Environmental and Climate Technologies

Environmental and Climate Technologies is a scientific journal published by Riga Technical University. The Journal ensures international publicity for original research and innovative work. A variety of themes are covered through a multi-disciplinary approach which integrates all aspects of environmental science:

  • sustainability of technology development,
  • cleaner production,
  • zero emission technologies,
  • end of pipe production,
  • eco-design,
  • life cycle analysis,
  • eco-efficiency,
  • environmental impact assessment,
  • environmental management systems,
  • greenhouse gas emission reduction and climate technologies,
  • waste management,
  • renewable energy sources,
  • solar, wind, geothermal, hydroenergy,
  • biomass sources: algae, wood, straw, biogas, energetic plants and organic waste,
  • methodologies of the evaluation of sustainability,
  • quality of outdoor and indoor environment,
  • environmental monitoring and evaluation,
  • energy efficiency in buildings,
  • low energy buildings,
  • zero energy buildings.



New Journal Issues Published

Volume 16, Issue 1

This journal issue is special as it is dedicated to the modelling of sustainable development with environment and climate technologies. The journal centres on the analysis and implementation of the systems dynamics modelling idea by modelling the behaviour of environment and climate technologies in different sectors of the economy. The articles in the journal show a fast progression in building up the systems dynamic models: defined systems, setting parameters and system borders.
