INDICATORS OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF MULTICOMFORT HOUSES

The article analyzes the problem of carbon dioxide emissions in the construction industry and calculates the energy efficiency of an multicomfort house. The potential for energy savings and CO2 emission reductions remains largely untapped due to the removal of technologies from new construction, the lack of effective environmental policies and insignificant investments in energy efficient buildings.

30 YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC AND PEDAGOGICAL ACTIVITY OF PROFESSOR VOLODYMYR V. NYKYFOROV

For the first time, full data on the scientific and pedagogical work of Professor Volodymyr Nykyforov is published. The main stages of his work for 30 years are considered. The basic results of fundamental research and applied developments of the scientist are discussed.

Informational content of the high-scale magnetic and magnetometric investigations for prediction and monitoring of the geological environment

The main aspects of the study of the informational content of high-scale magnetic and magnetometric investigations are considered. It focuses on the analysis of information content of soil magnetism. Some examples of using this for solution of geological, environmental and agricultural problems are given.

Environmental safety issues temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions and organizational and legal framework their solution

The article is devoted to the institutional and legal framework of environmental safety problems temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions and rationale development strategy for regulatory support to overcome the consequences of the ecological crisis in the temporarily occupied territories, comprehensive program to overcome the effects of the fighting.

Formation of ecological culture, love to native nature in the futureworkers of law enforcement agencies

Here is considered the actual problem of formation of an ecological culture in the future
law enforcement officers as an important factor of love to native nature, small and big
Motherland, legal protection of legal environment

Contemporary architecture as a result of development of ecological building technologies and computer aided design

Currently there exist a variety of techniques and technologies associated with passive construction, energy-efficient smart homes, the use of renewable energy sources. The task of modern architects is the creative and innovative search for new functional and aesthetic architectural solutions that are technically and technologically conditioned to guarantee its users a healthy and secure life in a friendly environment.

Seismicity of Olesko area: ecological aspects

Earthquake of Olesky area and surrounding areas within the Lviv region and in particular some features of earthquakes in V. Mosty (1875) and Komarno (2007) as well as influence on a given territory from Vrancea zone earthquakes (in particular, the earthquake in 1838) are analyzed. According to foreign reports about the influence of the method of hydraulic fracturing on seismicity the conclusion about possible changes of seismic regime of the area and increase the possible danger to water resources of Lviv region from shale gas extraction were made. 

The results of detailed em soundings in the problem zone at the northern border of Dombrovsky quarry

The results of electro-magnetic diagnostics of the medium in the upper part of geological cut between river of Sivka and the northern border of quarry are presented. Time domain electromagnetic sounding has detected and quantitatively outlined a zone of anomalous conductivity associated with development of filtration-suffosion and karst processes in the gypsum-clay cap and in the ore body as a result of infiltration of river waters and atmospheric precipitations into water-bearing horizon, and their migration in the border zone at lower hypsometric dates.

Electromagnetic monitoring of environmentally problematic objects in Precarpathians: results and technological means used

Purpose. Designing both the apparatus and methodical means based on the classical methods of electroprospecting and their modification. Using this set for an elecromagnetic monitoring of environmentally problematic objects. The objects to be observed are ground dams, haloes of underground water pollution, mine fields, geotechnical objects. Methodology. High-speed technological set was created and had been studying in the environmentally problematic areas in pre-Carpathians (Yavoriv, Stebnyk, Kalush etc.).

Fields of Ozone Applications

The powerful oxidative action of ozone provides basis for development of novel or improved technologies which are widely used in ecology and industry. Special attention is paid to purification of waste gases, water, and soils.  The disinfection and cleaning of drinking and process water are considered in detail. Applications of ozone in chemical, pharmaceutical and perfume industries, cosmetics, cellulose, paper and sugar industries, flotation, microelectronics, and many others are also examined in the review.
