6. Tavoos Hassan Bhat , Guo Jiawen and Hooman Farzaneh , Air Pollution Health Risk Assessment (AP-HRA), Principles and Applications, International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 2021, 18(4), 1935, 2021.02, Air pollution is a major public health problem. A significant number of epidemiological studies have found a correlation between air quality and a wide variety of adverse health impacts emphasizing a considerable role of air pollution in the disease burden in the general population ranging from subclinical effects to premature death. Health risk assessment of air quality can play a key role at individual and global health promotion and disease prevention levels. The Air Pollution Health Risk Assessment (AP-HRA) forecasts the expected health effect of policies impacting air quality under the various policy, environmental and socio-economic circumstances, making it a key tool for guiding public policy decisions. This paper presents the concept of AP-HRA and offers an outline for the proper conducting of AP-HRA for different scenarios, explaining in broad terms how the health hazards of air emissions and their origins are measured and how air pollution-related impacts are quantified. In this paper, seven widely used AP-HRA tools will be deeply explored, taking into account their spatial resolution, technological factors, pollutants addressed, geographical scale, quantified health effects, method of classification, and operational characteristics. Finally, a comparative analysis of the proposed tools will be conducted, using the SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) method..
7. Hooman Farzaneh, Ladan Malehmirchegini, Adrian Bejan, Taofeek Afolabi, Alphonce Mulumba and Precious P. Daka , Artificial Intelligence Evolution in Smart Buildings for Energy Efficiency, Applied Sciences, 2021, 11(2), 763, 2021.01, The emerging concept of smart buildings, which requires the incorporation of sensors and big data (BD) and utilizes artificial intelligence (AI), promises to usher in a new age of urban energy efficiency. By using AI technologies in smart buildings, energy consumption can be reduced through better control, improved reliability, and automation. This paper is an in-depth review of recent studies on the application of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in smart buildings through the concept of a building management system (BMS) and demand response programs (DRPs). In addition to elaborating on the principles and applications of the AI-based modeling approaches widely used in building energy use prediction, an evaluation framework is introduced and used for assessing the recent research conducted in this field and across the major AI domains, including energy, comfort, design, and maintenance. Finally, the paper includes a discussion on the open challenges and future directions of research on the application of AI in smart buildings..

Adriana Gomez-Sanabria, Eric Zusman, Lena Hoglund-Isaksson, Zbigniew Klimont, So-Young Lee, Kaoru Akahoshi, Hooman Farzaneh, Chairunnisa, Sustainable wastewater management in Indonesia's fish processing industry: Bringing governance into scenario analysis, Journal of Environmental Management ,, 2020, 2020.09, The government of Indonesia has pledged to meet ambitious greenhouse gas mitigation goals in its Nationally Determined Contribution as well as reduce water pollution through its water management policies. A set of technologies could conceivably help achieving these goals simultaneously. However, the installation and widespread application of these technologies will require knowledge on how governance affects the implementation of existing policies as well as cooperation across sectors, administrative levels, and stakeholders. This paper integrates key governance variables--involving enforcement capacity, institutional coordination and multi-actor networks--into an analysis of the potential impacts on greenhouse gases and chemical oxygen demand in seven wastewater treatment scenarios for the fish processing industry in Indonesia. The analysis demonstrates that there is an increase of 24% in both CH4 and CO2 emissions between 2015 and 2030 in the business-as-usual scenario due to growth in production volumes. Interestingly, in scenarios focusing only on strengthening capacities to enforce national water policies, expected total greenhouse gas emissions are about five times higher than in the business-as-usual in 2030; this is due to growth in CH4 emissions during the handling and landfilling of sludge, as well as in CO2 generated from the electricity required for wastewater treatment. In the scenarios where there is significant cooperation across sectors, administrative levels, and stakeholders to integrate climate and water goals, both estimated chemical oxygen demand and CH4 emissions are considerably lower than in the business-as-usual and the national water policy scenarios..

