SuperHomes project aims to provide deep retrofit for Irish homeowners

Tipperary Energy Agency has been working on domestic retrofit projects since 2004, supporting the retrofit of thousands of houses. It has acted as project co-ordinator for a number of Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland grant schemes in Tipperary and Galway in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, ensuring a total energy reduction of 5.7Gwh (primary energy savings) and generating 245,282kWh of renewable energy. The residential sector in Ireland consists of an estimated 1.7 million homes. In the ...

The role of aluminium oxide content of GGBS on concrete in exposure to sulphate and acid environments

Over the last years great effort has been made in order to substitute clinker for less energy and low CO2 demanding materials. In many countries, it is popular to use GGBS as an additive material to meet these requirements and to improve the durability of concrete. The construction industry needs durable materials with improved properties. Following this objective, this work is a part of an ongoing project developed in the materials laboratory of  Casey Concrete, Co Wexford, in ...

Using innovation and leadership to bring about more efficient sludge removal for Tipperary

  Author: Patrick Moran, executive area engineer, Tipperary County Council In September 2011 due to inadequate sludge processing and high sludge removal costs from wastewater plants I turned my focus to see how this could be addressed for plants in my functional engineering area. Previously, operation of sludge holding tanks on sites resulted in watery, low, dry, solid sludge being produced and insufficient holding processing of sludge in the plants, with a knock-on effect from the ...

Coastal erosion: the main challenges battering Ireland

  Dr Jimmy Murphy, senior researcher at Beaufort, UCC Ireland’s long and varied coastline ranges from high rocky cliffs that can resist Atlantic waves to sandy beaches that seem to change with every tide. Many of our most beautiful landscapes are by the coast and it is largely unspoiled and rich in biodiversity. A large proportion of our population live there and it is the interface through which most goods enter and leave the country. Global coastlines are coming under increased ...

Planning and construction of the Clonmel Flood Defence Scheme

  Author: Cyril Mc Carthy, chartered engineer, Office of Public Works During the flooding of February 2014, residents of Clonmel, Co Tipperary, experienced a new and unfamiliar phenomenon. The prolonged and heavy rainfall saw the River Suir rise to flood levels that were four feet above the quays at the lower end of the town. This flood event differed from the all-too-familiar events of the past, in that the river was contained within its channel (see Fig 1). There was a palpable ...
