Identification of services, wood and non-wood products in sustainable forest management
The ecological, economic and social effects of services, wood and non-wood products on sustainable forest management, the marketing potential and the relevance of sustainable measures are analysed.
Reduction of Broke in Paper Production
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.
Development of a continuous hydrogen-carbon nanofibers production line
With the development of a hydrogen-carbon nanofiber production in a continuous process carbon nanofibers can be produced in an economic way and at the same time access to environmentally friendly hydrogen is enabled.
Chemistry, process design and sustainable economic development
The results of this project were to deliver the basics for chemical process engineering taking into account the requirements of sustainable development. The proposed results will have to be in conformity with ecological, economic and social requirements for sustainability. Hence the processes will mostly be based on renewable resources.
Management of the loads of public water treatment plants - ARAFIT
ARAFIT develops a concept for the regional management of the loads of public water treatment plants in a partnership of planners, operators and major water consumers following the idea of sustainable least cost planning resulting in efficient, flexible and future oriented regional infrastructure.
Solar thermal cooling system consisting of a parabolic trough collector field and a steam jet ejector chiller
A solar thermal cooling system consisting of a parabolic trough collector field and a steam jet ejector chiller has been developed. The necessary components were built and tested and finally put together to get an operating pilot plant at the test facility.
Development of a method and an innovative machine for the industrial application of environmentally friendly, mineral oil free lubricants in deep drawing processes
Eliminating the usage of mineral oil based lubricants in deep drawing processes by an innovative machine for clean application of environmentally friendly wax-based forming emulsions.
Production management for sawmills based on flow of material, energy and production orders
A comprehensive planning approach for the short term flow of material, energy and production orders in sawmills in order to improve the value added in the wood supply network.
Essential oils instead of neurotoxic substance - protection from pest by the use of innovative application of pheromones
Corn production in Europe is seriously threatened by a new pest. Highly toxic insecticides are currently the only means of control. Biological signals (Semiochemicals) offer an environmentally friendly alternative, which is yet to be made available for corn as for many other crop plants.
PSS Strategies - Development of strategies for designing and implementing sustainable Product-Servicesystems
Based on a previous FdZ project it is intended to develop and implement strategies for sector specific sustainable product-servicesystems-innovations along product-chains in workshops with companies and other actors involved. Focus will be placed on implementation and possible restricting factors.
ZERMET - Zero Emission Retrofitting For Existing Textile Plants
Minimisation of the consumption of water, chemicals and energy in the textile industry. Further development of the ZERMEG approach in the form of a questionnaire and application in the textile industry.
Ecoleasing for technical commodity goods - Models of use on the example of abrasives
The aim of the project is, to come to general expressions on one hand of the market potential and on the other hand of the restrictions for ecoleasing in the field of technical commodity goods. Within the project an evaluation on the relevance of ecoleasing for the sustainable development will also be done.
educational Ecodesign game
Development of a concept and method for the required data for an Ecodesign learning game. The intended use of this game is in schools and youth organisations for disseminating basis knowledge of sustainable product development to support green consumption.
Fibre composites with natural adhesive
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.
