COST Action C25 is a large network of researchers aiming at advanced integrated methods for life-time engineering and sustainable construction. The publication of the Action compiles the achievements of the research activities in 28 participating countries and an EU Joint Research Centre in the broad field of sustainability of constructions. Volume 2 covers the methods of life-time structural engineering, design for durability, life-cycle performance, maintenance and deconstruction.

The main objective of Action E36 was to promote the development and application of modelling and simulation techniques in pulp and paper manufacturing processes, in order to e.g. reduce emissions and increase the productivity and cost-efficiency of the processes. The main benefit was hoped to be a better understanding of the mechanisms of the processes and their control loops, to help to find solutions for pending problems in the paper industry: improving the paper quality, optimizing the wet end chemistry, enhancing the runnability and reducing emissions by improving process design, process monitoring and decision support during operation.
In the long run this Action should also contribute to designing superior or new product properties. This book contains the proceedings of the conference of COST Action E36 on 12-14th May 2008 in Madrid.
