CLIENT Vietnam project MAREX

Funding: Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF)
Duration: 01.09.2015 – 31.08.2018

Many cities in Vietnam have experienced a construction boom in recent years, which has led to a rapid increase in resource consumption. Combined with this boom, the result was a rapid increase in the extraction of raw materials in the surrounding areas of the metropolises. In July 2015, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) approved the MAREX project, which was scheduled to run for three years. The joint project aimed to map the material flows in the building materials industry in the capital city of Ha Noi and its surrounding area. The goal was to determine the effects on the environment as well as the resulting land use conflicts and to identify technical solutions for reducing the environmental impact. The empirical studies focused on Hoa Binh Province, which is a focal point for the extraction of raw materials for the construction industry. 

The joint project comprises four subprojects, of which each project pursues different methodological-conceptual approaches, complementing each other in terms of the overall objective. RIM has worked on subproject 1, which aimed to acquire relevant geodata and gain knowledge about mining, resulting environmental problems, and land use conflicts. Environmental impacts were recorded, modeled, assessed and monitored using an indicator system and methods of geoinformatics and remote sensing. At the same time, RIM developed a tool to monitor mining activities including their environmental impacts.

Location & approach

The TU Dort­mund campus is located near the Dort­mund West interchange, where the A45 Sauerland line crosses the B1/A40 Ruhr expressway. The Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Cam­pus, while the Dort­mund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Cam­pus. Coming from the A45, you can turn onto Stockumer Straße via Universitätsstraße. This in turn is connected to Baroper Straße, along which Cam­pus South extends. If you take the exit of the A-40, the route via Emil-Figge Straße, Marie-Curie Allee to Baroper Straße is appropriate. If you turn from Baroper Straße into Au­gust-Schmidt Straße, you have the opportunity to reach the parking lot directly behind the GB III.

The South Cam­pus is connected via Stockumerstraße by bus lines 440 and 449, which run every 10 minutes. Cam­pus South can be reached on foot from the Am Gardenkamp stop, and the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station is also located near the Eichlinghofen stop. The bus lines connect to the U42 light rail line at the Barop Parkhaus stop, which provides connections to the Dort­mund-Hombruch district and Dort­mund downtown. 

From Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen, the South Cam­pus is connected to the H-Bahn network via the Eichlinghofen H-Bahn station. Line 1 runs here every 10 minutes, and the South Cam­pus is served by the Cam­pus Süd stop. 
A connection to Cam­pus North is also provided. Line 2 shuttles between Cam­pus North and Cam­pus South every 5 minutes.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dort­mund Airport (DTM) to Dort­mund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dort­mund Central Station, you can continue to the uni­ver­si­ty campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of in­ter­na­tio­nal flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the uni­ver­si­ty station.
