Environmental Label PLUS / Umweltzeichen PLUS (UZ+): Extension of the Austrian Environmental Label towards Sustainability
Aspects of sustainable beyond pure ecological goals become increasingly important for consumers, corporations and the general public. The well-known Austrian Environmental Label should be extended to meet these comprehensive requirements.
Environmental, Material Flow and Sustainability Management Accounting - Offensive diffusion in adult education
Diffusion of the "Factory of Tomorrow" project line on environmental and material flow cost accounting (EMA and MFCA) for corporate and national system boundaries, as well as related tools for sustainability accounting in existing post graduate studies.
Preparation tool for the bank rating; model and indicators - concept for communication and technological options.
The present research proposal focused on the possibility, implications and consequences of "inwards urban expansion" through densification of the existing urban tissue. In this context, densification is not only approached through known and common aspects of building regulations and guidelines, but in view of what is actually possible to achieve.
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.
Establishing a logistics concept for an efficient collection of biogenous waste as input for energy recovery in biogas plants.
The basic organizational and technical conditions along with possible obstacles and critical success factors are investigated.
Establishment of a "Sustainability Label for repair-friendly constructed electr(on)ic household appliances (brown and white goods) as a shopping guideline for consumers"
The scope of the project comprises the development of criteria for a Sustainability Label for repair-friendly constructed appliances, marketing and PR activities with a focus on producers and consumers, training of auditors and labelling of at least one product.
Evaluation of mechanical class room ventilation systems in Austria and generation of a planning guideline
Accumulation of technical solutions and practical experience of schools (kindergarten) with mechanical ventilation systems and identification of how pupils and teachers accept the systems.
Evaluation of solar-thermal energy stores using a uniform and marketable system of characteristic numbers
Comparison of solar-thermal energy stores A clear and uniform system of characteristic numbers enables a cost-saving comparison of the efficiency of solar-thermal energy stores of different technologies for the first time and gives important impulses for the market.
In the passive house Utendorfgasse a room–by-room temperature control was installed in 11 apartments. The experiences were evaluated from a technological and from a sociological point of view.
Under the project "Building of tomorrow live" over a year long several excursions to "Building of tomorrow" demonstration projects and other passive houses were organised. Sightseeing opportunities were surveyed, updated several times and published on the web.
The aim of the exhibition is to show the compatibility of the building quality standard "Passive House-Standard" with the requirements of the best architectural design with well-chosen examples and explanations. In this way these Austrian cultural and technical achievements shall be made more public.
Exploration of window systems with innovative glass - especially vacuum insulating glass - for building renovation
Exploration of the use of the first fabricable highly insulating vacuum glazing (VG) for highly efficient window systems specifically for the renovation of existing buildings via Verification of the availability and performance of Vacuum Glazing VG worldwide, concepts for structural optimization and thermal simulations of integrated systems, investigation of typical applications and market potential studies and identification of achievable energy savings for single buildings and settlements.
FABRIKregio - Development, test and spreading of models for the self-evaluation of sustainability at enterprise level under special consideration of regional successful factors
The project provides enterprises with a new self-evaluation model, which serves the purpose to support sustainable decisions. Focal point and innovation are: more active participation of the employees and better consideration of regional economic factors for success.
Development of technique and components for the production of back ventilation-free thermal flat collectors.
Analysis of technical, economical and regulatory conditions to get fair terms under competition in the liberalised market for virtual power plants on renewable energy basis.
Feasibility concept for a customer-focused and resource-efficient production of wood-products, considering a parquet factory as an example
An innovative approach aiming higher resource-efficiency and added value by using new quality standards and production systems in parquet industry. A customer friendly product will be possible by combining industrial production methods with the flexibilty of a manufacture.
Feasibility concept for the extensive implementation of information systems on Geographic basis in forest associations
The introduction of spacious information systems on GIS basis (geographical information system) in the forest federations of Austria and Bavaria is examined. This offers for the first time the possibility to connect biological and technical characteristics (attributes) with geographical data to compensate for the disadvantages of small structured forest estates. A substantial goal is also the development of a scanner method for the automated, EDP-supported identification of forests and their most important ground and stock characteristics.
A feasibility study of innovative absorption heat pump processes for strategic orientation and further development of heat pumping technology and its applications.
Method for assessment of technological aspects of biogas supply to existing gas grids. Definition of characteristic numbers for quantitative an qualitative analysis. Aspects of systems integration.
