Conceptual design, preparation and development networks areas with active grid operation and a high share of distributed generation. Create the premises for the implementation of innovative demonstration networks by involving of all relevant players.
Actuator based combustion optimization for fine dust reduction
By additive use of actuators in combination of adaptive algorithms a multi-functional logic for fine dust reduction in thermal gasification boiler systems for wood-combustion has to be developed in the context of a thesis at the TU-Graz.
Adjustment of the value chain in the mass-shoe-production to customized production by unitized products and processes
Main topic of the project is the incremental change of business logics in mass shoe production by changing product-push to customer-pull concepts. Results need to integrate the entire supply chain, add value to the brand and its products and contribute to the company's sustainability.
Adsorbent Materials of Residues from Corn Cob
Development and testing of processes to produce adsorptive materials from agricultural residues of corn production with focus on corn cob grit as oil bonding agent (e.g., applicable to the remediation of oil spills).
Agricultural Resources for Biogas Production
Genotypes of energy plants adapted to the location will be identified and specialist crop rotation adapted to the location will be developed. The fermentation process will be optimised and the methane energy model will be advanced. The efficiency of the biogas production will be enhanced.
Agriculture will become an important supplier of sustainable energy services for society. However, this sector can only fulfil this role if it operates on the base of sustainable energy provision itself. The project will determine the necessary measures to achieve this state for a concrete regional setting (eastern Styria) by the year 2020.
Alternative insulation made from modified lignocellulosic fibers
Wood as the raw material for a new insulation material
An innovative approach for facades with optimised noise protection and natural ventilation
The aim of this project was to advance the state of the art in the engineering of double-leaf building facades that facilitate natural ventilation while providing sufficient sound insulation. Realization of natural (window) ventilation is in some instances difficult due to a number of factors. Thereby, noise pollution (especially traffic noise) plays an important role. To address these issues, the project explored innovative solutions in terms of facade constructions for concurrent natural ventilation and noise control.
Analysis and evaluation of structural additional costs for passive house projects
Structural extra costs of passive houses decide whether these will become accepted at the market. Within the project the costs of several "Building of tomorrow" passive houses were compared. The results enable estimations for future passive house projects.
Analysis for positioning a R&D-focus on "Building integrated Photovoltaic" in Austria
This study investigates if technologies of building integrated Photovoltaic could be developed and produced in Austria for being competitive on the global market. What starting position of the national PV industry and research is given and what steps are needed in order to seize this opportunity.
Analysis of the high-quality wooden facade in extreme climates
The project "Alpine base Schiestlhaus on the Hochschwab, which was opened in 2005, represents a lighthouse project for the "House of the Future" programme as the 1st shelter in zero-energy house quality. After more than 15 years in operation, however, damages came to light. Within the framework of this project, analysis activities were carried out on the cause of damage as well as the development of new facade structures.
Analysis of the sealing water costs in the paper- and pulp industry
From all information should be made a tool for soul-searching, which allows all operators of pumps to calculate the possible reduction of costs (energy, cost of operaton, amount of fresh water, ...).
Anergy2Plus - Demonstration and expansion of an anergy network as part of a holistic energy concept and plus energy quarter
The overall objective of the project is to pursue and demonstrate a holistic approach to the design, construction and ultimately the use of the residential quarter in the context of energy supply. Especially in the area of thermal energy supply, a project with lighthouse character on the way to a plus-energy quarter is to be created by demonstrating the innovative supply concept based on an anergy network.
Antistatic coatings for flooring by ionic liquids
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.
Apple & pear cascade: more value added in the Mostviertel region through bio-cascading
Creating a concept for the bio-cascading of apple and pear pomace in the Mostviertel region for an increased value added through innovative local products. Development of strategies for the implementation of a pilot plant.
Application of the Stirling cycle for environmentally compatible cooling - systems analysis
Conventional cooling has adverse effects on environment (eg. ozone depletion, global warming). One option for environmentally compatible cooling systems for near ambient temperatures (-10 to -50°C) is the Stirling cooler with environmental friendly process.
Applications of the synthesis gas from biomass gasification - polygeneration
Polygeneration based on biomass gasification offers a great variety of applications of the synthesis gas. A fundametnal study will be carried out to assess technical as well as economical and ecological possible routes to produce synthetic products.
ArcheNEO - an energy-autonomous office park in Kitzbühel
ArcheNEO is a highly energy efficient office park, that produces more energy than it needs. It features an integrated energy concept that saves energy, uses renewable energies in combination with electric mobility and batteries as electricity storage and manages energy and was planned and built in Kitzbühel Oberndorf. The demonstration object will be multiplied and exported.
Architectural Concept for Musicians
Starting from the special needs of a specific user group, an Architectural Concept for Musicians will be proposed and realized, with Housing as principal functional usage.
Assessment of user requirements and technical feasibility of lightweight applications based on renewables
Assessment of user requirements was studied. Furthermore, the technical feasibility of se-lected lightweight applications based on renewables in the furniture and interior design sector is investigated through involvement of all relevant stakeholders (panel manufacturers - further processing enterprises - distributors - consumers) in the value chain.
