This article presents two case analyses of low-carbon technology transfer between Japan
and China. One technology is waste heat recovery power generation in cement kiln
(WHR system) and the other is co-processing of wastes using cement kiln, namely the
CKK system (Conch Kawasaki Kiln System). The WHR system has significant co-benefit in
the...

We developed a method for mapping residential areas using freely available satellite imagery. The resultant residential area map can be used for risk assessment (e.g. to estimate the population living in a flood-prone area). Our method can be applied for flood risk assessment in other watersheds in the future.
