IEA Tasks & Annexe
There are 7 results.
Biorefineries are essential for the transition from petroleum- to a biobased industry. The use of biomass as raw material for recyclable materials, chemicals and energy sources is essential and requires efficient and sustainable production processes. This project aims to strengthen national and international know-how transfer between research and development for membrane-based processes in biorefineries. The focus is on application, improvement and innovation in all aspects of membrane distillation.
Biorefineries producing a portfolio of biobased products or bioenergy are the backbone of the growing bioeconomy. IEA IETS Task 11 aims to minimize greenhouse gas emissions to net zero along different biorefinery pathways. Tools and methodologies for increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energies are to be summarized and disseminated to relevant target groups.
Energy and CO2 savings through circular economy, especially directly through carbon circularity (CCU), and resource and energy efficiency through industrial symbiosis are two key approaches to decarbonizing industry.
IEA IETS Annex 11 pursues the goal of developing industrial solutions to achieve extensive decarbonization of various energy sectors through integrated biorefineries. Decision-making tools will be developed to support industry in the development of sustainable bio-economy strategies and to focus on reducing of GHG emissions.
IEA IETS Annex 18: Digitalization, artificial intelligence and related technologies for energy efficiency and reduction of GHG emissions in industry
Annex 18 Task 2 provides an overview of the methods, applications and requirements of digital twins in different industrial sectors. The focus is on relevant solutions for improving energy efficiency and reducing GHG emissions. The potential of these solutions is evaluated and business cases and recommendations for action are developed. The interdisciplinarity and the international consortium enable the development of a network of experts from research and industry.
Industrial electrification can make a major contribution to CO2 reduction. The aim of the annex is a transfer of knowledge between the international and the state level. At national level, stakeholder engagement aims to clarify the topic of industrial electrification, compare roadmaps and resources, and analyze potential benefits from (joint) programs.
IEA IETS Annex 17: Membrane filtration for energy-efficient separation of lignocellulosic biomass components
The overarching goal of IEA IETS TCP Annex 17 is to strengthen the network of the Austrian membrane and biorefinery landscape.
