Welcome to Sustainable Living!
Sustainable living is the third symposium of Arise, and will be held on 9 October 2019 as part of the Sustainability Week of the University of Twente. Location: Horst C101 (plenary sessions), and HT1100/NH115/NH124 (parallel sessions), in building 20 and 24 on the campus map. We start with coffee from 10:00-10:30, followed by a splashing morning session with four inspiring plenary lectures by Marjan Minnesma from Urgenda, Christian Struck from Saxion, Rolf Oldejans from the City of Enschede and Herbert Berkhout, the CEO of SoundEnergy. After the lunch (12:45-13:45) we continue with three parallel sessions (13:45-15:45) on sustainable housing, sustainable mobility and sustainable consumption. The day is finalized (16:00-17:30) with a plenary lecture by Arjen Hoekstra from the University of Twente and networking drinks.
Arise is the knowledge network at University of Twente which focus is on innovation and advanced research in sustainability and energy. Arise’s symposium aims to be a highly interactive event for both seasoned experts as well as entry-level professionals and students. This symposium provides a unique opportunity to meet, share and discuss a variety of topics related to sustainability and energy, in a timely and influential forum.
The three parallel sessions each embody tracks relevant for sustainable living, and each represented by scientists from our faculties Science and Technology, Engineering Technology and Behavioral Management and Societal Sciences who work on a variety of topics with various angles to the overarching theme sustainability. We from Arise believe in the multidisciplinary approach towards a more sustainable society, and we believe it is highly important to connect! Therefore, this event is also a 4TU event, with speakers from other 4TU universities, as well as companies, local, provincial and national governments.
Registration is for free and includes coffee, lunch and drinks. We can offer this event without charging any money to you thanks to the great financial support from the Campus and Facility Management, Marketing and Communication and the 4TU Center for Engineering Education.
Schedule of Events
Plenary Sessions (C101) • Chair: Boelo Schuur
10:00 - 10:30 • COFFEE & REGISTRATION
10:30 - 10:45 • PLENARY OPENING BY VICTOR van CHIJS, CHAIR OF THE BOARD, UNIVERSITY OF TWENTE (C101)
Dwellings as system components in a sustainable built environment: state of the art and challenges
Components of complex systems are designed to a set of specific requirements with the aim to guaranty a robust system performance. The aim to arrive at a robust and future-proof built environment in the Netherlands requires the existing dwelling stock to be transformed according to requirements such as producing zero greenhouse gas emissions and providing a healthy indoor environment. The urgency of the transformation requires the AEC industry to adopt different methods for renovation and collaboration. This contribution addresses two challenges: (1) the need for an absolute performance quantification from dwelling design to exploitation and (2) to provide means for dwelling – occupant interaction.

Organizational aspects in providing Circular Infrastructure projects
dr. ir. ing. Specialist Infrastructure Construction & Circularity/Sustainability aspects
Since a long time Henny have focused on design and construction of civil infrastructural objects and the functioning of these objects within a social context. Applying the principles of Circularity, Sustainability, Asset management, design and supply-chain integration techniques for design, use and management of infrastructure.
After completing his TU degree, he worked for 27 years for the University of Twente and for around 10 years part-time for construction and consultancy companies and the province of Overijssel. In 2004 Henny defended his doctoral research into process related aspects within the infrastructure sector. Later on during his career his focus moved from technical topics to more integrational, management and organisational issues.
Since approx. 2.5yr Henny works to get infrastructure build and functioning from a circular perspective, this asks for a transition in the whole infrastructure branch, companies and the behaviour of whole organisations should move. Quite a task for society, not easy or quickly done!
Understanding the factors influencing the adoption of electric vehicles
Marlise Westerhof MSc holds a Bachelor’s degree as well as a Master’s degree in Psychology, both achieved at the University of Twente in The Netherlands. She has a background in Human Factors and Engineering Psychology. Since September 2018 Marlise works as a Junior Researcher at the University of Twente at the Department of Design, Production and Management. Her current research focuses on understanding adoption factors for sustainable & electric mobility.
electric Mobility as a Service: the development of an integrated and sustainable
Dr. Ir. Steven Haveman holds a Doctoral Degree as well as a Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering, both achieved at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. His doctoral research, titled “COMBOS: Communicating Behaviour of Systems”, established a method to communicate system behaviour of large and complex systems towards multiple stakeholders during conceptual systems design. His current research focuses on clarifying the complex electric and smart mobility ecosystems by capturing these in usable models and architectures for various stakeholders.

climate neutral concrete for student apartments in the middle of Sweden
I’m project leader for the area concrete with low CO2 emissions at RISE and for the project there we aim to produce climate neutral concrete for student apartments in Sweden. I began my carrier in industrial ecology by first construct building apartments and paper industries as building engineer and then going to chemical engineering at Royal Institute of Technology, KTH in Stockholm where I in my master thesis develop paper and pulp processes for avoiding chlorine bleaching. After further studies developing courses for Industrial Ecology as Lecture at KTH and do research on system analysis on circular economy on organic waste. From the 2006 I develop programs for climate neutral companies and products and work from 2010 as researcher at RISE were I develop tools for the Industry to do Environmental Performance Declarations and are active in different projects for sustainable built environment.

Biorefineries and circular economy approaches from a chemical engineering perspective
Boelo Schuur is Professor Separation Technology in the cluster Process & Catalysis Engineering. Key research field is sustainable separation engineering, including both development of new and innovative, more sustainable separation processes for existing chemical operations, and enabling completely new separations. In that last category, biorefinery applications and circular economy applications are key topics. This includes recovery of volatile fatty acids from fermented waste water and downstream conversion into high value chemicals, extraction of lipids from microalgae, and downstream fractionation of pyrolysis oils. In several occasions, the use of innovative technologies such as stimuli responsive materials for smart separations helps making these complex separations possible and more sustainable. Also in teaching, Boelo Schuur is involved in sustainability. He teaches BSc courses on industrial chemistry and processes, and a project sustainable chemical industry. Furthermore he teaches the MSc course advanced molecular separations.
