From an idea to a trade product ready for marketing: Plant dyes for the textile industry.
Based on former FdZ projects in the area of PSS, EMA and Zero Emission PSS Water develops and realises a guideline with which sustainable water management in industry and public utiliies as a service can be offered.
Development/preparation of a mobile repair and service-point and pilot-implementation at large company sites or centres with high customer-frequency. Supporting of sustainable product-services - especially repair-services - in connection with efficient logistical and organisational processes in relation to product-service-systems; reduction of market-barriers and sensitisation of the general public for sustainable consumption.
Development of tailor-made ionic liquids as additive for coatings to prevent electrostatic loading in case of floors. The aim is to enhance the well-being in living areas to improve the quality of life and the quality of living.
Development of success oriented planning strategy for Austrian PSS providers based upon an analysis of best practice examples and international systematic PSS development approaches.
New cooperations between agriculture und industry are necessary to ensure the utilization of renewable materials. The project´s focus is upon natural dyes and their application in textile industry. The goal of the project is to create a contact institution which connects various suppliers of diverse plant materials, takes on the processing, and standardising of the natural dyes, and makes a product that can be used by the industry.
Step by step methodology for the development of future markets by the introduction of eco-efficient product service systems
In RISP a process model for the development of product-services is worked out, which consists of seven steps and so called "gates" between the single steps. The questions which have to be answered before entering the gates to the next step are derived from a failure mode and the effect analysis of the single steps.
Developing of suitable bonding agents, fibres and processing technologies for the production of form stable fibre composites made of natural components. Production of prototypes like boards and moulded parts. Material testing.
Development of a measurement and control system that detects paper deformation during production. Thus, broke is reduced, significant savings in energy use are achieved, and the economic efficiency is well increased.
Sustainable services in co-operation with the housing sector will be investigated, their effects on environment, employment, acceptance by consumers, hindrances as well as prerequisites for sustainable facility management and a new positioning of concierge systems analysed.
Developement of a concept of "service ozone as a special gas" has the main reason to support the chemical industrie, laboratories and others to substitute chemical oxidatives, which is a big ökological advantage.
The project aims a strengthening the market for sustainable Product-Service-Systems (PSS) by clearly identifying success factors and hindrances. Restraining factors and basic conditions are worked out on the basis of best-practice examples.
"Sustainable trendsetters" investigated the consumer group "cultural creatives" by applying the Q-methodology. It provides criteria for product development and promotion of LOHAS products and services in the sustainable textile sector and for sustainable tourism.
Development of wood-processing techniques employing high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations in terms of applications in the woodworking industry.
Developing and implementing product-service-systems in the IT-sector. Bringing the idea of sustainable IT-solutions for enterprises towards marketable models.
Concept development for establishing a service system "plant protection". Clarification of core issues and key factors determining the success of application.
Development of a concept for a product service system (PSS) in the area of surface treatment (varnish, laquer, paint). Instead of selling varnish and pain, the service of surface treatment (per square meter) should be developed for private and commercial users.
