.watres.2019.06.029

Greywater recycling and rainwater harvesting have the potential to increase the resilience of water management and reduce the need for investment in conventional water supply schemes. However, their water-savings would partly depend on the location a... Read More about Modelling the future impacts of urban spatial planning on the viability of alternative water supply.

Reduction of Pollutant Toxicity Levels in Produced Water from Crude Oil Production Processes (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Tota-Maharaj, K., & Ngene, S. (2018). Reduction of Pollutant Toxicity Levels in Produced Water from Crude Oil Production Processes

Produced water from crude oil production process is imbued with various contaminants which makes it unsafe for discharge into the environment without adequate treatment. The weight fractions of these contaminants vary from one well to another dependi... Read More about Reduction of Pollutant Toxicity Levels in Produced Water from Crude Oil Production Processes.