Hooman Farzaneh and WANG Xin, Environmental and Economic Impact Assessment of the Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) in Shanghai, China, APN Science Bulletin,, 2020, 10 (1) 26-33, 2020.04, NATIONAL ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE and international negotiations are interlinked and mutually reinforcing. The international negotiations in the past years have stimulated national action, especially on Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) meaning development with the minimal output of emissions. This research will try to develop effective science-policy interaction to discuss the opportunities where LEDS can be used to support energy system, environmental, and economic development planning strategies in the city of Shanghai, China. In this paper, we argue that the urgency of bold and timely LEDS coupled with the social, environmental, and economic opportunities. With this in mind, we elaborate an interest-oriented approach to mobilizing multiple benefits of the Shanghai Master Plan as one of the essential LEDS in this city and argue that multiple benefits assessments can be important drivers of ambitious and effective social policy..
19. Hooman Farzaneh, Design of a Hybrid Renewable Energy System Based on Supercritical Water Gasification of Biomass for Off-Grid Power Supply in Fukushima, Energies, 2019, 12(14), 2708, 2019.10, This paper proposes an innovative hydrogen-based hybrid renewable energy system
(HRES), which can be used to provide electricity, heat, hydrogen, and water to the small community
in remote areas. The HRES introduced in this study is based on the integration of solar power
generation, hydrogen generation from supercritical water gasification (SCWG) of wet biomass
feedstock, hydrogen generation from solar water electrolysis, and a fuel cell to convert hydrogen to
electricity and heat. The wet biomass feedstock contains aqueous sludge, kitchen waste, and organic
wastewater. A simulation model is designed and used to investigate the control strategy for the
hydrogen and electricity management through detailed size estimation of the system to meet the
load requirements of a selected household area, including ten detached houses in a subject district
around the Shinchi station located in Shinchi-machi, Fukushima prefecture, Japan. As indicated by
results, the proposed HRES can generate about 47.3 MWh of electricity and about 2.6 ton of hydrogen
per annum, using the annual wet biomass consumption of 98 tons, with a Levelized Cost of Energy
(electricity and heat) of the system at 0.38 $/kWh. The implementation of the proposed HRES in the
selected residential area has GHG emissions reduction potential of about 21 tons of CO2-eq per year..

Puppim de Oliveira , Benjamin McLellan and Hideaki Ohgaki, Towards a Low Emission Transport System: Evaluating the Public Health and Environmental Benefits, Energies, 2019, 12(19), 3747, 2019.12, Climate change mitigation strategies oer significant societal co-benefits such as
improvement in public health, air quality, local economy, and even safety. By considering these
co-benefits during the transportation planning process, local governments would be able to link their
local appreciate mitigation actions into the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), where diverse
objectives should be achieved simultaneously. This study first clarifies the co-benefits approach to
climate change mitigation in the transport system, by introducing an integrated multiple-impact
framework known as A-S-I (Avoid-Shift-Improve) to evaluate the co-benefits. Thereafter, it applies
the quantitative modeling approach to assess public health and environmental co-benefits of the
implementation of the Tehran Transportation Master Plan, “the TTMP” in the city of Tehran, Iran,
which includes targeted interventions such as shifting from private vehicles to the urban transport
system, improving vehicle technologies and introducing alternative fuels. The results from the
application of “the TTMP” reveal a significant reduction of CO2 and other local air pollutant emissions
by 12.9 and 1.4 million tons, respectively, prevention of about 10,000 mortality cases, and more than
USD 35 million savings by 2030.

Ishihara , Hiroshi Takagi , Volker Roeber, 100% renewable energy system in Japan: Smoothening and ancillary services, Applied Energy, 224 (2018) 698-707, 2018.06, In the aftermath of the Paris Agreements, many countries around the globe have pledged to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions being released into the atmosphere. To do so, it is important that the amount of renewable energy in the electricity grid increases. However, there are worries of the capacity of the grid to cope with intermittent energy sources. To assess the feasibility of a 100% renewable energy system in Japan, the authors conducted an hourly simulation of future electricity production based on wind, solar and tidal data. The system was shown to be stable, and the authors calculated the required capacity of electrical batteries that would be necessary to balance such a system..
